I haven’t actively looked for Yu Aoi fan-made videos in a long time, but here we go~ I hope this one doesn’t get deleted, coz we’ve been suffering from that a lot lately. Regular Yu Aoi film footage applies, with nice additions of Tamatama, and Otouto… though, Raiou would have been nice to have.

I’m on my way to watch Tokyo Monogatari as I type this, and I was surprised by this upload on my YouTube timeline. Opening on January 19 (note on the Yu Aoi event calendar below), Yoji Yamada has finally release a meatier look to his version of Ozu’s critically-lauded film. It’s nothing much (visually), and there’s so much crying… and Yu’s going to cry — it seems — a lot. I wanna watch it. I wonder if I watch the Ozu version, if I would need less subtitles to understand Tokyo Kazoku when it’s out. xD

You gotta think of these things nowadays~

The language seems fairly simple. xD Let’s try. Here you go:

Yu Aoi for Zipang Punk

goemon rock 3 zipang punk

I ran into this story~ though I can’t be exactly sure about it, you know… with my Japanese sucking and all. But it seems like Yu-chan’s going to be on another play- called Zipang Punk Goemon ROKKU III (so it seems like it might be… a musical? LOL) A rock musical on the life of legend hero Goemon or something.

You can check the story on Geinou News Lounge, which is the source with the most text. Plus photos. I will be adding the show’s dates on the Yu Aoi calendar placed down down below, which had seemed rather empty lately.

If anyone else has more information on it, don’t be shy and share it in the comments :)

Tickets for the Tokyo shows, which begin running on December 19th, run for 12,500 Yen, 10,500 Yen, and 7,500 Yen.

All the info is on their website.

I have been looking… for years and years for that perfect beanie [1] I saw Yu Aoi wearing on her Travel Sand book. I’ve looked at thousands and thousands of knitted hats of all types, but none has ever struck me the way that beanie had on those beautifully printed pages. The colors, the material… the amount of the openness of the weave, it was perfect.

Slouchy, with ears, pompoms, tails, tails with ears and pompoms… the ones with scarfs knitted out of the beanies… my collection might not be vast, but it’s certainly varied. I’m also terribly cheap, so I really can’t see myself paying $45USD for the Mango Knit Beanie with beads or worse… £216 for this Inverni Monnier Freres cashmere beanie — as awesome as they are.

This search for the perfect beanie is becoming an OCD of mine. I need help.

Urgent help.

I know you’re there~~~

come out, come out, wherever you are~~~
