This may have been the year of the unrelenting "storm", but it also was a great year for Kanjani8. The most unlikely members had their chance to shine while others took a step back. One decided to throw on a bikini and roll around in a bed while another was an emotionally unstabled television director caught in the past. While one member baffled us all at how stupid his character was in one of this summer's dramas another reminded us that you can still be a kid at heart despite all the adult politics surrounding a children's show.
This is 2009, a year in review.
Warning: Sarcastic, dry, humor with occasional foul/dirty humor. Don't take it seriously, you'll kill the fun. Also image heavy.
HINA IS A YEAR OLDER YAY. The the guy with the hot bod and goatee is 27. Whooo~!
The once Junior con turned Uchi Hiroki solo con is a success! Yay! Ohkura is killing people and emoing left and right in Hissatsu Shigotonin! Yaaaay! And amongst all the stuff in January, Hina starts his stage play " if.. or " with a bang: Slapping a reporter upside the head after all the questions about him and his hot sexytiems with Misa Misa. He said they're just really good friends so we gotta believe him, right?
Ohkura gets featured in America's shojo manga anthology,Shoujo Beat
Maru is just too adorable playing an Uta no Oniisan in the drama... Uta no Oniisan along side the very I hate everything in life including children Ohno.
and then :
the goggles. they do nothing.
Nothing else really happened this month besides so I'll leave you with Pedo!Yoko:
In this month we learn that on top of Ryo Nishikido's other amazing talents like ORE NO CHINKO SAWATTE, he can't drive. At all. He's so bad he causes a "minor" three car collusion on a freeway in Tokyo which makes an old woman have a "minor" neck injury that lands her in the hospital for one week.
Well, the power of Johnny's brushes off the incident in less than 48 hours and he can't drive for 6 months. L.O.L.
K8 appear on a Narutomo SP advertising puzzles and calendars and tv shows and all sorts of cool and awesome stuff like their underwear!
And also Yoko got rid of that horrific hairstyle that plagued us for three months, but it's still bad:
The calendars come out and everyone is like YAY and stuff but the somewhat biggest news of all is that: YOKO IS STARRING IN A NEW DRAMA
Half of fandom didn't care then but watch by the end of this drama the new legion of fangirls this man would have....
Is it me or is it Last Friends all over again?
Here we go again! Another scandalous role played by one of our boys. And wow does Yoko's popularity shoot through the roof. Also, a new ship is born D: Fans of the first season of the Quiz Show on 2ch start calling it the BL Show.
Puzzle is released and everyone has mixed feelings about it. Either you really love it or you really hate it. Pick a side! Along with the release, there has to be some promo so what's not better then staring in the premiere revival of Campus Night Fuji and make Ryo all flustered?
But this month is also a sad month because our beloved useless Genta... Well...
You want some Puzzle translations?!??? Take your pick!!!!!
And Ryo gets rewarded for being a wife beater.
Remember those days when no one really cared about Yoko other than the fact he was fat and funny? Yeah, I do! But for some reason this year he had more OMG BIRTHDAY posts than Tacchon!
What's going on?!
Everything is pretty much Quiz Show, Quiz Show, Quiz Show but niyaismime wants to let you know why she loves Nishikido Ryo. But then we find out that Subaru is starring in
And wasn't there a play going on?
Oh yeah, unf.
iceuck wants a DVD. No, srsly, she does.
Yoko is jealous of little boys again. Also, Honma popped a fuse:
rheasilvia wants to what K8 calls Ryo and it actually ends up being a lengthy discussion... lol. On the the topic of Ryo, did you know he's starring in two dramas? Yeah, in one he dies and in another one he engages in this epic god like battle. Wow, does that sound cool!
Nothing else happens this month cause K8 is on the road singing about puzzles and stuff. So, here, have some Lake Kamihonma
So, what's not cooler than opening the month with some community rules and stuff!
Nothing else really happens this month besides Orthros no Inu's premiere and everyone is like wtf did I just watch. D:
It's annoouced that Ohkura and Yasu are going to be starring in a
Another fan wants to know what Ryo l ikes in a girl D:
Subaru, Yasu, Maru, and Yoko totally fail at Intro-Don games. Really. They do.
And LOL WHAT. No really, what? On that topic though, Yoko ends up in a guest spot in Koishite Shitdrama praying on little girls and beating up on little boys:
Then Hina is annouced to star as a creepy angry pre-school teacher in My Girl!
WIN SOME CDS. Why didn't I notice this post at the time cause srsly lolwat.
and Ryo died somewhere this month too in that 1 lit of tears reversal
NSKD gets the flu and decides to spread the love across K8.
It's annoucmed that Yoko will play Willy Wonka in a drama about people having pretty shitty lives.
and then HAPPY BIRFDAY GAIZ
Then there's this low budget show called Kanpani that's short and stupid but lulz all at the same time that was annouced! But in return we have to say good bye to the educational program that lost some lulz called Can! Jani :(
Puzzle's released! YAAAAAAY
Nasu dies? Oh, no, not again! What is this, Sailor Moon?
Romes premieres D:
My Girl premieres D:
Room 0 premieres D:
that's pretty much it.
HINA, GOOD FRIENDS AMIRITE OR AMIRITE?
tomo_8_1 needs YOUR HELP!
and here's a moment for Ryo's annual birthday flood wishes
Lol Hina knocked up Erika. KIDDING!
OH WOW THANKS K8 YOU'RE GIVING US SUCH THOUGHTFUL GIFTS THAT WE HAVE TO PAY FOR and some concerts at new year GUESS YOU GUYS WONT BE AT COUNTDOWN.
and Maru gets some birthday love too!
... Well, just one post but we still love him... Right? I do >:(
And for some reason that "Gift" got leaked a month early.what.
Maru was late to the party and caught the flu :(
And the most of this month was Gift promotion and end of year performances -- Its pretty hard to keep up with what K8 is doing in the news when every other thing is about ARASHI. D:<
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2010 -- 2009 may have been Yoko's year to shine, it may have been the year that Hina got more papa press than he's ever had in his entire career, and may have been the year that people did not even watch a Ryo drama but it was an interesting year to say the least. Here's to 2010!
Did I forget anything big? Let's discuss it! Mock it! Have fun!!!!!!!!!
