Trailer for Nagayan's new movie!

Check it out! Someone on tumblr posted this YouTube clip of a movie that Nagayan will start in! I think it's called "Gewalt". Surprisingly this movie goes back to the gangster/Yankee theme. Reminds me of "Gachinko Shisso Joto" all over again. You can find Nagayan in the gang that doesn't wear school uniforms in that gray hoodie. That outfit looks just like what he wore in "Shiawase ni Naritai" huh? He isn't the main character sadly, but I hope he has a big role as a supporting character.

Performance Info: Nagayan in New Musical - Sempo!

Musical: Sempo – The Chiune Sugihara Story

Location: New National Theatre, Tokyo

Dates: 9/10 – 9/29

Tickets: 8000円/11000円; on sale 7/10

Cast: 吉川晃司、鈴木ほのか、坂元健児、白羽ゆり、片山陽加・佐藤亜美菜(ダブルキャスト/AKB48)、山本芳樹(Studio Life)Kimeru、和田琢磨、永山たかし, others

Director/Choreographer: Ueshima Yukio

Other Information/Summary: This is a musical based on the true story of Chiune Sugihara. Sugihara was a diplomat who served as Vice-Consul at the Japanese embassy in Lithuania during World War II, and helped an estimated 6000 Jews escape the country by granting them travel visas, a direct violation of his orders from Tokyo. Some estimates indicate that around 40,000 descendants of the Jewish refugees that he helped are alive today because of his efforts. In 1985, he was granted the honor of Righteous Among the Nations by Israel. ‘Sempo’ was the name he asked the refugees to call him by, because it was easier to pronounce.

"Sorao no Sekai" Interview w/ Kimeru Clip

During one of Nagayan's recent stage plays, "Sora no Sekai" was about to open, Nagayan and two other castmates appeared in an interview talk show that is hosted by Kimeru to talk about their play. I can't tell what the show is called, but I found the video on tudou of the interview (unfortunately it's RAW). You can find the clip here.

Make sure to skip to 20:04 to see the "Sorao no Sekai" interview portion!

Capture 01
It is good to see the 1st Eiji and Fuji, my favorite Tenimyu Dream Pair, seeing each other even after their time in Tenimyu ended. I sometimes find pics of Nagayan and Kimeru hanging out for a day once in a while on his blog.

Capture 02
Ah Nagayan and his adorable smile. I think the picture he's holding is a picture of his head (hence the mustache and beard). XD

'Hakase to Taro...' Official Website Open!/ New Video!

Hey all, I have found the link to the official page for the 2013 version of 'Hakase to Taro no Ijona Aijo'.
You'll find it here!

Also, recently I found a youtube video where Nagayan participates in a video series for Fuji TV entitled 'Anatameman' (don't know what that means). The video basically has Nagayan talking to the camera about himself I guess and in the end, he announces and advertises news of the 'Hakase to Taro...' play and 'Tono to Issho' coming out on DVD. But anyways, here's the link to the video! Click here!

"Touch a Dream" Trailer

While I'm still on the hunt for more vids with Nagayan, I found this old trailer of a movie Nagayan starred in 2003. It's called "Yume Oikakete" or in English, "Touch a Dream". From the vid, it's about a blind teacher who's coaching a boys' swimming team with a dream to get their team to reach the Olympics. (Or that's what I think).
The video is not in high quality, so it's kind of hard to see clearly, but if you look carefully, you can spot a young Nagayan among the group of boys.

Watch trailer here!

Also, if you look closely again, you can spot another familiar face along with Nagayan, Kitamura Eiki. Yep, I'm talking about Izuru from Rock Musical Bleach. Also I've read from the cast list that Miura Ryosuke is part of the cast in this movie as well. If you don't know who he is, he's the guy that played Matthew from a drama that also starred Nagayan, Delicious Gakuin, and he's also known as Ankh from Kamen Rider OOO.

I'm crossing my fingers that someday someone will be able to post the full movie online.


"Houkago Groove" Next Appearance!

Don't miss episode 4 of "Houkago Groove" if you want to catch another glimpse of Nagayan, airing 5/13!

(Can you spot him here?)

'History of Japan-Oda Nobunaga' Screencaps

Managed to find a 9 minute video of 'History of Japan' in which shows the history of Oda Nobunaga, and also shows Nagayan. So I took some screencaps so I can post it here. Some of the images aren't quite clear unfortunately so bear with me here.
