Darling wa Gaikokujin
28th August 2009 19:36
The comic essay by Oguri Saori-sensei 'Darling wa Gaikokujin' is being made into a movie.
Mao-san is playing the main role!
Just as the name says, her darling is a foreigner and Mao-san is an aspiring manga illustrator.
She's playing Oguri-sensei herself♪
It's scheduled to open in Toho Cinemas nationwide in spring of 2010.
★Message from Mao-san★
"Everyone! My next darling is a foreigner! (*laugh*)
The laughs never stop at the relaxed filming location, we enjoy filming everyday♪
Jonathan who plays the role of Tony is great(^^)
I want to play Saori just like in the original work, cute and always working very hard!
Everyone, please look forward to it ne!"
In the relentless summer heat we've been having recently, she's diligently filming every day!!
I'll post behind the scenes stories from the filming location next time so look forward to it!!

2nd day of filming
23rd August 2009
Today we filmed an evening scene.
A scene using props.
It looks easy but when I gave it a try it went quite badly...
We had to do so many retakes, I felt so miserable making all the staff members wait...
Without thinking I said "Sorry..." and the director said,"No need to apologize!"
There are many, many things I have to learn.
Tonight I will get a good rest, switch modes and work hard tomorrow too!

Thanks again! Two entries! Are Jonathan's blog entries easier since he's not native Japanese?

For a blog, maybe it's a little more formal than usual so it's easier that way. But knowing that he speaks English and he must have his own way of wording his ideas, that makes it difficult!
