Two more down, three more to go


A case of the influenza A strain is certainly making its way through Johnny’s boys.

Kanjani∞ members Yuu Yokoyama and Tadayoshi Ohkura are down for the count, making this four of the seven boys down.

No need for details, I’m sure you don’t really care that Ohkura has a 38.2°C temperature, or that Yokoyama has a 38°C temperature.

It looks like that virus has it in for Johnny’s boys. Who will be next? Will the members of NEWS or perhaps KAT-TUN, be the next target? One could only hope (just kidding).

Yuu Shirota confined to his home

Actor, Yuu Shirota has also contracted influenza A and has been confined to his home. He will not leave until he is fully recovered. His agency announced and confirmed this via fax to all media publications.

Right now Shirota’s temperature is normal and should be headed to a full recovery.

Four days ago Shirota went to the hospital because he wasn’t feeling very good. He complained that his physical condition was bad and was checked to see if he had contracted the strain. After being diagnosed with the strain, his doctor told him to stay home and cancel all work activities until he is completely cured.

They keep coming one by one, we’re starting to think we need to just have a page dedicated to all the celebrities in that country that are infected.

Well I hope he listens to the doctor because it’s only been one day and another person caught this nasty virus.

Shota Yasuda contracts Influenza A

Kanjani∞ member, Shota Yasuda (24) has contracted the influenza A strain. Three days earlier (9/1), Kanjani∞ finished a show in Nagoya which was being filmed for DVD. Upon arriving back in Tokyo his temperature rose to 37°C and results from the strain tested positive. Today Yasuda is resting in his home and his temperature has dropped to 34°C.

Yasuda is currently filming the NHK drama, ROMES, that is scheduled to air on 10/15. Today (JST) is the fifth day of filming and because he can not participate in the shooting, the filming has been cancelled.

Fellow member Ryo Nishikido, along with other Johnny’s member Tomohisa Yamashita also contracted the virus in late August.

This adds to the growing number of people in Japan who have contracted this virus. There have been other celebrities who are infected, but there are many other non-celebrities who have been infected and died from the strain.

If you have the virus you need to keep away from everyone. That means do not go to work, and if your work has to halt production and/or they film the scenes without you in it, then that’s what should be done. You should not be made to go to work. This could have been prevented if Ryo just stayed home.

Now if Seira Kagami, who is rumored to be seeing Yamapi, gets the virus then that should ‘confirm’ and ‘clear’ any rumors. But then again, it could all be just one big coincidence.

What is the best way for this virus not to spread? Sit your butt home until it’s gone. Why ruin it for the rest of the country?

Pi and Ryo confined to their homes

Adding to the list of growing celebrities, Tomohisa Yamasita and Ryo Nishikido of NEWS, have both been diagnosed with the H1N1 virus. Johnny’s Entertainment sent out a fax on 8/31 stating that first Ryo had contracted the virus, and then today, Yamapi has contracted the virus. Both members have been confined in their homes until they recover.

Ryo who is currently filming a drama, “Orthros no inu”, will no longer be able to take part in the filming.  He still has un-filmed scenes for the 7th episode, with that being said, the production is looking for other alternatives and will decide what to do upon his condition.

Last month was the first month Japan has seen death by the swine flu. We stated earlier that 6 members of AKB48 had been diagnosed with the H1N1 strain as well, also Maximum the Hormone’s vocal, Ryo.

We hope they all recover, because we all know that if something happens to Pi and Ryo, well let’s just say, we all thought cassies are scary, you guys haven’t met Johnny’s fangirls.
