Culture clash: Fans fight for J-Rock

By: Zac Bentz

Being a film geek is easy. Being a comic book geek is easy. These days, even being an anime geek is easy. But things start to get a bit tricky when it's bleeding-edge Japanese indie rock that you're after.

Sure, you might get a taste now and then if you're a hardcore anime otaku, but even then you're not getting an accurate feel for what's going on in the sweaty back alley clubs of Tokyo or Osaka. For that, you need to dig deep and have a passion for chasing down the ghostly hints of guitar feedback humming just beyond the horizon. Word of mouth from fellow fans is stronger than any billion dollar PR machine when that machine speaks a foreign language.

Kojima Haruna to play a magic student in new drama ‘Megu-tan tte Mahou Tsukaeruno?’



On July 2nd, it was revealed that AKB48’s Kojima Haruna will star in a late-night drama called ‘Megu-tan tte Mahou Tsukaeruno?‘ on NTV this coming summer season.

Kojima is going to play a mage-to-be called Megu, who is a total airhead and always gets treated as a poor student at her magic school. In order to get more practice, she gets dispatched to a boarding home in the human world called ‘Rokudemo Sou’, where she has to be a manager. However, her identity as a mage may never be exposed or she will never be able to return to her home world.

It’s been four years since Kojima’s last starring role in a drama. She commented, “Of course I’m nervous, but I’m not really feeling more pressure only because it’s a starring role.” People around her often call her a natural airhead, so you might think that this is the perfect role for her, but Kojima herself begs to differ. “I’m really not an airhead, which is why I’ll be able to portray this role accurately.
