As always, long time no see.  I wasn't sure where to post this so I thought I'd just share.  If you would like to repost, just make sure to ask and credit.  It's a rough translation, so sorry if there are any mistakes!  I am not too sure about all of the name translations.

4th-Nov-2014 11:27 pm - [Drama] Specialist 3
It has just been announced that Sho has been cast in the Kusanagi Tsuyoshi (SMAP) drama SP Specialist 3 on Asahi.  It will air this winter on the 29th.  I'm not sure if they mean November 29th or December 29th, but it's the 29th day of something.

There is no news on what his role will be in the drama special, but it's nice to see Sho working with Kusanagi Tsuyoshi again. The last time they did a project together (and I say 'together' loosely because of the huge difference in seniority), was in the Korea-Japan stage play of "Boku ni Honoo no Sensha wo" at the end of 2012.

At that time, Sho was able to take part in the production within Japan, but he was not able to go to Korea as part of the production tour.  My guess is that he was a minor at the time, so it would have been more complicated for him to go overseas and was also able to complete the tour of the play in Korea to a sold-out venue.  I was not aware that he did go because there was so little information on Sho in regards to coverage in Korea.  But I spoke too soon.  In one of his more recent magazine bits, he said that he'll forever cherish the moment that he had with Kusanagi Tsuyoshi when they walked by a river in Korea.  I can imagine it already.  Sho awkward and silent but extremely receptive, Tsuyoshi breaking the silence with simple, deep thoughts.

Anyhow, I always feel so grateful to see him being active. He really has been getting consistent work and his roles always seem to be a little off-Johnny, if that makes any sense.  Even when it's just a cameo, or a part in an ensemble, he rolls with it and he makes his bits memorable.  I still don't think of Sho as an acting genius because, let's face it, he's not, but there's something very approachable and grounded about him.

He reminds me a lot of Inocchi (V6) in that he's the typical Japanese guy, a face that looks familiar. I can see Johnny trying to market him as the next Ikuta Toma, and there are comments on the net about that, but to me, he's just a normal boy that works hard and has the craziest, ugly-adorable-awkward laughing faces ever.  He hasn't really had a breakout role yet, but he's consistently improving, which is always a joy to see.

Sho shaves all of his hair in Battery, probably saves every last strand because he's so traumatized.

Gets cast in Tengoku no Koi years later, can't grow real chest hair and remembers.  !  He's got a hair stash!  Goes to the make up room the next day with a bag of real hair.  Going green, ladies and gents.  Always classy.
11th-May-2014 01:12 am - [drama] Black President
I'm a bad moderator.  I know this, but I'll put this up anyways.  Sho was announced as part of the ensemble cast for the spring 2014 drama Black President.  This is a primetime drama airing on FujiTV.  The summary sounds really boring.  Really boring.

Black President is about a company president who goes back to school to relearn the basics.  He believes that his company policies are fair, and that he is a good president.  He realizes that he's dead wrong, and that he has been treating his employees unfairly.  blah blah blah

I wish I could be excited enough to watch it.  It might be okay, but I'm not rushing.  Sho plays the role of Maekawa Kenta, a college student that, I suppose, is the company president's classmate?  Maekawa Kenta is 21 and also the vice president of the Film Club on campus.  Maybe he uses his cameraman powers and takes footage of incriminating evidence for his friends?  Shrugging over here.

I really need to see Sho in something light.  I think that he's restricted himself in growth by playing these dark, broody characters.  I don't want to say that it's one-note acting, but his "intense gaze" is on overkill.  I need me some silly Sho in a sweet and goofy drama.  Come on, Johnny!  I know you read this blog secretly!  I mean, I know that Sho's not the most natural or the greatest budding actor in your arsenal, but you're turning him into a one-note song!

Oh, brother.  I shouldn't be complaining.  At least Sho's been kept busy.  I really wonder how he's been able to keep up with school work.  Hm.  Never really thought about that.
I have been reading news reports here and there about Tengoku no Koi, but still have not tuned in to watch.  It turns out that I am not the only one.  The drama is doing abysmally in the ratings, premiering at 3.7%, which is respectable for its noon timeslot, but by the fifth episode, those ratings dipped to 2%.

What is interesting about the drama is sadly not the drama itself, despite the intriguing storyline.  The story is about a 40-something housewife who becomes entangled in a risque love triangle with two men in their 20s, one a budding musician and the other reminiscent of her first love twenty-some years past.  It should make for a good watch, but the more provocative question is this: why should we even care about a low-rated noon-drama?
You should really keep reading. I promise that you will die from laughter and shock.Collapse )

The noon soap-opera has been on air since October 12, but I have not been able to watch it yet.  Anyone watch it?  I went to the website and cringed so hard at Sho's new look for the show.

They aged him by giving him a mustache.  Ughhh.  It looks so wrong.  The other picture from the character chart makes Sho look so smarmy.  What is this world coming to?  I really hope the drama does well, but come on!  


smarmy Sho hiding for a reasonCollapse )
I'm a bit slow posting, but Sho has been having a very fortunate year.  It was announced in September that Sho would be starring in the daytime-drama Tengoku no Koi this fall.

If you have heard about it, you'll understand that this role will be new territory for our growing Sho.  The drama is about romantic entanglements between a 40-something woman and two 20-something men.

Sho is on a roll. He did a cameo in episode 1 of Kamen Teacher as a student named Imai Satoshi. I don't think he'll be making any more appearances, seeing as he was a bullied student who turned to suicide. :(
He doesn't die, thank goodness, and ends up making Satoshi a lovely, heartfelt character.  Props to both Taiga's Bon and Sho's Satoshi. I think we'll be seeing more acting from them both.

In brighter news, there is news about Sho being cast in an upcoming horror film alongside Kis-My-Ft2's Senga Kento and the lovely Mizukawa Asami. The story is about the mysterious and horrifying appearance of doppelgangers. It will be released in 2014.

2nd-Jul-2013 02:01 pm - Sho has been a busy boy [Updates]
I've been away from livejournal for a long time, away from fandom in general for a long time.  Sho is still a very special person to me and I'm anticipating his rising star.  He's been quite busy in the past year and though this entry will be pretty rough, I'd like to update everyone on his activities.

After his appearance in the Team Batista SP Silence of the Nightingale alongside Nakajima Kento in 2009, Sho did not do any television acting for another two years.

I was lucky enough to catch the local broadcast of Sho in Izakaya Moheji, a special drama that aired in September 2011.  It was a birthday gift to him, in a sense.  He celebrated on set, just as he did for Team Batista two years prior.  In Izakaya Moheji, Sho played the role of Akira, the troubled older sibling.  I thought he did okay, but I was sad that his character was so dark.  Sho keeps saying how much he would love to do something lighter, play a cheerful character closer to his own persona, but he's been mostly cast as dark, brooding boys.
