Just a few days ago, Kou Shibasaki and Masaharu Fukuyama appeared on Music Station to perform their latest work, 最愛 Saiai, which is the theme song of the Galileo movie! The song is great and we get to see Masaharu strumming his guitar!! Kakkoi!! hahaha In all seriousness I felt that Masaharu wasn’t very into the whole thing but that might be just me…he is a bit old compared to the rest of the crowd but I still like him! =)

I’ve uploaded the segment here

Btw, the Galileo SP aired yesterday! Can’t wait to see them subbed! The guys over at are great with their work! Really looking forward to it. ^_^


The official website is out with more trailers and previews! *sigh* It’ll be AGES before we’ll get to watch it…how come I don’t know Japanese?? Aaaaah!! Tasukete!!! hahaha

The theme song of the new Galileo movie has been released! It’s called 最愛, read in Japanese as Saiai and means roughly my dearest love. I heard it is written by Masaharu but I could be wrong. The CD will be available for sale on 1 October (3 days before the movie). Might just pop it into my basket! haha I do have a 500yen coupon that needs to be used!!! =P

The song is pretty nice and from the few words I can catch plus the name of the song, it sounds fairly romantic. Hopefully it means we might see some serious Utsumi x Yukawa relationship development!

But, the music video is kind of disappointing! There’s no hint/preview of the movie at all. Oh well…at least this will help the Galileo drought that we’re suffering!! LOL

Music video is here and I’ve also ripped the music off the video. Enjoy~

OMG! Not only is Galileo being made into a film and will be released on 4 October, they’re also making a SP to be released on the same day! BUT, it won’t be Kou and Masaharu we’ll be seeing as the story will be from 3 years before the time of the drama. Anyway, there will also be an appearance form Masami Nagasawa who plays a student lab assistant!~ I like Masami! Can’t wait! ^_^

Galileo gets SP on same day as film release!

Fans of the drama series Galileo have one more thing to look forward to. Anticipation is already high for the “Yougisha x no Kenshin” movie, opening in theaters on October 4. Now, Fuji TV is turning it into a double dose: a one-shot special titled “Galileo: Episode Zero” will be aired on the same day as the film’s release.      

The special is set 3 years prior to the drama series, with the story being related to a murder case that was partly referenced in the original show. Detective Kusanagi (Kazuki Kitamura) is looking to solve a murder mystery, and he gets back in touch with his former badminton teammate, the brilliant professor Manabu Yukawa (Masaharu Fukuyama)

The special will also portray an incident from Yukawa’s college days. Popular teen actor Haruma Miura plays the young Yukawa. 

Other cast members include Masami Nagasawa as a student lab assistant and Karina as a mysterious woman tied to the murder case. Fuji TV will broadcast the drama at 9:00pm on October 4 (Source: Tokyograph).

Anyone out there watched the 2007 jdrama Galileo!? Well the movie is out!! Well soon….! It will be screening in Japan on 4 October 2008. *SIGH* It’s still quite a while away and will be ages until a DVD or subs will be released!!! Aaaaah!! 

The movie will be a new case and will be a intellectual battle between the main protagonist, Yukawa, our genius physicist and a genius mathematician. Oh dear! I think Utsumi will be quite lost here!! hahaha Oh and there’s also Shinichi Tsutsumi who I think plays the mathematician.

I was annoyed at the finale of the drama where we didn’t get to see Yukawa respond to Utsumi’s feelings!!! It’s like…WHAT?? They’re going to leave us hanging like this?!?! I was kind of annoyed. Anyway, I hope they address this in the movie and we get a satisfying ending like at least one BIG HUG!!! AHAHAHAHA Hey! I’m not that greedy!

Here’s the trailer!


For those not familiar to the name, this movie is a follow-up to the jdrama that finished in December 2007. 

The drama is mystery based where Kou is a rookie investigator, Kaoru Utsumi, who seeks the help of a genius physicist university professor, Manabu Yukawa (Masaharu). The formula is simple – every episode is one new case and each time Utsumi will show strange occurences to Yukawa claiming that it’s not possible or can only be explained by supernatural theories. Yukawa, who is a scientist believes all things can be explained by science so when presented to a difficult problem, he typically says “Omoshiroi” (means “interesting”) and dives into the investigation. It sounds kind of repetitive but it works cos Kou is pretty to watch and Masaharu is intelligent and definitely worth checking out!! He carries this air of confidence that should probably annoy you objectively speaking but you just ask for more!! ahaha I feel like Utsumi now! Love his professor/intelligent/slightly-nerdy-but-for some-strange-reason-still-dig-it look!! haha I mean, who wears waistcoats these days!?!?! LOL

Ratings and awards

To further convince you this drama is worth watching, it averaged 22% viewership over its 10 episodes! It also scored at the Japanese Academy Awards:

  • Best drama
  • Best actor – Masaharu Fukuyama
  • Best supporting actress – Kou Shibasaki
  • Best script
