Fujigaya Taisuke: Myojo 10,000 Character Interview "Stand by Me"

Fujigaya Taisuke: Myojo 10,000 Character Interview "Stand by Me"

This summer is your debut fifth anniversary. Furthermore, about three years have passed since your previous interview, and I want to hear about the parts that have and haven't changed about Kis-My-Ft2 and Fujigaya-kun.

"Our hairstyles have changed a lot, haven't they (lol)."

That's true (lol). Your group activities are going well without change?

"Hmm, the seven of us have always been frantic to survive, so I don't really have the sense of 'going well,' to be honest. However, what I still think is that after our debut, it wasn't due to our own power that the group took off swiftly, but because of the people around us pushing our backs. I think it's thanks to our senpai, fans, company, and staff that we've made it to today."

As one big happening in the group, the formation of Busaiku by the four members Yokoo-kun, Miyata-kun, Nikaido-kun, and Senga-kun can be brought up, right?

"That's true. It's really promising. The four of them can go to variety programs and regularly bring something back to Kisumai for us. Although of course I think that those four were also conflicted at first."

What kind of conflict is that?

Tegoshi Yuya: Myojo 10,000 Character Interview "Stand by Me"

In your interview four years ago you said, "At tough times I want people to look at me and smile," but I wonder if you remember that?

"Oh, maybe I said that. But that's because it's not just something from four years ago, it's something that I'm always thinking."

However, speaking of the time of the interview four years ago, that was a difficult period, wasn't it.

"Yeah, I suppose."

In the meeting room, when the two of them said they were quitting, what kinds of things did you think?

"Hmm, the other three definitely stopped in place. But I didn't stop at all. Up until that point I hadn't known that Nishikido-kun was thinking of quitting, but for some time I had felt that Yamashita-kun's passion for NEWS had begun to cool."

Masuda Takahisa: Myojo 10,000 Character Interview "Stand by Me"

"My love for NEWS is stronger than anyone else’s," "We have a large responsibility." Do you remember what you said in your interview four years ago?

"I said those kinds of things (lol)"

In reality the withdrawal of two members had already been decided, and after learning that those remarks had been made at a fragile timing when you weren't sure if the group would even continue, those words grew in importance.

"Ohh, the previous interview took place at that time, didn't it."

Yeah. Four years ago, at the moment when the two of them announced their intentions in the meeting room, what kinds of thoughts did you have?

"Hmm, since for a long time I had faintly known that this day would come..... Bit by bit things hadn't been going along well, and that was the day that the final conclusion was reached. It definitely wasn't like, 'Huh!? Seriously?' all of a sudden. Everyone somehow knew it. More precisely, that was the definitive ending day where we clearly heard their intentions from their own mouths.... Of course they wanted to quit, but that timing couldn't be found."

Kato Shigeaki: Myojo 10,000 Character Interview "Stand by Me"

In your interview four years ago (Nov 2011 issue), you said "Right now is period of preparation," but you were talking about your novel, weren't you.

"At that time I still couldn't announce it publicly, I'm sorry I couldn't say anything."

It was also already decided that the members would leave, but it wasn't the time you could say it yet. I remember that something about your expression seemed uneasy.

"That was a rough period. It was like, 'Why am I being interviewed now' (lol)."

Please tell us what you couldn't say back then, starting from what made you begin writing a novel.

"I guess I was 23. I was worried about, 'What is it that can I do in the group?' About right after LIVE! LIVE! LIVE! the relationship amongst the members was strained. The reason was that everyone didn't properly respect each other. Because individually we were going back and forth between being confident and the balance collapsed. It was a period where I really thought I was riding on the shoulders of the members. Therefore I thought I had to take some action so that I could contribute to the group."
