Hideaki Takizawa‘s TOBE continues to grow its roster! First came Ken Miyake, then Sho Hirano and Yuta Jinguji. It has now been revealed that more former Johnny’s are moving to the company as well.

All seven members of the Johnny’s Jr. group IMPACTors have moved to TOBE, in a move that has long been rumored. The announcement came via a YouTube livestream on TOBE’s channel. The group will now be know as IMP.

“July 14 will be an important day for us,” Sato Arata said. “We will do our best while following in the footsteps of our dai senpai.”
