Tanning is back: "Tsuyome Kuro Gyaru Group" has branched off overseas

'Black Diamond', is a Gyaru Circle for Tsuyome Kuro (dark-skinned) Gyaru on a nationwide scale. They are featured in the October issues of "egg", even "SOUL SISTER" and more. These girls are being showered with attention from everywhere in the media and have begun to expand overseas.

Black Diamond members' English messages: AREINYAN and DEMI

Tsuyome Kuro Gyaru have remarkably decreased in number in recent years, however they are making a comeback all over the country. In July 2012, 'Black Diamond' was formed with hopes of creating another "Tsuyome Kuro Gyaru" boom. This circle has grown into a group with over 100 Kuro Gyaru members in total, from northern Hokkaido, all the way to southern Okinawa, and they aren't only in Japan. To broaden the Japanese Shibuya Gyaru culture overseas, they have established the overseas branch named "black diamond international" worldwide.

Kitamura Kazuki to star as a ruthless killer in the Japanese-Indonesian movie ‘KILLERS’

On September 21st, it was announced that actor Kitamura Kazuki is going to star as a ruthless killer in the upcoming Japanese-Indonesian movie ‘KILLERS‘.

‘KILLERS’ is set in Tokyo and Jakarta, focusing on a group of killers who got to know each other through the Internet. Kitamura is playing one of the Japanese killers named ‘Nomura’. He and his fellow Japanese co-star Takanashi Rin had to perfect their English prior to the filming, since this is going to be the main language used throughout the movie.

Kitamura stated, “This movie is aimed towards a global audience and should not only be anticipated by Japanese moviegoers but also by the people abroad. I can’t wait for it to be completed.

The movie is produced by Chiba Yoshinori (‘Cold Fish’, ‘Koi no Tsumi’) and Gareth Evans (‘The Raid: Redemption’). The directors are the highly praised Mo Brothers (Timothy Tjahjanto and Kimo Stamboel), who made a name for themselves internationally with their splatter fest ‘Macabre‘ (aka ‘Rumah Dara‘).

Filming already began in Tokyo at the end of August and is expected to last until the end of October. Kitamura’s first impression of the script: “To be honest, it depicts a world that is hard to believe and at first I wasn’t able to comprehend what’s going on.

He continued, “When I checked the directors’ profile and their past works, I could see that they have a great talent for creating powerful images. I’m sure that this is going to become a high quality work if it’s them and during our meetings I was also able to understand where they want to go with this movie.”
