Introducing: Yamada Chihiro

When asked during an interview in Waratte Iitomo!, Yamada Ryosuke (Hey! Say! JUMP) answered that talent agencies are keen on scouting his sisters to join the entertainment world. Yet, they are not interested. But it seems like his older sister, Yamada Chihiro (21), is ready to enter the entertainment business. She first appeared on a magazine and debuted as a model last year. She has also opened her own blog, where there are mostly fashion related posts.  You can check out her blog and more pictures HERE.

Then it was decided that next year, she'll be playing the lead role of an NHK drama titled "Himiko". Details are yet to be announced.

She's also friends with Chinen Yuri's older sister, Chinen Saya, and has posted a picture of their hang out/ meal together yesterday.

Nagase Tomoya & Gouriki Ayame to co-star in autumn 2013 drama "Kurokochi"

TOKIO's Nagase Tomoya and Gouriki Ayame will be working together for the first time in the TBS autumn 2013 drama "Kurokochi" which will begin its run from October in the Fridays 10pm timeslot. The drama which is based on the same-titled manga by Richard Wu and will consist of 10 episodes, features Nagase as Kurokochi Keita, an assistant inspector in the Kanagawa Prefectural Police Criminal Department 2nd section who believes that the true criminal behind the JPY 300m robbery case in December 1968 which had passed its statute of limitations in 1975 is still out there and attempts to find whoever this is. He does not care about resorting to controversial ways to solve his cases including blackmailing politicians and demanding huge amounts of money. With the intelligence he gets, Kurokochi is able to solve many cold cases. On the other hand, Gouriki plays the role of Seike Mashiro, his colleague who's serious about her work and has a sterling record as compared to Kurokochi.
