Arrietty Guide Book: Kamiki Ryunosuke (神木隆之介) Interview

Scans and Chinese translation from Wind at Kamiki’s baidu page.

 

少年と少女の一週間
A Boy’s and Girl’s One Week
”Karigurashi no Arrietty” Guide Book
 

 

KAMIKI RYUNOSUKE as SHOW

Suffering from illness, a young boy with a hopeless view of the world,

After meeting with a young girl, his sudden change…

Kamiki Ryunosuke talks about this new world.

 

When I’m around 6 years old, my first anime work I challenged was “Spirited Away”. Later, as we start “Howl’s Moving Castle”, once again I got to appear in Ghibli’s work. For me it was a really enormous experience, that if I didn’t included it, it would be hard to define myself (laughs). Even so, when it was decided that I will be in “Karigurashi no Arrietty” this time, meeting an working together again with the same staffs from 10 years ago, I’m very happy.

More over, it appears that director Yonebashi (Hiromasa) was the one that created the character Sho from looking at my calendar picture, I’m very honored. That’s why in regard to voicing Sho, I was able to get motivated quickly.

This time, Sho, the character that I’m performing as, to simply put it, he’s a 12 years old boy who’s doesn’t have any expectation for the future. His way of speaking is slow,  or rather, when I read the scenario, Sho’s characteristics intuitively appeared in my mind. This type of lacking of emotions and flat way of talking, up until now, I have not yet perform with a character this different, it was a lot of challenge.

When that type of Sho meets Arrietty, he experienced various type of feelings and connection, the many shades of colors in his heart begin to blossom…. In order to perform as Sho, I have to take note with my greatest effort in that type of subtle change in his expressions. That type of “change”, I think that is also one of the movie’s highlight.

The characters that appear in this movie are, though not that many, everyone are different types. Dark and light, good and bad, stillness and movement… Each differences are easy to understand, I feel that even in the real world, that type of human characteristics do exist.

It’s my first time voicing together with Shida (Mirai)-san, who played Arrietty. Even though up until the recording day, she was really nervous, but when we begin at the recording site, her performances was able to quickly becoming perfectly like how I’d imagined. Brimming with presence, we completely able to co-act together.

That type of peak in presence is the scene where Sho said “Let’s search together” to Arrietty when her mother’s whereabouts is unknown. The little people and human, meeting even though their differences exist, even their hidden thoughts collide with each others, and even when they are living with misunderstandings… Up until this time, Sho didn’t possess the “strong livelihood”, he give a straight forward line. Even though his word is simple, wanting to help and connect with Arrietty’s serious matter, Sho’s thought is enormously delivered in that line. For me, that’s his turning point. Finding the things that one has but the other doesn’t charming, accepting each others’ differences, removing your prejudices, it’s that kind of scene. This Ghibli work is drawn in such a beautiful way that left a deep impression.

Which reminded me, when I first learn of this story, even though I always thought about the existence of the little people, but for me, I actually really want them to exist. I imagined the little people as living with together with nature. As for us human, we are living while making the best of nature, that subject of coexistence is always there. At the beginning, Sho gave up all connections with things, and living with emotions is definitely not possible for him. But to be accepted, clash, understand, and become happy…. just like that “the shades of the heart that’s contains many things = living”. Sho was able to realized it because of Arrietty, and I also think that because Sho is able to feel that understanding, he was able to do things. To be able to work with such a great work, I’m really happy.

- My kanji vocabulary banks are not very much, that’s why I have to pretty much guess the kanji as I look them up. There are many mistakes, don’t be hesitant to point it out. I should also noted that my Japanese isn’t as good as I want it to be so… please do. >___<;;

- I know I’m not the one scanning it (though I’m also very grateful to the scanner), the markings is a bit annoyance for me because it’s distracting and take away the atmosphere of the picture. >___>;; Well, beggar can’t be chooser. lllorz

 

Sato Takeru: Tsukiko-san

Quick translation from Sato Takeru's ameblo.

Tsukiko-san
November 27, 2010





"Q10" will begins at 9pm!


It was freshly completed at noon today, so I wasn't able to watch it earlier.

Because we're also in the middle of filming, that's why I won't be able to watch it in real time.

Everyone was able to watch it before me. It's a bit vexing.

Please don't spoiled anything.



Well then, I'll do my best with the filming.



Fukuda Mayuko-san is actually a first year high school student.

Isn't she too level headed.

I'm a fan.

Seventeen December 2010: Fukuda Mayuko (福田麻由子) Interview

Text taken from mayukofukuda.seesaa.net.
On page 181 of the monthly magazine “Seventeen”, December issue 2010, there’s an interview with Fukuda Mayuko on her role, Fujino Tsukiko, for the NTV drama “Q10”.


Even though she’s only just 16 years old, she has a grand presence!
The next generation actress with a classical style


- Please tell us the highlights of “Q10”!
Fukuda: I want people to recognized the charms of all the characters’ individual personalities. I played Tsukiko, a mysterious girl that falls in love with Sato Takeru-san’s character, Heita. Even though I don’t resemble Tsukiko’s personality, the feelings that a honest and straight forward person like Heita is nice, I really understand it. In the story, there are a lot of wonderful phrases and scenes. In order to not miss it, please watch it!


- How do you spend your student life?
Fukuda: For afterschool, it’s definitely girls talk with my friends! I think it’s the same for the readers. However, when I receive a book I want to read, I’ll immediately go straight home and be so absorbed in reading it that my friends said “You’re only doing things that you pleased” (laughs). When I have a day without work or school, I won’t take a step outside but just spend the day reading. I’m the completely indoor type.


- Please give a word to “Seventeen” readers.
Fukuda: "Q10” is a drama that high school students are able to sympathize with. Please watch it!


----------------
- Been reading a lot of her recent magazine scans. She’s always talks about reading books. XD;; I wonder if she write stories too. It would be interesting if she become a writer when she grows up, beside from acting, kind of like Mizushima Hiro. Oh, by the way, congrats for winning the 5th Poplar Publishing Grand Prize for Fiction. I really want to read his work. Hopefully, it’ll be translated into English. :)
- Does anyone know where exactly/which magazine the picture comes from? I would like to learn about the source. I got a full version of the picture, but it doesn’t say which magazine it came from…. :< Sometimes, I wish people state their sources.

Audition Dec 2010: Fukuda Mayuko (福田麻由子) Interview

Text from mayukofukuda.seesaa.net.

In the December issue of the monthly magazine, ‘Audition’, 6 pages are dedicated to Fukuda Mayuko from pages 99-104.

 

 

Actress Color (joyu x iro)

#8 Red

Fukuda Mayuko

 

The 8th combination of “actress” and “color” of “joyu x iro” for this time is Fukuda Mayuko-chan, who is appearing in the drama “Q10 (Kyuuto)”.

The chic red, the pop red… The various kind of red in this world, gracefully, lovely, and a bit of an adult…

While showing many different expressions, this is her come back to this magazine after 2 years.

 

- The Life of a High School Student -

     Able to go to the school that I’d selected, I’m enjoying the freedom. I’m experiencing a new life as I sneak away a bit. After school, as my friends and I walk to our station, we would enjoy looking at clothes along the way. And, I’m also reading books, listening to music. I really like SUM 41. Also, Perfume is cute!

As for school works, during junior high, it felt that you do them because you have to, but for high school, with increasingly more interesting subjects, it felt like you study what you like to study. I really love classical literature! In order to be able to read more classical literature, I study diligently. I already know what I’m going to choose when we have to choose between Humanities or Sciences class in our second year, I’ll go straight to Humanities. I think I want to study classical literature and modern literature.

 

- The Drama “Q10” -

     Fujino Tsukiko (character’s name) is a girl who’s a shut-ins for a long time, but some times, you’ll see her aimlessly at school by coincidence, and then before you know it, she vanish… As for myself, I’ve not yet try a mysterious person, that’s why I’m looking forward to it.

When I heard about the drama at first, the heroine of this school drama is a robot… Huh? (laughs). But, it’s a really wonderful script. Because I’m a fan of “Sexy Voice and Robo”, that’s why, just being in the same “Robo team” with Kizara Izumi-san as the script writer and Kawano Hidehiro-san as the producer is really like a dream come true. Up until now, I’d never perform in a warm youth drama before, and to wear a uniform for this school drama, with a role that I can only do now, it made me really happy.

 

- Studies and Drama -

     How do you say it, because both of them exist, that’s why I do my best to do them. It’s not about going to high school in order to graduate, but about having fun while properly experiencing high school life. But, for the school drama this is also something I could only do now… School and also school works, because there are a lot of things I could only do now, I think it would be great if I could go forward while having fun with both.

There’s a period where I’m unable to work in order to study for exams, even when I’m not working, it was still fun. Even though I was having a good time, it’s insufficient. Because I have a lot of things that I “like”, thinking about “doing it” is something I could only do with drama. If I’m not doing drama, it would felt like there’s something “missing”.

 

- Red -

     I love the color red. For the color red, it felt a bit special. The other day I was thinking of wearing a red knit… and then this (on the casual clothes, a stitched red heart), I like things like this. Even though normally, I have a lot of black clothes, with just a red muffler, it’ll become cute.

I really love to unfasten the cover of the book as I use it, for the hard cover, if the cover of the book is red, my heart would flutter. All the books I love pretty much have a red cover.

 

 

- Future -

     What do I want to become in the future, I’ll think about it, but nothing come up. I want to always be able to act in drama, I want to become different kinds of people. There are times where I worried about how to go through with it, but because there are also times where I found it to be interesting, not really knowing how you’re going to become is something I want to enjoy looking forward to.

With that, I’ve never once thought of myself as an “actress”. When I’m an adult performing in a drama, I may consider to call myself as an actress. Because right now I’m performing, and for that I need to do my best…. it doesn’t seems like that way (to become an actress). That’s why, it’s not about what I want to become in the future, but rather, how I should go about living it (laughs).

 

- Self Analysis -

     Perhaps, I like to be by myself. It’s not that I don’t like to be “always together”, but everyone freely doing what they want, when they want to be together, then be together, I like that sort of connection.

Also, I don’t have any vitality (serious)!! When I entered high school, I lost around 5 umbrellas. It was until much later that I noticed, “What have I been doing” I always thought. I don’t see the things around me. Even walking, I would quickly collide into a wall. Because I only see what interest me, I don’t realize it when I passed people, my field of vision is very narrow. Perhaps.

And also, I often feel sleepy (laughs)…. Wait, what was the question?

 

----------

- A proper translation after a long time. As usual, I apologize for any mistakes.

- This is my first time using Windows Live Writer to try to write an entry instead of my usual awesome ScripeFire. ^___^;; We’ll see how this goes.

- Her self analysis make me laughs. A very my pace kind of person.

- Is anyone watching Q10? :D The show is already up to the 5th episode and it’s really interesting. Haha! I’m watching it raw since I’m impatient. >w<;; But Fujino-sama really make the story interesting.

- Love this photo shoot, especially her close up. :)

- Lastly, Fujino-sama and her awesomeness!

“See, easy.” *smirks*

Goseiger Blog: Deepest Impression

Tensou Sentai GoseigerGo! Say! blog.






Hello, this is Chiba.

Goseiger is becoming a site without delay.

Warstar
Yuumajuu
And next to appear are
Matrintis!

Up until now, the battles and the daily lives of everyone from Goseiger are shorten, but not yet half. (I don't get it either!)

Even though I'm not sure how the story is going to progress from now on, I hope to carry Goseiger on with a soft and tender mood.

I want the action to be even more and more challenge, and the saga of the second half to have various attraction.

From now on, please continue to cheer Goseiger on.

Well then, this is Alata.

The picture are with Gosei Girls!





Hello, this is Eri ☆

Goseiger is quickly rushing into the second half.

So fast (>_<)

Goseiger
Up until now, there are a lot of fights, but the one battle that leaves the biggest impression is the battle just recently broadcast.
The story of episode 30's Erumugaimu eating Eri's dream!

Even in a pinch, never give up in reminding each and everyone there about their hopes and dream.
Such Eri is really wonderful (・∀・)

The battle scene with Gosei Knight as the tag team is really cool!!

For me, with this story, I came to love Eri (*^▽^)

And then, the appearance of the new rival, Matrintis.
For the battle with the Matrintis, I think we'll be able to observe more of Gosei Angel, 5 people, growth!

Don't miss it everyone ♪





Hello everyone!!
Playing the role of GoseiBlack, Agri, this is Hamao Kyosuke☆

It's a bit sudden but... How are you??
Are you properly do your best in your studies and work?? (laughs)

Well, with the recent change in season, the weather become hot and then cold, the common cold is getting popular that I'm worried (. .)

As always, I'm drawing my Landick power from the rock and do my best ☆ (laughs)


Looking back at the battles up until now, the one that leave the biggest impression is the "Warstar"!!

Even though they are the first enemy, but Dereputa is of course the most memorial☆

For example, the scene of Alata and Dereputa's fight... and also, the scene where each of us attack individually!
And there are also others that can't be mention, but in any case ♪ Warstar left the deepest impression.

... ... Well, everyone of our enemy all have a strong impression (^^; (laughs)


Our newest enemy, Matrintis, machine monster, appear!
I can't say they are not profound, but they did unthinkable things.
Also! And that impossible person is resurrected...
Fully loaded with highlights ☆


Like Agri, lately, become even more in character, and do normal things with fever is the highlight of this play, small drama, ad lib, and many other challenges.

Please look forward to the broadcast ♪ (laughs)

The picture mail is the close friendships of Gosei Men ♪
See you next time (^^ゞ





It's already the 7th time for this blog♪
This is Moune

Just like that, "Goseiger" is already in its 8th month.
During my free time, I look back from the first episode.

All of the scenes left an impression, however, for me, the scene where Moune first fight with an enemy "Yuzeikusu" left the biggest impression.

For that battle, as an apprentice Gosei Angel, Moune is not yet strong (even though she's still not yet there), the deep bond between the Landick siblings, also my first time at the location by myself, everything was reliably heating up.

Definitely, everyone please think of a scene that left the biggest impression for you.

From now on, I'll brace myself for the filming ♪
Thank you for your supports.

Finally, at the end of October, there will be an event at Tokyo Dome City - Theater G Rosso.
I'll look forward to meeting everyone.

The picture is the messages everyone gave me for my birthday♪






Hello, this is Ono.

It's getting colder each day, how is everyone pass the time?

For me, my activities everyday include filming, but Goseiger is already meeting its later half, the time continues quickly giving a painful and impatience feeling.

Though we are still "Apprentice", and for the drama and also as the heroes who protect the Earth, we are still novice, but there are a lot of challenges I want to try.

I want to meet more and more stronger opponents and do more violent action scenes, from now on I want Goseiger to increasing to a deeper color. (aka leave a deeper impression)

Because I want everyone to remember it as the most magnificent series in the life.

For that, all of us use "Definitely never give up" as our mutual motto.
That's why our teamwork became like friendships.

The unexpected story development is the highlight.
Please look forward to it.

by Hyde.
