And we hit the last fully new episode of the year for 2006, but are still an episode away from wrapping the year up.
We get another introduction to the Juniors with them all singing the song Beautiful. Only thing I feel worth noting is that the growing separation between J.J.Express and Nakajima Yuto's grouping of Juniors continues as they are introduced separately without having the other group hovering around them.
The game segment was definitely one of the main highlights of the episode. You could tell the guys were having fun and the unexpected elements that it had in it kept it fun to watch as a viewer. And everything else was as solid as usual.
Next episode is the final for 2006, which is mainly a recap episode. Then we are on 2007 episodes and coming up on a new season. Personally I am pretty excited for that as 2007 will be Hey! Say! JUMP's debut and the episodes I started with when I first began to watch the program. Of course with it being so many years ago very little is well remembered but should still hold some familiarity with them. But it will still be great to finally hit that point with the show.
