Meanwhile, Time Keepers subs episodes 2, 4, 6, 7 & 8 have been re-uploaded. Thanks soooo much to Olive for sending me all of the files! (*´꒳`*) I’ve re-encoded them to smaller mp4s so they are kept within 200mb. Hope MF won’t delete my files again~

Have a great Christmas, minasan! ⋆ᗰદ૨૨ʏ⋆ᐠ₍⁽˚⑅̆˚⁾₎ᐟ⋆ᘓમ૨ıડτന੨ડ⋆

We’re back~

I’ve moved the site over to a new server, renewed the hosting plan for another year, and here we are with a new look… for Christmas! I’ll try to add more content to the site when I have more time on hand. Meanwhile, here’s a quick summary of the major events in the coming months:

  • 31 Dec 2013: Johnnys Countdown @ Tokyo Dome
  • 9 Jan – 6 Mar 2014: “Nezumi, Edo wo Hashiru” NHK drama!
  • 10 Jan 2014: “HAMU” Drama SP on air!
  • 6 – 30 Mar 2014: Takizawa Kabuki @ Hakata-za, Fukuoka
  • Apr – May 2014: Takizawa Enbujo @ Shimbashi Enbujo, Tokyo

I might have also missed out this tidbit earlier…but Takki will be singing the insert song for the Drama SP “HAMU”, and the title of the song is “あなただけに今歌うこの詩” (this song that I sing now only for you). Tanoshimi!!

Takizawa Hideaki in Fuji TV Friday Prestige New Year Special Project ‘HAMU’

Last month, we posted a couple of pictures of Takki being spotted filming a drama in Tokyo. Now there’s finally an official announcement!

Takki will be starring in a special drama called “Hamu – A Man of the Security Police Force”, and it will be the first drama scheduled to be aired as a part of FujiTV’s “Friday Prestige” New Year Special in January 2014. The last time Takki starred in a FujiTV Friday Prestige drama was a year ago, in the special drama “Akutou”.

In this drama, Takki plays the role of Lieutenant Natsuhara Shinji (32), who works for a special unit within the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department Public Security Bureau. His unit calls themselves “Hamu” which may seem odd at first since it literally means ham in Japanese. But it actually comes from the kanji “公” in “公安” (public security). The top part of “公” is ハ (ha) and the bottom part is ム (mu)… thus, ハム (hamu).

Hamu works as a behind-the-scenes police force, so to speak, shutting down terrorist operations, assassinations, and other serious crimes before they happen to avoid causing disturbance within Japan. They closely monitor dangerous criminals, gather information about terrorist organizations, and take full-force yet discrete action when they sense suspicious activity. With such a huge responsibility on their shoulders, they must stay undercover and even allow criminals to get away with certain things so that the overall progress of their undercover operation isn’t jeopardized.

This is a police drama that is said to be full of speed and overwhelming suspense. At the press conference, Takki said it’s his first time taking on a role of a police detective and believes he’ll be able to show another side of himself through this drama. He has always wanted to take on action scenes, so in a way, being a part of this production was a wish come true for him. This drama will make the audience question “what’s is justice to you?” and with such a superb and fitting cast, he believes they’ll be able to convey a sense of power and strength to their viewers.
