Toshiyuki Someya, stage actor/actor and seiyuu, wrapped up his fan meeting in Shanghai to promote his second photobook「９／０」.
“9/0” was released this past August. Someya‘s second photobook includes candid photos, interviews and other special treats just for his fans.
Given the hot response the photobook received in Japan as well as overseas, a Chinese version of his photobook is going to be issued in November. To celebrate that announcement, a fan meeting “染谷俊之2017ファンミーティング in Shanghai” was scheduled in Shanghai on 03/09/2017 which Someya attended.
Webnewtype magazine mentions that Someya is one of the most loved stage actors in Japan. He is called by Japanese media/fans as a “stage craftsman“, known for his fantastic, realistic portrayals and performances as well as his method acting that have impressed in “Prince of Tennis“, “Yowamushi Pedal“, “Touken Ranbu” and “Messiah“.
During the event he talked about previous roles, his favorite ones, there was a special Chinese corner in which his fans taught him some words and expressions in Mandarin as well as a game and “situation” corners in which he played three different types of boyfriends. By the end of the event he expressed his wish to set foot on stage in China.
The photobook can be found on CDJAPAN (the japanese version).
