I cannot believe I am almost done with answering all the questions for this. I will be sad when I get to the last question as I have enjoyed answering them, so thank you to everyone who left a question this year.
This question comes from Nanu fui:
what do you think about Kisumai variety shows? Kisuhama learning and Kisumai Busaiku? do you think the last one will be a regular show?
I can proudly say as a Kis-My-Ft2 fan that I have watched and enjoy both shows. One more than the other though.
While Kisuhama Learning can be rather hit or miss with their challenges, but overall I like it and I think it really helps everyone in the group as the s-My-2 grouping get chances to shine or fail enough that they get extra attention. Also Tamamori Yuta may not be the greatest singer or dancer but he is proving to be strong in the world of variety shows so it is nice to see him excel in something to help justify his position as center if just a little.
Kisumai Busaiku was complete genius. I cannot remember the last time I laughed so much watching a variety program and it was great to see the guys enjoy themselves so much as well. While I would love to see it become a regular show I would worry about being able to keep up the quality of the show if they did. But if they made it an annual program and did a couple of episodes a year I would love it.
I think they are both good shows and if Michi is pushing them to become one of the top groups of the agency the way to go. Variety programs play a good part in making a group massively popular, which can be seen with SMAP, Arashi and Kanjani8 having strong variety presence that came hand in hand with their ascents in popularity. Of course the fact that the programs were/are good is vital as well as the groups being the main focus of them unlike Hey! Say! JUMP's programs typically have been.
