Akanishi Troop gets in trouble with the police for stealing a cellphone in Roppongi

16 Jul

The Akanishi Troop, consisting of Akanishi Jin(30), Yamashita Tomohisa(29), Nishikido Ryo(29) and friends, have been involved in an incident with the police. Last month, they got into trouble with a group of 5 or 6 in Roppongi and were accused of stealing a cellphone.

“Nishikido hangs out frequently with the group, and he is known for being a bad drinker who forgets what happens after a night of drinking. People have seen him forcing his way into cabs. Yamashita also plays with them frequently. The Akanishi Troop usually goes clubbing to hit on foreign ladies.”

The Akanishi Troop was thought to have disbanded due to Akanishi’s marriage to actress Kuroki Meisa(26) in 2012, and the birth of their daughter in the same year. Recently though, the group seems to have revived their activities.

“Last month, this group of 5 or 6 people discovered the Akanishi Troop in the streets of Roppongi and called out to them. They were not fans of Johnny’s. I guess Akanishi and friends weren’t amused by that. It ended in a scuffle,” a person familiar with the incident said. Scuffles are not uncommon in Roppongi where nightlife is rampant.

“One of the girls in the group was recording the scene on her cellphone. Noticing that, the Akanishi Troop took her phone and ran away with it,” he continued.

The girl reported this case to the police the next day.

“Fans of Akanishi Troop have also reported about being treated coldly. I know of one who met Akanishi in the streets. She wanted to take a picture but was threatened by his outburst of ‘Hey what are you filming!’ ” said someone from the entertainment circle.

However, the incident this time is not a case of Johnny’s talents versus stalker fans. There is information that mediation is ongoing to prevent this from developing into a criminal case.


Why am i not surprised anymore?

Yamapi unable to save Fuji TV from streak of “Getsu 9” low ratings

18 Sep

Yamashita Tomohisa’s latest drama “Summer Nude” ended its run of 11 episodes yesterday with a final viewership of 11.9% in the Kanto region.

The much anticipated drama boasting all-star casts like Toda Erika, Karina and Nagasawa Masami had started off on a good note with 17.4% in viewership. However, it dropped to 12% after the 1st episode and pretty much maintained until the last episode.

According to personnel related to FujiTV, in the late 90s, their Getsu 9 slot (Monday 9pm) had so much viewership that its value was likened to a plot of land right in the center of Tokyo’s upscale Ginza district.  “Everyone looked up to it. If it was a product, it would definitely be priced high.”

However, the Fuji TV now is in a terrible position, being 4th in position and being crushed by rivals like TBS. A personnel related to Nihon TV said “Getsu 9? They’re like the shops in the suburbs.”

Seems like even Yamapi can’t stop this streak of losses for Fuji. How much longer will this situation drag on for?


Did you guys watch this drama? I slept through the first few episodes and was going to quit it entirely. But the storyline for the side characters (Toda Erika) was interesting so that’s the only reason i pushed through.
