While in the gathering hall, I caught up with Gal Sone and took a photo together ☆ Actually Gal Sone and me are peers (same age). By the way, Nakagawa Shouko also known as Shokotan is also my peer. And Yanagi Koutaro from my D-BOYS is also one (*laugh*)

Good morning ! This is the Shirota Yuu who woke up at 4am for the first time in a long while, but 4 o’clock is dark and cold and I was so sleepy I didn’t know if it was morning or evening (*laugh*) Waking up early makes me feel like I’ll be able to make full use of the day though, so I like that ☆

Erm well then, on to today’s contents (*laugh*)
The agency has a rack where they put up magazines. Recently I’ve been gracing the covers of a few of them, so it’s become ‘Shirota’s Corner’ (*laugh*) If all the magazines that I’ve done up to now are combined, it would cover the lower rack too !

Good morning !

I intended to update the blog yesterday but it got sent to the unsent email column instead (>_<) I wanted to let you know about the broadcast of Gurunai too… sorry ! (*laugh*)
Eh, that quiz the day before yesterday, the answer is D, the lady stylist-san ♪ Those who were not sure about the gender of my manager would waver between A and D but would usually not consider B and C. Because if Yanagi or Kaji had painted some red manicure on, they would’ve pulled out their hands ne (*laugh*)
Thanks for taking part in my good-for-nothing quiz (*laugh*)
Change of topic, I ate a scorpion the day before yesterday (*laugh*) My friend and I went to a Chinese restaurant but actually he asked me to go along because of something he was interested in there. Not only was it the first time I saw a live scorpion, what was incredible was that I even ate it (*laugh*) It didn’t really taste like anything but seems like it’s good for your health !
If you get the chance to eat at a Chinese restaurant, try it at least once ☆
Finally, a photo with the overwhelming presence of Mr Scorpion, please take a look (*laugh*)

Filming on Rookies is taking place everyday. Yesterday, we did a large-scale shooting for the first episode ! Filming took place on a big baseball stadium where more than 300 extras participated. Although it was supposed to take place over 2 days, we managed to finish shooting in one day, thanks to everyone’s fighting spirit ☆
But the sun was was blazing yesterday ne… For someone fair-skinned like me, it was pretty severe. “Here ! There !” while being told what to do, everyone co-operated splendidly. Really, thank you very much !
The photo is of the baseball stadium after filming ended & the blurred faces of Shinjo and the zombie-like Yufune (*laugh*)

In the Rookies drama, Shirota Yuu is Shinjo Kei and Igarashi Shunji, his fellow D-boys member, Yufune Tetsuro.

It’s really late but…

I didn’t do anything for White Day so this is a message to all of you who have always supported me ☆ The handwriting is bad but it comes from the heart !! (*laugh*)
Anyway, it’s not that I’m sick in the photo, only that I just woke up. So please don’t mind it ! (*laugh*)

The message says :-

For always, thank you

My house

This is our home in Spain.
It felt like old times when I went in the entrance, the elevator and all the different parts of the house. But going back in after 12 years, and having grown about 50cm taller, it ended up feeling a little small. I realized that I’ve grown in so many ways (*laugh*)

Tuesday, March 4, 2008

Long time no see~~!

Everyone doing well~~!?(^O^)/ Actually, I went to Spain !!
It’s been 12 years since I went back to my house there, it made me really nostalgic, really glad and somewhat a little sad. Anyway, I was really happy ☆(*laugh*)
From now on, I think I’d write a little about Spain occasionally ♪ Really ! The moment I came back I got back to work on some magazine interviews etc (^O^)
I’m still there now and they gave me a copy of the magazine with my article inside. To commemorate the occasion, I took a photo with it (*laugh*) By the way, the magazine is called Good Come ☆ Please look out for it (^_-)-☆

Eー… it’s the actual location (*laugh*)

This is Shirota Yuu who yesterday, with Yonekura-san and producer-san and others were playing on the sled ♪
Today, just a while back, I’ve safely ‘upped’ The Negotiator. It was really a great role that I managed to come across ☆ Ah, before long, it’s going to be over, at that time I will say it again slowly but first of all what I want to say now is…
Yonekura-san, everyone in the cast and staff members, really, really thank you very much !!! ☆
That’s what I wanted to say. After this, I’m going to the Rookies poster photo-taking session (^O^)/

Friday, February 22, 2008

E~once again from the actual location (*laugh*)

This is what is referred to as the ‘base’☆It’s situated just a little further away from the actual filming location.
From here the recording, sound and lights people do their checks on the monitor. After everyone has checked, then the OK comes ♪
This is from the actual filming spot ! (*laugh*)

Three times at this location (*laugh*)

There is a snowman in front of the ryokan [Japanese inn]. It looked a little stern, so I added a branch in… Umm, it’s wildly fantastic (*laugh*)
This was from the actual spot !

Thursday, February 21, 2008

Eー this is the actual location.

We were filming at this kind of place with such a beautiful scenery.
This is from the actual filming spot ! (*laugh*)

Or rather, the chocolate these days dress really stylishly ne (*laugh*)


I made 「NIKE ID」 shoes ~☆
When it turned out like this, I thought I had made cow-like shoes (*laughs*) My friend said “They probably won’t be sold in the shops huh ?” but they’re still some splendid original shoes (^O^)/
To make shoes that only you yourself wear at least once, just to try it out, how is it ??

Monday, February 11, 2008


I received a little early Valentine chocolate from Yonekura-san ♪ “It’s a ring !” I was saying then “Eeeeeeh !!?” my heart was thumping as I opened it… it was just normal chocolate (*laugh*)… is it… or rather it was chocolate from BVLGARI !? What the heck is that ?? (*laugh*) Too good to be eaten ! But 5 minutes later, it was already in my belly ☆ (*laugh*) I ate it gratefulーly (^_-)-☆
Before going to shoot for The Negotiator today, I went to Rookie’s baseball practice ♪
Although it was fun to meet all the team-mates already, once the practice ended, my muscles were sore (*laugh*)
To mold myself into a Rookies figure, I’ll keep at it ~(^O^)/

Friday, February 8, 2008

Really lovely feeling

Yesterday, from morning, we did the announcement for the D-Boys auditions through magazines and television (^O^)/
On the way, while making an appearance on Kaminuma Emiko-san’s program (Kaiketsu Emi-chan Neru), amongst all the many senpai, I got really nervous. But with Saitou Satoru-san around, who I was with in Sweeney together, the tension was loosened a little (*laugh*)
But everyone was really good at talking (and it was interesting), I felt like I was a guest ~ I kept laughing (*laugh*) It was really fun ☆
Well, in any case, look forward to whoever the new D-Boys new member will be ☆
The photo is me with the delicious Valentine chocolate that I received from Kaminuma-san ☆
