It's not a major role though. A supporting cast, in the drama Haha ni Naru (Becoming a mother) starring Sawajiri Erika, Itutani Yuki and Eiko Koike.
But any appearance is better than none, no?! :D

The new drama is about 3 mothers whose kidnapped children returned aftter 9 years and will depict their struggles with becoming a mother.

Drama will be airing in April, in NTV, every Wednesday from 10pm.

Hi guys... to be honest I wasn't sure if I should share this or not.
But after all, Ryutaro is a former member and he shared his thoughts about the scandal and HSJ.
I honestly think all HSJ fans should read it.
I did not translate the article, but am only sharing the link to the interview.

A short excerpt of the interview:
"I was the youngest. People who worked with me, they were all older than me, so there’s a feeling that I always became the youngest. At that time I was loved/spoiled by them, but if I think about it right now, I should’ve paid more attention (to them), something like that, because at that time I went just like that so only regret came to me [now]."

Edit: For everyone looking to support him and his future endeavours with Zero, their first mini album, 'Answer', will be released on June 23rd, 2017.
Also, in case you are not aware, Ryutaro has his own official social media accounts. He personally posts pictures/videos on them. You can follow updates on him and his new group below:

I’m actually surprised that no one shared a decent scans of this (maybe there are some but I didn’t take notice of it) and I just got my copy recently even though I ordered it last year when it was still in pre-order.

Hey! Say! JUMP topped the Oricon Weekly Charts with Over The Top, recording their best first week single sales ever with 271,945 copies!
Their previous best first week single sales is Maji Sunshine, with 266,777 copies.

Translation from Oricon news:
Popular group, Hey! Say! JUMP's 19th single (Over The Top - released February 22nd) sold over 270,000 copies in the first week and landed first on Oricon's weekly charts. The first week sales exceeded 267,000 copies recorded by their 16th single, Maji Sunshine (released May 2016), becoming their best first week sales.

The number of first ranking in a row (Oricon Weekly Charts) from Ultra Music Jump, their debut single (November 2007) to date is 19 times. This keeps them at the 4th place, behind Kinki Kids (37 singles), KAT-TUN (26 singles) and NEWS (21 singles).

The title track of this single is also the opening theme of the TV anime, Time Bokan 24.

Just some notes:

- Put whatever you're selling in the subject line of your comment.

- Provide details (or a link to details) and contact information in the body of your comment.

- DON'T post pre-orders in here. Only post goods you already have, that you're willing to sell. Comments containing pre-orders will be deleted (and will result in a strike!)

- You're allowed to post whatever you have every single month, as long as it stays within this post. So if you have ongoing sales, or if you didn't manage to sell your things within a month: feel free to leave a comment in the next sales masterpost.

- Please delete or edit your comment if anything has been sold, or reply to your own comment with additional information about the items that have become unavailable.

Here you can find a list of users that have either been blacklisted, or considered trustworthy by the members of this community.

The rule about not being allowed to post anything specifically aimed at members from a certain country (for instance, only selling to residents of Singapore) does NOT apply here. I realised there may be people living in Europe or w/e who might have friends in Singapore that could help them out with these sales. Therefore you ARE allowed to advertise in here, even though you only plan on doing direct business with people from a certain country.

If you want to be informed about new sales/pre-orders immediately by e-mail, you can subscribe to this post by clicking the little pin-button at the top of the entry. ^^

If you have any questions about Johnny's or Hey! Say! JUMP in particular, feel free to ask here and any of the members will be able to check in to see if they know the answer to help you out.

However, I would like to point out that checking the tags and the FAQ solves the problem about 90% of the time!! The answers to questions like 'Where can I read their J-web translations?' or 'Where can I download School Kakumei?' are easily found by using the tagging system and just browsing around here a bit. The FAQ handles a variety of things, like how to get tickets for Johnny's concerts, how to send fanletters, and the airing times of the various tv shows featuring JUMP members.

May I remind you that, this is open-member post so any questions that came here can be answered by all members, as long you guys know the actual thing. I'm just posting a thread so we can have a neat and organise website but if I know the answers to your questions, I'm more than happy to reply.

Hence, take a look at the previous masterposts. Maybe your question is already answered there and if not maybe you see a question you know the answer to yourself. It's all about helping each other, right?
