and so... KAT-TUN is now a 4nin... I don't understand this world anymore.  
So I just received a mail from Johnny's fanclub that Koki decided to leave KAT-TUN... That's what they said... Tanaka Koki decided to leave KAT-TUN. That's what they said... Johnny's 'f*cking' Entertainment... Johnny and Associates... THOSE SHITTY-ASS BASTARDS!!!!!!

I feel like I could take a truck and beat the shit out of everyone in that agency.

I'm not even going through the effort of screencapping it, so the original message is below in Japanese... use google translate or whatever.

Fandom is giving me a bloody headache, diarrhea and I'm sure lots of grey hair.

This's giving me a million negative thoughts and I just hate it!!

For one thing, it's obvious they're STILL keeping something from us >< Not to sound offensive or anything but aren't the japanese famous for covering things up and pretending it didn't happen? I'm thinking there's something more to the story because seriously I refuse to believe Koki left just because of a scandal that to celebrity standards is hardly anything at all!

And the saddest part of all of this is...we're suckers...whatever it is, we'll still be supporting our remaining boys (though I honestly wouldn't be surprised if the group looses a lot of fans) and by supporting them still means more money to JE...GDI I do NOT want to support some greedy ass mindless, thoughtless corporation! But I love the boys so much I'm just scared of what might happen if we don't keep the support up...

Seriously let's go rent a tank or something and raid the JE office...I'm up for it any time now.

Trust me kicking Koki from the company wasn't easy, it's not really Johnny's fault its Koki's own after many bad decisions Koki made, and he got told off multy ply times and after to many times it got to much - and they decided to kick him, trust me Japan sees very hard on drug dealings and using Drugs, but it was more then that - if it had a been any other work Koki prob would have been kicked out long ago - so he should be happy that he got many changes as he did so in some way I understand JE I Think it was a very very hard decision but in the end it was the only outcome.

The working business its a hard life! no matter where in the world you are in - so Koki should be glad he was giving so many changes he got

All we can do is keep supporting them and Koki! It was a shocking day for all of us KAT-TUN fan's but then go really back and think about everything and don't make just Johnny the bad guy here only.

I woke up to this and I'm legit heartbroken...I don't even know how to feel. I'll still support them, but my heart just hurts T~T
Carnation Angelcarnationangel on October 9th, 2013 03:29 pm (UTC)
I preferred this being a stupid tabloid story.

I'm supporting the hell out of KAT-TUN's next single, I don't want them to break up.

Ohi, Hyphens please!!!!
Are we or not fans of a band that bears everything, that gives us strenghth and make us have fun? Are we or not fans of a fighting and direct band? Then let's get a move on now! Let's try at least before accepting the new situation! If it won't go well, ok, obviously we'll support them, but it's us, the reason why they work and they let their light shine in every situation, right? We must have some kind of influence, if we join together!!! If JE doesn't want to change its mind, why don't we try to be us, the ones who will change it? We must make them understand that we are here and that for us, Koki must have another chance! Don't we want to fight for him and for KAT-TUN? Yes or not? Do we want to see our precious band grinding just because their agency doesn't care about them? Let's get a move!!!"

Although I am so shaken and so sad at this news I am not totally surprised. And to be completely honestly I find no fault with JE in letting Koki go. How all this came out to the public was wrong but the firing wasn't.

Koki is a grown up. He knows how he is supposed to act. He has signed a contract stating what he is and is not allowed to do publicly. Reports have it he has violated quite a few of those provisions over the past few years. Normally you sign a contract with a company and violate the terms of said contract you will be fired but they let Koki remain.

I think the picture of him with the joint was the straw that broke the camel's back in this case. Would Suzuki or entag want to have a person that was happily posing with a joint in his hand happily promoting your family friendly product? I really don't think so.

In order to keep KAT-TUN and JE able to sell something the bad part had to go. I don't like it but that is business.

I'm scared for KAT-TUN though because Koki was a big part of what made KAT-TUN KAT-TUN. KAT-TUN with the rapping, the beat-boxing and the bad boy misfit image made them different from the other JE groups and this is what makes me like them over the other groups. I will continue to support KAT-TUN don't get me wrong. I'm just wondering what I will be supporting.

I'm going to go through my KAT-TUN pictures and play "Time to Say goodbye" from Sarah Brightman and Andrea Bocelli.
Carnation Angelcarnationangel on October 11th, 2013 11:32 am (UTC)
I thought I was the only one not blaming JE for Koki's actions. I love Koki, but he broke the rules. I think a lot of people are misguided on how the real world works regarding contracts.

I really hope that wasn't a joint in his hand but tobacco, though it doesn't look good. </p>

I will continue to support KAT-TUN and I hope they make it with the four of them. I will miss Koki's raps, but it's not the only thing that made KAT-TUN, KAT-TUN.


(I guess Junno picked up another T?)

saharasnow82saharasnow82 on October 11th, 2013 01:52 pm (UTC)
I think the problem is that the immense love for Koki and the hatred that so many have for Johnny and his “archaic” rules makes people not look at the situation objectively. He had violated the terms of a contract he signed, pure and simple, and the termination of the contract was the consequence. I don’t like it. I wish it didn’t have to come to this but if JE lets their employees start do what they want without consequence then they will start to lose control of the talents and the respect of other companies.

I will continue to support KAT-TUN and I hope they make it with the four of them. I will miss Koki's raps, but it's not the only thing that made KAT-TUN, KAT-TUN.

I think I may have phrased that one incorrectly. I did not mean Koki was the only thing that made KAT-TUN what it was. I meant with Koki rapping, Nakamaru beat-boxing, the whole group’s bad boy misfit image (although I think the Junno only fit the misfit image) and so on, KAT-TUN was different from other Johnny’s and I really liked it. Now they have lost a distinctive part of the KAT-TUN sound and I don’t know what they are going to evolve into now.

Yeah. I wonder how they are going to handle the letter distribution? At least when NEWS lost Ryo and Yamapi the letters had nothing to do with their names. And now it is kind of symmetrical – 4 letters/4 members.

Hopefully once its all calmed down people will realise this.

No you phrased it right, I was just meant if any group can do it, its them :)

Its KAT-TUN, I'm sure they will blow us away with their new single (hoping before Christmas) I'm a curious as to how they will handle Koki's parts in previous songs though. Jin's were easy, rapping, I'm not sure any of the others can rap but Koki? Well, not as good as Koki.

I figured it would just be given to Taguchi, cause thats how Johnny handled the A, giving it to Kame. Maybe they will just leave it as is, but no longer mention the A and -T? I think I'd prefer that then the -T no longer being associated with Koki :(
saharasnow82saharasnow82 on October 14th, 2013 02:55 am (UTC)
To some people it will always be JE's fault because the contracts the idols sign are ridiculous.

Oh good. Phew. I hope they can. From what Nakamaru said it looks like no one will be filling the rapper role. We will be dealing with a whole new KAT-TUN from here on out.

I am anxiously looking forward to the mini-album in Nov and the concerts in Dec. I want to hear the new sound.
Carnation Angelcarnationangel on October 14th, 2013 11:51 am (UTC)
They have a lot songs that have no rap and are great, I think they will be fine as long as everyone gives them time to adjust. Just hope their music is still rockish occasionally.

What exactly is a mini album? Just 5-10 songs I'm guessing? (I'll still buy it, just curious at what I'm buying lol)

Is there any word when we can preorder it? I'm wondering if its going to be a web release, thats always a pain and double the price, I want to buy it as soon as I can. I'm going to support the hell out of them (unfortunately don't have the money to go to their con T.T)
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on October 14th, 2013 02:37 pm (UTC)
yeah I suppose the mini album would be about 5 songs... can't wait to hear. No word yet on pre-order but I'm guessing soon since the release date is soon.

I'm going to support the hell out of them

*____________________* Yes, WE WILL!!!!
pyret1582: kazupyret1582 on October 15th, 2013 12:08 pm (UTC)
I am not blaming JE eighter on this. I mean Koki is a grown up person - and he got his chances to change - and got his warnings - and after a while the only outcome was to kick him - the business world is like that, I mean he should be glad he got his chances... if its been a more normal business he would had been kicked up earlier.

the only thing we can do is pray and keep supporting them
A Katcatgirl3344 on October 10th, 2013 08:01 am (UTC)
Oh no...! Not another bad news... though maybe this was the right decision, I don't like it. How will this change KAT-TUN? Just like others here, I liked KAT-TUN more than other JE bands because they had these diverse members, each with their own "talent". They each brought something to the group. Even though I didn't like Jin too much (i.e. I wasn't so sad when he left), I noticed a change in KAT-TUN. I guess it'll happen again now... Still, I'll continue to support them.

All that's left to say: ganbatte KAT-TUN, ganbatte Koki (whatever it is you're going to do from here)!
