KAT-TUN: I was not able to attend their last concert before hiatus, but was lucky enough to go to their first concert of 10ks tour in Nagoya. Nagoya again. The first time I went to Japan, I also came to Nagoya for their concert. Remembering that time reminded me how much KAT-TUN had motivated me to work harder and get through hard time. I’m an average person. I don’t have boyfriend, I don’t have a dream job, I don’t set any big purpose for this life. Must be a boring person I am lol but during my college time, I tried to balance both work and study with the hope of going to Japan once I finished school. And I did it. Attending KAT-TUN’s Chain concert gave me confident and for the first time, I felt like I achieved something big, important on my own. Watching TV news covering KT’s last concert, reading fans’ reports, looking at papa pics just made me love them more and more, and brought tears to my eyes. But guess what? “Don’t cry because it is over. Smile because it happened” – Dr.Seuss. I will continue this boring life for a bigger wish to see them again. Thank you K(amenachi)AT-TU(eda)N(akamaru) and see you again.

Taiga: Sadly, I didn’t get to see Taiga this trip. 10 years already? 10 years of working as junior? Such bittersweet feeling when I think about “10 years.” What did I learn from Ya-Ya-yah and KAT-TUN? Nothing will remain the same, good thing won’t be maintained forever. I will cherish all the moment I get to follow him, and I will appreciate all the work given to him (big or small doesn’t matter anymore).

Suddenly, I hate number 10. Hahaha, I feel bad for not congratulating SixTONES’ 1st anniversary because that May 1st is also KAT-TUN’s last group activity day.

Hope you had a good time on your recent trip ^^

I don't follow any senpai groups anymore but was quite shocked when I read about Junno leaving KA(menashi)T(a)-T(suya)U(eda)N(akamaru). The name still works! I hope they'll able to come back from their hiatus, and if not, maybe their absence will leave room in the market for another junior group to debut. It's about time.

Did you attend any SKE stages while you were in Nagoya or has the magic disappeared after Rena graduated?

I did have a good time :) I came to Japan not only for KAT-TUN, but also for sightseeing. Although I admitted that I chose that time of the year to come was because of KAT-TUN's concert :P Luckily, it turned out to be best time to view cherry blossom.

I loled hard when KAT-TUN explained KA(menashi)T(a)-T(suya)U(eda)N(akamaru).

I didn't attend SKE stage (the odd of winning the ballot was slim so I didn't bother). However, I saw a lot of SKE posters in Nagoya station and Esca mall, Chicken Line promo truck in Tokyo, and bought some SKE and Rena cds ♥ Thanks for remembering my liking towards Rena ^^

I bet you've read about SixTONES and Travis Japan will do same stage together this August ♥ so hoping for Taiga x Myuto duet. Taiga will never graduate from loving Myuto lol

Being able to be there to see the cherry blossoms on top of everything else on your trip sounds amazing ^^ I'm also glad you got to attend KAT-TUN's concert. I never followed then closely but I watched all the subbed Cartoon KAT-TUN episodes and most of their concert DVDs before Akanishi left. There was just something special about them as a group and it's sad for even me that this is how they celebrated their 10 year anniversary...

I remembered because your the only one in my small online circle who shares my love for both Jrs and SKE48 ^^ If I'm honest though, a lot of my passion for SKE cooled down after Rena graduated. Even though my oshi's Jurina, whose the face of SKE, Rena's like the heart of SKE. Without her, the experience just feels a little hollow. I don't know lol

Really! I haven't actually heard that news. Thanks for letting me know :) I'm totally looking forward to seeing Taiga and Myuto in a stage together<3 Maybe Myuto's singing will improve enough by then to be able to do a duet with Taiga haha

A~ Cartoon KAT-TUN. I want to rewatch them all but don't know where to download now. I started to feel bigger change in KAT-TUN's music when Koki left. Of course, I miss Jin's voice but his singing parts had been covered well by Ueda, Nakamaru and Junno. No member is able to rap, so Koki's rap was removed all from their recent performances. I cannot wait for 10ks dvd to come out.

I haven't found any SKE girl to oshi after Rena left. I like Nao and Rion, but not at the level I oshi-ed Rena yet lol I'm glad Rena keeps having work, especially drama so that international fans like me can watch. Meanwhile, SKE still hasn't had any TV show like Ebi series :( The lack of SKE activities makes me lose some interest in them. I hope SKE will dominate this year's election again ^^

This is SixTONES and Travis Japan's schedule. Cross finger that both groups will do more than backdancing for Mr.King >_< which juniors are you interested in besides Myuto? Do you support both Travis Japan and Love Tune? Myuto has been so busy in 2 groups.

If you're keen to rewatch some episodes, I remember that I downloaded most of them from JOR Subs and I found another site with some live links to older episodes as well. Watching Cartoon KAT-TUN changed the image I had of Jin big time (to a more positive one that is). But it reaffirmed my image of Koki lol Koki's a badass and no one can rap like him. I'm still waiting for him to release Make U Wet Chapter 3 :P

Seeing Jurina fall from #4 to #5 at last year's election was heartbreaking for me. I hope SKE can dominate again but I have a feeling it's going to be HKT's year.

Thanks for the schedule! I really like Travis Japan but they haven't had a lot of opportunities together as a group outside of Playzone which is unfortunate. Love Tune on the other hand, I'm happy that they've been formalised as a group by being given a name after appearing together so much but I don't quite see their potential for some reason. When they're a band, Yasui doesn't have strong enough vocals as a lead singer and as a group their ages, heights and style all kind of clash. Maybe it's just be me over thinking it haha But being in both groups has given Myuto a lot more screen time which is the most important thing to an international fan like me ^^ There's a few jrs who I like and watch a little closer during SC performances, but Myuto's the only jr for me. If he left JE, I think that would be the end of my journey with JE as well.
