thanks for the site!:)
yatta!i'm so excited for Maki's new drama!:)

-->i still want Pi to be the lead actor. ;D

I'm kinda glad it isn't Pi, but I have no idea how Kitagawa is going to be.
The producer trusts him, so we should do that too.. I guess.

hehe.i'm a big fan of YamaKi so i really prefer Pi than Kitagawa.
but as you've said,lets trust the producer.
and lets give a try for kitagawa. :)
i'll still support this drama for Maki!:)
ganbatte Maki!

Thanks for the new info about the cast. I'm still a little unsure about them, though. This is a Monday night drama, and the male lead has very done very little acting. And while the rest of the cast is nice, most of them aren't, well. . . they're fine, but I'm surprised with the casting.



I'm not surprised that they went with someone older than Maki. I think that will balance out well.
And, I'm kind of glad that he seems to be a normal guy; not overly rich.


Some of my thoughts on the characters:


Kashii Yu - she's a mean guy, eh? Honestly, I don't know if she can do it. I find her acting "good" at best. I've seen her in the first Death Note film, My Boss, My Hero, and Yukan Club. This role certainly seems like a strench for her, at least to me. I hope she does well, if only because I'm looking forward to the drama. But, I am worried about her acting.


Fukushi Seiji - Honestly, I've only seen him in Nodame Cantabile, but the character seems rather angsty. All dark, and wishing to be free from jail. I just hope they don't go overboard with his angstyness.


Narimiya Hiroki - I like him as an actor. I've actually seen him in several things and I tend to think he does a nice job in most of his work. I'm going to take a leap and say that he's either in love with his best friend, his best friend's girlfriend, or the Maki character. From what was said, I get the feeling he'll fall/has fallen for someone he really shouldn't have.


Uchida Yuki - I have not seen her in one thing! But, from what I've read, her character is a beautiful and charming woman. That will certainly make the love triangle interesting.



Kitagawa Yujin - I'm still so surprised by the casting. But, I do hope he does well.


Horikita Maki - She does angst really well. I'm not overly worried.



And, some thoughts about the writer MHO, of course:
Asano Taeko scares me. Why? Because the first Nana film was good; Love Generation could be annoying at times, but overall was reather good; Kamisama Mou Sukoshi Dake is very sad, but also one of the best jdramas I've seen; Last Friends was overly melodramatic, had annoying characters, and uneven. All this makes me extremely worried that this drama will get all overly dramatic and have cliches characters.

^A lot of drama writers seem to have their ups and downs. But yeah, let's hope we won't get a lot of cliche's. The worst would be if Kitagawa's character was the real killer!

His best friend's fiancee is also probably is his sister judging from their names... That seems like it could be a possibility too.. Eek.

off topic, i found a PV of Yuzu where Kitagawa plays a cross dresser:


so he has one thing in common with Maki, both of them had gender-bending roles.:D

he's so cute in the PV! :wub:
im sure he will have a great chemistry with Maki.. :wub: :D

I have high hopes for this. Hopefully it won't drag like LF ended up dragging. Kitagawa will be a fresh face.

yea, I felt somehow relieved when they say the main guy is a pianist directs a children’s church choir, &not another rich/arrogant guy ^^ well the prince in Cinderella was not really arrogant but it seems quiet common in doramas such type of role ^^, As someone mentioned before, please don't let him be the real murderer, this'll be like the worst cliché ever :salut:

I didn't like LF, at all. Simply because the drama doesn't give out anything but the violence of DV, it looks much more like a promotional drama. I felt like the writer dropped her original idea& changed it according to the prod. desire of high ratings.. blah, I hope this time, with no Johnny present, they'll let her do her job o_o and if it's not too demanding from me, please don't let anyone die either .

Innocent Love will start on October 20!

Mihara Iona revealed this on her blog in an entry on Monday this week.
Now who is that woman? Apparently she's an actress who will play the role of the mother.
She only has like two scenes in the first episode.

Iona and the script for Innocent Love

So far she had guest roles in "Daisuki!!", "Bara no nai Hanaya" and "CHANGE" (only for 1 ep each). She also had cameos in a couple of other doramas like "Densha Otoko", but they are not worth talking about. ^^

Does anyone else get the feeling that Narimiya big secret is that he's gay or something equally has tired some? I just don't find that kind of thing "shocking", and I doubt other viewers do. But, I just get this feeling that Narimiya big secret will be something a bit silly.

Fresh from the news

Even Yamada Yuu was surprised! Shintarou with short hair

Image Image Image Image

Today it's been announced that Yamada Yuu's younger brother Shintarou will play a role in the upcoming Fuji TV dorama "Innocent Love" (Monday 9pm / starting Oct.20) and for that he had to cut his hair really short.

It took 15 minutes from when producer Nakano Toshiyuki personally put on the barber's clippers to cut Shintarou's long hair until the final cut. His hair is more than 20 centimeters shorter than before and he now looks like a young baseball player. At the moment when he looked into the mirror and saw his new hair cut for the first time, he first didn't know what to say, but it didn't take long until he recovered from the shock. "I didn't have such short hair since elementary school, it's very refreshing. I'll keep that freshness in my heart from now on," he said with enthusiasm.

Shintarou's role will be that of the leader of a gang in the juvenile prison that steadily torments Youji (Fukushi Seiji), the older brother of the female protagonist Kanon (Horikita Maki). Usually Shintarou is known for his gentle character and it will be interesting to see him in such a threatening role.

Orion (english translation)

It was me who cried
Not showing your weakness doesn't mean that you're strong
That's what you told me. I believe

My breath becomes cold and my foot stretches in front of me back home
I might even forget the warmness that I felt just now
I just realized how it feels to love someone

It was me who cried
The beautiful winter concellations, hope they don't disappear from the skies
I looked at it, I believe

I want to protect this hand so that it will never seperate
What I want to say doesn't come out as words
Laughing at things, surrounding you softly

Counting the number of shooting stars
I'm here right now because we met
I believe - That's what you told me. I believe

It was me who cried
Not showing your weakness doesn't mean that you're strong
That's what you told me

I believe - You told me... I believe

Today it has been announced that Nakashima Mika herself will have a role in the TBS dorama "Ryusei no Kizuna", her new song "ORION" will be used as a background song for the same dorama!

With that the chances of it becoming the theme song for Innocent Love basically became zero.

According to a new Sanspo article, Utada’s “Eternally” will be used for the upcoming Horikita Maki drama “Innocent Love” theme song. The track, originally off Utada’s 2001 album “Distance,” has been remixed for the occasion, and is now titled “Eternally - Drama Mix.” The track was mixed in London, with new vocals, additional bass and drums, to bring the sound into 2008. No word on a CD release, although Chaku-Uta downloads will commence on the day of the first episode of “Innocent Love,” October 20th.

Eternally, huh? I hope the new vocals are improved. It's a pretty song but I always thought Hikki was straining too hard in the chorus (actually a common thing in her songs).

I'm looking forward to this drama because it seems really interesting. However I'm remembering being disappointed with Last Friends and hope it doesn't go the same route.

Lyric for those who're interested :


You sparkle a little in front of my eyes
I can't see around me
Where are we?

Don't disappear
Into the background that's started to get noisy
I can't hear anything anymore
But I can feel you breathe

This isn't really like me, but I'm expecting, oh oh
A surprisingly whimsical development

I wanna be here eternally
I want us to keep gazing at each other like this
I can feel you close to me
I can't stay by your side forever
I just want this moment to last forever

Before I go out to fight
I want to take a break with you
Promises are for the next time we see each other
Can you hear me breathe?

There are times, oh oh
When anyone would be excited by an unsurprising development

I wanna be here eternally
Somewhere where nobody can find us
I can see you're all I need
I don't need any help until tomorrow
Surely even this moment is just a fantasy

I can feel you close to me
Even if I can't go back to that place
Just this feeling will last forever

I wanna be here eternally
I can see you're all I need
Only this moment will last forever


:wub: I love the feeling of it.. :D

So I had a little free time and added "Eternally" to the CM a few hours ago. Remember that this version of the song is not the actual theme song for the drama.

Nevertheless, I like it. :lol

Nice one Sano-kun! :D
It really fits the pace of the CM, but after all the producer said that this song inspired him for Innocent Love.. so it's no surprise I guess. ^^
It's an unexpected move.. to recycle some 7 year old song..

I'm sorry if I'm spamming so much about the theme song, but it's been officially confirmed by Utada's official Japanese site.

According to several news sources, it appears that the “new” vocals are actually different takes from the original 2001 recording sessions of “Eternally.” - U.BLOG

Booo. XD

You sparkle a little in front of my eyes
I can't see around me
Where are we?

Don't disappear
Into the background that's started to get noisy
I can't hear anything anymore
But I can feel you breathe

This isn't really like me, but I'm expecting, oh oh
A surprisingly whimsical development

I wanna be here eternally
I want us to keep gazing at each other like this
I can feel you close to me
I can't stay by your side forever
I just want this moment to last forever

Before I go out to fight
I want to take a break with you
Promises are for the next time we see each other
Can you hear me breathe?
