After many many MANY years, Yu Aoi’s Itoh Company web page will be redesigned. At the moment, you are greeted by the message excusing themselves for the blank page, and given a pop-up link to her Itoh profile.

I wonder what they will come up with.

And no, Itoh Company didn’t contact me. xD

I have to admit… I’m a little disappointed. Be it choice of script or choice of character — I’m choosing this as punishment from Itoh Company for Yu-chan choosing to cut her hair. LOL I’m uncertain about her hair, it looks real, but at the same time I’m unable to make a clear timeline. Maybe she shot this BEFORE she cut her hair. I would have liked her present-day character to be portrayed with her short hair, and a lot more different.

Yu-chan, how am I supposed to know you have a new miniseries, if you don’t even update your blog? Like, I was blind. COMPLETELY BLIND about this two-episode series you did for TV Asahi, airing on February 2nd and 3rd. Titled Mottomo Toi Ginga (最も遠い銀河) — translated as The Most Distant Galaxy — the series has nothing to do with space. Instead, it seems to be a detective story, but the AsianWiki Plot/Synopsis sucks.

Still… it doesn’t mean that I don’t want to check it out.

I wouldn’t have heard about it, if it wasn’t for Weibo. I’m supposed to be subscribed to the Yu Aoi/Aoi Yuu and other variations of her name from Tokyohive, but whatever. It seems she has very few English-speaker fans who don’t even bother.

At the moment, this screencaps will do.

What started like a simple post, ended up taking a lot of hours of research and boy band video-watching. I may or not regret it.

Voila! The Ultimate Guide to Boy Bands of the 90s ~

There were boy bands I hadn’t even heard of… and some that I had to dust off my VHS tapes to get their names. Ha!

I ran into two really cool posts on Mika Ninagawa- one sort of talking about her work — mentioning her style and her work with the likes of Shiina Ringo, Bjork and- of course, Anna Tsuchiya — and the other a quite rare (and insightful) interview in English.

I’ve been kind of dying to see Helter Skelter. I haven’t even checked if there are subtitles available yet.

I guess people can’t stand true stars because they are so different, they’d rather watch some stupid proxies they can sympathize with.

I guess we do live in the era of the dying movie star. :\
