Ryoma-Den : Season 2 - The appearance of O'ryo

0 comments Post a Comment


I have been waiting for the eventual appearance of the woman who would be Ryoma's wife and today there's the news or rather photocall featuring the actress Maki Yoko playing O'ryo. Frankly I couldn't recognise her. In fact I almost couldn't recognise Masha with the white dust on their hair and ragged clothes, minimal make up, I thought why do they look so old? Izumisano of MashaPlus Info Forum explains that "She looks like they put very little make-up on her on purpose, just like all the other actors in Ryomaden, because O'ryo does not come from a rich family (father is doctor, but died) So she looks quite different from what we see normally. ". Truth is those are corn flour apparently. And NHK I suppose with their Taiga series prefers natural look, which convinces me that the actress who plays Sana must be really beautiful in person. Ryoma spoke highly of his wife, also elaborated on her beauty as well as her independent spirit but right now I can't see the beauty part. I find the made up of the actress rather plain and she could stand in a sea of people and I wouldn't be able to point that that's the leading actress of the moment. Maybe she will look or rather her looks will translate differently on screen after the blue/green/sepia tint is applied. Anyway, the pictures, some snippet and real Ryoma letters translated, all after the Read More link.

By the way O'ryo will appear in the 22.05.2010 episode onwards. I have a feeling non-fans of Kao will rejoice.

SNIPPETS
Roughly translated by Izumisano and River, both of MashaPlus Info Forums. I will post more if there is a proper translation.

Apparently Masha is looking forward to honeymoon scene. And he jokingly said that he was disappointed Maki-san was married. Apparently he enjoyed working with her in the CM before (I think it was for Xylish CM? Maki is the nurse?) And Masha wanted to marry his women, when asked if there's a chance an actor from taiga this year will tie the knot.

Did he also say he's looking forward to a possible bath scene together during the honeymoon? And he'd be happy to bare and jump in any number of times that's required?

THE REAL RYOMA WRITING ABOUT THE REAL O'RYO
Read the real letters the real Sakamoto Ryoma wrote home about O'ryo, all in English. Go here and look for letters no. 5 & 6 (just count from the 1st QUOTE you see from the top). Thanks to Izumisano for the links.
