George's next job, possibly...

(Just saw this information on tenipuri_myu, but don't know any real way to verify it. Although I do hope the information is accurate.)

Wow. It appears that Daisuke Watanabe (George Ikaruga in Ultraman Mebius) is going to be in the Prince of Tennis Musical!!!! Apparently he will have the same role Yuu Shirota used to have...not that I really know much about Tenimyu.

Anyway, it is kind of weird. I always thought they looked somewhat similar in appearances (probably had to do with the whole Spanish thing; either that or I need my eyesights checked ^_^'), but I never dreamed that there would be any tangible connection. (Side Note: Back when I was watching both Ultraman Mebius and Kamen Rider Kabuto weekly, I did try to connect Watanabe with Kazuki Kato, a former Tenimyu actor who played Daisuke Kazama in Kabuto: Daisuke (Watanabe) -> Daisuke (Kazama) = Kazuki Kato. (What can I say? I never admit to being quite normal...))

I guess this means I have more incentive to watch the musical (keep putting it off mostly due to lack of subtitles, but I may try watching raws).

(Apparently you can send Watanabe a fan mail, but will he see it???)

EDIT: Yes! This news is confirmed now. ^___^

And more info/pics.

George being cast in a Prince of Tennis musical was definitely a shocker for me. It's hard to reconcile dancing and singing and George. :D Well, I've never seen the actor anywhere else, so I'm definitely curious and I can't wait to see how he fares.

Shirota and Daisuke remind me of each other, too. It's not their facial features exactly, but when I see one I'm sometimes reminded of the other. So, you're not alone in any potential eye disorder. :D

I can't really imagine him singing and dancing either, at least not the way they do it in this musical. In any case, I think Watanabe did a really good job in Mebius as a Spanish soccer player so it'll certainly be interesting to see him in a different role. :)

Oh, thank you. It's nice to know that I'm not alone in thinking that Watanabe and Shirota are somehow alike. ^^

Niftiness! I'd been wondering what he was going to be doing next.

Randomly, Igarashi's new drama should have started airing this week. I still haven't found torrents for it yet. ;_;

Yeah, it has been a while since Mebius ended.

Oh, the first episode of Shigeshoshi was supposedly aired yesterday (Oct. 5), but I'm not seeing torrents for it either. Oh well, will certainly share if/when I come across any.
