Nakajima Yuto

About this concert

For this concert, we have our own BEST and 7 corners and we were told “7 can think of what 7 want to do”. It was our first time so I certainly felt the pressure but I got more motivation than ever. Hikaru kun came up with the concert’s keyword “TV”, I thought “his ideas are incredible!” and I really look up to him for that. Many ideas come to my mind just with that one keyword. Hikaru kun usually has his own originality in his fashion and he clothes always looks good on him. His perspectives are different than most people. I really think he’s amazing. I hope I can become someone who can think that way ‘cause I’m pretty normal (laughs). For my own personal ambition, I want to try cosplay. Like wearing Santa costume in Christmas season. You can only wear those at concerts or somewhere with festive mood, right? I think concerts are special place where the audiences and we (JUMP) can escape from reality.

What improved from the first concert

I think my height is what improved. I really grew this year but compared to that, I haven’t gained any weight at all… my cheeks looks flat. Even the staff at the drama shoot tells me “you’re face looks so mature now” but I think that’s because my cheeks were chubbier back then. I seriously want to gain weight! I think the problem is that I don’t eat much meals ‘cause I stuff myself full with sweets. Keito, who’s been growing, told me “oops, I ate 2 bento” (laughs). I’m 52kg right now so I’ll do my best to gain 5kg!

Member’s change

Chinen changed. I noticed he became really fashionable now (laughs). Seems like he found interest in fashion over the year, that he wears jacket and a hat now when he wore parka and knit cap before… For me, that’s like going to a party fashion (laughs). Also, Chinen has long legs that he looks good in anything. When I see Chinen, it makes me think that I should start sensing fashion. But I really don’t like boots. I just feel that “pointy” part makes you look like you’re trying to be cool (laughs). Even if I start interested in fashion, I’ll always wear sneakers.

Hey!Say!JUMP from now on

It’s been more than a year since we formed but the members get along more now and I can feel our bond have gotten closer. There are little arguments but never a serious fight. I think “saying what’s on one’s mind relation” is really a good connection. I really think as years pass by that part of us will keep getting stronger. But we can never forget about our original intention. Like the excitement of the debut or to never lose our motivation. My dream is to become nationalized group like SMAP. Also, I think JUMP have many members who can play instruments with Yabu kun, Hikaru kun, lately Keito has been practicing guitar, I can play a little bit of the drums, and Inoo chan playing the piano. I think it’s hard for this concert but one of my goals is to play a band song with the JUMP members.




Yamada Ryosuke

About this concert

This time, we were told that we can say our opinions on the7’s corner. There’s a pressure about getting feedback straight from the audience but I was really excited since this is my first time. Also, I think that’s a very fortunate thing if we could make the audience happy. I guess what I look forward to the most in concerts is the time spent with the fans. It’s really a precious time for me too, and not just the fans. Concerts are where we can improve too, right? We could never look that cool with confidence every day (laughs). At first, I was embarrassed about being watched by large numbers of people but when I noticed “these large numbers of people are here to support me” … my feelings changed. I know now that I’m a fortunate person and I know how much fun life is. But I can never think that’s ordinary. I’ll try not to forget about “I’m fortunate to have people supporting me” feeling from now on as well.

What improved from the first concert

I don’t think we made that sudden of a change but compared to before, I think we had “gotten used to” in a good way. I was really nervous and my heart was beating fast for our first concert. But lately, the heart beat changed into “let’s do this!” kind of excitement heart beats. I think I’m more courageous and have gotten stronger mentally. Also, the member’s relationships are deeper now. All the members are easier to talk to and I think a bond-like-thing is there now. What changed especially is my relation with Yuto kun. We have argument like fights lately and our relation have gotten really deep. But fights are usually about grade school leveled reasons (laughs). For me, it’s actually scary not to fight… or more, I want to be in a relation where one can say whatever’s on mind. That’s why I really like the connection I have now. I guess relationship between people you spent a year with is big. I think I’m JUMP’s Yamada because the members are there.

Member’s change

Appearance wise change is of course, Ryutaro. He’s gotten bigger. He was so small back then but now, he’s about the same as me. Crap…, this is seriously bad (laughs). Yuto kun is still growing at this rate and Keito is growing without losing to Yuto kun and he has the good character of being the random/stupid one (laughs). I don’t think Chinen will grow taller than me but he has his own weapon called acrobat, right? Then, what’s my character? Eh, is it “normal” (laughs)? No way, I have to show everyone I’m not just normal in this concert!

Hey!Say!JUMP from now on

This’ll sound weird coming from a middle schooler but, JUMP now is… especially 7 hasn’t come out yet. I think everyone shows what they are about but I feel that we still lack experiences. Yabu kun and Hikaru kun had experienced many things so there are times I’m amazed by them. My eyes just turn into hearts when I see them deal with a happening so quickly depending on the situation during the concert (laughs). These 10 people with 10 different personalities keep stacking various experiences and when the bonds between the members get stronger…. Yeah, I think this group will become something incredible!



Chinen Yuri

About this concert

Hikaru kun and Yabu kun constructed JUMP as a whole but since we were told “7 can decide for 7’s corner” so the three from 7 talked about it even during filming of the drama. We were all seriously thinking about it but we always end up thinking of the same old things. It’s really hard to think of something that lasts in everyone’s memory or something that makes people gasp. What I want to try is… if making it reality or not doesn’t matter, besides splitting into BEST and 7, there are members who are picked to dance a lot, members who forms a band, or ballad team who sings graceful songs. So, I want to try something that makes people think “this kind of match is weird but it’s pretty good!” Personally, I just want to dance! Keyword would be “let’s get hyped up!” I’d be happy if everyone look at me get hyped up with me.

What improved from the first concert

I’ve gotten used to the members (laughs). I was really nervous and couldn’t talk much when I first met the members. Especially Hikaru kun, it was almost the first time we met. I’ve talked to Yabu kun before forming JUMP but I never had that timing with Hikaru kun. That’s why when it was just two of us, I thought “what should I talk about? What if he’s a scary person?” and my heart was beating fast. But when I actually got to talk to him, I remember being relieved that he’s actually a nice person. In conclusion, I get along with every member that I can talk in my proud sharp tongue now (laughs). This sharp tongue is my weapon. I’m going to keep cutting you guys up (laughs)!

Member’s change

Keito’s haircut (laughs). It was really short when I first met him but it’s gotten pretty long now. In my opinion, he looks better with the haircut he has now. Also, not just his haircut, I think he changed mentally too. First, the way he walked changed. When JUMP just formed, he walked like he was nervous in front of the fans. Now, I think Keito looks cool that he can walk in such a confidence. He learns the dance steps a lot faster too and seems like he’s interested in acrobat now that Keito asked me to teach him some. When I taught him few during SUMMARY, he became a lot better and I was surprised how he can absorb so much. I think he’s practicing guitar now so I think it’s time for him to play in front of everyone. Anyway, Keito is a hard worker and I think he have improved the most out of JUMP!

Hey!Say!JUMP from now on

4 members are starring in the drama “Scrap Teacher ~ Changing the teachers” now, right? Drama, variety, radio, movie… I want to make this a group where someone is always out there working. Then, it’d be awesome when people around the world starts thinking “I see JUMP a lot now” What I personally want to improve are to get myself out even on TV. I can get my true self during talks on the radios but when it comes to TV, concert’s MC or standing in front of large numbers of people, I shut myself as if I was a whole another person. To be honest, I want to show everyone who I’m always like everyday but. By the way, Takaki kun is the same type as me (laughs). That’s why when we have to talk on TV we’ll be behind the cloudy glass with a voice changer… let’s start from that (laughs).



Morimoto Ryutaro

About this concert

This time the corner just for 7 will be clear as ever so I’m looking forward to that myself on how it’ll turn out. What I think will be cool for 7 to do is silhouette dancing! I saw A.B.C-Z’s Goseki Koichi kun doing it at a concert and it was really cool. I think JUMP improved as a whole since the debut a year ago. Out of those improvements, I think our dance is the most noticeable. That’s why I especially have to do my best for corners that people can clearly see us doing that. I don’t want people to think “eeh~ they’re still like this after a year!?” (laughs). At home, my little brother (Shintaro) asks me “teach me the dance steps” so when that happens, I dance at home too. I can put on more muscles if I put weights on my legs and arm. My body feels much lighter when I dance normally now.

What improved from the first concert

Height! Even the staff I haven’t seen until today was surprised “you’ve grown!” at me. I probably grew about 10cm in this year. Lately, I started saying “yokkorasho…” when I sit down (laughs). When JUMP just formed I was the “little character” and when we were lined up in two rows, I was always in the front row. But soon or later I want to say “ah, I’m totally fine in the back row” in confidence and make Chinen kun or Arioka kun panic (laughs). My final goal is 175cm! Both of my parents aren’t that tall though, but my grandpa is pretty tall so if that gene reappears I’ll be fine!

Member’s change

I think Keito made the biggest change. His hairstyle changed and his dancing level improved a lot. Not even just dancing level, he’s learning the steps in short time. Sounds weird coming from a younger person but I can see, while standing beside him that he’s working hard. Keito only started to work as a junior when JUMP was formed so not many people knew about him. I best he was really nervous. He was often alone and wasn’t in the circle that much. But now, his personality is showing more and he’s getting along with everyone in JUMP.

Hey!Say!JUMP from now on

If there are 10 members that means there 10 different personalities, right? I don’t think we haven’t showed our true selves but I think we can become a group with deep personalities once they come out! Personally, I’m interested in songwriting. I don’t have much talent yet so when I hear a good melody of someone else’s song, I try to sing it with the changed lyrics that I’ve written. I even take notes right after I wake up from a dream and use that as a lyric (laughs). I have 10 songs that I’ve written using those lyrics. In 09, I want to step up to a level where I can make the melodies. Also, I’m aiming for the funny guy character like I said before. But I’m not very good at talking. That’s I want to try one-shot-gag or some type of gag material gambler person (laughs). I have to prepare my materials in case of a moment I need one during MC. Then, in few years I want to be called “Miracle Ryutaro” who can get many laughs by doing anything (laughs)! It’d be a loss if everyone doesn’t start noticing my talents (laughs)!



Okamoto Keito

About this concert

I think JUMP is a group that has something striking. First, there are 10 members and split into two units called BEST and 7. This is a great feature and if we don’t make a use of it, I don’t think JUMP-like features won’t be shown. That’s why I hope to have a concert with 3 colors… JUMP, BEST, and 7. I think 10 people are a lot and I was surprised of how dense it was when we all gathered up (laughs). Now, I’m so used to these numbers of people that I notice “hm? There’s less people today” when there’s just one person missing (laughs). Personally, I look forward to the MC time. Even though I don’t participate much (laughs). I’m not nervous, it’s more that I’m enjoying their conversation like the audience are… something like that (laughs). But, it’s been a year now. I have an ambition that I’ll try to get in the MC this time. I wasn’t able to talk much when I just joined JUMP but now I became such a chatter box that I can talk to the other members as well. I used to read books alone in the dressing room. Looking back now, I think I was aiming for that “cool character” back then (laughs).

What improved from the first concert

For me, just having a first concert was an almost to zero experience. That’s why I think everything improved. At first, I was often sad how there was too much gap between everyone. I couldn’t help that because I had less talent but I was crying over how I wanted to catch up to everyone as soon as possible… it was a year with that feeling. It’ll be weird coming from me but I really did practice a lot. When I was practicing dancing alone, Yuto kun or Hikaru kun will start and other will join in to give me advice on things. I’m really thankful for the member’s kindness.

Member’s change

I’m starting to hang out with Hikaru kun more. Before, I saw him as my sempai and I was nervous all the time. Last year, there was a time when I was alone with him during moving from work to work but I remember it was awkward ‘cause I was like “what should I talk about~” (laughs). But Hikaru kun is actually a nice person. He might tease me or say harsh things when everyone’s around but when it’s just the two of us, he listens to me the whole time. Now, we have really good connection.

Hey!Say!JUMP from now on

Like I said earlier, JUMP has 10 members so I hope to make that into a good use. For example, we try to elaborate formation of the dance. We did an S formation during “Your Seed” but I think that’s a feature we can do because of the large numbers of people. I want to keep doing more complex formation that’d “wow” the people watching. Furthermore, I want to be a group that makes people think “great numbers of people has such a dynamic. Great numbers of peopled groups are cool”.
