Somehow, Ueda went from being the one who always looked in photoshoots like he hated KAT-TUN's existence to competing with Kame as my favorite member. I suspect this may be largely due to 愛の華, which I had on repeat (consequently neglecting the rest of the single) for about a week. His voice, seriously, man. ♥ He needs more solo lines!

I do get the impression that Ueda would like to be a Serious Artist, and that's obviously difficult in JE, and especially in KAT-TUN, which is often the Akame Show With Added Backdancers. So I wish he got more love and screentime, because he seems very thoughtful and talented. (Then again, I think KAT-TUN as a whole is a bit dysfunctional in the member-ai department. I'm an Arashi fan at heart; I like my boybands OTOrgy.) But he's adorable clowning around with Jin; I just find myself thinking on occasion that he would really have loved to be a VK rocker.

First of all I have to say, this is my favorite question so far. ♥♥♥♥
My impression of Tat-chan though..at first I didn't really know much about it, and I didn't pay much attention to him either because I was focused on Kame and Jin so much, but then it was like, all of a sudden there was this adorable cutie catching my attention, and then BAM. He became my favorite and his voice is amazing, and I think one of things that really did it for me, was his Love in Snow performance from Live Kaizokuban, and I swear I never ever get tired of watching that performance. And he has an amazing smile, him smiling will instantly make me really happy and hyper and...yeah. I was extremely excited when I found out about his solo con, and one of the first things I thought was, "He deserves this." and I'm extremely proud of him, and hello..he's hot and he's pretty, whats not to like? ♥

I could probably come up with a different version of the comment above, but well I'm still flailing over the fact that this question got asked, and a non-Johnny's song as well but..yeah. xD

Hehe, another great episode! I really want to say thanks for talking about & linking to that Kinki Kids PV though, because I'm not a really big fan of them but that was just so cute so yep. Hee. I can't wait to see what the surprise instead of the drama segment is next week! Yay~ :D

On next week's question ~

Whenever I'm asked to describe Ueda , I immediately say this :

" Oh , Ueda used to be the awkward caterpillar of the group but look at him now ! A shining butterfly ~ ! LOLOLOL "

Well it's true that ueda used to be REALLY awkward and weird @__@;;
but I'm really glad he's more comoftable and natural now. He has that "I'm-a-delicate-boy-and-you-can't-help-but-love-me" aura. haha. I'm guessing he's a helpless romantic inside too.

My impression of Ueda is that he is an amazingly talented artist. He writes and composes his own songs, and let's be honest, that's always hot! At first when I heard of KAT-TUN I was focused on Kame and Jin because I found out about KAT-TUN through watching Gokusen 2. So initially, the other members were just extras for me. However, it was when I read their individual bios that I fell in love with Ueda! It all started when I went on youtube to see what "Love in Snow" (his most popular song to date according to the bio that I read) was all about. OMFG, I died right there and then. So the seemingly quiet Ueda became the front man for me. He's so cute when he looks serious (so cool) and when he smiles he melts my heart.

To me, Ueda is just pure LOVE. I'm so excited for him and his solo concert. In an interview after KAT-TUN's debut, the interviewer asked Ueda what he wanted to do (see himself do) in 10 years and he responded with, "I hope to be writting and composing my own music for my solo concert." Oh Ueda, it hasn't been 10 years yet, but now you get to prove to everyone what kind of talent you really are. I'm so happy and excited for you!

By the way, I'm getting the Eye-Ai magazine with Ueda on the cover ... I cant wait to get it. I'm so excited by this.

Tat-chan doesnt have a sexy face or impression like Kame-chan or Jin-chan, but his look can KILL! im telling you :P his voice is adorable, too.

To me Tat-chan is a perfect image :)
08 28 08 (UTC)
ahh i absolutely adore tat-chan. from wen i first got into kat-tun he was the first person i noticed actually. I noticed his love for boxing while watching the early episodes of cartoon kat-tun and idk that made me interested in him. his voice is adorable, his mannerism is adorable and him in his chibi days is adorableeeeee. XD and not to mention his arms and abs are insane. tat-chan daisuki <3

I want to spazz about Ueda!!!!!

Like mot people, i didn't take much notice of him when i first got into Kat-tun, but he did strike me as being kind of weird.
But he slowly grew on me, especially when I get to see more of his personality on kat-tun cartoon. He doesn't say much but when he does I crack up like WHOA! And don't get m started on his drawings, they are just too adorable.
To me he seems the most natural among Kat-tun, like he doesn't put up any pretences.It's probably because he's kinda low profile so he doesn't have to be too careful with what he says, unlike Kame and Jin.

Most of all, I love his randomness!

Why like Massu?
Why NOT like Massu?
I would reel off and go into a big list of why Massu is amazing, but he wasn't the one pulled out of the bowl this time round. :(

As for Ueda... I don't follow Kattun so I don't exactly have a opinion of him, but hell, he looks pretty damn good with glasses on.
09 16 08 (UTC) - I fail D= It took me so long to listen to this episode~
♥ The Secret Code pv is sooo awsome!~

"Its not really just about the pretty." I love that! xDD Its true but well..most of the time I am all about the pretty. xDD

Go Ko-chan for screwing up the meaning of the song~

'Smile'...it gives me an excuse to use this cute Heechul icon with him smiling. xDD

The Ohno!effect..I like the idea of that. xDD Though I like the idea of the Ueda!effect or the Notti!effect better. *bricked*

"Push On" sounds kind of dirty~


I can beat that, I was flailing for about 10 minutes when I found out the title. xDD

"I wanna be your lover~" xDD God I love that line. xDD

Two becomes One..why do I think of Seishun Amigo?

xDDD holy crap I made my sister freak out when I started flailing and screaming when [Bad username: goldengutgirl&quot;] started playing the STD song..it was that one right? Anyways I made her freak out..and then she told me to shut up. xDD

Sukiyanen Osaka..its hard to explain why it energizes me, but well I think it does have to do a lot with the energy the guys themselves put into it.
