The group Number_i, consisting of Shiyou Hirano, Yuta Jinguji, and Yuta Kishi, has moved to TOBE. However, there are dark clouds hanging over their future…

Shiyoh Hirano and Yuta Jinguji announced on July 7 and Yuta Kishi announced on October 15 their transfer from the former Johnny’s office to TOBE led by President Hideaki Takizawa. With Kishi joining them, they formed a new group, and there were high expectations for their future activities. However, a number of uncertainties have surfaced regarding the future of Number_i.

The group’s future success had been anticipated since Number_i is a group of three members with both popularity and achievement,” said one of the members. However, allegations of ‘smelling’ Hirano-san and his choreographer and President Takizawa’s alleged throwing money to cabaret club girls have led to allegations that Hirano-san and Jingu-ji-san even go to cabarets. No matter how popular the three members are, many fans seem to have lost interest in them due to the scandals that followed at the timing when they had just formed the group” (entertainment writer).

The other party of Shiyoh Hirano’s alleged “scent” is dancer and choreographer RIEHATA, and it is surprising to hear that the uproar was triggered by their pair coordination and collaborative dance videos posted on Instagram. In addition to this, there have been numerous other rumors on the Internet, such as matching sweatshirts and earrings, that fans are not at ease.

In addition, Hirano and Jinguji’s comments in a past fan club member video raised suspicions that the two may have been going to a cabaret club that President Takizawa is close to. The two were also suspected of going to a cabaret club that is a close friend of President Takizawa. The fans were disillusioned by the allegations, saying, “Regardless of the facts, I wish they would consider the feelings of the fans more and act accordingly,” and “It would be terrible if they were making fun of women in their fan club videos.

The furore surrounding Number_i did not end there, however, as the logo released by Number_i closely resembles that of the popular rock band “The BONEZ,” sparking a debate on social networking sites.

However, TOBE released a statement on November 20 on its official website regarding the group’s logo, noting that it had reached an agreement with The BONEZ and that it would continue its activities using the current logo.

The group’s logo is now in the process of being renamed “Number_i.” “The firestorm that has been going on for so long has finally died down. It’s time for the three members of Number_i to “get on with it! On the other hand, I don’t know if these incidents had any influence, but Hirano, Jinguji, and Kishi have not appeared in any dramas, movies, or other major productions at present. IMP. and Hiromitsu Kitayama, who also belong to TOBE, have not attracted much attention from non-fans, and the situation continues to be quite difficult.

(See above, entertainment writer) Even if that were not the case, the Japanese boy group scene is currently saturated. With the constant industry gossip, the general public may have lost interest in them. Even if they release new songs, it will be difficult for them to maintain their buzz if they continue to receive little media exposure. The timing for Number_i’s full-fledged launch may be when they are back in the limelight again after appearing in a national production.
