Read and understand.  


A few things:

1. No random adding.
Please, please don't do this. Adding people just to make your f-list longer isn't a cool thing. Really.

2. No bashing/flaming groups or people in fandom.
There are times when it's unavoidable but as much as possible let's keep our hate to a minimum.

3. Comment once in a while.
I'm no comment whore, but a comment or two in a month probably wouldn't hurt anyone. That's my way to know if you people are still alive. I mean, adding and not commenting would seem a little scary, huh?

4. No comment spams.
Things like, "Please join our [insert-JE-group-here] community/fan-club!" irk me. This is a personal journal. If you'd like to advertise things, do them on communities.

5. No "Add me, then I'll add you"s.
Sorry, I'm no friend-whore so if you'd rather be friends with that condition then I'm not the friend for you.

6. No stealing.
I make my own graphics (wallpapers, banners, etc) unless otherwise stated. To steal something from me would make you look like a fool since I don't even make the best things out there--though odd, because I've been stolen from once.

7. Have something in common with me.
I didn't think it needed to be said, but I guess the obvious must be stated. We should at least share a common interest because why the heck would you be adding me in the first place?

8. Comment on this post.
Just to make sure you've read everything, you should put the word "fries" anywhere on your reply to this entry. Unless you're some special person (RL friends, close LJ friends), the above is a requirement.

I guess that's about it. I'm in a state of blankness right now so I might've skipped a few ideas which I'll probably add later.

Ah, I get what you mean! XD I often feel that way with certain artists. D: Have you tried Aqua Timez's Niji? It's the OST for the drama Gokusen 3. I'm no fan of the drama, but I like the song. :D

Yep! There's one Orgel Collection exclusively for JE songs, too.

Well from your choice of bands/artists, I'm thinking you're more of a jrock fan, yes? I started with jrock too, but I've since moved to jpop (or more specifically into Johnny's lol). I recognize GReeeeN, Aqua Timez, redballoon and Yellow Monkey but not Stance Punks. D:

Hm, not sure if you already know, but GReeeeN was the one who composed NEWS' (yes, one of the JE groups) weeeek. It's a catchy and a pretty light-hearted song, so if you'd like, you can search for the music video on Youtube or something. :D (keywords: news weeeek pv)

Whoa. Kurosagi? Then you must know Yamashita Tomohisa (Kurosaki). He's the leader of NEWS. :D

At least you actually are aware that there is such a thing as Johnny's Jimusho. When I was still such an avid fan of anime, I never knew Johnny's actually existed, lol. JE boys are sometimes tasked to sing for anime OSTs so some songs may be familiar (e.g. V6's Change the World--Inuyasha's opening theme, etc.). I remember hearing SMAP's Kimi Iro Omoi as Akazukin Chacha's opening song when I was still 6 years old and never really knew who they were until 9 years later. XD

I've been doing a quick search for Johnny's Jimusho out of curiosity about what you said above... And indeed, they have large collection of boys bands. I remember I like V6's song for inuyasha too, and I recognized some of the names from oricon charts (arashi, for an example...). I used to like Kinki Kids too (Dohmoto Tsuyoshi, to be exactly. I watched some of his good dramas years ago). Anyway, right now I'm doing your recommendation and looking for NEWS' song. Downloading is still in progress, so I'm not in the position to comment on anything just yet... ^^

And, I'm a bit schocked because... I know I said I like GreeeeN's song... but I never know they're from JE too @_@;;;
All I know about them is they are a group of dentists... Well... I guess I'll have to check on wikipedia more often x_x;;;

About Stance Punks... err.. they sang for one of Naruto's early opening theme, I guess... I love their song for the second movie of battle royale. That's all I know about them (I have so little knowledge about them, and yet I'm claiming to be their fan!!??? <- well, this is exactly why I'm not grouping myself into a certain fandomness x_x;;)

Anyway... I like Yamapi and his song too ^^
By the way... from all of JE's talent, which one is number one as for now?
Years ago it was Kimura Takuya (SMAP, if I'm not mistaken), right?

YAY, you're trying out NEWS! They're my favorite group. :D Ah, KinKi Kids. I really like them a lot, too. Actually, KinKi Kids have their own show--wherein they interview certain artists and various music groups. :)

Ah, no no. I didn't mean to say that GReeeeN is from JE. What I meant was, GReeeeN composed NEWS' song, weeeek. :)

Which song of Yamapi? Daite Señorita? I think it was the theme song for his drama, Kurosagi. The theme song for the movie version of Kurosagi was sung by NEWS (Taiyou no Namida).

Well, I wouldn't actually say that there are rankings within JE. But when it comes to magazine rankings on popularity, Akanishi Jin (from the group KAT-TUN)is the most popular, usually followed by Kamenashi Kazuya (KAT-TUN), then Matsumoto Jun (ARASHI), then Yamapi, and so on. :) But for An An rankings, it is usually Kimura who tops the list. :D So far, the two most popular JE groups are KAT-TUN and ARASHI. :)

Yupz. I like daite senorita (it's better than seishun amigo IMO) :D
I've finished listening to NEWS' single. There are 3 songs in it : weeeek, with me and why.
Oh. I must look for taiyou no namida too (loves kurosagi so much ^^)
Thank you for the bunch of infos :D

You also know Seishun Amigo (Shuji to Akira = Kamenashi Kazuya & Yamapi)? Wow, you're super fast with these things. Do you also watch the music videos? Well, weeeek has a fourth song. It's called Rainbow. XD

Ahaha. No problem. :) I won't try turning you into a JE fangirl, but if ever you become one, don't hesitate to spazz with me. XD

I just finished downloading NEWS' album called TOUCH (it's an old album, no?) but haven't listened to them yet (celebrating my succeed in getting B'z's song called ONE, it's a low quality ones, but deserved a celebration I think ^^)

Having quite a long conversation with you makes me wanted to re-watch kurosagi, and yes... it's still good ^^
Does Yamapi always have the same character in every of his dramas/movies? I remember his character in nobuta o produce is quite the same ^^;;
Nevertheless... he's cool :D~~
i like crispy ones with cheese dips ♥takeoutfries on April 18th, 2009 03:07 pm (UTC)
Ah, touch is kind of old. 2005, specifically. :D That album features NEWS when they were still 8 members. The NEWS now has only 6 members.

Er, no. Yamapi plays different characters. But some people think his *blank* expression for all the dramas he appears in are the same. Well, you can always try watching other Yamapi dramas like Stand Up!, Proposal Daisakusen, Dragon Zakura, and Code Blue. Maybe you can try picking out the difference. XD

LOL. Yamapi is kakkoi, alright. Pretty funny, too. XD
yura_hirayura_hira on April 18th, 2009 03:26 pm (UTC)
Sadly, THAT blank expression is exactly why I like him ^^

Anyway, I'm off to go searching for those dramas' outline story. Hopes there are some that taken from manga (like kurosagi, he he he...) :D
