SMAP_BANGUMI@livejournal will continue to remain as a community
in recollecting
all the fun, laughters and tears that SMAP brought us
for over a quarter of a century.

After last night Smastation ended, SMAP fans were given the ultimatum that SMAP has prepared us for.

The 5 of them, in their own ways have used last year's 27 Hour TV to prepare us.
The drama,
The 40+ minutes of on-stop live despite 20+ hours of non-stop filming
Since one year ago, to preapare us for this day to come.
Kimura said SMAP will not disband without firstly putting effort .
Which all of you did, so much so in preparing fans for it since such a long time ago.

We also heard from their company.
They prepared us with two news.
FIrst was the news that greeted us last night.
It was announced through fax,
When Nakai is still in the midst of his Olympic work
When Kimura is in Hawaiii
When Shingo is still filming his Smastation.

The second was the "rumour of disbandment" , that came some days before Shingo's birthday this year,
remember how the news surfaced?
Hint: Who gave the news to the media?

But there is no point discussing all these now.
The disband news is finalised.
I do wonder what they will be doing till the end of the year.

I think they will lie low, with no activities.
It's their style, right?

Most likely, we will see their recorded shows on TV
Shuffle bistro Nakai edition.
SmaLoves of Kimura and Nakai
3D-printing figurine making with the 5 of them
Escape game with the 5 of them
And so many other things.
All these episodes,
they were filmed but not shown on air so far.

Just like to say,
SMAP has already created a legend.
A legend remains in people's hearts though it may not exist physically.

For men of their age, this career direction is healthy.
At the point of their age and career,
it's time to slow down the pace
and live a life of their own.
A real life of their own, if they are REALLY on their own.
Be it a
surfer and a dad
film/wine critic
actor/ enthusiastic guitar player or maybe exercise trainer
dessert patisseur /artist /fashion critic /host

For now, they exist as individual Jonhhy's artistes.

Sad that we can no longer hear the five of their voices together,
we can no longer see all 6 of them together.

However, their bond is strongly connected, such that they do not need to be as a group to be connected.
This segment is so good, shows smap doing non-idol things in idol mode.

But so far only Tsuyoshi doing this segment..
We should have a segment for each member so that we can see them topless .

Nah, depends on the challenge right, and depends on who is doing the challenge.
Though I got a feeling that this kind of bangumi pace is going towards something bad....

This challenge (part 1)  features Tsuyoshi, with a very nice gymnast body, with chest muscles spanning quite a big area
(Chotto iro-poi, but it is true! (But being S, I wouldn't post the nice body pic in this post haha!
Hint: The pic featured in their smapxsmap segment in a weekly mag features that nice body pic )

Anyways, he challenge 1) 50m dive and 2) blocking a goal shoot from the famous Nadeshiko player Homare Sawa.

[read more]

Q: Do you have confidence?
A: Excess confidence.I used to attend swimming school, so (challenge) is something I am familiar with.

Lady who won at Olympics: I am surpurised by your condifence

Tsu: Is it that difficult for non-trained people to dive at 50m?

Ex-swimmer lady: Diving to a certain depth can already cause some numbness in the hands, much less to an untrained person like Kusangi. I was analysing Kusangi-san swimming and could see there are some parts he was struggling with it.

Tsu: The water..
MC: STOP! You almost gave out hints!
(Tsuyoshi, how many years have u been doing variety show, you still so careless about the variety flow xD )

Shingo: While everyone is busy analysing, I don't even to think about it and I can get the answer.

Shingo: For things that require long period of time to learn, he is really determined.
For things that require short term hard-work, he is not good at it.

Shingo: The rate he gives up is really early.

*update:20/6: in yesterday's Baby SMA, the unaired parts of this episode, the MC asked how Tsu felt about Shingo's "negative" comments despite him being Tsu's good friend.
Tsu said "I'm perfectly alright !"
Haha! This is ShinTsuyo for you!

The OA version, Tsuyoshi tried 2 times  (he probably tried more?)
Omy, that swimstyle was so sleek, beautiful! Even those professional swimmers also praised his techniques.
He was able to dive 41m!
Please watch the vid if you can, that swimming is great !

[read more]
Now for the next challenge, blocking a goal shoot from renowned Nadeshiko player Homare Sawa

One of the sendai goalkeeper was Tsu's coach

Goalkeeper: Do you understand?
Tsu: No
Goalkeeper: How can you not understand

Tsu eventually understood and asked his coach whether it is to observe the shooter's waist and not legs. The goalkeeper said yes!

Shingo: He's that kind with first few tries he cannot make it, but subsequently he is able to. He has rapid "growing" speed

Q: Are you confident?
A: No problem!

Q: But this time she is Homare Sawa, world renowned, gotten best MVP in world platform

She's married now so she probably has lesser time for practice
(the sad reality of women in japan, had to exit from the job field once married)

At first attempt, Sawa managed to shoot into goal post. But at second attempt,

Tsu: I created an unseen pressure on Sawa
Sawa: Eh, I did not see that pressure at all~

MC: it is just like what Shingo said !

Tsu: You really know me !
Shingo: *smile*
Hmm I remembered posting this review in detail but can't seem to find the post...

I post a short review on this episode okay? You got to watch it yourself. This episode is definetly a keep! Love how the way they are unrestrained and took pains to keep Goro from knowing that they bought him the present he wanted.

It started off with after filming smapxsmap.

[read more]Goro reminded them that he got the wand because he won in a race.

He then reminded them about the use of this wand and request members to turn in circle after he says his command

Goro took out his wishing wand and commanded the rest to buy the best wine for him.
Members turn around after Goro said his command.

Next scene was SMAP in Paris

[read more]Nakai and Tsuyoshi was made fun, because they looked so shock when they see the gate.

Goro said wow, you went to such a nice gate. I went to the gate at Asakusa

Then the scene went back to Paris and we see SMAP taking pictures of the place, and at each other

Lol the photo of Tsuyoshi doing Kamen rider >0<
When watching the video, look out for the scene where Tsuyoshi took photograph of the rest. He took their photo but not the scenary behind lol.

Then they went around shopping and eating.

And even tried to matchmake Goro with one of the female staff in a restaurant.
The 4 showed her these pictures

They featured a few bottles of wine, only to drink it off "in front" of Goro.

They claimed that they were testing the wine out for him.

Then they went to Eifeel tower.

Kimura covered Tsuyoshi's eyes from reading information from the guidebook. Tsu ended up rattling out the information.
They waited for something special to happen.

"i think it will become a robot"
"What if it became Tokyo tower?"

And then

Goro said they looked so innocent (like little boys)

Later the 4 spotted a Merry-go-round

Nakai was holding onto the pole with his dear life cos it was the first time he rode on a merry-go-round. He refused to let go off the pole.

Kimura said "Look over here Hiro-kun"

The classic 2-TOP moment.

Then the 4 shot a "PV" by lip-syncing Goro's song "Wonderful life" (the song he sang for Tsuyoshi's drama Boku to kanojo to kanojo no ikiru michi)
Look out for Shing's drawing of Goro in one of the scene. That will be Shingo's permanent drawing of Goro, even until now! >0<
The "PV" ended with this very movie-like close-up scene on the members.

(I displayed 2top's ><.. see how they look so alike?!)

[read more]
Goro said it was good that they enjoyed their trip to Paris
He asked about his wine. He asked if they bought it. (Prince Goro keep asking ><)
The rest answered Yes and brought out a wine bottle.

Goro said it smell nice.
Then he tasted it... and asked a question.

Members feigned ignorance xD

Have been watching Goro deluxe recently. Interesting show, just 20 minutes but learning so much. It recommends interesting books of different subjects.

Today's review is 篠田达明, a doctor who looks at historical figures from medical perspective. Many of his books are nominated for the Japan's literacy prices.
For history fans out there, this may be interesting for you.

In this episode, 篠田-san introduce his new book that talks about the height and weight of japanese historical figures.

His estimation for Oda Nobunaga's height and weight.
[Read more]
He calculate based on the person's length of sleeve.
Yukichi Fukuzawa, a Meiji era philosopher and the founder of Keio University.
One of the Tokugawa descendent

篠田-san said this Tokugawa descendent has brain numbness because of his stiff shoulders and pouting of the mouth.

Later in the show, they displayed a real life picture of the Tokugawa's descendent's skeletal remains, which indicates the presence of brain numbness.

And the life-sized figures of the famous japanese historical figures.

Saigō Takamori, one of the influential samurai has some problem with his "eggs" which swells as big as AD yamada's head.
Sensei estimated that Toyotomi Hideyoshi is shorter that his official potrait. He said that there was this western vistor who wrote that Toyotomi is only 5 inch (short as midget). Sensei thought it is not possible so he estimated Toyotomi's height to be the shortest of the normal people's height. 140m. As a influential figure, Toyotomi probably requested his painter to paint him taller.

Later they also talked about Tokugawa Ieyasu 's height. His height is quite certain because his alter tablet's height is the same as his height.

Next segment:
The interpretation of oil paintings. Both paintings contains nudity so press on the links if you are old enough to view the nudity scenes.

"The birth of venus"

Goro pointed out that Venus's facial expression looked gloomy and Sensei said Goro is really sharp in his observation.

He pointed out that the outward curve of the big toe can easily cause scorns(?) which can be painful. Therefore the Venus (model) have a gloomy expression.
Next is the painting Bathsheba at her bath.
Sensei said the shadows on the model's left breast is caused by breast cancer. It could really be cancer afterall because the model died very young.

Eh~ the information of the alter tablet indicates the historical figure's height is interesting ne~
Art and history lessons can be interesting if it is viewed in medical perspective. Imagine the gossips.

Hello, this month is the month of Christmas and I thought I share a bangumi related to it.
(Yes I know it's Goro's month too. I shared about him on our May and June's review this year, remember?)
I give sufficient attention to all Smap members
(my bias enjoy a little more attention.. *guilt face*)

Anyways, this bangumi is about

  • chatting, making merry, "fighting" and giving presents to Sanma on a bus

  • stopping to buy party stuff on a regular shopping street

  • bullying someone to go into the cold winter night to buy something quite "important"

  • eating ramen with a bunch of foreigners.

  • on-stage discussion on chossing types of girls

Since this bangumi is from so many years ago, you can see so many valuable pairing interactions and many dorky actions from all smap members.

[He likes me!]I think this is the year of introduction of the "Chiu Chiu Chiu" machine, the one that mutes the mic when secrets are being shared.

Nakai smacking Tsuyoshi's head because long after the Chiu Chiu machine was introduced, Tsuyoshi still does not understand the function of it. He spoke some secret before being stopped by Nakai.

Later Tsuyoshi remembered to use the Chiu Machine but spoke in hushed tone despite the mic being switched off.

Nakai thinks Tsuyoshi likes him xD

[Family outing]They decided to have a party on the bus. They stopped by a shopping street.
This segment of the show is where I thought they function like a family lol.

While passing by the florist, Nakai asked Goro "You like flowers right?"
And Goro, Nakai and Sanma went ito the florist.

Nakai mama keeps looking at his watch to hurry Sister Goro while Sanma papa pays for the flowers like a boss.

They stopped by a snack shop and baby Shingo starts eating, while showing big brother Kimura how happy he is to eat

Child Tsuyoshi looks at the menu, spoilt for choices while papa Sanma pays for the food

The shop gets crowded so some of them waits outside...

Then they reached a household item shop and big brother got so excited seeing something (not sure what it is though)

And baby Shingo continues eating as they walk the streets

Buying some Oden..

[Calling, eating and bullying]
On the bus they began to chat..
Goro and Kimura took turns to call other actresses.

Saw the anteena on the phone? =P

A mini pic-spam of Goro using the phone.
(This touch-the-nose action os Goro's way of showing nervousness)

He couldn't get through the line. He asked Sanma "Probably she changed her phone number?"
Sanma laughed and say "How would I know who you have called?"

SATA pairing

Notice what Shingo is doing?

STILL EATING.. non-stop since he started eating in the shopping street

They realised they forgot to buy lighter. They nominated someone with the thickest clothes to go out of the bus to buy it.

Kimura took some strawberry from the cake to give to Tsuyoshi as encouragement

Tsuyoshi asked where should he go, Nakai just briefly asked him to walk around.

Nakai asked the driver to drive off 199
Sanma felt so bad for Tsuyoshi for being alone in the cold.

When Tsu is back, they all laughed at how pale his face is

He unzipped his jacket. He hid the lighter inside his jacket!
[Presents for Sanma + stage activities]

Present time for Sanma.
Goro gave Sanma a charcoal grill. He said it is something special as compared to the electric ones
Sanma said "Isn't that for me? Can you let your hands go now?"

Shingo gave a painting that he bought near Tsuyoshi's home.

Sanma said Shingo doesn't even know what it is. He also said Shingo has some weird taste! heia_thumb

Tsuyoshi gave an electric tooth brush, and wanted to demonstrate how it work. He took a bottle of water...
the members supported his standing because its on a moving bus.

But still it splashed on Sanma. (or was it someone who pushed him?!)

Attempt 2.

Oh no!

(Kimura playing along)

Shingo distracts

Kimura then stopped joking and asked for towel

Tsu got smacked and Goro took Tsu back to his seat

Shingo remains to do silly things in front of the cam.
(Not distraction but rather keep walking in and out of the camera lol)
Then Nakai come and tell him to stop fooling around because it is a bus

Kimura gave Sanma something secretive in the envelope

Goro laughed too when he saw the contents

The two younger ones didn't see the content.

For Nakai, he gave this to Sanma

As someone who always thinks of adding value to variety show, Nakai prepared the mask for everyone.

Look at how Nakai cheered on everyone to do a Sanma action. (2TOP version)

And asking the youngest two to do this

All this while Nakai didn't put on the mask no title

Then they reached Fuji Tv for stage activities
(wasn't as interesting as previous segments so I just capped few screencaps)

They continued the dial-a-call segment

Tsu called Kimura Yoshino (now their Big senapi Higashiyama Noriyuki's wife)
The show continued with them selecting different types of women.
(The Kimono style, The OL with a wide cleavage, Tomb raider style, etc).

Ending the review with weird Shingo angle.
