Fukuda Mayuko’s (福田麻由子) New Movie

I just found this out on my twitter! Quick translation of the more important parts!

News from Nikkan Sports and Oricon Style.


Fukuda Mayuko will be a movie with fellow FLaMme Hirosue Ryoko.

They leads are Hirosue Ryoko and Inagaki Gorou. They will be playing as husband and wife.

The movie is titled “Sakura, Futatabi no Kanako” (‘Sakura, the second Kanako’, my crude translation). It’s directed by Kurimura Minoru.

“Sakura, Fatatabi no Kanako” is based on a novel by Niitsu Kiyomi, who wrote the “Triangle” novel that became a drama starring Hirosue Ryoko and Eguchi Yosuke.

The movie was filmed in April of this year, and is currently in its editing stage. The movie will be screen on April 6 of next year.

It’s a sad, painful, and human story that give the viewers the will to live on.

Other casts include Fukuda Mayuko, Takada Sho, and Enami Kyoko. Fukuda Mayuko plays the pregnant high school girl. Takada Sho plays the high school boy that Masami likes. Enami Kyoko plays the shop keeper.

Synopsis: Yoko (Hirosue) lost her young daughter, Kanako, in an accident. Blaming herself, she continues to cook for and talk to the no longer existing Kanako. Though her husband, Nobuki (Inagaki), wants to support her, he is also becoming more frustrated. One day, she meet a pregnant high school girl name Masami (Fukuda). Seeing Masami, Yoko instinctively believed that Kanako will be reborn again.



- So Mayuko will be playing a pretty important character, since she’s the third name on the list. I hope it will be interesting.

- It was filmed in April… Wow, they are pretty quiet about it. But I think I like it better, since I don’t have to wait a year to watch the movie. :P

- The synopsis confused me… Is Yoko thinking of getting another baby, adopting Masami’s baby, or see Kanako in Masami? Well… I doubt it’s the last choice.

- This reminded me that a fan on 2ch talked about seeing Mayuko with Hirosue Ryoko and Inagaki Gorou a while back and wondered if it’s a movie. Back then, most people just said she was visiting, but it actually turned out to be a real movie role. Wow… I can’t believe I remember that.
