I SPOKE ENGLISH TO UENOBORI MAKOTO.
....OKAY SO ALL I SAID WAS, "Great job!" AND THEN RETREATED BACK INTO JAPANESE BUT HAAAAAY HE SAID, "Thank you!" SO IT'S ALL GOOOOD 8D
*ahem* I'm sorry :P I just worked up the nerve to attempt to interact in a language I KNOW he must know SOME of, seeing his blog posts, and I'm always worried I'm going to embarrass them or it'll be awkward and sdlifushldfs it was just a lot of fun :D Reminds me of the absolute RUSH it was speaking with Hosogai *___* Next time, I'm definitely going to challenge him some more!
Backtracking a bit... ( More on 'Secret Garden'! )
In other news! So I finally watched the videos for 6th cast on the TeniMyu site and my overall impression was...good! In order of increasing ability to tell how good an actor will be as his character, I'd rank the following: blog image < still IC shot < intro video < actual performance/DVD -- so this was at least a step up from IC shots! Ryoma looks very nice, Tezuka's voice has me preemptively melting in my seat thinking how that's going to sound belting out some tunes, Oishi is interesting but I need to see more, and Kikumaru...well I think I may just be interested again :D
Like I said before, BabyMaru was kind of worrisome, especially since this is supposed to be a character who's close friends with his doubles partner--yet the guy playing said doubles partner is something like eight
years older, and that is not very good for fostering a friendship or even a very mature working relationship :/ You don't have to be
sleeping together like Tuti and Nagayan joined at the hip like T2
just the closest people EVER to pull off a good GP, but it certainly helps to connect on some level, I think. That being said...heeeeehehehehe BABYMARU IS SO GENKI AND HAPPY AND ~*~SHINING GOLDEN PAIR~*~
ABOUT THE WHOLE THING that I can't help but get a little excited myself wondering what he'll bring to the partnership :DDDD Okay hon, you've got my attention!
Everyone else is pretty normal for now--though I was impressed with Momo's confidence XD I'm definitely looking forward to seeing some more from these guys!
