iside89: (Kame Winter)
This is the 4th Kame Camera special, released in September :D Quite a long issue, but totally a must-read not only for Kame fans, but all KAT-TUN fans! Because his words regarding the group KAT-TUN and its members are really so touching!

Theme is ROOTS. Three journeys for three milestones. So, highlights:
-his hometown, his reputation as the friendly and girl-lover (!) member of the "Four Naughty Kamenashi Brothers" XD
-his 20 years old, the most difficult period of his life, with its painful memories and when being popular scared and suffucated him.
-KAT-TUN and their new story: starting again as four, how their relationship is "more than mere work colleagues", the "sense of responsibility" toward the group and... the smart retort made by the journalist: he talks about KAT-TUN as he'd talk about a wife! XD

This time the pictures Kame took were placed in the last corner!

A huge thanks [livejournal.com profile] scorch66 for her very fast English check ♥


Kame Camera Special


The places that created me. The places I must be at.

KAMENASHI KAZUYA'S 「ROOTS」

As an individual human being, as a media personality, as KAT-TUN. He visited three precious places that gave birth to and raised Kamenashi Kazuya. Three journeys which trace back to his roots.

special 4

I can't look objectively at my own group, but I think it's a fun and original group (laughs) If I had been in another group, I believe I'd have become a completely different person. And especially us, we're a group hit by a huge raging wave two times now even. Every time one of these angry waves came, we had to steel ourselves for mapping out our future as a group, and we have made strenuous efforts thinking, “we have to stand firm in one way or another”. )
iside89: (KAT-TUN BBQ)
I was asked to describe how the concert was, after I did a small report for Junno's solo, so I decided to write it completely and post it on LJ without splitting it in a million tweets. It's ages I don't write a report (I have never finished writing the Katsumode's either which is still half-done somewhere in my laptop, orz), I'm too busy or lazy T_T Anyway, here I am! ^^

---DISCLAIMER: I write this for a) personal record, b) for whoever can't attend concerts (ex: living overseas etc). Although, when a DVD will be released, I warmly suggest you to buy it for many reasons. First, “support the artist”. Especially as foreigner fans, this is the only thing we can actually do if we aren't living in Japan. Second, I don't know if and where this tour will be recorded, but if it will, as I'll write many times in this report, the visual effects and VTRs used here SO DESERVE to be seen at high quality that only a DVD (BD?) can give you.

---DISCLAIMER 2: being detailed, SUPER HUGE SPOILERS AHEAD. If you plan to attend the concerts, DON'T READ. I'm serious, it'll ruin you the fun, it's way better to go and not knowing anything (I avoided spoilers too and it TOTALLY deserved it).
If you want to keep surprise for the DVD, DON'T READ either. I don't want people saying "if you are so detailed you will ruin the fun to others" or "you spoiled the fun". I WARNED YOU. I can't take resposibilities for unresponsible curious people who ignore a huge ass red warning and willingfully click on a hidden spoiler LJ cut.
Repos of the Mcs (so, no spoilers on direction/effects/performances) I attended will be posted on a second entry due to character limits so wait for those if you want KT cuteness but don't want spoilers about the concert itself.

---DISCLAIMER 3: having a setlist some kind fan wrote down helped me recalling many things and being as detailed as possible, but I'm still using only my memory, some notes I wrote down after coming back home, plus some tweets I saved from other fans, so some songs are lacking descriptions, and what I report isn't a literal translation of what was said, and descriptions of choreo and stage might have some differences depending on my memories and venues, etc etc.

KAT-TUN come Here Live tour 2014 ~ in Yokohama (2014.07.26/27)
BIG ASS FANREPORT AHEAD. HUGE HUGE HUGE SPOILERS AHEAD. DON'T READ IF YOU DON'T WANT TO READ A VERY DETAILED CONCERT DESCRIPTION. )


This is the best I could produce (and it took me a whole day!). I hope it helped you giving you some more vivid visuals and connecting what we've seen on tv to the proper moments, and calmed your hunger before DVD release.
Feel free to share the link to this report but don't claim as yours! Leave a comment if you have appreciated ^^
I'll friend-lock or delete it anytime I receive some official complain or stuff like that, or I see this post reposted somewhere else etc.
iside89: (Uepi Rawrr)
Their recent crosstalks are so lovely and full of info about single, songs and album ♥

So, here...
-Hints to the tour pamphlet (and Kame wanting to bring home the huge props because are cute lol)
-Disquisitions about Kame and Junno hairstyles (of course, again)
-Nakamaru's English pronounciation
-Short comments about the other songs in the single.
-Ueda actually doesn't like running!


TV GUIDE 2014.06.04
KAT-TUN FACT CHECK

KAT-TUN hold hands and reveal shocking truth regarding the members!!

Immagine (credits vivienchenvc on weibo)

About English, I'm putting efforts so that our foreigner fans will listen and won't think “What is this guy saying!?”. )
iside89: (KAT-TUN BBQ)
I did this translation when it was released, caught by their answers to the question "your ideal girl's room" guys, you must be such a pain to date orz
But then I had problems finding all pages in decent quality to be read (orz x2)
I finally found everything but didn't have much time to check the English again so I'm sorry if there are some choppy lines and typos ^^'

The issue is divided in 1 page per member + crosstalk. They talk about the other members' secret face, some comments about In Fact single, and... what kind of event they'd love to hold with the fans (hint: it involves swimsuits). Enjoy!

MONTHLY TV GUIDE 2014.07 (released 2014.05.27)
If the four members of KAT-TUN came to your house...

Monthly TV Guide 201407 04
I don't know why everyone says that this is unexpected from us. We have always actively wanted to have events and interaction moments with our fans, since the past. )
iside89: (Katsumode)
This was unexpectedly LONG XD Especially because I wanted to translate the BBQ part (KAT-TUN family was too sweet, Kame devoting himself to cooking, Ueda staring at food and Nakamaru-Junno fighting to bring home food for their wives answering to the questions ♥) and this resulted in having lines almost everywhere all around the magazine page in random order @_@ I tried to put them in the right order xD;;
This is the group part (BBQ part + crosstalk). I don't have the pages for the individual member parts.

Please enjoy this article full of member love ♥ Personal highlights:
-KAT-TUN Family having barbeque... and consequent mess xD
-LOTS of Junno love, from everyone. ♥
-Them talking about how women are scary and how you must treat them well because you don't know how they'll react (A MUST READ XD)
-Kame mama sharing the lobster with the kids the game losers
-What's the offensive fan name Junno came up with..? XD
-There are also a couple of journalist's comments about TameTabi and KAT-TUN being too much reckless in their “Boke” moments to the point of forgetting they're being interviewed xDDD

T/N: I kept “boke” and “tsukkomi”. Boke is the funny and silly comment, while tsukkomi is the smart retort to that silly comment.


QLAP 2014.06 - KAT-TUN PREMIUM TIME

qlap1

Kamenashi totally got absorbed by the barbeque; the oldest duo, Ueda & Nakamaru, took the seats far from the grills and only talked saying “we're in charge of eating~”; Taguchi turned out being in charge of answering to the requests of the two older ones. )
iside89: (KAT-TUN Kusabi)
I attempted to write down IN FACT lyrics (kanji/romaji) and translate them! This song pictures such a vivid scenery, like a fantasy world, I love it ♥
It's still a try and I'm not sure of some parts, so there still might be differences, once an official transcription appears I'll correct them! So maybe please avoid copying & pasting it around the web before some official lyrics pop up and I can correct it ^^''

ETA 22/05: I used the lyrics from Shonen Club Premium performance on 21/05 and corrected them.
Translating lyrics isn't my talent at all, so if you have any suggestions, you're welcome :)

IN FACT - KAT-TUN

KANJI + ROMAJI )

TRANSLATION )
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.

Enjoy!

EMOTIONAL TIES


(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)
KAT-TUN KIZUNA

(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: (KAT-TUN 5nin v.2)
With this entry I stop translating manuals :) It has been two years (since June 2011 :O I'm quite a faithful translator~ they should have hired me lol)  and it was fun :) Since August 2013 a new J-Web service has started and there are official English translations for the boys' entries (read here). Translations on Jweb are up pretty fast so there shouldn't be problems. :)
You find all the jweb entries I have translated (round 56~round 78) here. Enjoy :)

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~

DOUBT SOMEONE’S GOOD FAITH




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 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.

KAT-TUN MY STYLE





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. )

I *really* love this song ♥ and I really think the lyrics fit the movie theme a lot!
I thought someone might like to know what they're singing, since it's related to the movie, so I gave it a try and wrote down the lyrics. ^_^

I did it myself. Writing down song lyrics isn't my specialty, there are some points I am not really sure (italics) so please avoid copying & pasting it around the web before some official lyrics pop up and I can correct it ^^'' If you have suggestions, you're welcome!

ETA 7/17: I finally copied down the lyrics from my copy, so here :)

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥HAPPY 7TH ANNIVERSARY, KAT-TUN!!♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

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
