On August 24th, Takei Emi’s graduation ceremony from ‘Seventeen‘ magazine was held during the event, ‘Seventeen Natsu no Gakuensai 2012‘, at Pacifico Yokohama.

During the event, Kiritani Mirei and Sato Arisa, who were a part of  the “Nekome Sanshimai” (“three sisters with cat eyes”) with Takei, made a appearance. “They seem so busy, so I didn’t think they would come,” said Takei. “The ‘Nekome Sanshimai’ is an important presence. Because of it, there were people who came to know me, and I was able to grasp my character.

Takei’s eyes filled with tears as she reflected, “I’ve been indebted to ‘Seventeen’ for about 6 years, so I was full of emotion trying to express my gratitude. I gained a lot from ‘Seventeen’, and that’s become my fortune.” She then put a smile on her face and expressed, “It feels good to graduate in such a beautiful way. I want to enjoy things I love such as modeling and acting.

Former graduates from ‘Seventeen’ magazine include Kitagawa Keiko, Kimura Kaela, and Mizuhara Kiko. After debuting on the magazine in its December 2006 issue, Takei has been actively modeling for ‘Seventeen’ since 2007. She’s recently been busy with her acting career, and currently plays the lead role for Fuji TV’s drama series, ‘Iki mo Dekinai Natsu‘.

The grape hair, which is Takei’s adorable way of expressing how much she wants to chew the delicious gum. “I thought it was so original. Since it was so wide, I bumped into the camera equipment and stuff,” she said, revealing some of the troubles she had on set.

Takei’s head is filled with the thoughts of fruit during her commercial, so the young actress revealed the one thing that’s been on her mind a lot recently. “I want to be pretty, so I’ve been thinking about what I should do (to be pretty),” she revealed. “I’ve been thinking of eating tofu instead of rice, taking the stairs as much as possible, and things of that nature.”

On May 28th, Fuji TV announced that young actress Takei Emi (18) and actor Eguchi Yosuke (46) are going to play a pair of lovers in the upcoming summer drama ‘Iki mo Dekinai Natsu‘.

A 19-year-old girl burdened by a cruel destiny, a 41-year-old man living in atonement, and a forbidden love that cannot be accepted by the people around them. ‘Iki mo Dekinai Natsu’ is as much a social drama as it is a love story.

Takei plays said girl who learns that her mother never recorded her birth in their family register. While falling into despair after finding out the secret about her birth yet wholeheartedly trying to live to regain ‘herself’, she happens to run into a former journalist (Eguchi) who is suffering from a deep scar in his heart himself. Although they could be father and daughter, they start to develop much stronger feelings for each other, a love forbidden by society.

Of course the drama’s main focus lies on the feelings of both protagonists, but it’s also heavily influenced by themes of ‘atonement’ and ‘forgiveness’.

Takei commented, “I seem to be able to playact [with Eguchi] a lot in the drama, which I’m looking forward to a lot.” It’s her first starring role on Fuji TV, about which she said, “You could call me a ‘Fuji Kid’, since I’ve been watching dramas on Fuji TV ever since I was a child. What I thought is impossible has now become reality, which makes me incredibly happy, but also very frightened.” About Eguchi, she added, “He’s a really fantastic person. I want to learn a lot from him.

Eguchi commented, “I cannot wait to see how the souls of the protagonists played by Takei and I are going to collide. This will be a drama that is going to touch people’s hearts.

The two actors will also have a great team of supporting actors to portray various intriguing characters around them. The mother of the 19-year-old girl, for example, will be played by no other than Kimura Yoshino (36).

Moreover, the lead female works at a shop that sells sweets and is often visited by a mysterious old man played by Kitaouji Kinya (69). There is also another lonely young man, played Nakamura Aoi (21), who is in love with her. Her grandmother will be played by Asada Miyoko (56). One man with a daring smile who seems to fudge with the destiny of all the characters involved will be played by Kaname Jun (31).

Fuji TV is going to air ‘Iki mo Dekinai Natsu’ every Tuesday at 9:00 pm, starting in July.

Takei Emi
(18) will take on a dual role in a new drama series called “W no Higeki.” This will be Takei’s first time starring in a drama during golden time (7:00pm-10:00pm), meaning even further exposure for the up-and-coming young actress.

The new version of the story will have Takei playing two different characters. One is Mako, the daughter of a major business conglomerate. She has always lived in comfort, and as a result, she yearns to finally grasp life with her own hands. The other character is Satsuki, a show pub dancer who lives a solitary and destitute life in a corner of the city and who desires money and power. Although the characters and setting are different from the original, the drama appears to follow the same concept of two women who exchange lives, leading to various tragic events for both of them.

“W no Higeki” will air on Thursdays at 9:00pm, starting this April.
