Kimura_Takuya

So it’s been a little quiet around here but here’s some news for all you SMAP fans!! Kimura Takuya will be starring in Space Battleship Yamato!! Credits to Never Ending Music Power (seca) for providing the news!! That’s exciting for him!

Speaking of SMAP, their newest single will be entitled Sono Kyuuto / Superstar [insert star here]. Finally a release for these guys!!

New SMAP

So yeah, SMAP will be releasing a new single entitled Sotto Kyuuto on 08.26.09! Excluding those un-necessary re-releases, this is going to be their first single of the year so everyone get excited!! SMAP hasn’t done anything in a while so I’m hoping this means Johnny is ready to let some others take the spotlight and Hey! Say! JUMP will release something in September…
