Fujigaya

The long overdue Japan post!

So, I went to Japan over spring break with a friend (you may have already seen her post).
I finally decided to post pictures~
This is ... the dokix2 experience.
It's too hard for me to go day by day, so my pictures are divided by category

Sorry, I wasn't able to post all my pictures.

Very image heavy!!

Jin Moustache

ごくせん3 Episode 1 - Still a bit salty at the fact that Fujigaya's not in it...

I just finished watching Gokusen3 ... it's ok.  I liked Gokusen2 better.
This cast seems so young and not as good looking.
I really liked the Gokusen2 group, not only Kame and Jin, but Mocomichi, Teppei,
and Kuwata Keisuke as well.

(no one can beat this dynamic duo)
Same type of beginning with trouble between the two leaders of the class.

Anyway...I the whole time I was watching it I couldn't help but think "Takaki looks soooo much like Jin".
(definitely not as good looking Jin, but still)  I think it was the hair and the clothes.

Also, does anyone have any information on Takaki's song? I was actually very impressed.
In the credits it says it's called 「俺たちの青春」 "Oretachi no Seishun" (Our Youth).
If you were wondering...the song starts at around (54:38).
I have to admit...I thought it was a KAT-TUN song when I first heard it.

I think he actually sounds pretty good (for a Hey!Say!).  Actually, in the drama sometimes
his voice reminds me of Jin's voice. (37:29)  Maybe it's just my distorted mind playing tricks on me...


Stats
Gokusen Ep1 : 18.3%
Gokusen2 Ep1 : 26.5%
Gokusen3 Ep1 : 26.4%
It did pretty well!  We'll see how it does in the next few weeks.

恋空


もしもあの日、きみに出会っていなければ
こんなに苦しくて こんなに悲しくて
こんなにせつなくて こんなに涙があふれえるような想いはしなかったと思う。
けれど、きみに出会っていなければ、
こんなにうれしくて こんなに優しくて
こんなに愛しくて こんなに温かくて
こんなに幸せな気持ちを知る事もできなかったよ。。。
(If on that day I didn't meet you,
It wouldn't be so difficult, It wouldn't be so sad,
It wouldn't be so painful, My thoughts wouldn't be like overflowing tears.
However, If I didn't meet you
I wouldn't be so happy, I wouldn't be so kind,
I wouldn't be so lovely, I wouldn't be so warm
I wouldn't be able to understand happiness...)

I really want to see 恋空 (Koizora)...but the movie just played in Japan and the DVD isn't coming out until 4.25.2008!!
It looks really interesting and i think it got pretty good reviews.

"'On the whole I was quite happy with “Koizora”. It is weepy and sometimes overly dramatic movie at times but still a good enough film for couples in love.  A good “chick flick” with a little bit of a bite and one that won’t have male viewers bored to tears. haha
quote from review here

The story is originally a story from a keitai site Mahou no iRando... so it's not one of those typical sad drama-types (aka boy meets girl, girl has some sort of terminal disease, girl dies, boy is sad).

Starring... (left to right)

Aragaki Yui, Miura Haruma, Koide Keisuke, Kanira, Usuda Asami, Nakamura Aoi

Haru, Fukada Aki, Yamamoto Ryouji, Asou Yumi, Takahashi George, Asano Yuuko

Yes, that's Miura Haruma from 14 no Haha (which I highly recommend) and the upcoming Gokusen 3.

2008.02.04  "Kamen Rider..."

Today is a shuzai* day!
I was with the kouhai for a long time, and it gave me a fresh feeling. (laughs)
The picture is of Kamen Rider's Kiba, Seto-chan♪*
He is amazingly good at doing Donald Duck impressions, so if you see him in town certainly ask him to do it for you. (laughs)



*1) when he talks about seto he uses the very polite japanese form
2) shuzai covering an event (I wasn't sure how to translate it)
今日は取材デーです!
久々に後輩達と一緒で、フレッシュな気分になりました(笑)
写真は今年の仮面ライダーキバ役の瀬戸ちゃんでございます♪彼はドナルドダックのモノマネがものすごくうまいんで、もし街で見かけたら是非やってもらってください(笑)

2008.02.06    "Shuzai♪"



Today is also a shuzai day☆
The first thing (that happened) was a conversation with Koide Keisuke; we will be appearing together with in the new upcoming drama, "Rookies" starting in April☆, he second thing (that happened) was I got slightly early Valentine's Day chocolate, the third thing (that happened) was I received pants from the stylist-san ~(^O^)/  With these things happening I have free time now♪. (yeah...not too sure about that sentence) I ate with friends, and now everyone is playing a Dragon Ball game☆(laughs).  And*, after this I'm going to a Negotiator recording (^_-)-☆

今日も取材デーです☆1誌目は4月から始まる新しいドラマ「ルーキーズ」で共演する小出恵介くんと対談してきました☆
2誌目ではちょいと早いバレンタインチョコを、3誌目ではスタイリストさんにジーパンをもらっちゃいました~(^O^)/
そんなこんなでただいま空き時間です♪友達と合流してご飯食べて、今はみんなでドラゴンボールのゲームをしてます☆(笑)
ほんで、これから「交渉人」の収録に行ってきま~す(^_-)-☆

*today he put his writing under his picture
when he says "and" he says honde which i think is okasa-ben

2008.02.07      "Osaka☆"

Today, from this morning, I went to Osaka!  Although I'm on the bullet train (going home) the recent bullet train's bathroom rivals that of hotel's! (laughs) It was so clean I thought I would take a picture! (laughs) Today's contents will be updated again tomorrow(^_-)-☆

今日は朝から大阪へ行ってました!今帰りの新幹線なんだけど、最近の新幹線はお手洗いがホテル並にキレイなのね!(笑)
あまりにキレイだったから思わず写真撮っちゃったわよ!(笑)
今日の内容はまた明日更新しま~す(^_-)-☆

*When he talks about the bathroom he's talking about the look of it

My column was in today's evening newspaper! 
From now on for half a year I'll write once a month, so everyone with a newspaper, please make sure to read it☆
Aa, by the way I wrote it by myself, so please look at my hard work.* (laughs)
The picture is from the other day; when the company got together for a (meal) meeting, Nakagawa said that tourist Nakagawa-san was sitting close by. (laughs)


*He doesn't actually say "hard work", he uses the term yarebadekiru which has a can-do feeling, kind of of like you can do it or it's do-able.
And I'm really not sure about the Nakagawa part...gomenne  m(_ _)m

まいど~(^O^)/
今日の読売新聞の夕刊にオレのコラムがあります!これから半年間月に一度書いていきますんで、新聞とってる人は是非読んでください☆
