The full title of the website I got the above picture is "Japan Newspaper Publishers and Editors Association Yon Poison! | HAPPYNEWS | Masaharu Fukuyama Interview! ! I [HAPPY]" or as Izumisano translated it as "Nihon Shinbun Kyodai* “Yondoku!” 「よんどく!」 HAPPY NEWS (2010.04.06)". I can't understand Japanese but Google Translator did a decent job so it is readable. One interesting para if I got it right says Masha's mother often sends him newspaper clippings about Sakamoto Ryoma! I really don't think it is the other way around although the sentences sounds like that. But I am not expert. The entire article is on the subject of newspaper. Do have a read. I will post the translated version (a proper one of course) if I do find any. I like the picture though even if his puffy eyes is covered in foundation. But the expression is like a bit stunned sort of look don't you think?

I suppose the following is the original publication, that is the newspaper version. Taken from HK Fans Discussion Forums.

Thanks to Izumisano, overworked probably but thank heavens for her as well as the kind souls first translating the original Japanese article to Chinese! The translation below was taken from Masha Heart which you can read in full. Here I am reposting some of my favourite excerpt. Do go to Masha Heart to read the article in full!!
There were old men who’d do their morning exercises on the doorstep as they wait for the papers. And when I hand it over, I’d hear lots of “You’re late!” (laugh) Although it was just a local Nagasaki paper, I would never have imagined then that there would be a day when I’d be able to take up a whole page on the newspaper I was delivering.

Yes, she’s (his mother) very energetic. Sometimes, she’d send me the newspaper cuttings that she’s made. She still thinks it’s a great “honour” whenever the papers talk about me. Not just reports on me, but any news related to Sakamoto Ryoma as well! It makes me very happy.

Well, my father passed away when I was in High School, but I do remember seeing him spreading open the paper to read, say, on the tatami and then cutting his toe nails on it after he’s finished. (laugh) It’s incredible the number of ways newspapers can be used after you finish reading them. (laugh)

The good thing about newspapers is that it’s suitable across all generations and age groups. If we cut down the size, we might not be able to use it to wrap up the breakables when we move house. (laugh)

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!
