[TV] New KAT-TUN Variety Show  
KAT-TUNの絶対マネたくなるTV (KAT-TUN no Zettai Manetakunaru TV)
Starts 2011.10.18 on Tuesdays at 11:58PM-12:29AM

KAT-TUN will have a new variety show on late Tuesday nights on NTV. 'Manetakunaru' is a conjugation of the verb maneru - 'to mimic; to imitate'. So, people and stuff KT definitely wants to mimic/imitate/etc. For example, for Kame, it would be gourmet/sports, Koki music/latest things in the spotlight, Maru new products, etc.

Members will research all kinds of things and present the contents/results to their guests. Three guests will judge and even if just one person decides 'Manetakunai (Don't want to copy/imitate)', the members will be subject to batsu games (punishment games).

Basically, at the moment, it sounds similar to Season 3 of Cartoon KAT-TUN with some twists. Details are not yet known on if the members will be researching individually or on different teams, etc.

EDIT: Read a translated article at Tokyograph here.


Note: Unfortunately, I'm on my way out, but will update with details immediately later. Bottom line: NEW KAT-TUN BANGUMI~!!!

ETA 10/11: Official NTV website (http://www.ntv.co.jp/kzm/) opens.

ETA 10/18: According to the first episode of KZM, the show will have a limited run until December for a total of 10 episodes. :(

The "I want to imitate/I don't want to imitate" reminds me of Akan keisatsu vote system. it sounds so so amusing~ :D

Thanks for the GREATEST INFO of the year **

my guess: in december NEWS and KAT-TUN really are combining temporarily so they can't do the show by themselves anymore.
