This is by far the hardest article I've ever translated. However, I have a theory to explain it all.

It involves Sakurai Sho.

Since he is the Johnny's idol with the highest IQ to date, and a newscaster in addition, the article had to reflect that. Hence, difficult words and proper newspaper-worthy sentences were in order. Truly, an privilege reserved for the brainiest of all Johnnies.

Now, allow me to collect the pieces of my shattered brain...

中居&倖田は破局…倖田携帯電話を替えた

It's Definitely Influenza A for Ohkura

関ジャニ8・大倉もA型インフルに感染 
Kanjani8 Ohkura Also Has Influenza A Infection


 発熱でダウンしていた関ジャニ8の大倉忠義(24)が、インフルエンザA型に感染していたことが8日、分かった。過去2度の検査では陰性と診断されていたが、8日になっても37・9度の熱があったため、再度病院で検査を受けたところ感染が判明した。関ジャニ8での感染者は3人目。またこの日、元AKB48のタレント・大島麻衣(22)も、自身のブログで感染を告白した。一方、A型インフルに感染していた関ジャニの横山裕(28)と安田章大 (25)は、9日から仕事復帰が決定。同じく感染していた俳優・城田優(23)も、同日にドラマの収録で復帰する。

It has been confirmed on the 8th that Ohkura Tadayoshi (24) of Kanjani8, who was down with fever, has been infected with A-type influenza. Although 2 previous tests came back negative, because he was still running a fever of 37.9 degrees on the 8th, he received another examination at the hospital and this time the infection was determined. He is the 3rd victim of the infection (of influenza A) within Kanjani8. Also that day, former-AKB48 member and talent, Ooshima Mai (22) revealed her own infection on her blog. Meanwhile, Kanjani8 members Yokoyama You (28) and Yasuda Shota (25) who were infected with influenza A, will return to work from the 9th.

Aw crap. I knew this was going to happen. As soon as Yasu went down, it was just a matter of time, since they attended the same fan event. Sigh.

As for the whole, "it's Ryo's fault" comments that I'm seeing all over the place, seriously... What do you want him to do? Grab the virus by the tail and tell it not to infect the others??

Give the guy a break. OK. Actually, it might be funny to see him try.

Ohkura Down

関ジャニ∞・大倉ダウン…主演ドラマの会見欠席
Kanjani8 Ohkura Down... Absent From Press Conference for Starring Drama


 人気グループ、関ジャニ∞の大倉忠義(24)が発熱でダウンしていたことが6日、分かった。同日午前中に検温したところ、熱があったため、午後に予定されていた主演ドラマの会見を急きょ欠席。インフルエンザの簡易検査は陰性だったが、共演する同メンバーの安田章大(25)も先日インフルエンザにかかっていたため、同会見を欠席しており、“主役”のいない異例の会見となってしまった。
Ohkura Tadayoshi (24) of popular group Kanjani8 is down with a high fever, it was revealed on the 6th. After receiving a temperature check in the middle of the morning on the same day, his fever rose, and he made a sudden absence from the press conference for his starring drama in the afternoon. Although an elementary influenza test came back negative, because co-actor and member Yasuda Shota (25) was diagnosed with influenza the day before, they were both absent from the press conference, making it a peculiar press conference without any "main characters" present.

Hina's going to be on Kusanagi's variety show "Pussama" at the end of this month, on the 29th. PR for "My Girl"?

This is DEFINITELY worth a watch. I want to see Hina totally trash Kusanagi. *evil laughs*

*goes to note it down in red on calender*

Mwahahahahhahahah.......!!!

Johnny Tries that Engimono Formula Again...

This has actually already been translated by various folk at the Kanjani8 community. But since it mentions Yoko, I'm gonna translate this for him. ♥ And of course, anyone else who by some miracle actually like my translation style.

月替わりジャニーズドラマが10月スタート!
Monthly Switch Johnnys Drama to Start in October!


Collapse )

I'm sure it's only under the orders of that evil old man that Yoko has to insist it's a new type of drama. It's basically the same format as Engimono. Short stories, mysterious circumstances, blah blah... And wasn't the point of Engimono originally to showcase the juniors? Maybe there aren't anymore outstanding juniors to showcase. 8D But as I've said somewhere else (maybe it was here), if it means more Yoko on screen, I'm not going to complain. He's getting really popular with the networks nowadays!! Yay!! Give the man more dramas!! Make him a regular on every talk show possible!! 行け!横ちょ!♥♥♥

Anyway, FujiTV has something on it on their news update page here. So other than salaryman Ohno (ROFL!!! I wanna see this.) :
- Maru & Yasu will appear as a comedy duo (expected. But YamaDa is cute so Yay!!) who aren't selling well.
- Kato will act as a doctor (the title of the story arc is "98-point Hot-blooded Elite Doctor and Girl with the Incurable Disease". So unless Kato is supposed to be the girl....)
- Hmm... Hina's story title is "The Fight For Points, Outburst!? Oyabun (big boss), Aniki, Chinpira". Now I doubt he will be the Oyabun, he's not old and wrinkly enough. He just might be gorilla-like enough to be the Aniki (big brother or senior member in the mob), but I really want him to be the Chinpira (punk, hoodlum, yob). That would be hilarious, and anyway... I really think that if Hina wasn't a Johnny, he'd be a chinpira. Hee hee...
- Koyama is a NEET (Not currently in Employment, Education or Training) (LOL!!!)
- Leader's acting as a useless husband!!! BWAHA!! I can already imagine his "but... but... I'm trying..." look!! Lol!! Leader!! ♥
