Tackey & Tsubasa
Tackey & Tsubasa (タッキー&翼) are a Japanese idol duo from Johnny & Associates. Its members are Hideaki Takizawa (Japanese: 滝沢秀明, Takizawa Hideaki) and Tsubasa Imai (今井翼, Imai Tsubasa). Takizawa, "Takki (most often written as Tackey)" for short, is best known for his drama works, and Tsubasa for his dancing ability. They have also been musically successful with hit singles such as "Venus" and "Ho! SUMMER". Their works are produced by Avex Trax.
Before their debut, Tackey and Tsubasa were the top "Juniors" in the Johnny & Associates, a company which specializes in male teen idols led by Johnny Kitagawa. Typical of a junior, they started out as backdancers for better known teen idols in their label such as KinKi Kids (who also had not yet debuted at the time) in 1995, when both were 13-years-old. Through the years, the two have hosted the Japanese variety shows, Gakibara Teikoku 2000 and Music Enta. Besides hosting, the two have starred together in dramas such as, Kaiki Club Ghost Stories and Genroku Ryoran. During the filming of the NHK series Genroku Ryoran, which aired in 1999, the friendship of the two grew closer and they became best friends.
Before their official debut, the two performed together many times. In 1999, Tackey asked Tsubasa to join him in their first duet during the "Johnny's Juniors FIRST concert" in Tokyo, Japan. And in April 2000, at the "Johnny's Juniors Spring 2002 concert", the two performed their second duet together on stage. For this duet, the two designed their outfits, choreography and even their unit symbol (a tarantula). It was after this time that they hosted the two variety shows, Gakibara Teikoku 2000 and Music Enta, from 2000 to the beginning of 2001.
In February 2001, it was announced that the two would be headlining their first tour, called "Takki and Tsubasa 21st-century Showdown with all Johnny's Juniors". Tsubasa designed the customs and Tackey designed the setting for this very successful tour, and for the first time in JE history, two Johnnys were distinguished in the title of a Junior tour. This led to many people believing that the two would debut as a duo like the KinKi Kids. Instead, at the end of this tour, Johnny Kitagawa announced the two would debut as solo artists in 2002. They were planned to officially debut when they reach 20-years-old due to their popularity.
For the 2002 "Johnny's Junior concert" the two were again announced to be the headliners of the tour, and it was during this tour that Tackey mentioned he wanted to debut as a duo with Tsubasa. The fans then launched a campaign asking people who wanted them to debut together to send postcards and letters to Johnny & Associates, imploring Kitagawa to debut the two boys as a duo instead of as solo artists. The campaign has lasted for about a year, but then on August 1, 2002, Johnny announced that they would debut solo. Their debut solo songs would be entitled "Get Down" (Tsubasa's) and "Kiseki" (Tackey's). Yet, as a surprise instead, where the official announcement of their debut was to take place, the two announced they would be debuting as a duet after all. The two solo songs of theirs along with the duet song "True Heart" were the first releases from their debut mini-album, Hatachi (meaning 20-years-old in Japanese), which was released on September 11, 2002. close
I didn't see TakiTsuba thread so I made one...
Tackey & Tsubasa are a Japanese idol duo from Johnny & Associates. Its members are Hideaki Takizawa and Tsubasa Imai. Takizawa, nicknamed "Tackey" (sometimes spelled as its literal romanization, "Takki"), is best known for his drama works, and Tsubasa for his dancing ability. They have also been musically successful with hit singles such as "Venus" and "Yume Monogatari". Their works are produced by Avex Trax.
I like their music, it's really easygoing and not-so cheerful as some other Johnny's are. Tackey is really funny and great actor
takki is the one who attracted yamapi join johnny entertainment....
They just kind of died out, didn't they?
Tsubasa went to Spain to learn dancing from there but we never hear from them again... Suprisingly tackey comes back on his own though. I personally don't really like Tackey but I liked the songs they made as t&t
They both had their own solo things, Tackey made lots of weird musicals and didn't include Tsubasa (!!!) and then his single and all and they just kinda..Started doing their own things..
I really hope they release some new stuff soon..It would be nice to hear some new TakiTsuba again ^_^
Imai Tsubasa's Concert Report and Thoughts about Tackey
Currently Imai Tsubasa is in the middle of a concert tour and performing in small to mid-size venues all around Japan. The tour is titled '☆D＆R ～ an extension★ TSUBASA IMAI LHT', and Imai has just completed his first performance in Tokyo.
Tsubasa "I really got fired up on Day 1 in Tokyo★ Right from the start I gave everything I've got, so I was sweating like crazy♪ I'll continue to give myself over to the music, but also be careful not to make any mistakes! After the show I phoned my partner [Tackey; Takizawa Hideaki]♪
To fans of Tackey & Tsubasa: We're sorry for keeping you waiting for so long. We promise we'll come back again, but please wait a little while longer. I hope you haven't gotten fed up. We know there are lots of people out there like you who are waiting. We constantly feel your love, and one day we will perform again together! We really appreciate your support."
What did Tsubasa talk about over the phone with Tackey? Currently both Tsubasa and Tackey are performing as solo artists. But along with their solo careers they still consider Tackey & Tsubasa as an important part of themselves. The fans' support is a vital source of energy for them, and doubtless the fans will continue to show their love for the two artists for years to come.
I only got to know Tackey when he was already doing his solo songs but I love his songs (and not to tell that he is a great actor!).
But since he has only a few songs, I went to listen to T&T songs, a few are good but I don't like them as much as Takizawa Hideaki's songs.
So all I want to say is: Tackey ganbatte with your solo career!!
Have to admit I don't know Tsubasa that well :worried:
I've seen Tackey all over doing random solo stuff and I really like him.
I do like their duet songs though. It's just hard for me to find them :crying:
I love their music, too bad they aren't making any music right now ; There songs are a lot of fun
I actually love Tackey & Tsubasa. I love their songs, how they are mostly so dramatic, and thier dance steps... Plus they're both good-looking so... kyah!!!
They've been inactive as a group for more than a year but in the recent Johnny's countdown they were together performing 'Venus'. I've got to say I flailed like crazy during theri performance... they still have chemstry together! I love it!
I miss them as a group... hopefully they'll have some projects togehter this year...
I like them, I love their song from Inuyasha! I know I keep saying things like that but the opening song is very inspiring! Hard to find songs like that! :STsmile:
i love their music....
actually for sutsugoi...
it's wonderfull... :RBhalo:

I'm happy to hear their new single 'Ai wa Takaramono' since there's been a long time since they last release Tackey&Tsubasa single...and the song is great and sweet...and the most important thing is tackey give a chance for his beloved junior-tachi...M.A.D. to be in their PV...love all of them~
