Okamoto Keito is too good and too precious, and the world doesn’t deserve him, but he blesses us with his presence anyway. The first time I saw Keito, I liked him immediately because the easiest way to charm me is to say, “YOU BETTER WATCH OUT, JUN,” and “SORRY JUN.”

Today marks the day when NEWS officially became a 4-member group 5 years ago.

And to be completely honest, I never would have dreamed that I’d celebrate the date years later. I was super anxious for months to come, still fearing that NEWS’ activities would go downhill or be separated in the members’ individual work until eventually they existed as a group only on paper but not together on stage or TV.

Boy am I glad I was wrong. 

Now we have TV shows that have them interact with one another. Concerts where everyone is just having so much FUN! Magazine photos that have them all together in one place at the same time (remember those 1-1-2-2 arrangements?). KoyaShige getting solo lines and screen time. All those lovely old songs with wonderful new arrangements. All those lovely new songs that bring out their ever improving voices. And - many - releases! ♥ 2016 has been a blast!

I know that NEWS do not want to have their group’s time separated in 8, 6 and 4 member NEWS so I’m not going to go full-out “Happy Anniversary!” here. But Hoshi wo mezashite had this whole “born again” theme which, in my opinion, is even more fitting for 4-member NEWS. It was a very bumpy ride and I feared the worst for a long time but I could not wish for a more perfect group now. So, although I know how much pain it has caused, I am actually very happy this metamorphosis happened. The current NEWS is more than I could have dreamed of back then.

So thank you, NEWS, for taking the risk, for working hard, for not taking No for an answer, for growing so damn fast in such a short time and for being so effing dedicated to your fans, your jobs and your fellow members that it is truly inspiring.

Looking back on when I first became a fan of Hey! Say! JUMP, my biggest mistake was probably having JUMPing CARnival be the first concert that I watched. There was no hope for escape after that. My heart had already decided who my favourite was, even if my brain didn’t want it.
