#13: Myojo 2007-07 - Laugh

When I take another look at the essays I wrote lately, I realized that somehow they're almost all about serious matters, about painful feelings, so this time I'd like to talk about something casual. Well, even though I say this, what the hell IS something casual!! Katô Shigeaki doesn't know what to do. Since I got lost when I thought about the meaning and since I want to write about something funny, I decided to write about the topic "laugh".

Moments when I laugh. There are plenty of those. When I'm together with my friends and we get excited over some stupid story. When I remember some nonsense a friend of mine spouted. When I smile at seeing the beautiful cherry blossoms of spring. When I explode into laughter while watching some variety show. When I'm feeling bashful while watching the scene of a middle school couple shyly holding hands. I smile and laugh so many times a day that I'm wondering at the sheer amount (of course there are also less happy times).

The time I laughed most recently was at Koyama's words during the NEWS concerts from February to April. This time, each of us separately addressed the fans at the end of the concert, and we talked about our feelings now that we are back after the long time of no joint activities. This is a moment when you're supposed to say serious words of thanks.

Tegoshi: "There were also bitter times, but that we can be here together now is all thanks to you fans. Please keep on supporting us from now on too!"

Masuda: "Like 'Hoshi wo mezashite' says, guided along by the fans we will continue to give our best. Thank you very much for today!"

In a manner like this, each of us talked one after another, the last one to talk was Koyama.

Koyama: "We put you through a lot of trouble. But we won't betray you again!"

Everyone thought, 'wow, he says some pretty good things'. But then...

Koyama: "I can't say goodbye to you guys. Thank you! ... Goodbye!"

He's saying goodbyeeeeeee!! He's said it alreadyyyy!! Backstage, all the members exploded with laughter. Somehow that's so typically Koyama... But he certainly got his feelings across.

In such a manner, I'm laughing everyday while watching or remembering something... It's fun to laugh, isn't it. Or is it rather I laugh because it's fun?

But I also like to make other people laugh. When I hear a funny story, I feel the urge to tell it to others, and I already told lots of people about Koyama's words. When I see someone else laugh, I also feel like laughing. On the other hand, when I see someone who feels sad, I also become sad. Be it a smile or a sad face, both infect other people as well. In order to make everyone laugh, I want to grow up into a baka adult who can tell baka stories.

The Rough (casual) story turned into a story about Laugh (laugh). Sorry that it is so meaningless. *laughs*

[Note: The pic below the essay shows Shige holding several fanletters. For his essay about "Bonds" - #11 - he received a lot of mail, since a lot of people could connect to the points he raised in this essay. Myojo also congratulates him - his thirteenth essay marks over two years of essays for Myojo.]

#14: Myojo 2007-08 - Tears

Tears. From the moment we are born into this world, we cry and shed tears. Maybe it is because being born into this world is painful and sad, or maybe it is because of the joy to come into life. Before we learn to laugh, we learn to cry. It's a way of expressing feelings that we have to learn before we laugh.

Maybe I'm a crybaby. When something sad happens, I cry, when I'm moved by something, I cry. There are many reasons why I cry, but it's not as if I was crying all the time. Still, when I cry, the tears really flow, and the way I'm crying is so ugly that I certainly don't want other people to see me like this. I remember when I was a child, I was crying all the time, though I don't know why. But rather than being a weak kid who was always crying, I was more like, really loud when I was happy, and really howling with the tears when I was sad. No matter what feeling, I was expressing it loudly.

After I had become a part of NEWS, there were also times when I suddenly broke into tears in front of the other members. When they saw me who had without warning dissolved into tears, they were probably shocked. I didn't state my reasons back then, I don't do it now, and I don't plan on doing it anytime in the future. Because these problems are deep inside of me. I'm actually very embarrassed when people see me cry. That's why I also went to the toilet and cried there, when things were really bad. I always smile in front of other people, but I'm actually quite fragile.

Massu often tells one certain story of me crying. It's from when Massu and I appeared in "3nen Bgumi Kinpachi-sensei", the day when it was time to say goodbye to class 3B. The filming of the last scene had ended, and we each said goodbye to each other on the bus. It was so sad, I couldn't help it, and so I the second year middle schooler said something like, "Thank you for everything until now. It's the end, but... *hick* I- I... *sob* w-w-want... *hick* t-to p-part... *sob* ... with a s-s-smile!", and I cried buckets. Masuda made fun of me: "How can you cry while saying something like that! Ahahaha!!" People were talking in all earnesty, and Massu was like this. Massu who's still making fun of that and gossiping about it. You know, Masuda-kun. I did get it myself, that I was about to cry. I knew it and I still said I'd want to part with a smile. But that sentiment didn't get across, apparently. It's not laughing together, it's being moved to tears and crying together, if possible. And didn't you also cry after the rehearsal of the goodbye party scene so that everyone was worried about you? Talk about jumping the gun. Both of us. Massu is without a doubt an even bigger crybaby than me.

Hardship and pain, the feeling of having accomplished something, the feeling of joy, in other words, all feelings that tend to overflow from your body, they turn into salty tears, I think. It's your heart that has shaped these feelings into tears, your heart which is overflowing so that everyone can see. This is what tears are, I guess. When we learned that NEWS would stop all activity. When we learned that we would come back. All of us in NEWS put our hearts together in these tears that were overflowing from our bodies. And we'll surely go forward like this in the future, too. I'm already used to seeing Massu's and Koyama's crying faces. From now on, may we encounter so much joy that it overflows, let's shed happy tears together.

I don't think he smoke. But i check them by looking at their gums, because it based on it. But I watched Hokaben and check.. He didn't smoke... But he drink.

Maybe in the next few years, he might did. Because, band members can be influential.

Tegoshi only vice is Starbucks... I think....

And Massu's love for food. ^_~

They broke my heart too... Especially Yamapi and Jin... TT___________TT

My friend told me that KoyamaMA is a chain smoker.

Drinking is not a big deal on me also. But occasionally. But, he doesn't look like that. He's a law student and he can't do something like that.. His studies will be in trouble.

If I heard that Shige and Massu smokes.... IT REALLY BREAKS MY HEARTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!
