harvest October 12, 2010

emmm… i’m quiet ne.

yeah. i keep myself low… nesting under my cashmere blanket.

i have so many wishes and dreams. and my brain can’t stop thinking this and that. and my heart keep on feeling this and that. waiting patiently. coz i know i’ll get something. [ like a small girl during big festival, i know i’ll get lots of ang pow. and once i receive those pocket money, i’ll keep everything in my drawer. i won’t open the packets. not even a peek on what inside. not even bother to count how much i got. surprise. ……. until i urgently need it. i need $10! …. probably this packet has that amount. slowly taking it out….] i tell you. one of the biggest happiness is when what you think, what you feel, what you imagine, what you whisper to the wind in the middle of the night, suddenly become true 🙂 🙂 🙂 wii~nothing i can say. except bowing myself with nakigao sumairu. maa hontou ni .. BOKU WA KIMI GA SUKI!!

bit by bit, part by part. one by one. time on time. slooowly. i’m indulging everything. yatta. it’s a harvest time. picking all my wish stars falling from the dark sky. these will be part of my soul light. autumn and winter. let’s see… what will happen. now, next!

muahaha, should i just PS suppa impo the bride to amami yuki?!
ii na~ takeno really in-character during filming his war movie last time.
with mr. brilliant karasawa + mao + yamada etc. look tough. *sobsob, kacihan takeno ku. dek menjiwai watak, berat badan makin susut. rasa macam nak antar mangkuk tingkat kat dier*. he already finish filming. so eat well, sleep well. live well. *buhsan-buhsan kalu sunyi, gi le main sms ngan orang tu ye .. nak main sms ngan kiter pun bley gak*

– i gave a small laugh seeing ueto aya’s hair in the drama… haha, doesn’t it looks like yoshitaka yuriko’s usual image? why. coz i’m hoping for yuriko, so the staff trying to fulfill my request? lol. apparently i still think that ueto needs a smooth hair conditioner. emm, let’s see if ueto can be ‘invisible’ just like aibu saki. if she’ll be a good girl here and won’t piss me, i’ll give my pass!

now lisya, gimme reason why i should watch Nagareboshi drama? [1] lots of my favorite songs titled ‘nagareboshi’ [2] Takeno, my luv [3] theme song by kobukuro. my favorite band. oh, my big brother also a big fan of the duo. and my 6-years old nephew too. he watch Utube clips of kobukuro almost everyday and sometimes while eating sushi. [4] Goro! yeay. the reunion of takeno-goro. i wonder how both of them at the filming site. oh, to two of you, please talk more about miho-miho-chan, okay. [5] …*sigh* if only amami yuki or kanno miho suddenly appear as special guests. haha, God knows what will i do. well, since goro is there, i wonder if tsuyoshi or shingo might jump in as the guest in this series, just to say hi. muri but emm, who knows.  … aa, one more thing. takeno probably mostly in blue or white shirts. but who knows if his wardrobe might got RabuJeneHero checkered shirts. hoho. i might import the latest D’urban shirts if that happen.

i dunno. for the time being, i don’t have any expectation with the script. err, the writers are still amateur? but to me, looks like a blend mixture of Ruri no Shima + Merry Christmas in Summer .. and a magic touch of Ice World. …… [pause] …. ah, sou da. i did takeno’s fanvideo few years ago, right? with the intro of takeno fell to the sea .. [bam! splash!] … sort of that kind of feeling every time i enter the drama official site. … shooting stars. suddenly my mind goes to teppei and riko. running and climbing the snow mountain with the leather shoes at matsumoto – nagano. ne, nagareboshi .. had they seen it 13 years ago? i really wanna ask kimumatsu how many times they made their wishes. their fragment of wonderful moments. if i could travel back time. i would like to ride the journey to that moment, that place.
demo, emm… i wonder why i could easily imagine it.

– so many things to look forward. movies, tanpatsu, renzoku of miho, yukie and rena … matsu also gonna be busy with rehearsal for upcoming stage play for her triple roles. pergh, sasuga matsu. aa, october-november-december what she gonna decide to do. aa, i need a good news. aa, i should pour my heart to yashima norito 😀 btw, not to forget, arisa just released her latest Tsubaki SMAP Dear Women cm. she’s lovely in red. matsu-miho-yukie-rena already playing evil, mysterious villainous.. i’m waiting for arisa’s turn. …. oh, wait. did being a member of yakuza considered as an evil character?

– i used to see kimura close with koshiro-san and somegoro (haha, of course :P), then shingo especially when koshiro was came to SmaStation as special guest (koshiro papa is a fan of shingo’s smabistro oishii reaction for period) and somegoro always got teased by shingo. nakai just simply absorbing himself to be a member of koshiro’s family as they have a same obsession which is a Tokyo Yomiuri Giants baseball team. isk, to think of that… nakai-kun should do a special sport program like a game match between Giants and popular kabuki team. tsuyoshi does respect koshiro-san, ne as a great actor. like he seeing matsu’s father as a The Royal Highness. but i’m crack that somegoro was mixing well with tsuyoshi too. nani tte, ‘tsuyo-chan some-chan.’  😀 i knew both goro-somegoro have a buddy buddy relationship. and i’m glad koshiro-san was in goro’s recent movie ’13 assassin’. yokatta, goro was really shining in his role. i wish he can say something to kimura, like.. ‘oh, did u watch my scene with your kanojo no otosan? ne, miteru?’. koshiro-san currently doing his Shakespeare’s CAESAR stage play. meanwhile somegoro is busy with his other-side world which is kabuki thing.

– talking about drama… here comes my colorful fiesta! takeno, goro, nakai, miho in Ii Tomo Autumn SP program. karasawa toshiaki and yasuko matsuyuki too. participants were spilling their secrets of their private life. i was o-he-he-he-he while reading how Goro-Miho in the show. yappari, my prayer already fulfill. i thought Fuji TV going to cancel Ii Tomo for this season. Just because *uhukuhuk*.

yokatta. thnx goodness, ikemen and chicks are less for this season. *YA AYUH PARA VETERAN KITA … BANGKIT! Maju maju… main peranmu!*. but somehow, superb actors actresses and directors sometimes can’t save the show without a strong foundation of script, ne.

sono mama, good luck to all production staff. [oyy, Fuji TV… regarding your promise, how long we have to wait for karasawa-kimura pair? i’m waiting!] i hope takeno and goro were not being awkward to each other since their long-time-no-see. last time in Zaitochi The Last, i was really really happy seeing the reunion of sorimachi and shingo. really glad seeing their good buddy-buddy relationship especially in SmaStation program. for GOLD summer drama, as usual, last filming day… amami gave flowers and a big warm hug and cheek to sorimachi and the rest casts. … [pause] talking about this… why i still couldn’t find takeno-amami BOSS final day clip? she was hugging everybody, much-much-much deep-long time, darou … ehem, did she embrace him? sotto, kyutto. uso. waaa, say yes! just say yes. lol.

Tashika na Koto by Oda Kazumasa

Sesuatu Yang Pasti
[translitasi: nuralisya]

ku lihat ke langit selepas turun hujan,
di tengah kesibukan manusia yang berjalan.
duka yang perit yang takkan berakhir,
meski punya se
titis bahagia mungkin tak ku sedari.

masa pun berlalu, dapatkah ku mencintaimu?
dapatkah ku sungguh-sungguh melindungimu?
ku lihat langit saat ku berfikir.
dirimu kini apa lagi yang dapat ku lakukan?

sesungguhnya jangan pernah dilupakan,
akan selalu di sisi mu tiap masa.

kerna itu lah, kau dan aku, kita di sini.
menghembus udara yang serupa,
hidup di alam waktu yang sama.

hargailah dirimu, sayangi mu sendiri.
andainya kau dalam diam, terkenangkan dia.
saat kau terluka, janganlah bersendiri.
jauh semakin engkau menjauh,  janganlah pergi.

tidak ku curiga, ku masih percaya.
walau luka hatiku ini tak mungkin sembuh.
ayuh cari semula apa yang kita hilang.
pasti nanti suatu masa kita kan menemuinya.

sesungguhnya apa yang paling berharga,
bukannya detik-detik istimewa.
tapi adalah saat biasa ku renung wajahmu.
perasaan ku kini
sama seperti yang ku rasai di saat-saat itu.

ada sesuatu yang masih belum kau tau.
yang ingin ku bicarakan pada dirimu.
sesungguhnya sejak dulu di waktu
pertemuan kita.
ku mencintai dirimu selama-lamanya.

adakah kau melihat ke langit?
adakah kau mendengarkan angin?
tak mungkin bisa kita kembali ke sini lagi.

tapi usahlah difikirkan lagi. kerna ia amat pahit. 

sesungguhnya apa yang paling berharga,
bukannya detik-detik istimewa.
tapi adalah saat biasa ku renung wajahmu.
perasaan ku kini
sama seperti yang ku rasai di saat-saat itu.

sesungguhnya jangan pernah dilupakan,
akan selalu di sisi mu tiap masa.
kerna itu lah, kau dan aku, kita di sini.
menghembus udara yang serupa,
hidup di alam waktu yang sama.

walau apa pun .. akan selalu di sisi mu tiap masa.


instant 1 March 21, 2010

duu, with not-so-good wireless access,

let’s see if i could do this quickly.


nanako matsushima. still rest from acting activity after won best actress for Kyumei Byoto 24 Ji Season 4 Drama last year. she still doing Nintendo Wii commercials… hehe, so fun! imagine how she’s playing around with her daughter at home. btw, Leo The Jungle Emperor anime movie DVD already available. mitai~ her character there looks so gentle.

his husband, sorimachi takashi. frankly, i feel glad. 2009-2010 is definitely his good year. more jobs, more happiness! last January, he began his year 2010 with Yagyu drama [his first lead in jidaigeki with hayami mokomichi]. followed by Negotiator movie premier and promotion. {although i’m not interested much with past Negotiator series.. and his role looks so Takakura-ish – which his previous role in BOSS]. but it’s shigoto ne. the priority thing is to feed his family :). hope will be more challenging and great jobs to come!

…… later, i heard about his new collaboration of Kirin Zero with fujiwara tatsuya and hasegawa jun. yosh! i could sense a nice kimochi wind blowing to me. at last, no more aibu saki in Kirin Zero… yeayy!! then, when the commercial started premiere, my first response.. “whoaa, the return of my beach boy!”… this time, Kirin Zero was using a nice holiday trip to Zero Island as the theme of commercial. pretty visual, pretty sound, pretty landscape with pretty people. sorimachi-fujiwara tatsuya-hasegawa jun were compatible together and they seem click well. i’m surprised coz that was their first collaboration. sorimachi and his smile. huhu~ shiawase! from behind of scene footage, he seems happy to be there and enjoying much the whole filming process. sorimachi is a nature person and fishing is definitely his passion. emm, i would like to see sorimachi-fujiwara working together in their future drama/movie. onegai~

another great thing is to see sorimachi and shingo in Zaitochi The Last Movie. it will be premiere on 29th May 2010. Shingo is the lead role and Sorimachi is his best friend. the trailer already up last time.. kyaaaa~ suki suki suki suki suki suki suki suki daa!! i’ve told you. i have my faith that they will make me proud. i could see a different character of sorimachi here too. yosh, you still can catch up everything again. another person i’m looking in this movie is nakamura kanzaburo [a famous kabuki actor who is Matsumoto Koshiro’s relative]. i hope this movie would be success and remains memorable like the previous sequel.

oh, talking about kabuki… matsu’s brother; ichikawa somegoro was coming to meet shingo in SmaStation on last february 2010. o-shashiburi~ it’s the second time ne. it was episode of Doeramon’s anniversary. shingo asked if he watched anime with his kids. somesome replied that he watched kabuki with his son. hehe. must be cute!

i really wanna see little itsuki-chan [matsumoto kintaro]. not on kabuki stage. but on the TV screen. let him do drama acting, Somegoro Papa-Koshiro Grandpa! as kimura’s son, for example. ^^

oh, ichikawa ebizo (matsu’s cousin) will be in upcoming Smap x Smap. ureshiii~ looking forward to see kimura-ebizo talk. i’m sure his newlywed wife kobayashi mao would be mentioned by nakai too. oh, another surprise info i got… ebizo and takeno seems connected as friend with yoshino kimura and tsugawa masahiko… and kohinata fumiyo. emm, yes. i’m happy to know takeno now start watching butai. please land your foot into that world, takeno. and my wish would be full-filled!

well, talking about butai…

don’t forget to watch amami in Bara to Samurai~ GoemonRockOverDrive butai. and bring another 100 roses again for her… ne takeno, miteru?! recently takenouchi yutaka in D’urban outfits and amami yuki in Lady Oscar-Caribbean Pirate cosplay look yummy. i feel like wanna combine all those in one-stop-display. oh btw, nice development TakenoAmami in 2010 Fumo Chitai. hikhik. i want more… chipsmore.

koki mitani now doing special drama ‘Wagaya no Rekishi’ with sooooooooooo many actors and actresses. well, that is the usual mitani’s style. last time, press was done with the main casts. amami and her ‘brother’ tamayama tetsuji are in … as supporting role. trailers and news already up. they looks good in Showa period costume. {just if takeno could be in the list too. i wanna see takeno in comedy. could you bring him up, mitani-san?!}.

*the line of casts whose gonna be in exclusive cameo in Wagaya special drama already announced. hepi! a small reunion of HERO, BOSS, oguri shun-fujiwara tatsuya to me. and shinji takeda too! wiiii~

instant news WILL BE CONTINUED.

– i miss so much with ShinGoro

– and i miss suki-kirai-suki pairs .. TsuTaku and NakaiShinGoro

– i haven’t track smap for almost half of year, so when i try.. suddenly i miss mori-kun .. and i check the latest of him. mori-kun, hontou ni kakkoii yo! he still super idol of autorace ^^

– because of mori, i rewind back all SMAP SIX.

– because of rena and arisa’s news, i’ve mood to smap softbank

end year magazine photos – for TsuTaku and Nakai-Shin-Goro pair photos

Sanma Smap’09 – for Sekai and Dear Women songs…
[smap-matsu’03 and smap-tsubaki ladies]

Smap Softbank
– for putting Sekai song for Xmas Roof Top and putting ShinGoro together at the back.
– for NY Night, i could see a glimpse of Phantom of Opera bilboard — remind me of  B’z Love Phantom and SmaTour’08 theme [and my kimumatsu fanvideo as well].

IiTomo Xmas Special

–> for Shingo wearing blue white costume .. color of Goro Chef — the power of ShinGoro!

–> for Tsuyoshi won the palm reading and Shingo at the back quietly kept bowing proudly on behalf of Tsu. — remind me how great the relationship of Tsu-Rena-Shingo.

–> having Bakusho Mondai and Tokui — remind me of TsuRena

—> Tsu did monomane as Kasuga [Audrey] — remind me of Miho who is a big fan of Kasuga-san

–> that pink clothes of kasuga audrey — remind me of pink nakai with nakama at kouhaku press and meeting last year.

Stop The SMAP radio
– for shingo mentioned arisa’s name again!
if nakanaka’s diary in SGS radio and kimumatsu’s diary in WUS radio… shinarisa’s diary and tsurena’s diary would be in STS radio.

oh STS also got shinyuko or shinyuuka or shiniijima [haha, shingo always mentioned so many women’s name… but miho and arisa will forever remains smap childhood friends and rena as his good buddy].

Kouhaku 2009

– for NakaNaka again.. together with children kouhaku segment [Nozomi Ponyo singer as Red Captain and Kato Seishiro Ninkyo Helper’s boy as White Captain].

if nakama holding nozomi’s hamd and nakai holding kato’s hand .. it’ll be like a family portrait  —-> remind me of takeno-amami [otosan-okasan] and their BOSS kids photo shoot last time.

– last year Koshiro-san was the jury… this year, Ryo-san [Shingo] appointed as the jury for children —> remind me how good koshiro and shingo .. shingo always took kimura as brother, and matsu as sister[in-law]. koshiro-san must be proud shingo already fulfilled his promise to do musical/butai.

basically koshiro-san is a big fan of smap x smap. besides P-chan, he also followed shingo’s bistro oishii reaction. still remember koshiro-san was really happy when shingo did a great job for short kabuki skit as part of the reaction, when koshiro came as a guest for the third time in year 2005.

Tak Matsumoto’s Favorite 2009 Album
– he listed 5 favorite 2009 albums, one of them is Superfly – Box of Emotion album. which included ‘Alright!’ and ‘My Best of My Life’ tracks … those are BOSS theme songs deshou! yatta, at last something connected between b’z and takenoamami!

i wonder if he also watched the drama .. haha, imagined Tak Boss watched BOSS. now, who’s the boss? lol. to me from my own view, tak matsumoto and nakai-kun got some similar traits ..  they’re 1001 faces, a leader aka mob boss. talking are their hobby. very cheerful guys. although sometimes we could see tak and nakai less of words or smile shyly. thanks to our LEADERS tak and nakai, b’z and smap stay strong!


jane eyre September 8, 2009

got message last week, my friend uchiyama was so excited to watch matsu’s latest stage play. and sarah probably will go around this week. hukhuk.. [envy envy]. yokatta ne.. i wish i could get an opportunity to go 😦 at least for once in my whole life.

hontou ni hontou, matsu takako is a powerful actress.. especially on stage. you should see her. live-in-action. since 16 years old debut, she never disappointed the audience. don’t be surprise if the tickets sold out so fast. and yes, not only locals but foreigners too.

and yes again, a ticket for stage play is considered expensive. and the price doesn’t include with other stuff like brochure or booklet. stage DVD? from what i heard, it’s more expensive than DVD for movie/drama. but definitely you won’t regret.. coz it’s worth.
but thanks to friends..
i got opportunity to watch a FULL version of matsu.. in NODA MAP OIL [with Tatsuya Fujiwara and Noda-san] and Roningai [with Karasawa, Nakamura Shido, Ihara Tsuyoshi, Tanaka Misato, Narimiya Hiroki etc].

other than that.. were bits and pieces. CMs, trailers, footage, long teaser, behind the scenes, reviews and news.

e.g:- Hamlet, Metal Macbeth, Ochepi, Voyage, Summer Hotel, Mozart, SISTERS, Withering Heights, Szechuan no Zennin, NODA MAP Crime and Punishment… and of course The Man of La Mancha.

how to say..
her aura is SOOOOO STRONG!
don’t worry if you don’t even know the language. eventually, she will break the wall. and you’ll find yourself in her magnificent world and she will drive you into a breath-taking journey.

i still remember when first time i watched her video.. a stage of matsu with her father [koshiro-san] and her sister [kio]. my brain just couldn’t concentrate at all with the plot. i was star-struck!! i couldn’t imagine i could see the family of three on the same stage. they’re amazing people – one of the most prestigious family in Japan. if, matsu’s brother [somegoro] or her cute nephew [kintaro @ itsuki] were joining the performance.. i think i’m deadly faint.

ah, they did actually.
last month, koshiro-san with his son, his daughters and his two grandchildren were performing special dance Shoukokai show.
somegoro said it’s the most difficult to arrange it with his two sisters since everybody were so busy. maybe that was the first and last time for the six family members on stage together. i wish koshiro-san will stay fit and healthy. i know some of his wish still not fulfill yet.
hehe, can you hear that, matsu?
taka-chan.. wakaru? 😛

back to Jane Eyre..
this musical is originally in fully Japanese. the music and lyrics by paul gordon. meanwhile the book and additional lyrics by john caird. and it is presented through special arrangement with Music Theater International in new york. this is a matsu’s first-led musical..which she needs to perform 22 songs out of.. err i think, 23 songs in total.

just received news today:
matsu’s latest movie ‘The Villon’s Wife” won in Montreal Festival for Best Director category!! [yeayyy… jump*jumping*excitedly!].
i think that should be a good beginning..
since i could see a very competitive movies from other participants especially from Roma [Korkoro movie by Tony Gatlif] which getting Grand Prix  prize for this year.


11 to 12: rain sweet rain December 3, 2008

rainyYeah i know.. lately i’m sooo lazy to update this blog.. And that’s because i’ve to keep updating other blogs, forums, doing survey, watching doramas and movies.. also hunting new potential young people (e.g Ikuta Toma, Moriyama Mirai, Narumi Riko etc) to become new members of treasure Jbox family.

and here.. monsoon season. so you can expect heavy rain, big thunder and strong wind.. with water everywhere… Yeah, we’re having flood and muddy stuff around. and a day before i was trapped inside the campus building.. damn, cannot go home. coz from front gate of university till the back gate… water from two lakes overflowed.. and so with the nearest river. the scary thing is South China Sea is just at the backside of my campus.. i hope there won’t be another tsunami in future. even in present situation, just watching those black clouds and strong waves.. huhu ~ kowai! It’s been how many days.. 1-2 weeks.. raining almost non-stop for the whole days. Hemm.. only God knows.

now for the  time being, let’s move back for awhile… to the past.

6_0005 Tsuyoshi Kusanagi gonna starring in a period film titled “Ballad: Namonaki Koi no Uta” . Basically the movie revolves around a love story between a Sengoku-era general (Kusanagi) and a princess (Yui Aragaki). And Mr. Director is Takashi Yamazaki!(^^)/ Yes.. the person who directed The Returner, Always and the one who did CG for K-20 movie.

The story is actually based on the plot of the 2002 animated movie “Crayon Shin-chan: Arashi wo Yobu Appare! Sengoku Daikassen.” Previously the animation movie won many awards, including the grand prize in the animation division of the Japan Media Arts Festival. So what’s up with Ballad movie?

In “Ballad”, Kusanagi plays a general of a small state. The princess, played by Aragaki, is offered a political marriage with a daimyo of a neighboring state, and war ensues when she turns down the offer. A key character in the plot is a young boy named Shinichi (originally Shin-chan), who comes from the future. That 11-years-oldboy of Shinichi will be play by Akashi Takei.

The movie apparently budgeted at 2 billion yen; will heavily use CG effect for its battle scenes. The supporting cast includes Michitaka Tsutsui, Yui Natsukawa, Takao Osawa and Atsuo Nakamura. {hehe.. love it.. a line of old skools!} . The filming already begin since September and is expecting to finish in January. The movie will be release in September 2009.

4927f10cc2c93_57252nNakai Masahiro x Nakama Yukie‘s new movie “Watashi wa Kai ni Naritai” (“I Want to Be a Shellfish”) already on roadshow now which start since 22 November aka The Husband and Wife Day. The new movie already tie-up with Mr. Children to come up with a ballad called “Hana no Nioi” – chosen as the theme song. It is a good song. I’m glad it’s from Mr. Children.. but i dun mind if it’s from Dreams Come True. Remember Nakai best re-make dorama “Suna no Utsuwa”? Yeah, the same director Mr “Giant” Katsuo Fukuzawa. Fukuzawa-san is tall and big.. Love seeing him with Nakai doing promotion. They’re like.. emm.. old buddies. Same like HERO Kimura Takuya-Masayuki Suzuki.


Back to Shellfish movie.. the movie depicts the tragedy of a man sentenced to death as a war criminal. Tsuyoshi also here in a minor role. I’ve been waiting this movie for how long.. a year?
Argh i feel old.. but worth for this long-hard waiting. bistro_nakaifamily08 With Yukie-san and Tsubasa-kun.. owh, they’re seriously lovely.. like a sweet nice family! Really good.. the chill-warm and off-screen funny do reminds me of HERO 2007 September Live Promo.
Huhu. Yokatta ne~ Fukuzawa-san picked Yukie as a co-star.
Hiro-chan, you should start getting advice from Goro-chan now!
Ah, I guess that’s the power of NakaNaka ~ ii ne.

photo061205 Takako Matsu was participating as a chorus on Oda Kazumasa‘s new song “Somewhere Today”..  And the filming of “Villon’s Wife” already finished. But does she taking rest now..? emm, no.. still doing CMs, attending interview, talk shows and movie promos. I really love her new Fujitsu airport CM. She’s sooo cuuute with pinky pinkish sweater! And Christmas bell already ringing and buzzing.. so you could expect to watch her new Yamazaki Christmast Cake CM.

20081126mog00m200046000p_size5 gnj0811270503003-n1

The story? Ah, sounds interesting… Miyazawa and Matsu are sisters. And they are living on Mars planet in 1,000 years in future. Somehow both of them once dream of mankinds and trying to recall back the dreams.. and the story revolving around that issue and how they daily life going to be. {hehe, what’s that.. so M & M sisters are sort of aliens on Mars?}. Here the official site

3585dph2 “Man of La Mancha”. It’s already confirmed that Matsu will be together again in this classic masterpiece with her father Koshiro-san on next May 2009.  The official website:

Oh, Btw… an interesting show “Our Era” from Fuji TV. Presented three-conversations together with father, son and daughter.. {should i say something like this is actually the first time happened?} Yes yes.. Koshiro Matsumoto, Ichikawa Somegoro and Matsu Takako were appeared for two episodes of Our Era on last 23 and 30 November. Aaa~ mitai na.. I wanna watch those. But still fine.. coz got written report from newspaper for early episode. And a friend also managed to catch up, watching the final episode. Next!

SMAP – ok what’s up with them.. ahh, i didn’t updating about their new album and new tour concerts yet. Actually all smappies non-stop updating about this group… so, i just let it cool down. it’s ok if these not gonna be hot topic anymore. after all, i’m living in treasure Jbox 🙂 Just a moment… i finish others first.

Rena Tanaka, a prize award, "Paper" will receive Taichi Suzuki, the director of the信二. "I race for the prize of this Paper is worth more than 1 million yen" Rena Tanaka was appointed to be in a panel of judges for Tokyo International Film Festival Competition recently. Applicants could be made from home, and easily being viewed, as a festival for young talent seems already grown. Around 171 entries being made this year 2008 and 15 works were nominated.  Taichi Suzuki‘s “Paper” was selected by Rena for prize award. Rena now busy with filming and spending her free time on new hobbies.

Nanako will be doing a project with Fuji TV next year and Sorimachi will be endorse new product campaign. Father and son will be playing football for Kao Attack detergent. Such a father figure ne..Hemm, i wonder what Takeno doing now… lay down in his cozy hidden cave probably.

Shingo Katori will be acting in Special Drama next spring 2009 for Fuji TV 50th Anniversary “Kurobe Sun”. Meanwhile Goro Inagaki will be in a mystery, suspense dorama “Triangle” with Eguchi Yosuke and Ryoko Hirosue. Shingo will be a lead role while Goro only as supporting. Demo, to me.. whether lead or supporting role doesn’t really matter… it is not something important. i’m just expecting to see another sparkles and improvement to be better and better.

October Apple in Red October 22, 2008

Firstly, my condolence to Ogata Ken’s family.

Ogata Ken was passed away on 5th Oct 2008, at the age of 71 because of liver cancer
which was diagnosed 5 years ago. Meanwhile he was having hepatitis since 8 years ago.
Five days later after his death,
his final dorama  “Kaze no Garden” is broadcasting on Fuji TV.
Ogata Ken is my favorite veteran actor who act with Takeno in Ruri no Shima and Time Limit.
He also act with Rena in Gegege no Kitaro 2008 movie.
One of his most outstanding work was “Revenge with Us” and also
“The Ballad of Narayama” which he won Top Prize in Cannes Film Festival 1968.
Btw, according Daily Sports and Yomiuri news..
Takeno was attending his private funeral and he even carried the coffin.
{ahh, how sweet are you.. my Takeno}

It’s time for Nanako-Sorimachi pair.

This couple Nanako-Sorimachi now are concentrated more on their 2 daughters.
All this 4-members of family were attending school’s sport event.
Both were cheering up to their first daughter,
taking pictures and eating home-made bento together.
Nanako even participated the relay game with her kid and won the gold medal.
Right now she didn’t accept any jobs yet, since Nanako’s giving birth second child.
Meanwhile Sorimachi’s works were not really work.
Demo, as long as their marriage is still strong and happy.. it’s OK.
I really hope Sorimachi could get up and fight back.
Not for his popularity but for his own professionalism.
Takeno is consistent in gaining respect of his work.
So I hope his best friend, Sorimachi would getting back his power..
like 13 Steps, like OverTime, like Ruten no Ouhi – Saigo no Koutei, like GTO

Many times i promised to bring Takako Matsu in her stage plays…
Coz not many people know Matsu and her stage’s world.
Emm, for the beginning.. this video might be give you some idea on how shining she is..

Latest news about Koshiro-san and his beloved son, Somegoro. From what I read in Yomiuri, both gonna work together in kabuki play. But this time, they will bring something new… they gonna be in Edogawa Rampo‘s “The Panther Man”. Somegoro as the Panther Man (the murderer). Meanwhile Koshiro-san as Akechi (a detective). And 3 women will be around Somegoro.. Akechi’s wife, Akechi’s daughter and a dancer. Duuu.. sugoii.. while Matsu gonna release with K-20 movie.. her father & brother will be in another masterpiece from the same famous novelist. But a mystery fiction into kabuki? I guess it’s gonna be challenging ne.. Demo, that will be interesting too. I’m curious to know. Anyway, both Koshiro and Somegoro will perform at National Theater next month which is on 3-26 November.


I’ve told you about this before. Last October, Rena Tanaka was celebrating her 10th debut in acting by starting her portfolio in stage play for 9 days.. I’m really happy with this actually.. because this is what i wish. And I’m glad to see her in yellow. The play titled “Memory Card” – about a good relationship between daughter-in-law (Rena) and mother-in law (Toshie Negishi). They still get along even Rena or Eiko was already divorced and live separately…  Character of Eiko is suitable for her.. She is talented woman. I don’t think she’s got any problem.. but first-timer will still facing a first time experience, na… Looking to the pic, she looked relax and comfortable. [pause] Ok, I take my words back.. when I watched the press coverage clip.. Rena was totally in nerve, nervous mode.. Daijobu rena-chan, you already there!  Anyhow, so good to see her again.. Ah, I wish TsuRena will be on stage one day – with yellow pink uniform.. haha!
Talking about Tsuyoshi Kusanagi.. i found out that he was once worked with Kiyoshi Kurosawa (the famous contemporary director who is well-known in doing horror movies). I’ve heard about Kiyoshi.. but never know Tsuyoshi was in his. Even Tsuyoshi’s die-hard fans never mention it. Emm, or maybe those fans didn’t interested to know.. =) Anyway, the title of the movie is Kourei @ Seance. Tsuyoshi was acting with Yakusho Koji (damn, I love this man!) and Fubuki Jun.  And the genre is .. yeah.. horror. Ehh, chotto… Koji and Jun? Horror? Etto, somehow I was once stumbled with short teaser or trailer on them.. showing Koji’s frightening expression, panicking here and there. Arghh, where I could find the clip again! Iya’ … Ignore Ignore. Let’s get back to the story… A man who went to the forest for recording and collecting sound effect. A girl who was running away from a kidnapper.. trying to hide between the man’s stuff. Somehow he didn’t realize that there is a girl was accidently locked inside his equipment case.. and kept in his garage. Later, his wife found the girl unconciously.. Both husband and wife decided to ‘prison’ her inside their home for awhile – fearing the girl and the polices gonna mistook them as kidnapper.. But then, everything become a mess when the man accidentally kill the girl. What a nightmare.. As the wife was gifted with paranormal or physic’s ability, both husband and wife were haunted even in a sunny day! You could read more detailed review HERE.  It was in 1999. Tsuyoshi who still look cute on that time was in supporting role there. So I guess he might held role as a student in psychology. I found short clip,  you could watch HERE. Kourei@Seance was released in year 1999. I’m curious.. so I was searching more. And I found the movie!! Warghh, hold on! Honestly, I’m soooo not into horror or suspense stuff.. even if I desperately wanna watch it.. i’ll watch in on a bright day.. open all the windows and door.. putting my sofa far far far away from the TV.. and sit with both legs kneeling til my elbows touch my hips.. with my BIG pillow on my face. That’s me.. personally me. But somehow, with my curious.. i keep searching and find another screencaps & detailed review HERE. Whoaaa.. kowaii~ nani soree… what a creepy, soo scary! This movie is based on early 1960s British novel “Seance on a Wet Afternoon”.. But the script was re-write to fit with Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s taste. And it’s getting better! Emm enough. i’m gonna tried to forget the child ghost image now or else I couldn’t sleep for weeks! … Huu, that hand on that shoulder… Iyada~
To erase back all the black black green image… I’m thinking to talk something here. October is the month of kimumatsu‘s LoveGene.. Then i’ll be thinking of red uniform.. Yeah that RabuGene uniform.. the square-checked long-sleeves shirt in red colour. LG dorama which was on October till December 1997 was succeedly to keep putting a fashion trend. Even in year 2007, the LG uniforms were returning back to the store shelf. Thanx to the wise marketing of HERO The Movie. Even Nina Richi was influenced by LG and producing new fragrance used by Amamiya.. plus even create the bottle’s design into forbidden apple shape!
Looking to the shirt, remind me of Rena. I still called her Rena Tanaka, ne. Even her name already changed to be Lena Tanaka.. no matter what, I’ll keep called her Rena.. forever and ever! Up to year 2008 is exactly 10 years since her debut in acting. It was the movie Ganbatte Ikimasshoi which was based-on Yoshiko Shikimura‘s novel. In 1997, Rena was 17 years old that time. Still schooling and living in Fukuoka Pref, Kyushu island at southern Japan. Behind the curtains, the production staff were having difficulties to get the lead role – Etsuko coz her character need to be a simple, innocent, ordinary-look.. suitable for a character of a rural girl 20 years back. Time passed by.. and it’s already 6 months.. but nobody could ‘find’ Etsuko. It’s already more than 200 girls came for audition.. but nobody could ‘be’ Etsuko. Somehow everybody were delighted when Rena Tanaka appeared for audition. She was in her young days with a small size body and short plain hairstyle – really looks pure with her natural charm. Having zero experience, Rena was amazing in giving her professional acting. No wonder she won The Best Newcomer in Japan Prize Academy and some other awards. She’s really an amateur. The filming shooting was only taking 2 months only. Rena was leaving her house for the first time, went to Tokyo for training and filming. If you see back those 5 girls in the movie.. nobody were moving forward in acting career except Rena. When the 2-months filming is over… Rena was returning back to her home, her school.. and nothing changed. Only FAME getting increased! Especially after all her series of Suntory’s Natchan drink CM! Really, I was enjoyed watching those.. she really impressed me in every 15 seconds commercial movies. Btw, Rena was actually starting her work in CM since 1996 and  now still continuously doing photography, publishing photo books and commercial campaigns.
Btw, Nakajima Tomoko (i mean, the other actress with the same name who was acting in Ice World, the one who killed all Nanako’s boyfriends) also acting in this movie as the coach for the team. Somehow I just realized the several similarities.. Nakajima, Matsu and Rena are Gemini! From what I learned, Nakajima Tomoko talented not only in doramas, but also stage plays and movies. One of her dorama was “Rocket Boys” (which is also Somegoro’s dorama). Besides, Nakajima also active in poetry reading and writing. And recently, Nakajima was reading poetry in classical play where she did colloborating with orchestra+jazz+ethnic music. Whoaa.. how come I could know this rare info? Coz I was stumbled with Sapporo International Short Film and Market site.. Nakajima Tomoko was one of the Festival 2008 Jury.. and she was the one and only Japanese who selected to be a judge. ~ Ah, Nakajima was in “Orestes” stage play under Ninagawa Yukio. Ninagawa is a famous director who well-known with his Japanese language Shakespeare’s work. Ninagawa also had been working with Matsu and Somegoro and Kimura.
