First, for this theme "Count Down", I look up the word in the dictionary.
I think that the word "down" means "lower" or "decrease" vaguely, so at first I started to put my thoughts about "8, 2, 1" *1 in the shape.
But I found the essence of "countdown".
countdown [countable noun]
; such as a spacecraft being launched, when someone counts backwards until the event happens *2
Countdown is the act directly before ignition.
In the dark he looks the moment he breaks out the silence in the eyes.
He trembles not for fear but with excitement.
Then, he does his intention he changes our world.
In fact, it doesn't happen so often that the world changes momentarily.
Like us, we don't change much even if we reach at age 20 or 30.
Eventually, maybe we can think countdown and change are born of his determination, can't we?
Then they repeat it again, again and again.
Each stage, each performance, each his way home.
He decides to do, decides to be, and he goes repeatedly.
They give them determination, do and show his act, so they are precious.
Start for Sanada.
I want to have a year full of good things in 2016, too.*3
Like the others also mention, we may think he had a good time this year because there is the word "too".
I'm glad if he thinks so.
This year began with "Johnny's World" suddenly, and he appeared on the stage "DREAM BOYS", so he had much time on the stage than before.
That may be one of reason he thinks he had a good time.
And he appeared on "GAMUSHARA summer station" as MC and Fuma Kikuchi's solo concert "風 is a doll?". (*「風」is the character of "Fu" in his name and has a same pronunciation with "who".).
It may make Sanada have feeling of change.
However, I treat him especially because there is a special event the other Jr. don't have ーー he stared in the stage.
Even if you feel my state is partial, I am I.
I think Sanada is my only earnest, you should let me alone.
In recent magazine, Sanada talked like this.
It was important that I stared "TABU" thankfully.
I worked with great actors and I learned the importance of the hardness in the outside.
Thanks to this, I feel I can improve myself as an actor and as one person.
After we count down every day and second, we welcome the new year, but we can't know where he goes yet.
He specializes on act?
At last, he is given their name?
Or he spends the same time as this year?
Well, maybe there are surroundings even he can't grasp.
Still, I hope to follow him wherever he goes.
With his repeated countdowns, his repeated determination, I go.
I think it is happy if I go like that in 2016.
