from Tofugu's 5 scary Japanese things for Halloween post.



Littlest Hobo shout out, you know it.

So, I'm going to write about the Halloween Party in another post, but yesterday I hung out with a new friend I made at the Foreigners/Koreans dinner. We ate lunch at Outback Steak House, we talked about the difficulties of work and what we loved about being teachers in a foreign land, and then we spent the rest of the day shopping, browsing in book stores, buying presents for other people (me - there are going to be some care packages winging their way westward soon), and eating yummy Korean fried chicken at the end of the day. With crinkle cut fries and tater tots. I also got a wooly hat with a bobble on it and it is bright turquoise blue. It is the best hat in the world.

I have to go finish grading papers and online homework, but pictures, Halloween Make Up (though I am not going out, I can still do this at home!) and more later.

Also I am following JYJ on twitter and the fact that Jaejoong tweets that he can't wait to fly home to see his cat makes me kind of melt. I love people who love animals, and when they are ridiculously attractive men who love their cats, I melt more. TRUTH.

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.

when Korea screws me over, Japan tends to bring the happy: I don't say this enough about some dramas, but Seriously, Tumbling is So Fabulously Gay and Sparkly it outsparkles Korea and a Liberace tribute and JE's stage outfits.

Yamamoto Yusuke & Seto Koji and Nishiyama & the littlest Hanadan brother - YOU ARE GLORIOUS AND I LOVE YOU.

Oh you know I will be watching this. YOU KNOW.

Yusuke Yamamoto stars in rhythmic gymnastics drama
from Tokyograph
This spring, TBS will explore the world of men's rhythmic gymnastics with a new drama series titled "Tumbling." The show will feature a cast of popular young actors, led by Yusuke Yamamoto (22) in his first lead role in a series.

Yamamoto plays a high school delinquent who has a weakness for women. When an attractive transfer student (Azusa Okamoto) joins the women's rhythmic gymnastics team, he responds by joining the men's team and soon discovers a passion for the sport. Since last fall, Yamamoto has been undergoing special gymnastics training for the role.

Although men's rhythmic gymnastics originated in Japan, the sport is still dominated by women. It is estimated that there are only about a thousand men involved in the sport competitively.

The supporting cast of "Tumbling" includes Koji Seto, Shohei Miura, Shunsuke Daito, Takahiro Nishijima, Satoshi Tomiura, Tomo Yanagishita, Kento Kaku, Soran Tamoto, Rei Okamoto, Jiro Sato, Ryoko Kuninaka, and Nene Otsuka.

TBS plans to broadcast the series on Sunday nights at 7:56pm, starting in April.


MINI ATADANHANAKIMI reunion with D-boys, that darling attention whore from AAA & Love Exposure (the best 4 hour Japanese movie you've never seen) and cute Rei Okamoto (Akai Ito).

Way to step up the game, TBS. Clearly you're not going to let Fuji get away with it.

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.
