Konnan Yatte Mimashita ~  
I fell asleep at 8pm!! Thank god I managed to wake up on time for the reports at midnight! XDD

Humans are made to be different so if you do not agree to my opinions, Im sorry about that.

#1 Shige was so moved by his fans~

Reading it in Japanese has a different feel to it! My friend's report was not a detailed one but I can feel her emotion.

L's comment after reading the report, "Even though I didn't see suddenly I feel full of pride."

Shige's fans are amazing!

My friend's report stated that Shige needs to improve on his stage skills etc etc but the fact that he tried something different from a normal Johnnys' style, he deserves to be applauded. This stageplay of his really conveyed his literary talent very well and she is very proud of him, hoping many non-Johhnys' fan to see this extraordinary talent of a Johnnys' boy.

I shall not translate everything as the one over at news_jpop is more detailed. But this deserves to be mention:

What happened was, when everyone was seated, a paper was being passed from seat to seat.


Translation: Shige's birthday was on the 11th of July. After the first curtain call, won't you guys sing a birthday song for Shige?

So exactly after the first curtain call, a female voice was heard, 「せーのっ!」, giving the cue, and the whole hall started singing

[Happy Birthday to You~ Happy Birthday to You~
Happy Birthday to Shige~~ Happy Birthday to You~]

The crowd was amazingly in sync.

Shige looked very surprised/moved and became teary-eyed. It showed on his face that he tried hard not to shed a tear.
(fyi, my friend was at the first row, so everything was very clear to her)

In the Japanese fandom, Shige doesnt have as many fans as other NEWS members. But what his fans did was really impressive! ♥
I am very sure Shige was totally not expecting that.

#2 Blonde Shige:

Im surprisingly not as surprised. Expected worse and having been a Johnnys fan, I have seen worse attempts. I believe that this hair won't last as long as his black mohawk (^_~)
Trust me! (lol what?)

Still~ the comments over at news_jpop....makes me laughs. Some are true though, like the "Ruka-look-alike" & "Grinch" part, I can so see the resemblance XDDD

But to diss Shige just because he looks like that now is (= =;)
yappari~ It was his looks that got his fans attention. If you go for his looks, then sad to say, you will be disappointed. Shige is one of those Johnnys who dare to try new things, especially experimenting with his hair. I'm waiting for the day he decided to go bald. Either that or keep his hair long, beyond shoulders' length XD He has been wanting to challenge himself on either those hairstyles.

Maa everyone has their own opinions~ but we have to make do with the blonde for now XP

aahhh..i wish i was there too~~
shige goes blonde?don't really like it,but still supporting him the smart guy!!

w_ryokuw_ryoku on July 15th, 2008 07:19 am (UTC)
We all wish for that~
Yes yes...you dont have to like it to support him. Maa~ we all have no choice anyway XD
tinuviel228tinuviel228 on July 14th, 2008 09:16 pm (UTC)
Wow that sounded really amazing! Seeing how Shige has improved over these last few years make me feel so proud of him too!
and that must have been an really incredible fan who passed that paper around :)
w_ryokuw_ryoku on July 15th, 2008 07:20 am (UTC)
That fan is made of awesome! <3
Jisatsupinkujisatsu on July 14th, 2008 10:05 pm (UTC)
after a few, I stopped reading the comments over news_jpop.

I don't get some fans. Even if you don't like a hair...

I wonder how I would manage to be a shun fangirl if his hair would affect me that much to 'neglect' him... xDDDDDDD (or even worst, if his outfits affected me XDDD)

I think what that fan (and the rest of the fans) did was great, no wonder he was touched ^__^

in his jweb from the 13 wagahai still talks about shige bday, so no butai yet :/
w_ryokuw_ryoku on July 15th, 2008 07:24 am (UTC)

I was touched when I read the report haha~ Would want to see his surprised face while they were singing <3
yeah~ he has not mention about the members msg for his birthday too!! (>_<)
I dont think he updated his jweb yesterday.
Quinnquinnsan on July 14th, 2008 10:36 pm (UTC)
I was touched how they sang Happy Birthday to him, and if I could have gone I totally would have been there singing with them, because I totally love Shige, and admittedly while he's not my very favorite member, I love him anyways because he's just so adorable~
w_ryokuw_ryoku on July 15th, 2008 07:29 am (UTC)
Yeah~ Just reading it makes me feel touched~ I will sing a long too if Im there ^^
Pardon my ignorance but who is your favourite member? =D

That must be a very touching moment for him ^^

Ma ma, I think its a good thing he change his hairstyle, experimenting so people won't feel bored to see him ^^ Can't expect to satisfied all peoples, I bet even he has different kind hair, there's ppl who will complaining as well ^^
w_ryokuw_ryoku on July 15th, 2008 07:31 am (UTC)
Sou desu ne~
Frankly speaking, I have been wanting him to change! BUT not to being blonde LOL. Oh well~ Im pretty sure he wont let the blonde lasts..
I bet even he has different kind hair, there's ppl who will complaining as well ^^
Very true ;)
trails of glitter, not comments (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧: pi chujojibear on July 14th, 2008 11:35 pm (UTC)
CONSIDERING OTHER JE BOYS WHO WENT BLONDE, I don't think blonde Shige was that bad at all. I mean, compared to Uebo (I love him BUT NO.) and Ryotan (oh gee) when they had their blonde moments, Shige doesn't look half as bad. The best bit is, because he's so experimental, he can just about pull anything off 8D But I want long-hair Shige back~ Long hair Shige was awesome - WITH THE HIGHLIGHTS. 8D

And aaaaaaw, bless them! I wish I was there~ I would have loved to see a teary-eyed Shige~ <3 Shige has improved a lot in these past few years though and seeing him improve, watching him grow better, has been such an amazing "experience" of sorts.

w_ryokuw_ryoku on July 15th, 2008 07:42 am (UTC)
Haha~ yeah. It wasnt 'hazardous' XDD
You know what, the streak hair is one at the last few bottom in my "Shige-hair ranking" but I dont dislike it either LOL.
I kinda want his old hair back~ 2005-2006 period =D

Shige deserves this chance. Im glad his fans make use of this chance as well! *salutes them*
ryogrande on July 14th, 2008 11:55 pm (UTC)
i don't know you, but this post made me so happy and i wanted to tell you that.

one of the reasons shige (and nakamaru from kt) is my favorite is because he's so real, a human compared to a sexpot or a pretty shell of a man (not naming any names here, but yeah). the fact that he was moved by something like that just makes me smile so hard and be proud to be his fan.

also, i love shige's blond hair, and i'm not ashamed.

thank you for sharing this with the shige community. i wouldn't have seen it otherwise. <3
w_ryokuw_ryoku on July 15th, 2008 08:09 am (UTC)
Im glad that it made you happy!
Haha~ I totally understand coz I like Maru best too =D

You are welcome. I only share this with shigesuki because I thought that Shige's fans will be more interested in the random bits as the detailed one is already posted at news_jpop ^^
theahhmoment: shigebluetheahhmoment on July 15th, 2008 12:14 am (UTC)
Thanks so much for sharing! That's so awesome what those fans have done! ^________^ I wish I was there to sing the song to him as well!
w_ryokuw_ryoku on July 15th, 2008 08:12 am (UTC)
Welcome! Yes, the fans are amazing~ so united & sporting despite it being a last minute thing.

Ah..btw do you happen to know the status of the Shige fanbook project? (^^;)
Thank you for your hardwork then!

Aria: pipitomamklia on July 15th, 2008 12:35 am (UTC)
i agree that Shige's fans in LJ are the best :D

blond Shige is not that bad after all. He look great :D We just need to accept it u know just like we can accept Pi's curls... :D

I love reading the fans comments as well. and reading this from u, just makes me feel proud and happy to be a fan as well. :D
w_ryokuw_ryoku on July 15th, 2008 08:14 am (UTC)
Yes Pi's curls. I find him cute with that hair XD Let us give Shige some time to work his way round with that hair. I doubt it will last long..
Im glad I can help in any way to spread the shige-ai around v(^_^)v
vtsoccagrlvtsoccagrl on July 15th, 2008 12:45 am (UTC)
I love how he was so touched by his fans. That one fan who started the 'happy birthday' thing is really admirable. As for his hair, I dont' really like it. It's not' blonde Shige' that I don't like, it's the blond I don't like. He should've picked a warmer blonde to work with because that shade doesn't go well with his skin tone. I love it when JEs change their hair. Even if some of the styles make me go =_=, I like the fact that they're bold enough to try something new.

Shige and Pi are the only ones in NEWS who consistently change their hair style (Pi on a more regularly ie monthly basis lol) and I like that. Ryo needs to change his too, he has the same hair in all in dramas. BUT i <3 Ryo in dark hair haha. Just like I love all NEWS members in dark hair.

I don't think people are dissing Shige. They're not just liking the hair too much. I mean, Pi recieved MUCH MORE negative comments on his curly hair lol. I want to see Shige's butai sooo bad. I wish someone can fancam it for me lol.

Thank you for the report, so much <3
w_ryokuw_ryoku on July 15th, 2008 08:24 am (UTC)
She is an amazing fan for having such a initiative. Haha~ I understand. I did tell my friends that a better tone will look better because of his skin color but other than that Im cool with it. He needs to trim a bit though. Its getting too long for a mohawk ^^
Pi ~ I have no complains about his hair either XD

Regarding the comments, those who have yet to come to terms with it, just give them time ne~
Just that I saw really bad comments as if Shige made the biggest sin and deserve to be isolated for dyeing his hair as such LOL. Fangirls are amusing <3

FANCAM! Or better still, DVD with Tegoraji & Machimasu!! <333

You are welcome!
::Fairy:: I want to be your sound~ ♥fairy_illusions on July 15th, 2008 01:10 am (UTC)
I feel my shige-ai senses just skyrocketing. Teary-eyed!Shige + blonde!Shige + goodstageperformer!Shige = &hearts melting~

I hope everything continues to go well for him! I saw him blonde in a picture and he doesn't look bad (but Shige can make weird faces quite easily so I can see why he might look like the Grinch haha)

Thank you for the tidbit!
w_ryokuw_ryoku on July 15th, 2008 08:27 am (UTC)
Skyrocketing is THE word! YES!
I hope his senpais will go and see his play too, would love to her views from others than the members.
TRUE! His facial expression is ROLFMAO but loved! *bias*

You are welcome!
••°¤*(¯`°☆• kRiS •☆°´¯)*¤°••: Shige smilekris_kt on July 15th, 2008 01:27 am (UTC)
that was really cute ~~ I dunno but his hair makes him look I dunno more fuN? also I don't know why but when I saw him I thought anime character~! xDD I think it makes him cute but well that's me and my preferences ♥

why why I don't live in Japan ;___; also I feel proud and I don't even know why~~~ XDDDD
I love him that's the reason I guess ^-^
the girl who started the birthday thing ~ awesome!!
w_ryokuw_ryoku on July 15th, 2008 08:30 am (UTC)
Everyone has their own interpretation n I like your interpretation of it as FUN LOL.

She is! And so does everyone else who participated to make it work!
roughmetal2roughmetal2 on July 15th, 2008 01:31 am (UTC)
i wish i'm in japan too so that i can watch shige and give him support XD.

re his hair, i don't really care what he does with it. i know i'm biased but i always like the way he looks since he has a beautiful face to begin with XD. besides, i already got past the looks department coz shige's talents, especially his literary skills, are so awesome XD.
w_ryokuw_ryoku on July 15th, 2008 08:36 am (UTC)
I have past the looks department too XDDD
We all wish him from afar!
eternal7beternal7b on July 15th, 2008 01:49 am (UTC)

thanks for posting this
w_ryokuw_ryoku on July 15th, 2008 08:38 am (UTC)
Im glad I manage to put across such a mood (^^;)
ryoko: shige_02masuda_takahits on July 15th, 2008 02:04 am (UTC)
sad to say, you will be disappointed
What is disappointing is, he is naturally looking good, but his unnecessary challenge makes him worse and his bad habit swells his face.
He should do it after he becomes enough super popular like Tsuyoshi as Endli, so that even if he will loss lots of fans still there will be enough fans and power!
w_ryokuw_ryoku on July 15th, 2008 07:06 am (UTC)
maa~ Challenges are always necessary as it takes guts for anyone to take it up. And I like it when people take up challenges because they are never easy. Like you said, he may lose his fans but what is a challenge when all he does is gain?
While I still can, Im willing to sit by and see how far he will/can go~ ^^

He should do it after he becomes enough super popular like Tsuyoshi as Endli
LMAO. He will need years in order to achieve something that Tusyoshi has achieved! But in order to achieve that something must be done. And if he & the Jimusho think that the rate he is going at is acceptable and is the best for him, then so be it. As fans, we can only sit & watch ne~
Im very sure the Jimusho won't allow him to do anything that will ruin both him and NEWS name.
For me, so long he does not forget his roots; parents, friends, members and lastly fans, Im content.
That was why I feel like I should highlight the fans singing birthday song for him and he was moved to tears because deep inside, he knew that after all, he is striving for the sake of his fans (^_^)

(Btw I hope Massu had received our gift ^^)
☆☆☆neocopasetic on July 15th, 2008 05:33 am (UTC)
Awww... that made me get teary, a little. Everyday I feel pride as a Shige fan, and this makes me feel even more pride, that his ans are so kind! ^^ Good people!

As for his hair... I like it! I agree that the fans who like him because he's handsome are really annoying! Just because of something as trivial as HAIR COLOR, some fan will be so mean!
w_ryokuw_ryoku on July 15th, 2008 08:40 am (UTC)
Im glad I manage to get you teary (^^;) Coz i was very touched when I read that part.

Maa~ fans are....amusing. But Im sure many will get over it soon ^^
stereocodestereocode on July 15th, 2008 12:32 pm (UTC)
its true that shige do not have as many fans as other NEWS member.
i bet he's damn touch..
the fans did great!! to be there at the stage show is great! :DD
wow. i can imagine the situation. awesome!
about blondy shige.. i had no comment,
bt i don't dislike it. i'm also sure that his black mohawck hair will be back soon.. just wait. hahhaha
w_ryokuw_ryoku on July 16th, 2008 05:39 am (UTC)
Shige is really not very popular in Japan (^^;)

haha~ I dont really mind if the mohawk does not come back bcoz I want another hairstyle as a whole XDDD
But the blonde wont stay for long ;)
Elienshinigamielien on July 15th, 2008 01:28 pm (UTC)
Thank you for sharing these few but precious informations ^_^
I´m proud to be fan of Shige as I´m proud to be fan of Taguchi. They are both somewhat different drom the other JE boys. May it be Shige´s inteligence or Junno´s all-the-time jokes I love them for that. They are not afraid to be different even if that means that the others will tease them. Saw Shiges new hair in morning news video @news LJ community and I like it. It´s crazy and I like crazy things XD
w_ryokuw_ryoku on July 16th, 2008 05:41 am (UTC)
Yeah..Ive always prefer the underdogs ^^v
hayarinhayarin on July 15th, 2008 03:20 pm (UTC)
Don't say Shige doesnt have as many fans as other NEWS member. Add me one.
He is very very Sugoi and smart and a good friend of Koya.

(Though Tego is my most Fav.)
w_ryokuw_ryoku on July 16th, 2008 05:42 am (UTC)
haha~ It is a fact yo (^^;)
But Im proud to be in the minority of fans =D

Cute mumble!
Reira: Shige Peacecurrynana on July 15th, 2008 04:26 pm (UTC)
awww, omg, thts so sweeet of his fans. I can practically just tear up at reading that effort made to have everyone there sing a bday song for him.

Hahaha, i din really read the comments...i mean, i dont think its tht baaad. Besides Shige is SHige, even if i prefer him with black hair~ ^^
w_ryokuw_ryoku on July 16th, 2008 05:44 am (UTC)
Indeed I was very touched when I read her report ^^;
The second show, Shige was given a standing ovation by the audience =D
I dont think that it is super good either LOL.
Vitsonehotmess on July 15th, 2008 06:16 pm (UTC)
Aww, that's so adorable! The fans and Shige's reaction and just, oh, so cute.

And I know there are a lot of mixed feelings about the hair, but I think most of us still love Shige, even with the blonde. I think it would've been better if it were a different shade, but it's not completely horrendous, which is really what I was afraid of when I first heard about it.
w_ryokuw_ryoku on July 16th, 2008 05:46 am (UTC)
Agreed! (^_^)v
MsBibblesmsbibbles on July 15th, 2008 09:25 pm (UTC)
Aww, thanks for the post!

Firstly, I would so like to see Shige's butai. I hope the audience applauded really hard after it ended!
And the fact that they started to sing.. lolz, it reminds me how we at school sometimes sang to our favorite teachers. They were teary-eyed too ^-^.

And blond Shige looks normal. Darker hair did look better on him but I was kind of hoping for... blond Shige. That was milk-caramel. xD I want blond like Miura had in Koizora, like Hero had in the old days. Like this silver blond. I would just like to know how that color suits him. Somehow I think it would look good... And that sure would be interesting to watch.
But yeah. I actually got mad when I read the comments on news_jpop. Because Shige is not the JE boy who is only cool because of his looks. He has so much more to him. His butai is the proof. ^^
(Oh god, this comment is looong :P)
w_ryokuw_ryoku on July 16th, 2008 05:49 am (UTC)
He was given a standing ovation at the end of the 2nd show =D
Yes~ That image of singing during school days <3
I think Shige will look just as good with Miura or Hero's hair..Really. Coz it suits his skin. Even then Hero is damn fair but it suits him LOL.

Maa~ everyone does have their own opiinions but it makes me squirm when fans go for looks LOL

Long comments are loved, dont you know? XD

i didn't read the detailed report because i didn't want to spoil myself... but singing happy birthday for him... aww it's so nice ;-; we all would have sung along if we had been there ne...
i didn't read those bad comments about the hair but hmm a real fan is not all about looks na~
i'm really looking forward to see that hair in real (if he'll still have it in osaka XD) because...i don't wanna look at those tv clips... aww though i want to... |D;;
w_ryokuw_ryoku on July 16th, 2008 05:53 am (UTC)
Im glad you didnt read the detailed report but you read this anyway =D
I know~ I felt touched by just reading the comments! Can't imagine if I was really there.
Oh please share your views! (if the blonde remains XD)

I have seen his pamphlet & the cover of the photoalbum. God! He just kills me each time~ Looking forward to your trip in..3 wks time? ^^
