RightStuf, will you marry me?

RightStuf re-licensed one of the best shows ever (EVER) in high-def?


*pinches left arm*


*happy dance to Rinbu Revolution*

Oh, and they threw in So-ra-no-Wo-to as a bonus. :-)

In another bit of news, for anyone who's still wondering about the case of the missing Shimako- in the live-action Marimite movie, she'll be played by...*drumroll* Takada Riho! *applause*

Riho is a 15 year old fashion model who has acted in two dramas (Koishite Akuma and Kamen Rider-000) and in the movie Aoi Tori. She'll be 16 on August 16. Hopefully she'll be a good Shimako. :-)
And for anyone who cares (which you kind of should, since he plays a pretty major role in the first Marimite story arc, which I'm guessing- only guessing, since it's a fairly self-contained story- is what the movie will cover), Kashiwagi will be played by Usui Masahiro.

He's 18 years old and a member of the acting group D-Boys. He has acted in two dramas (ChocoMimi and Engine Sentai Go-onger) and three amusingly-titled movies (Engine Sentai Go-onger: Boom Boom! Bang Bang! Gekijou Bang!, Engine Sentai Go-onger vs. Gekiranger, and Samurai Sentai Shinkenger vs. Go-onger: Ginmaku Bang!!). My big question for live-action Kashiwagi is- how much of his gayness will be maintained? (At least a tiny reference?)

So many things to look forward to! XD (Hopefully Utena will come out in early 2011. I love Utena to pieces.)

Shinra said...

Hell yeah!!! Shimako!!! XDDD The only character tat I always forgets her existance XDDD

But She really suits the Role, too bad she not brown haired n blue eyes... XD

Katherine said...

@ Shinra- I actually really like Shimako- which makes it more embarrassing that I didn't notice that she wasn't in those early group photos.... lol

Agreed, Riho looks like she suits the role- hopefully she can act in it. XD
