Tanaka Reina and Suzuki Airi To Star In The Movie “Vampire Stories”

9 04 2011

Tanaka Reina and Suzuki Airi will star in the movie Vampire Stories.

The movie will feature two stories:

  • BROTHERS featuring Kazuki Katou, Yanagishita Tomo (D-BOYS), and Suzuki Airi
  • CHASERS featuring Baba Toru, Tetsuya Makita (D-BOYS), Tanaka Reina

Reina posted a short introduction to the movie, but I can’t make out what it says since Google Translate isn’t that good at translating more than 5 words, but here is the brief intro about Reina’s story she posted:

サークル仲間たちと河原でバーベキューを楽しむ主人公・シュウ(馬場 徹)は、
ひそかに想いを寄せる孤高の美女・ヒサコ(田中れいな)に告白するも不発に終る。

そこへ突如、非現実な死の惨劇が彼らを襲う。
気を失って山小屋で目を覚ましたシュウは、アサギ(牧田哲也)と名乗る男から衝撃の事実を突きつけられる

―河原でアイに襲われたシュウはヴァンパイアになり、
7日以内にアイを倒さなければ彼の奴隷になってしまう!
アサギと共にアイを追う中で、
襲われたはずのヒサコと再会するも、悲劇は連鎖となって続いてゆく。

I will try and find a translation of the story soon but from what I can see it seems that each story will be pretty interesting since the picture that Reina posted features a scene with all of the characters posing in a somewhat predictable “dark night with bats” setting that is used in vampire movies, and while the image is a bit too general I am looking forward to finding out a bit more about it since the characters all look great.

Since there are two separate stories it will give us a chance to check out how each members does on their own without being overshadowed by each other, and while I would have liked to see them both act together it seems like the addition of two stories, each featuring a separate H!P member, is a good way for people, especially H!P fans, to enjoy the entire movie.

The horror genre seems to be somewhat overused in H!P, although I am glad to see that they will both be featured in a movie instead of a TV special since fans can go to the movies and see it on the big screen, and also because a movie usually means that we can expect to see somewhat better effects and stories (usually although not always).

Hopefully we get to see more pictures and a site for this movie since the picture above and the mention of two separate stories, each with an H!P member, seems like a great way for fans to enjoy an interesting vampire movie.

The movie will be released this summer.

EDIT: Tokyograph has a translation of the plot of the movie:

Baba plays the protagonist Shu, enjoying a barbecue at a riverbed with his friends. He decides to try confessing his hidden feelings to Hisako (Tanaka), but it ends in failure. At that point, the two are suddenly attacked. Shu awakens in a cabin, where a man called Asagi (Makita) reveals a shocking truth: Shu has become a vampire, and he has seven days to defeat Ai, the one who attacked him, before he becomes enslaved.

EDIT: Airi has also posted on the C-ute blog about the movie, here is her part of the story (thanks to risusa TEN for the translation)

Series of murders have occured within the University circle at a riverbed by the valley…
the protagonist who unexpectedly escaped trouble Sei, (Yagashita Dai) and
Midori the sister who wasn’t born in the same family but was raised in it (Suzuki Airi)
find out about news about their friend’s deaths on the news on the TV.
Before long, forgetting about his grief, Sei solves the mystery of 5 years ago of the disappearance of his older brother Ai (Katou Kazuki) who suddenly appears infront of him.

Sei who loves Midori, fights against his fate from his vampire blood and for the sake of protecting the younger brother he loves, Ai who has accepted that he has become a vampire, waits for his siblings he just misses, would bring even more tragedy…

Actually Reina has had a part in three movies before this one, according to her Generasia article she was in a movie called “island dreamin” in 2003, she voiced a fairy in Yona Yona Penguin in 2009, and she recently acted in the Keitai Deka movie with Momusu this year ^_^

But from what I can see this is her first horror movie ^o^

“I have an announcement for everyone! Somehow… I’m appearing in a movie!

“Vampire Stories BROTHERS”
“Vampire Stories CHASERS“

are set to open this summer.

I’m appearing in the CHASERS side!

Story: (CHASERS Part)

“While barbecuing with friends by the riverside, main character Shuu (Baba Tooru) tries and fails to confess his love to the beautiful Hisako (Tanaka Reina) who is alone, deep in thought.

Then suddenly, they are faced with an unreal tragic death. After blacking out, Shuu awakes in a hut where a man called Asagi (Makita Tetsuya) confronts him with the reality of the situation.

After being attacked by Ai at the riverside, Shuu has become a vampire, and if he does not defeat Ai within 7 days, he will become his slave.

Together with Asagi, they chase after Ai. Along the way they meet up with Hisako again, who appears to have been attacked, and the chain of tragedies gets longer.”

Do you remember before when I said I had shooting from early in the morning? The time I said I only slept about 2 hours. That’s when I was shooting for this movie! I was so excited~ But it was really really fun! Although I’m a little nervous to see the finished product… That’s because it’s my first time having that many lines and such when acting.

Everyone, please look forward to it!”
