Captain Koichi!

I wonder if Kanjani8 will be too busy with concert prep to participate. Gonna be hard to fill the Kansai side without them.

Maybe the Kanjuu will get a chance to shine. Or they'll bring in Okada?

I hope at least Nino shows up from Arashi, even though they're probably busy as hell. Also, Taichi and Nakai.

lol and if none of NEWS make it, I won't be surprised even if Tegoshi is one of the sportiest Johnny's.

Thanks for the translation!
