Nakazawa Yuko Will Be In A Movie Titled “TWILIGHT FILE 8: Fighting Okan”

2 09 2011

Nakazawa Yuko will play the role of a mom turned boxer in a film titled TWILIGHT File 8: Fighting Okan.

Form what I can tell the movie will be about a 40 year old mom who lives a peaceful life with her husband and son, and after a divorce she decides to start attending a boxing gym, and while I’m not sure about the rest of the synopsis I can say for sure that this is a very interesting movie since it seems to fit Yuko well.

The images above are the only previews we have so far, but they speak for themselves and gives us a good sign about what the movie will be like, and for Yuko fans and for anyone interested it seems like it will be an impressive release.

I will update with more details once they are released but for now I’m glad to see that Yuko will be the star of a movie.

The movie will open 11/5.

Dream Morning Musume Concert Tour 2011 Spring PB Cover Released

23 07 2011

The cover for the PB release of Dream Morning Musume’s Concert Tour 2011 Haru no Mai ~Sotsugyousei DE Saikessei~ has been released.

I was a bit surprised to see that the cover for the PB release is a bit similar to the one Momusu will have since apart from the info and the color of the bottom bar they have the exact same layout (most likely because BLT seems to overuse the layout with all of it’s releases): black bar at the top, the color of the letters are the same as the Momusu PB, a bar on the bottom with info about the content, as well as a vertical picture of the concert, but despite that it’s still a great cover.

We get to see all 10 members of Dream Morning Musume posing and singing while in concert, and while the picture could have been a bit better I was impressed with the energy coming from some of the members, mainly Rika, Koha, Yuko, as well as Yaguchi, and while we haven’t seen any previews it seems like this PB will be amazing since the bottom right picture does a good job of showing of the intensity of the event.

We should get previews sometime soon, or if not then there will most likely be a few around the beginning of August, but hopefully fans reserve their copy of the PB since it’s the perfect way to enjoy the concert fully.

The release date is set for 8/3.

Ishikawa Rika and Nakazawa Yuko To Appear In A Movie Produced By Tsunku

21 06 2011

Ishikawa Rika will be starring in a movie titled Atsushi Hime Number 1 (Eng: Number 1 Kind Princess).

The movie will be produced by Tsunku, this being his first time producing a movie. Nakazawa Yuko will also appear in the movie as supporting actress.

Tsunku has done practically everything: he voiced an anime character, he’s part of a popular band Sharan Q, he’s the producer for most of H!P and writes most of their singles among many, many other things, but it seems like he can finally add another item to the list: a movie producer, and while it’s not clear whether it will be a DVD release or a theater release (most likely theater) I am looking forward to it.

The outfit that Rika was wearing at the announcement event was very interesting since she appeared wearing a cute traditional red kimono along with an interesting hairstyle which made me look forward to seeing the movie even more since it looks like her character will be pretty interesting to see.

Like his music we don’t really have any idea about what to expect, but we will probably see a very interesting movie since it has a more traditional Japanese theme (as we can tell from Rika’s outfit) and along with Rika’s appearance as the main actress and Yuko as supporting actress it should be a great movie to check out once it’s released.

The movie is expect to be released next Spring.

Yaguchi Mari, Yasuda Kei And Nakazawa Yuko To Hold Casual Dinner Shows

11 04 2011

Dream Morning Musume members Yaguchi Mari, Yasuda Kei and Nakazawa Yuko will be holding casual dinner shows on both Osaka and Tokyo.

Mari and Yasuda will have their shows held together so fans who will attend will get a chance to hear them sing and seeing them while enjoying a nice meal, while Nakazawa’s event is held a few days later.

The scheduled events are of 4 casual dinner shows for Mari and Yasuda at La Donna (Tokyo) and Flamingo the Arusha (Osaka), which seems interesting since they will have 2 full nights with  consecutive events and dinners to attend in the same area to please fans. On the other hand, Yuko only has 2 casual diners to attend on one night which will take place in Flamingo the Arusha.

Since the events will take place in June, this gives time for all of the fans to prepare their trips if they want to meet their idols, and to note that the price is a little high (15 000 Yen), probably for their presence and the dinner that will be served.

Overall, I’m really happy to see that the members are getting more and more chances to be with their fans on casual shows where they are probably in a more calm atmosphere, and hopefully other members will get this chance too.

The event for Yaguchi Mari and Yasuda Kei are scheduled for 6/4 (Tokyo) and 6/12 (Osaka).

The event for Nakazawa Yuko is scheduled for 6/18 (Osaka).
