[Kinki] Yomiuri Y&Y Koichi Sushi Prince interview Translation

堂本 光一さん(スシ王子!)

常に全力を出してきた

「名は体を表す」とは、よく言ったものだ。全身がキラキラ光って見える。

鬼才、堤幸彦監督と組んで5年ぶりに出演した連続ドラマは、髪の毛が激しく逆立ったり、握ったすしがピクピクと動き出したり、奇抜な演出がふんだんに詰まった、独特の世界観を持つ作品だ。

「なかなか言葉では面白さを説明できない。大笑いじゃないけど、ふふっと笑える感じ。でも、演技のリズムや間が少しでも狂うと面白くなくなっちゃうので、難しくもありました」

演じる主人公、米寿司は、全国を旅する中で伝説の職人たちに教えを請い、徐々に腕を上げていく。「このドラマで自分自身が成長したかどうかは、全く分からない。でも、後悔だけはしないよう、常に全力を出してきた」と言う。

今回のドラマはいわば「エピソード0」で、続編が来年春に映画化される。「映画では、司がドラマの時より成長している部分もあるし、そうでない部分もある。だから、司の修業の旅は果てしないんです」

物静かな語り口に、努力を惜しまない姿勢が、にじみ出ていた。

 うーん……。特にないです。

[Rumour] Smap trying to break away from JE and moving to Avex

Rumour has it that Smap record label Victor entertainment is having some financial problems and that Smap is thinking of signing up to Avex.

It’s not really news to us at D2 that Smap want to move away from JE, but’s it’s news to us that they want to move to Avex. It will be interesting to see what will come out of this.

(Summer Snow: Anyway is it just me, but I’m slightly annoyed with the “fast-approaching-middle-age” comment on SMAP on this article. It’s a very tabloid comment and really unnecessary.)

The article below is from Sunday Mainichi (9/2)

 ============================================================

Kumi Koda & Masahiro Nakai getting intimate while SMAP and Avex just flirt

News that Masahiro Nakai is dating pop queen Kumi Koda has also lifted the lid on speculation that the front man of the “fast-approaching-middle-age” boy band SMAP may be looking at some major changes, according to Sunday Mainichi (9/2).

Nakai, 35, has been SMAP’s front man since it first burst onto Japan’s showbiz scene in the early ’90s. But the band is now facing a crisis, as its record label throughout that time, Victor Entertainment, is about to be swallowed up by parent company Victor Japan due to of cash flow problems.

“What all that means is that record companies across the country are fighting to try and get SMAP to sign with them,” a music company’s top boss tells Sunday Mainichi on condition of anonymity. “Giving a few names, there’s the foreign-funded Universal Music, but also powerful Avex; where, of course, Koda is signed up.”

While Nakai and Koda are apparently snuggling up, it looks like their respective record companies may be in the same process.

“Avex has a deal with SMAP’s agency Joy Dream to produce and distribute anime movies,” the boss says. “And Hisahiko Iida, who looked after SMAP at Victor when they were still a group of unknowns, has just been appointed as a director at Avex.”

SMAP is also rumored to be looking to break away from Johnny & Associates, Japan’s most famous talent agency and renowned for its ability to churn out pretty boy bands. But Johnny’s is having plenty of input in who SMAP signs up with, and it’s not really looking in Avex’s direction.

“Julie Fujishima, who’s said to be most likely to take over Johnny & Associates, is often called SMAP’s creator. She doesn’t want SMAP to break off the links it has to Johnny’s, so she’s looking to get the band to sign up with Universal, not Avex,” a music producer says. “SMAP’s members will make the final decision on where the band goes, though.”

Even though the creator may be looking in a different direction, SMAP’s members are definitely gazing in the direction of Avex. Whispers are floating about that Takuya Kimura, the band’s biggest name, is poised to sign up as the star of a movie to celebrate Avex’s 20th anniversary next year. And, of course, there’s the Nakai link to Koda, a performer closely associated with the Avex label.

“All the talk about record companies has come about because of news about Nakai and Koda supposedly being madly in love. I don’t know whether all that stuff is true, but there is no doubt that they are very, very close,” a manager at a foreign-owned music company tells Sunday Mainichi. “SMAP being highly likely to move to a new label is probably what sparked all the stories about the singers’ love lives.” (By Ryann Connell)
