Hideaki Takizawa’s SNS Launch Akanishi’s Army Shows Unity with Immediate Reaction
Hideaki Takizawa, aka “Tackey,” who left Johnny’s at the end of October, has opened a Twitter account.
The account name is “Hideaki Hideaki Takizawa” and his profile column reads “Adventurer.” The icon is a photo of Takizawa in protective gear with a red magma in the background. Takizawa is such a volcano enthusiast that he did an undercover investigation of a volcano in the Republic of Vanuatu for a variety TV show in 2001.
The photo was reported simultaneously on April 7, and at first there was some doubt as to whether it was him or not, but it was later confirmed by former “KAT-TUN” member Jin Akanishi, who quit Johnny’s in 2002, that it was Takizawa himself. However, former “KAT-TUN” member Jin Akanishi, who quit the Japaneseses in 2002, took to Twitter and wrote
I watched “Witch’s Condition.
The film was quickly spread when former “KAT-TUN” member Akanishi retweeted Takizawa on Twitter, saying, “I watched ‘Witch’s Conditions. The title of the drama “Witch’s Condition” is the title of the drama in which Mr. Takizawa and Nanako Matsushima starred together in 1999.
Akanishi refers to Takky as his “older brother,” and given the nature of their relationship, it is hard to believe that Akanishi would retweet without checking to see if it was Takky or not.
In fact, Akanishi’s tweet triggered the “resigning Janis” to start talking about Takizawa one after another. Tomohisa Yamashita said
I’ve always loved my senpai.
He has always been my favorite senior. Ryo Nishikido, a former member of Kanjani Eight also tweeted
Boss is coming!
and welcomed Takizawa’s new account. Akanishi, Yamashita, and Nishikido were once known as the “Akanishi Gundan.”
Former NEWS member Yuya Tegoshi also took to Twitter
He is a reliable senior who took me under his wings.
He is a reliable senior who took me under his wings. In addition, Junnosuke Taguchi, formerly of KAT-TUN, and former Johnny’s Jr. member Akira Abe also retweeted the same account. The same account was also retweeted by Junnosuke Taguchi, formerly of KAT-TUN, and former Johnny’s Jr. According to a person familiar with Johnny’s.
He is so loved by his juniors. Many former members of the group are indebted to Tackey, and their simultaneous retweets are a statement of intent: ‘We are on your side.
At this point, it seems unlikely that there will be any further developments, but we did not expect Akanishi and Yamashita to react instantly, let alone Tackey’s opening of Twitter. I think there are some people, including some fans, who are worried that it will turn into a big “wave.
What is even stranger is that on the same day that Tackey’s Twitter account went viral, former “King & Prince” member Prince’s Genki Iwahashi posted a long message on Instagram on the same day that Tackey’s tweet was reported. Three members of King & Prince, Shiyou Hirano, Yuta Jinguji, and Yuta Kishi, will leave the group next May, and each will leave the office.
Iwahashi said on Instagram
“In the past few days, I myself have been going through a lot of emotional closure.
Iwahashi opened with the following words
I myself left Johnny’s at the end of March 2021. At that time, I felt loneliness, fear, courage, and determination that I had never experienced in my life. I am proud from the bottom of my heart that the three of us made such an important decision in our lives.
The members of the group have also expressed their feelings, saying such things as “Some of the members who left KINPRISE are still with us.
There is talk that some of the members who left Kimpuri will join Tackey. In the old days of the entertainment industry, it was possible to pass a condition such as “No activity for two years after transferring,” but the times are different now. Restricting an individual’s place of work may be against the law…” (Sports newspaper reporter)
Will all the “quitting Janis” gather around Tackey?
