It's Tanaka Koki, the one who's been training hard lately.
The next time you see me I'll have a sexy body, just you wait.
Lately, as you may know, we're filming in Kyoto.
I'm reviving my role as Ren-sama.
Today I'm still Kyoto.
This time I've come with a plan.
Kyoto is so nice.
When I first got here by myself and I said "I'm home" in a quiet voice,
the staff in Kyoto greeted me with a "Welcome back"...
it felt like they were my family.
But there is sad news from the "Hissatsu" drama set...
I still can't believe it but it's very sad.
Even though just last year Fujita-san was interviewed in a newspaper.
As a person, as an actor,
I'm so honored to be a part of this wonderful man's last work.
The fact that he talked to someone like me...
Fujita-san gave me something...
We didn't talk much but I learned a lot by watching...
I will not waste everything I've learned.
I'll hold on to everything in my heart and not let it fly away.
That's the best way to honor someone's memory.
Continue silently filming...
I'm still in the middle of it but something really really awesome is going to happen I think!!
Of course this is purely self congratulatory,
but I can't wait until you hear about it!!
When you receive it I want to hear your thoughts on it!!
There is still more to come so it won't be only the fruits of my labor!!
I don't know when I'll be able to tell you about it but until then, stay tuned!!!!!!!!
Yesterday, the night before coming to Kyoto, I stayed up all night writing lyrics.
I took the lyrics of a song that were not mine and changed it completely to make them mine.
It's really hard to change the lyrics of a song that you've sung for a long time.
There are good and bad parts to it but I think it turned out really well.
The LIVE will begin sooooon.
If I don't hear you guys shouting, watch for your life...eh calm down koki.
Ah I'm so happy!
No matter how you put it, its a LIVE; a LIVE guys!
Not to mention a World Tour LIVE...
When I was young, never in my dreams did I think that something I could make could reach across the ocean...
Though this time we might have made everyone feel a bit insecure and uneasy.
For that, I speak for the other members as I bow my head.
We're sorry. m(_ _)m
But you know?
We want to perform LIVEs.
LIVEs are the only way we can really see everyone face to face and have our feelings reach you guys directly.
Originally, we were a group that began because of performing LIVEs.
We don't want to throw away opportunities right before our very eyes.
More than anything, after 10 years, 20 years, we want to perform LIVEs as KAT-TUN.
I don't know about the next 10-20 years, but we shouldn't waste opportunities given to us now, because we won't know the next time we'll be able to push ourselves and perform our best.
We're also not in a position to choose.
We want to seize every opportunity that comes to us.
For all those reasons, we're in this kind of situation.
I think there are many walls in life.
I think we end up facing them.
When that happens, people should go for it.
We feel the same.
Physically there will be a lot of challenges.
But we have to stand firmly.
No matter what happens, KAT-TUN, this place I call my home, will not disappear.
I want to protect it.
That's why we will stand firmly and hold on.
That's all I want.
Everyone has their own life.
Other people cannot make decisions for us.
The same is true in the reverse.
That's why we're going to do our best with this decision.
We're going to give you with all of our strength, more than you paid for.
We're not kids anymore you know.
I think that's what it means to be a professional.
I don't want to stop expressing myself or stop running.
That's really it I think.
We don't want to stop, and we don't have the intention of ever stopping.
Because of that...
please follow us.
Without you, we wouldn't be able accomplish anything, we'd be a miserable bunch but...
with all of our might, we will repay you.
We will repay you on stage so...
whatever happens that will never change.
To all the people who can and can't come to our show,
you are all one piece of us.
Your voices complete this puzzle called KAT-TUN.
You give us meaning.
We won't stop.
We hate lies and I'm bad at writing so I'm not sure if I got my point across but...
Please trust us,
believe us and follow us.
We'll make you happy.
This got long but...
"Hissatsu Shigotonin", our tours in America, Asia, inside Japan...
In everything, please support us
