Remembering this I went through the special to see if I couldn’t spot them as that would be their first appearance on TV. And while I failed to find Matsushima I did find Shori, and honestly it wasn’t that hard. I can’t help but think Shori had to be one of the Juniors in that group that probably stood out from the start so I can’t say I’m surprised with the fact that he’s gotten so much attention once he took to the stage on Shounen Club.

But while I can see him reaching the same levels of popularity of Yamada Ryosuke in time and with the right exposure, such as getting drama roles, I think Nakajima Kento will give him a good run for his money when it comes to being the most popular member of the group. Nakaken has time on his side as well as the fact that he’s gotten drama roles and I think he’ll get more now that he’s a part of a debuted group. And I think those are the two of this new unit that I’ll definitely be keeping my eye on.
Also with watching the first episode of this month's Shounen Club and paying attention to who has been singing the song With You I have the feeling this could very well end up being a B-side on Sexy Zone's debut single. Even though other Juniors have sung it all the members of Sexy Zone have as well and a portion of them have been in every performance of it so it's a song they all know by now and saves them from having to learn a new song to perform when they get their chance to perform something that won't be their debut song like when they start having concerts.
