Kis-My-Ft2 debut to be delayed, debut single also changed

Popular Johnny’s group Kis-My-Ft2’s commercial debut will be delayed until this summer, it was revealed on May 9, reports Daily Sports Online and NEWS24.

It has been reported the main reason was because of the Tohoku earthquake, which had prompted their debut to be delayed.  On top of this, Johnny’s & Associates president Johnny Kitagawa had asked the group’s debut single to be changed into a more positive and uplifting song to suit Japan’s current situation.

Group members Hiromitsu Kitayama and Taisuke Fujigaya made the announcement to their fans during their stage show “みんなクリエに来てクリエ! 2011 (Minna Crea ni Kite-crea! 2011)” in Tokyo.

Although their debut has been delayed, the two have promised that it will only unleash a larger amount of power.

“If we’re going to to do it, we want it to be the best.  Fujigaya and I were saying that we wanted to become champions,” said Kitayama while Fujigaya nodded in agreement.

A representative from the group’s record company Avex has said Kis-My-Ft2 are currently recording the song, which is about 90 per cent finished.  They had also added the song has been written in a way to cheer people up and make them courageous.

As well as this, the group will go on a national tour this summer.  It has been reported group member Yuta Tamamori came on stage as a guest holding a letter from Mr Kitagawa.  In the same way the group found out about their debut, the three members opened the envelope to find a letter saying they would be embarking on a 6-city tour starting on July 9.

“We seem to find out about things at the same time as you guys (fans) eh,” Fujigaya said.

A debut event is also scheduled to take place closer to the time.



During yesterday’s show, the Kitayama, Fujigaya, and Tamamori celebrated actress Mitsuko Mori’s 91st birthday.  Mori has been a long-time supporter and friend of Johnny’s talents and had worked with Kitayama and Fujigaya on stage in the past.  Although the actress did not make a personal appearance yesterday, Hey! Say! JUMP’s Ryosuke Yamada joined the three on stage as it was also his birthday and everyone sang Happy Birthday around a birthday cake.

After the show, Kitayama talked to the press about his dreams.

“The ultimate would be to 一世風靡 (Isse Fuubi, become popular and widely known across a generation).  Sorry Yamada,” he said as he patted Yamada’s shoulder.

“We’ll (Hey! Say! JUMP) work hard too.  As good rivals of course,” Yamada said.
