Morning Musume member Mitsui Aika will be making her acting debut starring in a straight to DVD horror movie, called Real Kakurenbo Final, set to be released on January 7, 2011. This is definitely exciting news for Aika fans, such as myself. Maybe this means my beloved Mittsi is finally gaining some real popularity, because they could have easily given this role to Sayumi or Reina. Straight to DVD release or not, she’s in a movie before more popular and established members. I take this whole situation as being extremely positive for Aika’s career. And maybe this means in 2011 she’ll finally get that illusive photobook she, and many fans, have been waiting for.However, Mitsui Aika or not I will most likely not watch the movie. I don’t know, I guess I’m a bad H!P fan but I haven’t really cared about any of H!P’s acting jobs. I could care less about Ai-chan’s random crime drama. (Q.E.D.) Or Yaguchi Mari’s and Meada Yuuka’s mermaid movie. (Hoshisuna no Shima no Chiisana Tenshi ~Mermaid Smile~) I didn’t care about Niigaki Risa’s and Nakajima Saki’s movie who’s trailer I didn’t even watch. ( Honto ni Atta Kowai Hanashi 3D ) Or even Yajima Maimi’s and Fukuda Kanon’s horror movie. (Fuyu no Kaidan/Winter Ghost Story) Well actually I do care about Winter Ghost Story because Kanon’s in it, but it’s not like I’ve watched it yet. Well let’s not also forget JunJun’s web drama (Dreaming Places Makes Us Dream) and ManoEri’s web drama and movie (Mano Spy/Kaidan Shin Mimibukuro Kaiki) that I also haven’t cared about. XD
The lot of the dramas/movies either look really boring or are starring members I don’t really care about. I guess I’m just the kind of person who doesn’t watch something just because of who’s in it. Granted I have done that with JE dramas and movies before. But only because they are were remotely interesting. I’ll never watch Code Blue or something stupid like that. I even do that sometimes with American movies. (I sat through both horribly immature Camp Rock movies just for the Jonas Brothers XD) But I mostly watch them because I have something pretty to stare at for a couple of hours. H!P members are pretty yet not in the same sense.
I think this whole paragraph might be a contradiction. XD
While I am on the subject of H!P acting, I think it’s completely awesome that H!P members have started acting. I’ve wanted them to act for the longest time since JE groups/artists always act. And what will boost your popularity/your groups popularity more then a highly successful drama? Aside from an amazing single, close to nothing.
