Soredemo, Ikite Yuku Episode 2

What’s interesting about this show is that it’s called Even So, we will live on, but no one’s really lived on. They’ve tried, sure, but they haven’t really dealt with the problem, which is why it’s popped up again 15 years later. They can’t go on living, at least not this way.

NEWS loses members…again



          It’s a sad day for NEWS fans. Today, it was announced by Johnny’s Associates that Yamapi and Nishikido Ryo of NEWS have decided to leave the group. Yamapi wants to pursue solo activites and Ryo, also a member of Kanjani8, has found the burden of being in two groups too hectic and has decided to only continue activities with Kanjani8.

So, I’m more than happy to see that Shota and Wakaba’s relationship keeps moving forward because of the sub-plot used in this episode, rather than in spite of it.
