Posting some old Maquia again!

Published on Maquia 2015.09, released in July.

[** “Green/Blue” is the direct translation of the title, but the meaning is not the color “blue/green”, but being “green”, unripen, unexperienced, immature, naive. In the translation I choose the most fitting word case by case, but please remember that it actually includes all those meanings every time those terms appear]

Vol.51 青さ Green **

「Knowing what is common sense without being captivated by it. I want to be a man with some “inexperience”, with a charm that can't be measured with a ruler.」

vol51

This happened when we debuted and had a meeting about KAT-TUN"s future with the members and the staff. There were many people who didn"t understand the reality and the situation, I was shocked and irritated that the discussion wasn"t coming across at all, and I left the room without thinking. Occasionally, I"m impulsive.Collapse )

Butterfly!Ueda is soooo gorgeous and the photoshoot inspired by "MOON" with the mic stand is ♥

Highlights:
-Talking about Precious One at the end of 10Ks concert.
-Talking about Nakamaru's tears on last day
-Talking about the impact the hug with Kame and Nakamaru and their expressions hit him in that moment.

And FEEEELS. LOTS OF FEELS.
I warned you.

It’s the first translation after months and it was unexpectedly loooong xD As I translated and actually didn't recheck carefully, I’m afraid my English is a bit choppy lol but I liked this interview very much so I had to translate and share it ^^
No pictures because I translated from my magazine copy. (don't ask for scans, I don't know)

-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-

After the “10Ks!”

The last live held in Tokyo Dome on May 1st which starts KAT-TUN’s recharge period gets its long awaited DVD release. This time Ueda Tatsuya, as representative of the group, recalls that “special day”.
He says that recently he’s “playing the piano every day”
The scenery that 55,000 people saw at Tokyo Dome, and the scenery that only the three of them saw…
With pictures that resemble to “MOON” and “PRECIOUS ONE” [performances], we’ll deliver the love message from Ueda Tatsuya to all the hyphens.


It’s a moment where everyone focus and listen: If I failed, it would be like destroying a dream, or better it would mean spoil everything that everyone had listened full of feelings until that moment. So there was also the opinion “do you really want to do it despite all?”. But I said “I will”. That’s how much I wanted it. Because I was sure it would have become something full of meaning.Collapse )

Half done!
I'm curious, how many of you share the same Kame's view on marriage? :)
This time I agree with his view of "timing matching naturally" :)

These Maquia are all 2015 interviews. I wrote all numbers and release date on top of all issues.
**please keep in mind that each Maquia's interview was probably made 1 to 2 months before its release date**

thanks to scorch66 who, as always, read them and kindly fixed my non-native English :)

Vol. 50 約束 Promise

「Instead of fullfilling a momentary promise, I think what's important is continuing to retain your manliness afterwards.」

vol50
It"s the same towards fans too. I can"t promise what I"ll be doing 10 years from now. Maybe I"ll make them have a lot of fun, from time to time I"ll disappoint them. Yet, I"ll never ever make them regret coming to like me (laughs) This is my only promise.Collapse )

Slowly catching up!
I remember this issue hit me as I think it was one of the first times Kame was expressly referring to leaving the group after debut, and from his words it's actually possible to backtime those moments. And what he says after sounds particularly close, despite being said even before 9uarter...


These Maquia are all 2015 interviews. I wrote all numbers and release date on top of all issues.

Vol. 49 風 WIND

「I like feeling a new breeze. But don't live leaving everything up to the wind. You must row towards the future with your own strength」

vol49
I"ve never said it, but actually even I had a period when I was about to be disheartened in continuing being in the group. But every time I thought that, an opposite wind came up and I made up my mind again “I have to do something!”. I was always worried, and my feelings for this group are strong as I desperately continued supporting this group until now.Collapse )

Continuing posting the translation bash~

**please keep in mind that each Maquia's interview was probably made 1 to 2 months before its release date**
This means that an issue released on June 2015 was probably done in May or even April. Some words might have deeper meanings, but some others maybe don't.
Please keep in mind release/interview month when reading.
Please read Kame's words, thoughts, and feelings.

Vol.48 儚さEphemeral

「All people and things are an ephemeral existence. Because they can't keep existing without changing in the passing time」

vol48

For example, KAT-TUN of the debut period left a vivid impression on many people. That moment"s fleeting us doesn’t exist anymore, but it"s fine if the new us will impress in everyone"s memoriesCollapse )

Hello everyone! It has been a long time xD
I am going to repost here my Kame Camera translations that I made for kamesanctuary's Kame's 30th birthday.
Many of you have already read them, many probably haven't. I hope both categories will enjoy them anyway :)


Translator's message:

I didn't think this T/N was needed, but after the recent events, I guess it's necessary.
These Maquia are all 2015 interviews. I wrote all numbers and release date on top of all issues.
**please keep in mind that each Maquia's interview was probably made 1 to 2 months before its release date**
This means that an issue released on June 2015 was probably done in May or even April. Some words might have deeper meanings, but some others maybe don't.

Please read Kame's words, thoughts, and feelings.


Thanks!!

Vol.47 道 Path

「I want to open up my own path, so I'm not neglecting any preparations for my 30-year-old self.」

vol47
What I always think about is that, “an encounter is a farewell”. To be a big farewell, it means that there was an even bigger encounter or it wouldn’t have happened, would it?Collapse )

It's a long time I don't post something... I'll just let you know that I didn't disappear. Next 8 volumes will be posted first at kamesanctuary as a project for Kame's 30th birthday. So please wait a bit more and stay tuned! :)
In the meanwhile...
Kame camera will be 5 years this December. Would you say it?! :D so I thought everyone would appreciate to bathe in memories, and I created a summary of Maquia articles until now. Good for old fans and new fans who weren't here yet.
After all these years some pics were missing. I fixed all of them now... thanks to moveslikekame for providing the ones I lost!

KAME CAMERA ~ what, when, why

Maquia is a monthly magazine about beauty care and cosmetics released on 23rd of every month.
亀カメラ Kame Camera is a regular serial column on Maquia. Complete title is "KAME CAMERA - What's the scenery of the bottom of the heart that Kamenashi Kazuya's lens reflects?"
The issue is composed of 2 pages - one is a picture of Kame himself taken by a magazine photographer, and the other page includes of course the interview and Kame's own taken picture.
Every month, Kame is given a theme: he talks about that theme, what he thinks and feels about it, and as the title hints, he also includes a picture he took regarding that theme, commenting why he chose that scenery or photo. As he repeated more than once, on this serial goes deep on the topic given, exposing facts and sides of him still unknown or being more honest and revealing more details than any other magazine or interview. He has touched many topics till now, like his past, his family, the group, work, his ideal girl, friendship, what's being a man or woman for him, etc.

Maquia's Kame camera started on December 2010 with vol.1, released on the issue dated 2011/2; from time to time Maquia features an expanded special where topic and pages are wider than the regular volume.

So many pictures Kame took in these years... what do you think about them? Do you see recurring themes? Which is your favourite? (For the special issues, Kame's pics are inside the post because they're always more than one)
Let's discuss a bit about this project~ ^^

 
 
your friendly neighborhood Isi
Here the special number, which was published before the number I already posted. This article is longer than a normal Maquia! But it's very very poetic, the journalist really was inspired by Kame's expression during this photoshoot! It felt like translating poetry :) Anyway, enjoy! It's really a beautiful piece (with beautiful pictures).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[T/N: The word the title uses is “to charm, to captivate, to grab someone's feelings and interest”; it sounds like the verb “to show” too, so the literal nuance, referring to the subtitle and the pictures too, is “Kamenashi Kazuya, who shows (himself) and captivates you”. I chose “fascinating”.]
