ah! I see it!!! :wub: Thanks Ena sweetie! awesome! :)

hahhaha...and I remember the "Yuu-chin" part in Spirits. That was during the MC part where he was asking how come everyone had a cool nickname and he wanted one, too.

Oh my favorite Eito is such a camera whore, i admit it........but I love him just the same.

what can I say about Yoko:
01. he's a great host/MC ~ the other being Hina
02. he's the black ranger from Kanjani8's "Eito Rangers"
03. he gets really grumpy sometimes but it's okay, who doesn't?
04. he appears to be really outgoing onstage, but in reality, he can be pretty quiet backstage
05. he pays the tuition expenses for his two younger brothers with the money he earns
06. he is known as: "Yokoyama Yuu, Yokoyama Yu, Yokoyama You, Yokoyama Kimitaka (real name), Yoko, Yokocho, Yuu-chan, Kimi-kun, Yu-chin, Black Ranger"
07. he tries really hard to be funny....and sometimes fails. XD
08. every now and then, he complains that the other members all know how to play instruments ~ so you can see him playing the triangle or the tambourine during concerts
09. I forgot which Junior said this, but he claimed Yoko to be the worst dancer
10. some people think he can't sing, but he tries, ("Fantastic Music" and "Wonder Boy" = GREAT SOLOS!!!)
11. I find it very endearing when he refers to Ryo-chan as "Dokkun"~
12. recently, he spent a large amount of money on his mother and brothers for a trip to Hokkaido~
13. he's the OLDEST member of Kanjani8 (born May 9, 1981) ~> therefore, making him one of the Ossans! LOL
14. he's part of the Eito-subgroup "Sankyoudai" (3kyoudai) where he usually writes the lyrics, Yassan composes the music & plays the guitar, and Baru sings.
15. had a successful series of solo concerts that took place last month
16. suggested that a Christmas tree be placed in Shochikuza theater (Osaka) during the month of December
17. has a pouty bottom lip
18. looks better with shorter hair w/o his roots showing (my personal opinion)
19. found out his name was changed from "Kimitaka" to "Yu" while watching the rolling credits of a show he participated in
20. loves eating (actually, ALL members of K8 loves to eat!!!!)
21. writes the scripts to the Eito Ranger scripts (aiiiiii, can't imagine the 131 scripts he had to write for the 47 Prefecture Tours)
22. I first really took noticed him in the Tokyo Jrs vs Kansai Jrs special + Junior Fight IV clip
23. was known as "Yuuko" in the "7 Okan" segment from K8's old variety show, "Honjani"
24. shows that he used to host with Kanjani8: J³Kansai, Urajani, Mugendai no Gimon, Suka-J, Honjani
25. shows that he is currently hosting with Kanjani8: Mucha Buri, Janiben
27. is a pretty good actor, he's pretty much the main reason why I didn't give up watching "Yukan Club" (also, give "Kemarishi" and "Haikei Chichiue-sama" a chance!)
28. can usually be found on covers of "Myojo", "Popolo", "Wink Up", "Duet" monthly alongside the rest of his band members

and so much more, but I'll end it here at 28 because it's a good number (EIGHT!)~

you can find downloads of Yoko and K8 here

Woaahh!! I think I know only one third of the 28 points you posted here!!!

He really grew up in my mind after knowing that he pays tuition fee of his younger and cares for his family!!!
Poor Yuu-chin, coz during Zoom-in (kanaa :unsure:), he mentioned that he tried other jobs because he had doubts in his career as entertainer and it was quite hard for him as he was doing minor works.

As for his jokes, I didn't get the understanding, but during Excite! concert where they usually MC, Yoko compared Subaru to something and every Eito member was LTAO (changed version of LMAO) and he himself told, Aaah, chigau ka!!! Kawaiii, Yuu-chin!!! :wub:

It's gonna make a loooong thread if I write back, so yamemasu...

awwww, *hugs* it's okay hun~ I noticed that usually people knows the least about Hina, Yoko, and sometimes Maru. There are SO many Ryo and Subaru fans out there~ XD and a growing fanbase for Yassan and Tacchon. and then of course, Uchi had a large fanbase before his suspension and it grew even more after......and of course with the propaganda of "RyoUchi" :wub:

if anything, I would say the ones he cares most about would be his family members with Kanjani8 at a close second. :) About him wanting to give up......that was true. It was circa 2001 right after the September 11 attacks and a lot of Kansai Jrs were left with a lot less to do. In fact, I think the one who took it the hardest was probably Subaru because he was at the time one of the most popular juniors, "Takki of the East, and Subaru of the West" (or was it the other way around? LOL~ don't remember anymore).

I don't get his jokes a lot of the time.........but I always crack up because I love the faces everyone else makes while they're laughing and guffawing!! I haven't watched "Heat Up" or "Excite" in ages so your post is definitely going to motivate me to watch them when I get home later tonight. :) Especially "Excite" just because of Uchi's presence. XD

i find these two to be the most helpful (for me at least) for updates and news of K8:

Awww, thanks, Joanna!!! :wub: Keep posting things about Yoko, ne!!! coz he deserves it and he's THE funniest one within Eito members...XD XD

That famous expression of Subaru and takki ~~ Takki from East and Subaru from West (was it correct), coz Baru mentioned it during Shokura Premium and was quite sensitive about that ne!! XD it was kinda competition between them about who's the one, ne!!! XD but Baru was, is and will be really THE best singer among Jrs.... :lol

Will check out the forums and LJ!!!! XD XD

Last summer when Eito was in Utaban Yoko said that the reason he was given a stage name was that Johnny thought Kimitaka was too difficult, and that "Yuu" possibly came from the fact that Johhny always calls everyone "you". Apparently Johnny always calls him Yoko, though, and the Utaban host then said that he should be Yokoyama Yoko... or Yoko-yoko. I think Yoko-yoko sounds like a monkey, and therefore really suits him :P

Despite the fact that I am not into this whole pairing thing, one of my favourite Yoko-yoko moments is from the Janiben Okinawa special... When Hina says there's a list of things to do so the members can choose what they want, and Yoko says "I want you."

(Oh and Subaru totall pwns Takki in every possible way... in my opinion anyway)

Guys, you made me more interested to see that Janiben and what I understood about that Kana-chan is that HE's transvestite and he's been invited to that Janiben...:lol

Guessing from screencaps, Kana-chan was abusing our precious Ryo-chan and Yoko has been having fun... Ahhh, why downloading takes so long time nowadays??? :cry:

HOLY MOLY.......................was that hotness or what?? Leather and dark denim-clad Yokocho nearly gave me a nosebleed!

I was planning on watching it for both Sho & Yoko, but I found myself looking forward to any and all scenes with Yoko.

The only reason I'm watching is for the guy right in my avatar as Sho didn't impress me much 8)

Did anyone else see him in Koishite Akuma? For me, he was the only good thing about that drama, and they only had him in one episode....ah~ Yoko is sooo good at playing evil characters even though he's so cuddly in real life.
