Miliyah Kato writing novel, is the next Natsume Souseki


Singer-songwriter Kato Miliyah will release her first novel on September 22. The novel's title has yet to be decided. It took her a year to complete the novel.

The singer released her best-of album, "M BEST" recently to mark her seventh year in the music industry, and the album ranked number one in its first week. This marks her third consecutive #1 album, with 2008's "BEST DESTINY," a "sampling best," and the original album, "DESTINY" released last year. "M BEST" has sold over 250,000 since it was released on August 3, proving to be a hit.

Campus Summit 2011 Pictures – Shibuya Fashion, Gal Doll, PlayZ, CIEL, Misaki & More



In early August, one of Tokyo’s biggest gyaru (and gyaru-o) events of the year was held at Shibuya O-East. Almost 2,000 girls and guys styled in full-on Shibuya hair, fashion, and makeup – along with many of the top names in Shibuya gyaru culture and music – were in attendance for the huge “Campus Summit 2011″ party. This year’s party was sponsored by the Japanese colored contact lens company TeAmo.

Campus Summit is an event organized by student clubs across Japan. The clubs hold not only the annual Summit in Shibuya, but also 57 smaller gatherings in 47 of Japan’s prefectures. Since its inception in 1995, over 270,000 high school and college students have participated in Campus Summit, and 450,000 copies of the event’s CDs have been sold. This year’s tie-in CD “Campus Summit 2011″ went on sale in late July on the Avex label.

With the Tokyo party being the biggest Campus Summit event in all of Japan, the lineup reads like a who’s who of Shibuya gyaru (“gal”) and gyaruo (male “gals”) culture. Campus Summit 2011′s image girls were super-gyarus Yumachi and Aina – both of whom were on hand and doing double duty as singers as well as hosts. In addition to the supercute duo, attendees cheered on the “No. 1 Fashion Producer Battle” sponsored by Japanese fashion magazine Salus, in which egg models Kanako Kawabata, Yumachi, Nemoyayo, Maña, Mirai, Erichose, and Kate Riho competed to put together the best ensemble using pieces selected by Salus from online fashion retailers.

Poor Ayaya

Singer Matsuura Aya has revealed through her official website and blog that she was diagnosed with endometriosis.
Over the past four years, Matsuura has been experiencing abdominal pain, and so she consulted a doctor, who diagnosed her with the gynecological condition. It’s because of this reason that Matsuura has been refraining from tours and extensive music activities.
Since this year will celebrate the 10th year of her debut, the singer decided to reveal her secret in order to bring public awareness about the disease.
On her blog, Matsuura wrote, “For me, this is a personal and delicate problem, so only people close to me have known about this during the years of my activity. However, this is the 10th anniversary of my debut, it is an important year for both me and my fans. I can’t just stop without doing anything, when I’m hearing everyone’s voices.”
She continued, “I found that there are many people who are afflicted by the same illness. Also, I found out that it’s too late if the condition worsens by ignoring it, instead of visiting the hospital.” She hopes that with this announcement, “Many women will come to know about this illness. If there is anything bothering you, I suggest that you visit the hospital as soon as possible. I hope this becomes an opportunity.”
Regarding the illness itself, Matsuura’s official website explains, “It is said that there are 1-2 million potential patients. Not too long ago, it was an illness that was found commonly in women after childbirth, but recently, it has been affecting women in their 20’s and 30’s, and the cure for it is limited. We have heard that the specific cause has not yet been determined.”
As for Matsuura, her agency stated, “Depending on the person, the condition differs. However, because this is a disease associated with acute pains, we have been refraining from concerts, and have continued her activities while considering her health.”
Matsuura will continue to act and record new songs. She also showed her motivation saying, “I will continue with my activities without pushing myself too hard.”

Karina, Yoshitaka Yuriko, Oshima Yuko lead Fuji TV’s next Monday night drama

Fuji TV has announced its Monday night drama for next season. The show appears to be titled “Watashi ga Renai Dekinai Riyuu” and stars actress/model Karina(27). Yoshitaka Yuriko (23) and AKB48member Oshima Yuko (22) will also play main characters.
This will be Karina’s first lead role in a “Getsu 9” series. For Oshima, this is her first regular role in that time slot.
As the title suggests, the three of them will play women who can’t fall in love. Karina plays a 27-year-old woman named Fujii Emi, who wants to truly fall in love but who is unable to forget her ex-boyfriend.
Yoshitaka plays the 24-year-old Ogura Saki, Emi’s junior in high school who has never really fallen in love. Unable to find a regular job, she started working as a hostess at a cabaret club, keeping it a secret from her parents. However, her “first love” ends up being a married man.
Oshima plays 22-year-old Mako, also from the same high school, who is always futilely running around in circles when it comes to love.
Tanaka Kei plays Emi’s former boyfriend and co-worker, while Kurashina Kana plays his current girlfriend. Other cast members include Nakao Akiyoshi, Kagami Seira, Nakamura Ryu, Katsumura Masanobu, Hagiwara Masato, and Inamori Izumi.
Fuji TV will begin airing the series this October. source: Tokyograph

Shinsei Kamattechan's performance on Coming Soon goes viral

Shinsei Kamattechan's performance on the live music program Coming Soon has gone viral for being...well, weird as hell. The vocalist deviated completely from the lyrics at times, rolling around on the ground and sticking pieces of fish cake on the camera.

The indie rock band became famous through their videos on YouTube and Nico Nico Douga in 2010. They had appeared on the show Coming Soon to promote their new album.



Apparently after the taping, Nakai invited them back on to the show, according to a tweet by the band's manager.

The October issue of Shueisha's Jump Square magazine is announcing on Saturday that Yuu Aoi, Munetaka Aoki, and Taketo Tanaka have joined next year's live-action film adaptation of Nobuhiro Watsuki's Rurouni Kenshin samurai manga. Aoi (Hana and Alice, Honey and Clover) will play Megumi Takani, while Aoki (The Last Message Umizaru, live-action The Girl Who Leapt Through Time) will play Sanosuke Sagara. 11-year-old Tanaka will take on the role of Yahiko Myōjin.

22-year-old actor Takeru Satoh (Kamen Rider Den-O, Rookies, Beck, Ryōmaden) has already been cast as the title samurai himself, and 17-year-old actress Emi Takei will play the heroine Kaoru Kamiya. Keishi Ōtomo will direct Satoh, Aoi, and Aoki on this new film, just as he did in last year's NHK historical television series Ryōmaden. Warner Brothers Pictures Japan is producing the film, and filming began last month.
