Kame and Yamapi to Reunite for Dome Tour 2020 with Latin Themed Amor Mini Album

This is one of the rare good news to come out of the good news shortage 2020 so far. Japanese idols Yamashita Tomohisa and Kamenashi Kazuya have reunited for a May 2020 mini dome tour starting in Osaka and ending on Tokyo. The two worked together musically first as the fictional Shuji to Akira named after their characters in hit dorama Nobuta wo Produce (still my absolute fave). They reunited in 2017 for Kame’s dorama You Are My Destiny as Kame to Yamapi and that duo is back for a 2020 twirl with a Latin themed single “Amor” that sounds like Shunji and Akira grew up to become emo Latin lovers brooding down in Bogota. The first single is out so check it out for yourselves as a weird 2020 throwback to 2005, except the beautiful amazing Horikita Maki is now retired and the mother of two. Oh how time never looks back.

A Look at the Leading Actors of Japanese Entertainment

A couple of months ago I did a write up on TW-actors and TW-actresses, which was relatively easy to do since there just aren’t that many of them occupying the perch as certifiable leads. The same isn’t true elsewhere, which … Continue reading
