Sanity Post - aka A Word From Our Sponsor

Welcome / Welcome Back

There are a few things I feel I need to say regarding the scans that I share on this journal.

Up until now all my posts have been public and open with no restrictions or rules.

However ...Collapse )

Magazines - QLAP! and Songs July

Sharing the July issues of QLAP! and Songs.

Both of these are for promotions for the Chumu Chumu single, though it is a change to see only 2 members in Songs rather than the whole group.

Songs, as always, features a piano score sheet music, this time it's for MR WHITE.

A Collection of Shige Magazine Appearances

Sharing a collection of magazines featuring Shige as part of the promotion for the release of his short story collection.

Magazines in this post - AneCan, FREECELL, Nylon Japan and Only Star.

Along with many news reports, particularly about his visit to a girls school, Shige has had excellent coverage for his book release that still has a number of magazines yet to be released.

Magazines - July 2015 [2]

Sharing the lates issues of Duet, Potato and WinkUp as well as Bananavi TV magazine.

NEWS is on the cover of Potato this month, which is always good to see. And Duet and Potato also both have large NEWS posters as part of the promotion for the new single release on June 24.

Bananavi had a preview of NEWS on あっどうも はじめまして旅 / A Domo Hajimemashite Tabi / Nice to Meet You Trip.

Sharing another collection of photos from the May 1 concert in Osaka on Koyama's birthday.

These are Koyama and Shige focused sets and contain more shots from the birthday cake MC.

And there just can never be too many photos of Koyama's solo.

Magazines - July 2015 [1] + Shige

Sharing the latest issues of Myojo and Popolo for July.

This month the long and revealing interview is with Shige, and a translation can be found here.

Also included are the first of many magazines featuring Shige on the release of his compilation of short stories. Sharing here QLAP! and VoCE.

Sharing a selection of live concert photos from the concert of May 1, which of course was Koyama's birthday.

The design on the top of the cake was a photo of Koyama dressed in his role as a newscaster. There were many photos actually taken on stage which will probably appear in magazines yet to be published, as coverage of the tour seems to be waiting till after the Tokyo Dome concerts.

In these photos though you can see the frosting from the birthday cake where Tegoshi smeared it on Koyama's face.Then Koyama got Shige and Tegoshi before Massu ran away and managed to avoid it. There are also a couple of photos of Koyama holding the boxed gift of the video prepared by the members and played during the MC.

Magazine Catch Up 3

This is the third of the magazine catch up posts of various magazines from the end of last year up to the present.

This post features a collection of TV Pia and Lettuce Club magazines.

Also rather than breaking them down into individual issues, I've just put them into a zip for each magazine.

Magazines - June 2015 (2)

Sharing the latest issues of Duet, Potato and WinkUp.

The highlight this month of course, is the fact that Potato has a solo poster of Koyama - a very nice surprise.

The WinkUp photoshoot, however, leaves a lot to be desired for a professional magazine. It looks like someone was overly busy in trying to distract readers from the actual photos of the NEWS members. Here's hoping they do better next month.

Magazine Catch Up 2

This is the second round of magazine catch up scans featuring magazines from the end of last year to April this year.

This batch contains TV fan, TV navi, TV Life, TV Life Premium, TV Guide Plus and TV station digital.

There will probably be one more batch featuring TV Pia and Lettuce Club.

This is the second batch of live concert photos for Koyama and Shige.

This batch is also from the first weekend of the tour in Nagoya.

Its great to see that the number of photos of Koyama has increased along with his growing profile and interest by the general public, thanks in part to news every. Unfortunately you can see from the number of photos in this post that it isn't quite the same for Shige - yet.

Magazine Catch Up 1

This is the first of a few posts to catch up on various TV magazines from the start of the year.

Sharing here various issues of Weekly the Television, TV Guide, Monthly TV Guide.

previews & downloads =>Collapse )


This is the first of what will be a series of posts of live concert photos of Koyama and Shige (and other NEWS members) from the 2015 White concert tour.

These photos are from the first weekend of the tour in Nagoya.

The next set will also be from Nagoya, followed by photos from Koyama's birthday concert in Osaka.

I have a lot of scanning to catch up on, including many tv magazines from the first half of this year.

And before I start on photos from the current White tour, I'm sharing this small selection of photos of Koyama and Shige from Best Artist and Johnny's Countdown from last year.

previews & downloads =>Collapse )


Catching up on these magazines as I've been away for a week or so. So these are the latest issues of Myojo and Popolo as well as Koyama's appearance in Tokyo Calendar.

Quite a few double spread pages in this selection, and again Shige and Tegoshi were together for their photoshoots and Koyama and Massu were solo.

Myojo also features another long interview with Koyama. This is a very revealing and emotive interview and a translation can be found here.

Magazines - May 2015 - Batch 2

Sharing the May issues of Duet, Potato and WinkUp which feature a cover and 2 posters.

I'm a little behind due to the fact that for some reason Potato was a little harder to source than usual.

WinkUp probably has the best coverage in this group. NEWS is on the cover and has a proper group poster. It seems that WinkUp managed to get NEWS together for the cover and poster shoot. But for the inside shoot, as with the other mags, it's clear that Shige and Tegoshi had their shoots together while Koyama and Massu were separate.

This would also explain why the Duet poster is another of those 4 panel solo shot combinations - which explains why you may have seen the individual shots in other places, though not necessarily in their poster format. I have also included the posters in 2 sizes in the zip files.

Magazines - May 2015

Sharing the recent issues of the following magazines-

NEWS in Myojo, Popolo and mina and Koyama in 2nd.

These scans are a little behind thanks to all the excellent goodies from the White concert tour. It's certainly great to have so much NEWS happening so far in 2015.

previews & downloads =>Collapse )

White Tour - NEWS Calendar

More scans of goodies from the NEWS tour.

This time the NEWS calendar - which runs from April 2015 to March 2016.

The calendar has the days on the left, and the months on the right and you flip and match them as the weeks go by. And you'll notice that the days of the month that relate to the members birthdays, have them as the focus in front of the group.

White Tour Photo Sets and Clearfiles

Sharing another round of goodies from the NEWS White tour.

These are the photo sets and clearfiles. And it wasn't until I got the photos and opened them that I realised we now got 5 photos in a set rather than the 4 we got in the past. These seems mainly due to price rise for photos from 150 yen to 160 yen. So photosets used to be 600 yen (4x150) and now they are 800 yen (5x160).

As usual though, these are a nice set of photos. And the clearfiles, although only in black and white are also particularly attractive.

White - Album and Tour Shop Photos

Sharing the full set of shop photos released for the start of the 2015 Live White Tour.

There were 2 sets released on the same day. Photos for the White album and for the tour pamphlet and goods.

White album photos = 34 (6 group plus 4 x solo shots)  /  White tour photos = 103 (31 group plus 18 x 4 solo shots)

There are zips for each group within the set and for the whole of each set.
