Hi Minna!

On October 10th Dai-chan’s ‘Biohazard’ Talk event took place in Tokyo and naturally I attended it.
I will write a detailed report soon, but there is one incident I would like to share with you because it is a DAIMAO moment.

Dai-chan and the MC were talking about travelling and Dai-chan mentioned that, since 1789, he would like to travel to Paris one day.
After some chatting with the MC about this wish the conversation moved on to other topics. However, later in the talkshow because it was fitting well, the MC made a remark about Dai-chan travelling to Paris.
At that point Dai-chan broke into chuckles and said jokingly: “If I ever go to Paris, I might not return…retire and stay in Paris.”
The MC replied “That would be interesting, but for the present let’s work some more, right?”
Dai-chan said: “Dou kanaa” which means “I guess I should.”
He then fell silent for a moment and added completely out of the blue: “wakaranai desu kedo…mao ga ganbatteru ga-tsu de ne…(I can't be completely sure, but Mao is working hard too.)”
He then raised his gaze to the ceiling and said: “mi agete! (I raise my gaze)”, which, in the context , means “I’m thinking about you”.

At that moment I felt like crying with happiness. I looked at the fan sitting next to me and grinning we exchanged glances that were saying something like “did Dai-chan really just…”

Dai-chan’s remark was really a surprise because in the context of the conversation there was absolutely no need or reason to mention Mao. Dai-chan could have just answered the MC’s question with a simple “yes, I will continue to work hard and to do my best” and could have left it at that, but he didn’t. Instead he felt the need to mention Mao, even if it was just very briefly.

Another interesting detail is contained in the original goods that were on sale, two denim pouches bearing a “D” monogram that was designed by Dai-chan.
Take a good look at that monogram…doesn’t it look suspiciously similar to a certain “D” pendant???

Hi Minna!

Yesterday, after Dai-chan's blog update (Oct 4th, 2016), I couldn't help but squeal with happiness....


Because Dai-chan gave us a DAIMAO moment!!!!!!
And a very big one on top of that!!!!!

Look at the photo below...what is special about it????

The answer is....

I talked to a good number of Japanese fans about it and they all confirm that these pants are definitely the ones that Mao bought for Dai-chan in Malaysia...

Two more intersting details about this photo:
1. The pink box on the dresser...it a tea called "throat coat" from a U.S. company named "traditional medicinals", a brand which is pretty much unkown here in Japan and extremely hard to get...
So where did he get that tea from?
2. Also Dai-chan copies Mao's pose. In one of his old blog entries Mao poses in front of the mirror of a dressing table in a theater in the exact same way Dai-chan does in his selfie from two days ago.

Another intersting little detail:
For two days ONLY, on Sunday and Monday evening (october 2nd and 3rd) to be exact, Dai-chan suddenly finished his blog entries with English greetings, "See you" on Sunday and "Good-by" on Monday (he misspelled 'Good-bye') and then went back to his usual closing line "Oyasumi - Goodnight" in his update on Tuesday night.

In short:
Two days with English greetings on the blog...
showing off wearing Mao's pants in a pose that he "borrowed" from Mao...
throat tea from a U.S. brand that is hardly known here in Japan...
is all that just a simple coincidence???

Personally I find that VERY hard to believe....personally I think it's Dai-chan's way of saying that he and Mao are still as close to each other as ever and that Mao's being abroad during these two years, with only one short homecoming in March 2015, hasn't weakened the bonds between them at all. But of course that is just my opinion and not a proven fact.

What are your thoughts on this matter?

Hi Minna,

Recently TOHO stage has been busy updating their YouTube channel as well as the official "Romeo & Juliette" website with introduction videos of the cast members.
Today it was finally Dai-chan's turn to introduce himself as well as his character "Tybalt" and to talk briefly about the musical production and how he feels about playing Tybalt.

To watch the video just click on the thumbnail below:

If you want more information about the musical and the other cast members, please check out the official website of "Romeo & Juliette":

…and that means….


As it has become tradition over the past few years, we would like to put a smile on Dai-chan’s face on his birthday and show our King how much he is loved and admired outside Japan by putting together a little video with birthday greetings of his international fans.
This year's video will be edited by Eszter Andrea Yang-Kiss
, the wonderful editor who already edited the "10th anniversary fan award" video for Dai-chan as well as Mao’s b-day video 2016, and myself and we hope that many of you will join this project again and make it once more a successful one.

If you'd like to participate here are the details:

1. you can create ONE of the following:
- a photo message (horizontal layout)
- fanart (horizontal layout)
- a video message (1 min. max in English or Japanese)
Fan clubs can submit ONE fan club greeting in addition to the individual greetings of the members.
Example: a fan club of 10 people = 10 individual greetings + 1 fan club greeting

IMPORTANT: This year we would like to try something new and fresh since Dai-chan must be very much used to seeing fanarts and fanart greetings with pictures of himself by now...
so we decided to go for themed greetings...
The theme is “birthday balloons”, meaning that your fanart, photo message or video greeting should have some birthday balloons in them.
Also, we want to try to make Dai-chan feel a little “closer” to us, his fans from outside Japan.
Therefore, please avoid using Dai-chan pictures in your fanart greetings and use pictures of things that are important to you or things you like instead…flowers, the sky, sweets, your pet, your favourite hangout…be creative.

2. As usual any good wishes for Dai-chan's future and birthday greetings are accepted, but please refrain from asking him about Mao since birthday messages aren’t the right occasion to ask about such things.
Remember, it’s Dai-chan’s birthday and our wishes and greetings should focus on him and should make him happy.

3. In addition to your fanart greeting or video message, please send a birthday-themed poster in horizontal layout as well. The poster should contain one sentence about Dai-chan, for example “I love your voice.”, “one thing I like about you is…”, “I think you are…”, “I admire you for…”
I think you get the idea.
Any decorations on the poster that are related to “birthday” (candles, flowers, cake, balloons, confetti etc.) are accepted.
You can either submit the poster itself only or a photo of you holding the poster into the camera (make sure that the sentence is clearly readable if you choose the “holding the poster” option).
And please add your name and country in one corner of the picture as well.

4. Send your B-Day message attached to a short email to the following address: celtic.rose27@gmail.com
- please put "Dai-chan B-Day Project 2016" into the subject line.

5. Deadline: October 25th

6. For any questions please contact me via PM here on LJ or on FB or by sending your question to the email provided above.

Like in previous years the final video will be published on YouTube and since this year the birthday event for the members of Dai-chan’s fan club is going to be held right on Dai-chan’s birthday, I can deliver our Birthday DVD personally to our King.

Hello Minna,

Like he has already done in 2013 Dai-chan will again participate at LIVE FOR LIFE charity concert which will be held on November 3rd 2016 in Tokyo.

"Live for Life" is an organization that was founded after the passing of the artist Minako Honda who lost her battle with leukemia in 2005.
It was her wish to raise funds for helping other cancer victims using music and thus in her memory and in order to honor her commitment to help other cancer victims the idea of "Live for Love" was born and the number of artist performing and the number of people attending the concert and donating money has been rising ever since the first concert.

Several years ago Dai-chan lost one of his closest friends, Mac, to cancer and therefore getting the chance to participate in this concert whenever his work schedule allows it means a lot to him.

Here are the details of this year's concert:

[Date]: November 3, 2016 (Thu) 16:30 Doors open / 17:30 start

[Venue]: COREDO Muromachi Nihonbashi Mitsui Hall

[Performers]: Iyo Matsumoto,
Yu Hayami,
Hiroko Moriguchi
Tomomi Kahala
Keigo Yoshino

Daisuke Watanabe

Masayuki Hirahara
Shigeru Izumiya
...and others...

[Ticket price]: 8,500 yen (tax included)

[Ticket]: Sale starts on September 24th

Hi Minna,

The production of Dai-chan's next big musical with TOHO stage "Romeo & Juliette" in which he will play the role of "Tybalt" has finally started and therefore a press conference was held on Monday, September 5th in Tokyo.

As usual for TOHO productions the press conference consisted of a talk show during which the members of the cast introduced themselves and answered some questions and of a mini concert which featured all members of the main cast giving a sneak peak of some of the songs in which they will be featured.

Due to TOHO being Japan's biggest and most famous production company, the press con received a really good media coverage.
Here are some video clips of the event which were kindly shared on official youtube channels.

1. Digest of the talkshow:

2. Digest of the mini concert:

And last but not least here are some pictures of Dai-chan as "Tybalt":

Hi Minna!

As you might remember Dai-chan performed as "Funkuro" in a historical stage play called Honganji in January and February this year. Unfortunately there was no DVD release for that production...

However, upon request of many people who went to see the stageplay the production company has decided to release a DVD after all. Since there has been a double cast for some roles the DVD comes as a 2-Disc set, so that the entire cast is featured, as well as a 16-page booklet with photos from the production.
At present the DVD is available for purchase only in Japan via the official Honganji website and there is no option for international shipping.

Title: Honganji
Price: 8000 yen

Here is a little teaser for the DVD released by the production company:

If you would like to have some more information on the DVD and other official merchandise, please follow this link to the official Honganji goods store:
