Tegoshi has a little brother I don't know about?

So I just started watching the first episode of Aijou Ippon staring Matsura Aya. While the first episode made me cringed with Matsura's cutesy acts, it also caused a few delightful surprises as well.

It's true that this drama was shot during Ayaya's cute stage, and I have to admit, she's very cute in the drama. But all she does (during the first episode) was pouting and trying to look cute. Now I truly understand why people keep saying about Sayumi's "ichiban kawaii" being annoying. As for her acting skill, or lacks of, pretty self-explanatory. :x Maybe the rest will be better. I don't want to be harsh but I found most of H!P members' acting skills are definitely lacking, maybe with the exception of Nagazawa Yuko, and kinda Goto Maki and Abe Natsumi. But whenever they started "trying" to acts, I found them really unnatural. Even Yossie , who is great during the Hello! Morning theater, became horrible at her little drama special (the one where she switch body with a guy). Well, maybe she gotten a little better now since that drama was shot a few years ago, but you really can't tell now. H!P seriously need to have more girls with talent in this department! Then maybe they can conquer the drama world instead of letting JE stepping all over them. But some of the new Johnny's are horrible actors too! UF* should think a little about it and start training talents.

I was also surprised that Ito Atsushi (Densha Otoko star) is also in this drama playing the Ayaya's sempai! =_=;; While I have no problem with the guy acting, as his character fits him quite well, but I wished they used a younger guy. Ito-san just doesn't look anything like a highschool senior. UF* are probably afraid Ayaya's going to have some sort of scandal. lol. Another surprised, Saeko is in this drama as Ayaya's friend. :D Not much developments from the first episode, so I'm looking forward to see more of her later.The third surprise is Tegoshi Yuya's look alike (which I also refered him as chibi Tegoshi). First of all, this kid is absolutely adorable. And secondly, I was shocked at how closely he resembled Tegoshi (NEWS member). XD;; The first time he appeared on screen, I really thought it was a younger Tegoshi himself. But then, after remembering that Ayaya's and Tegoshi's ages are quite close, well, my theory quickly got disintegrated. I think he is probably the few reasons that I'd decided not to delete the rest of Aijou Ippon's episodes off my harddrive (the other one is the appearance of Takahashi Ai and Kamei Eri in episode 7). I wondered what's his name is. He looks very familiar so I wondered if I'd seen him in another drama before. Maybe Wonderful Life? Hmm..

Konno Asami Back?!

According to Hello! Online, Konno Asami will participate in the new Gatas Brilhantes H.P. single along with other Gatas members Yoshizawa, Ishikawa, Satoda, Korenaga, Mano, Noto, Sawada, Sengoku, and Mutou. She will also will appears in H!P summer concert tour in July and will continue to play futsal with Gatas.

I'm sure many fans will be excited to hear this piece of news, but I, on the other hand, just grateful that it's not another dun dun dun scandal. While it's not bad news, it's not necessarily good either. For me, Konno Asami is definitely the few/many at the bottom of the list, and since she's graduated, I don't feel the need to "care" about her life. Whenever I think of her concert, all I could remember was how angry I was at UFA for ruin Ogawa Makoto's own graduation (I wouldn't really call it a graduation though). So this post is pretty much meaningless. lol.

Not that I care about Gatas anyways as the only person I like from the list is Yoshizawa Hitomi. And I don't even know who half of the rest are. I'm happy for Yossie because she isn't going to fade in the background yet like most of the predecessors. So that's awsome news for Yossie.

I thought Konkon want to concentrate on her studies? I wondered if the summer concert tour is just going to be for summer. But then, don't Japanese only have like 3 weeks of summer of something since they have their school year round. I wondered how she would be able to balance her school work and going on tour around the country at the same time? I know Konkon is a smart lady, and I'm sure she'll be able to manage, but I thought she was really weak-willed. Why go back to show business when she want to concentrate on studying? It's one of those thing that you can have either one or the other, not both.

Maa, if Kitagawa Keiko can do it, maybe Konkon can do it too. I kinda have doubts. If she fails in school, I would laugh.

Updating on the last post about Miki.

I'm glad she resign, even though she has an awesome voice.
1. UFA gave her a way out and she just totally made them eat their words. Good for Miki but still stupid and quite amusing. lol
2. She herself said on Sanma's radio show earlier that they, as morning musume, cannot date, and looks what happen now. I don't like people who lied like that. I lied as well, but the differences is that people world wide don't care and look up to me.
3. I don't like how she doesn't even seem remorseful, but oh well.. good riddance. Just kidding. At least she's still in GAM.

I'm glad Aichan hate guys at the moment, or else she'll be the next to be on Friday, in an article not about her newest pb.
