Johnny's Jr. NOW  
As most of you know or notice, I am not really into Johnny's and Associates, but I'm still concerned about how are the juniors doing right now. It's really hard to catch because I dont know where to start looking for information. What I know for sure is that Bakaleya gumi is now Six Tones, but what about others? Is Mr. King vs Mr. Prince a permanent group? Is Aran Abe still with Travis Japan? Are there new groups to watch out for?

I know nothing is certain when you're just a junior and it's worse if you are not in a group.

I searched for Johnny's Jr. on wikipedia to see a list of junior groups and I got to see:

MADE (formed 2008)- Inaba Hikaru, Fukushi Nobuki, Akiyama Taiga, Tomioka Kento

They武道 (formed 2008)- Eda Tsuyoshi, Yamamoto Ryota, Hayashi Shota, Takahashi Ryu (ex mem)

ふぉ〜ゆ〜 (formed 2011)- Koshioka Yuki, Matsuzaki Yusuke, Fukuda Yuta, Tatsumi Yudai

Snow Man (formed 2012)- Fukasawa Tatsuya, Sakuma Daisuke, Watanabe Shota, Miyadate Ryota, Iwamoto Hikaru, Abe Ryohei

Travis Japan (formed 2012)- Nakada Hiroki, Kawashima Noeru, Shimekake Ryuya, Morita Myuto, Yoshizawa Shizuya, Nakamura Kaito, Miyachika Kaito, Kajiyama Asahi, Abe Aran (ex mem, omggg :( )

Mr. King vs Mr. Prince (formed 2015)-

東京B少年 (formed November 2016) Tokyo B Shounen- Fujii Naoki, Nasu Yuto, Ukisho Hidaka, Iwasaki Taisho, Sato Ryuga

Goodness! I barely know the newer and younger juniors. I believe more and more groups will be formed later on. Even those in  group will still be mixed up. But I'm really rooting for Snow Man, Travis Japan, and SixTONES. Good luck guys!

Can I fix a thing?
They武道 was disbanded in November 1st, 2016 and it was created 宇宙Six (Uchuu Six) : Eda Tsuyoshi, Yamamoto Ryota, Hayashi Shota, Hara Yoshitaka, Meguro Ren.

And it looks like Classmate J months ago was split in Classmate J (Iwasaki Taishou, Konno Taiki, Matsui Minato, Wada Yuuki, Matsuo Tatsuru)and Noisy Guys (Takahashi Yuuto, Sasaki Taikou, Igarashi Reo, Fujii Naoki) but I'm not sure about it, I don't really follow young juniors...I just stepped on a magazine page by chance searching for other stuff.

About your questions...
What I knoe about Mr. King vs Mr. Prince is that it was formed for supporting high school baseball tournament and they released a song for that sake...
Later they stopped to perform as Mr. King vs Mr. Prince and started to perform just 3-nin Prince alone and 3-nin Mr King alone.(basically it split in two)

About Abe Aran...
He was moved in Love-Tune permanently and is no longer a Travis Japan member.

About the new groups... I have no idea if there's some worth to be followed, I guess it depends on the taste of people, but new jr kids aren't like at old times...
I follow only dance family groups (ふぉ〜ゆ〜 , MADE, 宇宙Six) who are almost more pro-dancers than juniors (also because of their age) and Snow Man so I can't help with young kids groups, sorry.

Have a nice day~

HI! Thank you so much for the info! This helps a lot.
I barely know newer juniors and what are they up to now. I just wanted to check on them for a bit, so thank you very much.

I'm kinda sad they moved Aran from Traja, I was an Arachika shipper.

Doumo, I just barely know them from shokura/twitter/magazines but I have real news only about the ones I follow...

Ah yeah... I was sad too but because I liked LOVE-TUNE as a "Band" now it doesn't have any sense for me as group... (I hoped in a new version of "Question?")

(Sorry for the superlate reply)
