I know I have been a very bad Yu Aoi fan. First off, I had only a faint idea she was going to release a new photobook via HMV Japan, but since her website didn’t mention a thing, I didn’t think it was such a big deal. In any case, I ran into some of the photographs in my daily runs through Weibo — and voila!
I generally don’t talk about celebrities’ personal lives — oh, who am I kidding? I love gossip. I used to spend hours reading gossip blogs until I realized how much time I wasted. LOL
It started over the course of these few days when Yu Aoi searches spiked — once again — so I went on my customary search when that happens. And voila~
I don’t think I’ve ever stuck to a specific individual fandom long enough to actually see this kind of thing happen before, so since this is a first of a confirmed relationship from Yu-chan [blog]  [screencap],Â I guess I gotta sorta document it for my future Wiki update . LOL
Yu-chan is in a relationship with actor Suzuki Kosuke. Omedetou! Throw the confetti!
Sorry for the really bad graphic. But I didn’t wanna put one picture next tot he other coz then I would mistake it for a collaboration graphic. xD
After a couple of strongly-rumored-but-ultimately-never-bluntly-confirmed guys, Yu-chan and Suzuki-san have both announced it on their blogs. Nah-huh, can’t get more confirmation than that one. It beats the sneaking around, huh? Good for her.
More Yu Aoi narration work, this time for a 30sec. animated commercial for Tokyo Disney Resort… “where dreams come true,” that carries more of a storyline than some of the movies we watch in theaters. LOL
I hope Yu-chan doesn’t only focus on narration work in the future, coz I’d be pure disappoint. But as I’ve noted before, she’s developed her narration voice now. She’s expanding her voice range.
I don’t know many Yu Aoi fans who are excited for it, but I know Rurouni Kenshin fans are pumped. I know a few.
Yu Aoi has bangs… I don’t think I’ve seen Yu-chan with bangs since her early acting days. She looks mad weird, and the photoshop makes it look like she’s carrying that kid. No? Maybe it’s just me? xD
Last Jdrama season, I gave W no Higeki a watch. I don’t think I mentioned it on my review, but Emi Takei gave me a strong Yu Aoi vibe in that show. Since then, Takei has popped up in a LOT of projects I’ve been reading about. So much, I only remember saying “ohhhh, she’s in it too?” xD
I think she’s lacking a little bit of the Yu-chan charisma, but she’s okay.
I’ve been re-kindling myself with fandom, so… I guess you’ll see when I post about it when it gets here.
