Endo Yuya never, ever, change (same with you Tomo). I love
it when D-Boys (and Watanabe Entertainment) do Shakespeare hilarity happens
especially between the ensemble cast members; there are always a few adlibs. Anyway be back with more soon.
Weiss Kreuz live - Dream Cast. Because I could, that's why.
Right. Since I finished rewatching Weiss Kreuz recently (oh gods, I first saw the series over 10 years ago. GODS.) - I got that idea and it really didn’t want to let me go. I think that WK, after a few adjustments, would actually make a pretty good drama series, soooo I decided to write down my ideas for the cast - for both Weiss and Schwarz.
Fujimiya Aya - Shiraishi Shunya
Why: I know Shunya can play the stoic type very well, he has a fitting body type, and something in his face reminds me of Koyasu Takehito himself. I’m not sure if he’d pull off that “TAKATORIIIII SHIINEEEEE” scream, but then again - there is only one person who can do this perfectly, and that’s Koyasu himself XD So Shunya is my type for Aya.
Hidaka Ken - Sano Gaku
Why: Again - I think Sano can play a character like Ken. They both have that… kind-boy-next-door look, and they’re both athletic guys. And if I remember correctly, Gaku was also good at football. Sano it is then.
Kudou Youji - Hosogai Kei / Mizushima Hiro
Why: While my first choice would be Kei - he has the right look and voice in my opinion, Mizushima also has that vibe, so he’d be my second choice XD
Tsukiyono Omi - Nishii Yukito
Why: Omi, especially in the manga, looks younger than he is. Nishii has that trait, and in my opinion his boyish baby face fits Omi just right. He’d also be the smallest of the team.
I have to admit, finding actors for playing Schwarz was hard for me. Mainly because ¾ of them are supposed to be foreigners in Japan, being American, German and Irish, and I honestly have no idea if there’re any white actors in the Japanese show-business industry that’d suit the roles “XD But at the same time, I think that in the live adaptation they’d use either Japanese actors or actors with mixed heritage anyway, so I just went that way too.
Brad Crawford - Shirota Yuu
Why: Something in his face makes me think it’d be actually a good choice, though I have to admit, I’m not that sure. Then again, no one else comes to my mind, Shirota has the very right height, and I think he could do well in that role.
Schuldig - Aoki Tsunenori
Why: While Tsune doesn’t even have a mixed heritage, I think his smirk would fit Schuldig’s personality, and I know he can play a manipulative bastard just fine XD
Naoe Nagi - Takasugi Mahiro / Mizuishi Atom
Why: Both boys are unfortunately a bit too tall (and maybe even a bit too old already - I mean Nagi was 15 in the series, while both Mahi and Atom are already 18) but in my opinion they have the right look, and they both played a similar character before. (And we know Mahi looks good in a suit XD)
Farfarello - Inoue Masahiro
Why: Inoue’s nasal voice, lanky body and full lips reminds me of Farfarello traits, plus, Inoue probably also can play a mad man XD
Youji - Mizushima Hiro
Nagi - Mizuishi Atom
There, I let it go! I hope it was at least a bit enjoyable!
Any thoughts? XD
(No picture is mine, thank you all kind people who posted them!)
Since when did this happen. No one told me, your sick for a week and you lose track of who is G.A in what. Nishii baby oh so cute. Still liking this drama, Ohno and Suddachi’s powerplay is fun to watch unfold. Suda is doing a mightly fine job; the looks alone. If looks could kill.
