Tomogui | Backwater (2014) - Tooma
Congratulations on your Newcomer Award at the Japan Academy Awards for the raw portrayal of the character Tooma. Can’t wait to see the other 2014 films you have lined up for release this year. And to watch you grow and mature as an actor, as you do, after every film.
Shinsengumi PEACE MAKER (2012)
I really enjoyed this stage. Overall I thought the cast was better. I liked the pacing of the play more. I liked the interaction and exploration of Tetsunosuke and Suzu friendship more (helped by the fact SEIYA and Sano are good friends). Also the interaction between Okita and Tetsunosuke was better, but that could have been because Mao was more comfortable in the role a second time around. Plus even the stage direction and production was better ( granted it was also like an hour longer than the first).
Well that was a pleasant surprise to see Arai. Didn’t know he was going to appear, then again I haven’t been able to check blogs this week because of school load and family matters. Either way he keeps his title (which is shared with Nishii) for ”maverick” actor in D2. I hope he follows a similar path to Endo as he continues to better his acting and challenge himself. Next will be seeing him naked. jk.
OMG OMG OMG OMG OMAIGOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!!!
I’ve always dreamed about this!!!!!! XDDDD Akkun plays together with Tacchon!!!! XDDD
Too bad they’re not act as brothers
I understand, Tacchon is my number one in Kanjani8 and Arai is number uno in D2 (plus they were also the reason why I got into each group in the first place). Then there is the fact they can look alike and have similar interests like sleeping. Plus both can play the drums. I also think Arai can be too effin’ pretty for his own good the same way Tacchon can be/ was in his earlier days (especially with the longer hair). I also think they have a similar work ethics; both belong to the acting class of their respective group however aren’t the most popular. And when “on” they can be fantastic and high energy and boisterous, and professional all at the same time. But when “off” they get incredibly lazy.
