Akanishi Jin's Famous Quote Compliation

This is all stuff that Akanishi Jin said in official magazines, media, and concerts.

I wanted to snark at all of these so much
  • Things that I don't want to do, I never want to do (05年POTATO 12月号)
  • I only want to sing the songs I want to sing
  • No matter who the director is, I won't say a line that I don't want to say (movie magazine)
  • I don't want to be categorized by the people around me. The reason why is because my private life is my first priority rather than work. My viewpoint is different from everyone else (Sukkiri → Afterwards, he gets laughed at @ Gokuraku Katou's radio show「吠え魂」)
  • I don't care no matter what I'm told
  • I think the music I want to do will be understood more overseas

  • Because I'm better than the staff
  • I don't want to go on a tour (with KAT-TUN) unless I have my own room (Only Star)
  • There hasn't been anything good about being in KAT-TUN so far. Something good about being in KAT-TUN? If I had to say something, it's that I get pampered (The Television 09年40号)
  • Because KAT-TUN's always been disagreeing from the beginning (Super Morning)
  • KAT-TUN is like a collab (TV Asahi interview & pamphlet)

  • My fans are tolerant of misbehavior so they accept anything for me
  • (About cartoon KAT-TUN location shoots from here-on after) I don't know at all. Member change? You don't have to do that~ It's fine as it is right now (The Television 09年9月23日発売号)
  • I go home after finishing interviews quickly. Slow guys piss me off (The Television 09年9月23日発売号)

  • I 100% can't understand those called idols (strained laugh). Living up to what fans want isn't for me. Plus, I clearly say that I don't want to do it if it's something I don't want to do. Please don't hold a big dream about Akanishi Jin (VoCE 2010年2月号)
