iside89: (Kame is for Temptation...)
Busy with Christmas, concerts, fanmeetings and TV programs with KAT-TUN, I totally forgot to read this issue until yesterday! Sorry, Kame! xD
It's a lovely, lovely entry. I really liked it (I know I say it almost every time, but this is really full of fuzzy warm feelings!)

-Effect of women on him! XD
-Kame fanboying Meg Ryan watching movies xD
-His "special woman" ♥
-The reason and incentive that brings him to do more and more at work.

Thanks [ profile] scorch66 who helped me suggesting the proper English words more than usual :D


What's the scenery of the bottom of the heart that Kamenashi Kazuya's lens reflects?

Vol. 35 – 癒し Soothing

「Self-care is important too. But the soothing I receive from the opposite sex is way more effective (laughs)」

I honestly want a girl at home! (laughs) A gentle and cute “special woman” allows my mind’s switch to turn off. )
iside89: (Kame pieces)
Merry Christmas to everyone! ^__^ Here your end of the year gift from me~ (and Kame, okay~ XD)
What he says here is slightly melancholic but really deep. Your food for thought for the last days of the year :)

-"Right now I'm extremely lonely (laughs)" (cit.)
-Talking about how he is taking both praises and failures in his work right now.
-And yes, talking about becoming four.

Thanks to [ profile] scorch66 for the English betaread :)


What's the scenery of the bottom of the heart that Kamenashi Kazuya's lens reflects?

Vol. 34 今 Now

「The hardships of the present are for the sake of the time that will come several years from now. I think the future will change depending on me」

Right now I'm extremely lonely, but I'm personally choosing to be “alone”. Because I want to keep hold of the depth of my own heart. )
iside89: (KAT-TUN Kusabi)
It's a short crosstalk, small mention of Ore Ore in Italy and Ueda's Taiikukai but it was cute for the lovely "Junno love" Kameno interaction and the episodes other Johnny's told about KAT-TUN :)

2013.12.16 The Television

If we take our personal experiences as pieces of a puzzle... )
iside89: (Kame pieces)
Did the previous crosstalk pump up your expectations for the new album? No? Then, here another crosstalk full of heartwarming words... maybe this time it will persuade you to buy Kusabi? xD
As highlights, this time I'll use the lines the magazine itself highlighted:
N: This album is the best up until now.
U: It's an album that can perfectly show the present KAT-TUN
K: As expected, my base is KAT-TUN
T: I look forward to our first individual countdown live.


TV PIA 2013.11.20

(credit on pic)

KAT-TUN will release their new “KUSABI” on 27/11, after 1 year and 9 months. This album, which makes you feel the bond of the new KAT-TUN, will probably become what will bound the relation with the fans stronger than before.

For me it's something I've done only with the members. This is why I think it's a place I must keep dear, and I can't even think of not having it anymore right now. I'm thinking once again that, as expected, my base is here. )
iside89: (Junno FtF)
Because everyone needs KameDa sitting on TaguMaru's backs in their life!! :D ♥ LOL it was released today, I'm fast xD
Jokes aside, the photoshoot is very cute, but they talk about the PV and album backstage so it should be interesting for everyone! Highlights:
-Title of the tour (which seems is officially “KAT-TUN”, not “Countdown 2013”) and Junno's role in creating the live structure :D
-Kusabi PV took more than one day!
-What's KAT-TUN's linchpin (kusabi)!

The magazine has also an interview to Kame that I haven't translated (thus the (KAT-TUN part) I added in the title).

NOTE BEFORE READING: “Kusabi” literally means “wedge/linchpin”, but it's also used to indicate a strong bond or tie between people, not so differently from “kizuna”, thus the whole wordplay in the crosstalk.

TV LIFE 2013.11.20 (KAT-TUN part)

(credits on pic)

KAT-TUN will release their first album after becoming four members, “Kusabi”. During the talk and the greatly coordinated posing for the camera, the “kizuna=kusabi” [bond=linchpin] born from being together for so many years is clearly strong. We have expectations from this new KAT-TUN!

It's after a long time, and it's the first time for us to both hold a concert as four members and have an independent countdown concert. It'll be a special live, in many meanings. )
iside89: (Kame dangan pirate)
This interview was unexpectedly cute! Basically, the setting is "what if you lived with the three members?", so the boys are asked what would be the life with the other two members, plus a girl (the reader).
Kame doesn't want to live with Junno and Nakamaru but would like to be spoiled by the girl who lives with them, Junno and Maru agree that among them it'd be Kame who cooks, Junno talking about Kame like he's his younger brother (seeing through his words~), Maru thinking they three could never live with a girl flatmate because... XD

A thank you to moon_catcher so I could finally read and translate it! :D

* Parenthesis () in italic are the staff comments to the pictures.

AnAn 2013.10.29 no. 1879
If you lived with these three, your heart would skip beats the whole weekend ♥

This is “HOUSE KTN”, the share house of your dreams. What if you started living all of a sudden together with these three amazing inhabitants...?
We made this dream come true on the magazine.

(pic from tumblr)

Kamenashi-san easily cooks a soup. Nakamaru-san finds something to do and works. Taguchi-san places himself next to them and cheers. Such a happy kitchen time. )
iside89: (Kame XDD)
With this, we're again in line with Maquia's releases! *applauses* Theme was given in English, as written in the title, "Love". I personally really like how the theme was developed because probably it isn't what you're expecting ^^
And by the way, I see Ao's luggage in front of the door in Kame's picture ^^

-Talking a lot about Tamaki Koji and TBW :D
-Love as power to deal with work and people :D
-How he related with work when he debuted and what changed now.
-Small revelations about Shuji & Akira and Yokai Ningen Bem offers.
-...and quite a lot of other stuff!

Thanks [ profile] scorch66 for the English check ♥


What's the scenery of the bottom of the heart that Kamenashi Kazuya's lens reflects?

Vol.33 Love

「“To love” means to understand. Maybe it means preparing yourself for the worst for your partner's sake.」

The love from staff and family around me, but I'm also grateful for the fans' love. Of course during lives, but drama and CD numbers are the same. It’s exactly because I always feel the presence of people who love me that I can continue to move every day. )
iside89: (Daiki)
Here another volume of Kame Camera, on the OreOre DVD and Sayonara Arigatou release day!! :D Have you already bought your copies? :D (By the way, I updated the lyrics here!)

-Talking about his complexes.
-Difference between free time and work time reflects on his face...?
-...and what he wants to do with his lover's face xD

Thanks [ profile] scorch66 for the English betaread!


What's the scenery of the bottom of the heart that Kamenashi Kazuya's lens reflects?

Vol. 32 顔 Face

「I think one's face is created by the power of expressions more than features. For this reason especially, I want to convey my sincere love with my expressions more than words.」

in my private time I want to be as sloppy as possible while I relax. That change of switch is fun. That is, the face I have during filming and the face I have when I'm on holiday is totally different. )
iside89: (Nao)
After a long hiatus, Kame Camera is back :D I found some time to translate and here it is.


-Kame comments about his leaving school.
-How he feels he has learned after that.
-Of course, our usual comment about love XD

Thanks to [ profile] scorch66 for the English betaread as always!


What's the scenery of the bottom of the heart that Kamenashi Kazuya's lens reflects?

Vol.31 学ぶ To learn

「To study not by being forced by someone but as my heart leads me, is fun.」

For this reason even now from time to time, when the topic “school life” comes up, I feel just a tad lonesome. )
iside89: (Daiki)
As first thing, I've always forgotten to write it in the entries but more than 1 month ago I adjusted FtF lyrics xD You find them here if you still need them xD
RL is really exhausting recently, so this explains my present hiatus.

-His ways to relieve stress and enjoy even hard schedules.
-Talks about limits of being an idol.
-Kame wants to make... plants happy? XDD
-A talk about falling in love, relationships and hardships with a nice "rhythm" metaphor :)

Always thanks to [ profile] scorch66 for the English check ♥


What's the scenery of the bottom of the heart that Kamenashi Kazuya's lens reflects?

Vol.30 居心地 Feeling comfortable

「In work, in love, in human relations: I adapt myself to the other’s rhythm so I can feel comfortable anywhere I am.」

I often say that wavelength is important in love too, but in short, that is the sense of rhythm. Even if it’s a rhythm I don’t know, the fact that I think “I want to try to adjust myself to this girl’s sound” is probably already love. )
iside89: (Kame - Close your eyes)
So here the last Maquia! This time around is very nice, totally a must-read to all of you who travel a lot or love travels :)
-What "journey" means for him
-A quick excursus regarding his last travels overseas
-Paris, Paris and Paris. Why Paris?
-What he seeks from a journey is... fear?

Thanks to [ profile] scorch66 as always, for both the English check and for bearing with me~ ♥


What's the scenery of the bottom of the heart that Kamenashi Kazuya's lens reflects?

Vol.29 旅 Journey

「When I travel as my heart dictates, my sense of smell becomes keener and I encounter unforeseen incidents」

For me, the innermost secrets of a journey are the casual twists of fate. It’s because there’s a fate that I probably visit that place to begin with. ‘Where do I go, what will I encounter?’: it’s because I want to keep dear this fortuity that I move as my heart says without planning as much as I can. )
iside89: (Kame dangan pirate)
There's no group pic for this photoshoot so I had to "create" one (beware of my awesome Paint skillz, yo). But well, it's the red&black photoshoot, the one with Kame wearing glasses and all of them using leather gloves and such...
This is a translation I did at least 1 week ago but couldn't find time to complete before today! lol.

Not a native English speaker translating this in the middle of the night so there might be Engrish~

Wink up 2013.06

Being an idol is a profession which you often become the center of people’s conversation. Many people selfishly create your image; joy and discouragement repeat themselves their own way. This photo-shoot expresses these human speculations and false unstable heart.

In those moments I face him and I say what I really think, but a side of me in a corner of my mind is already thinking 'anyhow he isn’t having faith in me…' )
iside89: (Nao)
I was looking for interviews about FtF single and this time around Ori-Sta hasn't an interview with the whole group T__T But they did interview Kame and he talks about KAT-TUN and FtF quite a lot. ^O^
I actually decided to translate this for one specific reason, that is, because I casually noticed the line “I respect the members” while I was skimming through interviews. It hit me and went back to read the whole thing; I thought I’d be nice to share it since his words are very deep. It's a nice way to celebrate Bem Movie DVD release ^o^

Also, other highlights, are the many music suggestions he gives; of course about the movie Ore Ore; his image he wanted to destroy with this movie; he talks about Udine a bit; there’s a small mention of Arashi’s MatsuJun too. Then, a lot about KAT-TUN!

I'm not a native English speaker, there may be mistakes.

ONLY STAR 2013.05.27 - NUDE FACE

What I actually think, REAL and straightforward

It’s the first time he appears on the cover alone! There’s also a confession about what he feels for the members!?

I have respect for the members. I believe that the reason I can be in KAT-TUN as it’s a natural fact is because the four of them allow me to do so; and in response, me too, I want to have some influence so that the four of them can be in KAT-TUN as it’s a natural thing too. )
iside89: (Nao)
I found the crosstalk pretty cute (especially the mirror part xD), so here it is. I also wanted to share something about FACE to Face (this single deserves more love .__.), but I couldn't find scans from last group Orista or Gekkan Songs... :/ If you have them please feel free to throw them at me xD

So, here we have lots of Junnolove (from members to Junno, and from Junno to himself xD), some troll (especially towards Kame), "what would you do if there was another you" and a short talk about future tour.

I'm not a native English speaker so there might be English mistakes.

() are in the original text. [] added by me.

TV PIA 2013.06.05

KAT-TUN’s new song “FACE to Face” is on sale. Related to the movie “It’s Me, It’s Me” which Kamenashi Kazuya stars in and which the song is the theme song of, the five of them talk about “my style”.
Taguchi is the type that could live forever in the movie’s “Ore-Yama” world. I guess Koki would be the first starting the elimination. )
iside89: (Daiki)
And here the very long special! Many highlights here... of course, I'd say xD
-Baseball love.
-His being an old-fashion man.
-His desire of "destroying himself" to be an actor with more possibilities.
-His being an animal a very erotic man.
-Aiming to be Johnny's sex symbol.
-The true Kamenashi.
.......6 highlights for 6 faces :)

Thanks [ profile] scorch66 as always ^^

“Kame Camera” serial special

Multiplying, everyday!?

In the movie “It’s me, It’s me” he has played 33 roles alone; even in Maquia’s serial he shows us every month a multi-faceted face. But he says that all of those are a part inside of him. “The Real Kamenashi Kazuya” isn’t only one…

I feel that “It’s me, It’s me” movie was the first time I headed toward a place I wanted to go to consciously, as my own will. It’s a desire of mine - destroying the ‘myself’ I had until now; but it’s also an approach toward everyone, I also want everyone to see my destroyed self )
iside89: (Kame pieces)
-Kame's ways of spoiling himself and his cleaning mania switch xD
-Different tension between work and private time.
-What a lover presence means for him.

Thanks to [ profile] scorch66 for the English betaread~


What's the scenery of the bottom of the heart that Kamenashi Kazuya's lens reflects?

Vol. 28 モチベーション Motivation

「A delicious meal, a cool car: exactly because they are a reward to the “me who gave his best” they become mental nourishment.」

Love is a sense of security more than a stimulus. It’s different from motivation. )
iside89: (Doppio Kame)
-Kame's no-rules life xD
-Quoting kabuki's "breaking the rules just after knowing them properly" idea
-Do you think that he would confess to his girlfriend he "cheated" on her or not...?

Thank you [ profile] scorch66 for the English betaread!


What's the scenery of the bottom of the heart that Kamenashi Kazuya's lens reflects?

Vol. 27 ルール Rules

「A world without rules is boring. I want to daringly break the rules from time to time just after properly knowing them.」

I always want to be honest with my heart and I don’t want to lie neither with words nor acts. Inside of me not lying and having secrets are on two totally different dimensions.  )
iside89: (Kame - Close your eyes)
-he describes his "Tokyo trip alone" that he often talked about on TV too.
-what he thinks about the human relationships
-the reason behind him being kind with people he loves.
-explaining that even hard jobs he does alone will become KAT-TUN's strength...

Thanks to [ profile] scorch66 for the English betaread ♥


What's the scenery of the bottom of the heart that Kamenashi Kazuya's lens reflects?

Vol. 26 ひとり ALONE

「The feelings of wanting to be “a helpful human being” for the people dear to me become my source behind my power to fight.」

it’s not a matter-of-fact that these precious people are on your side. They are relationships that won’t grow if both sides don’t make efforts, and there is the sense of danger that any human relationship is uncertain.  )
iside89: (KAT-TUN KZM)

Please continue being the awesome five men that allowed me to meet great people, spend fun time, discover many things and probably make my life happier. Thank you for everything and I hope this year is full of success, happiness and work satisfaction for all of 5 of you. ♥

To celebrate this great day, I translated a crosstalk! It's such a long time~ I translated it from my own magazine so don't ask for scans, I don't have them (I scanned just the cover for this entry). English typos are expected (not my native language).

They talk about EXPOSE, their plans for 2013 (tour and some ideas), Ueda failing jokes after 4 sentences, Kame who want to use Junno's dance talent, TTUN talking about Kame's homerun, and... they will reveal something about KAT-TUN :D

() in the original text. [] are added.

ORISTA 2013.02.11

Doesn’t happen often that the songs defined as very KAT-TUN-like are difficult to sing at the karaoke? )
iside89: (Kame sexy)
-The title ("Addict") was in English in the original interview :D
-Kame's method to get over jobs that are too difficult.
-Things he is into recently.
-A nice present he received ^^

Thanks to [ profile] scorch66 for the English betaread~


What's the scenery of the bottom of the heart that Kamenashi Kazuya's lens reflects?

Vol.25 Addict

「People and things I have been really addicted to become a part of me and clear a path through my life.」

Exactly because I am a person with an addiction syndrome, I also know how impossible it is to measure the power of the moment you can become completely absorbed by something. )
