Being a fans of great comedy and not grounded take of boy bands, i hope this one will be more Binan Koko (which i've been enjoying very much) and less Shounen Hollywood (which was rather a chore to sit through). After all, letting the dudes rub each other the wrong way, crack some jokes, make things explode, ham things up several notch, and get very little done is what makes most all-dudes shows very fun to watch.


I agree! I hope it's more cheesy and light hearted!

Ahhh, I'm excited!

I think I've reached a new personal low: While looking at the cover image, judging by each character's hair and face, I was already imagining their personalities... There better be someone with glasses in it, though.
