Name: Ueda Tatsuya (上田竜也)
Nickname: Tat-chan, Uebo, Uepu, Roba (donkey), Uepon, Uepi (from Taguchi), Uebomu (from Kame), U-chan (from Akanishi). Most used is Tat-chan.
Blood type: B
Birth date: Oct 4, 1983
Birth place: Kanagawa-ken
Tatsuya Ueda joined Johnny’s Entertainment on June 20, 1998. He was accpeted after patting Johnny Kitagawa’s bald head and saying “Bald is good, huh?”
Ueda can both compose songs and write lyrics. His skills are highly evaluated by all KAT-TUN members. For example, in a Shounen Club show, his bandmates Tanaka Koki and Nakamaru said that “He’s an awesome poet.” Sometimes, he also writes to magazines under the column “Ueda’s world”.
Basically, Ueda’s a very stubborn guy. Many people think he’s a narcissist, but Ueda’s described himself as a sadistic person. Whenever he gets excited or nervous, he’d laugh in a weird way (like Heheheh or Fufufu). In the past, there was a while when he kept saying “I see fairies”. But when he appeared on Mezamashi TV, he admitted in front of all other members that it was just a lie. (The fairy’s name is Marin-chan, by the way.)
He first became KAT-TUN’s leader just because he wanted other members to call him “Captain”. However, he quitted later as he couldn’t stand being scolded at during dance practices.
He’s a big fan of L’Arc~en~Ciel and Gackt. He has a serrated accessory of the brand Deaf Breed, which he received from Gackt.
Once, in a summer concert, Ueda went on stage wearing so many accessories that while dancing, his accessories scratched his bandmate Kamenashi’s arm, and made the other bleed. From then on, he doesn’t wear accessories on stage anymore.
His speciality is boxing. He even has a sandbag in the backyard of his house. While he was in middle school, he was in the basketball club, so he’s very good at this sports as well. (There was a scene of him playing dribbling the ball on stage in the DVD “Okyakusama wa kamisama Concert”.) He was very active in the 60min challenge show in Utawara, while being confronted with professional baseball players and also the goalkeeper who used to be in the Japanese soccer team. Later, in the World Grand Champions Cup supporting program, while the service speed was being measured, Ueda had a miracle 77km/h serve, claiming him as the one who has the faster serve in in KAT-TUN. But right after that, the ball rebound and hit him in the face. In a KAT-TUN show, the guest Kataoka Tsurutaro told Ueda that his right hook and left punch are “incredible”. And he even advised Ueda to take the professional boxing test.

Facts about Ueda
* As a child, he witnessed a man being killed.
* He went to an all-boy's school.
* When J-Rock star Gackt found out that Ueda was a huge fan of him, he gave him his special Gackt necklace. Ueda wears it often.
* He joined the Johnny's because he admired Tsubasa Imai so much.
* He is a sensitive person, and is easily hurt by what others say.
* Band-mate Kamenashi befriended him when they formed KAT-TUN and always looks out for him.
* Ryo Nishikido from NEWS/Kanjani8 is sometimes cruel to Ueda. After Kamenashi asked Ryo not to question Ueda about his ambitions, telling him that Ueda gets upset that he isn't sure about it, Ryo publicly questioned him again. Then, early this year, Ryo announced that he hates Ueda most of all the Johnny's.
* Ueda has written many songs, often under pen-names.
* He learned to play the piano as a child, but now prefers the guitar.
* He speaks/is learning both English and French (the same as his idol, Gackt).
* He used to want to be a teacher, but decided against it after realising that he might be assigned to an all-girls school (he says he would be too nervous).
* His current long-term amibition is to direct classical music, while at present he has a share in creating KAT-TUN's music.
* His favourite part of himself is the "sexy" mole on his shoulder.
* He wants to name his future daughter "Elizabeth", but because Japanese people would find it difficult to pronounce, he'd shorten it to "Eri/Eli".
* On the basketball team in school, he says he was very good.
* He sometimes wears blue contact lenses.

I had always found him to be the most adorable out of KAT TUN. I'm more of Tatsuya's fan. I think he has a deep understanding of what he's going to sing which I find to be very admirable. His ability to connect with the words of the songs is truly amazing and his ability to write beautiful songs is amazing as well. =) I love KAT TUN. xDD
