Takki Tidbits

Hi everyone~ hisashiburi desu~ It’s been a while since our last tidbits post. Both Mich and I have been preoccupied with things that have been going on in our personal lives. But we’re trying to refocus our attention on Takki again because he will be on TV these next two weeks leading up to the premiere of Akutou (which, don’t forget, is November 30th!) ^^

1) Takki will be on “Bokura no Jidai” (Fuji TV) with his Akutou co-star, Kaname Jun, on November 25th at 7 pm. According to a tweet from Kaname-san, they recorded the show yesterday (Nov 18).

2) Takki will be on the 2 hour special of “Nakayoshi Terebi” (Fuji TV) on November 27th at 7 pm. On this show, Takki will be one of the representatives on the “Japanese team” as they have serious (and sometimes heated) debates regarding various issues in today’s Japanese society.

3) The Ishinomori Manga Museum in Ishinomaki was damaged due to the tsunami in 2011. But it finally reopened its doors to the public yesterday (Nov 17) and people who attended the reopening noticed that there were congratulatory flowers sent from Takki! According to this photo from Twitter, he actually sent two flower arrangements. The sign on the right says “To Ishinomori Manga Museum, from Takizawa Hideaki” and the one on the left is actually dedicated to “Sea Jetter Kaito-sama”, the superhero mascot of Ishinomaki City! lol

4) Takki will be featured in the November 24th issue of “Saturday Johnny’s” (an article in Nikkan Sports).

5) On a sadder note… As all of you might already know, the elegant and honorable Mori Mitsuko-san passed away on November 10th. She was 92 years old. Mori-san and Takki had a close relationship and she had always looked after him like he was one of her own… Takki always used to mention how she made him bentos everyday (and they even shared one together) when they shot the movie “Kawa no Nagare no Youni”.

When I heard news of her passing, the first thing that jumped to my mind was “I wonder how Takki is taking the news”. Then coincidentally on November 15th, a comment made by Takki was released by the press. Takki said that when it comes to Mori-san, her cheerfulness, her smile and her kind face is all that he’s ever known, so he still can’t believe (that she’s gone). He also said that he will treasure the days he spent together with her on the stage of Jinsei Kakumei, which ironically, was the last stage show she ever did :( RIP Mori-san. Thank you for everything that you’ve done for our Tono.

Postponement of Takizawa Kabuki 2012 DVD Release

Bad news… As announced on J-net today, the Takizawa Kabuki 2012 DVD release (originally scheduled for 14 Nov) has been postponed indefinitely due to ‘production reasons’. The new release date will be announced as soon as possible, and they apologise for the inconvenience caused to fans who’re looking forward to it.

Takki Tidbits

Four hours ago, someone tweeted about seeing Takki in Ginza! He was in the middle of filming. The person didn’t say what they were filming for, but it’s likely for Akutou!

Takki Tidbits

Fans who attended yesterday’s Sapporo show said that Takki got his hair done! He dyed his hair black and he also cut it short!! His front bangs are to his eyebrows now and fans were saying that this short hairstyle makes him look like a shonen (young boy)! XD I want to see!!

At the beginning of MC time, there was a moment when Takki was alone on stage and he had to do the MC by himself. He started out by saying, “There’s something different about me. Do you guys know what it is?”

He was obviously talking about his hair but you know how he enjoys teasing his audience… After listening to the audience’s response, Takki nodded and said, “That’s right. I got plastic surgery!” LOL!! Everyone ehhhhhh’d him until he let out a cute little laugh and said “I’m joking yo!”

Of course, everyone knew that it was only a joke, but it’s a little bit of a shock to hear the words “seikei” (in Japanese) come out of his mouth. Such a naturally beautiful man does not need plastic surgery ne!

Takki continued to say that he got his hair done for his role in Akutou. It seems like the “crank in” (start of filming) will begin sometime next week and they will be doing a lot of filming throughout October. So hopefully, we’ll come across some eyewitness reports soon!
