Ayapan jealous of Kitagawa and Horikita relationship?



Horikita Maki and Kitagawa Yuujin will play the leading roles in the upcoming dorama "Innocent Love" as you all know. Everything seems to go smoothly, but there is still one thing and one person that seems to be highly concerned.

"Ayapan came~," a young person told the producer.
Some of you might know that "Ayapan" is the nickname of Fuji TV announcer Takashima Aya, Kitagawa's real current girlfriend. She appeared at the location without any appointment.

"Whether it's from behind of of a telephone or through some bushes, there seems to be a reproachful peeping tom. Now we know it's her and care too much about it anymore," the producer commented.

The questions here is why Ayapan feels the urge to be a peeping tom on location. From official side we only hear that "she often goes to watch" without any more information. "She's suspicious of the relationship Horikita and Kitagawa's and goes there to observe the situation," insiders told us. "Horikita is his senior when it comes to acting and so she volunteers to guide him at work. When Ayapan heard about this she became extremely jealous."

In fact, Horikita is a big fan of Yuzu as well. "She even got into their fan club. They pretend it to be practice, but she uses it to get autographs and to be close to him. From the outside she seems to be quite fluttering," the insider added.

Innocent Love Press conference (incl. Clip)

On the 2nd the cast of Innocent Love appeared at a press conference in Tokyo to officially announce the upcoming getsu9 dorama of Fuji TV.

The parents of the woman Horikita is going to play got killed when she was still very young and while she tries to keep on living positively she falls in love with the composer Junya played by Kitagawa Yuujin of the popular duo Yuzu. "I'm happy to be able to play such a big role on my turning point," Homaki who will become 20 on the 6th said delighted.



For Kitagawa it will be his drama debut and you could see an awkward feeling on face during the press conference when he came out with the rest of the wonderful cast, such as Kashii Yuu or Narimiya Hiroki. "I've been doing nothing but music for the past 11 years, so I'm feeling out of place here. So many cameras, it's really a getsu 9 dorama," he commented with a bitter smile. Usually he prefers it simple, only wearing jeans and a T-shirt when doing music, but today he transformed into a "mechaike", an incredibly good-looking man in a black slender suit. Kitagawa also mentioned that he had to go back and take piano lessons for adults to accomplish his role. Also a funny side-note he revealed, "While practicing my lines at home, my mom came to me confused and asked 'What?'"

The event itself will be limited to only 1000 people and each person can only buy one PB.

The photographer of the PB was ND CHOW, a native Singapore born photographer who already worked for several major fashion magazines in Japan and worldwide. In his career he also worked for major companies and artists such as Hamasaki Ayumi, Ozawa Seiji, Amuro Namie and many many more.
The PB will contain 112 pages in a luxury binding and will be sold for 2940 yen.

It was already mentioned that Maki put a lot of thoughts and meanings into this testimonial-like, sensational photo book.
"Since I became 20, there was nothing I wanted to do. Nothing changed like everyone said. I just felt like seeing my SOUL. I was surprised that it's so stimulating (SADISTIC), so unexpected STRAIGHT and perhaps a part of me that should be kept a SECRET... Horikita Maki"

A black pantsuit, a deep crimson coat, 3 kind of wigs, a wedding dress.. It's not just a work full of such fashionable styling, but also one with a lot of extreme sexual and emotional photographs. She completely throw of her former image and so challenged herself to become an adult woman with this photo book, that it without a doubt will become the biggest topic of this year.

There is not the slightest doubt that this photo book is going to be a must-buy for anyone who calls him/herself a fan of Horikita Maki.

Horikita Maki's agency searching for fresh talents



Today the monthly magazine "DeView" went on sale with Horikita Maki on the front cover and an announcement of her agency searching for fresh talents through auditions.

The agency's biggest talent Horikita Maki already made herself a name as an actress. In a survey of the magazine the readers describe her as "having the power to attract people with her acting," "having lovable straight (honest) eyes", "looking pretty with her short hair," "being able to play any role without problems" and "having a elegant atmosphere." When asked about her 20th birthday that's only about a week away, she comments surprisingly calm that, "It's approaching more casually than I thought," although it's a major checkpoint in her life and career of becoming a full-fledged actress.

Of course Sweet Power has a lot of more young talents among their lines. Next to Horikita Maki they have Uchiyama Rina, Kuroki Meisa, Minamisawa Nao, Sakuraba Nanami and Sawaki Ruka to name some of their big shots in the 10 to 20 age category.

Since its release in March 2001, Utada's album "Distance" sold 5.48 million copies worldwide.

Today it's been announced that Utada Hikaru's song "Eternally" will be used as the theme song for Innocent Love.
The track actually is from Utada's 2nd album "Distance" and for why the producer decided to use it, he explained: "The melody, the lyrics and the title are what greatly inspired me to create the image for this dorama." This alone was enough reason for him to want this song for Innocent Love.
However, they will use a newly created mix of that song, now titled "Eternally -Drama Mix-" even with some new vocals rearranged in a studio in London. There are plans for a digital release via Chaku-Uta, but at the present point there is no word about a possible CD release.

"Maki's first interpretation"

She was allowed to write an interpretation about the book called "Yoshinokita Koukou Tosho Iinkai" (Yoshino Northern High School Book Committee)!!
Yamamoto Nagisa received the "Special Chief Editor Award" in the 3rd "Da Vinchi Literary Prize" for his work.

It brings back the young and vivacious feeling of your high school years.
You have to read it!
Note: I assume the interpretation will be in the "DaVinchi" magazine that's coming out in October, but I might be wrong.

A notification for a program that's going to air at 02am on October 10th!

You could say that she had extracurricular lessons together with 10 children and created a lot of summer memories.
They drained fine white noodles, climbed a gorge and all in all had a lot of fun together in the nature.
Maybe it's way to say goodbye to her teen days...?

Sweet Power Mobile - Blogs, Pics and more

Horikita Maki's agency "Sweet Power" announced today that their new site called "Sweet Power Mobile" would open on Tuesday, September 16th (for docomo at least). Apart from being able to get exclusive pics from your stars, you'll also be able to read their own private blogs and even get personal birthday messages from your favorite actress. Horikita about the new site, "There'll be a blog and lots of other content. You have to check it out."
Here is the site: http://www.sweetpowermobile.jp/

A wake-up message from Horikita Maki, a smile of Kuroki Meisa as standby screen or clips from Uchiyama Rina as email, Sweet Power is really going to offer an incredible experience for fans who have a mobile phone. For September there will even be signed autographs of Horikita Maki send to a total of 10 lucky winners in the present corner.

Those who'll be a member for more than 3 months will be able to use the benefits of the VIP corner. In that premium section you can get more special treats next to the blogs, pictures, clips, voice messages of all kinds and special gifts available for regular members. Features known for that section so far are rare off-shoot pictures and real personal decorated and handwritten emails able for download. It's a sheer amount of variation that's probably going to get more and more content in the near future. However, all in all it's just another reason for us who don't live in Japan to be envious about those who are able to use this service. Anyway, for those who want to know, the monthly fee for regular members will probably be around 300 yen ($2.8 / €1.9), but that's only a guess judging from similar offers from other agencies.

Kitagawa Yuujin and other cast members of "Innocent Love" revealed

Today finally the the other cast members of the cast of Maki's new dorama "Innocent Love" have been revealed. The biggest surprise would be the male leading part, because Kitagawa Yuujin (31) from the popular folk song duo "Yuzu" will be in charge of that one. This would be his first ever role in a dorama and already as the lead actor at the side of popular Horikita Maki. However, Kitagawa isn't a totally new actor as he has been doing some acting in movies like "Meitentei Hokenshitsu no Obasan" or "All-Night Long 3: Last Chapter" before his actual breakthrough with the folk duo Yuzu in 1998. "I was really surprised. It's a new challenge and I'll work hard with all my might," he commented with a lot of ambition. "I think Horikita Maki is a wonderful actress, whether it's in movies or doramas and I'm very happy to be able to act together with her. I'm slightly older than her, but when it comes to acting she is my senpai. Please take care of me."



The theme for Innocent Love is about "modern loneliness" and the heroine Kanon (Maki) who got neglected by the world around her. Kanon is trying to find happiness in this modern Cinderella story. Kitagawa will play Nagasaki Junya she is wholeheartedly falling in love with. His role is not an easy one. He is a pianist for a church's children choir who seems to have a cheerful naiveté from the outside, but in the inside he holds a deep sadness.



Other cast members include Kashii Yuu (21) who is going to play the role of Sakurai Midzuki, a childhood friend of Junya who has feelings for him since they were young. She'll be like the "first villain" who's going to bully Horikita's character.

Fukushi Seiji (25) will be Kanon's older brother Akiyama Youji who got in juvenile prison as suspect for the murder of their parents. He is worrying about his sister and her loneliness, but he suffers due to the fact that he can't go outside these walls.

Segawa Subaru, a very close friend of Junya will be played by Narimiya Hiroki (25) who's in charge of bringing a fresh and modern feeling to that show. He himself struggles with the problem that he can't tell anybody his feelings, not about his worries about his new assignment and neither his feelings towards the person who loves him.

Shining actress Uchida Yuki (32) will play Kiyoka, the fiancé of Junya. She will be an important key role for the dorama.

According to the producer there is a reason behind every casted actor/actress. "I wanted to appoint him (Kitagawa) for a dorama before already, but this time I finally made the request. If the dorama can reflect the charm that comes out from his inside, then I think there will be a great chemical reaction. He hasn't yet shown anything to the general audience, so please take note of him."
About Kashii Yuu, "I wanted an actress who could play such an ugly character in the inside that you wouldn't be able to tell from her elegant face. It's the first bullying role and I thoroughly wanted to portray it."
"Fukushi-san showed his talent on NHK and I thought he would be the right person for that character with a lot of darkness inside of him. That's why I made him the offer. It will be fun changing him from an handsome man into a man with close-cropped hair."
And then Narimiya, "His role is really delicate with a shock-like secret he is keeping to himself. I think you will be attracted by how great he performs that difficult role."
Uchida will be in charge of the beautiful girl, but as much as she is beautiful as much can she fight and strife for something

Stepwagon, the mini van from Honda now reached a total of 1million domestic sales. The car first debuted in 1996 and since then three different models saw the light. Its popularity spread from families to car enthusiasts, not only in Japan.



This achievement was celebrated with an event on the 21th in Tokyo's "Caretta Shiodome" on which a new CM for the Stepwagon with the actress Horikita Maki, who also attended the memorial event was announced. She tells us a bit about the CM.



It's the first time for me doing a car CM, so my heart was throbbing really fast. The image of a simple family in this CM is very warmly and I'd be happy, if everyone could feel the gratitude of that family everyone would want to have in this Stepwagon CM." In the CM itself she personifies the car. "Hey, Stepwagon-kun. 1million families must have been hard, right?" After those words it starts to show all the families hugging each other.



Maki's final thoughts on the message of the CM: "When you are small you often get hugged by your family. When you get hugged you somehow feel relieved and happy. My family is the most important thing for me. Please see it with your precious family by all means."

Maki then gets asked whether there is somebody she would want to hug. "I have a younger sister I met after a long time and she's so unbelievable cute. She is the one I would want to hug." Concerning from whom she'd want to get hugged from. "Somebody I really like and who is important to me. I don't just mean the opposite sex, but also family or friends."

The new CM will start to air from the 22nd.
