Yae no Sakura sounds awesome! I'd love to watch it.
Also, are there any more Nintendo CM's with Haruka-chan?
On December 8, 2012, the Wii U will launch together with New Super Mario Bros. U in Japan, so I hope she'll be in the CM for it. _________________

The gOkiagari-Koboshih dolls were painted by Ayase herself, and she revealed, gI painted them yesterday, and it took a while until 3 ofclock in the morning, but I forgot to paint their hair.h Matsuyama answered happily, but repressing his laughter, gBut, it is only one in the world.h
Matsuyama commented regarding the filming which took a year and 2 months, gAt first, I was so nervous to be the lead actor of the Taiga drama that has a long history. I was too nervous, so it caused me to restrict the range of my acting. It took me a while to get out of there.h Then Ayase who just begin filming in September, agreed him with, gYes. You get stiff when you are nervous. I was just wising that I could relax more, and enjoy the filming.h
As announced previously, the upcoming Taiga drama, gYae no Sakurah will depict the life of Niijima Yae, the wife of Niijima Jo who is the founder of Doshisha University, who strongly lived through that turbulent period.

Haruka Ayase to star in movie "Kodaike no Koibito"
Ayase Haruka will be starring in "Kodaike no Hitobito" (The people in the Kodai family), the real-life movie adaptation of the same-titled manga by Morimoto Kozueko serialised in "Gekkan YOU" at present. The movie which will be shown in cinemas next June, features Ayase as an introvert and ordinary OL named Hirano Kie who is poor with words and has a wild imagination that causes her to fantasize a bit too much. She is dating a successful and good-looking elite named Kodai Mitsumasa played by Saito Takumi who has telepathy powers and is able to see Kie's wild thoughts without her saying them explicitly. Unknown to Kie, almost everyone in Mitsumasa's family has the same power including his younger sister Shigeko played by Mizuhara Kiko, his younger brother Kazumasa played by Mamiya Shotaro and the siblings mother Yuko played by Daichi Mao who is so frank that she doesn't mince her words about thinking that Kie is not suitable for her son. The only family member who did not inherit this power and is poor at observing other people's emotions i.e. the father Shigemasa Junior (more commonly known as Masao) will be played by Ichimura Masachika.
Ayase commented that the biggest similarity between her and Kie is that they both have such a vivid imagination and always have a lot of wild thoughts in their month. As such, she hopes to be able to convey the uniqueness of this comedic love story between a imaginative woman and a man with special powers. On the other hand, Saito said that Mitsumasa is totally different from him and he is such a smart character and excels in many ways but he hopes to show the good and bad sides of a seemingly perfect man through his performance.
The director will be Hijikata Masato who was responsible for works such as "Yo ni mo kimyo na monogatari", "Shomuni", "Nazotoki wa dinner no ato de" and "Ghost Writer" when he was with FujitV while the scriptwriter will be Kaneko Arisa who had written "Nurse no Oshigoto", the movies "Densha Otoko", "Kage hinata ni saku" and "Helter Skelter". The manga's author Morimoto was very pleased to have Ayase and Saito play the leads in the adaptation movie and expressed her wish to see this movie soon.

Aww man, not again. After Hotaru and Kyou wa Kaisha Yasumimasu, surely she should start picking roles other than "ordinary OL who imagines a lot"??? Her Hanae in Kaisha left a very bad taste in my mouth and I couldn't really look at her after that for a bit. _________________
Haruka Ayase to star in new movie "Honnouji Hotel"

As for Tsutsumi, he praised Ayase for being a wonderful actress and with the addition of good actors like Hamada and Kazama Morio, he is confident that the movie will turn out well. Last but not least, Hamada commented that he is honoured to be playing Ranmaru who was said to be a very good-looking man and thinks that people might be disappointed at first to hear that he is playing this character but he will do his best to make his character come alive and impress the viewers.
