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.

Because I only have this one series [1][2].

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 [1], 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

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.

There was a surge on Yu Aoi searches today, so I was browsing what I was missing~

First~ there’s a new batch of CMs for JINS glasses that were released in early May and on May 31st. This Making Of clip is from the last batch of commercials.

–EDIT–

The JINS YouTube channel has released most of the videos.

It’s around that time of the year again — a few days, give or take — it’s been 4 years since I’ve been in Yu Aoi’s fandom! Admittedly, less diligently than before… but surprisingly, still going at it.

You know FOUR is my bad luck number. Bad things happen with that number, so I’m extra crossing my fingers this year. In the meantime… here’s Yu-chan! Being Yu-chan! With some pastries~~~
