Kamenashi Kazuya on Akanishi Jin leaving KAT-TUN

KAT-TUN’s Kamenashi Kazuya (24) has assured fans the group will not break up, reported several newspapers.

At a press conference held before the group’s concert in Tokyo on July 16, the first thing Kamenashi did was send a straight message to KAT-TUN fans. “I know the rumours have already started but this is not a break up so don’t worry. Making KAT-TUN grow stronger is our mission and our dream. Akanishi managed to succeed in his solo concert so the five of us need to make sure our concerts succeed too. I want to treat this like a new start,” he said.
Kamenashi had also said the group had no right to force Jin Akanishi (26) back. “He’s (Akanishi) doing what he wants to do. We can’t ignore that and tell him to stop it and come work with us,” he said.
Fellow KAT-TUN member Tanaka Koki (24) had added that it was the second time Akanishi had been absent from the group so the damage was minimal. He said the current five members had already established their own "five-member style".
Kamenashi also revealed he had not been in contact with Akanishi recently. “I haven’t heard from him. Is he in Japan?” (MomoEdgewood's Mediawatch)
