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 …

I understand what you mean. Honestly I was a kind of shocked when they announced TegoMasu live tour from Oct to Dec. After that ∞ is probably having a winter concert tour. Then YamaP might be bored and decide to have a solo concert tour... endless... I now don't expect much. It sounds strange, but I just wish TegoMasu & KoyaShige joint tour(~_~)

The Duet shoot looks really good though Yamapi is giving me KimuTaku vibes. I kind of miss NEWS I want some kind of epic single from them. :(

Dont let Johnny-san ( or any stupid person who rules JE world ) destroy your love for NEWS. It's hard to wait ...but it's the only thing we can do for them ! That and continuing to send them letter with encouragement !!! ^^

Thanks again for those scans !!!!

I'm really starting to think that 2011 will be the "year of solo activities"
Even though we had no NEWS yet as a group, Thank you for still continuing to scan!

What can I say if not: "I totally agree with you"... T^T
I'm struggling hard to understand WHY is JE doing this with NEWS?? Why do they keep pushing the group aside and apparently trying to promote each member individually?
This is really sad... :'(

But please... don't give up on scanning! If you don't do this, no one will do it a well as you!

Inala chan thank you for the scans!! I appreciate your work!
I know how you feel, about NEWS not even be together, and I too wish NEWS could do something together. It's really hard to support group which don't regularly show up all together or at least once or twice a year. T^T Well, despite this, again, thank you for the scans and your hard work!!

thanks so much for sharing these ♥
*sigh* this is the only way we can see them "together" in one picture.. even though they are photoshopped =)

I feel your pain, this waiting game is so tiresome. And I haven't even been in the fandom long, I can't imagine how disheartening it must be for those that are long time NEWS fans!

In regards to the scans though, Thank you for your amazing work again and again!
Shige is seriously looking HOT recently!! Probably a lot to do with his current role, but I'm loving it regardless!
