Gouriki Ayame joins Okada Masaki in Mirai Nikki Live Action


Actress Ayame Gouriki will play the heroine opposite actor Masaki Okada in the live-action television adaptation of Sakae Esuno's Future Diary (Mirai Nikki) manga this April.

In the story of Mirai Nikki -Another:World-, 12 young people come into the possession of Future Diaries in which their futures are written. The 12 are forced to play a survival game and kill each other off.

According to producer Ryouta Fujino, Gouriki will play Yuno Furusaki, a new "Yuno" reimagined from the manga's female lead character Yuno Gasai. Like the manga Yuno, the live-action Yuno is one of the Future Diary owners, and she has a one-sided, stalker-like crush on Okada's male protagonist character Arata Hoshino (Yukiteru Amano in the manga). Yuno invariably shows up wherever Arata goes, and her beauty, blind love for Arata, and eccentric behavior belies her true intentions.

After smaller roles in various projects such as the Thriller Restaurant film, Gouriki had her major break in the January 2011 live-action series Taisetsu na Koto wa Subete Kimi ga Oshiete Kureta. She has starred in six consecutive live-action television series — one for each season — ever since. Okada's other works include Hana Kimi, BokuKimi, Otomen, Maho Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto, and this May's Space Bros. (Uchuu Kyoudai).

The new live-action series will be the first one to run in Fuji TV's 11 p.m. (specifically, 11:10 to 11:55 p.m.) timeslot on Saturdays in two years. Yusuke Watanabe (20th Century Boys trilogy, Gantz, Bloody Monday) is scripting the series.

The manga has sold 4 million copies and inspired both a video anime project and a television anime series which premiered in October. Tokyopop published 10 of the 12 manga volumes before shutting down its North American publishing operations last May. Funimation and the video-streaming service Niconico are streaming the television anime series as it airs in Japan.

Which actresses & actors possess healthy sex appeal?

Actress and model Yamada Yu recently graced the cover of the beauty and fashion magazine ‘anan‘ (2012.2.29 Edition).

The magazine is known for featuring various popular female and male celebrities in sexy or semi-nude covers and pictorials. Therefore it’s no surprise that Yamada’s pictures were well received, as she bared her beautiful upper body for the magazine’s cover-shot. The ‘perfect ageless body’, as the magazine described it, with the beautiful body line, clean skin and curvy hip must be pretty close to many women’s ideal body.

Many people praised Yamada for looking both, very sexy and very healthy on the cover-shot. Of course she isn’t the only one with healthy sex appeal and therefore goo (NTT DoCoMo) reached out to their mobile users again and asked them ‘which actresses & actors possess healthy sex appeal’.

NTV outlines behavior rules for AKB48, Johnny's Jr cast of TV drama


Members of AKB48 and Johnnys Jr will have to be on their best behavior when they film an NTV drama. The network has laid down the law on their behavior while they are filming “Shiritsu Bakareya Koko” (Private High School), which will be broadcast from April 14 each week at 12:50 a.m.

Johnny’s Jr is the “youthful” division of male singers at Johnny’s Jimusho. They usually include any artist who hasn’t released a CD yet. In the drama, they play delinquent students, while the AKB48 girls play spoiled rich girls.

Shintaro Morimoto, 14, who plays the leader of the bad boys, said: “I argued at school sometimes, but I never got into fights.”

To make sure there is no hanky-panky between the two groups, for whom a squeaky clean image is mandatory, NTV said it has three rules.

1. Romantic relationships between any members of the two sides are prohibited.
2. Giving each other mobile phone numbers and e-mail addresses is prohibited.
3. All cast members must go to bed (alone) early and get up early.

Morimoto said he’ll do his best with rule No. 3 but was evasive about Nos. 1 and 2.

AKB48 singer Haruka Shimazaki, 17, said: “A ban on relationships is normal anyway for AKB48, so it shouldn’t be a problem.”

The drama is the brainchild of AKB48 creator Yasushi Akimoto.
