Without a doubt Johnny's will help out ^^

Ryuu here with some good news for Japan ^^

On March 15th, entertainment agency Johnny & Associates announced that all planned domestic concerts by their artists in March have been canceled. Instead, the transport and power unit trucks normally used for these live performances will be lent to disaster-stricken areas in Japan, free of charge.

In total, 18 performances by 6 artists have been canceled (including TOKIO, Tackey & Tsubasa, Hey!Say! JUMP, and Yamashita Tomohisa).

At every concert, Johnny’s uses several 10-ton transport trucks and a few electric power unit trucks. The agency has a contract in place with truck companies for these, but since the concerts have been canceled, they announced, “If it can help with the disaster relief in stricken areas, we are prepared to lend them out for emergency transport and supplementing electricity … [For example,] transporting material aid, and providing electricity to hospitals…

Food transport and power shortage are big problems at the affected areas, and Johnny’s says they will consider requests by local authority groups involved in the relief effort for the trucks.

Some fans may be gutted about the concerts (WHY?! it's for a good cause~) i don't know maybe those who've been looking forward to it for ages. but i don't know that just might be a few people.

^^ i know this post is only about Johnny's but i will also say most or all the other idols/ celebs are doing their best to help out. They've all been affected and may have lost a loved one. But. the amazing thing is that they aren't wallowing in self pity but are proactively moving on. (i hope)

sigh wish that this will be the last time in a long time we will hear about the radioactive mess that's happening == probably not. I hope everyone there to be safe
