Yay! w00t! Thanks for sharing! ^^

Now I got to look up the time it's showing here on tv.


I watched it tonight on ABC in 16:9. it was interesting. But I would rather see her in Jdramas. It was not the Yuko chan that I like. She did not really speak any English... all her dialogue was subtitled. I recorded most of it and will probably put some of the scenes on YouTube. I'll watch it again and see if the 2nd viewing will change my mind.

Aw, that's too bad.

I've been lurking the FlashForward forums, and alot of american fans like Yuko as Keiko. They said she's smart, accomplished, gorgeous, cool and gutsy Mr Green

IF Yuko continues her captivating performance and she's really, actually going to have an important role here, I have a feeling she'll be popular soon in US.

Me too, but now that she has a son, I doubt very much that she will be a lead actress in another drama. It's so time-consuming and probably doesn't pay as well. She has only done movies since Bara no nai Hanaya.

^__^ I think so too, she's so likeable. I wish we get to see her smile more.

Not a huge fan of FlashForward but after seeing Yuko in an ad for the
episode I had to give it a look.

I thought she did a great job and regardless of any stereotypes you would
be hard pressed to find a better choice to play a character who becomes
the object of a man's obsession. While she isn't my favorite actress, I find
it is impossible to not like her in whatever role she is in. Guess I'll be
watching FlashForwrd now. Also curious about her English skills now that
her character is in the States.

True she might become popular mostly since it is a novelty to have a prominent character on an American TV series that does not speak english (yet). For me I'm too spoiled watching her in Jdramas to appreciate seeing her on American TV which I mostly shun. Maybe in time this new approach will grow on me.

I wonder how many eps Yuko will appear in? Reading spoilers for ep10 and ep11, it doesn't look like she'll appear in both eps. And I hope Bryce-Keiko plot would be more relevant to the main plot, later, and not just a side love story.

Of course, you could just d/l it via BT...


I looked it up, it's showing on Monday 8:30pm here (in Aus) actually.

But yes, I think I am going to download it instead.

How amazing to see the ABC logo, instead of the TBS, Fuji or NHK logos...

Here's a very short sequence to give you a little flavor of the drama. It's right near the beginning so it's not a real spoiler. Watch it quick. Don't know how long before the Youtube police delete it.

I will probably delete it tomorrow. I don't want all my videos thrashed by Yoututbe. That happened to me once before because I posted some American Idol singers.

Thanks Ralph. Smile

Yuko's character seemed a little confused? Or may be I am the confused one. hehe I don't understand why she didn't say anything when the guy spoke Japanese. Is her flash forward the same as Dr Bryce's? Or did she see something different?

I think they had the same Flash. She was in the bathroom when it hit her and that's how the scene ends with her on the bathroom floor after the flash. I did not really watch this, could not get interested. When I get time I'll watch it again. Are you going to watch it on your TV?

Kusanagi, Takeuchi reunite in "Boku to Tsuma no 1778 no Monogatari"
Sat, November 21, 2009 (8:56pm EST)
SMAP member Tsuyoshi Kusanagi (35) and actress Yuko Takeuchi (29) will co-star in a new movie titled "Boku to Tsuma no 1778 no Monogatari." The pair previously acted together in Akihiko Shiota's box office hit "Yomigaeri" in 2003.

"Boku to Tsuma" is based on the real-life story of science fiction writer Taku Mayumura (75) and his wife Setsuko, who died of colon cancer in 2002. Mayumura took the advice of a doctor who said that laughter helps the immune system, and he wrote a short story every day for Setsuko. Initially, she was expected to live for only a year, but she didn't die until five years later, after a total of 1,778 stories.

Kusanagi's character, modeled after Mayumura, is a sci-fi author named Sakutaro Makimura. Takeuchi plays his wife Setsuko. Other characters are played by Shosuke Tanihara, Michiko Kichise, and Ren Osugi.

The movie is being directed by Mamoru Hoshi, whose credits include the television dramas "Boku no Ikiru Michi" and "Boku no Aruku Michi," which both starred Kusanagi. Filming started last month and is scheduled to finish on December 26. Toho plans to have the film screened overseas, including at Cannes in May, with a theatrical release the following winter.

Didn't understand a word but still found it very interesting. I'm always amazed at the tradition of giving the actor a flower bouquet after their last taping. I've never seen that on the set of an American production. It's really a very nice curteous "thank you" to the actor.

I made a translation of the news came out this morning regarding Yuko's future appearance in FlashForward: http://yanie02.livejournal.com/68534.html

Thanks for the translation. Smile Great to read they liked her, although for me, the writing for the show is pretty uninspiring. I was surprised too at the reported 1 episode appearance originally planned, Keiko's story is not tied up at all.
