Fuck yes!! Just got a notice from CD Japan, they now sell Ayaka’s movie Talk to The Dead and it has English subtitles!! Now that’s some amazing news. As soon as I’ve got my Mercury from them, I’ll go and order that one.
DID SOMEONE SAY AYAKA KOMATSU MOVIE WITH SUBTITLES?
Can you do me a favor? When/if you order and watch it, let me know if the quality of the subs is good. I assume if it’s from CD Japan it’s legit, but I’ve been burned before. If it’s good quality, I’ll be sure to order it too. :D
A meet up with Miyuu Sawai and mutual non-senshi friend, Mami Iforgotherlastnamesorry.
With the cast of her direct-to-DVD movie(s) Neon Butterfly.
Backstage at the Neon Butterfly premier event.
Getting ready to watch a concert. Apparently people at Amuse/Ayaka 502 Staff are big fans.
Some other interesting tidbits from the blog:
Ayaka’s going to have another birthday handshaking event July 21, 2013. The event website says something about a 502 Farm (?), and it sounds like Ayaka and company will be taking a bus somewhere. Possibly a farm. I don’t know, I’ll find out
Ayaka went to see one of Keiko’s favorite actresses in a takarazuka play, Sengoku Basara. Ayaka makes a point of saying she’s going to talk to Keiko about it. Yes, these are things I get excited about.
Her movie, Talk to the Dead, has an official release date: August 3, 2013.
She’s started running and training for a marathon - possibly the same one Alisa is going to be running.
She’s going to be releasing a new idol DVD “Hawaaaaaaaaaaii” on September 28. I’m guessing the DVD has something to do with Hawaii, but I’m so distracted by all the a’s that I can’t be positive. :P
She’s been all over the television recently! She guest starred on all the following shows in the past week: “3 Fishing Detectives” (8/27), “London Hearts Special” (8/28), “Hashigoman” (8/30), and … however you want to translate this (9/1).
She’s also going to be appearing in the film, “A New Hope: The Final Daisousen Dance” on 9/7. I think it’s related to the untranslatable (by me) television show from before.
"Sisters of the Musashino Line" finally has a release date! It’ll be coming out November 17, 2012. I still can’t figure out what her role is, but she’s billed fifth on the cast page, so it’s probably not an itty-bitty role. Also, it looks like the film’s getting a limited release, which surprises me given two AKB48 members (or graduates) are in it.
Lots of pics from Ayaka Komatsu’s blog! And I’ve also got some Ayaka Komatsu news!
She’s going to be on the cover of an upcoming issue of “Young Animal,” which will be released July 27th.
She’s going to be appearing in an upcoming episode of a drama, “Three Criminals Fishing” on August 27th.
She’s going to be released YET ANOTHER idol DVD September 28th. When did she find time to do this? No idea.
There’s finally a website for the upcoming film “Sisters of the Musashino Line,” which you can find here. There’s nothing up yet, but I’ll keep my eye on it to see if they ever give a concrete release date or any other details.
Her iPhone and Android app now has an alarm function, where I guess you can have alarms with her voice. It’s sad I find this a wee bit tempting, right?
Fans sent in a bunch of birthday greetings; so feel free to go to her blog to see some really bad photoshop skills.
Looks like they made a special DVD for Miyuu Sawai’s 2011 play “Keep Out!” I can’t find it on Amazon, so it might have been merchandise only available if you went to the play. :/ Anyway, if you look at the fully image, you can see a few shots of her character, which is pretty cool. :D
Ayaka Komatsu has officially blogged about the release of the new Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon boxset, making her the first (I think!) PGSM girl to remark on it’s release.
The box set has been up for presale on her official website for awhile now, and now she’s promoted the release on her blog, because girl knows how to market.
She says the release in part commemorates the 20th anniversary of Sailor Moon, and she’s excited that the live-action show is being “revived” for a box set after a long absence. She also reminisces about dancing for the live performances, and says that she can’t wait to buy it. Do the girls not get free copies? Lame.
Anyway, I’m not sure if any of the others have promoted the new set as of late; if they have, they haven’t been as up front as Ayaka, haha. I’ll probably go through some of their old posts one of these days to see.
Now if only this could get some official English subs, it would make my day….
In addition to celebrationg Ayaka’s birthday, I can announce the release of a new idol DVD! This one was made in conjunction with her photobook, “Ayaka no Zenbu.” It is titled “Ayaka Full,” and I think we can all guess what that is alluding to. ^^; I’ll keep an eye out to see if anyone else gets their hands on this, otherwise… well, the first step is acknowledging I have a problem.
