Amy the celebrity-endorsements-don’t-work-on-me is back XD and must reveal that now I drink much more caffeine than before (I blame Turkish coffee) and I’ve been drinking Soju. Damn it, Korea. And I begin talking about drinks because Yu-chan has a brand new sponsor in Asahi for their Asahi Mogitate (ã‚¢ã‚µãƒ’ã‚‚ãŽãŸã¦) campaign. “Mogitate” means “fresh-picked,” and it’s the name of their new ‘ready-to-drink’ (RTD) product— Chuuhai aimed at women. The err… Drinks Association in Australia (?) has a really explanatory post on Asahi’s road to design the perfect RTD that women (and men) want to buy.
I didn’t know the beer market in Japan had been shrinking. This is first news to me. Recommended watch: The Birth of Sake. Also, you gotta read about the Japanese whisky market and prices. Japan and their collectors’ stuff.
Chuuhai, on the other hand~~~
I do wonder if Yu-chan still sponsors Kirin xD
Here’s the most recent one titled Mogitate and Summer Veggies Curry (ã‚‚ãŽãŸã¦ã¨å¤é‡Žèœã‚«ãƒ¬ãƒ¼)
I just didn’t want to spam you, even though I have been spamming y’all with Mamamoo continuous posts x’D
First, Tokyo Ghouls came out, I don’t think it made such a big splash as Rurouni Kenshin did [at the Box Office] and Yu-chan’s role is tiny [the Variety review spoils the role and movie, but does mention Yu hasn’t aged since 2006 xD].
Over the Fence and Japanese Girls Never Die came out on DVD/BR sometime in Mar and June. Subtitles may be scarce xD I’m not aware of HK editions with subtitles. I may be trying to catch Over the Fence without subs for all time’s sake. LOL
Yu-chan has also been on TV lately. She was in the recent special for We’re Millennials Got a Problem SP (ã‚†ã¨ã‚Šã§ã™ãŒãªã«ã‹ ç´”ç±³åŸé†¸ç´”æƒ…ç·¨), which will be coming out on DVD/BR in November (late) alongside What a Wonderful Family 2. I’m still debating whether I should watch the show~ She’s also currently on TBS’ drama Hello, Detective Hedgehog (ãƒãƒãƒ¼å¼µã‚Šãƒã‚ºãƒŸ) with Eita :)
