I think that Tanaka Koki is a talented and versatile person. I admire the fact that he has a very un-JE-like image (even if I'm not into rap at all). According to his group mates and co-stars he is s real softy behind his tough rapper exterior. He sews his own costumes, which would impress anyone and I think he is pretty funny. His TaNaka duo with Nakamaru and he character in My Boss My Hero was great. He seems like a interesting person with lots of layers and sides to him. While not my favorite KAT-TUN member I think he stands out in his own right and deserves props :3

Tanaka Koki is so far the only Johnny that is able to pull off the rough rapper look. I love that he sews designs on his clothing and how he is really a sweet heart even though his image is a tough bad boy. His rapping ability is fanominal as well as his english (the amount that I can understand outside the rapping). Koki is just awesome!

I love Koki bad hair and all. He is the antihero of Johnny who is still like-able and approachable. When I got into KAT-TUN I had Parasite on repeat and Pierrot is on my workout playlist. I even liked his reggae influence on One on One. His metal rap style might be an acquired taste for some but he is the tequila to the other band members 7-Up. 7-up taste great by itself but tequila gives it an enjoyable kick.

I absolutely love Koki. He's not the stereotypical JE-Pretty Boy like the others. He has that rough look to him, and I love that he can pull it off, because the others are just too pretty to do it. He's also known for being a total softy behind his rough look, and I think that it's awesome. <3

His voice is very versatile. He's an awesome rapper, but his normal singing voice is amazing. I almost wished he'd sing more, but then that wouldn't be KAT-TUN. <3

I love how he can pull off whatever hairstyle he works with. I remember the podcast where you talked about best and worst JE hair, and I agree that he's had both, but like you said he's not afraid to try. :3

Tanaka Koki is, in a word, unique. I was way into News when I first saw in him in My Boss My Hero, and I thought he was amazing, but I was totally blown away when I saw him with long-ish hair in KAT-TUN at some point. He has some serious rapping skills no doubt, and his singing isn't anything to laugh at either, even if it has a rough edge at times.

He isn't afraid to go all out and be different from the norm, and it's really admirable. Instead of being the 'popular' guy persay, like Yamapi or Jin might come across if you went to school with them for example, but he reminds me more of that guy with all of the 'bling' walking down the hallway being totally cool with whatever is going on. It makes his personality a bit comfortable and easy to relate to.

I really like how funny and just plain human he is. Even if his hair is sometimes wacky, his skills are evident and he's an intense personality in KAT-TUN - the good kind. :)
