20. What are your thoughts on Uchi and Kusano?
note: I forgot Uchi and Notti's image color, I'm deeply sorry! (n_n)v
Oh, those two... I know a little about them, individually or in NEWS. Yet I'm happy that they became part of the group; it's history wouldn't be colorful without them.
( Cheriiiiish~ )
19. Your favorite GIF and/or SWF.
note: What does SWF mean? Seriously, I don't know O.o
My favorite gif... I can't decide, but it has to have Tegoshi in it! *searches gifs from my 30-DNC Day 3 post* ♪♫♪♫
Or if not... Any gif concerning Tegomass no Mahou concert (for it is my favorite concert eveeeeer).
( Like this! )
17. Your favorite group picture.
I have many faves! Sweeeear. And since I can't choose, I'll just put my very recent edit (edited this 5 minutes ago :p) and consider this as my fave. (But then again, I have tons and tons of faves! Damn!)
Quote credits to Keiichan, on his J-web entry here. As for the picture I don't know which magazine this is from, just got them on Tumblr with inala on the credit. xD
P.S. I think this is my shortest answer ever! LOL~
Before I start answering DAY 15 of the 30-DAY NEWS CHALLENGE, d
aaamnit I'm still on day 15? O.o let me tell you my feels about me finally coming back after a month-long break from surfing the net...
...I am fandom-deprived. >_<
But thanks to CTC my fangirling didn't stop. Even though updates were scarce, I have fandomfriends who made my fandom life going. ♥
And of course it isn't only CTC. With or without a NEWSclan, oh, I'm always active in text messaging.
AKO PA! :p
The only thing I accomplished during the break was watching NEWS' perfs on Johnny's Countdown 2012-2013.
Little did I know, another great, heart-warming, a thing that makes a Kamilia proud, happened yesterday.
Finally. KARA on Tokyo Dome!! *tears of joy*
I'll do a separate 'feels post' for that.
So, moving on to 30-DNC (I intended to make my ramble short because the main course in this post is still the NEWS challenge).
Day 15: Your favorite friendship
( Iitai dake~ )
13. Rank them from 1 to 6/4 (1 being the best) when it comes to hotness.
Hotness meter? Hmm...
Except for #1, because I absolutely think that Tegoshi is the hottest guy on the planet. LOL. ♥
But daammnit, as much as I want to picspam NEWS' hotness in this post, I can't. I might die!! I MIGHT DIE!!!! asdfghjkl~
Sorry, no pic/gif spam for today! :(
We all know that NEWS is hot. Period. ♥o♥
12. Rank them from 1 to 6/4 (1 being the best) when it comes to dancing.
This is hard. Hmm...
Ranking (1-6) *my supposed-to-be-ranking*
- Tegoshi (?)
- Tegoshi (?)
As for Tegoshi invading the list, I think he sometimes dances even better than Massu, or sometimes worse than Shige.
That's what I think. Besides, I'm biased. Don't sue me! *hides*
**too lazy to put lotsa gifs in this post. shall update this later. An awesome dancing Massu for now ^^*

9. Which is your favorite duet by NEWS members?
note: Err, this question is tricky! If I answer Tegomass, it would be a Tegomass and not a NEWS song anymore. But... since Tegomass is in NEWS and NEWS has Tegomass, err... A Tegomass song is a valid answer, ayt?
Kibou no Hikari wo Kokoro ni Tomosou (希望の光を心に灯そう ) . One of TM's longest titled songs and my indisputable #1 among their songs. I love its simplicity, period. It's the kind of song that I'll never get tired listening to, forever. ♫
Its tempo is moderate; the key (signature) and the notes are not that high nor low; Tegomass' blending is not complicated, the instrumental parts are just simple, what else? Even though it doesn't sound as much emotional as my 2nd favorite Hajimete no Asa, or not as magical as my 3rd favorite Mahou no Melody, KNHWKNT
The song is from Kiss~ Kaerimichi no Love Song~ single.
Kibou no Hikari wo Kokoro ni Tomosou ♪
8. Which is your favorite solo song by a NEWS member?
note: I haven't posted day 7 yet, for I find it hard to answer *scratches head*
I loooove this question. Not because I'll be answering some Tegoshi-related-biasness-stuff here, but because my answer is...
Vampire wa Kaku Katariki by Kato Shigeaki. ♪
Which is absolutely awesome (in my own sense) because I just can't believe that my answer isn't coming from Tegoshi's solo songs.
How to explain this... Uh, all of Tegoshi's solos are exquisitely beautiful, up to the point that I can't choose which is my favorite, and so I consider 'em all. But the question says "favorite solo song by a NEWS member", and multiple answers aren't allowed, are they?
So... Vampaia... Love it the first time I heard it. Everything--the sound effects, Shige's voice, AUTOTUNE!
Unlike some (or most) listeners who find Shige's rap weird, for me it clearly shows another genius of him. That genius who can make people dance by the upbeat rhythm of the song (really, everytime Vampaia plays I tap my feet and sway
Basically, Vampaia turns me into a dancer. Well because obviously it's hard to sing this! *yells*
Only Shige can. It's his own style; no one could ever copy.
Vampire wa Kaku Katariki ♪
6. What is your favorite NEWS album?
note: I did day 5 and day 6 in one day (today). I have to be fast, because holidays are fast approaching too!
I don't know why. Maybe because of the tracklist? Let's see.
- Ai no Matador (愛のマタドール)
- Sayaendou (サヤエンドウ)
- Change the World
- Kimi Omou Yoru (君思う夜)
- Alibi (アリバイ)
- Code (Ryo Nishikido solo)
- Chirarizumu (チラリズム)
- Ai Nante (愛なんて)
- Nantoka Narusa (なんとかなるさ)
- Gomen Ne Juliet (ゴメンネ ジュリエット)
- Hadashi no Cinderella Boy (裸足のシンデレラボーイ)
- Hoshi o Mezashite (星をめざして)
- Mafuyu no Nagareboshi (真冬のナガレボシ)
- Sono Egao Boku ni Misete (その笑顔 僕に見せて)
Maybe because of the jacket covers! Let's see.
Yeah, maybe it is. Pacific jacket covers are some of the best in NEWS discography, who would disagree? The scrapbook-ish style is so home-y, so crafty, so nostalgic... Like NEWS is telling us, much of their memories are kept in here. ♫ Plus, the covers are cute!
Lastly, I just realized that I love pacific because it's NEWS 6nin comeback album (I have to emphasize the 6nin because 4nin comeback is another thing, right?) Though BEST is the compilation of literally NEWS' best songs, err... I'm not into compilations. I love pacific, color, touch and LIVE more. ♥
Can I just say I love all of NEWS albums and singles? Because I love all their songs! ♪
5. What is your favorite NEWS PV?
It was weeeek.
Because of this:
Yes, because it's weeeek and NEWS are the dorks in suits.
But now, WORLD QUEST is definitely my favorite! ♫ ♥
*THE FULL PV ISN'T OUT YET, WHAT TO DO? HMMM... I'LL JUST RAMBLE ABOUT NEWS' AWESOMENESS IN THE SHORT PV! MASSU IS SO FREAKIN' COOL & HANDSOME~! KOYAMA'S EYES ARE SPARKLING! LITERALLY! HE EVEN PLAYED SOCCER WITH SOME PEOPLE! SHIGE LOOKS REFRESHING...
^ Leya, what a ramble. 8D
Here it is. The short version of the PV.
See for yourself~ ♫
4. What’s your favorite NEWS song?
Honestly, I have 19 favorite NEWS songs--and still counting. xD
But 2 songs are in my #1 spot: BE FUNKY! and Towairo no Koi.
Be Funky! ♪
Towairo no Koi ♪
I can't choose which one I like better; one sounds entirely different from another; both have the same impact when I listen to them. ♥
Before ending this post, mind if I tell you a story? About BE FUNKY! and how this song hooked me really, really bad.
The moment I heard the song there's an unexplainable feeling inside me...Like I want to do something so bad but I really had no idea what that "something" is. Dance? Sing? A certain move or gesture? O___o
When I watched LIVE3x, I figured it out.
00:40, 01:08, 1:22, 01:37, 02:31. See for yourself.
Almost all the moves Tegoshi did. THAT'S IT. And I'm not even trying to be biased. But that's it. I was like, GOODNESS GRACIOUS TEGOSHI DID IT FOR ME! While watching that perf, I literally went wild and tried to copy Tegoshi's moves and such. I have to include 03:36, when Ryo bit his lip--oh that's also what I wanna do! *o*
I love Be Funky! from the time I first heard it. But I loved it more because of that unexplainable thing that Tegoshi (and Ryo) explained for me. Again, I'm saying: I did not intend to be biased. ♥___♥
What a story.
BE FUNKY! is the #1 song that makes me hyper! (Although I'm hyper all the time~ LOL)
Towairo no Koi is the #1 song that makes me... damn I still don't have any explanation for this O_o
I love these 2 songs. By the way, if you're curious what are the other 17 NEWS songs that I love (my faves!) Here's the list:
In no particular order:
- Push On
- Game of Love
- Hoshi wo Mezashite
- FLY AGAIN
- Easy Come Easy Go
- Say Hello
- With Me
- Taiyou no Namida
- Endless Summer
- Baby! Be my Baby!
- Full Swing
- (the newest addition) WORLD QUEST
naerinews 9mornings you might need this ^___^
1. How were you introduced to NEWS?
5. What is your favorite NEWS PV?
14. Your favorite lyric from one of their songs
30. Recommend a song for anyone who might not know NEWS.
Yay. This looks better. I'll not be confused anymore. :)
By the way, I can't contain my feels for WORLD QUEST. Read: ↓
LOOOOL obviously I missed Tumblr, and obviously I'm going wild over those FLAWLESS gifs of our FLAWLESS boys!
(look at Shige ↑, look at his side view! Isn't he flawless???* kyaaaa~)
And because of this WORLD QUEST CRAZE I'm having, I immediately changed my Tumblog background! ♥ Look at those gifs! (of course this is a screencap so the gifs won't move :p)
And as you can see I also changed my LJ layout.
Naguluhan pa nga sa bagong layout si binibinikahel eh ^o^ Hehehe.
OYASUMI nasai! I shall answer DAY 3 tomorrow.
3. Who is your NEWS ichiban?
**gif credits to misstennis
(WAIT. I SHOULD ANSWER THIS TOMORROW, NOT TONIGHT. DON'T BE STUBBORN TEGOSHI--I MEAN, DON'T BE STUBORN LEYA ><")
Wahahaha oyasumi for real~! :3
2. Is NEWS Your Favorite JE Band? Why or Why not?
note: before answering this one I watched WORLD QUEST short ver and I think I'm gonna spill tears any time now!!!!!! ;o; I love NEWS, I really really do.
NEWS is my first, foremost,
and if i can say ONLY fandom. I can never be so sure enough, but I think that NEWS is the perfect boy band in JE and in all the world! ♥
Diversity is the key--as individuals, they have contrasting personalities, each of them has different voice qualities, and their looks completely differ from one another... But when they become one, I really feel that they are ONE. Hard to explain, eh? NEWS is a diverse group. It's what makes them unique, what makes them prominent. I also think that compared to the other groups who have established a certain style, NEWS changes its style from time to time.
And of course, the drama. This group has a lot to tell, from its history to the members themselves. They say NEWS is the most emotional fandom; I completely agree! *crying right now fufufu~*
To be honest, I am actually still torn between 6-nin NEWS and 4-nin NEWS. Because for me, NEWS 6 is still the perfect NEWS. The perfect combination, the ideal group. You know, Yamapi is the hot factor, Ryo is the cool factor, Shige is the intellectual one, Koyama is the "mama", Massu is the source of cuteness and Tegoshi is the diva. With RyoPi leaving, the diversity lessened. But I can't turn my back on the remaining four, because NEWS 4 is something else.
They are the strongest NEWS, the best NEWS ('cause they said it and I believe them!) ♥
Every time I get depressed thinking about NEWS 6 and NEWS 4 and whatever NEWS had experienced, I also realize that if not for those trials, this group wouldn't be as important as it is now.
Bottom line: I LOVE NEWS.
Enuf said I can't type properly anymore ;o;
