It was just announced that 18 months after the cancellation of their variety show, Cartoon KAT-TUN, KAT-TUN will be getting another one. The title for the show is KAT-TUN no Zettai Manetaku Naru TV, however that title is subject to change. It will start airing Tuesday nights at 11:58pm to 12:29am on NTV, October 18th.
The show is going to be about KAT-TUN showing the guests things that they will want to imitate in hopes of creating new trends. Which ever memeber has something the guests don’t want to imitate will suffer a punishment game.
The show itself doesn’t really sound all that interesting, and I honestly don’t understand the actual point of trying to create new trends. But the punishment game aspect of it is well worth the watch. Hopefully they handel punishment games better than Yan Yan Jump has. YYJ pretty much does nothing but senburi over and over. It’s become so stale that now they usually edit the announcers voice over their reactions.
I am kind of excited that KAT-TUN will be getting another variety show. Since I like KAT-TUN’s personalities far more than I like their music. And Cartoon KAT-TUN was actually a pretty fun show. Let’s hope that this show actually lasts.
