  3. Mizushima Hiro  [Mei-chan no Shitsuji]

Notes:
Apparently the three ranked are only 3 votes and 6 votes apart (Ohno-san and Mizushima-san were only 3 votes and 6 votes behind Mastuyama-san respectively). The page here described it as an intense battle between the three actors and greatly praised their acting skills. It also mentioned that it was the first time for Mastuyama-san to be awarded (no wonder he kept going on about how he’s honoured by this award in the video) and the fact that Mizushima-san had 26% of all the magazine readers’ votes.

According to this page here, Satou-san had a lot more votes than Toma-kun, but Toma-kun was actually 4th on the panel evaluator’s shortlist. Female voters proclaimed that Satou-san’s acting is “so natural” that their emotions are completely led by him.

A night out with Nakamaru

As is standard practice for those starring in dramas, a little gossip has come out about RESCUE star Nakamaru Yuichi. I can only hope Massu is not far behind.
Shukan Josei has the story.

“I’m having a go-kon with Nakamaru, why don’t you come?” This is how 22 year old college student “K” got invited to a certain October 18th party held at a private dining room in “F” located in Roppongi.

There were 4 girls. When they arrived one of the guys told them to show their student ID cards as they were required to participate. After all that was settled the party got started but sadly Nakamaru wasn’t there.

The guy called Nakamaru who then came right away. His style of dress was onii-kei. All the girls were very happy to see him. As for the guys, it seems Nakamaru was ordering them all around. Apparently, Nakamaru flipped his “Ore-sama” switch before arriving and was a bit on the arrogant side.
lol He has minions.

Four days later Nakamaru called K up and asked her, “You free tonight? Let’s go out for a drink.” She was expecting to meet up with him at a place in Ebisu, but when she got there he was a no show. He didn’t stand her up though. Nakamaru was worried about beeing seen so instead of meeting her, he told over the phone how to get from the station to the bar where he was waiting.

After drinking some “shotguns,” a cocktail of tequila and ginger ale, K was drunk. “I was dizzy and couldn’t even stand up by myself.” She must’ve been pretty out of it ’cause next thing she knew she was surrounded by the neon lights of a hotel district!

Anyway, Nakamaru hasn’t spoken to her since.
Looks like he is of the “hit it and quit it” philosophy.

Nakamaru ~ KAT-TUN Manual Vol.32

From the bottom of my heart to all the J-web readers.

This is me, Nakamaru Yuichi.

For now, the training for life rescue (for my new drama) is done.
Next, I will go to record Utaban show.

Our new song, White X’mas, will be on sale on this 3 Dec.
Have you ordered in advance?
Well, it depends on whether you like it or not.
There is a DVD with the first type which I really want you to watch.

The shooting for my new drama, “RESCUE” which will be on-air January next year, will start soon.
I am pretty excited.

There will be some scene that I have to be in the water too.
I’m thinking about building my muscle.

Well, see you soon.

Yuichi Nakamaru as a main actor for the first time in New Drama Rescue!!!

Nakamaru Yuchi from KAT-TUN who is given the main role at the regular drama for the first time will act Daichi Kitajima(北島大地), who became a fireman because of his experience to be rescued by the rescue rangers in his childhood and is trying to become a ranger of the Special Hyper Rescue with struggling with his trauma.
Takahisa Masuda from NEWS will be Yutaka Tezuka(手塚豊) who is a close friend of Daichi and is also a candidate of the Special Hyper Rescue.
In addition Yusuke Yamamoto, Jun Kaname, Ryo Ishibashi, and Ken Ishiguro will be on it.

Daichi Kitajima(Nakamaru) started his career as a fireman, but because of his past trauma, before being the rescue ranger, he couldn’t get used to the hard work of the fireman and he couldn’t work well at all.
However, the captain of the Special Hyper Rescue noticed on the hidden talent of him….
Suddenly Daichi was chosen to be a trainee of the Special Hyper Rescue.
The gap between the ideal at the human rescue and the reality, the mistakes by his immaturity and the dilemma… through the communication with his fellows such as Yutaka Tezuka(Takahisa Masuda) and the trainers/superiors, Daichi is going to grow up as a rescue ranger, as a human being, and as a man.

This story will be held in Yokohama, and will be divided into 2 parts, ‘Training part’ which shows the youthful days and failure of the young members training hard to be the rangers of the Special hyper Rescue and the love of Daichi, and ‘Rescue part’ showing their work at the actual disaster places and the impression at the human rescue.

With the total help by Yokohama City Safety management Bureau, this drama will move you by showing the passionately burning youth and the importance of life.
The NEW HERO devoting himself into human rescue is born!

Rescue will start on January 9, 2009 on TBS Saturday at 8:00pm

[Translation] Popolo 2008/12 Nakamaru Yuichi

Nakamaru Yuichi
“In my frail awakening of love I couldn’t even speak to the girl I liked.”

-One way unrequited love

During junior high school I’ve always had an unrequited love for a girl. Of course I wished it would become a mutual love but those days I was so shy I couldn’t even speak to the girl I liked. Thus, I regret my points in that. If I had made up my mind that time and had been able to talk to that girl who knows if the result wouldn’t be different now.
But looking back now I think it’s fine the way it happened. That girl made my heart beat very fast when I was in junior high school, thus I can talk about that now.

-Crying aloud in the movie theater

In my case, though I have been moved to tears while watching a movie, such thing hasn’t happened with love. Still, there’s an episode about love with tears included…
In the past I went with the person I liked watching “Titanic”. Because I was unexpectedly touched I cried a lot. I cried so much that was impossible to go eating with her after it. I think that part of me really surprised her; I can’t even remember what we were talking about. That’s how much I cried…
Concerning the result it was a disappointing but it’s still a cute memory, right? Time can find a settlement to all deplorable memories.

Nakamaru ~ KAT-TUN Manual Vol.31

To all J-web readers,
with love from my heart…

This is me,
Nakamaru Yuichi

I am having hamburger for lunch right now.
I seem to have lots of hamburger these days.

“Section of Nakamaru” is almost 300 now.
I am thinking about doing anything about this.
Have you got any good plan?

Let’s check later what plan will be then.

It is getting colder and colder at night.
Please take care of yourself.

So long~
