POPOLO 12/2008

Akanishi Jin
“Being betrayed by someone you love is hard.”

  • Sad Betrayal

In fact when someone you love changes her/his heart and it becomes a betrayal, it’s a very sad issue. I had an experience of that type myself in the past. At that time I was really shocked and sad about it. I couldn’t even cry it out. If love happens, I want to be able to face my partner earnestly. I have always thought that even if you don’t know how great a future it can be, if that person isn’t a person I can date until marriage, then I can’t fall in love with her. That’s why I want to believe in my partner, put it that way if I get cheated on, it’s really difficult and I won’t forgive it.

  • A heart forced to close
 No matter how much I loved my partner, if a betrayal were to happen, I think I would absolutely break up with her. Like a shutter that goes down… Even if she reflected about it and apologized, inside myself the feelings of love I had for her would at once get cold.

Maybe, I am the type who can only face love with this seriousness. Thus, for this reason, I on the contrary, in this shape of future, don’t want to hurt the other part by betraying her.

This is me,
Nakamaru Yuichi

I am having hamburger for lunch right now.
I seem to have lots of hamburger these days.

I am thinking about doing anything about this.
Have you got any good plan?

Let’s check later what plan will be then.

It is getting colder and colder at night.
Please take care of yourself.

So long~

To all the fans who came to my solo concert,

I am so happy (´∀`)

Since then, my heart grows up more and more.
I put the picture I took with the MousPeace members on my mobile, and keep looking it,
and also the color paper everyone wrote for me.

From now on, this picture is the beginning of out hard working.
They are the greatest members.
When we were together, we laughed all the time.
And we were afraid of nothing.
MousePeace Team Work.

Wish I could work with the good team members like this again.
Wish I would grow up more.

I am having a new dream.

And also for my birthday, thanks for everything

Love (>З<)


Talking about my birthday,

I listened to [ヤンキー片思い中],
while I was climbing the mountain.
We were so tired from running and having fun.

But well,
everyone was funny as well.
We planned nothing,
and then we just came up with this.

Everyone was wearing very expensive shoes, such as boots.
No one wore snekers at all.
I was bare feet though.
I will prepare well next time.

Then when I arrived home,
it was from Taguchi…
Thanks~ ゞ(。´Д`゜)ノシ

And the last,
for those who came to watch my show at Odaiba,

Thank you so much.


Jin Akanishi and Maki Nishiyama caught on a date?

This week’s issue of FRIDAY magazine reports that KAT-TUN’s member Jin Akanishi recently went on a driving date with model Maki Nishiyama. Earlier this month, Akanishi picked up Nishiyama at her apartment in a minivan, and a reporter was able to capture the pair on camera as they drove off.

bout a month ago, FRIDAY reported that Akanishi had dinner at a steakhouse with a “model-like beauty,” not realizing at the time that it was Nishiyama. The two may have developed a relationship after Nishiyama appeared on “Cartoon KAT-TUN” last year (Ep 21 ~ 2008/08/22)

Akanishi’s management at Johnny Jimusho stated that the two are just friends, while Nishiyama’s agency declined to comment.

Nishiyama later wrote on her blog, amused that she had been described as only “model-like” even though she is an actual model. She acknowledged that she had been spotted with Akanishi, but she emphasized that the two are good friends and are not dating.

Koki ~ KAT-TUN Manual Vol.31 

This is Tanaka from countryside.
I am in trouble right now…
’cause I have nothing to write about.
Hey! I do have one.
I went to Ueda’s solo concert.


Just a second.
The lucky people today is those with blood group B.
That’s nice.

What’s else?
Oh, yes.
Ueda was so cool.
He was really an entertainer.
Dam it!
It was so much fun.
I like Ueda’s songs.

Kame-chan hasn’t answer my e-mail yet.
so shock.
When we meet later, I am sure he will ask “is that Koki’s e-mail?”.
Can’t you just record my number in your mobile?

I have got nothing about myself to write here?
’cause I haven’t done anything yet.

Oh, I went out for Hamburger with my younger brothers.
These kids seem to behave nice these days.
When I was as young as them, I have never said “Thanks for the treat, it is very delicious”.

And I helped my Dad’s friend moving.

And I like Rock songs these days.
I also listen to the old rock songs.
I really like Sid Vicious.

The more I know, the more I like.
I really wanna be like Sid Vicious.
I want to sing more rock songs.

And I also went to Taguchi’s, Yokohama’s, Kamisato’s and Kusano’s houses.

Right now…I am looking at Rice with Pork.
I am thinking about having it.
I am eating now.
