- Ichitaro Yamazaki

Are you/ were you a fan of any of the D-Boys?
Among them my favorites are Araki, Yuya, Shirota, Suzuki & Kaji because of Tenimyu but I'm loving them even more because of DD-Boys. They're all so cute & funny!!!

DD-Boys is the TV show of the D-Boys. The D-Boys namely Yuya, Shirota, Yanagi, Yuichi, Wada & Zukki live in a house called D-House. They do this scripted intro at first then there a challenge to each member. After the intro there's this 5 seconds countdown then a challenge will be revealed and the corresponding D-boy/s to take the challenge.

Though I didn't understand most of what they're saying I continue to watch it coz all of them are so wacky! Their personality is more than enough to entertain and make me laugh. And what I appreciate about the show is that they slowly introduce each D-Boys so people won't be confused with so many of them.

I've only seen a few episodes so far and from what I've seen here is my view of each D-boys:
Yuuya - is the up tight cutie who always worries about the rent
Shirota - is the gorgeous but dorky singer of the group
Yanagi - is the silent good guy who always have flowers with him
Wada - is the marathon man
Yuichi - is the superb dancer of the group
Zukki - not sure of him yet but he damn funny!

After every challenge the member/s supposed to learn something from the challenge but I'm not so sure what they learned from an eating contest at episode 4. Anyways, it's one of the funniest episode I've seen so far, Zukki!!!

Have any of you seen any DD-Boys episode?

I have yet to see some DD-Boys episode. Yuya is one of my faves. Shirota has acted in many dramas/movies so yeah I have seen some of them. Most of them are in the Prince of Tennis musicals and I have seen one of them. I have also seen some of them act in Prince of Tennis Live Version and then Osamu Adachi and Nakamura Yuichi in Princess Princess D. And then Hirofumi Araki and Hiroki Suzuki in Gekiranger. Yeah they are pretty well-known, although not as well-known as Johnny's Entertainment (Yamapi and others). I mean they have a good fanbase too. I pretty much think that Shirota would be the well-known of most of the guys in D-Boys since he stars in a lot of dramas and movies, especially for his role in Prince of Tennis. He's good friends w/ Yamapi, Jin Akanishi, and Toma Ikuta from JE.

The best way to see and read their blogs is at
http://www.watanabepro.co.jp/arakihirofumi/

They are in Japanese, but you can use an online translator for some of them. I can understand some of it just from the translations even if it's bad. It's fun to read them sometimes. They are so funny and cute. They are in Japanese, but you can use an online translator for some of them. I can understand some of it just from the translations even if it's bad. It's fun to read them sometimes. They are so funny and cute. I'm still wondering if there's translations for those blogs. I have yet to find them. On watanabe, you can access some videos of them. They are so cute in them. Like this:
http://prince-series.com/dboys/movie.html

It's the Prince Series with Zuki, Koji and Araki. They are so cute in the videos. Just click on the colors. Like Zuki is red. Then it'll have a little video preview on the side that's like a fanvid. I think Koji looks so cute in his video. It's basically showing just a preview of the DVD. I would love to buy the DVDs one day.

There`s this magazine this month which has Shirota Yuu as the cover. I saw it on a bookstore awhile ago, the other D-Boys are also in the magazine. It looks like a photo mag

I'm such a Hirofumi girl it's not even funny. Loved the D-Boys in PoT musical and in the live action movie. I wish I could find DD-Boys with some subtitles but that hasn't happened yet.
