Akina as  倉橋嵐子

Akina’s role in the drama is 倉橋嵐子(Kurahashi Ranko), a previous world-renowned top ballerina, currently running the 倉橋バレエ団( Kurahashi Ballet Group). Has a 12 year old son, who has talents in ballet, however, under 嵐子’s strict ballet teaching, he is unable to enjoy ballet.

Today, 黒木瞳さん was on a TV program, a talkshow for 30 mins where she gets interviewed about her family life and definitely, promotion for the drama. There was a VTR part , where she was at the ballet studio in her pink dance dress practising, but no sight of Akina… =(

Also, at the end of the show, the CM for the drama was shown :

It was a series of shots for each of the cast, as interestingly, like the official website, Akina appeared as the last character. I guess this sequence was intentional, like the website.

プリマダム starts airing on 12th April (Wed), 2200hrs~2254hrs.

1st episode is an extended version till 2309hrs. =)

p.s. in the drama CM, only instrumental music was used…where is Akina new song???….

Akina fanboy since 14. Still undecided which are his top ten favourite Akina tracks as it's mission impossible. Digs "Everlasting Love" a whole lot more than the average Akina fan.

  1. Ranbi –

    As always, thank you for a great report. Keep it coming. ok? I doubt that I will have chance to see the series any time soon in US.

  2. Omigod! Doesn’t Akina look fresh and great in the promotional photo. It seems such an atypical pose of hers, but the TV shot reverted back to the Akina we are more familiar with.

    It’s unfortunate that she wasn’t on TV with Kuroki but maybe she is practising her ballet and concert at the same time. Anyway, she looks really happy which shines through in the photo and good makeup artists make a difference too.

  3. i love the first shot of her as well! =) very kawaii and retro at the same time. =) i quite like the character premise they’ve given her.

    btw, i took ballet classes when i was little! haha! if they did this eons ago, i could have acted as Akina’s son! LOL.

  4. Beautiful!

    A very familiar pose of Akina. hehe.

    I’m so excited and happy that she is releasing a new drama!

    Ganbatte, Akina-san!

  5. from i read from the synopsis, I dun expect a lot of ballet dance scenes from Akina…as she was supposed to have already retired from the dance scene in the show…more on 黒木瞳 that I think…but anyway, look forward to more promotion these 2 weeks…

  6. What a revelation, Danny! Was it the pink tutu that did it for you?

    Let me say that the closest I got to one was to don it so that I could imitate Seiko singing "Tenshi no Wink" on a mock Best 10 that we enacted for a friend’s 40th birthday present. Ironically, it belonged to my friend’s Pommie husband, speaking of which "Did you know that more heterosexuals appear in dresses than homosexuals in their lifetime?" Well, just a little statistic that I tabulated. Especially Pommies! LOL!
