Ok, so I meant to mention this, but then fox shenanigans post kinda took priority, lol

First off, I did see the news about who's taking over SCP from KAT-TUN...and it's NEWS, my secondary fandom. I had a LOT of mixed feelings about it, since I'm still super bummed about KAT-TUN losing it, and the simple fact is that I don't like NEWS as much as KAT-TUN. They're close. They have part of an entire wall devoted to them (as did KAT-TUN before all this shit went down)...but they aren't my ichibans. That said though, the fact of the matter is KAT-TUN is leaving SCP no matter what, so this is probably the best outcome for this shitty situation. Had it been anyone else, I'd probably have been even more upset. At least I know that if/when KAT-TUN ever guests on there, we'll probably have the same kind of atmosphere we got when the two groups were together before...at least I hope so.
Here's just hoping the NEWS fandom is as good about uploading it as Hyphens were. It'll suck to have to scrounge for rips.

This is actually gonna be a big test for NEWS to see just HOW well they can hold my attention. Before they were just cute distractions between KAT-TUN releases...now they gotta step up and basically be the replacement primary fandom for a while. We'll see how well that works out. I'll probably just keep doing what I'm doing with HSJ, since I only bother with rips for them anyways.

In toku fandom news...


Sadly, I do not get a wish for collecting them all :P
But yeah, all 15 Eyecons! Plus the ones in the middle for Ghost, Boost, Specter, and the special Kishidan Ghost Eyecon that came with the theme song single. The only ones left to collect are the upcoming Eyecons for Specter and Ghosts's powerups, but it'll still be a while. So far I haven't heard anything about Necrom...he probably won't get one. I haven't decided if I want to get his toy or not...but if Alain grows on me (which after ep. 22 is a very real possibility), and also doesn't die by series end (also a very real possibility because Neo-Heisei series suck), I might.

I'm still sad with KAT-TUN losing SCP, but that's how it is I guess - I won't get over it anytime soon though :'(.

I'm glad NEWS was the one to inherit. Although I'm not a News fan (well, besides KT I'm not really into other Johnnies) for all that they've been through too and for all that they've accomplished I'm happy it was them.

If this hiatus doesn't kill us it will definitely makes us close to immortal ^^'

"If this hiatus doesn't kill us it will definitely makes us close to immortal"

LOL, Amen to that. TBH, seeing how strongly NEWS came back after their big hiatus after Ryo and Pi left, I think a hiatus for KAT-TUN is probably a good thing. It'll let them focus on themselves for a while and let them "recharge" as they said, but also give Hyphens a chance to work through their feelings and get themselves ready for the new KAT-TUN. It'll also give the KAT-TUN members a chance to them themselves take a good hard look at the group and reinforce their resolve about continuing.

NEWS admitted to doing basically the same thing (although Massu and Tegoshi had the option of continuing with just Tegomass, but really wanted to continue with everyone). There's a LOT of parallels to what NEWS went through vs. what KAT-TUN is going through now. Granted, at least NEWS' members had the bright idea of leaving BEFORE the 10th Anniversary instead of ON it *grumbles*. NEWS' 10th Anniversary was a lot of fun, and I was really hoping KAT-TUN's would have been just as good. Now I have to hope for a decent 15th or something instead >.o Fingers crossed we GET that far.

Yeah as much as it's painful that they're going on a hiatus I also think they do need to take some time to get their ideas straight, re-think things. Just take a step back so that they can then move forward full steam - sometimes in life you really need to do that.

I've heard that NEWS and KAT-TUN have some parallels, so let's hope like NEWS KAT-TUN comes back stronger!

Lol, I'll keep my fingers crossed for a 15th anniversary! If they unjinx the 2/3 year "curse" they will definitely make it to the 15th anniversary ^^

I'm really annoyed KT have to halt ALL their activities and it breaks my heart they have to stop Tame ni Naru Tabi and Shounen Club Premier.. once again just as they start getting back on track it all comes crashing down...
I am a little shocked NEWS got it next. I honestly did expect either Hey Say or KisuMai to get the show cos they seem to be bigger and have more fans than NEWS and KT combined.
As I'm not a NEWS fan, I won't continue watching SCP now they've stopped hosting it but I give NEWS all the best!

EYECONS!!! They look so pretty! I love how you've arranged them <3
I wish I liked Ghost enough to start getting the glittery eyecons.... maybe I will like Ghost once I start watching it again (I've taken like.... a 3 month break from it so far... I think I'm gunna wait till we're over half way done to marathon it).

I think they prefer the older groups to host SCP, since it's got a more mature feel. SMAP hosted before KAT-TUN, IIRC, they probably skipped Arashi because they has a shit-ton of shows already. I was actually kind of shocked KAT-TUN got it next, but they were probably trying to get the group back on their feet after Koki left. Plus, I think the aesthetic of KAT-TUN as a group fit the show well. The set was awesome under them, like a bar or club, lol. NEWS is all bright and colorful. That's gonna be a huge change for me right there, TBH ^^; I love both groups, they're like two sides of the same coin that balance each other, but right now the balance is gone and I hate it :/ Still, I'll take what I can get, I guess.

lol, yeah, the Eyecon circle is a bit lop-sides, and I think I accidentally put Houdini in the wrong spot, but whatever :P Most of them are the glittery DX Eyecons, but a few are the gashapon or candy toy versions. Those would be Newton, Goemon, Ryoma, and Houdini...because getting DX versions would have been more expensive than they're worth. All they're missing are the holographic stickers anyways (and TBH, they're probably more show accurate, but whatever).
Ghost is getting REALLY interesting! We had another major plot twist in ep. 21, and the next few episodes will be dealing with the aftermath. Also, Alain is well on his way for his redemption arc, so I'm guessing it's only a matter of time before we see him fighting alongside Takeru and Makoto. I'm just REALLY hoping they don't kill him off like they did Chase as, despite my best efforts to resist, I seem to have gotten attached to him too. ^^; This series has been subverting a lot of recent Rider tropes though, so who knows?

Smap hosted before KT?! I thought it was Tokio/V6?! o_O
No one wants OR needs anymore Arashi tbh -_-

'Alain is well on his way for his redemption arc, so I'm guessing it's only a matter of time before we see him fighting alongside Takeru and Makoto.' ..... spoilers much? xD

So we're on episode 21 now... so a few more til we're at the half way point and I can watch it again xD

It was Tokio...my bad. I dunno why I thought it was SMAP (maybe because they're everywhere, lol)

Also, sorry if I spoilered, but we've pretty much seen this coming for ages now. It's pretty obvious he's not really cut out to be an evil Rider :P
