June Myojo and Popolo

Yep, you read correctly... Popolo again!! ^_______^ I'm so excited that Ya-Ya-yah are in the Popolo magazine again. =) This has to mean something.
·
Anyway... we can enjoy scans of both magazines thanks to the wonderful Zansanhane, from LJH.
·
I haven't read the Myojo one thoroughly yet, but the Popolo article, or whatever you may call it, is very cute because they ask the guys questions about love.
·
Some things I found particularly cute:
Yabu is in a hurry to find a steady girlfriend, it seems, because he wants to get married by the age of 23!! XD A bit young, don't you think? Shoon, on the other hand, wants to take things more calmly and doesn't have any plans to marry before he reaches his 30s. Taiyô is in the middle, he'd like to marry at 25. And both Yabu and Shoon want to have kids. ^^B
·
Hikaru wants his girlfriend to call him Hikka, and when he likes a girl he confides in Shoon and Yabu. Also, when asked if he'd want to see his girlfriend everyday, Yabu says that 3 times a week would be enough -eeeh? Not very romantic, are you? XD- but says that if she wanted them to meet everyday he'd comply. Hmm... ¬¬
·
And Shoon's answers are the best. ^^BBB The first "love" he had was in 2nd year of elementary school. One day he got a note from her that said "let's walk back home together after school!". Kawaii! The first thing he notices in a girl... can you guess? Her hair!! XDDDD He likes girls with short, brown, and slightly wavy hair.
·
Remember the "Shinpuru is besuto? ... Sutoreeto ni "suki da yo"" ["Simple is best. ... I'd be straight forward and say "I like you""] from that 2003 show? ^__^ It seems he still thinks it's better not beating about the bush when it comes to admitting your feelings. ;-) Go Shoon!
·
And for a date he'd take his girl to the beach on a Summer night... to watch the fireworks if I understood correctly. So romantic! ^.^*
·
But the most romantic answer is the one he gives to one of the last questions, in which he says that when he really likes a girl, she's always more important to him than anything else and he'll do anything for her. *squeee!*
·
Some previews of the pics from Myojo, which shows the guys in their bedrooms (yay! XD)
·
Taiyô seems to have a thing for kuma (bears). XD He mentioned Winnie the Pooh, I think it was, in an old interview Yui translated from 2003, he mentions in the Myojo issue that his dog's name is Kuma, and he has some teddy bears in his room! X333 Also? He would be perfect for a chocolate commercial. Look at that expression! XD
·
·
Hikaru with tousled hair is the most adorable thing ever, and he seems to collect toy cars, just like my younger brother. He looks a little melancholic in that pic for some reason, but it's cute.
·
·
And Yabu... I understand you can look sexy lying down on the floor, surrounded by... CDs? (cards? ?__?), but how can you look so sexy reading?! XD
·
·
And finally Shoon... Shoon's bedroom is all I'd imagined it would be like and more. ^^B He has a Woodstock poster, a wide window that makes the room luminous and plants (just like in BnS ^o^)...
·
·
Also, he has a surf board there, which reminds me of the fact that he surfs - it's just silly, but I find it so damn sexy that he surfs. XD;;; He also has 3 different types of guitars no less! O_O Those round things the red arrow points to are supposed to be the guitars cases, and there's an electric guitar, an accoustic guitar, and a bass guitar. Oh, and he's wearing a Led Zeppelin t-shirt! Wonder if it's his. ^^
·
·
And to finish this entry, what better than the best pic in the Popolo issue? XD Yup, Shoon's pic.
·
·
All the pics this way:

07.04.14 livestage

I swear I'll answer your comments on the next entry. ^^ However, I didn't want to make you wait to watch last weekend's great live stage. =) Taiyô is more and more impressive and more and more confident, Massu is confused - can't distinguish a baseball bat from the microphone LOL - and crazy fangirls pat Shoon like maniacs. XD No Shige nor Tegoshi this time.

You can watch the full livestage and download the video and its mp3 rip at Mitsukai's site, Singin' for You. =] Enjoy!

Hawaii

EDIT: By mistake I posted a couple of scans in the 2005.10 Wink Up that actually belong to the 2005.10 issue of Duet, which also has a report of the Hawaii trip. Scroll down to the end of the entry to find the link for that folder (set) on the album.
·
Yeah, of late my post are always a mixture of this and that because I have many things I want to share with you all, but very little time to write proper blog posts, with opinions and such, but those will come too, as soon as I manage to put some order in my chaos. XD;;;
·
Anyway, remember Ya-Ya-yah performed Start on last weekend's SC? Well, a couple of weeks ago I came across a HQ version of the livestage from the 2005.09.11 show, the Hawaii special. There's a HQ version of that show at the Ya3 TV shows Guide, but the livestage is missing.
·
I felt really happy when I found this HQ livestage because when I watched it I found a cute little bit of Yamabu I hadn't noticed on the LQ version! XD Yeah, I know, I'm obsessed. ^^;; It's just like a milisecond, though, so you'll need to pay atention and look closely. ;-p
·
Okay, okay, I'll give you some pointers:
·
The first pic below is a pic of Yabucchi, from the 2005.10 issue of Wink Up, holding an ukelele. Shoon and Yabu could perfom a duet on the show one day, Shoon playing the bass (he's taking lessons) and Yabu the ukelele. XD Notice the white and blue rubber bracelets he's wearing. The second one is a screencap from the livestage of 2005.09.11, in which you can see him wearing those same bracelets. Finally notice Yabu's swimming trunks on the third one.
·
·
Okey-dokey, and these are couple of screencaps of the Yamabu moment. Yabu's bracelets are a bit hard to see, but the swimming trunks are the same. You can't see Shoon here because Hikaru is in front [LOL at Hikaru's dorkiness X3], but he's standing in the background, right behind Yabu.
·
·
And guess what: he's in a playful mood, splashing Yabu's back with sea water. ^^BBB *squee* [how fangirly can I get? XDDD]
·
·
I've edited the clip cutting it and making it slow motion so you can see it for yourselves. ;-) Note: this video has no audio.
·
·
If you want to watch the whole performance and download the HQ clip and an mp3 rip of it, you'll find both at Mitsukai's site Singin' For You. =) Click on the screencaps below to see the real size and quality of the clip.

On to other things, I've uploaded to the album more of the scans Yuantim sent to me (thanks so so so much once again ^^BBB), which incidentally are from the 2005.11 issue of Myojo - which means it has pics of Ya-Ya-yah's and JJExpress' trip to Hawaii. ;-) And I've also uploaded scans from the 2005.10 issue of Wink Up, which has more pics from that same trip. Credit for those goes to Tyta, an LJH member. I posted some of these a long time ago, but there were some missing, and perhaps some of you weren't following my blog at that time.

07.04.08 LS and more

Several things today. =) Firstly, last weekend's live stage (2007.04.08), which I've uploaded and posted at Mitsukai's site, Singin' For You together with a Daily Motion clip for you to watch and an mp3 rip. So please go there, and also take a look around and leave a comment for Mitsukai if you can. She's doing such a great work there. ^__^
·
On to other things, last weekend’s Shônen Club was pretty good. Ya-Ya-yah performed Start, a song I never thought we’d see them performing again, because it is very different from the ones they’ve been singing recently (like Itoshi no Playgirl or Te wo tsunaide Yukô). But then they performed Yuuki 100% last year on SC, so I guess it’s not so strange after all. ^^
·
It’s not my favourite song, but it was through a performance of Start that I got to know Ya-Ya-yah, so it brings good memories, and it was very cute seeing them performing it now that they are older. Also, it gives me hope that this might be another sign of a coming debut. Why else would they be performing all of their old songs slightly revamped? Don’t lose your faith! ;-)
·
Hikaru and Yabu also sang part of a medley at the beginning, Yabu sang his solo Asu e, and all of Ya-Ya-yah sang a new song with the other juniors at the closing of the show, a song called Vanilla – Burn it up. Um, yeah, absurd title... another of those silly puns JE song writers seem to be fond of, because Vanilla in Japanese is pronounced [bah-nee-rah], which sounds similar to “burn it up”. XD
·
If you want to watch these performances, or download them and their mp3 rips, come this way. =]
·
It was a good show as well because there were two new segments, Junior League, in which the juniors are divided into teams and play games against each other. It was really funny. Yabu is surprisingly good in rope jumping, Hikaru is bad in Maths, just like me ^^ , and Shoon is such an adorable scaredy cat! ^^B
·
video and screencaps of Shoon
·
I’m not sure if it will be like a real league: I mean I suppose that the team who won will be in the next show playing against another team and so on? ^^ We’ll have to wait and see. That would be interesting, ne?
·
·
And then there was this other new segment with Yabu and Hikaru disguised as... goats! XDDD Hikaru looked really funny, and Yabu was sooo cute! I wanted to reach out and squeeze his plushy white ears. ^.^ I think it would have been even better though if they had disguised Yabu as Heidi, Shoon as Clara, Taiyô as Heidi’s grandfather, Hikaru as Peter, and the Morimoto brothers as goats. XD You can download these two clips at the videos section if you want. =]
·
·
And last but not least, I’ve reuploaded one of the HQ onigokko episodes, which is worth downloading because the quality is very nice (click on the thumbnails below to see the real screensize and quality). You can download it at the videos section too.

yesterday's SC performances

I still have to cut and upload some very funny sections from yesterday's SC, but in the meantime you can watch and download yesterday's Ya3 performances at my new site, which is now officially open. *throws confetti* You can also download mp3 rips of those performances there. =]

YamaBu & YaoKawa

I've modified the navigation bar a little. I wanted to have a little list of the most useful links for Ya3 fans and especially for people who are new in the fandom. =] I'd like to point your attention to a new site called Singin' for You owned by Mitsukai. ^__^
·
She posted about it at the Ya3 LJ comm, and I think it's a great idea. In her own words, her aim is to "gather every (Ya-Ya-yah) livestage performed since 2003 in one place for anyone to download". It's a big task, though, so she's asking for contributors. =) I've already offered to help, and I'm working on a similar kind of site for SC performances called Never Stop the Music (still under construction), so probably I'll take down the download links from the videos section and direct you to Mitsukai's site or to that new site of mine I've just mentioned when I upload a livestage or an SC performance. =] It will be much neater, ne?
·
On another note, Zansanhane has posted scans of the May issues of Duet, Potato, and Wink Up at LJH. ^___^ It's a pity she's watermarking them now, but I always feel very thankful to the people who scan mags to share them with the rest of us. =] Also, the girls at Hadaka no Johnny's, Ina, Meloenchen, and Ricci, will probably post these same scans later without a watermark. I truly adore them. ^^BBB
·
Anyway, May issues are so much love! ^.^* Is it me or has JE finally realized that Shoon belongs with Yabu and Hikaru with Taiyô? ;-) All the May issues (Popolo included) with the exception of Myojo, which had solo pics of each member, have paired them up this way. I'm so stupidly happy. XD
·
These are from Duet. I'm still wondering what on earth Shoon and Yabu are doing with those chess pieces. ?__?
·
·
These two are from Wink Up. So pretty! ^___^ I wish Yabu had his fringe though.
·
·
And these are the best. ^^BBB They are from Potato. Shoon looks like a young professor with the tie and wool jacket, the light on the pic is great, and... really, this doesn't need words. ^^

·
Okay, and now on with your comments as I promised. ^__^
·
Alice (aka Kiera), left a comment with a link to a Yamabu fic she's written. It's very sweet, and it reminds me a little of a fic Kichi wrote not long ago, as the idea is similar. =) I'll go and leave a comment as soon as I can, Alice! Thanks for the link. ^^BBB
·
Mai-chan and Sue comment on how anxious they are to know who is debuting. Aren't we all? God, so am I. T__T The wait is killing me. And yet, the fact that JE has been promoting the new timeslot for the Ya-Ya-yah show on 4 huge television screens no less at Shibuya, one for each member, gives me hope. ;-) Isn't it a bit too much just for a change in the timeslot? ^^
·
Mina tells me how much she loves watching Ya-Ya-yah in HQ. So do I. Everytime I find an HQ Ya3 file on a clubbox I feel as if I'd found a treasure. Some of my HQ files are actually very precious to me because it took me days -literally- to download them. They had been uploaded ages ago, and with clubbox when a file hasn't been downloaded for a long time, it's very difficult to download them, because the download rate is very low.
·
Alei finds it strange that the Taiwanese edition of Wink Up used (it's no longer in print), different pics from the ones in the Japanese edition. Yeah, I wonder about that too, but oh, well, more pics for us to collect, ne? ;-) And Mitsukai comments on how many scans she must have missed thinking they were the same ones. ... Well, ever since I found out there was a Taiwanese edition, everytime I come across pics which are not tagged (ie. Wink Up, Potato, etc), I save them even though I think I might already have them, just in case! XD Hairband says she likes the Taiwanese edition pics... so do I! =D They're in general much cuter, aren't they?
·
Yui left a comment telling me that the May issue of Myojo included an extra booklet in which fangirls ask questions to several johnny's, and someone asked Shoon about his nickname 'Mayo'. I had been wondering forever about that too! He replied that he himself doesn't know the reason, just that, one day in 6th grade of Primary School, his friends started calling him Mayo. Mystery solved! =] Thanks so much, Yui-chan!! ^^BBB Now I want to know why exactly they call him Corn-kun too. ;-)
·
Yuki tells me how much she loves Shoon's hairstyles, that she's been thinking of trying one on herself, and asks me if I'd ever tried one myself. Um, no, I haven't. ^^ I don't think it would suit me, but I too love Shoon's hairstyles. He has such beautiful hair, doesn't he?
·
She also comments on the Tokyo Friend Park show in which Shoon and the rest of the Satomi Hakkenden cast appeared. I'm so glad you liked it. ^___^ Yeah, Shoon was unbelievably cute there, even for himself! =] If somebody doesn't like Shoon after watching TFP then there's something wrong with them. XD
·
Ved wants to know where can she download the full 2007.01.14 SC. Have you tried Himitsu? Or if you can use clubbox perhaps I can find one that has it. If you can't find it anywhere I'll upload it for you, though it will take some time. ^^
·
An anonymous reader comments on how she misses Kusano. I'm really curious to know what exactly he is doing and if we'll see more of him in the new Ya3 show now that he's back in JE.
·
And another anonymous reader wants to know how to download from Mofile. Well, first I'll tell you that the download speed seems to be horribly slow for Western Internet users, but if you want to give it a try, you'll need to get yourself an account at http://www.mofile.com/en/, and then enter the pick-up code provided by the person who uploaded the file you want. Files expire, so you need to hurry and download before it does.
·
Thanks also to K-chan, Kins, Geri, keifuXueda, Rin, Gladys, Theo-chan, Chookie, FatalBlue, and Glix, for your comments. ^___^
·
P.D. para Sue: He visto por uno de tus comentarios que hablas español; ¿de dónde eres? =]
