Because of issues with blogger the review meant for today ended up getting posted days earlier. I think things have sorted out so I will be trying this again for this episode.
I guess I cannot complain about getting an episode ahead of schedule as that means I am one more episode closer to being able to catch up with the more recent episodes. Not to mention Kanjani8's debut should be coming up soon, and more future Hey! Say! JUMP members are showing up so those are things I am really looking forward to now with these episodes.
It is a bit odd to see no sign of J.J. Express this episode. I can only think that it was still a new enough group they just did not have the members set in stone yet as I know JJE does not remain as a trio for long. In fact I am sure by next month the line up will have probably changed already, if just to add to it. It is a group I am interested in as a good portion of the members that were in it at some point have debuted; Nakajima Yuto, Arioka Daiki, Inoo Kei, Takaki Yuya, Hashimoto Ryosuke, Morimoto Ryutaro and I am not sure if they were actual official members but they were associated with the grouping, Tamamori Yuta, Yamada Ryosuke, and Chinen Yuri. Not to mention two of the Bakaleya6 are associated with the group as well, Morimoto Shintaro and Kyomoto Taiga. So even though the group went through so many changes it is an important one to keep an eye on because of who some of those members and associated Juniors were.
