Hi there, strawberry. Long time no talk in this thread.
I already listened to the leak for Don't U Ever Stop. Definitely an awesome song. I like how it's like a rockish dance song. Incorporating elements from my two favorite music genres. By now, all of the solos for each member have been played on their radio show. I haven't listened to them yet 'cause i want to wait to listen to the solos when my singles come. I didn't order the one with Maru and Ueda so i'll probably listen to those rips first. I heard Jin's is Justin Timberlake-ish (whom i'm a fan of ) and that he sings a lot of it in English even though most people didn't recognize it as such. Hehe. I guess i won't be listening to that until the cd comes. Bummer. But anyway, i heard the solos are all pretty good. Pretty exciting.
To answer your question, strawberry, the LE of KAT-TUN's new album entitled KAT-TUN III -Queen of Pirates- has a dvd with the PV for Don't U Ever Stop. Apparently, per the product description, it's like a short 8-minute movie thing for the PV. Pretty interesting. It also comes with a making of and 4 bonus tracks. The RE only comes with a 24-page booklet. If only the LE also has the booklet. I definitely am interested in the LE.
Here's the description on cdjapan for the new album along with the tracklist for the two different versions. I'll put it under a spoiler so that this post isn't too overwhelming.
BTW, KAT-TUN did their first performance of Don't U Ever Stop on Music Station, which basically aired today, April 25th.
And i know what you mean, bach_ngoc17. It's just too much money to buy all of their singles. It'll be like buying the album in terms of money. Goodness. I thought about getting all three but i just settled on just two: Kame & Junno + Jin & Koki. What about you? Did you order any of the singles at all?

Right when I was able to decide on the singles. Akanishi's version went out of stock so I just got the other two. I wanted Akanishi's one , I'm going to sulk now. I got such bad luck!!
I wanted to ask Kattun fans how close are the kattun members, do they hang out together? ...I was surprised when Nakamaru says he went to Disneyland with Masuda from NEWS....btw, congrats to Nakamaru for getting into Waseda Univeristy. Do very young fans made up a large base of Kattun's fans?
I have no idea if they hang out outside of work but i can see that they get along relatively well with one another. And yeah, congrats to Maru for getting into a university. I would think that a lot of KAT-TUN fans are pretty young. I'm not sure what age range you're referring to, strawberry. I definitely don't fall into that category since i'm older than all of the KAT-TUN members. Beegeeizes.
lol me too !! i'm not in that category either But it's true tho, K-T has a lots of younger fan base.
From what K-T's member said in many occassions, they rarely hang out altogether outside of works, because they have their own close friends, like Jin with Yamapi & U-kun *once Maru had said about this to Jin *
But they do get along well, i think it's better than previous years. They all getting mature and more understandable about each member's personalities.
Well, regarding the KAT-TUN members, i don't know how they were before since i haven't been a long-term fan yet but i definitely enjoy seeing how they interact with each other these days.
That's great. Actually older gals and younger guys attraction sounds pretty exciting to me lol
Seriously, great that we are all older, that means we are pretty mature and can be more open about our discussions.

lol younger guys are so yummy for mature girls like us , as for me, i need them for refreshing my soul haha...
they're getting better for sure the only difference is the fan-service from Kame-Jin was no longer there. You rarely see Jin and Kame being paired in some project or task tho but it doesn't mean their friendship is not in good condition but in contrary, only that i think Jin doesn't want the 'gay' image on him
btw, I adore the recent performances and interview for both NEWs and Kattun on hey 3...I rarely do becasue most of the time, I think downtown is just trying to be funny without really being funny. so I have posted them below for your viewing pleasure. Oh, I think Pi's smile is just so sweet....esp when he was unexpectedly called to play WilFIT by downtown....what can I say? ... now..that was a truly sweet smile. And I like his hair and outfit here too....
oh, off-topic, I don' get why Arashi and Kattun fans don't get along, I am pefectly fine with you guys...
Kat-tun Hey 3 performances
(if you go to Veoh, you can get a great direct download of this performance same as for NEWs stuff below)
NEWS (yamapi Wil part)
NEWs hey 3 performance
NEWS hey 3 interview (with english subtitles)
what brought on the getting along question was because I was watching an old NEWS hey 3 interview when Ryo said he would like NEWs members to go eat more often instead of just yamapi and him only and he compared the bond in kanjani 8 with NEWS, so I started wondering about Kattun...
plus I also watched this so funny interview of Kanjani 8 on Domoto brothers, posted it below:
with English subs...
just a comment, I think Ryo looks happier and better when he's in Kanjani 8. I don't like him as much when he's with News. he's quieter in Kanjani 8 as well, maybe, that's why...

i haven't watched the subs for K-T's latest eps in Hey3. I like downtown but sometimes they threw the questions only for certain person, mostly kame. Kind of feel ackward for the others tho.
Ahh that's why K-T again rarely hang out tho, once in SC eps i heard from fans report *since i didnt watched it* Koyama told about NewS hang out together often recently and Maru asked back to him "together??* and said that K-T rarely do that and Koyama seems like 'questioning' how close K-T's bonds are compared to NewS's *which made some K-T fans kind of bit angry*
I've never actually watched a Heyx3 talk before even though i have a couple of talks downloaded on my computer. Downtown is at least not stiff like the hosts on Music Station. It's funny how i've seen a lot of MS episodes but have never wtached Heyx3 yet except for telephone box segments. So i guess i enjoy Downtown way better than the MS people.
Speaking of which, since i'm not too familiar with Heyx3, how often do those telephone box segments occur? And are they usually incorporated into the program? I find those to be really funny.
I downloaded the NEWS Heyx3 appearance too from April when the hardsub was released but i still have yet to watch it. Thanks for the download tip, strawberry, but i normally download from the actual fansubber herself. But sometimes when worse comes to worse, i might have to venture over to Veoh to download some stuff.
Arashi and KAT-TUN fans don't get along? Why not? I have to admit that i mainly just like MatsuJun versus Arashi themselves, but i think they're okay overall. I just don't prefer their music as much though their variety shows make up for that. So who mainly has a problem with whom? Or is it pretty much a mutual dislike thing?
