Los Angeles Premiere of Toho's HIDDEN FORTRESS: THE LAST PRINCESS at USC  
I saw the MOST beautiful man EVER last night!!!

I woke up early but my sister and I ended up leaving the house around 11:30ish. I went to buy Michiocan burritos since the wait was going to take all day. We started lining up at 11:45 am and the line did not consist of, I swear, even 25 people. I was so pissed off when people from the online fan club started cutting into the line as if they had the right to do so. They let us in around 5:30 pm. and there was like 100 people ahead of me. Wouldn't you be pissed off?! Anyways the wait was extremely long but the screening finally started at 6:30 pm. I sat at the center of the 5th row.

After they dimmed the lights, the curtains separated themselves from the center and the fans started to scream. haha Too bad Matsujun was behind it. XP Instead, there was a screen behind the curtains. Scenes of C-3PO in the Star Wars movies began to light up the screen.

Afterwards, Anthony Daniels walked up to the stage. I know it was mean but I was looking towards the back of the theatre after Daniels walked in because logically Matsujun will also walk through the same doors. And sure enough I saw him. He kind of snuck into the room and hid in the corner behind a bunch of people before he was introduced. I saw this and just screamed out "there he is!!" then all the fans just flicked their heads towards the direction of the doors haha When Daniels finally introduced the director, Shinji Haguchi, and Matsumoto Jun, the fans screamed like crazy. He is so beautiful in person!!! My sister and I, surprisingly, started crying when he walked down the aisle. haha He had on a pair of dark tanned pants with black boots. On top was a nice dark pastel green dress shirt with a dark green striped tie. Over that was a navy blue blazer with 2 pins attached to his jacket. His hair was perfect. His face was perfect. It was clear and light. His lips were pink (well what other color can they be?) and looked -drools- well in total he was -drools- haha I'm sure it's freaky but, yes, I starred at him the entire time. When it was Matsujun's turn to talk, we all screamed every time he completed a sentence XP I'm so proud of him for memorizing his intro speech in English! His voice is sexy too! ^^

Anyways...after the introductions they took press pictures with us in the background. After THAT the screening started. A lot of people, including myself, sighed "YES!" when the subtitles came on. haha XP The movie was good and I knew 3 out of the 4 main characters. I have never seen any of the three act the way they did, with the action and all, so it was pretty interesting to watch.

When the the lights came back on, the Q&A session began. There were 6 people onstage: a guy leading the discussion, Anthony Daniels, Matsumoto Jun, Director Shinji Haguchi, and 2 translators.There were typical questions like "what made you decide to recreate the famous film" and so forth. I felt sorry for the fan who got to ask her question first. She was so nervous that no one understood what she was trying to ask. Daniels tried to save her but he got it wrong too. haha Matsumoto got a lot of questions, of course, but it was great that not all the questions were directed towards him. That would show that all the fans came just for him and not to watch his movie, ne? XP Well it also helped that most of the questions weren't from the fans. I think they were USC film students. XD It was funny..when someone would compliment Jun, he would do the thing that Japanese people always do where they nod their heads forwards and backwards? I don't know how to explain it but I'm pretty sure anyone who has seen enough Japanese clips has seen it. The fans would scream and he would look all bashful. haha One of the translators sucked at translating and there were some parts that didn't get translated. The people that understood were all "Awww...he's so sweet!!" Dammit I wanted to know!! =(

The Q&A ended with the guy who was leading the discussion cutting Jun off. -sprouting devil horns- As Jun was leaving a couple of the fans gave him bouquets of flowers and he actually accepted them!! One of the girls came back screaming that she touched his hand. haha SO lucky!! I should do that next time so I can grope their hands =D

After that they served us food while Matsujun made a break for it. Well he didn't go off running haha Just that we never saw him again =( I miss him already. So depressed because that was it. No more seeing him again. But if I ever do..it probably wouldn't be as close and as long =( But I feel lucky that I had the chance to see him live in person!

Yea so as I was driving home, my sister was trying to blast some Matsujun performances from my poor laptop. And I got lost in downtown AGAIN -.- so I just kept driving straight towards the CT direction until I saw the 110 North sign haha

Oh yea I changed out of my short shorts and into my jeans in the car in the parking lot because my dad would kill me =D

Oh and another thing. While walking to the parking lot, I started thanking Matsujun's parents and Akira's parents and the director's parents and whoever else's parents for bringing Matsujun here to LA. haha My sister thought I turned retarded. =D

I think that tis all! Sorry about my style of writing. I just wrote like how I talk..with lots of like's and laughing (haha's) XP

Here are some pictures.

I just saw my page on google after typing in the name of the event so due to me not wanting to get into trouble and making the US fans look bad I made another post with the pics under f-lock.
