Inoue Mao
Graduates from Meiji University



Inoue Mao graduates from Meiji University, ceremony takes place at Budokan, a place filled with memories



Actress Inoue Mao (22), attended the Meiji University graduation ceremony at the Nippon Budoukan on the 26th of March. She spent 4 years in the Department of Literature. "I yearned for a normal campus life and I had one, making friends for life. The 4 years passed by in the blink of an eye," she said smiling in her green hakama. The Nippon Budoukan is a place filled with memories, where the final graduation scene of the popular drama Hana Yori Dango Returns was filmed. "The university entrance ceremony, Hanadan Returns graduation ceremony, the movie (preview event), and now my graduation, there seems to be a link between turning points of my life and the Budoukan. Many memories return."

Inoue Mao graduates from Meiji University... Meiji's "F4" was "a little different."



Actress Inoue Mao (22) graduated from Meiji University's Department of Literature on the 26th of March. She attended the graduation ceremony held at the Nippon Budoukan.

The graduation scene of 2007's Hana Yori Dango 2 was filmed in the same location. For the second ceremony, she wore a green hakama. "I made friends for life. The 4 years were more fun than I had imagined," she said, looking back over the years. For her graduation trip, she went to Hawaii for 5 days with her 4 girlfriends. For her part, she always plays the role of counsellor to them in love matters but when it comes to anticipated gokouns, "No one invited me." When she experienced a group date, "The guys side said 'We're Meiji's F4' but they're a little different," she said laughing.

She had juggled school and work previously, but now she will give her undivided attention to work. "I respect my friends who are going out looking for jobs in this time of a big recession. When my friends watch television, I want them to feel like giving their best." She has the lead role in the movie 'Boku no Hatsukoi wo Kimi ni Sasagu' which opens this autumn.

井上真央が明大卒業、思い出の武道館で式

女優で明大文学部4年の井上真央(22)が26日、都内の日本武道館で明大卒業式に出席した。「あこがれていた普通のキャンパスライフが送れて、生涯の友だちができました。あっという間の4年間でした」と、グリーンのはかま姿で笑みをこぼした。日本武道館は、人気ドラマ「花より男子リターンズ」の最終回で卒業式シーンに使った思い出の場所でもある。「大学の入学式、花男リターンズ卒業式、映画(完成披露試写会)、今回の卒業式と節目で縁があるみたいです。いろんなことを思い出しました」。

井上真央が明大卒業…明治の“F4”は「ちょっと離れてた」

女優の井上真央(22)が26日、明治大学文学部を卒業し、東京・北の丸公園の日本武道館で行われた同大学の卒業式に出席した。

 07年に「花より男子2」の卒業式場面を同所で撮影。2度目のセレモニーに緑の袴姿で「一生涯の友達を得ることができた。4年間想像以上に楽しかった」と振り返った。卒業旅行も女友達5人と5日間ハワイに滞在。一方、恋愛は常に相談役だったそうで期待の合コンは「みんな誘ってくれなかった」。グループデートを経験も「(男性陣は)俺たち明治の"F4"(「花より男子」での男子グループ)って言ってたけど、ちょっと離れてた」と笑わせた。

 学業との両立を果たし、今後は仕事に専念。「大不況のなか就活した友達を尊敬する。友達がテレビを見てがんばってるって思ってもらえるように」と飛躍を誓っていた。映画「僕の初恋をキミに捧ぐ」(今秋公開予定)で主演を務める。
