    Takei Emi and EXILE attend “adienergy” event for Adidas

     

    On November 17th, actress Takei Emi (17) attended a press event for the announcement of Adidas’ new sportswear, “adienergy”.

    In addition to the appearance of this young actress, EXILE members MATSU (36), USA (34), andTETSUYA (30) also attended this event. Takei revealed at this announcement that, “I actually often walk outside in jerseys,” thus showing her interest in the new clothing line. She was then even taught various stretch techniques by the three members of EXILE and commented, “I should do this before any crucial event,” and her eyes shined along with this comment.

    With the Chunichi Dragons and Fukuoka Softbank (professional baseball teams) competing in theJapan Series on this day, Takei revealed she is a big fan of the Chunichi Dragons. However, her senior at her agency Ueto Aya (26) is the star figure for numerous Softbank endorsements so the reporters could not help but ask Takei at this event, “What would you say to her if the Chunichi won?” She then responded, “Don’t ask me a such mean question~” and answered this inquiry nervously.

    EXILE’s AKIRA & TAKAHIRO become image characters for social game, “Seiken Kerberos”

     

    On November 21st, EXILE’s AKIRA and TAKAHIRO attended a CM presentation event for GREE’s social game, “Seiken Kerberos“.

    AKIRA, who was rumored to be in a relationship with actress Nagasawa Masami, was asked about his Christmas plans. He responded, “Our concert is near so I want to spend an enjoyable time with the members.” When TAKAHIRO added a follow-up by saying, “I want AKIRA-san to open up his schedule to go on a date with me,” AKIRA laughed and said, “Out of respect, I’ll excuse myself into TAKAHIRO’s room.

    “Seiken Kerberos” is a card battle RPG that allows players to go on various adventures to build up the strongest force. The first series of the CM will come in two parts: “AKIRA” and “TAKAHIRO”. It portrays AKIRA and TAKAHIRO as heavily-armed courageous swordsmen who prepare for battle.

    For the game’s CM, TAKAHIRO challenged himself to try sword battles and horse riding for the first time. He commented, “I was very scared, but I tried my best not to show my frightened expressions.” Meanwhile, AKIRA, who has personal experience with those two skills, said, “I practiced by watching wonderful acting.” TAKAHIRO added, “He is quick-witted and is very capable. I grew impatient while watching him getting filmed.

    The new CM for “Seiken Kerberos” will broadcast starting November 25th. You can watch a preview of it along with the event here.
