Sexy Zone Fans Annoyed Over Latest Jacket Covers


Looks like unfair treatment among members isn’t limited to Kis-My-Ft2, Sexy Zone fans are now enraged over the jacket covers released for the groups 4th single, “Real Sexy! BAD BOYS“.

As reported,

The said treatment inequality started last summer and with the recent jacket cover release, some fans who have made a reservation wanted to cancel after seeing the cover.

Sexy Zone’s upcoming single will be available in 6 editions (3 LE, 1 RE, 1 Venue LE, and 1 Shop Version). However, in those versions, Limited Edition B & C only has three members on the cover- Nakajima Kento, Sato Shori, and Kikuchi Fuma. While in the other versions, the three are obviously placed in the center while fellow members, Marius Yo and Matsushima Sou, were relegated at the background together with the featured Johnny’s Jrs.

Even though this is Sexy Zone’s single, not one jacket cover has the 5 members only. Moreover, Nakajima, Shori, and Kikuchi got more exposure for BAD BOYS while Marius and Matsushima were made to blend with the rest of the Juniors.

“I know that Johnny wants to put the juniors in the market but I really don’t understand what the office is doing,” according to one Sexy Zone female fan.

While the Juniors exposure may delight some fans, fans of Marius and Matsushima aren’t particularly pleased. Moreover, Matsushima’s absence during Sexy Zone’s 1st day of National Tour last Mar 26th became a hot topic and no explanation was given by the office.

Fans could only hope that Sexy Zone will continue their activities this year with all 5 members.

As a fan of Marius, and in SZ mostly for him ( So and Shori being the only other reason --')the treatment the two youngest have been getting lately from the agency deeply annoys me.

We could see it many times through lives and songs ( I mean, none of them were in Johnny's World ? Really JE? It s not like the three oldest did much in the show, or than boys, younger than them, were not in it --'), but it surely increased in January/February SC episodes and on TV program only the three oldest began to guest...

So's absence :During JW more than once (debuted) Johnny's missed the show, and noone from the agency had said anything or commented. Here, some fans got worried, because clearly So is unhappy with the situation...

That being said, I m not unhappy with them being with Sexy Boyz again. I prefer that rather than not seeing them at all, as it happened for a while...And the boys did comment how they would love SB to become a subunit, few months ( or was it 6 month-a year ago ?)

I m still NOT paying for anything of these sorts
