KAT-TUN’s Kamenashi reacts to Akanishi’s departure

KAT-TUN’s Kazuya Kamenashi (24) has assured fans the group will not break up, reports Daily Sports Online, Sports Hochi, and Nikkan Sports.

At a press conference held before the group’s concert in Tokyo on July 16, the first thing Kamenashi did was send a straight message to KAT-TUN fans.

“I know the rumours have already started but this is not a break up so don’t worry.

“Making KAT-TUN grow stronger is our mission and our dream.

“Akanishi managed to succeed in his solo concert so the five of us need to make sure our concerts succeed too.

“I want to treat this like a new start,” he said.

Kamenashi had also said the group had no right to force Jin Akanishi (26) back.

“He’s (Akanishi) doing what he wants to do.  We can’t ignore that and tell him to stop it and come work with us,” he said.

Fellow KAT-TUN member Koki Tanaka (24) had added that it was the second time Akanishi had been absent from the group so the damage was minimal.  He said the current five members had already established their own five-member style.

Kamenashi had also revealed he had not been in contact with Akanishi recently.

“I haven’t heard from him.  Is he in Japan?”

    Jin ‘s departure might not really mean a lot to the group members but i personally think that no KAT-TUN fan would accept this. We like Japanese music BECAUSE its in Japanese. That is the main reason why we love the music and the lyrics, of course. Going to LA is purely Jin-san’s idea but wouldn’t it be better if he performed in Japanese? The truth is, he was never the same after his return from LA in 2007. And though i would like to have that old Jin Akanishi back, right now, all i can do is wish him luck and a beautiful future full of blossoms.

    As a Kat-tun fan it hurts to hear this 😦 I know that Jin Akanishi has the right to fulfill his dream as a solo artist , but I just can’t see Kat-tun performing without him , I know as a fan of Kat-tun I must respect Jin Akanishi’s decision but I can’t help being disappointed that their doing their own thing now… even though Kamenashi reassured us it just feels like Kat-tun won’t be the same anymore . But I still love Jin-san with all my heart and I wish him the very best in his career and future I will always continue to support Kat-tun no matter what and I hope that everything will be ok between the members of Kat-tun . 🙂
