Are you a fan of Japanese actresses? Have you encountered Takei Emi (武井咲) in watching Japanese dramas and films? You may be familiar with her since she starred in the popular live-action adaptation of Rurouni Kenshin. Takei Emi just recently starred in the film called Terra Formars. This time, she’s back to the small screen with having two dramas to boot! One is a drama series, while one is a drama one-shot special.
Kurihara Mia (portrayed by Takei Emi) works in the public relations department of a company. She then meets and falls in love with the vice president of the company which is played by Takizawa Hideaki. This is a story about love and having affairs.
Takei Emi’s comment on Seisei Suruhodo, Aishiteru: “I’ve been doing love comedy before. This time, it’s an adult love story. I don’t have any experience on it. I’m looking forward.”
She also anxiously commented, “There are some instances I still fumble or mess up. However, I want to express Mia’s genuine thoughts and the radiance of working women.”
Setouchi Shounen Yakyu dan is a special drama starring Takei Emi that will begin this Fall 2016. It will be based on the novel of the same title by Aku Yu. Setouchi Shounen Yakyu dan is set after World War II on Awaji Island in Hyogo Prefecture. Komako-sensei, portrayed by Takei Emi, is an elementary school teacher who becomes a baseball coach. She tries to give hope to her elementary students.
Takei Emi’s comment on Setouchi Shounen Yakyu dan: “The children were able to work hard until the end. On Setouchi Shounen Yakyu dan, with the children’s great energy, everyone is full of hope to live. Lastly, I was allowed to write a letter to all the children.”
Takei Emi is sure on a roll! She hasn’t had any breaks so far. As a huge Takei Emi fan, I’m surely pleased to see her shine again. I hope people who dislike her will give her a chance this time. Despite others being not pleased with her acting, she still continues to improve.
