Is Jin Akanishi heading for disaster?

Another movie delay and leaked photos of his wife with another Johnny’s talent, rumour has it Jin Akanishi’s future is clouded, reports Cyzowoman on September 4.

It has been reported Akanishi’s upcoming movie 47 RONIN was supposed to be released in the US this November, but has since been delayed twice because of financial issues, having to re-shoot scenes with lead actor Keanu Reeves, and technical delays in processing the movie’s 3D effects. At the moment the movie is aiming for a Christmas 2013 release in the US. However, this could mean Japanese fans would have to wait until 2014 before the movie hits Japanese cinemas.

“I’ve heard that the Universal wasn’t happy that there weren’t many scenes with Keanu Reeves in them, which is why they’re re-shooting some scenes. Apparently the new version will feature more of Keanu while a lot of the samurai scenes will be edited out. Rumour has it that this includes Akanishi’s scenes too. He didn’t have many scenes to begin with so everyone’s worried about what to do if he gets edited out completely,” said one entertainment reporter.



It could spell trouble for Akanishi, who has had his fan club terminated, his US music career put on hold, and very few magazine or TV appearances.

“He’s becoming a person from the past. When his jobs had been cut, he could’ve stayed in contact with his fans using his twitter or facebook pages, but he’s done nothing so far. He will undoubtably get some media attention when Meisa has their baby in October, but if he continues on like this he will disappear. At the moment it doesn’t look like Johnny’s is looking for jobs for him either,” said one source.


His wife and baby could motivate him to work, but the same source had said recently leaked photos of Meisa with another man might have hurt Akanishi’s feelings.

“Gossip magazine FRIDAY had published private photos of a woman with Kis-My-Ft2 member Hiromitsu Kitayama. They’re old photos, but one of them shows the woman, who is supposedly Meisa, trying to kiss Kitayama who’s asleep in bed. It might just be something that happened in the past, but I don’t think Akanishi would be too comfortable with seeing his wife with a Johnny’s talent his agency has been giving a lot of jobs to,” said the same source as above.

If I'm gonna post the rest Momoedge's articles, might as well not skip this.

well, once the baby is born i think it's a good opportunity for a good PR for Jin.
and I still think Meisa x Kitayama is cute together,

Yes, give him Japanese single,but right now it's impossible, he must be suspensed at least 1 year,then release in US, Japanese might be a little sensitive, with him and KAT-TUN, gain more success in US then after every shit rumors pass, going back to Japan with proudness is better. I just hope he won't disapear like many Johnny's suspensed guys

I know. But that's why I'm pretty sad about this. I understand he needs his US release first before he can made it back in Japan, but. if he improves on his music (AND LYRICS) for US, I wouldn't mind at all. He had huge potential, but none of his US release so far ever leave me a huge impact. They're nothing compared to his Japanese ones. Well, maybe that's just me ^^;

No, i think you're right, he tries to fit in with US's music style, but actually he just need to be himself, he can create rock or ballad but hip hop and R&B seem not really well, he can follow his own style, it would be more successfull if he realizes that, but soon he will grown up and i think his music is more mature after all those scandals, suspend is not really bad, he can have more time to compose deeper music, better than appear in some movie which is not fit with him. I just realize that whenever KAT-TUN up coming project release, many shit rumors about Jin and lately Taguchi throw on their face. I wonder if Johnny is trying to destroy KAT-TUN and Jin or what, they are no longer have any support on them and now they don't stop any rumors at all, it's like they are trying to blow every rumors up

rumors always come up for most every johnny's groups close to their up coming projects, it's not happens on Jin or KAT-TUN only ;)
ohryouchipi 5th-Sep-2012 11:25 am (UTC)
agree, i remember when kanjani8's project coming out, there's this rumor about ryo, and not good rumor of course, hehehe
i do wish Jin's come back with amazing single, eternal and season were lovely, the US release, dont like it much.

Ahhh... so I'm not the only one who thinks Jin tries too hard to fit in with US music styles! Yes, it's exactly like you said!

I wonder if Johnny is trying to destroy KAT-TUN and Jin or what, they are no longer have any support on them and now they don't stop any rumors at all, it's like they are trying to blow every rumors up
THIS makes me sad ;__;

Sorry for bumping in, but why 1 year? That's the first time I hear about something like that.
Isn't it normally 3-6 months?
Especially since he didn't do something illegal. I guess the want to clean his image a bit, by showing him as a responsble father. Waiting till everything calmed down.

In case you forgot, Japanese fans/people isn't really forgiving. I remember a seiyuu was caught in a huge scandal and it took him years before they accept him back. And only after 3-4 years he finally won an awards from Seiyuu Awards, even though he had much more amazing roles during those times. But they ignored him completely because of that scandal. Jin will be lucky if it's only took him a year. Just be grateful.

Was the 'be grateful' directed to me or to Jin now?
However, I'm not a die-hard Jin-stan, but I still hope for him to make a proper comeback. I always liked his Japanese music. Also I don't really ship Japanese dating/marriage policy when it's about idols (in general, not only concerning Jin)
eevaleena 5th-Sep-2012 12:34 pm (UTC)
Nah.. I mean, just be grateful if he can makes his comeback within a year ^^ I didn't mean directed to you, or Jin's ^_~
I'm not a stan or even a fans, I just love his Japanese music. That's all.
lilly0 5th-Sep-2012 12:36 pm (UTC)
Yep, me too.^^ Well, I like him, he was my fav. in KT back then, but I'm not a die-hard stan. His Japanese music is really good though (I wasn't that much in love with his American music), so I hope he can come back.

His scandal still being blown up, mostly Johnny suspend counting by years :"(, he broke the contract and maried secretly, i heard that the contract said at least 30 to get married, if worst, Johnny will kick him out like many Johnny's guys before, but i think Johnny still like him most so i hope that's not happen
