The newest issue of So-En Magazine (yes, the famous one with Yu as a boy) has recently hit the stands with Yu on the cover once again. As you can see, the cover is sporting the look for Yu’s newest Photo Exhibit and upcoming Photobook Uso. (Lie.). So she’s pushing hard to promote this.
Maybe it is because I didn’t know my sources well, but if I recall correctly when Portugirl came out, there wasn’t much promotion for it, at least not that I recall people blogging about it.
Not because she’s gonna be there, don’t get your hopes up, people.
From July 1 – 16, 2010 in NYC
The following Yu Aoi related films will be there: Otouto (About her Brother/Younger Brother) Hyakuman-en to Nigamushi Onna (One Million Yen Girl)
joining the line-up…
Ultra Miracle Love Story (Bare Essence of Life) with Kenichi Matsuyama
Dear Doctor with Eita
Memories of Matsuko by Tetsuya Nakashima Kokuhaku (Confessions) by Tetsuya Nakashima (also at the NY Asian Film Fest)
On Kokuhaku news, there was a little get together for the release of Nakashima’s film, which opens on June 5th, with the actors and actresses from his previous films. Yes, including Miki Nakatani (Memories of Matsuko), Kyoko Fukada and Anna Tsuchiya (Kamikaze Girls).
I won’t really link to the article because it mainly mentions her private life, and I know the video does mention it a bit, but her people — because that was “her people”, right? ushered reporters away in the end.
Can I just say the exhibit looks pretty awesome? A room with big pictures of Yu Aoi… in 3D and those cute 3D glasses is a win for me.
I bothered to get some of the captions…
The Yu Aoi Exhibit to Open
Your impressions on the opening of the exhibit
The impressions on what you see (?)
Conclusions of the theme of “Lies.”
Ever lied? (?)
and a last caption pertaining her private life.
Anyway… I think it’s funny hearing all the giggles in the background, it makes it look like all the female reporters are totally smitten by her. Though, to be fair… I think Japan is smitten with any of their celebrities.
I already pre-ordered the book. Alongside with a surprise for all of you Yu-Aoi-tagged element readers, but I’m gonna make you beg and grovel for the surprise… of course, I won’t be able to tell you anything until I get my order… but you can try groveling for details until then~
As I blogged 2 weeks ago, Yu-chan will be releasing a new Photobook, this time with pop-up elements, which ties into the 3D exhibit she’s doing in Shibuya, opening today in Tokyo (it’s 27th already there), and she will be at a meeting event on the 29th – if you’ve got a seat, would you report here?
All details about the book are on the link posted above.
