[ARTICLES] Fukuda Yasushi goes back to school!

Translated by River of MashaPlus Info Forums. Original article in Japanese is here.

Actually, Fukuda Yasushi* was a special guest in his old high school, who has an anniversary. So he attended the ceremony and gives talk plus, sharing some behind the scene stories. It seems he was slated to write for NHK morning drama based on the memoirs: Gegege no Nyoubo. Then, somehow, he got roped into writing for the next taiga. During that time, there was a discussion on which figure NHK wanted to put out. They have just finish airing the Warring state taiga and it seems they have three historical figures in discussion. NHK passed the list to Fukuda-san, he only recognised two names Kiyomori Taira (which will be the figure for 2011 taiga) and Himiko. After much discussion, they have decided on Sakamoto Ryoma.

As for the lead, it was Fukuda-san that recommended Fukuyama Masaharu. The offer was given earlier and it took seven months for Fukuyama to accept the role, since he has to think really carefully about this role. It was up to the point that Fukuda-san stated: 'It's him or no lead at all'. The rumour about the role going to KimuTaku? 'completely nonsense'

Fukuda has spent 10 years in theater before moving to drama. According to him, 'I wrote just like a reporter, I report what I see, hear and I interview people. However, I will inject what I actually feel into the drama I wrote, unlike a reporter'. He will be interviewed again in 'Minutes Youth' Magazine.

* Fukuda Yasushi is the scriptwriter of Ryoma-Den (he was also the scriptwriter for Galileo & Suspect X, both also starred Masha)

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!
