some days I just want to be bored  
Gintama ep247
Today was a strange day for me.

From missing my morning bus (even after running mad like Usain Bolt), to realising a while after that I'd lost one of my earrings that held some deep memories... to KAT-TUN announcing their concert *dances* to then realising my long time fear of "SHIT! These dates clash with my GACKT concert dates - already booked and paid for"... to then literally feeling my mood drop lower and lower and sink each time I see the '3人' and knowing now for sure that it's final... then being happy again that 3人 will carry on, but to then again fall when I see the '3人' and knowing that the KAT-TUN I know and love, even if for the better, it will change ~ then my mood changed again when while walking home some 9 hrs later, I found my earring sparkling at the bus stop *miracles happen* - apparently it had fallen off after I'd very angrily pulled off my scarf in annoyance after running so hard to have still missed the bus LOL

And so here I am.  Not sad. Not happy. Just here. Waiting for things to settle.

But for the record;

♪ FEATHERS★★ is awesome!

I'm really glad I found a song I can keep on loop... the last time this happened was with the Kusabi mini album. I wish they would keep doing songs like this. But that's a pipe dream.
Current Mood: hmmm
Current Music: feathers by kat-tun

*hugs* and yay to lost and found.

For totally different reasons, I'm feeling the same.
Not sad and not happy.
On the matter of concert, well, in my case kat-tun's dates don't clash with anything else. I'm just broke T_T
And although the first reaction was to check plane ticket fares the result was always the same... it's going to cost too much. (and actually the fares are not that bad!!!! >_<)
So I'm in this zen-mode of 'I should not investigate any furhter on this matter, lots of fun to all the fans going'...

It got easier to accept that I can't go once I realized that the announcement was also the official statement that 3人 KAT-TUN will carry on.
It was never said officially up to now.
So, while I'm sad for Junno leaving, I'm conforted by the fact that I still have KAT-TUN and I'm still get to see Kame and Ueda performing.
Not on this tour but I now have hope for another chance.

I like the fact that there are plans now to look forward to. It's harsh watching the promotion of the singles...
Tragedy making of was honestly the shortest and saddest making of ever!
Having two singles released within a month it's weird, but honestly, if THAT making of were released before UNLOCK single announcement, fans will be despairing left and right.
It's easy, for me, to pretend that that making of does not exit when I have UNLOCK to look forward to and I know that I still have my (halved) band.
I still haven't watched Atsukunare making of, I'm hoping that one has a lighter feeling.

and yes, FEATHERS is awesome! We hyphens need a "shouting" song! Everybody SCREAM!

It's a pity you can't attend this tour. I may be able to make 2 dates. I shall plan out things to make that happen.

It's good seeing 3nin doing their thing. I just hope this doesn't prove to be a quick thing to calm fan's nerves as the debut anniversary approaches to only have them disappear for ages after. As for Junno, I'm sure in time all these ansty feelings of missing him will fade. I'm just waiting it out... impatiently.

Feathers is great. I still haven't hooked onto the other songs as yet. And I still haven't even seen the MVs ><' But I shall do so tomorrow. How short was Tragedy's Making? Now you're making me hesitate.

I'm being convinced that this fandom makes us stronger emotionally. lol It's necessary to survive here

😂 it's a whole shitload mess of feelings huh? But damn i just have to comment on that earring thing! That's srsly lucky!! I'm happy you found it!

And i just LOVE FEATHERS!! as expected it's totally a kat-tun song. Twilight on the other hand >_> damn that song TwT i dont hate it but it gives me feels that i dont want >< i hope they get to perform feathers at least as a 4 person group.
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on February 10th, 2016 05:14 pm (UTC)
lol my lucky earring. At least it helped to balance out my feels.

Feathers is definitely KT's. Maybe Uepi had something to do with it. It would be nice to have them perform it but I doubt it so. Perhaps their last 4nin perf will be SCP then MS for Unlock and that's it ;_;

But yay for the lil goodness in between the sadness ^^'
Hikari Kiramekudaftdragon on February 10th, 2016 07:56 pm (UTC)
That earring thing is seriously lucky!

On the new single, I agree, Feathers is awesome! I really like Tragedy and Twilight too. Pity the single has this air of sadness around it, since we know it's the next to last one before Taguchi's gone, and unless they perform these songs on SCP, we'll never hear a performance with all four of them. Kinda makes me wonder why they released so many new songs RIGHT before he's leaving, but whatever.

I'm just glad we have an official date now. I think I'll feel slightly better once April rolls around and we get everything over with and the new tour starts. Although I'm with you that I'm worried the three of them might disappear for a while once the tour's over, but you never know (plus, Kame's work usually warrants a new single release more often then not anyways). If they end out this year okay, I'll be less worried about them, and possibly slightly less angry with Taguchi. Maybe. Although he's still on my shit list now for bailing on the group this year, of all years.
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on February 11th, 2016 05:48 am (UTC)
Yeah I feel once this year is over and they remain settled and we can see them and be comforted that they're here to stay, then things will be better.

I guess with Yamaneko and the Shinpachi anime now, things had to turn out this way, singles-wise. A 4nin single near the end doesn't sound bad to me... it's like a sent off, I suppose buuuuut, yeah, doing all these songs with the 4 of them means they won't perform them much or for a very long time (rearranged)... I guess that's why they want to hurry with a new album with 3nin songs.

*sigh* I just really want everything to settle so yes! dates are definitely important. Glad we have a count down period to put things in order.

Feathers is awesome! Twilight does have a nice groove too but Feathers gets me all energetic.

YAY for finding the earring :D Sometimes surprising things do happen! Someone from The Powers That Be just knew you didn't need something else to make you sad ^^

Yeah, since yesterday my emotions are a roller-coaster too. Happy, sad, then happy, then worried about those three and their future, then happy... And I was really pumped and happy with the single and all the songs, then there was the announcement of the 3nin and the concerts and the rollercoaster started... and I think it got worse after I watched the Tragedy PV making... like Powwie said it's got to be the shortest making of ever and saddest (it will rank to me even worse than Love yourself and I found that one pretty depressiong...). Its doesn't get to be 10 minutes long and you barely hear Kame and Ueda's voices... :(( For such a great PV, that making of is a true tragedy (pun HIGHLY intended) :'( Atsukunare making of compared to Tragedy is better, but... *sigh* You can just see there's something wrong. If Junno hadn't already announced his departure I would have been worrying about the guys right about now.

I'm really really glad UNLOCK is coming because at least this single was done after the whole Junno dark cloud had been dealt with, so I'm hoping for a more light hearted making ofs and more member interaction. *pretty please*

But yeah FEATHERS just rocks in so many ways!! I think the one that I like the least is Tokyo Starry... And Twilight everytime I hear it it's like a stab to my heart. It makes me incredible nostalgic and feel like I just want to hug those guys (plus what's with Kame's voice??? My knees go week, just like his voice on Feathers XD)

So I hope UNLOCK comes soon! And wait for emotions to settle in relation to Junno (again) and for my brain and heart to finally realise and be truly filled with happiness that we'll still have KT in the future!

kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on February 11th, 2016 05:59 am (UTC)
Gosh, Powwie mentioned the making of Tragedy being--- tragic... I haven't watched yet... but I just downloaded it (don't ask me why I'm downloading when I have all three CDs starting at me lol) but yeah, I prefer to watch on my laptop but my DVD player isn't working and I was too lazy to set up the TV DVD player ><"

Anyway, yeah it's good we now have dates and things to look forward to. I'm sure in time I'll get over Junno. In time he'll become a good memory like anything in ordinary life... so I'm just biding my time and waiting impatiently.

So yaaay for lost and found earring moments ^^

I know that feel u_u I think is more or less the same for all of us~
woo you're going to the Gack concert!! that's amazing!

Sometimes after a day like that good things happen and I'd like to think that it's life telling you that it's not over and no matter how bad the future could look like at the end something good can still happen! :)

I share your opinión about feathers!! <3
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on February 11th, 2016 06:08 am (UTC)
Yeah, as long as good things still happen then we can all be hopeful that good things will continue to be ^^

Yeah I can't wait to see GACKT in concert... just a bit over a month to go!!! I think that's comforting in many ways ^^

I hope UNLOCK will have one or two good catchy songs too ^^

Less than a month to go :-)

I wish I had money to go to lives and such >< My money gets drained by daily living and the responsibility of keeping my boyfriend happy. I've only ever been able to go to one show in my life and it was for ARASHI.
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on February 11th, 2016 03:40 pm (UTC)
Yeah, to attend concerts and grab goods needs some sacrificing. I've been trying since December to save to help for these days... petty saving like all my 500yens lol Hopefully they'll add up for a ticket or at least part of my travelling expense ^^
kurikuribebikurikuribebi on February 11th, 2016 09:28 pm (UTC)
It adds up! I do the 500 yen coin saving to save for dates lol. Before I knew it, I had saved 8万! But now I'm starting over haha
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on February 12th, 2016 09:50 am (UTC)
wow that's amazing! I'm hoping to be surprised when I open that box lid and count lol

I have over 2yrs worth of 1yen and 5yen but just because I find them heavy and annoying~ but I wish I had started with the 500 yen from earlier.

BTW, Gackt got a new movie. ^^

And for Yamaneko, we FINALLY know in the fourth episode. *o*
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on February 11th, 2016 03:42 pm (UTC)
I can't wait for GACKT's movie. It sounds interesting... weird and interesting lol

and Yaay for Yamaneko. Good to know you're still liking it ^^

Long time don't see. All is well with you?
serial_translatserial_translat on February 11th, 2016 07:08 pm (UTC)
Just have a last oral presentation tomorrow (in french) and still that freaking internship to find. Maybe thanks to the advice of a german teacher I'll be able to find it.

Anyways, Yamaneko is damn good, the drama AND Kame. You could find hundreds of way to call the way his character his and behaves (and not always nice words XDDDD) Besides, I ship him and Hiroki. *w* For now, I'd say the drama is quite messy, I mean for the characters, we don't know who we can trust among them because with the fourth episode it goes on like this. Is "he/she" a traitor or it's an act ? I ask myself that about several characters.

kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on February 12th, 2016 09:54 am (UTC)
Good luck with your presentation!
You seem the articulate type so you should be ok ^^

Yeah, what keeps Yamaneko drama interesting is that you never know who's on whose side... that and how well they start and end an episode. The suspense is really there and gripping ^^

Things shall get even more interesting now with Yuuki finally in the picture... the comedy might tone down a bit and more brutal fights.

Hi, I hope you don't mind me asking, I am hoping to go to Japan when the KAT-TUN Nagoya concert is happening and I've been investigating getting tickets. I am looking into trying to join the fan club, I was wondering if you know when the balloting for the Nagoya concert tickets starts and finishes? Any other information would be much appreciated.
Thank you for all your updates and opinions, I really enjoy reading them.
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on February 16th, 2016 03:55 pm (UTC)

I'm not sure you can join the FC now and still make it in time for the deadline for concert application.

Applications are already open and the deadline for FC application is Feb 25. That includes Nagoya.




As for general sales, I can't remember if it was stated but check KAT-TUN's page. It might be there.

But deadline for FC members to apply is Feb 25 and applying for FC membership if you're not in Japan is hard and after applying, it takes about 2 months or so.

Sometimes, folks wait until tickets are resold from FC members

I hope this helps a bit.
izzy and sjofn osaizzyosa75 on February 16th, 2016 04:13 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much for the information. I will try and get a resale ticket in that case.
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on February 19th, 2016 12:11 pm (UTC)
Ok. I hope you find a decent buy.
Do you plan on attending alone?
izzy and sjofn osaizzyosa75 on February 19th, 2016 03:59 pm (UTC)
Thank you, I probably will be going alone.
