Fandom... a good way to lose weight.  
You know, since this whole ordeal started, last week was the first time I felt anger towards KAT-TUN. No lie. Before was more like that depressing sort of sadness that I tried to ignore. But after seeing screencaps of this month's Shounen Club Premium I felt so mad at them because I thought, "what a waste - looking all happy when you're about to give up something as great as SCP". It continued into Friday that I actually fell asleep during Tame Tabi (I've NEVER done this... even if I was dying to sleep as soon as it was time for Tame Tabi, my eyes would automatically sparkle wide open). Then on Saturday, I didn't even pay attention to Yamaneko... my mood just wasn't there... AND THEN came Sunday when while finally watching SCP, I fell so inlove with the 4 of them again. I think my face was set in a grin the full hour while watching and replaying parts laughing and I even rebuked myself for feeling angy before.

And so I became happy again.

Then today, the reality went knock knock

「Tokoro-san no Nippon no Deban」  3/15 >> Junno's last day and Yuichi >> Starts 4/4 (Though, I wonder why not Ueda)
「Shounen Club Premium」 ends 3/16
「Tame Tabi」 ends 3/25

There's nothing surprising about them ending... it's only expected. But, I'll say "I'm very happy dates were finally announced".

I guess I'm weird but if I'm eating and the food tastes bad, then instead of throwing it away, I tend to hurriedly eat the bad bit first, so that I can even faster start with the good stuff.

And so these dates are like the bad bits that I need to hurry and come and pass... I'm growing impatient wanting May 1st to come quick as tomorrow. I just want everyone's sadness, anxiety, depression, uncertainty, and feeling of loss to quickly wrap up and slowly fade or adjust, and then when May 2nd comes, it would be ideal if folks (including me of course), can just click that recharge button and countdown for the good stuff to start.

I'm with you on this one. Ever since Taguchi announced his withdrawal from the group, I've experienced various emotions regarding KAT-TUN. Sometimes I'm happy, and sometimes I'm overly depressed in them.

Regarding May 2, I think we as fans could also use this "recharging period" to recharge as well - emotionally and financially. lol

Yeah this roller coaster ride has been going on for too long. It's sad to see them go, but nothing to do about it than quickly adjust.

Hang in there!

but lol on the financial 'recharge'. I still have to figure out how to get all these new albums XD

I guess we all feel that way... one way or another. But SCP was so so good! And Tame tabi also (Kame+strawberries+cooking+all of them and kakigori=love)! But like you I'm glad finally all dates are out. Now I can prepare for the end and not wonder how much longer do we have.

I'm also growing anxious for the concerts and May 2. I feel that after these last months (starting November 2015) I really need to recharge my emotions, I feel right now they're at 0%.

I'm starting to think this recharge period is for us fans... always being pulled around at KT's pace.

Even if my heart is heavy not seeing them, my wallet will be happy to serve it's purpose... that is... to keep cash!

It's a recharge period for everyone...

For our wallets...I'm not that sure though... if the guys will start solo stuff... *wallet screams*

I agree. I'm both dreading and looking forward to the hiatus. It'll be sad knowing we won't have anything from KAT-TUN for the foreseeable future, but at the same time, it'll give the fans a chance to sort out their feelings and regroup. My worry is that KAT-TUN aren't exactly known for keeping their word to us, so them saying they aren't planning to disband is only a mild comfort. I'll just have to hope.

What's worse is that not only has my enthusiasm for anything KAT-TUN related plummeted, it's affecting my secondary fandoms too. NEWS has so much stuff going on but I'm too depressed about KAT-TUN to care, and I haven't even bothered watching HSJ's newly released concert video yet. I'm still super bummed about yet another KAT-TUN variety show having to be canceled, and losing SCP just freaking sucks hard (mainly because I know they just lost one of the best hosting gigs they ever had. I'll miss the monthly performances horribly).

Still, instead of being angry at KAT-TUN, it's squarely focused on Taguchi. People keep saying it's unfair to be mad at him, but when he's causing this much chaos for others, it's hard to respect his decision. Right now the only thing keeping me for burning all his goods I have is the fact that I spent a ton of money getting them, and it'd be a waste (although at this point I doubt anyone will buy them, so they'll just rot in their box anyways). Still, if KAT-TUN pulls through, I may be able to forgive him someday...although I still hold a grudge against Koki, and I straight-up hate Akanishi, so it's unlikely, but Taguchi WAS my bias, so I'll keep his stuff for now.

I'll have to watch the Feb. ep. of SCP though, if only to see Kame get his birthday stuff (at least it lasted long enough for everyone to get a birthday round).

"KAT-TUN aren't exactly known for keeping their word to us, so them saying they aren't planning to disband is only a mild comfort"

OMG THIS!!!! It's exactly my thought. The more they try to convince us, it's the less I believe them. I wouldn't be surprised if this ends up being the end of them.

Folks keep protecting Junno but I don't think they need to. Innocent or not... victim or not... for whatever reason he thought it best to quit, he's still the cause of all this. It makes me strange and somewhat peeved that I still don't feel that anger towards him, but even so, he's solely to be blamed... more so since he or they refuse to give a proper explanation for him quitting.

But anyway, now that you mentioned it, at least everyone had their birthday celebrated on SCP... it's such a waste to let that programme go.... now I'm getting angry again.

Hang in there. I'm pretty sure in time all adjust and fall back into rhythm.

I this us fans rather than KT, really need this recharge.

shall we add the latest rumors? That the reason for the hiatus is because kame's debut as solo artist?
Ah, tabloids are so sneaky.
If the agency is planning to have Kame released music later on they can't officially deny the rumors.
And this kind of rumors is certainly juicier than Kame concentrating on his acting career (which is expected, btw).
If he's going solo, I would like to believe it's a consequence not the reason of the hiatus.
Poor Kame, regardless of what he's going to do people will blame him for the hiatus.
Haters will be haters.
And tabloids will keep on rubbing salts in our wounds, undermining our already thin trust in them. It's not that I don't trust them personally any longer. I've never trusted the agency, but I was convinced that they wouldn't accept to lie in our face again after Koki was fired. I'm not so sure about that anymore.
So yes, I really want too this recharge period to start, to finally understand what's all about. To know I can still follow them individually and hoping that they'll be again on a stage together.

I was hoping Tame Tabe would survive the agency's decision to stop all band's activities... But it didn't. ;_;
I found little solace in the fact that Nakamaru's taking Junno's place in Nippon no Deban. Better another KAT-TUN member.

Ooooh yeah, today someone was telling me about that Kame going solo bit... but I can't see Kame making it big in music. But even if it's so, I really don't care as long as Ueda gets his Mouse Peace and they return in a year or two as promised... though they don't have the best track record with keeping promises.

I guess you're right about another KT member getting the Junno's part.

The media likes to cause a stir at fan's expense. I bet they'll be like watchdogs for time to come.

Yep! counting down to 'recharge' スタート!

Agh *w* Someone translated the 10,000 words interview of Ueda in englisch and I'm translating it into french and there's SO MUCH Junda love in it.
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on February 28th, 2016 04:09 am (UTC)
I read it! But I was too busy to make a flail post.
SOOOO much JunDa love! It's healing and heartbreaking at once ^^

Happy translating!
