Fukuda Mayuko (福田麻由子): “Kyou no Oshioto.” 2 & FLARE updates

Fukuda Mayuko’s blog from FLaMme mobile.


“Kyou no Oshioto” recently updated with the second entry on February 12, 2014. Summary is taken from mamayu-land BBS. The entry is written while on the plane back from France.


Title: From a Bit Far Away

She talked about her thoughts on the recent screening of her movie in France.

“At this location, I felt strongly of wanting to return to the movie once again.”

Mayuko also written about her eagerness on returning of Tokyo.

“You can eat soba, udon, and even natto, that’s Tokyo for you.”

She laughed at herself for feeling sentimental about natto.



The premiere for “FLARE” wasn’t able to be seen live on USTREAM due to technical difficulties, but FLaMmeject upload a short snippet of the stage greetings.

“The other day, we weren’t able to show the live broadcast of the movie premiere on Ustream. To everyone that were looking forward to it, we appologize for making you worry. m(_ _)m

This is a short movie of the greeting from Fukuda Mayuko’s manager that will be shown to the public first!

In the future, the complete version will be distribute, so please wait a bit more.”


I have a feeling that they will put it on FLaMme mobile rather than youtube… So it may be difficult to watch the full version. Maybe I’ve just been so disappointed about FLaMme these days that I’m being negative about it… I do hope I’m wrong.



Also, thanks to Mamayu-land BBS for the excerpt of her talk.

Fukuda Mayuko: Since this is the first time I got a chance to work with the staffs from abroad, since the director keep using English to talk at the filming set, there are a lot of times where I didn’t really know what’s going on. But because of that, when I watch the film, it felt really fresh.



Luckily for us, FLARE – le film on facebook is being awesome and quickly posted the pictures from the premiere as well as Mayuko’s short trip in France. Please be sure to check them out.

They also added on their status about the premiere:

"A huge thank you to all those who were present at the meeting of last night! Thank you to so many who traveled from faraway to see Flare. A small photo album has been put online today. The reviews on the film are very good, the Japanese team is very happy, so thank you again ... The film will be released in Japan in late April!"



Last but not least, forever thanks Kantsuki-san for uploading the theme song for Flare. Please check my previous entry for the lyrics, or you can just go straight to for the lyrics. It’s a bit hard to understand without the lyrics in front of you.

Not sure if my embed will show up for you, since I always have troubles with embedding videos from Chinese providers. Please click on the link if it doesn’t work.

Fukuda Mayuko (福田麻由子) : Flare Updates

Happy February!!!

We have some new/not so new “Flare” news.


Recently, “Flare” started its own Facebook page, FLARE – le film.

It’s made by the French team, thus is catered to Frenchmen, so the site is mainly in (you guess it) French. But it’s just facebook and thus pretty simple to navigate.

They have a few scenes from the movie as well as pictures of the behind the scene as well, so please be sure to like it.


One of the event that was created named “Projection en France” talked about the premiere of the movie in France.

“FLARE will have its world premiere in Lyon, in Pathé Cordeliers, in the presence of two actors Fukuda Mayuko and Valentin Bonhomme, who came specially from Japan, and cinematographer Robin Entreinger.”

So for those that are able to, the premiere is on February 6th (only a few days from now!), please be sure to go. Fukuda Mayuko will be there as well.

I hope there will be press, or at least the event will be covered on Facebook.


Flare’s webpage recently has a major update, with a new header, USTREAM video (currently not on air), more information about the movie, and the date for the Japanese theater release!

The movie will be release for Japanese audiences on April 26 (Sat).

It’s also R15+, which means the contents will be a bit more mature than Mayuko’s usual movies.

Hopefully the USTREAM video will be updated with Flare’s trailers/bts/interviews!

Lastly, Fukuda Mayuko’s name is huge in the cast list!!! So for the first time, she is the main character of this movie!!! \(T∇T)/ She’s no longer somebody’s support cast or costar!!!

It’s seriously a difficult position, but I hope she is up for it. This is also a good chance for us to see if she can carry the show (something not many can do and failed miserably doing it). But if she managed to succeed, then it will definitely open door to many other opportunities. I’m looking forward to the movie and hoping the story, characters, and acting triumphs over doubts that I have up until now!
