You know, I read that post about Japan — despite its technologically-advanced image — not being a tech nation at all , so when finding this about a radio drama took me back in time back to when my mom told me they used to watch radio telenovelas (back then known as radionovelas, of course). Having Yu working on one is so bizarre… not to mention troublesome as a fan xD
Soooooo, story of my life. The Shunji Iwai Vampire interview was supposed to begin at 9pm, which means I decided to stay up all the way into 7am my timezone to catch the interview… the problem was I fell asleep well into the 30min. mark with Iwai-san arriving Â just a few minutes later.

Cheap GIF, I know. But it can persuade you to watch the Tudou clip, right? Btw, if any of you have trouble watching things from Tudou, it seems that using FLVCD.com and actually downloading the video works faster than their player for some reason. Continue Reading…
Yup. I finally bought Kyou, Konogoro (ä»Šæ—¥ã€ã“ã®ã”ã‚ã€‚) — roughly translated to Nowadays, Lately. — which I had put off getting for years AND YEARS because… there’s a lot of text. But, damn. I was seriously missing out. There’s not many photos for the book, but there’s TONS of goodies for Yu-chan fans. A LOT of information (movie facts about Yu’s shooting projects, dates, movie suggestions, books she’s given or received, a sorta detailed work around to some of the magazine work she’s done, etc.) — In short, loads of great information for her Wikipedia page. xD
Having to tell you that my Chinese Mandarin classes are paying off for the Japanese reading. Ha! I’m just gonna have to go through all the text bit by bit. Coz seriously, there’s a lot.
