Why Meisa Kuroki was offered Erika Sawajiri’s role!?

kuroki meisa

With everything that’s happened with Erika Sawajiri being dismissed, and Meisa Kuroki taking the role of “Yuki Mori” in Space Battleship Yamato; what are the reasons?

Well other than the obvious, [people] are saying that Kuroki fits the role of ‘Yuki Mori’ than Erika. Another reason is that there is speculation with her connection to Johnnys’ talents. She is good friends with Rina Uchiyama and Maki Horikita, who are also good friends with Johnny’s talents. But another reason is the rumor of Koki Tanaka (KAT-TUN) and Kuroki; they were rumored to be involved. So it’s like Johnny’s was quick to approve of Kuroki taking over the role.

Johnny’s loves Kuroki, its like both of the agencies are on a honeymoon,” said one of the authorized media rep.

Kuroki has appeared in several dramas with Johnnys’ talents. In 2007 she starred in the New Year historical play “Byakkotai“, with Tomohisa Yamashita and Koki Tanaka. That same year she appeared with Kazunari Ninomiya, playing the part of his girlfriend in the drama, “Dear, Father.” Other Johnnys’ talents include Koichi Domoto, Kazuya Kamenashi, and Toma Ikuta.

This type of casting seems to be a formula for success.

Kuroki’s agency is Sweet Power. Both Sweet Power and Johnny’s Entertainment have a very good relationship, which explains why both their talents work together, and are sometimes to be rumored to be in a relationship. Kuroki and Tanaka, and Rina Uchiyama and Noriyuki Higashiyama. Maki Horikita with Yamapi, Ikuta and Kamenashi; all rumors have spurred from constantly working together.

With Erika out of the running, it seems that playing in Johnny’s favor has gotten her the role. In these past two years Kuroki’s been starring in drama’s with Tsuyoshi Kusanagi (SMAP), Kazuya Kamenashi (KAT-TUN), Kazunari Ninomiya (Arashi), Yuu Yokoyama (Kanjani8), Yamapi (NEWS), and Koki Tanaka (KAT-TUN). And now with SMAP’s Takuya Kimura.

Who’s that girl? Part II


“I saw Koki Tanaka in front of Kanamachi Station as I was walking. He was trying to disguise himself but I could tell it was him.”

Koki said, “It’s so croweded in Shibuya, everyone is like a sardine, there’s no room to walk. I just kind of felt like I wanted others to notice me.” But walking around downtown with a disguise isn’t strange, is it?

I guess the dilemma is the place in question; where he was at. It’s where his ex-girlfriend, Yuu Kinoshita lives. It has been a couple of years since then, especially since she confessed to someone else there (Toshiji Fujiwara)…. but why would you go to a place like that alone?

“When he was going out with Kinoshita, this is the place her and her friends would go and hang out. It also looked like it was with her little sister too.

It does look like that the girl is his ex-gf’s little sister. Her and her friend went to meet him in front of the station. This certainly sounds like a scandal, especially since he’s an idol and part of Johnny’s Entertainment.

“I’m not sure if he got the other girl’s number, since my friend only heard part of their conversation. It feels like he was trying too hard. He definitely looked like he was trying to get the girl’s number, like he was possesed.”

By the way, about his current relationship, “He started going out with her 2 weeks ago, but I don’t know who it is. It’s possible he was just fooling around with that other girl.”

There are many celebrities like Koki that have a lot of girlfriends. “The ones that look like they are mad, are the cool looking ones.” That was part of our conversation, its just one scandal after another, one girl after another, like a play.

Oh why would anyone give this boy a second look? Even a first one? I’ve heard things about him and it just makes me wonder why girls are attracted to him. Maybe because he’s a Johnny’s boy, but still. He tries so hard at trying to be cool, it makes him look un-cool. I remember when I was in Kabukicho last year around Christmas time, I could have sworn I saw him, but I wasn’t sure. It certainly looked like him, but all Japanese boys look identical. It didn’t help he stared at me for a good while, but that was probably because I was staring back at him because he looked familiar.

Who’s got a tattoo on their arse!?


Koki Tanaka does, so to speak. So I came upon an entry that made me laugh to myself as I was reading it. Then the picture came and I laughed even more, because really, who does that?


Koki is known to be the clubber, the bad boy of KAT-TUN, but really he’s just a wanna-be. If you’re gonna be all that, don’t be in an idol group. No, really, don’t, you end up ruining the image other youngin’s have of being an idol. That or it gives them something to look forward to.

A report from A-san via uwasako:

“I saw Koki’s tattoos for the first time in June,” A-san said. She explains she met him one night when she went to a club in Roppongi with some friends and she also spoke of an encounter with him in Shibuya. “Everyone knows he likes to go clubbing. The event in Roppongi but was packed with groupies so he said, ‘Let’s go someplace else,’ so we went to his house.”

A-san described Koki’s clothes as b-boy style complete with sideways cap and a pair of Tanaka Koki original sneakers.

The group went to Koki’s apartment, which has a view of Tokyo Tower. A-san claims his place is pretty fly but then tells us he has leopard print carpet, thus rendering her statement invalid.

With all his sneakers, his wall looked like a shoe store display. He also had some gold sparkly dragon artwork or something and CDs on display. On his table, which also had a picture of dragon, he put beer, tequila, and gin.

Everyone’s drinking and having a good time and that’s when the tattoo show starts. When asked if he had any new ones he started showing them off. “He has a musical note on his wrist (a clef). I’d heard about it but was really surprised to see it. Koki said Japanese people mustn’t forget the Japanese spirit (大和魂 – yamato damashii) so he has a one that says ‘yamato.'”
This is on the inside of his lip, by the way.

When asked if it was okay him to have tattoos even though he’s an idol he said, “It does look bad, but there’s more to life than work. My private life is important to me, too. I’m only one man.”

Well at least we know there are people out in Japan who are willing to share this info and JE can’t do a damn thing about it.
