Cryxine AKA Murr AKA Kuripon AKA Right now you're wondering how to pronounce Cryxine
Cryxine is a 21-year-old from Staten Island, NY. She currently lives in Minnesota where she recently graduated with a degree in Japanese.
Until a year or so ago, her main fandom was Hello!Project. Like Yoko, she likes the older ladies, claiming an interest in “golden age” Morning Musume members.
She was first introduced to the world of Johnny's through a drama called My Boss, My Hero. Here, much to her chagrin, I will point out that she fell in love with Tegoshi. Over Nagase. I mean, come on. Who chooses OMG-Is-it-a-girl-or-boy-Tegoshi over hot-hunk-of-man-sex-Nagase? End rant. At this point she became somewhat familiar with the group NEWS, although she wasn't a hardcore fan.
It was in May of 2009, when she was forced to be roommates with two major Johnny's fans that the conversion to Johnnyism began. After much poking/prodding, the pair convinced Cryxine to go with them to a Kanjani8 concert. She already knew Ryo and loved Japanese music so convincing her wasn't too hard. Needless to say, after that night, she was hooked.
I, Gwendy, would like to take sole responsibility for making her a Kanjani8 fan, but sadly I think It's Yoko's fault. Because like the saying goes – once you go black, you never go back.
Her favorite Johnnies consist of Maruyama Ryuhei, Yokoyama Yuu, Ohkura Tadayoshi, (and the rest of KJ8),
Gwendy AKA GwenGwen AKA PenGwen
Gwendy is a 20-something super-senior born and raised in Minnesota, dontcha know. English-major. TESL-minor. Part-time pharmacy technician. Graduating fall 2010.
I was baited into Johnny's by... dun dun dun Matsujun. I was a fan of the manga Hana Yori Dango and was told repeatedly by other fans to watch the JDrama version. I googled it, saw a picture of Jun as Domyouji, made this face DDD8 and wondered why they picked a fat cross-dresser to play Domyouji. After 3 or so episodes, I was all, "MUST MAKE OUT WITH DOMYOUJI". I was hooked on JunJun. When I learned he was in a boyband I told myself that I was too old for boybands and refused to watch any of his Arashi related stuffs.
I eventually ran out of Jun dramas and was forced to watch Arashi shows. It was all over then. When my eyes met the most gorgeous man to ever walk the face of the earth. Sakurai Sho. A God. A modern day adonis.
I discovered Kanjani8 in early 2008, and loved their music and crackiness. It wasn't until I saw them in concert that I truly fell in love with them. (In fact Yasu used to sorta bug me). And here we are.
My favorite Johnnies include: SAKURAI SHO, Yokoyama Yuu, Taguchi Junnosuke, (the rest are in no particular order) Imai Tsubasa, Maruyama Ryuhei, Shibutani Subaru, Aiba Masaki, Matsuoka Masahiro, Okada Junichi, Nakayama Yuma, Nagase Tomoya
