Tackey & Tsubasa

Hideaki Takizawa

A1. Tsuyoshi Domoto (KinKi Kids).  His voice has character, and it has a type of vibrato that when you hear him, you think, “yeah, that’s Tsuyoshi-kun”.

A2. Kazukiyo Nishikiori (Shonentai).  The has to be Nishiki-san.  I think he’s the best in Johnny’s, he can dance any genre.

A3. Tomoya Nagase (TOKIO).  One time I asked Nagase-kun, “how do you practice acting?”, and he said, “I’ve never practised (laughs).  I don’t know how, but I just do it”.  So I think it comes naturally to him and he can act without thinking it through.  I felt like he had something different from everyone else.

A4. Shingo Murakami (Kanjani8).  It would be Murakami.  I haven’t gone out to dinner with him lately, but I remember having fun when we had a BBQ together last summer.

A5. Koichi Domoto (KinKi Kids).  From the beginning I’d admired Koichi-kun, and that’s why I decided to come into this world.  Back then I only knew about Koichi-kun.  I never thought I’d stay this long in Johnny’s, but I feel like I’ve learnt a lot by watching Koichi-kun over the years.

A6. Who would it be……oh, (Yuri) Chinen!  When I went to see “SUMMARY”, he was doing the flying trapeze act.  I looked at him and thought, ‘wow’.  He’s a character too.

A7. Jin Akanishi I’d think.  He acts tough, but he’s really a softy (laughs).

A8. Masahiko Kondo.  Or (Katsuhide) Uekusa-san.

A9. Kazukiyo Nishikiori (Shonentai), this has to be Nishiki-san!  He knows so much.  He’ll answer every question you have, he’s like a dictionary (laughs).

A10. Masahiko Kondo.  Hmmm, we talk about it a lot with other people, but it hasn’t taken form yet, so…….Matchy-san.  I keep asking him if I could direct a music video with him in it, but he says, “you make a video of my racing team if you want” (laughs).  I want to make a video where Matchy-san is singing.  But I guess I have to build up some trust by making one about cars first (laughs).  I’ll do my best so that some day I’ll get my music video.

A11. “人間・失格-たとえばぼくが死んだら (Ningen Shikkaku – Tatoeba Boku ga Shindara)”.  I think this was on TV around the time before I had joined Johnny’s, but I remember watching it a lot.

A12. “スノープリンス 禁じられた恋のメロディ (Snow Prince Kinjirareta Ioi no Melody)”.  This is the only movie I’ve watched recently (laughs).  It’s cute, but it can also make you cry.  I felt like the hidden theme in the story was to always have a pure heart.

A13. “愛されるよりも愛したい” by KinKi Kids.  The song has a lot of memories to me.  At the time it was released I was so busy dancing behing so many groups, but listening to this song reminds me a lot of things from that time.

Tsubasa Imai

A1. Tsuyoshi Domoto (KinKi Kids)

A2. Go Morita (V6)

A3. Tsuyoshi Kusanagi (SMAP)

A4. FiVE from (Johnny’s) Jr.

A5. Masahiko Kondo

A6. Noriyuki Higashiyama (Shonentai).  Higashiyama-san is amazingly athletic.

A7. Koichi Domoto (KinKi Kids).  That’s just my he-may-not-look-it-but-he-is image (laughs).

A8. Tsuyoshi Domoto (KinKi Kids).  Music, drawing, fishing, fashion…that’s a lot!

A9. Noriyuki Higashiyama (Shonentai).  He has an infinite sense about him!

A10. Go Morita (V6).  I want to perform on stage with him.  Do something that packs together all kinds of entertainment.

A11. “僕らの音楽 (Bokura no Ongaku)” hearing Kusanagi-san’s calm voice makes me feel at ease.

A12. “陰日向に咲く (Kagehinata ni Saku)” I saw it at the movies!  I think I’ve seen a lot of Okada-kun’s films.

A13. “愚か者 (Orokamono)” by Masahiko Kondo.  I think it’s cool how it becomes something bigger with age.  I also love all of the Tackey & Tsubasa songs that I couldn’t possibly choose just one!
