Na minna like I said once "I'm going to write about MAD" ... I did haha
I'm taking my source from my knowledge XD on wiki and various sites.
I'm doing my own research so please don't take out~
I'm typing to start by presentation of members and after it's in the time.
so let's talk about MAD now
M.A.D. : Musical Academy Dancing
This band is a background dancers unit
The true basic members of MAD are (for most of them) old Jr for most of them,
the new generation of fans (gomen: most of you all XD) doesn't know them.
But here I will start wiz the September 2005's generation (rebegining) until today ^^ (I will try to up this page for each changes =D)
It's mix of
FM Tokyo :
Matsuzaki Yusuke, Fukuda Yuta, Kawamura Ryo, Tatsumi Yudai & Koshioka Yuki
Ex T of K.K.Kity and an Ex Jr Boys who made the supporting for Kis-My-Ft. until Kis-My-Ft2:
Takeuchi Kohtaro & Katoh Yukihiro
Various Jr who are (for me) good dancers as well:
Eda Tsuyoshi, Yamamoto Ryota (from A.B.C. Jr [band where from Ft2]), Hayashi Shota, Ikeda Yu, Maeda T.J. Hirotoshi
A Question? who left JE and came back because he wanted to dance:
One who left and who came back and who is again lost now, but it seems he is not a MAD anymore.
Some of them, before MAD's creation, were in a band created for the Arashi concerts.
(wiz others Johnny's Jr)
So the members are :
Maeda T.J. Hirotoshi
These boys are dancing for Tsubasa's concerts or backdance in TV shows like SC premium or Music Station and you can see also them at the Arashi's one and the Countdown.
Most of them are a little unknown, that is sad.
You have probably never heard some names, but we are going to change that ;)
Let's see those above wiz more details:
Eda Tsuyoshi: until 2006 he danced as ABC jr (with FT2), he is not really new in Jr, he joined in 2001.
He was all time in SC until the "transfert" in MAD end 2005.
Hayashi Shota and Yamamoto Ryota have +/- the same story.
The first to join was Hayashi kun debut January 2001
then Yamamoto kun, at the same time as Eda kun in Sept 2001
These 2, you can see them often in same band.
They were all the time on SC until the "transfert" in MAD, end of 2005 like for Eda kun, and in old Yax3 show (the time wiz J.J.Express wiz Matsumoto Kohei in >_<)
Yamamoto kun (and as classmate Tamamori kun) go to the Hinode chuugakou (-> http://www.hinode-s.ed.jp) . and his little brother call Yamamoto Kyota passes the open audition on Ya-Ya-yah, and was accepted as a student. however, he quit before he could become a Johnny's Jr.
Ikeda Yu, he looks discret, because it's true it's not easy to catch him in perf of SC.
but he was in SC all this time since end 2002,
he joined the same day as Tamamori Yuta (KMF2) and Akiyama Taiga (2nd MAD band).
This boy attented the same dance school as Senga Kento before JE.
He was btw 2004 and Summer 2005 in いけこたいな (Ikekotaina). He was the IKE for Ikeda
Maeda T.J. Hirotoshi: this boy aka TJ joined the same day as Okubo Akimasa (2nd MAD band) middle 2004. Same then Yu, you can catch him in perf of SC. This our Phillipin member ^^
Kawamura Ryo: for him I have to admit that except that he joined in 1997,
btw this time and 2002 I don't really have infos. But after that he was in FM Tokyo.
Fukuda Yuta: Fukuchan, this one joined debut 1998,
he was FM Tokyo. Before he was a MAD already, I mean in old generation. He was most showed before 2003 (I mean new SC stage)
and in old Hadaka no Shounen. He was mostly wiz Miyagi Shunta.
Matsuzaki Yusuke: he joined JE middle 1998 the same day as Tatsumi Yudai,
we can often find him in the same way than Fukuda Yuta like in FM Tokyo.
In the past he was a MAD too but not sure. If you have old Hadaka no Shounen (mean 2001 ~ 's one)
you can find him in the kitchen with Waragai Ryota and Uesato Ryota (FiVe) a trio of jokers and yakuzas haha.
Tatsumi Yudai & Koshioka Yuki : again 2 boys who are together since the begining.
The first one, Yudai, joined so like Matsuzaki middle 1998. The second, Koshy, joined the same day asFujigaya Taisuke and 2 others MAD, Takeuchi Kohtaro and Kato Yukihiro (also like Tsukachan, Kame, Jin and Yuichi), end of 1998 . They were btw 2000~2002 in ABC (Acrobat Boys Club) with the actual members (minus Kochi). They had to leave ABC. After that they were FM Tokyo and then MAD.
Kato Yukihiro & Takeuchi Kohtaro: these boys joined like Koshy and so on on end of 1998.
Kato was Jr Boys before, Takeuchi passed by BBF, BAD, BBD. In 2000 Koichi Domoto created J-support [K.K.K.ity],
he created the band, intoduced them in TV show and in his concert in Tokyo Dome with Private Heart as song.
K.K.Kity was a part of singer KKK and rollers/dancers ITY. During perf,
ITY made rollers and danced with Jr Boys wiz Kato Yukihiro, Fujigaya, Kitayama & Masuda [ and Maruno sama] ^^.
After the debut of NEWS. They ITY and Jr Boys danced together.
And after Kisumai formation, those boys danced as support for Kisumai until Kis-My-Ft2 formation, then they finished for MAD.
Noda Yuya: this boy have many band since he joined 1996 same day than Aiba Masaki.
He was BBB, BIG,... and already MAD in the past. He was in Question? as guitar man,
he annonced he left Jr, but after a time he was back in MAD because he was boring and joined back to dance (like before haha).
Waragai Ryota joined debut 1998 before Tatsumi Yudai and Matsuzaki kun.
He was a SAM (Secret Agent Man) a band wiz Nishikido Ryo, Hamanaka Bunichi and Goseki Koichi, etc.
He was also with Toshin Yoshikazu in ING (they are the 2 only of this band again there [if this one want well be back]).
He left in automn 2006 (+/- when Matsumoto Kota joined) He left Johnny's Entertainment in 2007
Let's contiue wiz the newbie now ^^
Matsumoto Kota joined the M.A.D. In 2003 Kota joined one day before Senga (KMF2). He lived from 3 to 5 years old in Hong Kong because of his parent's work.
He was btw 2004 and Summer 2005 in いけこたいな (Ikekotaina). He was the KO for Kota
During a short time, we talked of M.A.D. Older Brothers
and M.A.D. Young Brothers
But in Winter 2006 the 2 band has been reunited in one M.A.D. unit
New members added from Young Brothers was :

Takahashi Ryu joined in same day than Inaba and was in Jr BOYS before.
Yamashita Takumi joined JE on June 2003. He started in 2004 in first generation of J.J.Express then he went in Jr BOYS until spring 2006 and in winter 2006 he finished in M.A.D..
Because of his likeness wiz Kusano Hironori (ex NEWS) he got the nick name of Notti Jr.
Akiyama Taiga joined JE on December 2002. At this time he appears often in Ya-Ya-yah show. He was like Nikaido a Jr who appears to play at "games" or "acting play role". He appears too btw 2004 and Summer 2005 in いけこたいな (Ikekotaina) in which he was the TA for Taiga and entered in Jr BOYS just after that he cames in M.A.D.

He first apparition in Shounen Club was with Mou Kimi Igai Aisenai from Kinki Kids.
Fukushi Nobuki joined JE in 2006, and finished in M.A.D. in 2007. He looks like Toshin Yoshikazu (masato think so too it seems since he told him during a letter in Shounen Club) *since he joined I categorized him as Toshin Jr XD thanks Masato for supporting me in this idea XDDD*
