October magazines - Duet, Potato, WinkUp

Another month's pages from Duet, Potato and WinkUp.

Still no NEWS from a company that is falling over itself for other groups.

It would be nice to think that 2012 will be a better year, but there's no evidence of that. Not when there hasn't even been a group single for a year but J&A are pouring money and promotion into cds and concerts for select members and ignoring NEWS and their fans completely.

Who would have thought that the definition of a group was simply finding photos next to each other on a magazine page. I'd always figured that some kind of physical interaction in real time where the members actually saw each other was required.

taking all your lovely scans.

i totally agree with everything you said.
this year was a really bad year for NEWS fans. i totally don't understand J&A these days. everything sucks right now. before it was just how they were promoted and stuff but these past years, how NEWS was managed is freakingly bs i won't even enumerate how.

i'm happy for TM though but that's not what we really want isn't it? i kinda thought they'll do a tour this winter early this year but after TM & KJ8 sched was release it went into puff. at the rate they are going, it felt like they've been together for 15+ years and i missed more than half of it. the groups who are releasing at a rate of 1/yr are only the sempai groups but they have TV shows to make up for it.

sorry for ranting again but i'm not happy with J&A right now. i hope NEWS fans will continue being proactive and do all those fan projects even if it's tiring since that's all we can do right now.

And that's one of the other difficult things - not all NEWS fans are equal. We aren't even a fandom united because J&A are choosing to support various members and not others. To me TM activity is just a pointy stick to prove that it's only NEWS as a group that has been abandoned - and that's all I want.

My theory on this whole mess goes back to 2006. But I don't know why 2009 was the turning point - everything looked so good after WPD.

I try to make myself believe that there is a bigger reason for all this silence from NEWS. Maybe because there is a lot of promotion over Kis-My-Ft2's debut so JE decided to "sacrifice" NEWS... once again. u_u'
Tegomass is releasing a new album these year and I'm really happy for them but, in the end, it feels like trying to fill some gap... T^T

Anyways, thank you so much for the gorgeous scans! At least we can look at their handsome faces! ^^

Promoting Kisumai has nothing to do with whether NEWS members can be in a room at the same time for a magazine photoshoot. And there's time and effort for TM, just not NEWS. Mostly though, why don't they just give us an announcement. If they're not going to do anything, tell us - plenty of musical groups announce that they'll be working on solo projects for 6 or 12 months.

Just tell us we've got nothing to look forward too and we can stop feeling kicked in the head at every turn. But unfortunately I think the real issues come from inside the group and the company are a party to them. Because how busy can it be if some groups are releasing 4 or 5 singles in a year, but NEWS doesn't even get one ...

And based on the evidence since 2009 - and TM having a tour every year - they aren't filling a gap. They're the main event now.

Tegoshi said it himself a year or more ago - NEWS is the place he's from, not where he lives.
