3 Maime Bodyguard ~Boku wa Kimi Dake wo Mamorinuku~ Episode 1

I really thought the drama is going to be available via DoCoMo cellphones, so I was surprised when BeeTV begins streaming the first episode on youtube. So weird.

On the other hand, it appears that the 2nd episode can already be watched via cellphone, but not stream as of yet. I hope all of it is going to be available and not just the first episode as a teaser. D:

For those that are interested/curious, here’s the first episode.

Episode 1: A High Paid Part-time Job and the Fateful Encounter

 

- It’s really funny. And I’m amazed to be able to watch so many scenes with Mayuko not being the usual characters she played

- My favorite part is when she did the judo throws at the two men and Nobu, and also the bitch slap scene. X3 Never seen her being so violent. ( ゚Д゚)

- Natsumi came to Yokohama from Hokkaido. At the beginning, it seems like she’s looking for someone/some place. Perhaps this is her “secret”, and we’ll find out the reason in Episode 2: Their Circumstances.

- Hmm, I can’t understand her English the first few times at all. lllorz

- On the other hand, it’s a bit depressing that they always use black men as the purse snatchers. So stereotyped. >__>;;

- Other than that, I enjoyed Matsu’s performance. He’s pretty funny so far.

On other news, Matsu and Mayuko will be appearing in The ROOTLESS’s music video for the song “Elephant”, also the theme song of the drama.

 

From TokyoHive:

It was confirmed on May 31st that EXILE’s MATSU (Matsumoto Toshio) and actress Fukuda Mayuko will appear in a new music video by The ROOTLESS.

The two stars are part of the Bee TV drama, “3-mai-me no bodyguard ~Boku wa kimi dake o mamorinuku~“, and The ROOTLESS song “Elephant” is the show’s theme song.

The show revolves around the character ‘Mishio Nobuo‘, or ‘Nobu‘ (played by MATSU), a man who is irresponsible with money, and who through a sudden turn of events must become the bodyguard of Natsumi (played by Fukuda), the selfish daughter of a rich businessman. The two don’t get along very well, but they begin to open up to each other as they are forced to work together to escape dangerous situations. MATSU is able to prove his skills playing an action hero, and also gets to show off the dance skills he is famous for.

As for the band, The ROOTLESS is made up of members Nobata Shin (vocals), Naitou Duran Haruhisa (guitar), Ihara Takuya (base), and Otsubo Yusuke (drums). The rock band made their major debut on October 20, 2010 with the release of the single, “One day“. The single gained media attention and reached #3 on the Oricon weekly single charts.

The upcoming music video features both action and dance scenes from the drama, as well as behind-the-scenes footage of the actors. You will also be able to see some behind-the-scenes footage of MATSU and fellow EXILE member AKIRA, who also appears in the drama.

The music video for “Elephant” will be released on June 1, but the single release date is yet to be determined.

The music video is released on June 1, which is today (or yesterday in Japan), so I’m trying to find the music video for it. When someone upload it, I’ll post. I, obviously, like behind the scenes stuffs. You can see a little of it in the drama, though not a lot.

On other news, there’s now a fuckyeahfukudamayuko page on tumblr. If you have tumblr, be sure to follow. (゚∀゚)

It’s not run by me, so thanks eien-no-tsuki for starting it.

Which reminded me, how did the whole fuckyeah thing started in the first place? And why fuckyeah and not something else?

… Just wondering…  (`ヘ´)

  3. Hi!

    I was so surprised that I saw my Tumblr's blog name here. XD

    You're welcome! I've been a fan of Mayuko and I was wondering how is such a very beautiful and talented actress hasn't got a dedication blog yet, so I made on for her.^^

    About the Fuckyeah thing in tumblr, there is a story behind that title. It was said that they use that title to gain attention from others, and it was the title that others use for their dedication blogs to artists, so that's why I used it. XD

    Do you have any suggestion about other names that can be called for her dedication blog?

    P.S.
    I don't have much time to update the blog for her so I'm asking for your patience (and maybe some help?).

    Thank you! ^^

  4. @Jonah: XD Thanks for the info. I didn't mean it's not just a good name. Just always curious about it. X3

    Just take your time. I hope I didn't put more pressure on you. lol Just do things as you usually doing, and that's fine.

  5. You're welcome ^^

    I also want to ask some permission about putting some of her infos here (like pictures, translated quotes, that blog of hers and interviews)in the dedication blog of mine.

    Don't worry I will always credit. ^^

    (well, it it's really okay. ^^)
