lol... I can't help but laugh at how dorky they look!
and I can't get over the way Tatchan fits his hand on his hip... not to mention Maru's pose >.<

Congrats to KAT-TUN on leading 1st day sales: 70,581 on the Oricon!

Well we will see what happens tomorrow with the sales...
I hope that won't drop that much after the first day.
Anyway...I'm happy ^___^

The gif is just too cute. And yesss...especially uepi in the end <3 Looks totally diva like ^___^

i'm going to a Japanese restaurant today with friends...And do you know what? I just waaant to have some ebi.

oh shrimp tempura is nice :-)
be sure to get some warm sake with that too ^^

I'm really hoping sales continue to rise through out the week... and KT really did put in a bit of promotion this time around so I'm looking forward to a good week's sale :-)

I hope you slept well last night without fretting much >.<

Uepi will always be a diva... it's in his every action... Kame too... they are so alike!

and I really need to watch Yamanade again... I think Kame loves toru sushi I think... I remember this from the NWP promos :-)

Re: we are kat-tun !
XD The restaurant was fully booked XD
In the end we went to kentucky fried chicken >__<

Well yeah...you saw the sales. Especially today's. I think they will be lower than ttl's in the end of the week. But I seriously gave up to sulk about it.
It's not like anything will change in the end,

Oh I'm just downloading the series in HQ...(I had it before, but after the crash of my external HD I only managed to download the MQ files...)
But yeah, you should rewatch it, cause I believe that you will like it more after watching it a second time...(It was the same with me >__<)

Re: we are kat-tun !
from japanese food to kfc... what a downward turn of events >.<
is japanese food popular by you?

I did see today's sale.... hmmm shit man! they fell to second place. In the end, I really don't know... maybe they need some other shows or bangumi as a form of promotion...

Arashi has so many and they all seem to happen during prime time...

While Dame is really good for us... I'm afraid maybe only current fans will stay up this late to watch. if only they could get something done during prime time!

Re: we are kat-tun !
Well it wasn't such a waste in the end. Cause I still managed to eat something kame related ;-)
Crazy fangirl is crazy but who cares.

Mhh yeah but tbh KDY has even a bitter air time than cartoon had back than (cause even though it's airing later, it's still a Friday, so people don't have to get up early on the next day)
Ah I don't know. It's just frustrating because you don't even know the cause...or the possibility to change it.
You're waiting for a improvement but it just...doesn't come.

The problem is just that...KT has to build up an utterly new Japanese fanbase now cause of their more or less "new" image (especially since 2010) their music also changed and i much less rock than back than. So people just have to watch at them with different eyes and accept the change.
But for this you have to make lots of promotion so people will have a chance too see them...
But they don't got any chance to show themselves...and this is the problem :-(
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on September 14th, 2012 02:02 pm (UTC)
Re: we are kat-tun !
you're right about rebuilding the fan base because KT has obviously lost lots of fans since the group formed.

and it really is frustrating... not knowing what the problem is so can't really fix anything...

and it's not like they are not popular... I mean when watching a bagumi they are always introduced as top / popular idol group... then why are sales so poor?!

maybe it really is the demography of fans. young fans, broke fans, immature fans who don't see the need to purchase something if they can get it free, or maybe there are just people who more enjoy how they look than their actual music.

and I really think that MS and all these performance occur too late... too close to the release date! they should be earlier to serve their purpose of promoting.
Seelenlichtseelenlicht on September 14th, 2012 02:21 pm (UTC)
Re: we are kat-tun !
Yeah tbh this is also one of the problems of this previous image they had.
The "Bad boys" attitude is nice and funny...and sells well, so long as the group is still in their teens/early 20.
The Japanese fans were CRAZY over them in they for debut days and some years after it.
But they all are older now, facing the 30s line more or less.
So this image just absolutely doesn't work anymore. Especially because it doesn't fit them at all now. So from the promotional point of view their managers have to come up with an utterly new image for them (I'm not talking about that they have to change their personalities or their attitude, it's just that they have to change the way they're presenting them to the public)
But then again...they just don't get the chance for this.
At least not that much as it's needed.

They haven't even promoted the single in their own bangumi properly *sighs* There would be tons of ways to do it better.
And you're absolutely right that all these performances are just too late. I mean come on. Japan lovers in when? Sunday?
It should haven been aired LAST week and not this.
I seriously don't know what the fuck their managers are thinking and if they are thinking at all.

The demography of the fans is another point...but in the end I also don't understand why the heck their fanbase is so damn young. WHY? It's not like they are 20 anymore, so why is the majority of the girls still in their teenage days?

About the "popular idol" stuff. They are still top idols. The sales are awesome if you compare them with the sales of normal musicians. But if you compare them with other Johnny's...it's just horrible.

I hope KDY will cheer me up ~ T___T
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on September 14th, 2012 02:42 pm (UTC)
Re: we are kat-tun !
yeah, they are top idols but sadly sales really don't reflect this for an idol :(

the managers or promoters are obviously not doing a good job. I mean as part of the same agency, I think KT could also appear on vs arashi or some other sempai group's bangumi...

and the young age, I really don't know. I was surprised when 13 and 14 year olds are big KT fans since I had expected their fan base to between 20-30 (the majority).

Anyway, this is another reason I'm glad Junno was able to do the choreo for FnS, he'll now get some more recognition and folks will see just who KAT-TUN is made up of.

I really want another Mouse Peace too... just something for everyone like Kame has dream boys and gets even more exposure... it would help, I believe.

Anyway, just saw the MS performance and LOVED it!

it's really a cheerful song and even watching the guys singing makes it even more beautiful... and Kame's hip thrust first thing in the perf will never get old lol, he's really a natural at that!

I want to watch minsta... their talk is always interesting :-)

Re: we are kat-tun !
"I had expected their fan base to between 20-30 (the majority)."
I know right? I mean...I am also very young but this is seriously because I was always flailing about people who are way older than me. When I saw younger bands like HSY I KNEW that most of the guys were older than me but I still had the feeling that they could be my younger brothers X___X

I also have the feeling that they should appear more often as a group and not split like always...

Will watch it now >___<

oh no!!!!!
can't you buy online?

but that's great news that Koki's edition got sold out :-)

I am glad I bought it over a month ago... I always fear l.e versions getting sold out >.

Re: we are kat-tun !
Sorry but may I intrude in the chat
I am a bit affraid about all this sold out thing in HMV and Tower Records this time they limited the stock according to the demands until a certain day right ?

Umh don't if it was a good idea cause if it's sold out everywhere where people can't buy it anymore no ?
Please tell me what you think about it
Thank you

Re: we are kat-tun !
umh i didn't go to Nagoya but I found only like 5 of TTL (all editions) in TR in Akihabara and i was surprised compare to other jonnys singles as there were way more of their last singles
Maybe you should try book off ?
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on September 12th, 2012 01:28 pm (UTC)
Re: we are kat-tun !
yeah I've heard about this bit too which I thought was really odd and not wise at all.
the LE version is also sold out on amazon jp. so I'm really not sure if this is a sales strategy or what since good business stems when the demand is higher than supply.

but I hope they restock soon... I think this has happened before with another single, and the online stores did a restock because demand was high.

I think this was last year ~

btw, I think I read that Towers was also sold out... have you checked? when can you buy your copy?
20102205k20102205k on September 12th, 2012 01:39 pm (UTC)
Re: we are kat-tun !
Well I can't buy it now cause i don't have any money anymore as i just came back from Japan lol so I wait. But in Japan i saw that KAT-TUN stuff were not really numerous in stores like (TR or HMV) cause i think the stock they have is really low compared to other artist the same goes for sale I didn't saw one of KAT-TUN but a lot of other jonnys so I don't know if this plan is really that good ...

I bought my stufff in book off and completed my colection lol
So it happened befor last year ? for which single ?
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on September 12th, 2012 05:34 pm (UTC)
Re: we are kat-tun !
I really can't remember for which single it was for. but cd japan had a restock.

and I can only hope KT things were plentiful as others in the stores only because they are fast sellers and nothing more >.

Re: we are kat-tun !
Sorry to randomly crash into a convo ^^; but CD Japan has Koki's solo version still in stock, and possibly Shinseido, if that helps :D

I know how much it sucks to track down missed copies. Did that with the BIRTH single after they all sold out everywhere. Eventually got them, but had to pay way too much money for them x.x

Re: we are kat-tun !
XD I saw that!! And I squealed when the two of them were in the same frame >w<

And Ueda was all trying to be charming and handsome-y for his Junno and the guy spoils it all by pointing out his wardrobe malfunction (or just for an excuse to touch him >w<) Ah I love them!! >w< <3 <3 <3

I hope so too but FnS is a good song so I'm hoping for the best.

and btw, congrats on your winning a copy :-)

I admire how you always take part in these events. I'm never confident enough to think about entering but I did sign up the Shige pic because that shop photo of him is gorgeous!

Re: we are kat-tun !
Thank you :D I'm super happy I won this time around since I couldn't buy any copies this time!!

I do usually take part in competitions, though honestly, I never think I'll actually win anything, I'm just so surprised and happy that people would run these kind of competitions for other fans, just to do something nice, that I want to help make it a successful competition to show my appreciation :)

:D That Shige picture is very handsome *__*
Hikari Kiramekudaftdragon on September 12th, 2012 09:25 pm (UTC)
LOL, Music Lovers was awesome. Was so happy to not only see Fumetsu no Scrum live for the first time, but Sweet Chain too (but it was too short T-T )! They were just so cute.

Hoping their sales stay strong. This was a really great release, and the Regular Edition has a good B-side with RADIO, so it's still worth buying it even if you missed the Limited Versions (although missing out on the PVs would kinda suck).

I'm hoping my CDs get here soon. Shipped them EMS, but they still have to go over an ocean and most of the way across America, lol. I promised myself I wouldn't watch any of the PV stuff til they got here...although I did preview all the songs already.

I'm hoping that my copies arrive by Friday... I used EMS service as well... I just always want to get it as fast as could even though by the time they reach me, I would have had copies of them already lol

this single is really awesome! I can honestly say, all the songs, main and b sides are absolutely great! even though they are not rock songs that I mostly like.

and I agree with the sweet chain bit. I must have replayed that particular part countless times and then for the day, that's all that was in my head.

it's really a song well done!

BTW, did you read the post where they translated the part about Tat-chan saying that since Junno did the choreography, he will try his best to not mess up? And then Junno points out his mistake? <(^_^)> Tat-chan~
