Kanjani8 to release yet another single

It was announced that Kanjani8 will be releasing yet another single. The single is entitled Tsubusa ni Koi and will be released on August 17th. The song will be used as the ending theme for Nishikido Ryo’s drama Zenkai Girl. This wil also be Kanjani8’s 4th single this year.

Geez 4 singles and it’s only July. At this rate they could squeeze out another single or 2 before the year ends. However, that would be extreme overkill. Since one of those 4 singles was a double A-side, ot already feels like this will be their 5th single this year. But more power to them I guess. But I guess this means there’s absolutely no hope for NEWS to release a single this year. Unless they pull another Fighting Man and release something in November again.

I’m not really the biggest Kanjani8 fan. I’m trying to get into them more. But as of right now, I’m not super interested in them. But my readers seem to like when I cover Kanjani8, so here we are.

Of course you can order this single from CDJapan by clicking the links below.

Kanjani8’s animated new video

The lovely Sarahxx909 from twitter asked me if I would review Kanjani8’s T.W.L. PV. Which should have been done nearly 2 months ago. But my overall lack of twitter knowledge made me miss her tweet for a month. Apparently you can click and see tweets that you are mentioned in, who knew? Then my computer crashed making this post even more overdue.

I am always super excited when people ask me to write about something in my blog. However, it’s only happened on 2 occasions. And both times I was asked to review a Kanjnai8 PV. And that’s mostly because I hardly ever write about them. I have sort of a love hate relationship with Kanjani8. There are only like 4 singles I like by them, and because of that I never really listened to any more of their music. You’d think because I love Ryo-chan that by default I’d love Kanjani8 more. But that’s just not really the case.They are apparently supposed to have the most personality out of any JE group, but I’ve only seen them on Heyx3 twice. I’m getting way off topic though.

A while ago Kanjani8 released a double A-side as part of them releasing 3 consecutive singles. And I didn’t really bother listening to either song. Mostly because, as I said, I’m not the biggest K8 fan. That and the fact that it was for Shin-chan I figured the song would be pretty awful. T.W.L. as a song is actually better than I expected it to be. The song is actually pretty catchy and fun. Of course the chorus is my absolute favorite part. Mostly because the verse is pretty tame compared to the chorus. I also really love Subaru’s solo at the end. The echo effect is completely amazing. But the only thing I don’t like about the song is, I do not for the life of me know what T.W.L. is actually supposed to mean. I swear it’s Deco motion all over again.

I was expecting Kanjani8 to go all out for this PV. But it’s actually a lot more low key then I expected. Of course,  there is still the over the topness that makes Kanjani8, Kanjani8. But there’s only like a touch of craziness here and there. It’s almost like a perfect balance of low key and over the top. I’m actually kinda dissapointed by that. I’m still waiting for a PV as weird, crazy, and slightly embarassing as It’s My Soul. The T.W.L. PV is mostly just them standing around in painter’s outfits singing, with the occasional weird face in the background. The only time the PV gets laughable and WTF worthy are the scenes where they are with the cartoon screens. And pretty much only Ryuhei actually tried to make stupid faces.

Let the insanity begin.

I really love the scenes with their names. The background is really awesome.

You looks cuter everytime I see him.

Ok, maybe it’s not cool in red.

Mostly because it reminds me of this. XD

Ryo looks great as always.

Lolz at random butt shake.

All these Shin-chans are annoying me.

Lolz. Ryuhei always makes the best faces.

Ryo is love.

There’s just no words for this.

Ryuhei’s face is priceless, but I don’t get why Subaru is trying to look cool.

Incredible. Ryhuei is the only one worth watching in this PV.

It’s like no one else is even trying.

Doragon ga hi wo fuita.

The hearts makes ttis really cute.

This is both hilarious and kinda hot. XD

Can I just laugh at the fact that like at this moment it sounds like they are singing the word blowing. XP

Tacchon’s closeups might be just as weird as Ryuhei’s.

Like I said, no one else is trying nearly as hard as Ryuhei. XD


Oh Ryuhei, never stop making weird faces.


For some reason this made me laugh. I don’t even know why. XD

Ryo shows off his air guitar skills in new CM

Nishikido Ryo is staring in a new solo CM for 7-up Clear Dry. Which was just released a few hours ago.

First off, I am 100% sure that they don’t make this product here in the US. And if they do I have never seen it or heard about it. The bottle even has the label used for 7-up products sold outside the US. But I don’t see why they don’t make it here. According to the bottle it’s a zero calorie 7-up. Coke zero is really popular here, you’d think we’d have 70up Clear Dry too. But now I’m just rambling. XD

About the commercial itself, I like it. It’s really adorable. I always love when Ryo shows his dorky side. And Ryo rocking on air guitar is pretty dorky. And apparently he was really shy while he was filming the commercial. Which just adds to the cute factor of it. And I must say I completely approve of a Ryo solo commercial. Yamapi is usually the one getting all the CMs. It’s about time my beloved Ryo got another one.

Kanjani8’s not so Wonderful World

The PV for Kanjani8’s newish single Wonderful World has been released recently. That’s right Wonderful World can’t be called their new single anymore since they’re releasing yet another new single entitled LIFE ~Me no Mae no Mukou e~ on August 25th. Which is being used as theme to Okura Tadayoshi’s drama. So I guess NEWS just gets totally screwed for a second year in a row. But whatever.

Since one of my lovely readers asked me personally to review this PV I had to. Which I most likely would have done anyway because Kanajani8 PVs are so random. But it wasn’t really a simple task to review this PV.
And let me just say I officially hate Johnny. After JE cried and said they don’t want any of their videos shared on streaming sites, you can’t find them on streaming sites at all! Well you can but in horrible quality. And since I like to have pictures of the PV, I had to download it. I absolutely hate downloading anything, since it takes entirely too long. I wasted 35 minutes on a video I deleted right after watching. But enough ranting and on to the actual PV review.

Tough break. You might want to take it to a legit mechanic though.

I didn’t think it was possible, You actually looks semi attractive.

Of course Ryo is looking as good as ever.

Everyone gather around the Mystery Machine! But seriously, why are they wearing psychedelic
print they use in Scooby Doo merchindise?

And yet this is not attractive at all.

Good to know that Shingo hasn’t fixed his teeth or face yet.

Just when Tadayoshi was looking consistently good throughout the PV he does this. But I gotta say the colorful background scenes are my favorite part.

Now I remember why I don’t follow Kanjani8 that closely.

WTF. Does he really have to keep constantly making supid faces?

Quick everyone pretend like you’ve never seen a girl before.

Of course they had to make her foreign. At least that gives Ryo something to do after the filming wraps up.


If these are your “I want you” faces we’ve got some serious problems.

Cheap effect!

Look how cute Ryo looks here. And how he looks like he’s too cool to be in Kanjani8.

This is probably the gayest part of the PV. ._.

Even Ryo isn’t immune from stupid faces.

Though he makes up for it with this face.

And completely ruins it with this face! But I love the brand new day font. XD

I’m really surprised this is the first stupid face Ryuhei makes.

Adorable! And lol at You in the background.

Good old Ryuhei I knew he had another stupid face in him.

I don’t exactly get who making out with her van will get in into her pants. But what do I know?

Tadayoshi sees you where ever you are. This is much more I’m gonna stalk you then I’m in love with you.


Invisible girlfriend.

Subaru actually looks kinda cute in this PV. I think I need my eyes checked. XD

Anytime Ryo plays guitar it’s hot.

Except here.

Ryo bias.

I can haz kiss now?

Or an overwhelming amount of presents.

Gross, I’d take Shingo over him. Though I don’t know. It would be horrible either way. XD


Aww looks how sad Ryo looks.
