The CM is for Chocola BB. Not quite sure what it is though. Maybe some kind of indigestion medicine? :scratch:

And wouldn't it be total hotness if Mao and Shun were to act together, just them without any Jun present. Haha. Not that I dislike Jun - I like all of them. Mao makes them look good eh? ;)

Yamapiggy: Thank you for the comment. I dunno what i was thinking when I put Ariel, Mao and YEH all together. I like all three of them and then I threw in Toma and Maki...annnnnd there's someone else being introduced in the next chapter. ;)

As for Yamaopi? OF COURSE! I don't care if the characters dislike it or protest, I'mma beat them into being together in my fic. Haha. As soon as school's done, I'll be writing again. We'll see how it goes and thanks again for reading!

Do you think she'll be acting in an actual drama any time soon? (After Hanadan final T.T, that is.) T.T
LOL! thehibiscus yes, you should beat them up into being together XD

yeah as of now there's really no news whatsoever of mao doing another dorama ne... but i hope she does soooon... we're missing her ne! and hanadan final is still too far away! maybe she could be a guest in one of the arashi shows LOL it's been a while we've seen her onscreen.

SuperKyle nah... i'm still al for pi and mao in mars LOL she and shun can do a different dorama LOL

Ats
that piccu of mao with her face is priceless XD cho kawaii XD

jo the CM i think is a health drink ne! mao-chan looks so preeeeeeetty! hope the cm video comes out soon! ^^

Hi Minna san!

Not much Mao news lately eh? She looks really pretty the CM photos. I was just in Ebisu a couple days ago. No HYD action, but it was really cool standing in the same spot!

Here's a poster for Anmitsu Hime that was framed inside the Fuji TV building!

So cool! how i wish i could go to Ebisu one day! :cheers:
and oh my, you went to Fuji TV? *envy to the core*

Btw just to share one news I knew days ago
I was watching this Taiwan programme, and the host talked about HYD Final.
He knew from the film distributor that the film will be in cinemas in TW during August, and fans were asking why it couldnt be with the same pace as Japan's. The film distributor answered that was because they're trying to invite Matsumoto Jun over to TW if made possible. OH MY GOSH.
I wonder if Mao would be invited too :lol no $$ for overseas trip =X if not how good it'd be to go to TW when they are there, having translators from japanese to chinese.. This shows I've got no luck :cry:

haha yes, biniBningPunkista, I wanted to go Ebisu that much is because that's where Domyoji and Tsukushi's first date happened!
I just hope if I really ever get to see her, my camera would be with me at that point of time. IF NOT I'LL REALLY KILL MYSELF :doh:

Btw I'd like to know, where is the place in Japan, where F4 fighted in HYD? It is also the location where Rui always stares at Shizuka's mega poster? I'd want to visit that place too if I ever go to Japan :roll that place looked kind of a western location, like streets on Paris, coz it looks kind of royal to me Lol

After looking at the ads, its actually for a skin product (some form of moisterizer). The "red" is for dry skin, and the "blue" is for hm.. 'spotted' skin? Probably blotchy skin.

The product below that (in the capsules) is for a sort of 'energy booster' which acts to convert different things in your body to generate energy; in case anyone was wondering.

Hope this helps ^^;; Whoops.. class starting g2g!

biniBningPunkista: I actually haven't been on much. Not a lot of news on Mao, so I've been here quietly reading. Love your ToMao fic though, I've been reading on Winglin.
zi91: Ebisu was amazing! I went there once in the morning and once at night. I'll post pics if anyone wants to see. Too bad I couldn't catch them filming!

Tokyo was really nice...did a lot of touristy things. And of course fangirl things. :D :D

becky_49, I do hope I can go to Tokyo one day... But the first thing I've to do is to save up $$ :-( It's kinda ex to fly to Japan... I think how good it'll be if HYD Final would film Domyoji and Tsukushi at Ebisu once again... Not as the couple identity, but as a husband-&-wife identity. It'd be great to me then, hehehe :thumleft:

Yeah I think I do actually. Someone on Veoh posted it. It's another one of the TBS Happening Awards. I'll edit my post and post the link when Veoh is back up :thumleft:
The video is in like 5 parts so I'm not totally sure but in one of the previews, there is HYD so I'm betting on it.

Some impressions on Hanaikusa . . .

1) The story is easy enough to follow without subs if you've already seen Memoirs of a Geisha. In other words, you'll recognize the roles of the various female characters as well as Mineko's early life.

2) You can tell the show took Memoirs, the movie, as an influence. They use the same soundtrack, and various shots (like the long shot of a Gion district and some of the apprenticeship practice) are constructed similarly to the movie. Of course, these locations are actually authentic. This is an especially gorgeous tanpatsu, with falling sakura blossoms, master shots with disappearing horizon points, pastoral sequences to signal time jumps, without the excessive backlighting typical of J-drama. But it also feels lived in, and it's never obstrusive. The mostly interior scenes were done with a lot of two shots to show Mao watching the ladies.

3) I think some of Mao's kimonos when she is a maiko were Mineko's and were absolutely luxurious. I imagine that each kimono would have cost the price of car. Much attention is paid to Mao's skin just under her headdress.

The rest are not really spoilers, but I just want to make sure . . .
4) Unlike MOAG, Hanaikusa does a good job emphasizing that geishas are artists, not prostitutes. That said -- and this was shocking to me given the other Japanese period dramas/movies I've seen -- Hanikusa is also more erotic/visceral than MOAG. Let's just say that Mineko reinvents the pinkie gesture, which would made Doumyoji's hair straight. Touch and physical contact is pervasive here, because it is necessary in the discipline and teaching of these artists. It is as if she, like the other students, are molded by the sometimes martial, sometimes abusive, sometimes loving hands of their teachers. It brings the heirarchy of their work into a visceral relief that needs no subtitles. Heirarchy is more accurately depicted here. Although you have a clear bully and a clear mentor, the monster is practical and the patient teacher is not altruistic. It is a system, toward which the young Mineko is fearful but not hateful.

5) Naho Toda's yanqui-in-akimono performance is amazing here. Her character may be cruel, but immediately you can sense her character has true substance, true awareness of the art of performing geisha, and that her upbringing is partially product of her competitive environment. Hazuki Riona is also very good here, and her scenes with both Naho and Mao are mesmerizing. There's a pivotal scene between Riona and Naho, which could have played like a cheesy clip from Dynasty. But, here, since we're already conditionined to the intimate and hands-on world of their lives. it feels genuinely savage. Like two stars who have earned their high station and are now settling an old score.

6) The story is largely divided into two arc, and through the first arc, you wonder whether Mao may be slightly out of her depths here between all the veteran actors around her. But that is a setup. The transformation, when Mineko turns from terrified maiko apprentice into Mineko, the star maiko and then controversial geisha, is mesmerizing. In a normal story arc (like MOAG), her coming of age from such harsh circumstances would be met with our unconditional support. However, the overall story seems to flow along the lines of the "fight with monsters, become a monster" . . . and in that 2nd arc, Mao becomes a revelation here. Her body language slowly evolves, the seriousness of her star deepens and grows colder, the steadiness of her language grows heavier and more resolute. And above all, her emotions she is asked to play become startingly complex, for she becomes a woman who has truly become the experiences and lessons (good, bad, whatever) of her masters. The costume and hair dress changes, signfying Mineko's aging into (I think) her 30s, aren't especially fussy, and Mao's speaking voice hasn't fully grown in yet. But aside from that, as the 2nd story arc progresses, Mao literally becomes the Mineko as you might have seen in interviews. Even when she is surrounded by younger apprentices who are actually older than Mao, you don't notice this at all. You begin to like the character less, you can tell of her awareness of her power within her world and her popularity. There's scenes where she shows cold rage, jealousy, manipulation, regret, class superiority from the perspective of a woman. She becomes Naho; she becomes Riona.

7) Her chemistry with Nakamura Toru, who's a good 22 years her superior, is surprisingly sensual (there's also a few scenes where other men try to take advantage of her, which she always fights off.) At that point in the story, you actually see Mao's Mineko as a mid-20 something to 30-something woman, who is in love and hate with this famous actor. There's a few scenes where he steals her into the closet, not realizing she is Mineko. There's the pinkie scene. You can sense their mutual desire as well as the innately master/servant dynamic circumstances of their relation.

8) Mao not only knows how to cry big, but she can cry big 3 or 4 different ways. Throughout the story, there are 2 or 3 big crying scenes that require Mao to express Mineko from different emotional viewpoints. When she is still very young, somebody important to her dies and she cries like a lost child, staring at the skies for some that can save her. She cries like a girl. When she as a young maiko, learns of a terrible secret with somebody she loves, she flies into a rage, you can actually see her body convulsing heavily. When she loses a mentor when she is already a geisha, she is screaming and crying at the same time. Toward the end of the story, when she loses another person she loves as a middle-aged woman, she cries with deep exhaustion, her voice cracking while she's practicing a dance.

9) That said, the remarkable aspect of her acting is as her presence grows colder and stronger as Mineko ages, she is also more relaxed and less serious. That is, Mao isn't putting on "heirs" to depict her character's maturation. We realize that the stiff and self-consciousness of her performance in the beginning of the story is intentional, in order to reflect a young girl fending for herself. When she becomes the star/head of their operation, when she can make the people under her quiver under her authority, she seems almost amused. And sometimes cruel and cynical, but realistic and skilled as her formative influences. This builds to a deeply moving scene at the end of the film, where the one person, the fretful and subservient caretaker lady, who served her and actually loved her for who she really was, harshly rebukes her (again, the physicality of this drama comes back.) We enjoy their reconnection, and we appreciate the roundness of Mao's performance.

Wow...thanks for all that on Hanaikusa! I'd love to see it properly with subs.

NG clips were funny. Was Jun calling Mao's dad Susumu? Couldn't catch any of the dialogue.

ps. KurosakiKaien: I'm from Toronto. :D

It's some sort of promotional campaign - I'm guessing it's because they are launching a new blue chocola. Basically you have until 5pm on July 11th to enter this competition by answering a quiz. A winner or winners (it's doesn't say how many as far as I can see) will be drawn from the correct entries and those entrants will receive a red and blue special present (スペシャルプレゼント)!!

There's a new post in HYD-F site's blog today, and I don't know if I got the message right; I'm trying to figure what's about the new post.

HYD-F's preview/trailer would be released for the first time... at King's Brunch on 26 April 2008, which is tomorrow.

OKAY just a rough interpretation. maybe someone could help us to translate :blink

:) Yep! i watched live! XD The software is a nothing, i mean it takes nothing neither time or lots of hd space (wich is what worries me more XD )

I already have the ousama and trailer videos plus some pics ;) I still need to tweak with them but are really nice, Mao looks great with the promo dress and her and Jun are cuute ;)

I guess this should be posted in teh movie thread too XD

:crazy: ghaaaaa!!! noOo!!! i saw spoilers again!!! i should stop visiting this thread altogether after i see the hanadan movie :scratch:

That would be a really really appreciated! thanks!!!!

shan it's not really spoilers as that's a screencap from a trailer. trailers aren't there to spoil things for you. they are there to lure you in to watching the movie. now of course you were going to watch it anyway but if you dont indulge a little bit, then you aren't going to know what the heck the movie is about before going into it! and really, not visiting this thread until after you've seen the movie? That could be September or later! :whistling:

Red box suitcase? I'll see what I can find :lol

lolz, that was just hypothetically speaking. :P i could never really do that. since im a MAOholic. and i've got lots of idea about the movie as of now, so im sticking with the low profile with all the spoilers and informations about it. coz i think i had enough. i just want to see it once and for all. :lol

off topic: kathia_sophia, for the ones you've mentioned: kurosagi isn't on DVD yet and Last Princes isnt in theaters yet. Im sure someone will sub either of those when the DVD comes out for them however.
A good place to find movies is http://community.livejournal.com/jdramas . You must have an LJ account and join that community but it has a ton of movies and most if not all are subbed.

Back on topic, anyone seen a cast list for HYD movie lying around? :roll I saw one, I think on a blog, but I can't find it anymore! :cry:

^^Thanks zi91 :-) I can't read Japanese so oh well. What I saw was a translated version. I pretty much know who is gonna be in it anyway. From everything I've seen, doesn't seem like Tsubaki will be in it. :scratch:

I like the wallpapers too! Can't wait to see HYD! I hope there'll be more promotions and appearances in the coming weeks.

No Tsubaki? I remember reading that Matsushima Nanako had given birth to her second daughter around the time HYD was filming, so maybe they had to cut her out? That's too bad though, maybe she'll make a special guest appearance.

Thanks for the heads up! I wish unleashthegeek had full-res scans but I think she only comes across the small versions when she's surfing (based on everything she's said). The ones at boys_paper are freaking amazing! :D I smell a new avatar!

I saw the +act ones as well and based on the few pics unleash has posted, there are some extras like you said! I will see if the poster has the other ones as well :thumright:
I noticed Kikinini is the scanner for a ton of them. Does she post them anywhere else? I was on her vox but no pics there (could be friends only) :scratch:

They returned to Hong Kong to film "Makino Family in Hong Kong" special for the HYD-F movie. Mao was wearing a 100.000.000 yen diamond ring!

In her recent blog entry (May 5th 2008), Mao show us that she visited Hong Kong Disneyland and Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam.

Everybody is speculating that Mao went to Hong Kong after HYD-F movie crank up to film some special for the movie, but in my sincere opinion she was filming some traveling program for some documentary, since she was visiting Hanoi too... Let's see further for more information...

Thanks for the diary summaries iridium_yusuke :-)

So you think that she went back to Hong Kong for a travel documentary (ha so many actresses do this but it's still enjoyable)? But when you said she went back to Hong Kong to film "Makino family in HK", was that just speculation from why she was there or directly from the staff diary? Sorry, I'm just confused about your two posts :|

Hi all! I'm back from the dead... for now... lol

How's everyone doing?

Just to add on a previous translation by ToriQ about the Chocola ad:

The left reads "Amongst the correctly answered quizzes, a lottery will determine..." (the Red and Blue Chocola's special present). Deadline is 7/11 - 5PM.

Hey Ken. Good to have you back :-) Been busy with school? I'm doing well. Just about a week and half and I'm out for summer :cheers:

Lol the chances of any of us entering that Chocola contest is probably so slim. I assume they probably limit to Japan residents only. Hmm when I eventually go to Japan I need to bring back some Mao merchandise :D

Thanks ats, yeah I've just been busy with school, 2 weeks ago was finals and now the Spring session has started so it's back to excessive amounts of readings.. -_-;;

As for the contest, yes usually those prizes are limited to postcard entries coming from within Japan unfortunately. When are you planning to be in Japan though? Be sure to look me up~!
