Okay so I haven't seen a thread like this before..So I decided to create one.
I have always wondered who do you guys think is the popular group out of Johnny's Entertainment? and if you want rank your favorites:

So for popular group:

I think in my opinion that Arashi is the popular group from Johnny Entertainment.

My Top Three:

1. Arashi- I love there songs for Stand Up!! and HYD 1 & 2 the opening theme is so catchy and i love it, my favorite members are Jun and Nino
2. NewS- I love Ryo and Yamapi and I like there new song good beat to it
3. KAT-TUN- I basically like them because of Kame..lol

Also I have also always wondered which group was introduce first to the public..in other words who has been out in the game the longest.


Tell us why you ranked them like this ..
Pls dont just post a list..add some short reasons. thanks. a simple list for a post WILL BE DELETED

hmmm eventhough I like News best, I would say KAT-TUN is the most popular group, but for most popular JE, it would be Yamapi, then Jin, Kame n Jun..(but i love Ryo) =D

My top 3:
1) News *RYOPI*
2) Kanjani8 *RYO*
3) KAT-TUN/Arashi

top 3:
1. KAT-TUN
2. NewS
3. TxT/Arashi

it's kinda hard to decide wether TxT or Arashi on the 3rd place..but I think older group like SMAP, TOKIO&V6 is more popular...

Popularity-wise.....

1) SMAP
2) KAT-TUN
3) KinKi Kids / NEWS

But it depends where you're coming from, really. KT and SMAP ranking ARE arguable, because KT fans are more visible on the internet, but SMAP fans might equal out if you count random people off the streets of Asia and what not (though some people just automatically think you're a SMAP fan when you're a Kimura Takuya fan. I don't know how that works... but heck, I guess it does..?). Just because we see and get exposed more to fans of these groups daily doesn't really mean there's necessarily THAT many out there.


MY top three...

1) V6
2) KinKi Kids
3) Arashi

In that order. ;] I'm more of a JE sempais lover.

the Most popular Group in Johnny's is SMAP. because eventhou they're already old, they're still one of those highest paid actors and people don't seem to get tired of them eventhou a lot of years has gone by.

2nd for me is Arashi.

3rd is Kattun. i've heard they have the most record breaking career most recently in Japan.

The most popular group from JE should be SMAP. They are experienced and have lasted the longest. They are known internationally as compared to the others.

For me, my top 3 favourite groups are

1. NEWS
2. Tackey&Tsubasa
3. KAT-TUN

i agree that it's hard to say which group in JE (that debuted) is most popular...depending whether they have more active/loud fans or they've been out longer. yea it's hard to say.

My Top 3:
1. NEWS
2. Kanjani8
3. Arashi and KAT-TUN

we are counting groups that have debuted or basically considered debuted right? groups not debuted that should be on my list is Question in #1 spot with NEWS.


In Order of Debut:
SMAP
Tokio
V6
Arashi
NEWS
KAT-TUN
Kanjani8

NEWS and Kanjani8 are unofficially debuted but most considerd them as debuted. i think since their cds selling are counted (on oricon) then i would consider them debuted. also there were two or maybe one other group that debuted before SMAP. i'm not sure if the order is exactly right so correct me if i'm wrong.

Yeah, definitely there's are A LOT of dai-sempais like Shounentai and Hikaru Genji and more that debuted before SMAP. Afterall, JE isn't just a "recent" thing.

You forgot KinKi Kids and Tackey & Tsubasa within the ranges of K8 and SMAP.

3. NewS - there was this song that I really liked but i forgot the name of it. :noclue

Popular group:


Hmm.. Kind of hard. Although my mind and heart is basically screaming "NEWS! CHOOSE NEWS, DAMN IT!", I'd have to say KAT-TUN is popular amongst JE. There's sooo many fans of them on the internet, I'm not even kidding! X_X They seem to be sooo popular but I'm not surprised by that though!!!!

My Top Three:


1. NewS
2. Arashi
3. KAT-TUN

From my point of view in overall, it's :

1. KAT-TUN
2. NEWS
3. Arashi

KAT-TUN is immense popular, eventhough it died down abit because of Jin's departure. They broke several records that others didn't :) So.. yeah.. you could say they are the most popular in overall

From the point of view now:

1. NEWS
2. Arashi
3. KAT-TUN

Why? NEWS is back again... and they're doing well? K-T seems to take a break now and doing some concerts. Hopefully preparing for Jin to come back.

2) KAT-TUN! - because Kame is all the reason i'll ever need to like them. HAHA

3) NEWS/ Kanjani8 - NEW's Cherish i think was their BEST and i also like kanjani8's songs. I love RYO and he's in both bands!

the answer to this question bases on age. the obvious answer is the group that has been around the longest cuz more generations would have heard of them. whos popular amongst this generation would be more of an appropriate question lol, which i would answer: kat-tun and news

I think the most popular group right now is Kanjani 8... I would say SMAP, but I think SMAP has by now gone beyond just Johnnies... they're more like the most popular pop group ever. But I think the popular group changes quite frequently.


My three faves:
1. ARASHI!!!
2. Kinki Kids
3. Kanjani 8/NewS

In order of popularity.. i'd guess:

1. SMAP
2. KAT-TUN
3. V6 or NEWS or ARASHI

But it's awkward comparing different generations.. since the longer they've been around, the more exposure they have.

but in this current generation/state

i'd say:

1. KT
2. SMAP
3. NewS


my PERSONAL would be

1. KT - cmon. akame. or, KAME, is really enough persuadin.
2. NewS - TEGOMASSSSSSS + ryo aha.
3. K8 - they're just an awesome group xP
4. Arashi

*although im not a fan of the sempais, only "got" into JE recently.

I think the problem here compared to the other subforums is users tend to just write the group w/o any reasons at all.

*I noticed*XD

Kattun~ mainly bcoz of Akanishi Jin and in all honesty their music is varied than some Johnnys group. And Tak Matsumoto composed their 1st ever single~lolz!

I have no idea about the rest and I couldnt careless~XD
But KT's singles are really a hit in Oricon so they're really popular.

If we're talking overall JE
SMAP is the most famous (no duh lol)

If we're talking right now, in Japan everyone definitely knows KAT-TUN. Especially after their debut they were EVERYWHERE--doesn't mean they're the most well liked but they're the most famous as of right now; especially with all their advertisements and pictures. And when Jin left EVERYONE probably knew about it! Perhaps everyone knows Jin O-o~

I'd say NEWS is too...but I think it's more of Yamapi who is very well known XD and MAYBE ryo~ and there's Takki...oh dear Matsujun...too many! Hmm Arashi is really well known though---

My personal top three:
KAT-TUN
NEWS
ARASHI

I'm not a great fan of Jpop, however I have heard Johnny's famous boy bands.

I think Kat-Tun is the most popular. I heard of their name before all others. Seemingly among other forums its the most talked about jap artists also.

For me

1. KAT-TUN
2. NewS
3. Kanjani8

KAT-TUN is definitely first for me since I actually know the names of all the members and can tell them apart XD. I love Kame and Jin. Akame! They're all really good-looking and talented. Love their music.

NewS is second for me. I know mosttt of their names. I love Yamapi and Ryo! And I also know Massu, Uchi, Kusano, and Koyama. I don't know the other two >.< I love their music though. They're cute.

Kanjani8 is third for me but I only know Ryo, Uchi and that Subaru? person. Yeah.. I don't know the members but I love their music. They're so crazy XD. Those Osaka boys.

I also like ARASHI I guess. They're alright. I'm not into them though even though they're good. They're popular but in my eyes I can't view them as besting KAT-TUN, NewS, or K8.
