Shin Godzilla (2016) Japanese movie trailer

Teaser for Japanese movie Shin Godzilla (シン・ゴジラ), in theatres in Japan this summer. The film is co-directed by Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi. It’s the 31st instalment in the Godzilla franchise and the third reboot by Toho Pictures.

The Shin is a play of words which can mean a few things. Officially it’s RESURGENCE in English title, some Asian teasers go with TRUE, social media seems to like it as GOD, while I prefer the simpler NEW instead. It all seems to fit though.

ZARD Forever Best 25th Anniversary Medley

ZARD Forever Best 25th Anniversary medley video. A compilation album in memory of Izumi Sakai, the lead vocal of Japanese pop band Zard who died in 2007.

In memoriam

Izumi Sakai was the only permanent member of Zard until her death. And thus, Zard is synonymous with Sakai. The band has sold over 37 million records to date, making them one of the best-selling music artists of all time in Japan.

Sakai released 42 singles in her lifetime. The extra songs in this compilation are either posthumous release, or songs written by her and performed by other artists.

Some of the clips in this video are quite precious and hardly found online. After all, Zard was most famous in the 1990’s when internet was not a thing yet.

Moe Oshikiri Japanese mascara commercial

Japanese model Moe Oshikiri in a commercial for D.UP mascara. Straight-forward message by making comparison of her “bare” face and her full makeup look.

Veteran model

Oshikiri is best known for her work with fashion magazines AneCan and CanCam. She made her modelling début when she was in high school, about 20 years ago.

Oshikiri is also an experienced emcee and hosted a few TV programs in the past. She also got into writing in recent years and has published a novel and a children’s book. The diversity is probably why she has such a long and successful career.
