Tokyo Tower ~Me & My Radio, & sometimes My Mom~ Chapter 4  (Part 3)

Although I had passed the Amuse auditions, their terms of “Annual Salary ¥30,000” had put me in a spot. Seeing no other choice, my flat-mate and I moved to a cheap apartment house in Mitaka. But every night, we had to accept our life senpai’s invitation to drinks, so finally I took leave of my flat-mate and moved to Shibuya by myself.

My next home was the Amuse staff quarters in Shibuya. I rented a room there and started a new life with 3 other Amuse staff. And so began the days of four big men living together.

My room was on the second floor, there was a common refrigerator on the ground floor. Not thinking much at that time (in fact, I didn’t think at all) I treated everything in the refrigerator like “they were mine” and started eating and drinking without asking anyone. I really practiced the motto “your stuff is my stuff” and that, of course, infuriated all my companions.  

“Fukuyama……you can’t do that, drinking other people’s stuff freely like that……”
But I don’t know why, I had this notion in my mind that these were “treats from the seniors for the junior”.  
“There is nothing wrong with drinking what my senpais bought for me,” I had the nerve to think at that time, I just forgot the courtesy of “telling them first”!!

I also started a new job, in the coffee shop next to the police station in Udagawa-chou (宇田川町), Shibuya. I was dressed all in black and I could feel the passion of the ladies’ gaze on me……. What was going to happen, I couldn’t tell, but I was certain of one thing, I paving my way to a new future.

While I worked, I also attended the Amuse training classes - how to flex your joints; how to say your lines, etc. I took my lessons quite seriously. No, to be exact, at that time I thought I had attended my classes well. But when Tonesaku (東根作) and I were talking about the old times, what he said greatly surprised me:
“Ma-chan (まーちゃん) was almost never in class! Not only that, you’ll finally appear at the end of the lesson with a ‘Thanks for your efforts!’ and invite everyone out ‘Let’s go for a drink! A drink everyone!’ ”

It was true that we would frequent the pub under the Naka-meguro (中目黒) bridge, after class. A group of friends sitting around the motsu hotpot* and debating “Who’s the strongest amongst the pro wrestlers?” Not long after, I was given a role in the movie “Hon no 5g”.

Of course at that time, my mother had no idea what I was doing in Tokyo. I didn’t even tell her about passing the auditions. For my mother in Nagasaki, I was sure she would have no idea what I was talking about if I had told her about auditions in Tokyo. So the first time I called my mother and told her about my life in Tokyo, was after I got picked for the movie “Hon no 5g”.

To be continued.

Thank you so much izumi-san. And you better take a good rest yourself too.

Oh God! Young Masha is the housemate from hell. I'll kill him before he makes his debut. I had a fight with my housemate previously because he used my cooking utensils, and that's just utensils. Not food. And knowing us, most Asians are particular about food. Thou shall not touch our food- Die!~~

Boy also seems to have met with a couple of yakuza fellow, especially in Tokyo. Poor guy.

The next part is hillarious. I loved the part when he called his mom & tell her about his debut & his mom reply something funny....  Grin Grin   *suspense*

Thanks izumi-san for the double dose of Masha on his trail to fame.

I'd  surely scold that kind of neighbor, that or torchering him verbally again and again until he decided to leave.
He's so darn lucky ^^

Haha, so funny, at that time, he ddin't think much about how to treat his seniors. But he told about his mistakes, his thoughts so honestly and this make me love him more and more.
Thank you Izumi-san, and if you are still tired you should take a rest, don't need to force yourself.

Tokyo Tower ~Me & My Radio, & sometimes My Mom~ Chapter 4  (Part 4)

Honestly, I couldn’t really believe that I was going to star in a movie, but I went into the green telephone booth and called my mother anyway.
“Mom~, I’m going to be in a movie.”
“Eh?  A porn movie?”
Ker-chak! Furious, I slammed the receiver down.

However……
On the first day of the filming, my first shot at the studio was ………the “love scene”.
“Well, you’ve got a bit of body contact in here,” the director said.
“How shall I do it then?”
“Oh, like you would normally do,” was his answer.

“Eh? A porn movie?”  For a moment, my mother’s words from yesterday rang out.
In my heart, I was already warming up in anticipation of what was to come.
“You said like normal, right?”  
My partner had started out as a model, and was totally different from the girls I had seen in Nagasaki.
“This is my first time in a movie.”  I was very enthusiastic. She looked very beautiful in her pink cling underwear, and not only that, she had a very nice fragrance too. My heart was heating up, and it almost boiled over when I saw one thing. Since the rehearsals, her skirt had been flipped up many times, and under her stockings, I could see the “underpants of the beautiful model from Tokyo”.  
This is “Tokyo”.......

Having done something that I have never tried before, or even dared to think about*, I was surprised to find it felt totally unreal. At the preview, I was shocked when I first saw myself on the big screen. “What a loser………”  (*a love scene with a Tokyo model ?? )

The first thing my mother said after she saw the movie was: “You have awful posture!”
Why do mothers always look at things from a strange perspective?
“Can you stop hunching your back? And the way you eat is just like your father, no good!” she said without hesitation.

After that, I was called in to see Amuse Chairman Osato.
He suddenly announced to me, “You are going to be a Tamiya Jirou (田宮二郎)!”
Now Tamiya Jirou-san’s roles - handsome cool elites; yakuza; villains who would stop at nothing to get what they want, etc. are all characters that he excels in, he is basically a first-class actor.
“You…you’re not a Shintarô Katsu (勝新太郎)*……yes, definitely Tamiya Jirou. That settles it!”
And the Chairman one-sidedly made up his mind.
*  Shintarô Katsu’s best known role was as blind Yakuza masseur Zatoichi (座頭市) in the series of films by the same name, which were very popular in the 1960s and 1970s

In any case, because I had starred in a movie, my salary was increased to ¥80,000 a month. Even so, life was not that much better. (Did he have to quit his job?)  Well, as long as I stayed in the rented quarters, there was food to eat freely in the fridge and AV to watch freely when I wanted. And when things got really difficult, there were still many ways for me to make do.

I would go to the office and take turns to shimmy up to 3 Amuse staff, “Lend me some money~~”.
If I was hungry, “Take me with you to dinner~~”.
If I was bored, “Let’s go for a drink~~”.
I was like a downright “himotaranto”** ( 「ヒモタレント」. And because they were all too kind-hearted, they would gladly (?) lend me their money or treat me to dinner. Now that we mention it, the money that I borrowed from them at that time, I don’t think ……I have yet repaid...  
** Actors who are "taken care of" by wealthy women

Thinking about it now, they were really unafraid of this extortionist and were still willing to mix with me. In “Tokyo”, I was being cheered on and supported by many different people without my knowing.


~End of Chapter 4~

Okay, how the heck Amuse put up with him again? If it's me, he's dead. Ouch!

And oh dear,  Grin @ his mother's reaction. Now I know where he got his witty sense of humour. From okasaan! She's just so, matter-of-fact.

Now we know something might have happen that pulled him back to music, instead of staying with acting. I wonder how...

I read that the person who posted "Hon no 5g" on Youtube had written on the BBS that they deliberately cut out the first few minutes (the love scene) because they didn't want to spoil oyaji's image for the upcoming Taiga drama.

The first scene we see on the Youtube video No. 1 was immediately after and that was how young Masha was dressed like for the action. They did describe it though, apparently Masha's character was fooling around with another girl (not the female lead) in the house ---> they were clothed and basically just rolling around Tongue

Come to think of it, it's the first scene of his entire entertainment career, what a wonderful start   sweat

Buuuuut!! Oyaji's next drama will have (hopefully) Japan's first ever-recorded honeymoon scene! The next taiga will probably show more skin than the previous taiga *River is guessing* Which made the pervert in me can't wait.

I will check the hon no 5g video again. Thanx for this update.  And it also made me wondered how he went from there, to his music.

Oh, he wrote in the latest Bros (Midori's translation) - can you please confirm Loze?  that he's building his muscles up for the taiga because he doesn't know if he will need to wear mawashi (belt wrapping around the lower body i.e. the only thing sumo wrestlers wear)   
  *imagining mode on*  Roll Eyes

and even if he doesn't need to show his body, he'll need the strength for the sword fights.
(edit) It's one of his objectives for this year - to get a 'mawashi body' <-- his words Grin

I so agree with you River-san, I personally think he gets the cheeky-witty personality from his okasan.  Grin Grin
I read some part of the story & found it hillarious. Only he could say & do something so uniquely Masha.

Muscles? Biceps? Will we get to see that? I don't really think he will showing much skin though.  What I really want to see is his sword fighting... ooo so kakkoi. *picture in my head*  Smiley

The latest I heard, when he accepted the part was that he's going to start with his sword-training. Apparently Ryoma is really good with sword, the top student in his dojo. I'm expecting some sword scene, oh yea. How does a mawashi body look like? Masha seems to be quite fit (of course, what's with the guitar playing and stage jumping), and from few pictures of Ryoma, dude seems to be a bit on the skinny side (maybe it's due to the unkempt looking hair).
