It was announced today that Takki’s co-stars in “Mayonaka no Panya-san” will be Kiriyama Akito (from B.A.D, 23 yrs old) and Tsuchiya Tao (female actress, 17 yrs old). This will be the first time Kiriyama has co-starred with Takki.
Updated 8th January 2013: The Takizawa Kabuki 2012 DVD will be released on the 20th February! It’s been ‘postponed indefinitely’ for a while now and we were getting a little frustrated with the wait, but finally the new release date has been confirmed on J-net today! Moreover, pictures of the pouches for Tackey shop have been posted as well.
Finally! Takizawa Kabuki 2012, staged from April to May earlier this year, will be released on DVD
on 14th November! There are 2 versions and actually, both are must-buys to me. Like previous DVDs, they place the Family Show in LE, and Making in RE. VERY tough to choose only one! Based on DVD footage alone, I’d go for RE coz Documentary wins lol~ BUT there’s a booklet in LE, plus the cover for LE is sooooo nice!!!!!
滝沢歌舞伎2012 DVD Limited Edition
List price: 8,800yen
Pre-order @ CDJapan | Amazon | HMV | Tower
*Comes with 52-page booklet
Disc 1: Act 1 (approx. 90mins)
Disc 2: Act 2 (approx. 80mins)
Disc 3: Family Version show in May 2012 (approx. 90mins)
There will be a freebie (pouch – same design but different color for each edition) when you buy at Tackey shop. You’ll get the PINK pouch with the Limited Edition DVD, and the RED pouch with the Regular Edition DVD.
Hmm… I like the pink pouch yo… but the 26% discount on Amazon is a bit too hard to resist… I think I’ll give up the pouches so I can get both versions. I NEED that documentary, but I don’t wanna miss out on the family show, the cover & that booklet!
Mich stayed up late and I woke up early to catch the premiere… but lemme tell you, I cannot complain about the lack of sleep because it was totally worth it!!
I’ve been so excited for this and by the end of the first episode, it felt like the 30 minutes just flew by and it left me hoping that next Monday could come faster!
This is really a fangirl’s dream come true ne~ Not only do we get to see Takki in a fresh new environment outside of Japan, we also get a taste of what it’d be like to actually travel with him… day and night. But I think what intrigues me the most is being able to see the “rawness” and vulnerability ne~
One of the things I liked most about this episode was that we finally got to hear Takki speak a lot of English and Spanish!! “I want to go Lima… Strong car…Super strong car! Gracias!” I cannot tell you how times I squealed in delight over his adorable broken Engrish. As for his Spanish… I only know a tiny bit, so it didn’t make sense to me anyway, but somehow, it only sounded like he was speaking some kind of Japanese gibberish? *LOL* For those of you who can speak it, let us know what you think of Takki’s Spanish!
When it was time for him to choose a car, he picked the Jeep. Yappari ne~ kakkoii dakara ne. Takki also decided to name it… “Ouji” XD For a second, I thought he was going to come up with something that started with “Hide” hahaha~ But “Ouji” makes sense! Even when he’s tired, jet-lagged and half way around the world, he still manages to look like a prince and make even young Chilean girls blush! LOL Sasuga Ouji!
Anyway, we tried to record it, but due to a shaky connection, the video froze and we had to restart. This is why there are some missing parts and two separate files. We haven’t edited the videos either, so the commercials and some unnecessary parts remain in the videos. But as we’re waiting for the HD to be released, this is the best we’ve got, so hope you guys enjoy! ^^
There’s a rumor on Twitter that the Takizawa Kabuki DVD will be released on February 20th. Don’t know how legitimate this is… but let’s hope it’s true. I don’t know how much longer I can wait…
Iya~ gomen nasai! We didn’t manage to catch the WS this morning… but I’m sure someone must’ve recorded them, so hopefully, it’ll be on Youku or Tudou soon!
Most of the newspaper articles mentioned how generous Takki was in giving otoshidama to all 180 of his kouhais who are in Takki to Tomo ni.
Yomiuri, however, used a different headline to catch the attention of its readers… The title was “He can do as he please – says Johnny Kitagawa regarding Takki’s marriage”.
I almost fell off my chair in shock when I read this at first, but IT’S OKAY, IT’S A FALSE ALARM. Takki is not getting married! At least not now… *phew*
