Jewels from Weibo. xD
I have no idea where people find these things…
I feel a little like invading her privacy… maybe I shouldn’t post these, huh? What do you think?
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.
You know, Japan is YouTubizing itself. I didn’t know Asmik Ace had a YouTube channel.
ANYWAY, browsing their uploaded videos I found the trailer for Fukushima Hula Girls (がんばっぺ フラガール!), which has narration by Yu-chan… because, you know, she was a Hula Girl. xD
Is that Yu-chan’s voice in the trailer? Coz… she sounds, so different. If I didn’t know she was doing the narration, I wouldn’t know it’s her voice. This is a new voice… different from the one she uses in CMs, her screaming (Shiro, Raiou) voice, and different from her talking voice. Yu-chan is developing her narration voice.
If there’s a DVD with English subtitles, I will get it to support Hula Girls and Fukushima… coz, was this done to support them? Are we donating money with this? I just realized I have no idea. O_O
I really don’t know how I missed this trailer.
I mean, it’s got Yu-chan’s line in ENGLISH… broken English, but HER LINE IN ENGLISH. And it’s nearly a year-old video post, and I never knew. And NOBODY told me. T_T That’s the most depressing part.
I had talked with people who had seen Vampire already, and they’ve told me that Yu-chan’s part is small… but memorable (but maybe they’re a little bit biased). In any case, I’m not guiding myself by the reviews that came from Sundance because most of them… they were expecting some other movie about vampires.
I’m posting this today, because Vampire just got a Japanese release date — September 15th this year —
but i can’t find an upload for that version on YouTube, so here’s a link to Wildgrounds.
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.
