Super messy Yu Aoi post ahead~

With the release of Haru wo Seotte [trailer] this Saturday, the release of Mozu Season 2 next, followed by Wakamono-tachi and Rurouni Kenshin Kyoto Inferno, all promotions are meshing with one another.

First, Kenichi Matsuyama and Yu together in this CinemaCafe interview.

So this was posted AGES ago, thought that I would post since some fan was kind enough to have translated Yu-chan’s answers (and we almost never get that).

The Rurouni Kenshin poster is out.

I don’t know many Yu Aoi fans who are excited for it, but I know Rurouni Kenshin fans are pumped. I know a few.

Yu Aoi has bangs… I don’t think I’ve seen Yu-chan with bangs since her early acting days. She looks mad weird, and the photoshop makes it look like she’s carrying that kid. No? Maybe it’s just me? xD

Last Jdrama season, I gave W no Higeki a watch. I don’t think I mentioned it on my review, but Emi Takei gave me a strong Yu Aoi vibe in that show. Since then, Takei has popped up in a LOT of projects I’ve been reading about. So much, I only remember saying “ohhhh, she’s in it too?” xD

I think she’s lacking a little bit of the Yu-chan charisma, but she’s okay.

I’ve been re-kindling myself with fandom, so… I guess you’ll see when I post about it when it gets here.

No Nokaze link to Miki is a deal-breaker for me.

Okay, maybe not a deal-breaker, but I was astounded when the Memories of Matsuko banner with Nakatani-san showed up all Happy Wednesday on me when discussing the Korean re-adaptation of JIN.

Sure, we only have like 50 banners… but still, 1/50 chance xD

I don’t know what is it about Hayato Ichihara (or Christopher Gorham) that I find so irresistible. Must be the kind of boyish charm, huh? I suddenly ran into Hayato Ichihara on NHK (so lucky I changed the channel!) where he talked about his new NHK project, A Tree in the Sun (陽だまりの樹) — adaptation of an Osamu Tezuka manga, and the interviewers asked him about All About Lily Chou Chou, for its recent 10th anniversary.

I don’t remember seeing him in the anniversary pictures [1], but I’m so glad they asked him about it because Yu-chan got a mention by name as well as a very long clip. Natsukashii na~~~

Anyway, I didn’t get much about the interview (of course!), except that he likes tako nigiri sushi (octopus). LOL — Also, Hiroki Narimiya stars in the new show, and he’s another one of my weaknesses~ I find Narimiya attractive when I see him acting on screen (crazy and all), though, not on photos.
