Ok, originally, I was gonna use the cold icon for this entry. But, then I read Matsuoka Hideaki's post in Kimeru's BBS and became warmed to tears just reading it.(T____T) Thanks to Matsuoka-tenchou!!!, all of Kimeru's fans got to hear a behind-the-scenes story of the Rock'N Jam Musical and Kimeru from tenchou's point of view!

It's a really beautiful and sweet post, so I thought I definitely have to share it on my lj.

BTW, Matsuoka-tenchou played one of the people in the same band as Nagayan. His band was the rival of Kimeru's character. He is also a singer, off-stage. So check out his official site if you can. If you want to read his original post on Kimeru's BBS it's No. 20339.

10/27 from Matsuoka-tenchou to Kimeru-kun
Title:Kimeru the BEST☆
Name:Matsuoka "Tenchou" Hideaki

Kimeru-kun, Manager, Hirutei~san, All the Fans,
RJM Otsukaresama + Thank you!!
Up until now, I’ve appeared in a few plays but,
until this one, it’s rare that the cast, dancers, staff, and audience became one and rocked the place.
Kimeru-kun always showed concern for various people at the training hall,
Happily looked through many of his fan letters one at a time, and seeing Kimeru-kun who would kindly come into contact with each one of the girls who came to catch a glimpse of him and ran up to him at the training hall and theatre really impressed me.

Such a kind-hearted Kimeru-kun, suddenly changes once he holds a mic so, at the same time as a mic-switching rock singer, I couldn’t think of him as a stranger and I felt a closeness towards Kimeru-kun.
That and with the [Spoiler Ban Lifted], I’ll also offer one touching spoiler!
The truth is, on the last day of the performance, Kimeru-kun with overwork and a cold, his throat became hoarse and, he was in such a condition that he had difficulty talking backstage.
It was only (for) the last day of the performance, in the first scene that he appears, he countered the coldness with a muffler and Keiko-nesan’s Tennyo no Hagoromo?* rolled around him, and in the middle of the 2nd Act, in the scene where he suddenly holds the toy mic and goes around shouting, Takashi-kun snatched the mic and sang “Kita Sakaba,”* actually it was an idea that Takashi-kun thought of so that even a little burden wouldn’t be caused to Kimeru-kun’s throat.
(By the way, the karaoke where the audience gets up, when Kimeru-kun’s tune was put in, with a shout that’s like Kimeru’s, Hirutei-san sang in his place.)
But, surely ordinarily for the people who were watching at the venue with that kind of situation, with Kimeru-kun standing on stage, they didn’t notice at all, I think he finished it up until the very end with a miraculous power.
I was really touched by Kimeru-kun’s hard work.
Anyway really otsukaresama & may your throat get well soon!!
I plan to also run to AX screaming with everyone!!!
And lastly to the Awesome~Kimeru-kun fans, let me say thanks for lending
me this space!!
[Crossing the fan wall, for all the actors and performances, thank you for your warm support and kirakira☆smiles.]

mizukiaya's notes:
-Keiko-nesan is one of the performers from RNJ. As part of one of her costumes she wore something like a feathered robe or shawl.
-Tennyo no Hagoromo (Gossamer Robe of a Tennyo) is a legendary robe which you can find out the story behind here.
-"Kita Sakaba" is a song from the 80s sung by Hosokawa Takashi. You can find the lyrics and tune of it here.

That was such a beautiful post. It was really kind of Matsuoka-tenchou to share this story with Kimeru's fans. I really think he is a nice person, too. When I saw him at the stage door he was really nice and greeted all the fans as he passed by and smiled warmly.^^ I can't wait to see him at AX, too!

I really hope Kimeru isn't straining himself, too much. Hopefully, his throat and voice are better now. With the weather getting colder and colder each day, I'm hoping he is really taking good care of himself.

As for Nagayan...wow, I was so touched to hear that he did that for Kimeru. He really IS such a great friend to Kime.;___;
Hmmm...wonder if he'll be at the show next week, too...?

Note to self: Must pick up TOP STAGE tomorrow.

yeah...well, hopefully he gets quite a bit of rest after the tour is over. Seems like he may have to go into rehearsals for the Tenimyu in winter show within the next month or so. Well, we'll see when the exact dates are released. Only 3 more days left till we know!^^

Aww...that's so nice!!! How on earth did you find that entry?! It was totally buried in the BBS. LOL!

can I add you to my friends list?
Oct. 28th, 2004 08:03 am (UTC)
Sure add away.^^ I check the BBS almost everyday because u can learn a lot from what the fans are talking about. Some of them had some really good reviews of RnJ so I was just going to read what they had to say about the last show and other stuff. But, then I saw the BBS messages and they were all talking about Matsuoka's post. So I just went back about 2 pages and found his post. He posted around noon and I checked the BBS around 4 or so, so it didn't take too long to find.^^

All the boys are so compassionate, and it's really something I enjoy reading about. From what I've seen, unlike the Hollywood stars here, stars in Japan try to be human and put a human spirit behind their pretty faces, and people react to that well. I quite like it. ^-^ They're all such fantastic people, the kind of people you would actually enjoy meeting, nya~ *Sighs* I wuv Nagayama. @.@

Thanks so much for translating that! <3<3<3 =)

Kimeru's star is still rising...so I hope he does continue to stay like this. In terms of the attention he gives his fans. I hope he'll never turn into his character in RnJ. haha. It'll be great if he continues to write nearly daily postings in his Column as well as continue to congratulate kiriban gets, no matter how popular he gets.^^

Glad you enjoyed the translation.
