hikarikirameku: (KAT-TUN 3-nin 10th Anniversary)
So, I'm spending the last night of KAT-TUN being a group watching fancams and listening to the fan recording from the 10ks concert. By the time I get up in the morning, the final Tokyo concert will have ended, and the hiatus will begin. Then it is a long, indefinite wait til they resume group activities. In the meantime, I'll follow what solo activities of theirs I can, and pray they truly are resolved to keep going.

In the meantime, there's NEWS and Hey Say Jump, my tokusatsu fandoms, and maybe the KAT-TUN 10ks DVD in the future to keep me occupied, so I'll just hope I can stay distracted by that. May also backtrack to a few dramas I've had sitting in my backlog as well, or rewatch a few (been a while since I've watched Youkai Ningen Bem and Runaway). There's always the older KAT-TUN concert DVDs too, I suppose, if I can bear to watch them.

The video page is gonna be so lonely though in the meantime...

Anyways, Goodbye KAT-TUN, and to Kamenashi, Ueda, and Nakamaru, good luck in your solo endeavors. I'll be waiting!

I heard the news. My friend broke it to me this morning before work. I've had all day to deal with it and am still no less pissed.

Taguchi leaving KAT-TUN and JE.

I get it, it's his life and he deserves to be happy...

But holy fuck, I don't get how idols just toss their fans under the bus the way they do. They are LITERALLY still there after all the other bullshit they've had to deal with because of us supporting them.

I've been in this fandom for 5 years...5 fucking years. Started late 2010, and was actually introduced early 2010, so it's almost closer to 6.

I came in during the aftermath of the thing with Akanishi. They were just getting their shit together as 5. Then 2013 rolled around and we lost Koki...and now this.

If this is going to start being a trend with idol groups, I may as well just give up now. What's next, NEWS? They've already lost over half of their group. I just got into Hey Say Jump, but they're younger...so how long til this happens with them? They've lost one already.

I'm going to be watching the other 3, and waiting, and hoping...but Taguchi was my bias...THE bias, in ALL of JE. This...this just fucking hurts.

I hope he's happy, and I hope it was worth it for him, but seeing the other members hurt again, after all they've already been through. Taguchi can move on and I wish him well, but I won't support him from here on out. I'm tired of this. I'm tired of seeing Kamenashi shaking and singing with a cracking voice because he was forced AGAIN to deal with the aftermath of someone destroying part of what he's worked so hard to build. Kame was my original bias in KAT-TUN anyways, and I have a ton of respect for him, so if KAT-TUN pulls through, he'll probably reclaim that spot. But I know the members say to, but I can't be happy, not for this, I can't...I'm sad, and pissed.

...

And once again, I am so, SO happy I have at least one non-Japanese boyband to fall back on, because as much as I get laughed at for still being a Backstreet Boys fan, at least they have their shit together.

...for the KAT-TUN concert. I am way too poor though...and stuck in the US. I wonder if I'll ever manage to get over there?

However, despite not being there, my awesome buddy Nae ...in her infinite awesomeness...has managed to snag me some goods. She got me Junno's new uchiwa, the new venue bracelet (with the 4 group colors), and the photobook. Nae, did I mention you are awesome? That's on top of the uchiwa of each member from the first part of the tour, the penlight, Junno's photoset, and the orange bracelet (which venue was that again? ^^; ). I'm just trying not to think of how much the shipping cost for everything is going to hurt.

I'm also fully expecting KAT-TUN to record their DVD tomorrow night, for the New Year's Eve concert proper. That means we should have a new concert DVD to look forward to next year, when I finally get a chance to see what I missed...and also bust out the penlight and uchiwa...it adds to the viewing experience (and gives me something to excitedly flail around with ^^; ).

Also, of course, still very much looking forward to the Dead or Alive single next month.

There is a LOT of stuff coming out in September! Geez.... The new KAT-TUN singles, which of course I'm going to pre-order soon (after payday this week), then there's the new World of Warcraft expansion that month too (but near the end, so I have more time)...god help us if the CHAIN DVD comes out anywhere near then.

Actually, I'm really starting to get curious just as to when the CHAIN concert DVD is gonna be released. I mean, the tour ended in April. How long does it normally take them to release one? This is the first time I've actually been around as a Hyphen while KAT-TUN was touring, so I've never actually had to wait for a concert DVD before. They were always just kinda...already there ^^; I'm hoping it's sometime soon though, and not too close to a single release as to burden my poor bank account too much either ^^;

Then of course I'm still trying to collect older releases, which is a lot harder with also trying to keep up with newer ones. I still need to, at the very least, nab the QoP and NMP LEs, for their respective music videos, along with the LE singles for Lips, Rescue, both Love Yourself versions (for D-Motion as well), Going, Ultimate Wheels, White, Run for You...I think that's it. Then there's the concerts too, but those will have to come second seeing how expensive they are.

All in good time though. My job doesn't pay well enough for me to get a whole lot of anything at once anyways. I'm still trying to find a second job to fix that (since my current one only works me about 8 hours a week, which is why I'm always broke), but finding a job around here in general's been tough.
