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 totally understand how you feel. waiting is tiring and i do not blame those who left the fandom. maybe i'm M but i'll wait for that miracle of NEWS coming together.

i've always felt that NEWS has always been neglected by management. what have they done to deserve it? is it because of the scandals of the past? it will never be forgotten but it doesn't mean it should always be slapped in everyone's face. i don't think the members are opposed to getting together for work and it shows when they are working as a group.

sometimes, i felt like the group was created just to launch Yamapi's career, promote KJ8 and to be a starting block for TM. don't get me wrong, i support the members individually but how hard is it for management to remember that fans do have expectations for the 6 of them as a team. the group is losing fans because there's no work as a group. i'm happy that TM is touring again but that fact is dimmed with the knowledge that NEWS doesn't have activities this year.
i might be wishing on air but i would love to have NEWS sing a collection of Christmas songs and Ryo with NEWS during countdown... but knowing JE... enough said.

sorry for the long post. i do hope you continue scanning their pages since like most fans, it's the only opportunity for me to see them together. thank you so much for your effort and kindness in sharing these lovely scans.

it is a little sad for all the NewS fans, but all we could do is to keep on waiting, supporting, and hoping for the best that NewS will eventually have something in the near future..i'm thinking of something big, but we don't know what's on Johnny's brain, maybe he has selective memory loss for NewS, hope not, that is so sad~ =P

anyways, thank you so much for your lovely scans~!♥ü
