Meisa meets Angelina Jolie at the Salt premiere.

I wouldn't be surprised if Meisa ended up doing the Japanese voice over for when Salt releases a dubbed version in Japan. She did the voice over for Kim Tae Hee's character in IRIS, and Yu Shirota voiced over for the second guy (!!!!).

Just showing up in a picture with A. Jolie has boosted Meisa's name and image in western portals a ridiculous amount. Tread carefully - we don't want another Tokyo Drift on our hands here. Or another remake of an Asian horror film.

hey Japan

WHY SO PRETTY?

My favorite collabs are of course the Maki x ND Chow, the Meisa x Leslie Kee (SWEET POWER ♥ Singapore!) and the Mao Inoue, but the Erika Sawajiri x Mika Ninagawa layout is pretty spectacular too.



ALSO. I have a copy of Jaejoong's An An. Way to buck convention by appearing clothed and WITHOUT European sideboob, Jaejoong! You always were classier than all of those hoes.

I'm going to look around for an embeddable version, but here it is. The official Yazima Beauty Salon movie trailer! So much that is both wrong and AMAZING about it.

Watch out for Meisa dancing and Yusuke bloody nosed and more cross-dressing hijinks than you can throw a D-boy troupe at.

crossposted to [livejournal.com profile] teamsweetpower, my pet project that I'm still not done with, but the skeleton's assembled

With a roadshow release date of April 29, 2010

recap from Tokyograph:

The film will cover the group's fictional history up until their CD debut last year.

The parody group consists of the Yajima family, which is a 37-year-old mother named Margaret (played by Tunnels' Noritake Kinashi), plus her 12-year-old daughter Strawberry (played by Tunnels' Takaaki Ishibashi) and 18-year-old daughter Naomi (played by DJ OZMA). So far, the only known detail of the group's history is that they came from Nevada to search for Margaret's missing Japanese husband. The movie, titled "Yajima Biyoshitsu THE MOVIE ~Yume wo Tsukama Nevada~," will flesh out their story.

Meisa is playing a character called Raspberry. Yusuke Yamamoto (yay!), Seiko Matsuda, Dante Carver also star in the film.

on my twitter feed, came across the Golden Rock review of Assault Girls, and it was not good at all.

@GoldenRock
"Assault Girls terrible and terribly slow, even for Oshii, who can make a 70-minute movie with three girls with weapons feel boring."

emphasis mine - seriously, Japan. HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE. I mean America has churned out its fair share of CGI-heavy brain-melting head scratchers, but generally it's entertaining crap. I'm a fan of the Golden Rock (he's in my links list) and trust his reporting for the most part, so I'm really disappointed that Assault Girls has delivered MEH instead of OH MY GOD AWESOME as I was hoping. Because while it didn't look 'good' (in a you know, plot and story sense) it looked entertaining.

And now I hear it's BORING?

WTF JAPAN. HIRE ME TO WRITE A BAD MOVIE. I WILL USE NINJAS.
