Yada Akiko Yada Akiko

Writing last night’s Idols♥ Unzipped post later reminded me of a J~horror~ (psychological thriller) movie I’d seen Yada Akiko star in and actually the very first time I had seen or heard of her was in the drama series “Aishiteiruto itte kure” (“Say you love me”) in which Yada Akiko played the part of the younger sibling to Toyokawa Etsushi who stars as a hearing impaired man who encounters an unlikely love~meeting w/ a young girl played by actress Tokiwa Takako…this would in fact be my very first Japanese drama series that I’d watch~. Today’s mini~movie is titled “Yukiyama” (‘Snow mountain’) which I think? only runs about 30 minutes or so in total. The story stems from a horrific airplane crash where a small group of survivors must band together in order to attempt to survive both the extreme elements as well as themselves or could it possibly be an outside horror which has come to stalk them without mercy?? Things are even creepier when a deep snow is falling like in that old J~horror classic where a man’s deceased wife returns to haunt him when he pursues another love going against her dying warning placed upon him.

The following 12 parts are taken directly from the DVD’s chaptering though it may seem to be a bit random in where each part begins and ends…also the full mini~movie is subtitled in English as well =).

Following the movie and its caps are just a small sampling of scans from Yada Akiko’s very first shashinshuu titled “Vivo!” including some of my most favorites♥….keep in mind that this pb was shot quite a long time ago so some if its styling is evident of just that although adding together a timeless beauty in Akiko~chan♥ w/ wonderfully exotic scenery is truly timeless in its own right~. I also loved the photographer’s choice of going with black & white imagery for some key photos in the book which adds an extra touch~* of elegance at times….please enjoy both the movie and book ^^♥。

While this pb may be a bit of a rarity there’s something also a bit familiar about the two photos above, you see there’s another idol♥ and one of most prominence in the idol♥ world whom has photos of herself taken in this exact same room as seen above from a similar angle…..the question is can you name her?

        • Happy you watched =)…i just love mini movies where one series is made up of lots of little ones so you get to see so many varieties of the genre. I notice that Japan in particular has a lot of these minis…ohh Akiko is so~so popular a name and yes she’s most pretty~*!!

          We’ve been having lots of windy days and nights which are bringing in lots of scattered showers recently over the past week or so but we’ve had some drought periods so they always say we need the rain =). I hope things are good there too!
