Yu-chan, how am I supposed to know you have a new miniseries, if you don’t even update your blog? Like, I was blind. COMPLETELY BLIND about this two-episode series you did for TV Asahi, airing on February 2nd and 3rd. Titled Mottomo Toi Ginga (最も遠い銀河) — translated as The Most Distant Galaxy — the series has nothing to do with space. Instead, it seems to be a detective story, but the AsianWiki Plot/Synopsis sucks.

Still… it doesn’t mean that I don’t want to check it out.

I wouldn’t have heard about it, if it wasn’t for Weibo. I’m supposed to be subscribed to the Yu Aoi/Aoi Yuu and other variations of her name from Tokyohive, but whatever. It seems she has very few English-speaker fans who don’t even bother.

I’ve been kind of dying to see Helter Skelter. I haven’t even checked if there are subtitles available yet.

I don’t think the Tokyo Shimbun realized that they’ve developed a tool for foreigners to read their newspaper. xD

Writing nonsensical dramatic lines that may or not be grammatically correct? xD

あなたが本当に大好きだから。そして。。。あなたを守るために、家族もを守るために、永遠にエイミ-ちゃんはここにあります。

お父さんー
お誕生日おめでとう!
私は元気、あなたも?
毎日いつも日本に楽しいかったです。
毎日も、お父さんと家族を思った。いろいろことが家族みたい。風、桜、鶴も、そのことがうちに思うっている。

How… did I not know about this Ayumi Ito appearance??? Oh yeah, I don’t follow AllKPop and nobody in Kpop knows Ayumi Ito. FML. Ayumi Ito starred alongside Lee Jong Suk (As One ???) in the 2011 music video for Longer (롱거) by CHI CHI (oh, these Korean group names…). In it, Ayumi plays a woman whose boyfriend cheated on her with the woman (???) who is Jong Suk’s girlfriend in the story.
