Since I have always enjoyed drawing, I have really gotten into drawing fanarts for "Triple Zone" in 2015.
So far I have been really lucky because all of my fanarts have been displayed.

For TZ #44 which aired in November, I made a fanart for Dai-chan's birthday:






And for TZ #45 which aired in December 2015 I have created a "Dai-chan as Santa" fanart.

Watanabe Daisuke’s Fan Club Birthday Event 2015 – Fan Report, Part 2

The second event was scheduled to begin at four o’clock, but it started with a little delay at around four-ten.

Like at the first talk show the MC entered the stage alone, introduced herself and welcomed us to the event before she finally asked us to call the birthday boy out onto the stage. This time we agreed to use his proper name instead of “Dai-chan” and once the MC had given us the countdown we shouted “Daisuke”. Just like at the first event a few seconds passed during which nothing happened and then Dai-chan appeared from behind the screen that connected the greenroom to the main hall, smiling brightly. He had changed his outfit to tight black jeans, a white shirt that wasn’t tugged in and was wearing a simple vest over it which gave him an elegant, yet young and casual look and I really liked that outfit.

Hello guys,
It took me some time to get this report done, but I have been really busy lately.
December is the busiest time of the year for many companies and these days I'm pretty much working from 9:00AM to 10:00PM six days a week...
However, I finally found some time to finish this fan report and I hope you'll enjoy the read.

Watanabe Daisuke’s Fan Club Birthday Event 2015 – Fan Report, Part 1

On November 6th 2015 Dai-chan turned thirty-three and as in previous years a birthday event exclusively for members of his official fan club only, was held at Shidax Hall in Shibuya, Tokyo on Saturday, November 14th. The event consisted of two separate talk shows and photo sessions and naturally I attended the lunchtime as well as the evening show. The tickets were 7000 yen per event, including a snack as well as a drink. My ticket numbers were E2 for the first and E7 for the second event which didn’t give me much of an idea prior to the start of the first show as to where I would be sitting since at fan club events the fans are always seated at tables and no information regarding the number of tables or their position in the room had been released by the staff prior to the event.

Hello Minna!!!!

Dai-chan's staff announced on his blog today that the Broadway Musical "South Pacific" will return to the stage in 2016!!!!
There'll be twenty performances held, once again nationwide,
from July 3rd - August 11th, 2016.
Six of these performances will be held in Tokyo from July 7th - 9th 2016.

Dai-chan and Fujita Ray will reprise their roles as Lieutenant Joe Cable in a total of ten performances each with Ray getting the 'shonichi (opening)' performance in Saitama, while Dai-chan gets to perform in the 'Tokyo shonichi' and the 'Tokyo senshuuraku (final performance)' as well as in the 'daisenshuuraku (the big final)' in Hokkaido.

I'm really excited about the news and I'm really looking forward to see Dai-chan as Joe Cable again because the musical itself is really good and Dai-chan was absolutely brilliant in his role.

Hello Minna,

today the official press conference for the new musical "1789, Les Amants de la Bastille
/ 1789, Bastille no Koibitotachi" which features Dai-chan in the role of Camille Desmoulins (a lawyer, journalist and politician, also known as "the writer of the revolution") was held in Tokyo today.

The press conference featured a talk show, a presentation of the costumes and some vocal performances by the cast members.

Several news sites have already published articles about the conference as well as pictures.
The costumes of the cast are stunning and Dai-chan looks drop-dead gorgeous in his costume of Camille Desmoulins!!!!!
See for yourselves...



Dai-chan's vocal performance with Furukawa Yuuta as Maximilien de Robespierre and Uehara Ryo as Georges Jacques Danton



The whole cast:





"Theaterclip" also posted a video clip of the press conference on their YouTube Channel:



I'm really looking forward to this production, especially since I have seen the original French version of the musical in Paris, back in 2012.
I'm sure the Japanese version will be just as amazing as the French one and I'm convinced that Dai-chan will be a wonderful Camille Desmoulins.
