so I think I'm starting to become a fan of Kanjani, but I have only heard Life and watched clips of their shows on youtube. Can someone suggest me where I should start? shows I should watch? etc. Thanks in advance for the help!
Hi!!! And welcome!!!
I'm sorry for the late reply, I've been away. For TV shows, the current Janiben is very entertaining (although you need Japanese to really appreciate it). I also love Shiwake (haha, this is so what I was waiting for when Kanpani ended). For old shows, Kanpani is a winner (nothing better than watching them fail episode after episode) and Canjani is also a lot of fun.
For songs, given you said you listened to LIFE, maybe you'll like band songs more? My suggestions for band songs:
Rolling Coaster (find a live version, so much better than the studio version although that's good too)
Minus 100do no Koi (okay, they didn't play this as a band but they SHOULD HAVE!!)
Do you agree? (no CD release but there are tons of live rips)
DIVE (again, no CD release but I love this song)
Tabi no hate ni wa
Suki yanen, Osaka
Kyuu Jou Show!!
Giga maji mega fight
Zukkoke Otoko michi
It's my soul
Good pop songs:
Heavenly Psycho (a fan favorite, highly recommended)
Mermaid (no CD release)
fuka fuka Love the earth
Ukiyo Odori bito
Hitotsu no Uta
Eden (probably my favorite ballad of theirs)
I may have missed some songs in there but I think this is a good list to start with. My favorite album of theirs is PUZZLE so if you want to just start with an album, that's a good one.
Haha, I love how they all gang up on each other. They made fun of Subaru for being bad at games at like multiple shows, lol.
My home was wonderful on MS last night
It was like Ryo BAND or something
Subaru and Maru were a lot of fun to watch during the VTR parts because they were singing along and stuff (Maru was so great when Arashi's A.Ra.Shi came on, lol). Ryo seemed kind of out of it to me. And Shota's hair looks AWFUL (like, I was laughing because it looked so bad). What was he thinking when he got his hair cut like that???
