On March 26th, KAT-TUN’s Nakamaru Yuichi (29) graduated the correspondence course in the Department of Human Behavior and Environment Sciences at Waseda University.
He attended the graduation ceremony held at the Waseda Campus and also held a press conference after the ceremony. Nakamaru appeared in Haori and Hakama (Japanese male formal attire), and said with diploma in hand, “I can clearly feel the graduation after receiving this (diploma). I was moved. Since I entered the school 6 years later I graduated from high school, I want to say ‘well done’ to myself back then.”
Apparently, Nakamaru is the first alumnus from the Waseda University in his agency, Johnny & Associates. He learned about welfare and environment, and it took 5 years for him to graduate as he maintained both his work and studies. His graduation thesis was themed “Globalization of [urban] music”, and he revealed that he received an “A+” for it.
Nakamaru also mentioned that he made no friends from the school as he took the correspondence course without attending the campus.
