I’ve got some pretty nice recommendations to share.
In the first part of this re-imagination of The L Word in a Jdrama universe, we saw my dreamcast.
I’m still a little unsure on one of my main details, though, and that’s whether I want Meisa Kuroki as Carmen — the hot Latina who sizzled people’s screens and made Shane go Loco (I’m sorry for the cheesy bad writing, but The L Word deserves this cheese)… or whether she should play Molly — the no-longer-straight law student who wouldn’t fall for Shane’s game, so I’m hoping to be able to make a reasonable mish-mash of the both of them.
I guess it must be the Blogathon week, I just couldn’t shake that feeling that I had to talk about The L Word one way or the other… again. What better way to talk about than combining it with MY FAVORITE topic as of lately~ JDRAMA!
A while back , I found a post where a fan talked what Japanese stars they would pick if they ever wanted to remake The L Word in Japan. Of course, I went a step further. I thought about the HOW TOs in the adaptation of a Japanese The L Word… because, well- for starters, Japan in not the USA. Also, I can’t show Showtime content on Japanese television. Not if I want to use my dreamcast~~~
I made this Jdrama character chart because I take this sh!t seriously. LOL
Well, according to visitor Bill in this comment, his team is working on it.
Of course, me being one of the most vocal fans of Mikako Ichikawa — if not the most… seriously, you probably google her name and find my posts or images from the website — have been wanting to watch this since I got it. One afternoon, I tried watching it, but I felt the film was very dialog-driven, so I decided to stop the film and wait for someone to be kind enough… so thank you, Bill, for accepting my subs request.
I have seen a bunch of people, on my search for subtitles, that have been talking about the lack of subtitles for this film. Let me tell you, Mikako Ichikawa… so underrated.
Sure, she IS kinda creepy as lil’ sis Kumi in Memories of Matsuko, but in the end she wins us over with that final Okaeri — or is that just me? — as Matsuko goes up the stairs. *sighs* However, did you get to see Ichikawa as Tamaki Hiroshi’s wife in those few episodes of Atsu-hime starring more than rocking Aoi Miyazaki and lovable Eita?
Can I just say she’s got the most beautiful profile when she pulls her hair up? Such striking features, and so SO interesting. So much more than many other generic-looking and average-talented actresses that are much more popular.
So I wonder, why wasn’t this project much more popular?
for one thing or the other~~~
We are halfway through the list of 20 Actors Between 20-25 to Watch Until They’re 30, so it’s time to stop for a minute and talk a little about the few actors… or in this case, actresses that didn’t make the list for different reasons.
You should know that I’m writing as I think of those names and reasons, so I’ve got nothing planned. Forgive the possible lack of photos, lack of other info and ramblings.
Why am I singling out “actresses” – well, mainly because I already have a few of their names right on the tip of my tongue, and like I said before… my list of guys was very limited from the get go, but don’t worry. I will also talk about guys. LOL
