Q: what kind of efforts do you make for dubbing?

A: i once try to match my mouth with the movie scenes at the dorm (T/N: when he practices), the members find it funny, they also take a video of it, and they even buy me a koala doll then give it to me as a gift. i squirm when they monitor me like that and it’s pretty embarrassing, but i have to think that i’ll do my best. ^^;;

Also from “This Is It” will be singer Judith Hill, who is of half-Japanese decent. Her and Macy Gray, a singer-songwriter who first came to worldwide attention in 1999 with her distinctive raspy voice on songs such as “Do Something” and “I Try,” are the sole international acts on the bill. Besides the large role expected to be played by AI, other Japanese stars of note include pioneering interracial Japanese singer Crystal Kay. She credits Michael as the inspiration for her own career, fondly recalling listening to the Jackson 5 hit “ABC” as a child.

"Resident Evil: Revelations will include both English and Japanese (with English subtitles) voiceovers. The voice of Chris Redfield is performed by Hiroki Tochi, while Jill Valentine is performed by Atsuko Yuya. Tochi also voices Nathan Drake in the Japanese versions of the Uncharted games. Additionally, there will also be voice tracks in four other European languages. We also know a bit more about the game’s story today. The virus in Revelations is the T-Abyss virus. It’s a marine virus based on the T-Virus itself. The game’s antagonists, Veltro, possess enough to contaminate one-fifth of the world’s oceans."

"“Who does he think he is?” said Lt. Col. Lisma Dunggio, the clearly frustrated police spokeswoman from his hometown. “What made him famous was his uniform.” The video of Kamaru trying to lift the spirits of a heartbroken colleague by shimmying and lip-synching to the Bollywood hit “Chaiyya Chaiyya” went viral in April."

"Globally (except in Japan), family-run businesses underperform those run by professional managers. Japanese corporations often seem to have a talented son to take over for his father. The main reason for that, according to an August Freakonomics radio report, is that the family scions usually first recruit an ideal “son” and then adopt him, often also encouraging their daughters to marry the men. (Japanese adage: “You can’t choose your sons, but you can choose your sons-in-law.”) If the man is already married, sometimes he and his wife will both get adopted. In fact, while 98 percent of US adoptions are of children, 98 percent of Japan’s are of adults."
