Hey guys! Not much news today, the Johnny’s world is a little bit slow today… but there are a few rumors floating around the web… and I’m looking for time to get through them, but there’s just no time yet, so for now, just some TV drama, a movie and Maruyama.
First off, we’ll start with drama announcements.
Kis-My-Ft2 Fujigaya Taisuke will be starring in a 3 episode drama, “Basuke mo Koi mo Shiteitai“. He will be joined by actress Yamamoto Mizuki.
Tomomitsu Tsuchiya (Taisuke Fujigaya) is the captain of his high school basketball team. He is also a senior at his school. Even though he is not that good in basketball, he is selected as bench player for the prefecture qualifying round. The underclassmen on his team, who are all better than him, are not happy about his selection.
Tomomitsu Tsuchiya then meets Sae Hatori (Mizuki Yamamoto). She is also a senior at the same high school. She keeps watching Tomomitsu Tsuchiya shoot three pointers. They become closer and develop a romantic relationship. Suddenly, Sae transfers to another school without saying a word.
“Basuke mo Koi mo, Shiteitai” will be broadcast from the 19th till the 21st September, at 23:30 (Japan time of course) on FujiTV. It’s also going to be a 30 minutes episode every time.
Arashi‘s Sakurai Sho will be starring this year’s New Year Special drama for FujiTV. He will be playing Takajo Kazuya, a wheelchair basketball player who’s aiming to be the best player.
The drama, “Kimi ni Sasageru Emblem“, is based on a real-life story of a former J-leaguer, who suffered severe injuries on his spinal cord. The human love story drama will be showcasing his setbacks, frustrations, his recovery and his relation with his wife, who accompanies him throughout his journey.
Here’s Sakurai Sho’s comment: “I’m very nervous about acting again since it’s been a little while for me. When I read the content of the drama, I felt really honoured about being chosen for the drama. I was able to interview handicapped sports player for another TV show, and there was a lot of things I felt and a lot of things I wanted to say, so I hope that through this drama, we would be able to shine more light on the world of parasports. It would be an honour for me to be able to do that.”
Speaking about Sakurai Sho, here‘s his CMs for the Megurism Hot Eye Mask. If anyone wants to check it out.
Next, it’s a little notice about the movie ‘Oboreru Knife‘ which stars Suda Masaki and Komatsu Nana as the lead, and Johnny’s West‘s Shigeoka Daiki and Kamishiraishi Mone as supporting roles.
Natsume Mochizuki (Nana Komatsu) works as a teen model in Tokyo, but she learns that she has to move to her father’s hometown of Ukigumo. She is in a desperate situation because she can’t do the things she wants to do in Ukigumo. One day, she meets Koichiro Hasegawa (Masaki Suda). He is the successor of the Hasegawa family. His family is wealthy and is respected in the area. Natsume Mochizuki and Koichiro Hasegawa become attracted to each other, but something changes their fate.
I’m personally very excited for this movie because of Suda Masaki, but omg Johnny’s West’s Shigeoka Daiki is life in this trailer. He looks amazing and I just stop breathing during those few seconds he was in the trailer… He’s just slowing winning me over and its worrying me…
Anyone else excited after seeing this?? The movie will open on November 5th.
And we’ll finish with Kanjani8 Maruyama Ryuhei. On NTV’s ‘Sukkiri’ Maruyama told in a VTR that he would love to “infiltrate” Arashi.
“For me, it would be Arashi. I personally love Ninomiya-kun, so I want to know about Ninomiya-kun’s lifestyle.” says Maruyama. “Ninomiya-kun, Matsumoto-kun and I are the same age, but our characters are so different. So I want to learn from them, and bury the difference we have in terms of image.” To which Yasuda Shota, his band member, told him: “Please remember the reason why you were chosen for Kanjani8.” #classicmaru
That’s it for today folks, I have a test I have to study for. Not to mention all the kanji to have to remember… I love translating, but today was such a nice day… so I went for a walk and things got delayed.
By the way, if any of you guys have twitter, please find me at toradattebasa I sometimes, post some small things that would be too short inside an article, or anything that interest me in terms of Johnnys that I don’t know how to post here. And we can talk!
