When I said they're cute, I meant their appearance AND music.

I expected someone to think I was just referring to their looks. But Yabu Kota is hot.

I have three friends who are crazy about Hey! Say! JUMP. Out of all of them, I like Ryutaro and Yuri the most. Have you seen their Christmas Carol? So kawaii!

Isn't that the point of boy bands? Using their looks to rake in cash, I mean.

The recording company of Hey! Say! JUMP, JOHNNY'S Entertainment, that's all they do. All their bands are super cute/hot. They manage NewS, Arashi, and Johnny's Junior, Super Junior, etc.

Boy bands have always been the same - get cute guys, write the same old stuff again and again with a different melody, rake in fangirls' parents' cash. It's genius, really. It's not bad music or good music - it's the absence of musical integrity.

When it comes to the greatest bands in history (and not just the ones that I like), their appearance is meaningless - their voices, sounds, and creativity are the only thing that matter.
Unfortunately, that is the truth. I see too much of that terrible sh*t myself. Sometimes they don't even do a good job with the "cute guys" part. Double fail right there. Two fails don't equal a win either.

Yeah, it's not about the look, it's everything to do with substance. Although X Japan pulls off both very well and is undoubtedly a legend. Obviously there are a few exceptions.

I don't really have a special feeling against them,but I think they would be better without that girlvoice in their songs... Somehow her voice annoyes me! But I gotta say I like their songs Ultra Music power and Mayonaka no Shadow Boy XD


I'd rather be the river,always flowing foward,than the ocean,always turning back...
