The Exact Opposite
This time we asked comparison about themselves. All 10 of them are mature that they knew exactly what their good points and bad points are! Please look out for 7 and BEST photos that was shot with comparison-ish situation.


Takaki Yuya
It’s hard for me to show my true feelings.

Mature part and childish part of yourself
I think making judgment calmly is one of my mature part. Surprisingly, I take action by looking at the situation around me, thinking “I can do this much but I can’t do it this far.” Part of me that I think I’m still a kid is … (with straight face) I don’t think I have any since I’m mature about everything… that’s completely a joke (laughs), honestly, I have countless times. Sometimes, when I suddenly realize, I’ll be all psyched up with the 7 on the same level.

Favorite part and part you want to change about yourself.
I like that I’m pretty straight forward about my feelings. If I find a person I like, I’ll be only thinking about that person and I think I’ll take good care of her. I might look preppy but I’m actually very innocent! (laughs). For part I don’t like about myself is, sometimes, what I’m saying contradict myself. I’ll be saying something totally different from what I was just saying before, happens from time to time, so I want to fix that part of myself. I want to take full responsibility on what I say.

If you go out with me there are privilege and problems like this?!
Like I just said, I’m a straight forward person! I can’t even think about cheating if I get a girlfriend and I think I’ll always be thinking about her and how I would take care of her. But, I’m personality wise, a type of person who can’t show their feelings to other people. For example, when I’m very tired and someone asks me “are you tired?” I think I might say “ No, I’m fine”… That’s why I’m worried that I wouldn’t be able to speak my mind to the person who’ll be my girlfriend and I might make her sad. I actually want to go out revealing my true feelings.

Recent condition
I’m working hard everyday on the set of the drama, Gokusen (Nippon Terebi. Every Saturday 21:00 ~). Like usual, I’m still wrestling around with the casts happily. During my private time, I had one whole day off the other day so, I went to the café alone and walked around the town, spending my time in a relaxed mood. It was a good refreshing time and I think time like these are important too.


Yabu Kota
I intend to be an adult during my job.

Mature part and childish part of yourself
I’m always mature during work! You have to have a broad outlook and feelings toward life, when it’s the 10 of us. I don’t have much time alone and there isn’t much time to relax either but you can never be irritated when that happens. When I do get irritated, I tried to talk to Takaki. Childish part of me is that I have short temper and I hate losing. I even get mad waiting on the traffic signal! Also, I change the lyrics of a song to dirty jokes. That part of me is still a child (laughs).

Favorite part and part you want to change about yourself.
That I have the power to concentrate well on the things I like. But, the power to concentrate only comes out when I‘m doing my favorite things to do. I can let it out during work and when I’m playing games (laughs). For example, when I’m playing car race game my whole body is moving with the game. What I want to fix is my lack of interest. I can also get bored of games too. I can get enthusiastic and get bored about anything. For example, I always want to change the model of cell phones really fast. Because the new models are always so cool looking.

If you go out with me there are privilege and problems like this?!
If you go out with me, it’s full of good things! I’ll listen to your selfishness and I’ll always buy a little bit of something when we go to the convenience store, on my treat! But, my kindness doesn’t seem to be understandable to girls… I can’t straight out tell her “It’s my treat” instead I say “It’s okay, it’ll be too much of a hassle.” The problem is that I lack sleep sometimes. I think I’ll be talking on the phone until 4 in the morning. Then, if the person want to go, I think I might say something like “Eh, are you going to sleep? No, it’s okay… are you really going to sleep?” (laughs).

Recent conditions
It’s almost Yokohama Arena concert (interview was in late April). Yokohama Arena is where Hey!Say!JUMP was announced so I have intense thoughts into it. I’m looking forward to it since it’s the first concert as a group in Yokohama Arena. Also, I went to go eat okonomiyaki [pan-fried batter cake with various ingredients in it] with Takaki recently! We thought it’ll be boring if it was normal so we randomly picked the ingredients and made “Johnny’s manly cooking”. There was various thing in it, rice, egg, mayonnaise, soy sauce, … and kimchi. It was no longer a okonomiyaki at the end (laughs). But, it was surprisingly good!

Arioka Daiki
I consider myself mature when I’m with the 7

Mature part and childish part of yourself
When I’m with the 5 members of 7, you can discover a mature side of me. Especially how I treat Morimoto (laughs). When Morimoto try to start something with me and starts talking to me, I just ignore it by saying “Yeah, sure”. When it’s with all the members of 7, I can’t ignore it, so fights and what not starts. But I couldn’t ignore it in the past. That’s why I used to have verbal fights with Yuto a lot. I think I’m childish when I’m with the BEST members. I rely on them about various. I leave all the talking to them. I think the older members are all reliable person than me.

Favorite part and part you want to change about yourself.
My favorite part that I’m positive, I try not to care about everything. I can forget anything awful by just sleeping on it. Maybe I’m simple-minded. Part I want to change is something I don’t want the BEST to see (laughs). Inside and out. When I’m eating too much snacks or play around with the 7 members. It feels like I’m pulling everyone’s legs because we are trying to make difference between us like “the cute 7” and “the cool BEST”… I want to fix the appearance first. I’m going to grow my height by hanging on the “hanging health device bar”(laughs).

If you go out with me there are privilege and problems like this?!
I will contact you everyday for the privilege. It might be ordinary thing to do though (laughs). I’m a pretty diligent person so I won’t make her worry! I want to do all I can do to the person I like. My problem point is that I‘m a bad riser. I try to be careful for meet ups on dates but I have a feeling I’ll be late sometimes. Also, I don’t think I’ll reply if she gives me a mail in the morning. If that happens, just assume I’m sleeping.

Recent condition
I learned so many things during concerts this time. We talked about various things, like talks. We had a talk on what we did bad on that day. We couldn’t get any laugh in Osaka with the same joke that was funny in Tokyo. We have so much to learn! I reached my 17th birthday on April 15th. I got a case for a portable music player from Keito. But, unfortunately the size didn’t match (laughs). I got a necklace from Inoo chan. I was so happy!


Yaotome Hikaru
The part that I hate about me is that I’m a little shy.

Mature part and childish part of yourself.
I guess the part where I can strictly scold the 7 members when we have a group work is like an adult. After all, I think it’s important to have someone like that in a group. But, when my mood goes high, I have times where I horse-around more than the 7 so, I guess that’s still my childish part (laughs). I roar repeatedly for no reason. But, I love how I’m enjoying myself so, I have no intention of changing! (laughs) This is who I am!!

Favorite part and part you want to change about yourself.
First, I like the fact that I don’t have any likes and dislike in food. I’m too interested in food general that it’s a troublesome (laughs). Recent great hit is sakuramochi [Bean paste pink rice-cake wrapped in a cherry leaf] that a staff gave us! It was so delicious that I’m starting to get into it. And part I hate about myself is… is that I’m a little shy? (everyone: “Liar~”) sure, if someone ask me to do an impression during concerts or recoding of a show, I’m a type that would accept it and I might not look like a shy person from people around me. But, actually I’m thinking “this is embarrassing~” inside (laughs).

If you go out with me there are privilege and problems like this?!
First, for privilege, I will do anything my girlfriend tells me! Then, I’ll poke her head saying “Gosh, you’re such a willful person”… I yearn for that kind of situation (laughs). Also, there is a privilege that I’ll give them western music songs as a present for the person who becomes my girlfriend. Then, the girlfriend will translate it into Japanese little by little and be fluttered saying “What?! It has a beautiful meaning to it?!” (laughs). Problems… nothing in particular! I think we’ll go out happily! (laughs)

Recent conditions
Recently I bought a book shelf, bed, laptop, and a guitar. I know that I’ve spent a bit too much money and I apologize to my mother but I’m very pleased with each and everyone one of them! I’m hoping to use that guitar for concert someday and I’m planning to make songs using the laptop so, I hope you look forward to the development in the future.


Inoo Kei
If I ever get a girlfriend, I just want to treat her kindly.

Mature part and childish part of yourself
To tell you the truth, I have a severe likes and dislike in food that I could only eat rice and meat. But, lately I can eat more vegetables. Does this mean that my sense of taste is growing up? Part of me that I think I’m still a kid is, when my mood goes up, I fool around with Dai chan and others like idiots. It’s so much of an commotion that I don’t even know how to explain it in words. (laughs) But, I enjoy every minute of it and I think it’s one of my precious time.

Favorite part and part you want to change about yourself
First of all, my favorite part about myself is that I can talk friendly with everyone. I had that kind of personality since I was little and I was a kid who would go up to strangers and talk to them without getting all timid about it. Instead, the part I dislike about myself is that, I always say careless/random things to a person to deceive them right away (laughs). I used to trick Dai chan a lot but, lately Dai chan has noticed it saying “everything he says is careless”, it’s no use tricking him now… it’s such a bore (laughs).

If you go out with me there are privilege and problems like this?!
If I ever get a girlfriend, I’ll be kind to her in any case! I think I’ll call her everyday and if she ever have anything on her mind, I want to listen to her worries any day. Also, if my girlfriend ever catch a flu, I’ll do my best to make her some food and nurse her but… actually I can’t cook at all so, maybe that’s my problem point (laughs). I hope I’ll meet someone I can devote myself to that far.

Recent condition
The other day, I went to the recording location for “Hyakushiki-oh” with Dai chan. I ended up riding on the roller coaster that I hate, countless times. Honestly, it was pretty hard (laughs). But, I like working on recording location as a whole because it’s fun. I’m hoping to go to other places in the future. For my private time, I’ve been spending time inside lately (laughs). I had a day off yesterday but I spent the whole day at home spacing out. I was just reflecting on my action thinking “this can go on!” I want to plan more to be active.


Yamada Ryosuke
I think I can make our date a fun time.

Mature part and childish part of yourself.
I don’t get mad at Ryutaro as much as before now (laughs). I’m starting to deal with it, thinking “He’s still a child but I guess he have many things on his mind too”. I think I’ve gotten mature about that. Part of me that I think I’m still a kid is that I’m easily influenced by manga. When I read a Yankee story, the way I talk starts to be like them and when I read a combat type of story, I suddenly start being all tough mood. I’m such a kid (laughs). But, I’ll start finding who I am soon so, I don’t think there’s no need to change myself now.

Favorite part and part you want to change about yourself.
Favorite part about myself is that I’m positive. For example, instead of feel crappy when I get in trouble I’ll automatically think “If I don’t get in trouble now, I won’t learn anything.” Other then that, my feeling of “I have to do my best on this work too” get’s too strong and I have times that I think about it too much. I don’t think I like that part about me… I wonder how I can fix this ?! I don’t even know how myself (laughs).

If you go out with me there are privilege and problems like this?!
I think I’ll listen to any needs that my partner want during dates and I think I’ll be able to make it a fun time, I think that’s the privilege. But, I don’t think I’ll be able to pay all my attention to her during my job because all of my feeling will be concentrated to that. To make long story short, my on and off moment is clear. My problem point would be, I don’t think I’ll be able to go out with anyone who won’t say “Do your best at work!” understanding that who I am. But you see, I hate getting negative comments about me doing my best with my job.

Recent condition
I really want to go shopping for clothes right now… but not my clothes, clothes for my dog Ku (laughs). Right now, just spending time with Ku is the most fun! It’s an awesome peaceful time. I get soft spot in my heart when Ku demands my attention (laughs).

Nakajima Yuto
I think I’ll be too noisy if we go on a date in an amusement park!

Mature part and childish part of yourself
I think myself as an adult when I think about how “childish” Ryutaro is (laughs). The subject that Ryutaro talks about will make you think “after all, he was a elementary student recently”. Also, he’s stories go all over. It’s really cute! Then, my sense of taste is like an old man (laughs). Basahi [raw horse meat sashimi], uni [sea urchin], wasabi-octopus, and yuzu pepper [seasoning made out of red pepper and Japanese citron rind, blended with salt is made into a paste then leave it to mature] is all so delicious. When I think myself as a kid is when, I can talk easily with my 9 year old little brother. We sometimes do fight and I’ll get irritated by him. Those are times when I think “I’m still a kid”.

Favorite part and part you want to change about yourself.
I like my personality that’s high in mood and high spirited that people tell me I’m a bit too loud! I think these type of personality is what I should make full use of during work. The part I like about my face is the mole under my eye. It’s because I have it on the same spot as Takizawa (HideakI) kun (laughs). What I want to fix is, that I’m too loud. For example, you know how you get happy when your friend is talking about what you know, right? My reaction is dramatic when that happens. Hikaru kun tells me jokingly “Yuto, you’re loud (laughs)”. I know I have to be able to talk reading the atmosphere of the room more.

If you go out with me there are privilege and problems like this?!
If you go out with me, I’ll surprise you on birthdays or the anniversary! First, I’ll act like I don’t know anything and give the present saying “I didn’t actually forget~”. When I become an adult, I want to have a party with just the 2 of us. But, I feel like it’s going to be old man-ish party (laughs). The problem would be that I have bitter/mature taste in food. I think salted chicken liver barbecued will be served. Even on dates, I don’t think I’ll be able to go to restaurant of her choice (laughs). Also, I’ll be really loud on a scary rides in amusement parks~! I think you’ll be embarrassed to be with me…

Recent condition
I’m cheering for the all of Japan’s team as a supporter of “The Beijing Olympics world volleyball’s last preliminary”! I really want them to go to the Olympics. I haven’t played much on my private time. I want to go watch movies. But, I’m in 3rd year middle school now and this year, I’m a examinee so, I have to do my best studying! Math seems to be harder too.


Okamoto Keito
I don’t want to forget having pleasant feelings at all times.

Mature part and childish part of yourself
I always liked reading and lately I’ve been reading philosophical books that teaches you about life. I think that part of me is a bit mature?! Part I think I’m still a child is that I like snacks. Especially éclair or snacks that have lots of fresh creams in it. But, comparing myself from then, I think the amount I eat has decreased a bit. Is it possibly that my sense of taste is maturing too?

Favorite part and part you want to change about yourself.
Part I like is that I can speak English. I think this will come in handy. By the way, I usually think in English in my head because it’s much easier. But, English and Japanese is all mixed up in my dream (laughs). This is a mysterious sensation even for me! The part I don’t like about myself is that I’m quiet. I want to be able to talk cheerful and lively like the other 9 from Hey! Say! JUMP! To do that, it’s important for me to never forget to have a pleasant feeling at all times. I guess I’ll work hard to change little by little so, please look forward to next time?! (laughs).

If you go out with me there are privilege and problems like this?!
I think my privilege will be that I won’t restrain my partner. It’s definitely OK to go out with other friends. Instead, my problem will be that I won’t be able to heat up the conversation and that I can’t lead her. That’s why, I think girls who speaks their opinions on dates like “I want to go here” or “I want to do this” suits me the best.

Recent condition
Recently, I have given more chance to speak English on the recordings of “Hyakushiki-oh” and to me, I’m very happy! There’s different expressions from Japanese and speaking it is very enjoyable. Also, I’m into practicing my guitar right now. I’ve only playing it for about a half an year and when I start playing, it’s hard to stop because it’s so much fun. Because I want to show you, me playing the guitar and singing at the same time, please wait patiently.


Morimoto Ryutaro
I watch DVDs to study MC!

Mature part and childish part of yourself
Lately, I’ve started watching DVD of comedies. I try to watch at least 1 a day. It’s to study my MC skill. I’m hoping to perfectly understand what the funny part is by watching the comedian’s skits and talks. I think that part of me is pretty mature. Part I think I’m still a child is, I’m too easy on myself. I think I should start doing my best on what I’m supposed to do, on my own. Because there’s part of me still that relies on people.

Favorite part and part you want to change about yourself.
Part I want to fix my body is that my head is too big (laughs). But, I can’t fix this. That’s why I’m consulting with my beautician right now to make it look smaller. I feel like my head will look smaller if I cut my hair shorter. I like that I’m a cheerful. I try to be happy whatever it takes. I want to stay happy even if anything bad or rough things happen. I feel like I have to be always happy as long as I have this job. But, if I do ever get depressed, I do what ever I like to do. It’s watching DVDs right now.

If you go out with me there are privilege and problems like this?!
The privilege will be that when I become an adult, I’ll come and pick you up in my car on dates! Also, since I love sushi and yakiniku, I hope I’ll be able to treat you to a dinner if I go on a date. Instead, my problem point is that my personality can be easily changed depending on how that morning goes. I’m in a difficult age right now! (laughs) That part of me can appear even if it’s to a person I like…

Recent condition
The rehearsal for Yokohama Arena has began (interview was taken around late April). What I want you to watch out for about the concert is, everything. That’s because Hikaru kun was the one who organized it. There are new songs so, please enjoy watching various parts of the concert. Also, it was decided that we are the supporters for “the Beijing Olymics world volleyball’s last preliminary” so, I’ll do my best cheering as if I’m am one of the players! I don’t have any big changes in my private life (laughs). The studying is harder now that I’m a middle school student. I’m fine in English but math looks pretty hard! I’ll have to work hard to get my grades higher. That’s the goal for my first year middle school life.


Chinen Yuri
I like that I’m carefree and courageous!

Mature part and childish part of yourself.
Well, I’m not exactly an adult… and people tell me I’m childish. I don’t know where the mature of myself is but, I sleep instead of playing around on my spare time. That’s because playing around is too much of a hassle (laughs). I’m a type of person who won’t do anything if it’s not what I want to do. I think everything about me is still a child. I do love snacks

Favorite part and part you want to change about yourself.
I liked that I’m carefree. I can do any acrobats, easily. What I want to change is, my height (laughs). I want to grow more! I don’t think I have anything I like about my personality… I don’t make any effort and I’m short tempered. I get irritated easily when I’m meeting up with my friend and my friend calls saying “I’ll be there in 5 minutes” but doesn’t come until late. My thoughts on that will be “how long does your 5 minutes take?” (laughs). I have so much things I want to fix about my personality~. Oh, but I think my courageous part is a good thing. I’m never scared when I do acrobats.

If you go out with me there are privilege and problems like this!?
I don’t have any privileges (laughs). If you insist, then it’ll be surprises! The surprise is that you’ll never know what’s going to happen, when you are with me (laughs). This is a privilege right? Every day will be full of surprises. The good thing will be, you’ll never be bored. The problem will be that we can’t go on a date if I’m tired. I think my first priority is for me to get sleep when it’s troublesome or tired, even if it’s someone I really like.

Recent condition.
Lately, I don’t do anything on my private time! When I come home from school, I find going out to play is too much of a hassle, so I think I’m sleeping most of the time. I get too tired of doing anything lately. But, I think I want to go out to play with Keito. It’s fun being with him and the way he talks is really cute (laughs). About my work, it’s almost Yokohama Arena concert. I’ll do my best! (interview was taken in late April). I don’t know why but my stomach started hurting during Osaka concert. But, when I got on the stage, I started feeling better. I think it’s thanks to those who came to watch us!
