See what I did there with the title? :3
With school officially done for the year, there’s LOTS of fangirling and Real Life for me to catch up on! Because the entry is so long, I’ll split it up. RL will come later. So that means this is all fangirl. :D
This snippet of one of the newer NEWS scans is the perfect way to begin my holiday.
Besides the bottom half of Massu, there’s nothing particularly notable about this scan. Or is there?
Ryo’s shirt. RYO’S SHIRT. Noteworthy only to me because asdfghjkl THAT IS MY TOP CHOICE SCHOOL. *___________* That shirt probably means nothing to most NEWS fans but to me, I feel a connection almost, as though NEWS is calling me to go there.
Right, all the more reason to get accepted! /determined
Next shot is from the LIVE!LIVE!LIVE! DOME PARTY 2010 documentary. :D
I came across this shot before I had seen the documentary for myself. I immediately recognized KoyaShige on the left side of the shot. Tegoshi (looking really nice with that intense expression ^^) took me a bit longer. And for the longest time I thought that fourth guy in the black shirt was just a hot back dancer, but no! It’s Massu! :O
Since when did Massu get hot? He’s always the cute one with the chubby cheeks to me. I know I don’t like thinking of anyone as “hot,” but here… yeah, he definitely is. I love watching him dance. <3
Can’t wait to finish everything. ^///^ I’ve already begun watching the concert part. Finished the first disc, now onto the second!
I’ll spoil everything in a future entry, but for now I’ll just say that a few parts I remember loving are the Dancin’ in the Secret performance, everyone dancing all crazy for Be Funky!, the wonderful Tegomass interactions, Iitai Dake :D, and of course, all the member ai. <333
Oh, and I peeked through bits of the documentary too. About halfway through that video, all I gotta say is: they are such boys. :P No, they’re men, right? Hmm… nope, definitely boys. :D I can’t tell if they’re joking around or if some of them are being spastic like that for real.
I’m definitely not going in chronological order/order of importance, since this next part was from a week ago. NEWS on NTV’s Best Artist 2010!
They sang Kibou~Yell~ and Fighting Man for this performance. Even though the vocals of Kibou were… er… not the best, I’m happy they sang live. It’s better to sing honestly than to fake it, that’s what I always say. Better keep that in mind for your tour, Pi. I know you like the lipsynching and autotune, but if fans wanted to hear pre-recorded tracks, they would just listen to your CDs. :D
A shot of the Tegomass part during Kibou, because I’m biased like that:
I’ll end the image-filled fangirling section with Tegoshi as Kirishima. ^___^
I’m so shipping them now. The girl is Tabe Mikako and she looks like Massu. :Dv Yup, she even loves gyoza, and it helps that her character dresses weird. She, her fans, Massu himself — they all see this resemblance so it’s not just my fangirl mind playing tricks on me.
That’s not why I’m shipping her with Tegoshi or anything.
As for the manga itself, Deka Wanko isn’t all that funny. For a comedy. Maybe the humor got lost in translation, maybe I’m just humorless, who knows? I just hope the comedy manifests more on screen than it does on paper. Doesn’t matter, still excited for thissss~
Until next time,

P.S. I was seriously about to book a flight to Japan and mangle the bastards who had edited out Tegoshi Yuuko (as Alice) and Tuxedo Pi and Massu-centered second MC from the concert DVD. Really. I was that pissed.
But THEN news came out that Yuuko and Tuxedo Pi were hidden on the RE DVD only! Sneaky devils. Trying to squeeze every last penny out of the fans’ wallets by forcing them to buy both editions, huh? At least they were smart enough to know that they would die a most gruesome death at the hands of Yuuko fangirls if they had cut her entirely out of the DVD. I keep thinking back to the rage I had felt and I know… I would have been part of that crowd. XD
They still ended the video when the Yuuko molestation was about to happen, though. And Ryo had already taken off his shirt too. What the heck, guys, too PG-13 for the viewers?
No second MC sadly, but this makes up for it. Somewhat. Though I’m sure Massu fans are sorely disappointed. D:
OMGLOL @ Yuuko when she started singing. XDDD I CANNOT BE SMILING ANY MORE STUPIDLY.
Just… let me post one more concert shot. I’m so high on this.
