Aoi Yuu didn’t inform agency of new hairstyle, forced to wear wig


Actress Aoi Yuu has recently been in the headlines for going through a drastic change from her trademark long hair to a very short, fresh new hairstyle.

The change in hairstyle was made public with a detailed interview in a fashion magazine and a new CM for an apparel brand. In the interview, she explained that she felt like she had been hiding her flaws behind her long hair and that she wanted to drive herself forward again with a change. At the stage greeting for her new movie ‘Vampire‘ on September 15, she also once again emphasized it’s the first time for her to sport such a short hairstyle.

However, what seems like a fresh start of an ambitious actress, is actually receiving some criticism from the top brass of the industry. One executive staff member who knows the actress commented, “This isn’t really that much of an impressive story…

Furthermore, it has now become clear that Aoi didn’t inform her agency about the sudden change, which happened in mid-August, beforehand at all. A person from the movie industry stated, “Until the previous day, she was still sporting her long hair and the next time she surprised us with short hair! Everyone around her was in a state of panic!

There is public proof that she really caught her agency completely off-guard. On August 25, she attended the stage greeting for the movie ‘Rurouni Kenshin‘, and when you look at the photos now, it’s more than obvious that she was wearing a wig to cover her new hairstyle.

Another industry insider explained, “In the movie Aoi is still sporting her long hair, so it’s common sense that she should promote it with long hair as well. The promotions were still going on, and she suddenly cuts her hair short. You just cannot do that! Her management was in a panic prior to the stage greeting and prepared a wig for the event.

It’s said that the starring actors Sato Takeru and Takei Emi were informed about her new hairstyle before appearing in front of the audience. Apparently they were dying to mention it on stage, but they had to restrain themselves from doing so.

Aoi’s agency doesn’t seem to have the actress firmly under control anymore. First, she publicly announced her relationship with actor Suzuki Kosuke, and now she arbitrarily cut her hair without telling them. She sure knows how to keep her management on their toes.

German pedophile releases book about Johnny's fandom

In a release that's sure to shock the literary world as we know it, German manboy and pedophile Marcus Herzig, better known as Kamichan to the young women that populate the fandom he frequents, has released a book, in which he assumes anyone cares about his life beyond stopping long enough to point, laugh, and ponder what the purpose of it is.

Herzig is already well-known for being a misogynist, making sexualized comments about little boys, stating that little girls who play with dolls understand that they have a baby because they had sex, fighting for pedophiles' rights, and harassing users who post about their relatives' suicides with links to his blog.

The exquisitely written 200 page tome is summarized by Herzig himself at the link above, and details the struggles he faced when he lied and told other fans that he was a teenage girl and how they reacted when they found out he was actually a 40-year-old man. He also references his poorly developed, rather stunted social skills.

In a blog post detailing important notes about the book's release (including information about how you - yes, you! - can win a signed copy of this masterpiece), Kamichan explains that he has spent the past six months living on Paypal donations from teenage girls in developing countries. Assuming this to be true (and one ought never assume), it becomes evident that the rumors about Herzig's lack of education (and, therefore, inability to secure meaningful employment or turn off his computer) are indeed well-founded. He also asks his loyal fans to please, please, suggest his book as reading material to their local meat cutters.

We wait with bated breath to see what the future holds for this middle-aged ingenue - the Caldecott?!

V6′s Inohara, Kanjani8′s Yokoyama, and NEWS’ Tegoshi Forms New Unit for Knorr CM

Last Sept 19th, V6‘s Inohara Yoshihiko, Kanjani8′s Yokoyama Yu, and NEWS’ Tegoshi Yuya attended the presscon for the new Knorr’s cup soup. It was also announced that the three have formed a new unit to be called “TRIO DE tsukehita“.

The latest Johnny’s trio will surely brighten your day as they deliver “oishii” (delicious), “tanoshii“(fun), and “genki” (healthy) soup to your tables.

The “TRIO DE tsukehita” makes a parody and sang classic musics, such as: The Drifter‘s “Ii yu da na”, The Spider‘s “ban.ban.ban”, and Ueki Hitoshi‘s “Sudara Bushi”. The three sang this famous classics as if they are performing them live.

During the shoot, the three were requested to just act “natural” so they were just naturally eating,
drinking, and conversing as the shooting finished. Inohara revealed
that Yokoyama got a barrage of NG scenes during the shoot while Tegoshi
playfully calls Inohara “InoPan” (Ino bread). Inohara joked that it might as well be the title of a new show.

Before the press conference, invited journalist were asked to taste
and vote as to which Knorr soup variant is their favorite. Yokoyama won
by a slim margin with “spinach DE noon bread” from Inohara’s “potage
dressed with cheese and spinach”.

Knorr soup CM will air this Sept 22nd.

Here is a news report:


Lots of new units huh?
Mods, I'm quite confused with this new lj update, I can't properly select tags because some of them seems to be missing. Sorry~
