So, welcome 2012! It's kinda late, but Happy New Year everyone! Happy New Year dear lj friends buddies :) 2011 was an (another?) up downs year, may things happen that surprised me, beyond my expectation, but there are also many below my expectation. Maa, past is history. May on this new year we can be a better person, more reliable, and may we engrave may exciting memories, chyeaa \m/
So, JUMP winter concert started today. And.......... its been just the second day of 2012, but JUMP makes fans hearts jump XD As i predicted when Ryuu got suspended, i bet that this year they gonna have an Asian Tour because Yuto, Chinen, and Yamada would already graduated. I was surprised to know that what i predicted comes true XD
Their Asian Tour will be held from March - June. Unexpectedly, they start off from Hongkong
(24-25 March), and then Taiwan
(28-29 April), then they head back to Japan
(will be on Yokohama Arena i heard. 1-7 May), then to Thailand
(26-27 May), and at last, they will end the tour in Korea (23-24 June). (source: @tv_pia, @dokkero, and other twitter accounts).
Seems like they dont wanna lose from Kisumai whomm just officially debutted |D It kinda surprised me that Singapore isn't in their list. Seems like SG isn't relevant yet in Johnny's eyes? fffuh~
Also, also, also! Yabu announced a big news!
*drum rolls* He wrote and sent an essay (thousand words worth) to Waseda University and got accepted! Which means he is a university student now 8DDDD LOL After almost 4 years graduated from high school, he finnally got into university and be a student again. I kinda wonder why he wants to go back to study
- he already graduated from high school since 2008
- JUMP is busy. They have Asia Tour this year. Also, JUMP gonna release a new single in February. Which mean they'll be busy promoting it. They also have Yan Yan JUMP, that lately has been hosted by YabuHika only (yayy, happy biased fan is happy :3)
- And the most intriguing is his major! He studies Human Science (//Department of Human Informatics and Cognitive Sciences
). I know right, what's with that sounds-so-cool major?! Never cross my mind, even if Yabu got into university, he'll study science. I mean, what's deshou! He only talks about soccer, food, friends, sometimes wise words. what's with science! And i'm curious with what he wrote in his essay (according to @dokkero Yabu wrote 6-7 thousand words essay to (kind of) pass the test(?)). Thousands words of science. Sounds so nerd but cool.
Human science (also, humanistic social science, moral science and human sciences) refers to the investigation of human life and activities via a phenomenological methodology that acknowledges the validity of both sensory and psychological experience. It includes but is not necessarily limited to humanistic modes of inquiry within fields of the social sciences and humanities, including history, sociology, anthropology, and economics. Its use of an empirical methodology that encompasses psychological experience contrasts to the purely positivistic approach typical of the natural sciences which exclude all methods not based solely on sensory observations. Thus the term is often used to distinguish not only the content of a field of study from those of the natural sciences, but also its methodology.
Okay, his major sounds so complicated yet fun. Simply, he studies about human. What human was, is, will. Hmm? WHAT ARE YOU YABU?! If on magazine interview Inoo is nobeled to be the most mysterious member, i think Yabu also. Or is it because Inoo becomes Yabu's best buddy which make Inoo's virus influences to him.......... i talk non sense X'D
Anyway, JUMP got their 2nd university student (What's up with Keito's entrance exams? he failed? :o), and it is Yabu Kota, which is JUMP's leader. And the fact he actually is in the age of graduating from university than entering is so awesome. Whatever the reason it is, i think he'll put his best on it. And if it makes him appear less in TV (actually do not want this to happen but if he's too busy, instead of gaining weight, he'll become more skinny XD), i don't mind :D I do hope maybe someday, like Shige, he will release a book. If Shige writes novels, Yabu should release a thesis book XDD The first Johnnys to release book lol He might want to ask Koichi for some advice since Koichi is Johnnys' 1st science freak :3 Or maybe also Tego, since Tego is studying Human Science (but hasnt graduated yet lol he's busy concert-ing and take care of his girlfriend? :3).
Wait, what's with Yabu and Tego relationship? First, it was BEST wo Abake, and now they're studying the same thing 8D
