Ikinari Dousei Series Iyashi no Yousei Therapia Vol.2
Fabric Softener Scenario 1

Not your boyfriend, not human either.
Living together with sprites that suddenly materialize?
Just like freebies that come together with bottled drinks like phone straps and magnets, some products come together with healing sprites. They are known as Therapia.
Appearing as you open a capsule that comes together with the goods, they will soothe you when you use products connected with them.
The sprites will fulfill you, whether while they're soothing you or making your heart go pitter-patter, as you live together with them.


Ikinari Dousei Series Iyashi no Yousei Therapia Vol.2
Fabric Softener Scenario 1
Voice: Tachibana Shinnosuke

Soaked from the rain, you reach home irritated.
You come out of the shower.

Therapia: Ah master, you're warmed up? I've wiped your shoes. I don't think they'll get out of shape. Once dry, they'll be as good as before. It doesn't look like the things you bought got wet either.
... That bath towel? Heehee, yesterday it was washed with fabric softener and dried with a good dose of sunshine. It feels good and fluffy, right?
... Does it smell good?

You nod your head.

Ichihara Hayato has a new girlfriend

In the issue that goes on sale today, tabloid Josei Seven reveals a new love for actor Ichihara Hayato (25). When the hit drama ROOKIES was on air, Ichihara had openly declared his relationship with A-san, his junior high sweetheart but it looks like that romance has fizzled.

Ichihara with ex-girlfriend
According to someone who knows A-san, the relationship had ended about a year ago. After 11 years, it seems that Ichihara had begun to see her more as family than a girlfriend and the break-up was initiated by him. The friend also said that the break-up had made A-san feel betrayed. A-san's mother said that she does not know the details but she had heard that the relationship was over.

Ichihara's new girlfriend is Mukouyama Shiho (26), an exclusive model for fashion magazine EDGE STYLE. Josei Seven published photos of Ichihara in sunglasses with the slim blonde beside him shopping together in mid-April. After shopping, they got into a car to head back with Ichihara in the driver's seat. At a red light, Mukouyama was seen snuggling close to Ichihara and giving him a kiss.

Kato Kazuki

Remember Makoto, Hotaru's boyfriend?

Kato Kazuki. I came across this photo and couldn't recognize him at all. He looks great with short hair.

Morikubo Showtaro, KENN and Kato Kazuki on Nico Nico Live program 'Kaikan[TO]Night ~Kenn and Morikubo Showtaro~' on 10th April.

Lately he seems to be more involved in stage plays and music than television work. In 2012 for TV dramas, he was in Fallen Angel and Koi Suru Watashi no Bakery. On stage, he played the main role in Recipient that ran in February and March. In May and April, he will be in the musical version of Coffee Prince.
