Ok, seeing how my last post on HSJ's ranks in Oricon charts getting such a positive response, I'll share one other news that was released ~2 months back.

Every year, Nikkei Entertainment releases a scatterplot, where they identify celebrities (actor/actresses, sportsman, singers, idols, etc.) and their relative popularity in terms of public recognition/awareness and public interest.
Johnny's groups generally scale pretty well on the public interest axis. The biggest difference between JE groups would fall under the public recognition axis, meaning the percentage of the general public actually knowing who they are.
Arashi has always topped the musical act ranking, and has done so for the past 5 years.

I'm going to share the summary of HSJ's rankings in 2015 and 2016, for comparison.
Read more...Collapse )
For clearer identification, HSJ has been circled in red, and members names have been circled in blue.
Vertical axis (Y-axis) - Interest
Horizontal axis (X-axis) - Familiarity/Recognition

Circles
Green - Next Break Zone
Orange - Attention Zone
Blue - Current Leader Zone
Purple - Well-Known but Lacking Interest Zone

2015 TALENT POWER RANKING
In 2015, only Yamada, Chinen and Hikaru managed to rank in the scatterplot.




2016 TALENT POWER RANKING
In 2016, there is a huge surge of interest in all the members, and for the first time, all members actually charted in the scatterplot.



A breakdown of the upward trend of the individual members ranking:


For those who can't read the members names, here's a guide for you:
山田 涼介 Yamada Ryosuke
知念 侑李 Chinen Yuri
中島裕翔 Nakajima Yuto
岡本 圭人Okamoto Keito
有岡 大貴 Arioka Daiki
高木 雄也Takaki Yuya
薮 宏太   Yabu Kota
八乙女 光 Yaotome Hikaru
伊野尾慧 Inoo Kei

P.S. (These information are from my interaction with friends and some Japanese and I don't have any credible source to support this):
- HSJ has always been about Yamada, and it is refreshing to see how it is beginning to change, with the other members gaining more momentum/interest.
- Mass media in Japan is considering HSJ as the next Arashi.

Just sharing some news of HSJ's ranking in this year's Oricon 2016 Mid-Year charts:

Single
8. Hey! Say! JUMP - Maji Sunshine: 290, 843

Music DVD
3. Sensations - Sayonara Sensation: 214, 913
4. Hey! Say! JUMP - Hey! Say! JUMP LIVE TOUR 2015 JUMPing CARnival: 191,775

The AramaJapan link below has translated an interesting bit of HSJ in the Oricon article:
-Hey! Say! JUMP is gaining momentum, getting into the top 10 of the midyear single chart for the first time since 2010’s “Hitomi no Screen”

Since this is HSJ and I think all of us fans will be interested, I'll translate the full mention of HSJ:
Hey! Say! JUMP landing 8th place with Maji Sunshine can be considered quite a major topic. With their last top 10 entry in the mid-year charts being 6 years ago, in 2010 with Hitomi no Screen, even with Johnny's Entertainment debuting new groups or units year after year, HSJ who are celebrating their 10th anniversary next year and having the power to maintain their popularity is not normal or easy.

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?
 
 
 

This is long overdue, and I am sorry to have let hey_say dwindle as much as it did. This community, and its members, deserve more than I can give it.

I lost my interest in Hey Say JUMP as a group a lot time ago, and I should have forfeited my position as moderator around that time, but alas -- I have not, and here we are now.

I am not sure how many of the original moderators are still active members of this community, but those who are are free to message me, and they can resume their position as a moderator, possibly even become the owner of this community, as it is really not for me anymore.

To those who want to help the community, and become a moderator to bring it back to life, this post will function as a mod application. All comments are screened so don't worry, no one but me will see your application. You'll have until next monday (July 4) to apply. After that I will send the chosen moderators an email with instructions.

Just realize that experience is a must when you want apply to be the owner, a love for HSJ is merely required for those who want to be moderators.



Name:
Age:
How long have you been a fan:
Time available to moderate:
Why should you be chosen to be a moderator:
Experience:
Applying for owner too? Y/N

Hello everyone~ today I want to tell you about a new app I think you'll all like, if you use amino apps you probably already know about it but today they released an app very different to all their previous ones. Unlike their previous apps the Amino app is home to several communities, led by fans that were chosen through an application procedure. I was lucky enough to be chosen as one of these leaders and the community I'm leading is Jpop Amino!

On Jpop Amino you can make blogs, chats, polls, about Hey! Say! JUMP or any other Jpop group/artist, it's a great way to meet other Jpop fans!

There's already a HSJ chat just waiting for members to join. You can join here, I look forward to hopefully seeing you all there ^^

Dear Yamada, happy birthday! omg, can't believe you're already 23 years old.

Really proud of you. Have a great celebration today!

Please put all picture spams, birthday graphics, fanvideos, general flailings etc in the comments of this post, or if you are posting in your own journal, feel free to give links to those here in the comments.
