It´s that time of the year again and... I just want to say THANK YOU.
Thank you to everyone, who are my Friends here on LJ, to everyone, who read my fanfics and especially to those who comment them.
It means much more to me than you think.

Have a nice time spent with those you love and who love you back.
Merry Christmas!

Kasumi

Maybe I´m just impatient or it´s simply a somehow weird/bad/busy period for everyone now, but...
Is anyone out there reading this LJ at all? O_O
It would be nice to know...
It feels like I´m all alone over here. T_T



PS: Don´t mind me, seems that from some reason I´m oversensitive recently... At least, I got out one of those things which bother me. XD

EDIT:
Thank you so so so much to all of you, my dears, who let me know that LJ is not so silent, as it seems to be. I was really worried that all of you have given up on me. I guess I just needed some... assurance, that I´m not writing RW just for myself. XD I´m really happy that I have readers like you. <3

18.4. – 23.4. 2016, ÓSAKA

I´ve been there with my sis for 5 nights...
- flying with Emirates Airlines (one of the best we´ve used for traveling so far, at least according to my opinion)
- visiting Hozanji Temple, Namba, Daisenryo Kofun tomb, Kyocera Dome ^_^, Aquarium Kaiyukan, Shintennoji Temple, Osaka Castle and Floating Garden
- shopping in Book-Off shops (yes, again), in Shinsaibashi and in Tower Records of course!
- eating takoyaki, gyoza, ramen, soba noodles and tempura and more.... I just loved breakfasts (rice and salmon!!)

The weather was mostly sunny and even too warm for my taste, it was raining for just one day and then in the evening of our departure.
I also tried used my poor Nihongo (Japanese) a few times, suprisingly with success and bought a lot of sweets and omiyage (souvenirs) for friends and family.
And a top of this "trip" – KAT-TUN の ´10ks!´ live in Kyocera Dome = unforgettable experience.

Looking at what I wrote, I think we managed quite a lot within such short time. And I already miss Japan... Again.


PS: We managed to catch quite a few Johnny´s idols on TV, but Kame just once in Raizin CM! O_o


A few photos I took if you´re interested... )

KAT-TUN held their last live tour “KAT-TUN 10th Anniversary Live Tour 10Ks!” on 1st May at the Tokyo Dome. After this, KAT-TUN activities will cease as they enter a recharge period. Below is the message from Kamenashi Kazuya.

Hi, this is KAT-TUN’s Kamenashi. Thank you for coming today. Before our 10th year anniversary, another member left again…From 6 members to 5, from 5 to 4, from 4 to 3. Every time this happens, we’re able to stand in front of everyone and talk(about moving forward together). However, time and again, we were not able to deliver our promises.

As a member of KAT-TUN, I’m really ashamed, regretful, and sorry. We, too, came so far after overcoming all these walls. When i feel like escaping, because of the support from everyone, i felt the need to stay in KAT-TUN, to be the Kamenashi who loves KAT-TUN. I’m really thankful.

From tomorrow onwards, we will have to put in our best in various places. I also hope to be able to move on with strength while searching for the new Kamenashi Kazuya, in my own time and place. I will treasure all the experience and scenes i’ve seen up till now, and hope i can bring it back to this place.

Finally, we KAT-TUN are K – Kamenashi Kazuya, A – Akanishi Jin, T-Taguchi Junnosuke, T-Tanaka Koki, U-Ueda Tatsuya, N – Nakamaru Yuichi. We are a group made of these 6. We might not exist if not for these 6, and I might not be able to meet everyone like this. The remaining 2 here (Nakamaru and Ueda) have been through alot, but we’d like to thank the 3 who left for walking so far.

From now, the future is a question mark. From time to time, we may make you worry, we ourselves will also feel the same. However, we will continue and make you feel that this is necessary in order to protect KAT-TUN.

So please continue to follow us. When each of us have gathered enough strength and feel like we’ve protected KAT-TUN, I’d like to return proudly as KAT-TUN’s Kamenashi Kazuya. Please take care of us and thank you
.”

Only shortly today...

April had been a very busy month for me. I feel quite tired and knowing that upcoming two weeks are going to be only a little better doesn´t help much. On the other hand, it was the month filled with so many great moments and experiences, that I cannot really complain about it and remembering them is helping me to go on in this a bit exhausting period (though, dealing with KAT-TUN going on hiatus is much harder, harder than I expected... maybe I should just stop watching all those videos showing their last live in Tokyo Dome...).

I had been in Ósaka, where I was lucky enough to see KAT-TUN ´10ks´ live, and after that I´ve attended my most favorite otaku-related event of the year in our country. I´d like to create a proper (and very detailed) article about both Japan-vacation and AnimeFest 2016, but since I have very limited ´space´ for anything in general, I´m afraid I´ll make it quite short, if I want to write anything at all. Anyway, I will publish it in separate posts - to be followed.

There´s been a lot to deal with at once and despite it was mostly in the positive way, I do hope it gets calmer for at least some time now, I really need it. ^_^´

Till next time... Thanks for your patience.
Kasumi

PS: Just let me mention one more thing – did you notice what date Jin chose for releasing his new album „Audio Fashion“? I mean the day in the month. ^^´

I´m a little late, but still... I´d like to join one nice idea about posting this statement... And I was in THE mood today...

* WE ARE KAT-TUN *






NO MATTER NO MATTER WHAT

PS: It´s still hard to believe that as of today are our dear guys officially 3-nin group... Just how did it come to this outcome?
witchann2: (KAT-TUN)
Kon´nichiwa! ^^/

So... To my great surprise, I´ve managed to reach the lovely 2nd place in KAT-TUN 10th Anniversary contest!
http://art-of-clarity.livejournal.com/112291.html
*dancing around*
Once again, arigatou gozaimashita to everyone who voted for me!
*bow*

And here it goes - my special Anniversary message for KAT-TUN...
The point of the contest was to include 10 KAT-TUN group songs into it. I´ve managed to hide a little more of them there, but the capital and bold ones count in this case. ^_^


********************************************************
Dear KAT-TUN…

Your road has never been very easy, has it? Step by step you kept climbing up that long and difficult ladder in show-business and even seemed to enjoy balancing on the edge of it all the time. But it´s just one of many things, which make you so special…

Despite it shook heavily from time to time, that CHAIN OF LOVE with which you tied our hearts with bonds never broke. You brought us both laugh and tears, both joy and sorrow with such intensity that sometimes it felt as a quite SADISTIC LOVE. You made us overcome DISTANCEs, you RESCUEd us with your music and despite some of your PROMISE SONGs turned out unfulfilled, you have always been too PRECIOUS ONEs to us to let you go.

You are our STARs and we are your Hyphens no matter what. RIGHT NOW it might feel difficult and unbearable but once, a BRAND NEW DAY will come again and when you are there, we will be there too.

WE ARE KAT-TUN.
NOTHING ELSE MATTERS.
*************************************************************

I hope you all had a great Anniversary day!

Kasumi

PS: I´m just curious - can you see ALL KAT-TUN songs in that message? You can try to count them and let me know in the comment if you like. ^_^
witchann2: (KAT-TUN)
Happy 10th Anniversary Day to KAT-TUN and all Hyphens around!!
KAT-TUN welcome
No matter the difficulties on this long voyage with our dear "pirates", today we have a reason to celebrate! It s been 10 years since the ´Real Face´ debut! And it´s damn hard to believe it...

Let´s use this opportunity and make this "322 day" as special as possible; since it´s a once in a lifetime occassion...

Omedetou KAT-TUN no mina-san! ^^
PS: Even Jin and Koki remembered this day on their twitter accounts, making me all teary and happy...

PPS: A proper 10th anniversary related message for KAT-TUN will follow later - it´s a part of a certain contest and I can´t publish it before the results are out. ^_^´
witchann2: (KAT-TUN)
Konbanwa minna-san! ^^/

Today, I´ve got just a little summary of recent KAT-TUN related news, about which you certainly know, but I´d like to share it anyway…

UNLOCK
Released on 2nd March; officially their last 4-nin single… I really like the play of white and black in the PV and especially those parts where there is “more” of them - they are so kakkoiii… *o*
GREATEST JOURNEY
I think this was a perfect choice for the last 4-nin PV to be made; they made me laugh so hard over it (for the 1st time since Junno has announced his departure). I really needed something like this…

“10ks” Album
The list of ´Best of´ songs was released; just going through it made me feel so nostalgic… I´m “afraid” this will be one of those things I just NEED TO OWN. ^^´ Not to mention those covers! I approve. :D
Plus, there is a new 3-nin song (ballad) ´Kimi no Yume, Boku no Yume´ included. I got inexplicably excited about the information that the same person (Suga Shikao), who wrote ´Real Face´ for them is behind this. I´m so curious about it!
(The realization that they made this in 3-nin unit still saddens me, but… We all are trying to deal with all of this somehow, right?)

Fight-oh! ^^v


http://aramajapan.com/news/music/sugao-shikao-pens-new-kat-tun-song-best-album-details-releases/55671/


PS: I´m aware that I somehow (don´t ask me how) ended up in a kind of “unannounced hiatus” myself. It has been a month (already??? O_O) since I posted the last RW chapter. Gomen ne… But since there is a “free” weekend in front of me, I promise I´ll work hard to provide you with a different kind of update too… ^^ Not to mention I miss my western AKame as hell.
