Crank up

Today too thanks for everything (^-^)/ After filming for POP ya and Myojo ended, I went back home !! The way POP ya is written is similar to Jump, it’s like filming for a drama. It’s fun and I’m playing a different character !! Actually yesterday… was the day of crank up for the drama, Puzzle with its lengthy 4 months of filming !! The 4 of us, with Ishihara Satomi-chan as the lead and Kimura Ryo-kun and Nagayama Kento-kun, we were always doing our best during filming. Somehow when it ended, the tears wouldn’t stop. I didn’t think I’d cry like that, I was surprised !! But it was a production that sapped me physically and mentally so the feeling I had on completing it was refreshing !! Tomorrow is the start of new activities so I’ll try my best to switch moods (^-^)/

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*) Looks like we’ll 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 (^-^)/

Thanks for your thoughts !!

Today too thanks for everything (^-^)/ Thanks for the many comments on your impression of Puzzle (^O^)/ It gave me a lot of encouragement and from the bottom of my heart, I’m glad that I did my best for it !! The broadcast has just begun though so I invite everyone to the mystery of the puzzle and the slapstick comedy next week, and then the week after too (^-^)/ Please watch next week too ne !!

I think I’ll upload a phone photo today, it’s been awhile since I did that !! Perhaps this will be the final photo of me in a school uniform !! (*laugh*)

I’m filming at the studio from early morning tomorrow too !! I’ll do my best for the last spurt (^O^)/

Good evening ! Today too thanks for everything (^-^)/ I haven’t been able to go back to my home for almost a week, to be able to do so finally is great (^-^)/
It’s the broadcast day for the drama Puzzle today ne o(^▽^)o I’m glad that everyone who commented seemed like they’re looking forward to it !! Us, the Kinben Boys are filming in Kansai from early morning today, but Satomi-chan looks like she’ll be doing denpa jack from morning, difficult ne !!
Well~, just a little bit more and the Puzzle filming is going to end !! The staff, cast and all of us involved in it have worked hard through the lengthy filming and cold locations and strict schedule !! So be it one person, or many, who watch the drama, I’ll be happy ! Furthermore, I’ll be glad if there’s a sequel to Part 2 or something like that, it’s the kind of work easy to feel an attachment for (’-^*)/

Good evening !! Today too thanks for everything !! Yesterday we had a press conference for Puzzle at TV Asahi !! I think there were people from the newspapers and news media there (^-^)/ The atrium at TV Asahi is going to be decorated with a really large Puzzle panel !!! If you’re visiting Tokyo, please drop by TV Asahi (^O^)/
The drama is finally going to start the day after tomorrow !! It’s been awhile since I was in a drama… everyone please watch !! Please look forward to the ‘noisy harmony’ between the 4 of us co-stars, Satomi-chan, Ryo-kun and Nagayama-kun and myself !! It’s on Friday from 9 o’clock (^O^)/
Tomorrow it’ll rain in Kansai ↓↓ It looks like the filming will be brought forward because of the rain ↓↓ I think it’s going to be difficult but I’ll do my best !!

Rain Man ??

We headed to the countryside for our filming location today (^O^)/ After a meeting about some new work yesterday, I boarded a plane and came to the Kansai location !! Dense with nature, there’s a calm atmosphere about this location. It made me feel fresh !! For Puzzle, there were many types of locations; in rocky areas, caves… forests and such, my legs have undergone some training !! Today’s filming is at the beach… my calf muscles are in terrible pain !! (*laugh*)
It’s raining now !! Would it affect tomorrow’s filming ?? Well, it just might !! When it comes to filming Puzzle, the rain would make its rounds around every filming location (*laugh*) Among the staff and cast is there a rain man ?? They were talking about that (*laugh*) I keep it a secret from everyone but actually… I’m the one !! Lately, there’s been many times when I feel like I’ve become the Rain Man !! It rained even when I went out to shake hands with the fans for the launch of my photobook ne ↓↓
It’ll be great if we can somehow get filming done tommorow… everyone… please make some of those paper dolls to pray for fine weather (*laugh*)

Handsome Suit

Good morning !! Today was crank-up for the movie, Handsome Suit (^-^)/ Puzzle and Hanakazari filming was done concurrently but taking on a new character was really fun. Everyday I learnt something from the filming location (^O^)/ Thank you very much !!

Which reminds me, yesterday was off day for me after so long !! I just slept from morning till evening… before I realized it, it’s already today !! Perhaps, just wishing for sleep is just like Yamamoto Yusuke !! From long ago, I’d be a useless kid unless I get some sleep ↓↓

Good morning !! Filming for Puzzle was in a studio today !! On the way to the studio, I passed by a park with beautiful cherry blossoms !! It’s already April… in a few days the cherry blossoms are going to fall ne !! I didn’t go for hanami (cherry blossom viewing) this year ↓↓ Did everyone go ?? All the way I was waiting for a chance to go for hanami but because of the weather or work, the conditions were never right so had to give it up. Yeah, I definitely want to go next year !!
Tomorrow’s filming for Hanazakari no Kimitachi e !! It’s crank-up for Kayashima tomorrow !! Meeting everyone after all this time, being encouraged in various ways, it was a good opportunity to reflect on myself !! After this, I too will increase my pace, to grow as an actor, and to grow into adult, with everyone I work with. This is what I hope to do (^O^)/

Good morning !! Filming for Puzzle was from early morning today !! The shooting for Puzzle will soon reach its climax !! The filming for the drama started in December… there were many regional locations too. It’s a serious drama so the filming period is longer than usual dramas but it feels like just like that, it’ll soon come to a close already !! Maybe I feel that way because it’s nearing completion !! It was fun and also tough !! That drama is also nearing its broadcast day !! Everyone please watch it without fail (^O^)/
The high school student skilled in both the literary and military arts will turn up from early this morning too !!
By the way, POP Ya will start from the day after tomorrow !!
