Yu Aoi, Ike-chan, and More on WalkerPlus

June 30, 2009 — 7 Comments

First things first~~

I found another Yu Aoi article that talks about her role on Ikechan and voice-acting. It seems to quote a bit on this previous interview, but there also seems to be a bit of extra info, can’t be sure since I just skimmed-Google-translate it. We are in need of proper translations for this and the previous articles (trust me, you don’t want to rely on my Japanese LOL).

I also ran into this piece of info. I know it’s late, LOL’

Gakuya - Dressing Room - Poster

It’s a stage drama/play/theater piece… whatever your choice of noun is, called Gakuya – or as it translates Dressing Room – alongside Kyoko Koizumi, Nozomi Muraoka, and Eri Watanabe. It ran from May 10th to June 14th (again, sorry for the tardiness xD) – any Japanese fans seen it?? It would be awesome to get comments on that… or even a synopsis xD

Gakuya - Dressing Room - Cast

— July 1st EDIT —

Once again, take my translation with a grain of salt~~
Proper translation?

Yu Aoi and Kyon Kyon (Kyoko Koizumi) Battling for Starring Role!?

“Ike-chan and Me” opens on June 20, featuring the voice of Yu Aoi, who is co-starring alongside Kyoko Koizumi on a difficult starring role!?

The play “Gakuya ~Nagare Saru Mono wa Ya ga Tenatsukashiki~” (?) begins on May 10th.

The best characteristic of this play is all of the actresses’ strengths subdued to play supporting roles. For example, Yu Aoi from the side of the stage points out the mistakes in the lines of dialog being said like in a “Prompter” position. Kyoko Koizumi, despite her years and accomplishments, is still relegated to supporting roles. The image of this role is challenged, and it’s quite interesting.

Also, Yukio Ninagawa in combination with Kunio Shimizu’s masterpiece, directed by Ikuse Katsuhisa captured immediate attention and tickets sold out in advance.

Gakuya, a play within a play like Chekhov’s “The Seagull,” is similar. The “Actresses” were fascinated by the way they depicted the four women giving life to their characters.

Or instead, pay attention to Eri Watanabe and Nozomi Muraoka’s excellent performances.
