Takki appeared three times during last week’s Shounen Club (aired 6th August on BS2) – midway through the opening during “Ho! Summer”, then for the talk and “Kareha no Kage” performance, and at the end to perform “Shalala”. But from the clip I have, I can only extract this part. I’ll try to add a HD version if it’s available (when it’s aired on BShi).
Here is the talk session (it was sweet when a Jr fan shouted “Thank you” to Takki for taking care of Kis-my-ft2 and ABC-Z) and the subsequent performance of “Kareha no Kage” (枯葉の影 aka Shadow of Dried Leaf – lyrics by Takki). This version is similar to Takizawa Kakumei 2010’s. But I prefer this one as I didn’t really like whatever he was wearing in Kakumei *runs*
If only he recorded this episode AFTER cutting his hair… This hair is so long, and I don’t really like the color… but he could still pull it off somehow, even though I feel that he gives off a “dai sempai” kind of vibe. I don’t know why, but that’s what I first felt when I watched the talk.
Btw, Takki performed this song during the current solocon too, and IMO, the solocon version is more kakkoii!! I love that one!! That’s why I say we must have the solocons on DVD!
Of course the costumes play a part as well (Takki’s costume during the solocon was chou kakkoii!), the hair as well (I love his short and blond hair!) and the dance-intensive bridge music had a different arrangement… plus the extra light effects. Ahh, I think I’ll talk more about it in my report… Anyway. Sorry for digressing. I’ll post again if I have more clips from this episode to share.
