A5. I don’t know.  Admire……?

A6. I don’t know.  Who would it be~~~.  I wonder who.

A7. Kazuya Kamenashi (KAT-TUN).  I don’t know, but in our group it would be Kame.  Don’t know for sure, but he looks like he could be.

A8. Junnosuke Taguchi (KAT-TUN)

A9. I don’t know.

A10. Koichi Domoto (KinKi Kids) and Hideaki Takizawa (Tackey & Tsubasa).  Tackey.  I wish he could write me a song.  Also, Koichi-kun.

A11. “NEWS ZERO”.  I watch it a lot.

A12. “硫黄島からの手紙 (Letters from Iwo Jima)”.  I’ve always liked watching war movies too.

A13. I don’t know.  Which would it be…pass!

Junnosuke Taguchi

A1. Masayuki Sakamoto (V6).  When I saw him in a stage show, I thought his voice was clear and he was great at singing.

A2.  Satoshi Ohno (Arashi).  One time when I was on the internet, I searched, “Ohno, miracle” (laughs).

A3. Junichi Okada (V6).  I think he’s really good in dramas.

A4. Koki Tanaka and Yuichi Nakamaru (KAT-TUN).  The other day we took part in a survival game.

A5. Yu Yokoyama (Kanjani8).  The person who gave me the phrase, “入り口、出口、田口 (Iriguchi, deguchi, Taguchi)” (laughs).

A6. Noriyuki Higashiyama (Shonentai).  He can do anything, no matter how difficult.

A7. Ryosuke Yamada (Hey! Say! JUMP).  Because he suits the spoilt image.

A8. Junnosuke Taguchi (KAT-TUN) and Taichi Kokubun (TOKIO).  I have a lot of hobbies! (laughs)  I’m looking for proper shoes for running.  Kokubun-san looks like he could even do gardening.

A9. Koichi Domoto (KinKi Kids).  Games, F1…he knows a lot of things.

A10. Shingo Katori (SMAP).  I had so much fun when I was a guest on his drama “Kochi Kame”.  I want to do something with him on a variety show.

A11. “SMAP X SMAP”.  I found it amazing that such a cool group could pull of comic skits.  Seeing this made me want to join Johnny’s.  This was the beginning.

A12. “クロサギ (Kurosagi)”.  I haven’t seen many movies, but I want to watch this one.  I’m also a “GANTZ” manga fan so I’m curious about the movie.

A13. “truth” by Arashi.  This song is the best!

Koki Tanaka

A1. Sho Sakurai (Arashi).  He’s so good at rapping.  He can say it all.  Even if Sho-kun could rap like me, I would never be able rap like Sho-kun.

A2. Satoshi Ohno (Arashi).  He is so amazing!  And I think it’s really cool he doesn’t show off that he’s a good dancer.

A3. Tomoya Nagase and Masahiro Matsuoka (TOKIO).  I can’t choose between them.  I love both of them.  I think Matsuoka-kun is more skilled while Nagase-kun isn’t as skilled, but you get into his characters.

A4. Yuichi Nakamaru (KAT-TUN).  I’ve been hanging out with Hey! Say! JUMP these days too.

A5. Masahiro Nakai (SMAP).  He’s amazing.  He’s skilled and sharp-minded.

A6. Noriyuku Higashiyama (Shonentai).  No one can move as much as him!  Higashiyama-san can dance better than anyone my age.

A7. Junnosuke Taguchi (KAT-TUN).  He fits the youngest sibling, spoilt character.

A8. Junnosuke Taguchi (KAT-TUN) and Ken Miyake (V6).  He likes bits of a lot of things.  He hasn’t found the ultimate something (laughs).  He said he gets bored himself (laughs).  The one who does have a lot of hobbies is Ken-kun.

A9. Koki Tanaka.  Me!  Video games, anime, manga, ancient history, local myths…I can talk about anything.

A10. Tomohisa Yamashita (NEWS).  Once, in “白虎隊 (Byakkotai)”, Yamapi made a song and I wrote the rap and we got the juniors to sing it.  I want to go back and make it properly and play it in front of everyone one day.

A11. “8時だJ (8-ji daJ)”.  Because I auditioned for it, that’s why.  “The! Johnny’s Junior”, the golden age of juniors!

A12. “へビンズドア (Heaven’s Door)”.  I thought it was so cool!

A13. “Can do can go!” by V6.  I learnt it at my audition.

Tatsuya Ueda

A1. Tsuyoshi Domoto (KinKi Kids)

A2. Noriyuki Higashiyama (Shonentai)

A3. Kazunari Ninomiya (Arashi)

A4. No one.

A7. No one.

A8. Junnosuke Taguchi (KAT-TUN)

A9. Shigeru Joshima (TOKIO)

A10. No one.

A11. “僕らの音楽 (Bokura no Ongaku)”.  Because I’ve been on it.

    Thank you for your efforts in translating this. 🙂
    I found it interesting that even though it’s so well known that Kame idolizes Kimura-san so much., he didn’t mention Kimura Takuya in all of his answers at all. 😀
    It’s also interesting that Nino got so many votes for being the best actor. I agree that he’s a very talented actor, but probably his participation in Hollywood movie got so much to do with this? To me, I think Kimura, Tsuyoshi and Nino are the best actors in Johnny’s. I can’t really pick one of them because I think they all have different styles of acting. So, it’s hard to compare them. One may be better in one genre, while the others are better in the other genres. That’s my opinion. 😀

      Thanks for dropping by!

      I agree with you! Personally, I’ve always liked Nino because he plays so many like…boy next door roles?
      Maybe that’s the wrong expression.
      But he plays guys that you can see living down your street. Like, sure, I’ll find a guy down my street who’s a normal guy in their 20s and very adorable.

      Thanks for your opinion too 🙂

    A5. Yu Yokoyama (Kanjani8). The person who gave me the phrase, “入り口、出口、田口 (Iriguchi, deguchi, Taguchi)” (laughs).
    EEEEHHH?!! I got the shock of my life. I had NO idea that phrase was from Yoko ROTFL

    And I was so amused by Nakamaru’s “I don’t know”s 😛

    • 16:57 JST January 29, 2011 at 4:57 PM


      Lol, translating Nakamaru’s part was kinda fustrating actually, because I like him but he hadn’t answered many.

      I think I do remember Yokoyama saying he made Taguchi’s phrase…like, a long time ago.

      Momo xoxo
