my first post in this forum, i really like her after watching orange days and right now i'm watching galileo.
i read here that she dated tsumaboki satoshi and then eventually broke up. maybe that's the reason why the filming for dororo 2 haven't started yet. i mean, there should be news about it if they are filming it already right? they said the release date would be around 2009 but it's already dec 2010 and we don't know if they are still gonna do the sequel or not.
anyhow, she's gonna be part of a new detective drama for spring 2011, can't wait!

He has expanded his career since then, even providing music for the Gainax-produced anime series gPanty & Stocking with Garterbelt.h
galaxias! is described as having an electro sound, blending rock and dance music. The three artists were working on the album over the past few months, even while Shibasaki was in London for the filming of the g47 Roninh movie.
The new group is said to not be temporary, but at this point there are no definite plans for how long the group will continue.
Shibasaki Koufs 6th album, gLyricalWonderg, will be released on December 12.
This will be Shibasakifs first original album since releasing gCIRCLE CYCLEh about a year and 7 months ago. It features a total of 13 tracks including her previously released singles, gANOTHER:WORLDg, gMy Perfect Blueg, and gYuku Yuku wag.

Kou Shibasaki to play Nohime in FujiTV Fall drama "Nobunaga Concerto"
Shibasaki Kou will be playing the role of Nohime, Oda Nobunaga's wife in the upcoming FujiTV autumn drama "Nobunaga Concerto" which begins its run from 13 October in the Mondays 9pm timeslot. The drama will feature Oguri Shun in two roles as Oda and Saburo, a senior high school student in the modern era who goes back into time and gets mistaken for the real Oda. This will mark Shibasaki's first heroine role in a Gekku drama since 2007's "Galileo". Although Shibasaki and Oguri had appeared in the 2010 drama SP "Wagaie no Rekishi - First Night", their characters had no interaction with each other so this drama will be considered their first collaboration.
Kou Shibasaki to take on first drama leading role in 2015 NTV Winter drama
Shibasaki Kou will be taking on her first leading role in a drama series through the upcoming NTV Winter 2015 drama "Marumaru Tsuma" (XX-Wife) which begins its run from January 2015 in the Wednesdays 10pm timeslot. She will play the role of a mysterious wife supporting her husband played by Higashiyama Noriyuki who is a newscaster and the scriptwriter of this drama will be Yukawa Kazuhiko who was behind the success of hit drama "Kaseifu no Mita" in 2011.
Shibasaki's character Hikari is the wife of Yasuda Masazumi (Higashiyama) who is a popular newscaster and goes all out to support her husband in every way. She is great at household chores and is able to make her husband look good in front of others. However, there is a secret between them thus explaining why the title doesn't explain what kind of wife she is and that will be explained in the first episode. Filming for the entire drama had been completed.
Shibasaki commented in an interview that her roles so far had been more focused on the emotional side of things but this time, she had to deal with a huge volume of lines so it was a fresh challenge for her. Besides, there was a constant struggle between emotions and common sense in the story which made it a tough battle up till filming was completed. Despite the fact that Shibasaki has been the lead in many movies to date, this is surprisingly her first leading role in a drama series. However, she has never thought much about this because she doesn't think of movies and dramas as totally separate things. It was also great this time that she got lots of support from the people around her and it was good that they didn't have to film as the drama is airing so it took off a fair bit of the pressure. As for her first time playing a housewife, Shibasaki admitted that she was looking forward to becoming a housewife one day when she was young but she doesn't feel the same way now.

On August 25, NHK announced that actress Shibasaki Kou will star in the 2017 Taiga drama 'Onna Joushu Naotora'. This will be her first lead role in a NHK drama.
Shibasaki commented, "This is the first time I've heard about Naotora. From now on, I want to search for her appeal, and grasp it. I am delighted to be offered the role of a person who is both elegant and strong. I believe that it will be a wonderful work filled with spirit, as well as lessons that would become hints for the present day. I will do my best in order to do that."
During the Sengoku Period, there was a woman who ruled as lord of her clan. Her name was Ii Naotora. After every battle, the head of the Ii family would be killed, which eventually left Naotora in charge. The upcoming Taiga drama will portray the drastic events in Naotora's lifetime.
On choosing Shibasaki for the lead role, production supervisor Okamoto Yukie said, "She is an unusual actress who possesses both the strength and beauty of a tiger. I believe she will cause an excitement through the Taiga drama."
The script will be written by Morishita Yoshiko, who also wrote the script for 'Gouchisousan'.
'Onna Joushu Naotora' will begin its broadcast in January of 2017 and will run for a one-year period. Filming is scheduled to start in August of 2016.
