I like japanese CM also !
I have made a new site about it :
Found more info on Sakuraba Nanami.
As of Sepetember this year Nanami had became a member of a group called bump.y
bump.y just released they 2nd single, 2人の星〜離れていても (Futari no Hoshi ~ Hanarete ite Mo).
Here is the PV: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cmUJvZ6hArc&feature=related
So shes Natsuki's seiyuu. In the bank CM, Nanami looks older than 18 tho, like in her early 20's. Does Nanami remind anyone else of Nagasawa Masami? :-) Nagasawa-san is one of my fav actress. In the bank CM, Nanami really looks so much like Nagasawa-san.
My favorite part of those ads was the old fellow in the Mitsubishi commercial with the AMAZING moustache at the 0:06 mark. Seriously, Mario and Luigi have nothing (NOTHING!) on that guy. =O
You *must* try to get her on Culture: Japan, Danny! That would be Vizzini-inconceivably awesome! (^= ^ )\
just watch summer war last week and T_T was sugoi sugoi
My apologies....English is a good way for everybody.
Correct.Nanami‘s acting is so awkward, but very cute！
No todo's podemos leer in japones, seria come yo escribiendo in espanol(no muy bien). Por lo menos traduselo en ingles si puedes.
*Not Everyone can read in Japanese, it would be like writing this in Spanish(not very well). If you can, please add a translation into English*
Much appreciated Tanhiroshi =)
Totally agree! Danny it would be a dream!
Her voice sounds a little higher in the Orange Nacchan CM than in Summer Wars... maybe a growth spurt? p('- ' )...
Twin Spica? ('- ' ) ?
hm, this burogu post remembers me to the recently discovered TED. danny, do you know www.ted.com? i think, you could also give a lecture on japanese pop culture, although you're busy with your work. but the idea of ted is: ideas worth spreading.
japanese pop culture is surely worth spreading, isn't it? (＾Д＾)
lol I saw lots of asian adverts when I went Hong Kong too they were so funny I remember there was one for a deodorant type thing for a ladies private area xDDD in the advert everyone kept staying away from her until she used the spray :D
Summer Wars was *awesome*... for reasons, not the least of which was Nanami-chan's Natsuki. p('- ' )
I love asian commercials. I remember going back to Vietnam and watching commercials because they were funny and not serious. There was a website called Stage6 created by DivX that had a lot of people posting japanese CM. It was the only place I can watch Japanese CM. Too bad the project ran out of money and there wasn't another place to go to to watch them :(
Heart gripping cute
/got a feeling that she IS going to appear in the show
Right, he's famous Japanese actor Hiroshi Fujioka who performed Kamen Rider1.
I feel like an orange juice for some reason. (;
But seriously, Sakuraba is a cutie. :3
The guy on the bike in the 3rd video looks like Segata Sanshiro from the Sega Saturn CM. Am I right?
Ohhhh I know that drink, recognise the brand anyways :) She's adorable :)
She's very pretty. :-)
She's cute. You should definitely invite her over for on Culture: Japan once :D talk about commercials and seiyuu-business. When will we hear you in an anime, Danny? :D
She's really cute. Now I want to watch Summer Wars again!
Yep, she is definitely Kawaii!
Thanks that was my question also. Wonder if she's in or finished HS or has she been full time junior-idol/actress thing?
Funny thing, Sakuraba's name reminds me of the spoiled wannabe actress girl Shirakaba in All Purpose Cultural Catgirl Nuku Nuku TV. I hope she's nicer than her. And yeah, I've seen (and heard) her performance in Summer Wars...she was great in that. She's not my "type" for the simple matter she's the wrong gender. Mukai Osamu is more my "type," actually...mmm what a guy...but I suppose if I was a guy or had different sexual preferences than I personally do, IYKWIM, Sakuraba-chan might be my "type."
koi koi koi! ^^
OH LAWDS! What a cutie XD
Also, a bus full of schoolgirls? IS THIS HEAVEN?!
i´d buy a clock without an hour arrow if she wanted me to!
ALSO i cant wait to retire to send her picture of me... but mine would´nt be the kind of stuff the old man did in the ad *he he he* ^^
I love the random bus driver in the first CM XD
lovely photos of hers in the official site.
I just wanna be the Sri Lankan man.
She just turned 18 a couple weeks ago.
Oh yeah! Kamen Rider Ichigo and Den-O!
Shes cute :-) Wonder how old is she now??
Sakuraba is so cute! Im in Tokyo right now and i was for the Bank cm at the Set and saw her :) !!! Luckily i have a Picture of it!
I want Nanami appear in your TV show, too.
However her performance fee should be considerably high.
Ah, she's cute! I remember seeing her in a jdrama, I think it was the one about becoming astronauts
She could sell nearly anything to me ^^
