Miporin no Ekubo Staff Blog: Week 5

Due to the recent changes in my life, I won't be able to update as much as I want to and my interview translations will lessen considerably. Until I get use to the changes, you'll probably see only 1 (or even no) post per week.

Anyway, week five of "Miporin no Ekubo" Staff Blog.

Remember! "Miporin no Ekubo" is going to air on August 28 (Sat), which is next week. If you're like me and enjoy watching things live, don't miss it. :) Since the airing is soon, I think the blog for "Miporin no Ekubo" is also going to be finishing in the very near future.


Actual Hospital
August 16, 2010


Because the hospital scenes are very important for this drama, we have the priviledge of filming at a real hospital.

We were able to use the real machine and have the actual technician operated it.

Since the original story for this drama is a true story about the fight with brain tumor, we felt that we want to bring the scene about medical treatments as real as possible.

That's why, for the people at the hospital who helped us out, thank you very much.

Because of them, we were able to have a great filming.



Misako-san, Iida-san, All-Up! (all up= finish filming/wrap up)
August 17, 2010


The location at the hospital, Tanaka Misako-san and Iida Kisuke-san are finishing up filming!

Director and Manatsu-chan presented flowers!


While shaking hand with Misako-san, Manatsu-chan's back seems lonely.

Seeing that, Misako-san hugs Manatsu-chan.

Even though the filming period is short, a deep relationship was built, and a very close nit period was experienced together.




The 3 Mother and Daughters Group
August 19, 2010


A scene with just these 3 having a girl talk.

During the filming intervals, you'll often see Hirosue-san, Fukuda-san and Manatsu-chan passed the time together. It's a true feeling of a close family!

The filming will soon end!

Even with just a moment, they'll continue to enjoy passing the time together.



The State of the Audition

August 20, 2010

This time, we'll introduce to you about the circumstances of Kimura Manatsu-chan's audition for Miporin's role!

100 participants was invited from a broad age range, 8 years old to 16 years old girls. The first time, second time, and last audition, the participants need to pass these 3 times by the judge.

Well then, lets looks at the audition's venue!


"I'm Kimura Manatsu!" Manatsu-chan greeted with spirit.

Examine a cheerful scene, she was lively as she acted. For the serious scene, she displayed her intensity in her tears.


Even though her credential of a performer is still not a lot, the staffs all has the same feeling. It was talked about before, but Manatsu-chan looks like the real Miporin! "In order to find a Miporin that's suited for this drama, we must use Manatsu-chan's charm." was the talk among each other, and it was decided that Miporin's role should be given to Manatsu-chan!


"Thank you very much!"
