JackJack ~ Shinjuku Jack!  
Yesterday, I went to see the Jack Jack event in Space 107 in Shinjuku. JackJack is a 4-member unit, including Aoki Kenji, Shinoda Mitsuyoshi, Nemoto Masakazu, and Katou Ryousuke (3 of which you may know from Tenimyu ^^). Actually, rather than the boys (sorry), I went to support my friend Matsuoka Hideaki, who was last night's guest star (and a rather good one!) ☆

It was a really fun show. I wasn't sure what to expect, and I really wasn't prepared for what happened.. but I did have a lot of fun. I wouldn't mind repeating the night, really, now that I've been through it once already. XP They did a parody of Waratte ii tomo (a popular daytime variety show).  Of course the JACKJACK version is called Waratte ii kamo.  Shinoda played AD, while Nemota played the host Gemori (a play on the host Tamori) while Ryousuke and Kenji played the Seinentai (a play on the 2 cute half-Japanese guys who are regulars on the show). (<---I stole the description from A-chan because I wasn't familiar at all with the show they were parodying...)

At first, there were introductions and the like, including a video, and then a guest talk corner. Basically, Gemori-san interviewed Hideaki, who was being really silly and shameless (and wearing an, um... purple.. velvet.. suit.). He gave them all sorts of presents, and talked a lot about his last musical Mori wa Ikiteiru, in which he co-starred with Shinoda and Aoki (and Katou, who wasn't actually in the show, but Hideaki made up a role for him and pretended like he was in it. Apparently he was the 13th month, but every time he came up to sing they turned off his mike, so that's why we don't remember him). After the talking, the guests had a drawing contest. First, they were each given 2 minutes to draw Donald Duck from memory.. I felt so bad for Hideaki, since he came in last!!! Of course, considering that he drew a JAL plane (Japan airlines) instead of Donald Duck (though okay, there was a tiny chick underneath the plane...), I'm not surprised. They picked one person from the audience to judge. The second time, they were asked to draw Colonel Sanders (Yes, KFC...) and it turns out that Aoki and Katoh are actually pretty good artists!! Hideaki drew..... himself. ^_^;; But after they saw a picture of what the colonel looked like, he hurriedly added a moustache...... and kept lobbying for himself not to be last, since he's the special guest and people should be nice to him. LOL he came in second to last. Poor Hide.. XD;; After this, there was a tongue twister corner. Nemoto was the only one who could say his, he was really good!!!! Everyone else messed up except for Hideaki, who got no points only because he said a totally different tongue twister (a way easier one) than was on his card. ^_^;;

And then........ uh........ it was "triva corner" time........ erk! Each contestant had to choose a person from the audience to be their partner and help them answer trivia questions about the JackJack members. I was so busy watching as Hideaki picked his own friend (our friend Motoki) for his partner (cheater? XD) that I didn't notice that Kenji wanted me! ^_^;;; I was going to say no, but he was kind of insistent, and what the hey, right? ^_^;;;;; Kenji kind of had to pull me onto stage but it was fun nontheless. ^^ So we all had to sit on stage and help them with a trivia game! I was so nervous that it took me forever to understand the questions and Kenji kept asking the audience to help him translate into english (I understood them all but it was kind of sudden so I acted brain-damaged, I think.. lol). Matsuoka was even a smart-aleck and would shout english across the stage at me before we started. LOL I haven't been on any sort of stage in a looooong time, but it ended up being pretty fun. ^_^ When it was finished, they told us that after the show, they wanted us contestants to wait around in the lobby because they were going to take photos with just us. So yeah, embarrassed, but I want to do it again sometime!!! (or rather, if something like that ever happens again, I won't be so nervous, I think ^^) It's just that when I get nervous, my japanese disappears. Gotta fix thaaaat!! ^o^ Hideaki's introduced me to Kenji before, but I'm not sure if he remembered me when he picked me or not. But later on I was talking to them all and he&Kenji said that they remembered (or rather, Shinoda blurted it out and Kenji followed).. Motoki and Hideaki's team won, and Hideaki hugged him and called him his life partner (*snerk!*) and Motoki picked him up in his arms (like a baby) and twirled him around stage!! What a ham!!!! XDXD;;;

After that, it was mostly over, and the boys made a few announcements (Kenji is doing some secret project with Hideaki in November.. tanoshimi ni ^^!!) and then they made everyone do the handshake thing. It was kind of awkward, but with Motoki being so into everything, it wasn't so bad. ^^ After that, Motoki and I were held back for pictures along with the other two contestants, and then my group went off to search out Hideaki♥ backstage. After that a few of us went out to eat and lots of joking and fun was had! I poured my heart out to my friends and it felt really good for once in a while. ^o^

OH yeah, and courtesy of Stalker Motoki. =D

If I had to say anything about yesterday, it was quite the experience!!! A-chan said that I looked really nervous on stage, and I was, but.. I'd like a video copy please! ^o^

Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on September 16th, 2006 02:44 am (UTC)
They're all St.Rudolph members, I think. Shinoda was Ducky, Aoki was.. Bakazawa, I think, and Katou was the twin guy (he played his twin in Rokkakumyu too). But don't quote me on that, I can't remember exactly! ^_^;;

Oh. I would probably run off the stage...or maybe not. It sounds so much fun. ♥
Mewgokumew2 on September 16th, 2006 03:55 pm (UTC)
Sounds like it was big fun! X.D
I would probably be the same in your situation. Just too shocked to remember any Japanese, hehe.

Hi! ^_^ I was wondering if I may add you? I noticed that you live in Japan, in which I had studied Japanese for two years and still partake in Japan Club. I was also considering in being a English teacher in Japan, but lately i've been really interested in Medical, so i'm not sure which direction i'll take. I get all the time that i'd be a good teacher & nurse! XDD ~~

I'll introduce myself. =D My name is Christina, 19 and currently living in Washington State. ^_^

Aaaaaah! Sooo cool! XDXD I know EXACTLY what you mean though. I talk with my American friends all the time in Japanese, we just ramble on and on, and then I get to a Japanese person and I am like "Hajimemahsid;jfakdsjf;dkf"

...-_-;; I hate it. So I end up not saying anything and then I look like I don't understand a word. And then they ask me stuff in Japanese and I know what they are saying but I'm like "?!??!??!?!"

GRR! Need to be more confident!! Or something...I don't know!! ;-; Plus casual is like 100000x easier for me.

But, we understand each other a little...
