SC 2007.01.07

I've updated the videos section with clips from last Sunday's SC. I also replied all the comments from the last entries on the previous entry in case you haven't seen it. ^^

click to view full sizeLast Sunday's SC was quite nice. =] Little by little we're getting to see more of Reon -both at Junior ni Q segment, and also briefly during the Shokura Mania segment (pic on the left - click to see it full size), which made me stupidly happy. LOL
·
Ever since I learned that Shoon had a younger brother I wondered what he would look like, what he would be like, personality-wise, and wished that one day we'd at least see a photo of the two of them together, like that old pic we've all seen of Taiyô with his sister Tsuki (see pic below on the right). [For those who don't know it, Taiyô's name means "sun" and Tsuki means "moon"]
·
I even gave Reon a small role in my Ya-Ya-yah multi-chaptered fic Bokura no Secret. =] While I gave Yabu's younger sister an invented name, for some reason I was reluctant to do the same with Reon. At first I just referred to him as Shoon's brother, and I gave him a rather vague personality as well. It was providence, you might think, because before I finished the fic the news that Reon was going to join JE were flying all around the Net.
·
And he's so different in every way from what I thought he would be! Not only did he turn out to have an unusual name (most likely it's a japanization of Leon, as Shoon is of Sean) and an uncanny resemblance to his brother; he also has the deepest voice ever heard in a 14 year old, and is as tall as Shoon, who is 4 years older than him.
·
Shoon was adorable and somewhat shy when he was 14 -and still is ^_^-, but there was a pixie-like smugness in his smile sometimes that Reon lacks. This time he appeared on his own at first, without Shoon, when he was called to the message board during the Junior ni Q segment. He looked so nervous, and awkward and vulnerable (those long arms hanging at his sides, his shoulders a little slumped) it made me want to hug him.
·
Taiyô used to be like a child in a body too tall for his age -used to, yes ^^ ...he's matured a lot in the last months. With Reon it's a bit of the same, though not because of innocence, as it was Taiyô's case, but because he seems so self-conscious! Probably there's also the weight of being Shoon's brother and knowing everybody is comparing them. Reon, ganbatte! You're doing well. =)
·
So anyway... he appeared on the Junior ni Q, as I was saying, and Shoon appeared there too. Aren't they the prettiest brothers you've ever seen? (click to see the full size pic)

Shoon, evil thing, stared at the camera for quite a long while with that soft gaze in his eyes, and I swear it made me squirm inside like a school girl. If he has that effect through the screen I don't even want to imagine what that same gaze can do up and close.
·
·
Other things I liked about this SC were the performances. Ya-Ya-yah performed this song called "Hey! Wa", which the four of them seemed to enjoy a lot, especially Yabu. I loved that improvised, happy little jig he did before they started singing, and in general during the whole show he really shined. What's more, I think his dancing has improved. His moves are not so sharp anymore, and he dances like he's having fun and not so much concentrating on the steps. ^___^
·
·
Then we also had a little chat between Koyama, Nakamaru, Yabu, and Hikaru about the SC theme: "Gomen nasai" (please, forgive me). Hikaru made one of these funny faces he makes now and then. He really has so many of them! LOL Bet you there will icons of this screencap around soon (see below on the left & click to see it full size). XD And after that Yabu performed Arashi no Carnival, looking once again like he was having loads of fun (see below on the right & click on it to see it full size) and looking very sexy ^^B , Hikaru performed Gentles -I love that song and love the way Hikaru sings it-, and then all Ya-Ya-yah performed Itoshii no Playgirl together.

The chat with Koyama...

The performance of Arashi no Carnival, Gentles, and Itoshii no Playgirl...

And finally we had a performance with all the juniors of Hikaru's old solo Atarashii Yoake. Too random caps from that performance: Hikaru hardly repressing a smile when he looks at Morimoto (see below on the left & click to see it full size), and a new Yabu-Yûto moment. (see below on the right & click to see it full size) Aren't they cute together? I love Yabu's childish side.
·
·
And the performance itself, of course. Enjoy. ^___^

zOMG! YES YES YES! I KNOW!! that soft gaze he gave, i was practically screaming so loud in the middle of the night 2am that my mum came knocking on my door. XD I was trying to hold control of not screaming when reon appeared. Then when shoon came out too... i lost it. XD LOL!

and you know, shoon's smugness, it made me wanna smack him sometimes! it's just too adorable~ But i think he smugs more when he's with reon! XD And then reon would appear to be so quiet in front of the camera with his brother. The way shoon apologise to reon is so cute... they are just so cute together. And my friend says, they look like a couple. XD Reon's very pretty<3 and shoon looks more masculine beside reon.

And the starting of itoshi no PLAYGIRL... i was also squealing so much when shoon came out in the dim lightings. Cause shoon is too much, he look so gorgeous<3 And did you notice that he did that lip thingy again when hikaru sang that kuchibiru? XD I DIED THERE! and i had to repeat the peformance 4 times, once focusing on each member, to really enjoy it. LOL! XD obssesed. T^T
