oye-nana:

Drownin’ away from the start to the end
And you’re sailing away and nowhere else to strain
Come and take my all away
So far away from the start to the end
And everything seems so veiled and blue
Run away, sail away
You’re the one to have and love and shame
Will you be mine
Come and take
We will be far away

Never again, I’ll find someone else, kiss me goodbye to the end 
Worst I’m alone to despair end up in crazy for the love to insane.
Never again, I’ll love someone else
Please be mine till the end
This is our last night I’m fallin’ in love
you lips, your soul, your eyes, your arms, your hairs, your heart
our love, our mind

Love this song from Hirugao so much *-*

Played 430 times.

eigapedia:

A new 90-second trailer has been released for the first installment of the 2-part live-action adaptation of Hitoshi Iwaaki’s “Parasyte” manga (out Nov 29, 2014).

In the movie, Earth is invaded by alien parasites which have the ability to crawl through people’s nostrils or ear canal to access their brains, eventually taking full control of their body. Shota Sometani stars as a young man named Shinichi Izumi who forms a symbiotic relationship with one of the parasites, “Migi”, which takes up residence in his right hand. Together, they fight against other parasites who devour humans as food.

Rurouni Kenshin Densetsu no Saigo Hen (The Legend Ends) teaser and behind-the-scene footage were shown on ZIP! yesterday. ^^x

Everyone’s so cool and badass! :D

Hashimoto Ai for +act vol 9 2014

Have only recently found out that she was rumoured to have a cafe date with Ayano Gou back in August 2013 (she was only 17 at the time, which makes it 14 years difference). The rumour was published in infamous tabloid Friday and was denied by Hashimoto’s agency “He was only treating her to the dinner as a senpai”.
Speaking about Ayano’s dating rumours, he was also rumoured to have a movie double date with Narumi Riko (21) in January of this year (who was the other couple is unknown). Of course cannot omit his supposed two years dating Toda Erika (2010~2012) as tabloids insisted that they were even seen visiting her parents’ house in Hyogo. Tabloids explained their break-up with his overly enthusiastic acting in Helter Skelter (in bed scenes of course).
Whether any of those rumours true or not remains unknown but anyway they all are beautiful and cool girls, so you go, Gou! XD Get them all! XD

Saitou Takumi for Junon Legend 2014

Didn’t know much about him until I watched Hurigao ~Heijitsu Gogo 3-Ji no Koibito Tachi~ and because I like him in the series and absolutely love the series itself, here some details from his interview for the series ohp~

About Kitano-sensei’s “uncool” look: apparently he was told by the director that he shouldn’t look hot this time around, on the contrary he’s supposed to look clumsy and uncool. That’s why all his outfits have some uncool detail like polo-shirt pushed into pants and so on. Cinema magic is often used to make someone look more handsome than they are but in this case it was the opposite, they purposedly made him look worse than he could. For example he was aked to relax his posture, so that it wouldn’t be as perfect. However his glasses were chosen very carefully (all female staff helped by checking his looks in defferent kind of glasses xD) because it’s the key element of his look and should be attractive. Saitou said that Kitano-sensei lacked sex appeal and sensuality in general and he couldn’t even imagine why Ueto Aya's character liked him. He's a rare realistic character, not of a drama land. (Well, what can I say, the director and staff and Saitou himself failed dramatically because Kitano-sensei’s hotness and sex appeal are very much prominent XD and there’s absolutely no wonder that Aya’s character fell for him, the only question is why she hasn’t jump him yet…oh wait, SPOILER she did XD)
Kitano-sensei vs Katou: He also said that there’s an obvious confrontation between Kitano-sensei and Kitamura Kazuki's Katou as they represent two kinds of masculinity and have completely different ways of loving.
Ueto Aya’s transformation: He acted with Ueto Aya before but was completely surprised by how well she transformed into Sawa, she’s so different from her usual cheerful positive public self, that when he met with her resently out of filming location at some promotional event it felt as if he hadn’t seen her for ages. (Yep, I am surprised as well, that’s very different Ueto Aya for real!)
He said he respected very much Aya and Kichise Michiko's resolve and courage to portray characters doing adultery and to be naked on screen as both of them are married (And Aya has such a pure reputation, so many people must be against her taking this role)
Also, it seems that the script is not done yet so ators themselves don’t know what expects their characters and as invested in the story as the viewers.

Hirugao is my favourite dorama in this season (after Hero 2 of course :D ) Beautiful camerawork, sensual music, dangerously hot cast (all of them, what’s amazing), sharp dialogues - basically, go watch it! :D

(Well, what can I say, the director and staff and Saitou himself failed dramatically because Kitano-sensei’s hotness and sex appeal are very much prominent XD and there’s absolutely no wonder that Aya’s character fell for him, the only question is why she hasn’t jump him yet…oh wait, SPOILER she did XD)

Kitano-sensei vs Katou: He also said that there’s an obvious confrontation between Kitano-sensei and Kitamura Kazuki's Katou as they represent two kinds of masculinity and have completely different ways of loving.

Ueto Aya’s transformation: He acted with Ueto Aya before but was completely surprised by how well she transformed into Sawa, she’s so different from her usual cheerful positive public self, that when he met with her resently out of filming location at some promotional event it felt as if he hadn’t seen her for ages. (Yep, I am surprised as well, that’s very different Ueto Aya for real!)

He said he respected very much Aya and Kichise Michiko's resolve and courage to portray characters doing adultery and to be naked on screen as both of them are married (And Aya has such a pure reputation, so many people must be against her taking this role)

Also, it seems that the script is not done yet so ators themselves don’t know what expects their characters and as invested in the story as the viewers.

Hirugao is my favourite dorama in this season (after Hero 2 of course :D ) Beautiful camerawork, sensual music, dangerously hot cast (all of them, what’s amazing), sharp dialogues - basically, go watch it! :D

Really loved the visiual in the xxxHolic dorama! Maybe not as gorgeous as in original manga but close enough xD The cast was chosen so well visually! Anne was (unexpectedly for me) very charming as Yuko, Sometani Shouta’s Watanuki was a bit too wild at times but full of heart nevertheless and Higashide Masahiro looks like Doumeki personified (who knew you can actually look like Clamp characters in the real life? xD) Enjoyed it a lot, pity there’re only 8 episodes…

Watched Rurouni Kenshin Kyoto Taika Hen today! I didn’t have much expectations when I went to watch the first movie but it turned out so good that I had really huge expectations this time. Still, I really liked it! It’s a bit slow sometimes because well the first part of two movies story, they needed to introduce all characters and explain why Shishio (who looks like he came from a horror movie, really ><) does the crazy things he does, but actions scenes are put all in right places, so even casual viewer doesn’t get bored not to mention fans for whom all those character development moments are pure pleasure to watch :D The storyline is different from manga here and there and not all the moments I wanted to see was included but still, I think they summarised it nicely considering how little screen time they had. Really liked the meta moment when Kenshin and Co watched kabuki play based on the events of the first movie (Kabuki version of Kenshin included XD)

And now to the fangirling (without spoilers)!!

First of all, Aoshi! His coolness is on a different level *_* Iseya Yusuke played him perfectly, starting from the voice and posture to the amazing combat movements - everything just perfect. And that coat, believe me it looks much much better in movement than on photos. Well, I still thinks that he and actress who plays Misao have too much of an age difference but they make it work somehow. Misao by the way is cute and not annoying at all though her Kansai dialect sounds fake (Miura Ryosuke (Cho) Kansai dialect is better but still not good enough). That’s a pity, Kansai dialect is so nice… She’s very nice in combat too, much more believeable than Takei Emi (Kaoru), that’s probably thanks to her sport background.

Then my favourite Saito played by Eguchi Yosuke! I feel like he didn’t have as much screen time as in the first movie but whenever he’s on screen he looks as cool as ever *_* Aaand, there’s a small scene where he wears kimono instead of his usual uniform <3 (Don’t take me wrong, I love his uniform, but the gap when you suddenly see him in something else *__*)

Sano suddenly got lots of screen time and both bromance moment with Kenshin and romance moment with Megumi, unfortunately frenemy moment with Saito is nowhere to be found TT Aoi Yu has barely scene or two but she’s also very cool in them (much cooler I think than original manga’s Megumi)

Sojirou is very very good. He doesn’t smile all the time more like has a peaceful expression at all times. And his movements, he’s almost flying in the Kenshin/Sojirou combat. Seeing how he outruns horses I wondered why they needed the scene where he and Kenshin rode them. They could just run after each other XD I think Kamiki Ryonosuke is perfect actor for Sojirou as much as Satou Takeru is perfect for Kenshin.

Talking about Satou Takeru, let me just state the obvious and say how adorable, cute, hot and cool he is as Kenshin *_* One moment he is as cute as fluffy kitten and the next he is cold blooded killer than he turns to the calm man giving words of deep wisdom and so on, completely swiping you off with that “character gap” of his. All his movements while off combat are so graceful, and so fast and precise while he fights.

Fukuyama Masaharu (as expected by fans) showed his Hiko self just for a bare moment so it’s hard to say how good he will be as Hiko (I have doubts about that because I can’t imagine him playing all Hiko’s quirks well, Fukuyama has that peaceful majestic presense, I’d rather give this role to Abe Hiroshi, for example)

Juppongatana guys and Shishio look more normal than I expected (and less as a cheap cosplayers as they looked on some of promo photos) though scenes with Shishio burning are really from a horror movie ><

Action scenes are much upgraded since the first movie. There are a lot of them, all very different and very cool. You can see why it took 6 month to film it all. Also, unexpectedly there are many romance related scenes (well, as romantic as you can get in a story about a samurai) which I am really happy about. Still don’t see much chemistry between Takei Emi and Takeru but they are trying.

Can’t wait to watch the second part! Too bad they called it Saigo hen (The Last Chapter), don’t mind to watch some more movies about Kenshin :D
