Lena Fujii (藤井リナ) is my favorite Vivi Model. She's 25 years, 5'4" and a quarter American. (Her mom is Japanese, and her dad is biracial) She started modeling for Vivi when she was 19, after being scouted in Harajuku, after which she moved to Tokyo into an apartment by herself, and quickly became one of their top models, thanks to her strong work ethic, sweet smile, great bod, and her ability to combine a girlishly cute 'kawaii'-ness with a aura of coy sensuality.

In addition to Vivi, she also appears in several other magazines: sweet, ar, VOCE, and LOOK!s, and models for several companies such as Peach John, and has her own line of kimonos, yukata, wedding dresses and jewelry. She has released one photo book, LENA, and one album, also titled LENA, and recently, an essay/photo book of off-shots called 'No Make', which also contains photos from her blog, Ochappy Days ~Fuji Lena's Ochame de Happy-na Hibi~". (Lena Fuji's mischievous, happy days') She's also appeared in music videos, commercial, and has a radio show.

She has an apricot toy poodle named Tiffany, and is dating ISSA from Da Pump.
She has also dated YamaP from NEWS, and KAT-TUN members Jin Akanishi and Koki Tanaka.

In high school, she studied abroad for a while iin both Switzerland and Los Angeles, because she decided that she hated not being able to speak English looking as un-Japanese as she does. In Switzerland, she was bullied at the school by students who said things like 'Japanese girls like you shouldn't be wearing make up! You're so impudent!', and 'Japanese people should either write manga or go on the internet!', and decided to get revenge by wearing lots of make up and slutty clothes and stealing the leader of the mean girl's boyfriend.

Her best friend from Tokyo says she's a 'princess', and Lena agrees, saying that when she was a teenager, she used to wonder 'Why do I have to live such an ordinary life? Why do I have to live in such an ordinary apartment building?" and that when she grew up, she realized, 'That's because I'm an ordinary person!'

Despite weighting only 96 lbs, according to her official profile, she eats a lot, usually enough for two people, and once ate 6 bowls of tan-men noodles, and once ate yakiniku 5 times a week for an entire 6 months.

Her personal PR is: No matter how depressed I am, or how hard things are, I'll be fine the next day! No one can get over things faster than me!

PART ONE: Pictures from Magazines.

(Note: While I have been subscribing to Vivi magazine since 2001 - way before Lena's debut - I don't have any of the magazines at the house, so these photos are just from 2009 and 2010)

So Cy and Chicchai!Aileen and I began our Epic Re-watching of Sailor Moon S this weekend, and so far it's quite amusing, and we come up with character meta that my 8th grade self never dreamed of. (Such as the fact that Haruka and Michiru are swingers, attempting to lure each of the senshi in for a bit of fun, and how Usagi and Mamo-chan have really bad sex in the present, but had super hot dirty sex both in their previous lives on the moon kingdom, and in the future in Crystal Tokyo). Dirty minds aside, I still have such a fondness for the show, and the darker themes of the manga that inspired it, and well, the world just seems a little more magical with a reincarnated Moon Princess running around saving it from evil.

In that spirit of nostalgia, here is a (MASSIVE) picspam of my favorite pics from the Sailormoon art books. (Looking at these brought back so many memories!)

Warning: one or two slightly NSFW images under the cut. Yes, you read that right.

Thanks to yesterday's perusal of blogs, I have somehow become an Ayaka Komatsu fan.

Komatsu Ayaka played Aino Minako/Sailor Venus in the live action show Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon. Whether or not she was a good Minako was kind of a moot point, because the show completely changed her character. Either way, she wasn't a very good actress, or a very good singer - fact I'm surprised she continued to release CDs and act.

She looks the most 'idol'y out of all of the PGSM cast - everything about her is tiny, save a certain important part. (And it's not her eyes, although those are pretty big too.) She looks fragile and cute and not entirely bright. She's kind of awkward looking, and she only has two expressions, possibly three.

FACE #1: Press lipped smile

FACE #2 Kissy face/pout

FACE #3 Serious/Sexy/Grown up (???)

And yet.

I am completely infatuated by her. She is so adorable and I love her! <3

She is so cute and cheerful and hard working!

She works so hard! She has more on her resume than a lot of the other girls, and seems to be active in the most variety of fields (gravure modeling, singing, and acting).

(#3 is my least favorite expression, because...I'm aware she's a gravure idol and all, but...I just don't find her sexy. Adorable yes, but not sexy.)

From time to time she gives a question corner on her blog, where I learned fun facts: XD
Miyuu is giving her chocolates for Valentine's Day. She says she would need to lose weight to be a regular model (Please no, there will be nothing left of you! :O ) She has a secret recipe (including apples and honey) for her curry! She used to be a cat person, but she's recently awakened to the cuteness of dogs!

<3 <3 <3 Komacchan!

So much cuteness!! )

Back in 2003 - 2004, there was a live action tv show of Sailor Moon, called Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon. After I came back to the Us, I fell behind and eventually stopped watching, but while I was in Japan, I watched every single episode. I was even the official unofficial synopsis writer for the big PGSM fan site.

The story - which started out as pretty faithful to the original manga - ended up deviating rather extremely from any of the previous versions of the Sailor Moon, but for the most part it kept the spirit of the originals - I especially thought Usagi was perfect - and I adored it with that special nostalgia tinged fondness one has for the things one loved way back when.

Today I was looking at some Jpop singer's official blog, and one of the blogs that popped up on the popular blogs of the day list was the blog of Mew Azama, who played Mako/Sailor Jupiter. I went to have a look, to see what she was doing lately, which of course led to me looking for the blogs of the rest of the cast:

All the girls in PGSM were idols of one sort or another - magazine models, tarento, gravure models, and after the show ended, they continued being idols.

In addition to her modeling, Miyu has been in movies, tv shows (both dorama and variety), stage shows, and done some voice acting.

Chisa, who now goes by her real (?) name of Rika Izumi, took 2 years off to finish high school, and then returned to modeling after she got into university in 2008, and is now an official model for RAY magazine. Apparently, she is closest to Mew, and they appear in each other's blogs a lot.

Mew, who is a graduate of Okinawa Actor's School, and a former member of B.B WAVES, and got into Law School in 2005, has been in tv shows (both dorama and variety) in a addition to her work as an official model for NON-NO and CAN-CAM magazines.

Keiko is the only one of the five who is an actress, and has been in 13 movies and 4 dorama since 2006.

Ayaka is a gravure idol** with 7 DVDs and 6 photobooks under her belt to date. In addition to her work as a gravure idol, she has been in several dorama, movies and stage shows, and released several singles and albums under the name Aino Minako.

**Gravure idols are models who appear in men's magazines, and release photobooks and DVDs, often wearing bikinis and striking seductive poses. However, in the traditional definition, these DVDs and photobooks are relatively tame, highlighting the physical beautiful of the idols; they do not appear nude nor in sexually explicit positions.

The girls remain good friends to this day and, from the frequency they appear in each other's blogs (either all together, or in pairs, especially Mew/Rika and Ayaka/Miyu) they see each other quite often. The only exception appears to be Keiko, who doesn't seem to be in any other photos when the other four get together. Unless he is always the one who takes the picture.

And now for a picspam, courtesy of the girl's official blogs! XD

At some point last year, Patrick discovered the fountain of youth, I think.

Patrick Stump around age 18ish, circa 2003:


Patrick Stump in early 2009:


Patrick Stump in 2010:

Meet the amazing Audrey Kitching...


Who is Audrey? Audrey Kitching is a 24 year old model from Philidelphia, PA, currently residing in Los Angeles. She does model work for various companies, magazines and photographers, as well as side gigs like interviewing people at movie premieres and awards, mostly for Buzznet, and hosting events like the Hello Kitty 35th anniversary party last week. She is extremely driven ambitious, hard working, and likes to regard herself as a professional, which she may well do, as she has been modeling since she was 16.

Audrey's Myspace

For anything you've ever wanted to know about Audrey Kitching, check out this amazing primer here. It's a little old at this point, since it was made last year, but still very very awesome.

Also, you can find her journal heree, which is updating weekly (sometimes more often) with photos, news, and posts from her.

Now on to the picspam! )

Recently Ta-chan had his 26th birthday, which I think calls for a celebratory mini picspam!

This is a still from the 'LIPS' video, which is what first got me into Ta-chan! I just loved his flippy girl hair!

Two of my other favorite attributes of Ta-chan:

1) His hot boxers bod:



2) His adorable huge smile


Love the glasses...

This pic is just So adorable!

While checking out Escape the Fate's new video (the most -possibly unintentionally- hilarious video ever! Bryan opens the door of the plane and jumps out at one point! Also Craig is no Ronnie, and Max is still hot and crazy. Random cameo with Benji) I discovered a band called Black Veil Brides. (Thanks, 'Related Videos'!)

They are kind of too hard for me - you know, the kind of music where only the verses are singing and the choruses are all screaming - but I don't really care, because the lead singer, whose name is apparently Andy Six, is really hot.



And I loved the video, the way it was shot, in mostly stark monochrome. (Even the though storyline about the bullied emo kid doesn't really seem to have a good conclusion??)

I will ignore both the screaming and the unsatisfying storyline, because it (read: Andy Six) also hits a lot of what 'those girls on the internet' would call my bullet proof kinks:

1. eye make up
2. deep v-neck shirts
3. chest/throat tattoo of text
4. all white outfit
5. rosary (bonus points for rosary pulling)
6. mic twirling
7. kneeling and outstretched hands

Super hot picspam of Adam and Brad.

<3s Adam! Please hurry and finish the Idol tour so you can have one just by yourself!!!

Also, I realized that...I really love Brad. Like, a lot. Moar Brad!!

But now I wish that Adam and Brad were still together. Drake is not as interesting. LOL Also, I just love them.

I am still kind of sad about this whole Panic thing, especially given yesterday's revelation. It kind of makes me want to curl up at home with my old comfort cure-all: a cup of tea and a fic.

Instead, I will be going rocking out with Rancid/Billy Talent/Rise Against, which seems like an excellent substitute for the above. ^__^

In the meantime, I am posting these pictures.

Panic may be split and fractured, but my girls are all back together again, and that thought has the power to make me feel happy no matter whats going on.

This is how it was meant to be.

I have come to the realization (through watching the RESCUE video again) that I find Koki really attractive. Something about his confident badass delinquent persona. Like, he just seems so devil may care - he's a rebel, but he also has fun.


Picspam!! )

One of my co-workers just gave me a happy cinco de mayo Avocado!! I don't really get it, but I love avocados, so it's okay!

It's still raining - that Irish misty kind of rain. But I have Typhoo tea, so yay.
Bart was running 30 minutes late and I had to wait at the transfer station for 17 minutes and then the train was totally Japan rush hour style packed! But I ended up being only 15 minutes late for work! One of the many times I've been glad that I usually get there with 15 minutes to spare.

Tonight we are having dinner at the yummy local mexican place with chicchai!Aileen and B-Killa. Yay.

MAX is on their tour now, and the best part is, there's going to be a DVD! It will be their first concert DVD since 2001!! I'm so excited!! (Even though I don't really care for Minako's new bangs.) But looking at the pictures make me so happy! This is how MAX is supposed to me!!



(As for Aki, Yuki formerly of Yellow Generation posted this big girl crushy post on her blog about how much she loves Aki-chan. I wish they would form a group! That would be awesome!)

Mini Namie Picspam!






How is she thirty??
