Yamapi and Ryo withdraw from NEWS
On October 7th it was announced that Yamashita Tomohisa and Nishikido Ryo withdrew from the group. Yamashita will pursue his solo activities and Nishikido will focus on his activities in Kanjani8.

NEWS will continue their activities with four members: Koyama Keiichiro, Kato Shigeaki, Masuda Takahisa, and Tegoshi Yuya.

Yamashita commented, “It will be a challenge all on my own from now on. There may be inconvenient or hard things which I have never felt before, however, I would like to strive in every project with the precious experiences that I received with NEWS.”

Koyama, who will stay in NEWS, expressed positively, “Although we will be going on different paths, the four members of NEWS will continue the legacy of the eight years we walked together.”

Nishikido, who belonged to both Kanjani8 and NEWS, revealed that the reason behind his withdrawal was that his schedule adjustments for both groups didn’t work well. He said, “Please continue to support this new NEWS with Koyama, Kato, Masuda, and Tegoshi.”

NEWS with only 4 members sounds like a bad idea. And it's crazy to think that they've been around since 2003! I still remember their first performances in various shows and Tego was such a baby at the time.

How will they share the lines in their future singles. Will Tego sing all of the solo parts?

But the good thing for me is the fact that now that Ryo is Kanjani-only maybe they'll get to do more stuff. I want more live DVDs!

I hope they release stuff as 4, I'll support them all the way.

And they will probably shares lines, at least I would think so, they all can sing, IMO.
