Kono Koe wo Kimi ni - Characters  
There's quite a few characters so I thought this should probably have it's own post as it might get a bit long. For now I've only translated the profiles for Tottsu (of course!) and the main two characters, but I'll get around to the others eventually. If there's any that anyone really wants to know about before that, let me know~.

Honami Takashi (Takenouchi Yutaka) / 穂波孝 (竹野内豊)
He has an interest in mathematics, and confines himself to his own world in order to hide from the eyes of his strict father. He had no luck with girls in his student life, although he has dating experience he has been told "your voice is nice however your stories are totally uninteresting". Currently, he is an associate professor specialising in knot theory. As a consequence of his difficulties expressing emotion, and him lacking in something called hospitality, the constantly empty seats in his lectures stand out.

Ezaki Kyoko (Aso Kumiko) / 江崎京子 (麻生久美子)
A lecturer. Only Sakura-sensei knows what happened in her past. She always appears to be smiling, but inside she's a pessimistic realist. She has a fear of love, and despises this age of love for love's sake.

Takashi's Family & Friends )

People of the Recitation Class '灯火親' )

[N/B] I'm not 100% sure of some of the character's names (yet), since the kanji can have different readings.

家入レオ - 心のカ・タ・チ  

Thanks to watching few recent dramas with Fukushi Sota I found out about Ieiri Leo and her music.
Every song it's just so beautiful and her voice too!
I really like her presence on the stage and how she moves. Her lives sound just like studio songs!

I know nothing about bearbricks...  
I immediately bought these guys when I accidentally found them on eBay though.

Oriental Radio !! They're a fun Japanese comedian duo. You might have heard of them as RADIOFISH with "Perfect Human". Apparently Yoshimoto Kogyo did a collaboration with Medicom to bring some comedian-themed bearbrick figures. I wasn't sure how to display them but then I realized the bears had clamps for hands so I did it this way for now. I need something more stable/permanent though.

I started reading a guide about bearbricks but I hope I don't collect more, although there is a set with One Punch Man characters now...

I kinda tried to parody their 'valiant story' gag while working on displaying this

Valiant story, a valiant story!
She spent some time arranging the case.
But without any tape it'll topple with haste.
Valiant story, a valiant story!

It's not funny unless I dance too, I think.

Shabekuri 007 w/ heisei Nobushi Kobushi liveblog  
I watched Heisei Nobushi Kobushi guest on Shabekuri007 on 2011.05.11 on a whim 'cause Neuk linked it to me. I tweeted while watching it. 

This doesn't count as a translation but I might want to brush it up one day. It's a mess and doesn't make sense altogether like this though.

Kono Koe wo Kimi ni - Masterpost  
Another Tottsu drama means time for another masterpost \o/ He's not a lead role this time though... but I will translate any info about his character, as well as things like episode summaries to provide context (maybe I'll sub it... but that depends on just how big a part he actually plays, and whether it's actually interesting xD;)

Most information comes from the drama's homepage, I might potentially add articles or tidbits from the twitter @nhk_dramas later. Depends on if there's anything interesting/relevant ^^

First, some basic info. The drama's title is Kono Koe wo Kimi ni (この声をきみに, NHK has translated this as "My voice for you"). It will be airing on NHK at 10pm Fridays, starting 8th 15th September. There will be 8 episodes in total.

NOTE: There could be spoilers, especially in the episode summaries.

From Oomori Mika[1], the scriptwriter of serial TV drama "Asa ga Kita", which achieved this century's highest drama viewship rating (Kanto average), comes a long-awaited original work of fine quality adult entertainment. The stage she has chosen for this love story is a recitation classrom. Whilst recitation classrooms have an image of being "old-fashioned", they've been reevaluated as a place of healing where you open your heart by speaking aloud, and are a secret boom amongst youth too. Through voice interaction, the main character piles up lessons of "love" and "life" with the female teacher, and together with the individual students, a cute, romantic image of their growth is painted.

[1]: Just as an aside, Oomori Mika also wrote the skits (コント) included on ABC-Z's Twinkle Twinkle A.B.C-Z DVD!

(This post is Untitled)  
 Konnichiwa minna-san!

Just to give a sooper big update for our beloved Arashi:

It was announced this morning that Arashi will be releasing their 16th studio album, and that's not an error. The album's name is really [untitled]. For the first time (I think so, xDD), they will be provide tracks that will be sung by units from the group. I wonder what are the names and who will be the members of the units.. So exciting!!!

The lead track is entitled Mikan (未完), meaning unfinished or incomplete, not the orange one. There will be a PV and its Making, as usual. There will be a 10-minute long song among the tracks. And it will also include the three singles: Power of the Paradise, I'll be there and Tsunagu. And as a common feature, it will be released in two versions: Limited (13 tracks) and Regular (18 tracks) editions.

And the release date is on October 18, 2017


Seriously. I can't wait for this o(≧∇≦o)! It was like, I just thinking about when they are going to announce a new single or album earlier this morning and now this news?! OHMYGANTZ! I'M FLYING ALL OVER THE MOON o(*>ω<*)o! I didn't even cared if I will get late to class (I got late, but then again, my professor is much later~), I just kept on tweeting how awesome the announcement was! Arashi really knows how to make me sooper dooper happy o(^∀^*)o!! 

According also on the news, their concert is entitled "Sweet Paradise"!!! I really wish I could come and see my boys perform live T_T... But that's totally beyond my reach ಥ_ಥ... Why, Johnny-san?!

Jaa! Enjoy! Can't wait for this album, NarratageSaki ni Umareta Dake no Boku and Last Recipe ~Kirin no Shita no Kioku~

Hi!! It is finally September!!
I'm getting more busy as my national anesthesiology exam is fast approaching.. so I keep studying.
So I post much slower now for my arashi food trip compilations

This episode's dishes were soba udon -> definitely one of my faves and I plan to do a food trip on these if I visit Japan soon this year! Well maybe I will just select which ones I wanna try. This episode had the female cast of Nishikido Ryo's ongoing drama now.

All these were featured in Arashi ni Shiyagare episode that aired last August 5, 2016
