New movie for Matsuyama Kenichi

Actually, the news actually about Koda Kumi singing the theme song for the upcoming Matsuyama Kenichi’s movie 😛 .

I think the teaser trailer is already released, maybe you can find it somewhere in youtube ??

Koda Kumi Sings Opera

J-pop diva Koda Kumi (26) has taken her first bash at classical music, kind of. She recently recorded a new song that is based on an aria from Handel’s Italian opera “Rinaldo.” With original Japanese lyrics by Koda, “Alive” is the theme for “Kamui Gaiden,” Sai Yoichi’s big screen adaptation of the 1960s anime “Ninpu Kamui Gaiden” (Kamui the Ninja). It stars the currently red-hot Matsuyama Kenichi (24, photo) in the title role of a ninja who becomes a fugitive from his former clan. While filming last summer, Sai was listening to a favorite aria, “Lascia ch’io pianga” (Let me Weep), and felt that it captured the theme and atmosphere of the movie. With a melody by Iwashiro Taro (44), who wrote the movie’s score, Koda recorded the song over three days at the end of May. It will be released as a single in the autumn. The movie provides yet another high-profile role for Matsuyama, who has made a name for himself in such films as “Death Note,” “Detroit Metal City” and the upcoming “Norwegian Wood.” The all-star cast of “Kamui…” also includes Koyuki, Ito Hideaki, Sato Koji, and Tsuchiya Anna. The movie is scheduled for theatrical release on September 19.

  1. wooot … Kenichi looks real good in the picture. thanks for sharing the news about his new movie. i’ve just finished watching his Zeni Geba a couple of weeks ago …. which is really good. have also enjoyed DMC. can’t wait to see Norwegian Wood and this one. i’ve never listened to Koda Kumi but i love Taro Iwashiro’s music. i believe the movie score is going to be great. since the new movie is about ninjas, there bound to be action scenes in it and of course, violence. i’ve enjoyed the director’s previous movies such as Blood and Bone, Soo and not to forget, the bittersweet Quill.

  2. I saw the trailer a while ago over at Twitch and I can say it was impressive.
    Kenichi must have been training really hard for it.
    I’m looking forward to all his new films, nakushita kioku(memories of a teenage amnesiac), Norwegian wood and this ^^

  3. wowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww
