It was revealed that miwa will be starring in the movie Maestro! which is slated for a 2015 release.
miwa herself announced this at the miwa spring concert 2014: Shibuya Monogatari ~Kan~ held at the Kokuritsu Yoyogi Kyogijō's 1st gymnasium. After performing her new song "Let me go" during the encore, she stopped and said: "There's something that I have to tell everyone", and surprised everyone in attendance after announcing that she will be in a movie. She continues, "I'll be balancing my musical activities and the filming of the movie. I have no experience at all in acting and I feel like I'll have my hands full with it, but I'm gonna give it my all!".
Maestro! is a live action adaptation of Akira Saso's manga Maestro, where former members of an orchestra that had to disband due to their sponsor going bankrupt gather once again under a mysterious conductor and aim to perform once more at a recital. The young concert master will be played by Tori Matsuzaka, Toshiyuki Nishida will play the part of the conductor, and miwa will play the role of the heroine who is a flute player.
I went to the concert today, and pony-tailed miwa really looked like an angel
I think there will be mixed reactions from her fans regarding this movie gig
Does she want to become an actress?
And now she gets to play the role of the heroine without any acting experience, huh
Feels like she wanted to become an "idol"
Looks like she's heading for the same path as YUI
Why didn't they book any actors instead?
- 何がやりたいのかわからんなギター弾き語り系かと思ったら打ち込み音楽で歌ったり、ギター持ってる意味ほとんどないしI have no clue as to what she wants to do.
I initially thought that she'd be the singer-songwriter type, but she just sings songs backed up by digital desktop music, there's almost no point to that guitar of hers.
It's like they producers are saying that "We have no intentions of making a good movie"
Isn't she ashamed that she has to pretend to be playing the flute in the movie despite being a musician?
She's the upgraded version of YUI
Face=downgraded version. Boobies=upgraded version.
I think she'll be finished without even having a signature song
- あまり畑違いな仕事はやらない方がいいよ下手したら本職に響くからShe shouldn't do too many jobs that stray away from her main line of work.
It might have a negative effect on her main job.
So will this girl also end up like YUI after a couple of years?
She's with a different agency but she's taking the YUI route, huh.
Her singing is quite nice. And Ikimonogakari's cuteness pales in comparison to hers.
I am feeling the force from her agency
SONY in itself is no good, which leads to the music department having to wipe its butt
- 去年はスピリッツでグラビア表紙もやってたからなあ明るくてルックスいいから歌手だけじゃ勿体ないと事務所も考えてるんだろうまあそれはそうと今の似合ってない前髪パッツンはいつになったら止めてくれるんだ？She even did a gravure cover for Spirits last year.
Her agency probably thought that it would be such a waste to limit such a bright and good-looking girl to music alone. That's that, but I wonder when she'll stop sporting these straight bangs that don't look good on her at all?
- ウタは適度に気が抜けてて意外とうまいと思う熱唱系だけがウタウマ認定されるのに疑問だからなI think that her singing is actually pretty good as she suppresses herself quite nicely from time to time in her songs.
That's because I find it bewildering how the ones who just belt out powerful notes are being considered good singers.
- ポストYUIか。女優適応度ならmiwaのほうがあるかもしれないな。身長は低いけど、全体的に小さいので画面上ではかわいく映るだろう。顔もアイドルしているし。家入と若干かぶるから紅白レースは熾烈だ。"Post-YUI", huh. miwa might actually be better suited to acting than YUI,
She may be small height-wise, but everything about her is so she'll still look cute on-screen.
Her face also looks like that of an idol.
But she and Ieiri are slightly similar, and they seem to be headed for a collision course as to who will be able to get on the Kouhaku.
