Fandom and it's stupid Feels  
that enough

As it were, KAT-TUN won’t be doing the opening song for Kame’s new drama, ‘Tokyo Bandwagon’. Instead, a temp. duo unit consisting of Kame and his co-star, Koji, called ‘Hotta-ke Band’ will do it… anyway, the news is all over the place like Tokyohive, if you need more info.

And yeah... maybe I’m slowly starting to understand why people ‘leave’ fandom.

It’s the pressure… the pressure of not knowing what the heck is going on… so they save themselves the misery and angst and just leave for the greener grass on the other side (if they can find any).

And yeah I’m into Kame and all (duh) and I’m excited for the drama but I just can’t be happy about this new single, ‘Sayounara, Arigatou’ to be released in November under jstorm. I mean, what the heck is this duo unit about? Does JE think that with each member actively doing their solo assignments that everyone would be happy and to hell with KAT-TUN as a group?

Seriously, JE… stop it, already! That’s enough!

It’s unsettling. This news leaves a bitter taste in my mouth… BUT hey, don’t get me wrong! There’s no doubt about it… I’m not one of those people who can’t stand the pressure. As long as there’s KAT-TUN as a group, I will always be a HYPHEN. Maybe I’m a masochist, but I rather think about it as happier days are coming, and that they will be GREAT!

And on a different/happier note, I knew it all along... but after this week's episode, I've confirmed my HUGE crush on Roronoa Zoro #One Piece

Current Mood: crankycranky
Current Music: gold by kat-tun

This reminds me of the Shuji&Akira decade and the initial fallout from some fans over something that wasn't in kame's ability to control.
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on September 22nd, 2013 11:34 am (UTC)
oh I pray we still don't have fans like that. Kame hasn't done anything wrong here (just like then), so the attack should be on JE.

I totally agree with everything you said

"JE… stop it, already! That’s enough!" << you should've written those in capitals ^.^

and as you said , only if we knew what's going on this news wouldnt be as bad as it is .. it hurts really .. not knowing what's happening to them ..

btw, one of the girls said that his co-star joked about KT spliting up?! if that's true, then that's a very lame and stupid joke ...
I'm not believing it but he should'nt be joking about something like that .. people's feelings are involved here...

kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on September 22nd, 2013 11:37 am (UTC)
IKR! We just want to know or have an idea what's going on because speculation can never be good.

and about the co-star... maybe he doesn't even know what's happening with KT (since I just heard he said he wrote the song for KT, not knowing he would be singing it himself)and was just kidding, but yeah knowing what we know or don't know, that comment is bound to piss anyone off *sighs*

we're in a twisted love story with KT... the kind of angsty romance ><

I'm agree with you.
I want KAT-TUN not only Kame.
Where is them?
It already missing two singles with two solos (Ueda and Kame)..
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on September 22nd, 2013 11:39 am (UTC)
IKR! I was really... well still am really looking forward to Ueda's and Kame's solos.

But now, so many things are happening... and at the same time NOTHING at all... makes you just want to tear your hair out and shout!

I was thinking the exact same things when I heard about that temporary unit >< but I'm assuming it's just for the drama promo and stuff.

Then I kind of remembered in one of their group interviews...I can't remember when exactly..I think it was earlier in the year asking about what their plans were. There was some talk about focusing on their solo activities wasn't there? Maybe that's exactly what their doing, only Hyphens didn't really think they'd take it that seriously. The boys are off doing their own thing and growing and I'm sure when their back they'll be able to bring a whole lot more to the plate as a group ^^

That's all optimistic thinking I guess but that's what I think's happening for now. As long as we have Junno reassuring hyphens through his blog (that angel TwT) I think we'll be okay ^^ But heck we deserve a huge ass reward from them for being this patient =.= (JunDa PV! TwT why did they stop at the JunDa PV!!)

EDIT: Okay..i just read this 'Tamaki wrote the song and lyrics. He wrote it with KAT-TUN's image in mind because he didn't expect to sing it with Kame.' from the KT FB page and...now THAT doesn't sound comforting... >_< um...well tbh if KAT-TUN did sing that sound I'd be worried either way because of the title 'Sayounara Arigatou' but still....GDI JE!!! STAPH!! I Just want a badass new KAT-TUN single!! (and that JunDa PV ._.)

JunDa PV! TwT why did they stop at the JunDa PV!

hehe it's a plot against JunDa giving us some well needed loving >< Junno is probably throwing a tantrum not appearing in his Uepi's pv *____* at least we can joke about this part... JunDa always to the rescue...

And yes! I keep hoping that Junno will update us in whatever way like he normally does in his serial... what a lovely soul he is <333

I heard about Koji writing the song for KAT-TUN... but even him saying that makes me a bit sadder and more pissed off since obviously, they were supposed to do it, so WHAT HAPPENED?????

and I don't know if to smile or whine about this::: well tbh if KAT-TUN did sing that sound I'd be worried either way because of the title 'Sayounara Arigatou' because there's truth in it and it's too close to home with so many people thinking this... ugh... the trouble of life!

I do remember the interview about them wanting to focus on solo activities but really, if that were the case then they wouldn't have planned concert dates, single with cover and all and even have someone write a song... it's all too fishy! JE is really playing up in their asses with our KAT-TUN!!!

Oh, now I need some JunDa!

I am in shock really I love Kame but for KAT-TUN sake i would have prefer he didn't sing at all exept with his member. I am confirmed on my hiatus idea and i hope it will end soon and we will have answers :(

Anyway i am certainly not leaving KAT-TUN that's for sure :)
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on September 22nd, 2013 11:51 am (UTC)

*____* they will always be my greener grass on the other side XD

Well, it's for his drama so I guess it's not irrelevant for Kame to still sing... but yeah, it's still hard to just accept and be happy.

We all just wish to know what's the deal... because really, it's really freaking people out...

But I understand you. Maybe I wouldn't feel this badly if Kame wasn't singing, but as I said, it's his job... his drama... so it's not all that irrelevant... it's just all shitty.

KAT-TUN is going through something that other groups have gone before.

it's such a horrible period in a fan's life :(

but it's just the horrible feeling of not knowing, more so when so many already planned events have been cancelled... it just makes me UGH...

Kame is definitely still a sweetheart <3
powwiepowwie on September 22nd, 2013 01:48 pm (UTC)
KAT-TUN's still my greener grass too! I don't plan to leave the fandom anytime soon.
I agree JE's attitude is getting on everyone's nerves. What's going on that so bad that you can't say a thing?
It's not like KAT-TUN (or any other johnny's band) is the only artist people listen too or likes. And it's not uncommon not to hear from them for a long time. But Kame and Maru are on tv every week and they don't (can't?) say a thing. Junno's reassuring people left and right...
I really feel for kame because of the drama promotion. Will somebody mention the elephant in the room? How is he going to enjoy the promotion?
I really love kame for his professionalism, as a fan I feel truly respected. At the moment I don't feel much respected by his agency. I will buy the single because I support him, but I'd prefer it to be released by a different label.
Your post calls for lenghty rantings! (i'm still going down on memory lane and reminisce about my trip ^^')
Happy sunday!
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on September 23rd, 2013 01:46 am (UTC)
I've never thought much of JE as an agency, and I really don't think they have KAT-TUN high on their list which is forever irritating.

It really makes me wonder how KT feels knowing a song written for them won't be sung by them. All this is reminding me of Bounce Girl and the suspicious covers as well the cancelled concerts Ugh JE, Ugh...

But yeah, KT is the only green grass over there for me ^^

hi lyan!!

it's been a while since i saw you here..

upon hearing this news the other day, i really admit that i'm pretty bitter about it.. i mean, why can't it be kat-tun? >.<

so to brighten things up, i'm thinking that je is doing something big or surprise to us hyphens.. that's what i'm hoping for.. i'm keeping my fingers crossed that they will release something before the year ends..


kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on September 23rd, 2013 01:48 am (UTC)
Hi Ai ^^

I'm still without proper internet so I just pop in now again to celebrate or the rant in this case ><

And definitely! I will keep thinking something grand is coming... just the thought puts me at tease somewhat :-)

*hugs* hope you have been well?!

I love our guys and I will always wait, but I don't understand this forced hiatus! Why? What has happened for create this situation? Is there anything that we can do or not? Stay in the dark is so frustrating!! And JE now decided for this single...is this the answer at our cranes? ahahahahah I'm kidding, sorry...but I want ALL our guys back!!! This situation could become like the Seishun Amigo-period style if it continues!
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on September 23rd, 2013 01:51 am (UTC)
I want our boys back too...
It's only been about 4 months since the last single but it's starting to feel like forever >.<

and even the paper cranes... I heard that some of them got returned to senders so the KT didn't even see them :(

oh the angst of not knowing!!!! *sighs*

Today I heard from Gabbi, that apparently every group (except kouhais ofc) in JE went through one year long hiatus without reason. Basically only NEWS's fans were lucky to know that it's bc of Yamapi and Ryo leaving. Rest of fans, when they group had hiatus, had no idea what's going on.
And that's the situation we're in >_<
It's awful and cruel and I don't like this idea of Hotta-ke BAND and their Sayonara☆Arigatou single.
I love you Kame, I don't have anything against you Tamaki, but no.

I demand KAT-TUN single, I demand KAT-TUN activities, I demand KAT-TUN.
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on September 23rd, 2013 01:58 am (UTC)
JE is just inconsiderate to fan's feelings by always keeping us the dark. *sighs*

I demand KAT-TUN single, I demand KAT-TUN activities, I demand KAT-TUN.

Well said!

and I like how Kame immediately dismissed the idea of KAT-TUN disbanding even though it still makes me... smh
dinachan27dinachan27 on September 22nd, 2013 05:38 pm (UTC)
you got all my feelings right. i do feel bad having kame involved with a project w/o KAT-TUN...but I have my hopes up that thry will make a great comeback soon and everythnig is gonna be great.
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on September 23rd, 2013 01:59 am (UTC)
Yeah, we need to keep all thinking positive as hard as it is with all the recent slap in our faces by JE *ugh*

it's only been about 4 months since their last single but it feels like forever~
saharasnow82: 42saharasnow82 on September 23rd, 2013 12:15 am (UTC)
This all over.

I see people talking about an unannounced hiatus as something that JE just does. But do we leave to solo projects for two members of the group just dangling like that? Especially when one of those said members is the one you are trying to push?

All of this is just BS that I will never understand. Now I know why I will never be able to work at a super huge company. They do a whole lot of stupid crap that somehow makes sense to someone but not the rest of the world.
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on September 23rd, 2013 02:03 am (UTC)
yeah, they are really bullshitting us in the middle of the solo pvs. If it's a hiatus then they could have waited and properly done it instead of leaving us in the misery of uncertainty.

It's really not fair to fans nor the group since it places pressure on them from fans...

It may end up being like the chain period again wherein when they return, they will forever be apologising for making us wait and worrying us etc. *sighs*
Hikari Kiramekudaftdragon on September 23rd, 2013 02:03 am (UTC)
Sadly (well, not really), there is a much greener pasture on the other side for me. I'll be back once we get an announcement of some KAT-TUN group activities, but in the meantime, the waiting is too much for me. I'll be back for them though, as long as they don't put things off for too long. Plus, at least I have Taguchi's Jweb to read to keep my interest. Still, they're competing against Backstreet Boys now (my inner fangirl revived after 8 years...with a VENGEANCE), so yeah...I really hope they don't put things off for too long.

Honestly, when I first heard that there was going to be another singer in the drama, I had a feeling that there was a temp unit. But I didn't think much of it because - well, denial. I want my boys!!! TwT

In a bit of a better mood because OMG THE FATHER-SON PV!!!!! TOO CUTE FOR WORDS!!!!!

As for JE, they should just hand everything over to Higashiyama - he at least respects KAT-TUN since he's been working with so many of the members the past two or so years. (Ignore me, I like to root for the third party because they are the most competent compared to whatever the two main factions are XP)

If this is the hiatus that every JE group goes through, then I'm assuming it was dropped on them like a BOMB since the members didn't like how they had to postpone things back in 2011...

Still holding on to the hope that maybe, just maybe, they will announce a single for Yuichi's Drama. there should be no excuse for it whatsoever!!!
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on September 24th, 2013 10:09 am (UTC)
haha everyone is going crazy for the father and son XD
It's already up for ordering on online stores ^^

As for JE, they should just hand everything over to Higashiyama

I keep thinking this too! he would be perfect. He seems to be the only one who gives a shit about KAT-TUN ><

But omg! a new single *squeals* I just hope they don't pull any stunt this time with crap like, "it's not a single" Ugh... one can never be too sure with JE.
