New Johnny's unit on the horizon?

So I'm sitting here jamming to this for, like, the 80th time today, when this little gem of a story pops up.

The good people at Toyko Sports are reporting that a new Johnny's unit is gearing up to steal your fangirl/boy hearts. And, no, I'm not talking about Sexy Zone.

With the recent withdrawal of Yamapi and Ryo from NEWS and the long ago departure of Akanishi from KAT-TUN, a new, unit will be formed with the remaining members of both groups.

I'll give you a moment.

We good? Ok.

Apparently, they have already met to exchange ideas and work out what activities they'll be doing. An insider stated Kamenashi and Tegoshi are representing their respective groups and are moving forward with their discussion.
Hm, why Tegoshi?

Anyway, here's the deal:
1) The unit will only last from December to March
2) They will release 1 single

I assume the single will have 10 versions -- 1 with a group cover and then 9 individual ones with a bunch of different b-sides to drive you insane. Maybe they'll throw in an 11th version with a DVD for extra trolling.

So what are they going to call themselves? The Leftovers? Well, at the moment "KAT-TUN & NEWS" is the strongest contender. Some unnamed music producer said a lot of group names were suggested at first, but they all talked about it and finally decided to go with something simple.

KAT-TUN & NEWS just might be making their first appearance on December 31st! No, not on the Countdown! On Kouhaku! The unnamed music producer went on to say, "I heard they're secretly planning to make the group the highlight of Kouhaku. There's also word Fuji TV will begin airing the "KAT-TUN & NEWS" show in January."

Will K&N be a success? Could they put a dent in Arashi and Kanjani8's popularity? Will Pi continue on solo in search of a foreign star to collab with just like his bffs? We will see.

As I said, it is Tokyo Sports, so I wouldn't put any money on it happening, but it's an interesting thought.


unrelated p.s. i know i never post anymore but you still leave nice comments. i really appreciate it. thank you!

WHAAAT? That's certainly shocking but on short notice, don't you think???
Oct. 16th, 2011 11:21 pm (UTC)
Honestly, I want this to be true just to see the Tego-Kame interactions (well, lovefest from Tego's side :p)

Bring it on, Johnny~!!

Re: New Johnny's unit on the horizon?
If true, Tegoshi may be including his 'taco buffet' to KT. LOL!

Kouhaku? does that mean only Arashi will attend the Countdown?
Oct. 26th, 2011 04:30 am (UTC)
Naww I know that Arashi will be hosting Kohaku again this year. They'll prolly do a live feed to the countdown like they did last year.

Leftovers remind me so much of leftover food (is hungry in the morning) xD

Thanks very much for the laughs, this is a good start of the week~ (I'm good if this happens, but it truly sounds more like a rumor to create buzz than truth :P)
Oct. 17th, 2011 03:04 am (UTC)
I would love this to happen. XD
Oct. 17th, 2011 03:49 am (UTC)
This is...interesting.
Oct. 17th, 2011 04:13 am (UTC)
Thanks a lot ^^
But I really don't like this idea -__-'
Oct. 17th, 2011 04:29 am (UTC)
Very funny, Tokyo Sports!
But I admit that KT and NEWS are getting more similar music-wise.
Oct. 17th, 2011 04:38 am (UTC)
omg whuuuut?!

Well I was hoping for a NEWS & and Taguchi, Nakamaru collaboration. I wasn't expecting this thought.
Oct. 17th, 2011 05:42 am (UTC)
this is really an interesting rumor :D

HAHAHAHAHHA this could be very very true. u cracked me up with this sentence.
Oct. 17th, 2011 07:59 am (UTC)
interesting... aaah JE.. do u really need us fans around?
Oct. 17th, 2011 08:22 am (UTC)
Btw, if I could form an army of fans to go help out that dude who broke into Johnnysan's place, I would make sure to do it right about now.
I declare 2011 to be the year Johnnysan tried his best to mess with NEWS fans.

Your post cracked me up, I look forward to seeing if this desperate attempt of JE to gain fans actually takes place.. and then if it actually works..
*I'll never say no to seeing Nakamaru & Massu together, it's pleasant*

Thanks for your thoughts!
Oct. 17th, 2011 08:29 am (UTC)
If this is real: wtf.
If this is not real: wtf, make it happen Johnny.
Oct. 17th, 2011 08:44 am (UTC)

Oct. 17th, 2011 06:32 pm (UTC)
Kame's ego alone renders this rumor to be completely untrue. It would kill him to think that he's one of the irrelevant leftover members that needed to join forces with NEWS' irrelevant members to have a stab at becoming relevant again.

If this turns out to be true, then I don't even know...
Oct. 17th, 2011 07:27 pm (UTC)
this would be A+ hilarious if it happened.
Oct. 17th, 2011 07:50 pm (UTC)
This is the best rumor ever. I actually kind of hope it's true.
Oct. 17th, 2011 11:33 pm (UTC)
ooooh, this definitely should happen!
Oct. 18th, 2011 08:24 am (UTC)
mmm, dislike xD
Oct. 18th, 2011 03:16 pm (UTC)
WOW that would be interesting but then again i would pitty them so hard i might just buy the single...
the leftovers... L.M.A.O
Oct. 18th, 2011 07:59 pm (UTC)
This is really hilarious... haha, or not?!
I reallyyy hope it`s not true-.- I mean come on i love KAT-TUN and are they really less popular after Jin left? His behaviour already annoyed me at the end and i think KAT-TUN has done really well so do they have to be put up with News?? I don`t even know them, i just knew Yamapi and Ryo and i didn`t really saw anything from NEWS.
Oh man, Kame deserves more!!
<3 him:):P
Oct. 18th, 2011 08:16 pm (UTC)
So what are they going to call themselves? The Leftovers?


honestly, i don't think this will happen. of course a lot of fans want the akanishi gang to record a song together but this is wishfulness, like global peace or akame...
Oct. 19th, 2011 09:51 am (UTC)
The Leftovers

Oct. 20th, 2011 11:45 am (UTC)
Well, when have these "temporary mixed unit" rumors ever proved true anyways?
But I do wonder if KaTTUN has been less popular without Jin. Quite sure it has...
Oct. 27th, 2011 08:47 am (UTC)
what is the point of combining NEWS and Kat tun?i mean, if they were newbies then it wld make sense but both groups are alrdy established in their own ways!
Nov. 5th, 2011 07:06 am (UTC)
Johhny-san had too much drink last night...What did you put in the old man's drink,you people?!
Nov. 11th, 2011 08:18 pm (UTC)
First, I'd like to say I'm glad you're back.... Your post always puts a smile to my face...

Anyways,I'm not so sure I'd like the idea of the 'leftovers' being together but it's all kind of interesting how they will interact with each other and what music they will have...

I'm a KAT-TUN fan and Kame-biased, I think the group is doing well without Jin... So I'm not sure if this will all go well...
Dec. 8th, 2011 06:14 am (UTC)
These chunes are pretty dope, didn't even make it through reading most of the post tbh. I just got the jist, and then went to youtube to jam out lol.
Dec. 20th, 2011 07:16 am (UTC)
Hi I think you're wrong
Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Take care.
Dec. 28th, 2011 10:07 pm (UTC)
Hm. Well, at least more interesting than Sexy Zone. ;)
It'd be hilarious if it were to happen, given that I'm already so amused by the mere chance ;) (and Maru could be chummy with Massu and Koki could cuddle with Tegoshi and ... there'd be new pairings!)
Thanks for sharing this!
