always a bittersweet with JE~  

Imagine how the day started with this awesome crack ListenRadio CM with KAT-TUN... then a few hours later, there was the buzz about the release of ♪ In Fact on 06/04 with the promise of a cool and fashionable KAT-TUN, charming to the core with a catchy melody and gorgeous dance moves... then you read further and realise;

  1. The VERY LONG AWAITED Kamenashi solo, is not happening (well it's not listed); and

  2. There will be a Katsumode DVD - but only 10, 000 lucky fans will be blessed with this from a lottery...

Sometimes, most times... JE is beyond any logical comprehension.

As I said there're still songs whose the name isn't revealed yet !
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on April 25th, 2014 12:08 pm (UTC)
True. But don't they usually write the solo upfront?

I am still hoping one of those untitled is it will be it.. but~ ugh

Just hope that one of the lucky 10,000 winners will post the DVD for the international fans to watch. And also keeping my fingers crossed that the unnamed songs does include Kazuya's PV.

YEAHH !!! As for me, as long as the title of the other songs isn't revealed, I won't lose hope !!!

it's a shame for Katsumode they should have put it with the countdown DVD ....but I think it's an another way to boost sales O_o maybe ??

As for Kame solo if he is really working on a surprise could it be that he ju^st doesn't have time to do it (or the consider Sayonara arigatou as his solo ??) or it will be the 23 single maybe his number

Anyway i don't know but i am glad they release something :)

My sis is in japan now so she will buy everything for me :D

Yes, Kame said he was working on a surprise on 20th of this month !!! And he said I not we (kat tun). Five days later, we have the single announcement.

*suspicious*

I read the j-web news this morning but I was still half asleep so I didn't think too much about it but yes I was disappointed nonetheles. Just to say, I still haven't place my order on the net and I'm planning to buy only 2 version out of 3.

I wasn't disapponted much by the lack of Kame's solo but by the lottery. It's just a(nother) slap to us international fans. I bet there'll be a reeeally tiny text which says that only japanese residents are eligible.
I thought too that it's a mean to boost sales, but selling the special dvd officially, even as first press limited edition of something, wouldn't work too?

I like 20102205k 's theory that kame will have his solo on single no.23. It'll be his style.
Only one edition contains a DVD so unless we have a song but not the video, his single is to be ruled out. (I won't mind if I'm wrong!)

Let's be happy for the upcoming 7 new songs!

Very likely the case. I remember the trouble I went through to get the special chain of love cd.

Plus 10, 000. It's like a losing battle already. People struggle to get concert and butai tickets much less 1 DVD from a mere 10, 000.

I thought too that it's a mean to boost sales, but selling the special dvd officially, even as first press limited edition of something, wouldn't work too?

And this would have been the sensible thing to do. I mean, I really don't get their logic. It's beyond me how they go about and do things.

and Kame's solo... and I was just reminded that we've been waiting for almost 2 years for this chain cycle to complete *sighs*

I guess we should still be happy to be getting something... I just wish JE could just make us FULLY happy for once!

I read about this before I went to bed yesterday >.> I was sad about Kame's solo, but hey, there's always next single if not this one~ As for the DVD, I'm not entirely sure what it is...but maybe someone will put it out online. It is too bad that it's lottery :/ I guess I'm used to things being lottery and out of my reach though so I'm not terribly devastated (I collect dolls and there are some dolls that are lottery or only for a month, so I guess I'm just used to disappointment lol!). I'm just excited that KAT-TUN is doing stuff honestly XD I'm pretty easy to please >.> Plus still holding out for the concert XD It's how I'm getting through school OTL
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on April 26th, 2014 03:18 am (UTC)
I know the dvd will be posted online but still... there's something great about holding an original of something... like your own copy... you own dolls.

It would be nice to see Kame's solo... and complete this 'chain' thing they were going on about.

Yes I'm glad KT is active again but still... it's nice to have full happiness XD

I guess once the concert dvd is released, we'll feel a bit calmer until the release date of In Fact...

orz JE!

Sucks right?

I even if one of the unnamed tracks is a Kame solo (There are four if i remember correctly, so one each? or four different styles of music Kame solos), there won't be a PV, because that/the dvd details are usually listed.

although looking at the details again, they've split the extra song them in a 3/1 way, so theres a small chance they are being VERY CRUEL and having a Kame solo without telling us yet, but much more likely it will be 4 group tracks. (God, I really want to believe the very unlikely case that we could still get a Kame solo on this now that I've seen that lol :/)

And the DVD just plain sucks. At least with the solo I can understand Kame's been busy and maybe they will wait to next release but the DVD? No excuses

lol 4 versions of Kame's solo~ now that would be history and may not be a bad thing but then even that would be crazy business and unlikely XD I'm still keeping fingers crossed until all track names are released ><

theres a small chance they are being VERY CRUEL and having a Kame solo without telling us yet,

I'm still hoping this is the case. I mean, it would be really cruel to hold out on his solo... I really want to know what's happening ;/

And definitely no excuses for the DVD... I mean really, no matter how much I think about it, I can't find a decent reason... though someone above just gave a probable reason~

Seelenlicht: KT circleseelenlicht on April 25th, 2014 06:39 pm (UTC)
They are idiots. Idiots. I do understand that this is an excellent way to boost the sales but they basically give 10.000 dvds for free without making any profit, but just hoping for higher single sales. Why. It would make so much more money just to release the fanevent as a normal dvd. (Of course there is a chance that they don't want to do it, because it's short and not worth enough to be released as a single dvd) But it's still stupid. And every idiot should be able to understand that this would piss fans off, and if I'm allowed to say this, right now is really not the best time to piss fans off after everything we went trough.

I don't even want to start ranting about Kame's solo. It's so unfair. We've waited almost 2 years for it, becausde everyone knew that he will be the last one and now that it's *finally* his turn, it simply doesn't happen. Yeah it's possible that he didn't have enough time, but we all know Kame, he always finds time for his work, so it's just stupid and doesn't make any sense.

I'm grumpy since I woke up today. So unfair.
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on April 26th, 2014 03:28 am (UTC)
I didn't even realise it's been almost 2 years waiting for Kame's solo... it makes this all even more annoying and disappointing.

And most definitely, the DVD would have good sales on it's own. It may even sell better than the single... or they could have attached it as a bonus to the LE of In Fact if they wanted to give something away *sighs*

Those people tend to be brain-damaged with things concerning KT. They couldn't just give us full happiness... argh

JE always makes ppl on edge and grumpy!

A little thing to enlighten your day : https://scontent-a-ams.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/t1.0-9/q75/s720x720/10320571_721593177883882_58273215363697446_n.jpg

Don't you think he looks like a lot like Kame ?

no.
He looks totally like his Junno self XD

I actually bought this mag yesterday and he's sooo gorgeous XD

So many mags are coming out with him ^^
Hikari Kiramekudaftdragon on April 26th, 2014 11:08 pm (UTC)
I pre-ordered the 3 CD set, but I'm wondering if maybe I should just buy the LE for the DVD. The fact that they're doing a lottery (for what I guarantee will be Japan only) for the Katsumode DVD is infuriating, especially for someone like me who worked to finally get a full video collection. I don't even want to know how much someone is likely to try and sell one of those things off for, if they even sell it. Plus I don't know if I could get my CDs in time to maybe see if my friend could enter the code for me. So it'll basically be the ONE thing I know I'm going to be missing *sighs*. I'm just hoping one of the lucky winners rips the thing and puts it online for us less fortunate to watch.

Only thing I can maybe hope for is in the future, if they decide to release a blu-ray version of the concert after the DVD (like they did with the one NEWS concert), they put the Katsumode footage on there as a bonus.

Also, yeah, it's also annoying that Kame's solo is still missing. Granted, he's been super busy. Part of me doesn't want to give up my current pre-order JUST in case that ends up being his "special project" he mentioned, and it ends up getting added to the First Press edition later on. This is JE, they do stupid shit, I wouldn't put it past them.
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on April 27th, 2014 10:43 am (UTC)
Yeah chances are this lottery will only make sense to people in japan who can make the lottery entry in time as well as too, JE tend to limit these things to the Japanese population. Annoying.

I still haven't ordered.

More than that, I'm eager to see what other songs will be released. I need the full scoop! I hate how they like to tease us and pull our legs *ugh*

In any case,I guess chances are, some kind soul will rip and upload to the internet for the rest of us to share in. It may just take a bit of time ><
faithiehannahfaithiehannah on April 30th, 2014 01:47 am (UTC)
I honestly couldn't agree more with your gif. Mostly because this kind of crap where JE doesn't release things(DREAMBOYS ANYONE??) or does something where only select holy few get something...pisses me the hell-o off.

Also I HAVE BEEN WAITING for Kame's solo. DESPERATELY, IMPATIENTLY, yeah it's great he's getting movies, but I still want a SOLO!
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on April 30th, 2014 12:35 pm (UTC)

I know right!

I think we're all still waiting on this 'surprise' of his that he teased us about.

and JE... ever the inconsiderate ;_:
