I know Johnny Kitagawa is the producer of Johnnys & Associate but he is 77 years old now what will happen to Johnnys entertainment when he dies? Ive always thought of that. He has created Johnnys talent agency in 1963 and so many boy bands by picking them himself and even name the each group. When he dies, do you think it will be the end of Johnnys talent agency ?

I'm sure this is something that can be discussed in the JE Fandom thread: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-2315/Johnnys-Entertainment-Fandom.html

Anyway, to answer the question in the thread: I know his sister (I think her name is Mary) is part Johnny & Associates and, if I'm not mistaken, she holds a pretty up there position within the agency so I'm under the impression that once her father passes away she'd automatically get the spot of President. Then again, I've heard from different sources that she's not entirely interested in working in the entertainment world.

Also, Higashiyama Noriyuki (of Shounentai) also holds an official position in the agency, so maybe if Mary won't take over maybe he will? I don't know. He's one of the big daisenpais in the agency, not to mention that he is already very much respected by a lot of the JE talent anyway so maybe that's what will happen? Who knows. But yeah, I'm sure that when Johnny-san passes away that won't equal the end of the agency.

Sorry, this is my first thread that I made so>< but I didn't know he has daughter! I thought he was gay? but even If they don't end the agency, it probably wouldn't be the same.

No need to apologize! It's perfectly okay. =] Also, I'm mistaken. Mary is his sister rather than his daughter. Heh. Sorry about that! *kicks misread information from one of her sources* I should've done my research a lot better.

But yeah. Ending the agency would be such a drastic move to do for when Johnny-san passes away. I mean, they do currently house a large amount of Japan's current young talent, if I'm not mistaken. Not to mention what'll happen to the debut groups. But I will agree that it will definitely not be the same without Johnny-san.

I am curious of Johnny Kitagawa's appearance. Anyone who will care to post a photo of him?

To answer the question, I think Johnny's Entertainment will continue their business but I guess not with the same aura when Kitagawa is still around. No one can beat the founder's way of leading the agency.

I don't think his sister will take over because she's also very old already... and I think he will give it to somone like Higashiyama or at least someone like Tackey who care about his kohais so much and know good seeds to be produced...

@moOdieSeye: I don't think there's a photo of Kitagawa.. he's the mysterious old guy who always walks around in the audition hall and almost got kick from his own office by the security guard (because the security didn't know him). I think he never been interviewed (not sure thuogh)

hahahaha....yeah i heard the same thing in another interview that most of the johnnys kids thought he was like a security guard at the auditions...but wooow i didnt know he was that old!!! but if he dies im pretty sure they'll use someone who is knowledgable and super creative to take his spot! i don't think it will be the end of Johnnys though....

Well, I heard about he sexual harassed some old group in the 80s and was sued but they are not too sure about it though. But I don't think he do that anymore because he is too old and he was sued before so.. besides seems like many people from Johnnys respect him. I used to be like ewww and didn't like him but now I don't hate him as much. In fact, I think he did great job raising so many talents.
