I'll play you poker over her. hehe

Anyways, some one should find a great high-res pic of Yuko so we can update her feature artiste pic. I already put a few in the thread, but no one's replied to it... Shameful Cry


What's wrong with her current pic? It looks cute Bleah

@koolaid: When I first saw her I actually thought she looked more like Matsu Takako than Matsushima Nanako. Well maybe a cross breed or something, lol hehe hehe

She's always playing that quiet pure girl role though, I'd like to see her get more crazy because she's a really good actress but barely gets the opportunity to show it. Mainly just because she's always in a drama with a strong lead actor and that's what made her what she is today Big Grin

You can consider buying the specials from amazon japan however there are no subtitles available.

Watched this special.Yuko Takeuchi has few shots only. The special is about Naoe sensei life in Nagano hospital before coming to Tokyo to work.

Article on Takeuchi's latest drama. I kind of had a feeling the drama wasn't going to do too well before it airred. She really lacks a good supporting cast and a male lead like her other successful dramas.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A menagerie of tangled ties
Wm. Penn / Special to The Daily Yomiuri

It is just one of those immutable laws of nature: A choice time slot, a
talented actress and a refreshing new topic for a continuing drama alone are
not enough. To pull in the public, they must be backed up by a believable
plot, memorable dialogue and an attractive cast.

One would think a romantic comedy starring Yuko Takeuchi as a graduate
student in animal behavior studies, which is ambitious enough to include
scenes of London, Isahaya Bay, a Harris hawk and half the population of the
animal world, might have something going for it. But "irritating" is the
adjective that most accurately sums up Fukigen na Jiin (Ill-humored Gene).

I was feeling a little ill-humored myself after an hour watching that
menagerie. If you want entertaining studies in animal behavior, detour
quickly to Pet Daishugo: Pochi Tama (Fridays at 7 p.m. on TV Tokyo, TV
Osaka). You won't be disappointed.

My last major hope for the winter season faded Jan. 17 when Takeuchi
demonstrated she will be fighting an incredible battle trying to keep Fuji's
highly touted Monday night golden hour afloat all by herself. She gives it a
good try, but with the script she is stuck with, she is like a salmon
swimming upstream.

Viewers who can get past the pitiful plot will still have to face a story
littered with animal world puns. Some of these little interludes are
animated for our viewing pleasure and to help the zoologically challenged
get the joke.

The first pun to be tackled is the heroine's name. Yoshiko is her real name
but the Chinese characters also can be read "jinko." Her ex-boyfriend Prof.
Nanbara (Masaaki Uchino) loves to call her the latter, which also is, of
course, a pun on the English word "gene."

Yoshiko (Takeuchi) soured on men after she found Prof. Nanbara, a Japanese
researcher she met and lived with in London when she was an undergraduate,
cheating on her. She tries to understand men by simply applying the laws of
nature (i.e. the male of the species (osu) is driven by a desire to mate
with as many females of the species (mesu) as possible to pass on his gene
line). But, of course, she is only human and rather than accept this
straightforward cynical view, she is bound to invest a lot of emotional
baggage in the mating process.

While in London, she has also casually met Shiroishi (Masaya Kikawada), who
also just happens to be a student of the fictional Hiyodorigoe University.

After the commercial break, the script charges ahead a few years. Yoshiko is
now a graduate student and she again runs into Shiroishi, who is a part-time
teacher in the university-affiliated primary school. Just to make sure all
sides of the triangle are in place, Nanbara shows up for a year as a
visiting lecturer at the university. He is obviously still interested in
linking his gene line with Yoshiko's and he is not bashful about admitting
it. The professor quickly announces to all the researchers in the department
that Jinko is his former girlfriend.

Yoshiko, like one of her trapped insects, doesn't have a clue about how to
get rid of this pest and to make matters worse her Harris hawk takes this
opportunity to fly the coop. The only bright spot is that Shiroishi has
invited her on a "medaka" catching date. She goes off happily tromping
through the pond collecting little fishies for his students only to discover
that they are really destined for the classroom of a beautiful, fashionable
teacher Shiroishi wants to impress. This woman, of course, would never be
caught splashing about in rubber boots herself.

Yoshiko is again disgusted by the male of the species, thanks to these two
unattractive specimens. But wait, is that her Harris hawk circling in the
distance?

Yes, it is. And Prof. Nanbara has climbed up on the roof with Yoshiko, and
they are both squawking and flapping their arms about. They succeed in
getting the attention of the bird (and everyone else on campus). The hawk
zeroes in on them and swoops down for a landing on the professor's arm.

What a pair these zany zoologists make. But watch out! Nanbara is scheduled
to become overpossessive and start exerting control over Yoshiko's cell
phone in Episode 2.

Just where can a script like this possibly go?

Yes, Takeuchi is a salmon swimming upstream all right, and why would viewers
want to join her on that arduous journey? Rating: Just one star fish for
this deserted beach.

Because of her, I'm glued to my set watching 'Lunch No Joou' admiring how natural she is in acting the character. She is cute and good in performing her role. Definitely gonna make all her dramas/movies collectible.

My friend,

I do apologize for not mentioning it earlier. The activation code will be sent to the email that's used during registration. Might have to wait (painfully) for a while, but it's worth it.
