Official Produce 101 Japan Thread

Recommended Posts

The hosts are a bit of a mess in general. Fans were very upset after the first evaluation because they kept making sexual jokes in front of minors and questionable jokes towards the Korean trainees.

 

In other news, the finale will air on December 11 on TBS during prime time which is very good news. MAMA is a week earlier but I'm still expecting the top 20(?) to do something with the ceremony being held in Japan this year.

Yes, I heard about the fans being pissed with the hosts because of their jokes and it's completely understandable. Inappropriate and disrespectful jokes, not funny at all.

Happy about the news that they are broadcasting the final at prime time! About MAMA I was thinking the same but with the recent news and scandals surrounding the Produce brand in Korea I'm not so sure now, even though I would love to see the trainees performing there.

All the scandals surrounding the Mnet survival shows is a concern but it would still be a missed opportunity if they don't use MAMA to promote them since there are rumors that they want this group to be pushed outside of Japan too (though take everything with a grain of salt since they haven't made their plans for the winning group known as of yet). Have no idea if  the current Mnet and CJ E&M controversies will affect those plans tho (if they're true).

After watching the first two episodes I have to say I really like how they've edited the show so far, the drama they did show didn't seem forced, just boys cracking under the intense pressure. Also the trainers seem to be very helpful and competent. Everyone's super likable, reminds me of Idol Producer honestly ! (second time after the choice of center for the theme song, Ren's confidence really reminds me of Xukun's)

Idk I think probably the problem is the crew of the show because is not as if they didn't have in Japan music shows where GG and BG perform on daily a basis. Japanese fans complained about the camera work so I hope it will improve in future episodes.

They still have enough groups to give them some experience or many crews have that experience imo .... like JE, LDH, H!P, 46/48G and Avex groups. Unless Yoshimoto decided to have their comedy filming crew film this sjjsksks. I can understand if they dont know what to do with the focus cam tho. But focus cam in Keyaki game is decent as heck.

Tbh it was kinda annoying that during the performances they didn't film the right trainees during their lines, I couldn't see some of them at all. Also, they film the audience a lot and during the killer parts of the songs. 😞

Yea the crew just being unexperience ... Japan has many crew worked with heavy dance groups. Even Yoshimoto has two groups and they hired an unexperience fliming crew welp. I can barely take the focus cam of dance groups cuz everytime they move its BLUR SKKSJDH

Hahahaha true! I hope they improve or hire more people with experience. I didn't know Yoshimoto manages groups already. Which ones?

Btw sad news Koyama Shogo has withdrawn from the show

Kind of feel bad Kazuma got the place he did, since he was generally sitting towards the middle of the relevant elimination ranks before the actual elimination. Hopefully with phone numbers needed to vote now though the whole thing with people voting the lowest ranked trainees stops :x

Also since first elimination is done, figured it's time for a preliminary top 11, though I expect probably one or two of these guys to get the boot next elimination (relevant people aren't in any order outside of the top 3 being my personal top 3):
