Johnny's Jr. Land!

This looks like exciting times to be a Junior fan. It was just announced that there will be a new Johhny's Junior program called Johnny's Jr. Land on Sky Perfect TV, which IIRC is a Japanese cable network.

The program is said to be set in the style of an amusement park with their being different segments, such as a talk part, on location shots and challenges. The CMs for the program will start on September 30th and the program will begin on October 2nd, running from 9PM to 950PM.

The main hosts of the program will be Nakajima Kento and Kikuchi Fuma and the other Juniors listed to be a part of this program are; Sato Shori, Matsushima Sou, You Marius, Kuramoto Kaoru, Jinguji Yuta, Takahashi Fu, Takahashi Saneyasu and Wakayama Rei.

This sounds like it'll be a great program for the Juniors and should be fun to watch. I think it also helps explain some of the picks for which Juniors are going to be in the Kis-My-Ft2/Junior concert in a day or so and I wouldn't be surprised if there isn't an announcement for this there.

On the other hand I'm disappointed that the other two members of B.I. Shadow don't seem to be really involved in this. Maybe Johnny's doesn't want another fan reaction like they had with breaking up Ya-Ya-Yah if they are aiming to just debut Nakaken and Fuma from the group so they're trying to separate them before debut.

I do think it's interesting that the other Juniors are all a part of JaPAnese Hi! and I think we're looking at the new generation of up and coming Juniors with them. Though I do wish Johnny's would debut some more of the older generation before getting too wrapped up in them.

Oh this sounds so exciting!!
I´m always happy if Juniors get more attention.
Nakaken, Fuma and the group around Shori? I´m not really surprised about that.
Why do I get that strong feeling we´ll get another debut this year?!

I'm happy that there will be another jr show..but I was hoping ABC-Z & MSM would be listed as part of it seeing as they don't appear on Yan Yan Jumping like the other jrs....

I´m really glad when I read those news here but as much as I like the selected Juniors, I wish other Juniors would participate in this show too. Like Taiga-tachi, the other two B.I Shadow members,ABC-Z, Mis snow man, etc.
And not to forget Kanju ! They deserve a show as well which would be very entertaining.
The pushing for those selected Juniors is more than obvious and I´m really looking forward to see this show but if you´re fan of other Juniors too, it gets disappointing that they don´t participate there .
I agree with Chris on the debut and my thought is that Fuma, Kento Shori, Sou etc. will debut for the Volleyball Cup in November which could be temporary only, since Kisumai debuted just last month.
But Johnny always comes with so many surprises (that ABC-xyZ thing..) that I´m already expecting new surprises again soon.
