Update May 14, 2014:
So the old stuff was deleted because I want to make sure that you guys are not confused by the changes. The past few days were quite confusing for me because some current hosts were unsure if they wanted to leave or not and I had to get new hosts to come on the show to replace some of them. Anyway, that’s not for you guys to worry, I’m just clearing what I wrote in the past and making all these new changes clear.
1. Starting next month, Manjima (from our sister show MTI) and Stephen (new guy) will begin to host with Sandra and Tim. Sandra will co-host with Manjima while Tim will co-host with Stephen. You can find information about Manjima on our sister website at mymti.org (her profile will be transferred to this site on June 1) while Stephen’s profile will be ready on this site by June 1.
2. Stephen and Manjima will be given the opportunity to present their top 6 favorite Japanese songs from the past 6 years as part of our summertime specials which will still be running from this month til the end of August, on the weeks that a regular Japan Top 10 episode is not released.
3. As part of the summertime specials, a music video countdown will also be made! We cannot give into too much information about this as nothing has been determined and finalized yet, but I’m hoping to get one music video countdown done as part of our summertime specials.
I would recommend you guys to also check out our schedule page on our site as it makes a summary of what I written above: http://jtop10.jp/schedule/
Again, please forgive us for bringing so much confusion on these changes. It’s been quite overwhelming the last few days with all these changes since even the hosts leaving do not know if they really want to. But here’s one promise we’ll bring to you guys. We’ll continue to bring you guys the biggest, latest J-Pop hits on a regular basis and continue to do what we did in the past.
*note, I mentioned previously we’re doing a name change to J Top 10, not happening anymore, we’re sticking with Japan Top 10, but we’ll be debuting a new logo soon.
