    thank you very much,
    the news about Massu make me happy,
    please excuse me
    I listened to K chan News, but I do not understand Japanese very well
    K chan went to Yamapi concert ?
    I understand correctly?
    Thanks in advance

      I know! I haven’t seen Massu on TV in ages (>w<)

      I think you're talking about last night's K-chan NEWS?
      Massu and K-chan were talking about having not seen Yamapi's movie "Ashita no Joe" yet.
      Massu had said he was waiting for an invitation to go to one of the movie's events but no one's approached him yet (lol)
      The two of them had talked about whether being a fellow NEWS member meant such things were normal or not.
      K-chan had said you'd think that being in the same group, some of the organisers would leave a few seats reserved for group members, but because the movie's been out for a while now maybe that's not the case for Ashita no Joe.

      Hope that clears up things!

    Even though I’ve heard of Kinpachi sensei series before, I’ve never watched it. But I wanna watch this! So many of my faves are guesting XD On top of it all, there’re Massu and Shige *dances*

    • 09:54 JST March 8, 2011 at 9:54 AM


      Actually…I’ve never watched an entire series either.
      I’ve watched the odd episode when it was on during series 6, 7, and 8 but that’s about it!

      Maybe I should watch the re-runs they’re showing on tv. But in order to do that I need to buy that DVD recorder I’ve been meaning to get for ages now.

      …anyway, thanks for dropping by again!

      Momo xoxo

      Yay, so many people coming back! Even if it’s for a second, or part of a big crowd scene I am so going to watch this special.

      Momo xoxo
