Okay, here's some non-KAT-TUN fannish content:
YAMAPI'S NEW SINGLE IS AWESOME!
No, okay, I have to clarify: the single is terrible. But the b-sides, they are soooo cool! If they haven't found their way to your mp3 player yet, I got my downloads here
, and they're also available on Jpopsuki.
Summer Nude as a song is awful
, just a step up from Hadakanbo. But it redeems himself with a PV that basically consists of a half-naked Pi rolling around in the sand and showing off his flawless skin in HD. Oh, and swimming naked underwater. ( PICS, IN BIG )
Nocturne, on the other hand, has a super-whacky green glowing tentacle
PV, but the song is highly danceable, Pi's voice is lovely, and even the electro stuff really works for me.
And then there is 月の幻, which goes right under my skin. It makes me want to dance, but differently, and the melody doesn't really go in leaps and bounds but I looove what it does. I could imagine these two songs going well together with Hey What's Up, as three different stages of the same summer day. >_>
I'm also really enjoying Summer Nude, the drama. It's pretty soapy, with no real episodic plots, I'm really liking most of the characters and Pi looks even better than he does in that PV, and sometimes he cries and gets drunk and is adorable and heartbreaking and T_____T That drama was a gift to fangirls, really.
I also want to say, just randomly, that I'm really not worried about KAT-TUN not getting 'enough to do' at the moment. (Yes, there is a KAT-TUN section to the post after all.) My take on reality is that there was a tour, and for whatever weird reason it got cancelled, which sucked and is stupid, but when you cancel a three month tour, it's kind of natural to me that you end up with a bit of a gap and don't necessarily have three months' worth of other projects you can substitute at the drop of a hat. Furthermore, as I was going over stuff for this week's KTCafé, I noticed that the pace for singles really got faster in recent years, and outside of 2011-2012, a few months without a single is... not actually all that odd.
So, yeah, I still want concerts, but that's more wannnnnt
rather than panic, which seems to sweep Twitter every few days.
