Have you ever read the manga “Paradise Kiss” by Yazawa Ai? ”Paradise Kiss” is a love story, but at the same time, focused on fashion. Although there’s already an anime version, fashion magazine “Zipper” announced that “Paradise Kiss” will also be released as a movie!. I do watch the anime but yet to read the manga. Maybe later i will post some preview for the manga and anime.
“Isabella” role casted, sneak peeks for “Paradise Kiss” revealed!
The film’s release date has been set for May 2011, but to indulge the hungry fans, some scene stills as well as a more-detailed cast list has just been revealed!
Igarashi Shunji (D-BOYS) will play the role of Isabella (actual birth name, ‘Yamamoto Daisuke’). ‘Isabella’ is a transgendered character who identifies herself as a woman by dressing and acting like one. To prepare for the role, Shunji lost 8 kg., removed his facial hair through laser procedures, and learned how to act like a lady (as Isabella is very well-mannered, feminine person).
Shunji revealed that he uses three false eyelashes on each eye. He also confessed, “I learned how hard it is to live as a woman through make-up and stuff, and to be honest, I almost got into it (to disguise in woman’s clothes).” ”Paradise Kiss” will also star Ohmasa Aya as ‘Sakurada Miwako‘ and Kaku Kento as ‘Nagase Arashi. Check out the sneak pics from the filming scene below!
The poster includes the catchphrase of the movie, which is “Encounter by Destiny? That’s not enough to describe it.”
It’s been reported that many apparel brands supplied their latest wardrobe to shape George’s unique fashion, so it will be one of the highlights of the movie, as well as the original ending which was made specifically for the film.
In the new poster, Kitagawa Keiko, Mukai Osamu, Yamamoto Yusuke, Igarashi Shunji, Ohmasa Aya, Kaku Kento, and Kato Natsuki pose at their “atelier”, which was designed with various ideas in order to catch the essence of the original manga set.
Before the official release, there will be advance tickets on sale starting on the 26th; those who purchase the advance tickets will receive a special clear file, which has limited quantities.
