As of August 1, NewS are no longer the poster boys for the Japanese clothing brand, RUSS · K. Poor boys *sheds tear* (I was honestly thisclose to posting a piccie of 山P, Ryo-chan & the rest of the crew in their RUSS · K gear but I couldn’t bring myself to let their faces grace my page… ><; *hugs*)

But *coughs* I’m not really crying as, er, the company have picked up 3 young & fun, pretty pretty looking people.

The new faces?

Ishida Nicole, Kento Kaku &, my (& E.G.‘s) flavour of the (extra long) month, Miura Haruma.

I couldn’t resist myself as I was stalking the RUSS · K website- I fully just have to share these bright, happy snappies (someone get me to a diner now xD):-

Makeover, success! I think these 3 really give the label the fresh, youthful vibe it needs.

Oh, & since self-control is overrated, here is the new official trailer for Kimi ni Todoke the live-action movie:

*drops to knees @0.37s mark* (seriously, this is so wrong.) Yeah yeah it’s all about the star couple but I’m just as excited for the Ryu & Chizu relationship (who said I liked the silent brooding types?? -_-;) The styling is spot on for all the characters from what I can see so far & even alot of the frames are practically identical to the anime. Can. Not. Wait. xDDDDD

And banzai for flumpool singing the theme song for the movie!





Everybody’s Kazehaya-kun

Okay, I’ll admit it. I’ve watched the Kimi ni Todoke anime (based on the manga of the same title written by Shiina Karuho) & I loved it.

There’s this magic about it that transports even the stiffest of adult hearts back to those fondest memories of high school. The trying-to-fit-in / finding-who-you-are awkwardness, the innocence of young friendships, the crushes (yes, plural xP) &, my most missed, the long leisurely walks w/ your mates just talking about… well, nothing in particular (nowadays, it’s like the faster we can get from point A to point B the better- more time for dorama watching lol) That carefreeness- that’s what made the time so unforgettable.

And so, I just totally spazzed out as I came across the trailer for the upcoming live-action movie (I knew this was bound to happen- the movie that is, not the spazzing >_<):

Tabe Mikako seems like a foolproof fit as Kuronuma Sawako. Her look & voice seem perfect. And Miura Haruma, well, funny thing is, as I was watching the anime, I kept picturing this pretty boy’s face as our beloved Kazehaya-kun. So whadduya know, wish granted ^_^

Kimi ni Todoke live action! Movie out in Japan on September 25. Official website HERE <3
