Back with the recent magazines … Duet, Potato, WinkUp and Look at Star for September. Look at Star gives us probably the final pages on Shige's play.

However, it does seem like it's going to take a bit of a miracle to save 2011 from being "the year without NEWS." And I have to admit that the almost constant disappointment is leaving me feeling very worn down and pretty fed up.

I understand more than ever the feelings of many friends who have left NEWS fandom because it was too hard to stay.  And there's no guarantee that if we do make it to the end of 2011 that 2012 is going to be any better. No work and no support is not the way to promote any group.

It seems there is basically no interest from within Johnnys for the NEWS that we love and miss - and there hasn't been for some time. In magazines they are always presented as (2+2)+1+1 - the idea of 6 together seems to be a totally alien one.

I found it demonstrated very clearly in Duet this month when they had a few pics to celebrate Massu and Shige having birthdays in July. They Photoshopped Koyama and Tegoshi into the photos to wish them Happy Birthday but that was all. As it has been for a long, long time now.

Anyway, I have thought long and hard about it, and for now, I'm still scanning …

no matter what, i'm still waiting for them, lol
S'eeing them individually is better than nothing (thats what i thought). But seriously..no group activity?? WTH? testing us?

Thank you so much for sharing!
I get what you mean, they're what pulled me into Johnny's fandom in the first place and seeing them being ignored is just a pain...
I really hoped for some activity in autumn, after all Pi is free right now, so were Tegoshi and Massu, Shige will end his stage play and dorama soon, Koyama has his usual business and...isn't it about time Ryo stops always being with Kanjani??
And in the end I cannot even be totally happy for Tegomass tour, because even though I love them (they're my favourites!) nothing beats the 6 of them together!
Let's just hope in a big comeback in 2012 ç_ç
And please, don't stop scanning...these pictures, however not of them together, are all I'm waiting for each month!

Thanks for your devotion and dedication to keep scanning these magazines every month. I can understand how it feels to keep getting disappointed as time goes on when the situation doesn't seen to change. But I wanted to drop a note of thanks...I do appreciate your tenacity.

They're going to reach 10th anniversary for their debut but JE is wasting it =_=; I don't understand how hard to get them together for one day
