Ryoma-Den :: Some pictures, posters & the concept behind the official poster

0 comments Post a Comment
There is an interview with Masha at the NHK official site. Love the site, looks very nice and well organised but the interview, well there's bound to be a translation somewhere. Meanwhile, I took the following pictures from the site itself, namely this and this. Series is starting every Sunday 9pm (Japan time) on NHK Channel on 03.01.2010. Do catch it! Anyway the following are thumbnails so do click on them for larger sized picture. Click Read More link for the pictures!

Nice one.

The teaser poster
which you've probably seen before

The official poster

With the end of Tenchijin, the publicity for Ryoma-den can finally begin. First the trailer, now the Official Poster. The one revealed in August was simply a promotional poster for Ryoma to be the next "Face of NHK". The one disclosed today is the real Poster for the drama.

The appeal of this poster lies in the (impressive) ability of Fukuyama-san to reproduce the look (eyes / expresssion) of Sakamoto Ryoma. What is Ryoma the visionary thinking about?

"To make waves, to stir up wind" (written on the poster)

Refined and subtle, Fukuyama-san's expression brings out the strong will of Ryoma, with the clouds in the background and the wind in his hair adding further to the dramatic effect. Fukuyama-san was relaxed and natural at the photoshoot and it was finished in less time than scheduled. Doesn't Fukuyama-san's expression tell you something? How he is worried about the future of Japan, how he dreams of a better future, it all flows out so naturally......

Where do you think this poster was taken? In Katsurahama (Kochi), Nagasaki or on a was in Shibuya. To be exact, it was on the rooftop helicopter pad of the NHK Broadcasting Tower facing the skyscrapers of Shinjuku. This helicopter pad has been used occassionally for TV filming.

The posters will be distributed to all NHK offices around the country from today onwards, to be displayed at the lobby of all TV stations by this weekend. It is also displayed starting today at the entrance of Studio Park and within, as well as the outside Harajuku JR station.

My favourite from the interview pictures

Sometimes I receive some media files or stuff about Masha that can't be publicly shared, but I can however share privately, such as concert clips, etc. I would love to share whatever I got with you, as a way of disseminating information of Masha to the masses. You probably have all that stuff if you're an experienced fan, but if you are new to Masha or does not know other experienced fans, you probably won't have most of what I can send to you. I don't send emails often, since frankly I don't get such stuff often but when I do, I will send the link if I am allowed to do so. So do join my contact list but be reminded, you're not allowed to repost/redistribute/reupload whatever I send you whether in whole or in part. Anyone interested, redirect them to my blog and ask them to join my contact list. But this is only open to those who will answer the questions in the form below accurately. If you're successful, you will receive quite a few emails since I group all links together into categorised documents. If you're not, I will email and inform why (probably answered some wrongly, such as title not in Romaji or wrong answer). Once you found the answer, please RESUBMIT THE FORM. If you did not receive my emails (whether the many materials or rejection email) within 3 days of joining, please do resend your request. Thanks for joining!
