Johnnys Net has officially announced that this April that Hey! Say! JUMP members Yaotome Hikaru's and Yabu Kota's show YY JUMPing will be replaced with a new show called Yan Yan JUMP. Yan Yan JUMP is said to be a show featuring Hey! Say! JUMP and Johnny's Junior.
Now, even thought the commercial says it's going to feature Hey! Say! JUMP and Johnny's Junior doesn't mean it's going to feature all of them. Obviously they can't feature all of Johnny's Junior, there are just too many of them. I suppose they could shuffle the Juniors every week, but I doubt they would do that because that would be a lot of extra work and effort. And besides, School Kakumei and YY JUMPing pretty much use the same Juniors ever week. But what's really important is if they are going to have all 10 HSJ members or not. A couple of weeks back Yabu mentioned that he wanted to have a show with all 10 Hey! Say! JUMP members. So, was his comment actually giving fans a hint of what to expect? I actually kind of doubt it, but I really want it to be true. I'm tired of only about 7 members of HSJ being on TV shows, while the other 3 do nothing. And I'm even more tired of those TV shows not being just one TV show. Even if the members get shuffled every week, I would love for their to be a show that is for all 10 of Hey! Say! JUMP.
However, watching the commercial makes me doubt that's actually going to happen.
The commerical shows Hikaru, Daiki, and two ABC-Z members.
Which makes me think that Yan Yan JUMP is going to be exactly like YY JUMPing. But instead of Hikaru and Yabu, it's Hikaru and Daiki. Which is completely unfair, if that turns out to be what Yan Yan JUMP is like. If we were going for fair Yan Yan JUMP should consist of Yabu, Ryutaro, Keito, and Inoo. Hikaru, Chinen, and Ryosuke have School Kakumei and come April Takaki, Yuto, and Daiki will have Shounen Club. Technically Shounen Club is supposed to be Hey! Say! JUMP as hosts, but it's totally only going to be those 3. And some could argue that Shounen Club doesn't count as they are only MCing and it's not a variety show. But, whatever.
Come April JUMP fans are either going to be really happy or really dissapointed.
