Li Yuchun, you’re doing a world tour? I suspect you’re not including me… but, oh well. Your promo poster is flawless. I mean, nothing out of the design-ordinary, but you look like pure gloss.

You know when BiBi had her make-over [1], I was flabbergasted? I don’t think it ever happened between you and me. I’ve been more interested in your film career than music, to be honest. You weren’t bad in Bodyguards and Assassins, and you definitely had your scenes in The Flying Swords of Dragon Gate. xD

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.

Or at least, that’s what I understood scanning through the articles in Japanese (with Google Translate, LOL).

Tokyo Kazoku (Tokyo Family) was supposed to start shooting in early April last year, but due to the earthquake, it was postpone — postpone long enough, until now. Apparently (if I read right), Tokyo Kazoku began shooting on May 31st. There was a press conference that day, and the cast was there~ including Satoshi Tsumabuki and Yu-chan.

As you may (or not) know, Tokyo Kazoku will be a re-telling of the 1953 classic Tokyo Story (東京物語) by Yazujiro Ozu. Apparently, Yu-chan will be taking on the role played by Setsuko Hara. But… I really can’t tell you more, because I’m ashamed to admit I haven’t watched Tokyo Story, even though every cinephile has.

But if Setsuko Hara-san’s character was the same as Satoshi Tsumabuki’s girlfriend [1], then you probably already knew that. If it wasn’t… then it’s all news to us. xD

In the meantime… Yu looks grown-up. I feel like I haven’t seen her in so long, even though she was in that episode of Shokuzai in January. Of course, Tokyo Kazuko will be released on January 2013.

Here’s a video of the event.

Yu Aoi for Madame de Sade

Look what I found!

Yu-chan is going to be starring on the play Madame de Sade, which… I’ll just copy/paste the info I found because I’m lazy. LOL~ I know, I know~~~ But I compensate by adding all the dates on the Yu Aoi Google Event Calendar, alright?

I don’t want to say it’s a sad SAD day, because I’m pretty sure there are so many worse things going on in the world right now, but I was pretty shocked to find this one out after my ISP was wonky and wouldn’t let me on Facebook and Twitter. I seriously could only use Google-based websites and the Chinese ones.

Anyway, Megaupload is dead. Or at least, dead for the moment. I wonder what people that had paid for premium accounts and had loads of files stored are going to do. It’s like… their lives are gone. PUFF! That’s it. I hope they have physical copies or other backup uploads.

Could you imagine the repercussions for all those file upload systems? So uploading your iTunes backups to dropbox would be ilegal, cloud systems wouldn’t really be possible, right?

And what about all those Blogger sites, WordPress and other websites that dedicate to it. Does it mean that all those sites are getting axed next?

Anyway, it always happens this way. A site gets shut down, it gets bought, or something happens to it. There’s people outcry, and we move on to the next thing.
