Fukuda Mayuko and Mizusawa Nako, deepen bonds with squid?

PR event interview for "Mai Mai Miracle" anime from

Actress Fukuda Mayuko (15), who lends her voice for the anime "Mai Mai Miracle" (or "Mai Mai Shinko to Sennen no Mahou", 「マイマイ新子と千年の魔法」) (showing on November 21, director: Katabuchi Sunao). Giving a video broadcast comment and impression at the theater's lobby on the (September) 26th in Tokyo.

Third grader Shinko's (Fukuda) close friend, a valued actress, Mizusawa Nako (15) also participate. "Because I was waiting with Nako-chan (for the recording), it became easy." said the delighted Fukuda. When the topic of Fukuda's fondness for squid came up, Mizusawa confessed, "I like squid tentacles." Fukuda, who called squid as "god", responds with an innocent smile, "People who said they like squid tentacles are not that many, I don't think." Working on the same movie, these two's bonds had deepen.

The wide stretch rural landscape of Yamaguchi, Houfu-shi in 1955 (Showa 30) matched well with the same work, Fukuda said, "The children are looking straight ahead with a cheerful attitude, which give the movie a warm feeling when watch." Mizusawa said, "When my parents was watching it, they were jealous that the characters are able to run around in nature."
If I'm not wrong, Mizusawa Nako was the one who played best friend of Shida Mirai in episode 6 of BOSS with Amami Yuki. Surprisingly, she was also in Kinpachi Sensei, 8th season (also the newest). Speaking of which, I should finish that drama. It's hard when you don't understand 50% of the important things that they say. D:

Also, new trailer for the movie.

Kusumi Koharu to leave for a modelling carreer.

Haven't blog about HP in a long time. ^___^;;

According to the news in Hello!Online, Kusumi Koharu is leaving H!P.

Apparently, she'd been in MM for 4 years and 4 months. Funny, the number four in Japanese and Chinese is taboo for sounding like death.

Truthfully, I'm not a fan of Koharu. After getting various solo works for the anime, to me, she had grown to be quite independent. So I think the change in scenery for Koharu might be good for MM and herself.

As long as she's not singing solo, I'm happy for her. And modeling means to be able to appear in magazine every month (if you have works that is), so not all is lost. So good luck!

I'm curious to see whether her carreer will flop or succeed.
