And I am finally at the last pre-Hey! Say! JUMP episode. Though you would not think there was something major on the way from the episode.
This was a good episode that balanced nicely with the previous episode for the month. We did get more from the Juniors this time around and with Tackey's project wrapping up we should go back to having more of them shown in the regular episodes again, which will be needed as Hey! Say! JUMP are going to be a big part of the show for a while after their debut as newly debuted group will be in general from then on out.
There was a good sense that the Hey! Say! 7 group though was being set up to go on for bigger things eventually, and that came much sooner than I would have guessed at the time. Looking back after going over signs for who tends to debut with the FIVB groups I would have placed them on a short list for debut, with the younger three members being the best candidates.
