[Translation] Nishikiori Kazukiyo on Takizawa Hideaki

An excerpt from Nishikiori-san’s interview in Sports Nippon (Sponichi), 24th December 2008. This is what Nishikiori-san said about Takki:

Nishikiori: (In terms of age), you could say he’s my oldest son. He is a really pleasant guy. I guess you can say he has good spirit towards his work. He listens directly to what others tell him, and doesn’t argue or complain. He doesn’t have any creepy bad attitude at all. There are so many things I can learn from Takizawa that I feel I should be the one taking off my hat to him, more than the other way round.

Nishikiori-san will be a guest performer in Takki’s butai, “Takizawa Kakumei”. He is 43 years old, leader of Shounentai, and a dai sempai to Takki.

    So happy to hear that Nishikiori-san respects Takki so much, and like a ‘son’ to him too. *aaww*

    It’s nice to know there’s professionals out there who respect and admire one another’s works and appreciates the person for who they are as well.

    I really admire that in Nishikiori and Takizawa-san. Takki’s highly admirable, and that’s saying something about a person, esp. for a high-profile Jpop idol like him. I always knew he was such a nice person deep down inside. (a sweet personality)
