Cure for the common cold

I was offline for a few days because I caught a cold and didn't want to drip all over the keyboard (-_-;;) Grumpy made me that gorgeous starry banner though so I think I might have swooned to recovery. Ots !

Zettai Kareshi
Mizushima Hiro Special
Part 3


Zettai Kareshi
-Mizushima Hiro's Soushi Mutual Love!?-
-Part 3-

Theme Nakamura Shunsuke-san

This time I'll talk about Soushi's elder brother, the other person besides Aibu-san who I share many scenes with. The role of Masashi is played by Nakamura Shunsuke-san.

To me, he is a significant senpai so I was very nervous at first. I decided to be proactive in my 'breaking the wall tactic' and approached him to talk. No matter what we talked about, his response was always cheerful so we get along very well now. He's a good-humoured, candid person. When the production was just announced I told myself "I have to change myself a little," and now that we're getting along well, it's proof that I've done it (*laugh*). In the drama, Soushi and Masashi are at loggerheads with each other. Perhaps the reason why Soushi is working in the company is so that he will be recognized by his brother. But there's a part of him that refuses to give in no matter what, and that creates a big gap between them. That in turn brings about that rebellious attitude in him. From now on, the state of the sibling relationship will be on his mind but that self-centered part in him does not wish to be on good terms with his brother. When he hears "Let's do our best together," Soushi will always think that he's depending on others and won't go with that flow. Being a man like that is deplorable. But having said that, just going with the flow is not always interesting. Whether there'll be a confrontation, or if they'll part ways, I don't know yet but I want him to take some form of action. My apologies to Nakamura-san, but for the sake of Soushi's growth, I hope that some huge incidents like Masashi being defeated or overthrown will happen. Nakamura-san, I'm sorry (*laugh*).



僕にとっては大先輩で最初は緊張しましたが、"壁崩し作戦"で僕から積極的に話しかけたら、何を話しても明るく返してきてくれて、とても仲良くさせていただいてます。気さくないい方です。制作発表では、僕のことを「ちょっと変わってる」と言ってましたが、それも仲良くなった証拠だと思ってます(笑)。劇中では、創志と将志は犬猿の仲。おそらく創志は会社を経営するという意味では兄を認めているんです。ただ、どうしても譲れない部分があって、そこに大きなズレが生じてしまっているのでああいう反発的な態度をとってしまうんだと思います。今後、この兄弟の仲がどうなるかは気になるところですが、僕個人的にはあまり仲良くなって欲しくないんです。"一緒に頑張ろうぜ"みたいな流れだとどうしても創志に甘えが出てくると思うし、それじゃ男として情けないし、かといってこのままの流れもおもしろくない。それが対立なのか、決別なのかはわからないけれど、何かしらのアクションを起こしたいです。創志の成長を出すためには、中村さんには申し訳ないけど、将志を打ち負かすとか、将志が失脚するような大きな事件があることを期待したいところです。中村さん、すいません (笑)。

Red Carpet
Good evening !! Today too thanks for everything !! We went to Shizuoka City for filming today !! Speaking of Shizuoka City, it's the prefecture next to my hometown... somehow the atmosphere feels similar and I feel really at ease ('-^*)/ It's filming from early morning tomorrow too but... it looks like it's going to rain (*laugh*) We'll probably have to bulldoze our way through filming. Seems like it's going to be a difficult day !! I'll do my best !! We're filming in Kansai again in the evening tomorrow... moving back and forth from one spot to another, it feels like I'm doing a bit too much (*laugh*) It'll be 3 more days before I leave Puzzle filming behind !! It was really hard but... it was a fun season !! When filming for Puzzle ends, it'll be replaced by my next work !! Ah, the broadcast still has some way to go !! It seems that many people watched Episode 1, I want everyone to enjoy themselves with Episode 2 and the rest too (^O^)/

Some time back, I watched Red Carpet while I was at the hotel. I kept laughing the whole time !! !『Wagaya』san is the best ne !! A~, I want to watch Red Carpet live !! I'll do my best so they'll ask me on as a guest again (^-^)/

Today I took part in the once-a-year Thanksgiving Day held by Watanabe Entertainment !
Before I realized it, it's the 5th time I'm taking part in it, and before I realized it the people around the same table I've been sitting are all my kouhai... I'm a senpai huh... I'll do my best !
While in the gathering hall, I caught up with Gal Sone and took a photo together ☆ Actually Gal Sone and me are peers (same age). By the way, Nakagawa Shouko also known as Shokotan is also my peer. And Yanagi Koutaro from my D-BOYS is also one (*laugh*)
Well, I'm a little tired today... I think I'll go to bed early.
Good night (^_-)-☆

Zettai Kareshi
Interview with Mokomichi Hayami


Q. What did you think of Zettai Kareshi when you first heard of it ?

The first time I heard of it was "You're playing a robot-type of lover." Honestly, I was surprised (*laugh*) But when I read the original work, it was really interesting. I'm looking forward to portraying that image while the drama, up to now, is different from it. It's the first time I'm playing a robot and I feel excited about doing it.

Q. Do you have an image of how to play the role of a robot ?

When you hear robot, inevitably you're going to think of its jerky movements but the Tenjo Night I'm playing this time is an enhanced-performance humanoid robot. Regarding the movement, it's not really unnatural and it looks like I can move around more smoothly. Nevertheless, he's not perfectly human. He demonstrates superhuman ability and his thoughts and speech are a little off. How to show those robot-like parts, I think I'll have a feel for it during filming itself.

Q. What kind of character is Tenjo Night ?

He loves only one woman whole-heartedly, that type of man... no, robot I mean (*laugh*) As you would expect from a robot he doesn't have his own sense of self at first, everything is tied to 'loving Riko'.

Q. Before long, his sense of self is going to be awakened. How do you think you're going to play that part ?

Night is the type of robot who learns as he goes along, so as he comes into contact with Riko and Soushi, he will learn that he does not possess a human heart in himself. It's difficult to show much change in expression as he changes inside but I think it's good if for example, he is able to naturally show interest in things around him like a baby does when it starts to grow up.

Q. Night is very straight in showing his affection. Is there any part where he feels embarrassed ?

Not particularly. When he says "I love you" to Riko, or gladly does whatever she wants, these feelings are embodied in him already so being frank about it is important to him.

Q. What does Mokomichi-san think about Night being the perfect boyfriend ?

It's great how he puts in so much effort in everything, and I understand that. If I had someone I'm in love with, I don't think I can be as persistent as Night. But of course to be loved by someone, you have to give it a go with all your heart. Naturally, when you tell the other person that you love her, you want the other party to say the same thing back to you.

Q. What do you think a woman wants in an 'ideal boyfriend'?

I think everyone has their own ideal type and there's no universal ideal. Besides, I myself don't really know a lot of the things about the way women feel (*laugh*) But if I'm a woman, I'll be attracted to a man who puts in his utmost effort in everything he does.

Q. If you say that, then Night is Mokomichi-san's idea of an ideal lover, ne.

I would want anyone to look at me and think that way (*laugh*) At first, there were so many aspects lacking in him, but as he slowly grows up, I'll be happy if people started to think "It'll be great if such a robot can appear na." I'll work hard to be the Night than can tickle a woman's fancy !

Q. By the way, would Mokomichi-san want an "Absolute Girlfriend" robot ?

Well...., I'd want it ..... maybe (*laugh*)

Q. What sort of requirements will you program in this "Absolute Girlfriend" ?

For me, it's enough that she puts in the utmost effort in whatever she does. To soldier on, no matter what comes along, even if it feels hopeless, and working it out together, that's the ideal ne. When I have the time, I'll cook for myself but cooking by yourself and then eating by yourself is lonely... To cook with a girlfriend, that's what I yearn for ne. So, I think that's what I want, to cook together.

Q. Your impressions of Mizushima Hiro-san and Aibu Saki-san ?

This is the 3rd time I'm appearing together with Hiro-kun and the second time with Aibu-san. Hiro-kun is very serious but also a little spontaneous, he's interesting. Aibu-san is always full of energy and cheerful, a mood-maker during filming, livening things up. I get along with the both of them, so it looks like filming will be fun.

Q. Finally, please show your enthusiasm for Zettai Kareshi !

I think I will fully enjoy depicting a 'growing' robot who changes from his original configuration. The interweaving of a robot and human will create interesting parts and there'll also be the pain of love. This looks like it will turn out to be something new, so please watch it with anticipation !

Zettai Kareshi
Mizushima Hiro Special
Part 2


Zettai Kareshi
-Mizushima Hiro's Soushi Mutual Love!?-
-Part 2-

Theme Hayami Mokomichi-san, Aibu Saki-san

This time, I'll talk about my co-stars and the atmosphere at the filming location.

I have worked together with Hayami Mokomichi-san many times before. He's a very considerate and kind person, always been a good senpai to me. Our scenes together in Zattai Kareshi are few and so we met only a few times and didn't have time to have a leisurely talk. But after this there will be more of our scenes together and I look forward to that.

As for Aibu Saki-san, this is the first time we're appearing together. The first time we met, she kept humming the CM song to herself "I'm Aibu Saki ~♪" (*laugh*) Most of Soushi's scenes are with Riko so I thought of what I could do to quickly throw off my reserve. For me, there are numerous times when somehow there's like a a wall between me and someone who I'm meeting for the first time. I feel like I, myself, have to bring down that barrier so we can talk to each other. The song turned out to be a tactic to break down that wall, and it was a successful tactic, I managed to completely loosen up. Aibu-san is always cheerful and lively though so I think we would have been alright even without the strategy... (*laugh*) She's a mood-maker, often talking to the actors and staff at the filming location. It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that her cheerful manner changes the energy of the set (*laugh*)

Speaking of that, filming has only just started. At the moment, when on location, I'm always under the guidance of the director. We have 1-to-1 discussion and consultation. From now on for Zettai Kareshi, we'll spend more and more time doing so and I think that I will have fun while working to produce a great piece of work. Please give me your support, yoroshiku onegai shimasu !







Both of them are represented by Ken-on. Although Hiro is a few months older than Mokomichi, I think he calls Mokomichi his senpai as Mokomichi was in Ken-on earlier.
