I`m incredibly grateful for all the fans who have sent their messages! It really touched me!
I hope you will enjoy this video and please spread it everywhere!♥
It's the time of the year when we celebrate our dear leader again, who turns 33 on May 1st. This year looks set to be another busy one for him with 24hr TV for the second year straight, so let's hope he takes good care of himself!
Never too late to send well wishes, so for those who'd like to send him physical cards/ letters, here's the new address for Johnny's Family Club (they moved in October last year, so please check to make sure the address you have is the updated one):
4F 3-29-24 Shibuya
Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, JAPAN 150-8550
Johnny's Family Club
Do avoid sending anything more than cards/ letters as these might be seen as gifts and get discarded or returned by the agency.
We'll also be leaving this as a sticky post for a week, so please keep all the birthday wishes to the comments section of this post! :)
Koyama Keiichiro (NEWS), Sakurai Sho (Arashi) and Kamenashi Kazuya (KAT-TUN).
There wasn't much further information announced, other than this year's theme - "Confession" (Kokuhaku), and that the show will be held on 26-27 Aug 2017.
This year's the 40th edition of 24hr TV, and there were guesses of the main personality being Arashi, or even a KAT-TUN come back, seeing how the announcement was arranged within the episode of "Arashi ni Shiyare" which had Kame guesting, but it turned out to be the 3 casters at NTV! So many possibilites of how this year's 24hr TV can turn out to be, it's so extremely exciting.
Will update more information as they come!
(Goes back to throwing imaginary confetti in the air)
Some of us have been brainstorming about how should we support Koyama because fans have started giving him hurtful messages on the uchiwas and sending messages to ‘news every’, too. It`s getting seriously cruel since the messages are mostly 'you should quit', 'you are disqualified as an idol' and 'die' (!!!!!!!). People are targeting him because of his relationship with a girl and as far as we know JE doesn`t do anything to protect him, since these 'fans' are taking these uchiwas into the concerts, and no one checks them.
We, as real fans, have to show that we are staning by him at any cost and protecting him from the harrasments!
One of our projects is his BD Project which is the one most far away, but it still needs time to make it done, so here are the details to those who are interested.Please, come, come, come! We need to do everything we can to fight back those ‘fans’ and show them we are stronger and even more than them!
The idea is making a video what we will post on Youtube and send the link to ‘K-chan news’ on his Birthday.
What you need to do is:
- Make a photo OR video showing your support to Koyama.
- You can make this message in English or Japanese if you can. If a video, just simply tell your feelings about Koyama and express your support in a short way.
- The video shouldn`t exceed 20 seconds.
- If it`s a photo, then you can make a drawing, you can write down your messages and take a photo of yourself with this message, etc. Anything what is supportive towards Koyama!
Twitter hashtag project!
I have suddenly got an idea. We have created three supportive hashtags for Koyama: #WeSupportKoyama #小山を応援します ＃慶ちゃんはパーナが守る And we are always using #小山慶一郎 of course. If you don`t feel like taking photos or making videos, or you just simply don`t have the opportunity, use this hashtag to show your support and write some message in Japanese or English. We will be making screenshots of these supportive tweets and put them into the video.
What is important: Avoid angry tweets and the ones clearly saying that it`s about his scandals. We don`t want him to think about the problems occured, we want him to read the loving messages. Your twitter name and DP will be included since we don`t want it to seem like it`s not real. Don`t forget to include your country, as well! :)
The size of the video is going to be 1280x720, so please keep that in mind while doing your project. :)
After getting the projects, we are going to make Japanese subtitle to the parts which are not in Japanese so he can understand your full messages. Please talk understandably and clearly. :) If you don`t want to take a video but still want to talk about your thoughts, record your message in a sound file [mp3] and send it to us. ^^
The deadline for the project is the 23rd of April until 0:00. [CET]
Send your project to this address: firstname.lastname@example.org
What is very important:
Name your country in the message! It is a must because we have to show him that there are fans throughout the whole world! :)
What we are asking in plus:
We haven`t decided which song we should choose for the video. Please, if you have any ideas, share it with us until the deadline of this project.
Our two ideas until now are: Tender by Blur [This is the theme song of Chikarauta.] and You`ll be in my heart by Phill Collins. We cannot make a Japanese song into the video because it might get deleted or muted.
Dear fans, who can sing or play any instruments (I have seen amazing piano covers on YT):
If you can, do a cover of Aikotoba and send it to us [if possible, before the deadline, but on the day of the deadline at latest.] If you do a cover, you can still send your project regardless, we will use the cover during the video. If we receive more cover, we will choose the best one for the video.
I think that would be everything regarding the project, but if you have any question, feel free to ask! :)
Also, please spread this project in your own languages and in any languages you can speak so we can increase the number of participating fans.
Thank you for your support in advance!

It has been reported this morning that Koyama and Shige will have a new Friday night variety show, starting July 3 at 24:20 on TBS. Update: this is not a regular show as yet, but there are hopes that it will become one.
Titled 「激撮！インテリジェンスワイドショー『NEWSな2人』」/ Gekito! Interi Jensu waido sho NEWS na futari / Must See! The Super Intelligent Talk Show with the 2 from NEWS
And there seems to quite a focus on the fact that they are a newscaster and a writer who are both university graduates. In fact this article, refers to them as “インテリジャニーズ”コンビ [Intelligent Johnnys Combi].
In the first episode, Koyama spends the day in Akihabara, camera in hand visiting maid cafes, while Shige visits the Tokyo DARC [Drug Addiction Rehabilitation Center].
Thank you! :)
It's been announced on the NTV site today that there will be another episode of it on 13th April, 23:59 - 24:54! This time, it'll be known as "4 vs X", and comedians Hakata Daikichi & Hanamaru and Takahashi Shigeo (Savanna) will join them as presenters.
Let's hope this means that they're one step closer to getting a regular programme! :D
Just read that Koyama's getting a new programme too, "Kyaraoke 18 ban", every Sunday 17:00 - 17:25, starting 12th April!
The programme will be co-hosted by Hatori Shinichi (who's currently hosting Mirai Theatre with KoyaShige), and will be a singing programme.

Hey, I made a HD rip of Seven Colors PV and the talk part, /seperately/ and I uploaded it in case anybody needs it. ^^ The talk part`s quality didn`t turn out as nice as the PV though.
Anyway here are the links, they`re 4shared links, but if you guys needs an other site to download from I can try upload them somewhere else, too. ^^ I hope I linked and tagged everything well, if not just tell me. :)
