Comeback in August?

The last thing we heard from Erika is that she went to Spain for her honeymoon, to study graphic design and to further improve her English skills all in one go. The plan was to make a comeback later this year and now some more details regarding that move has come to light.

"It's been more than 1 and a half years since all the riots she caused. She's been separated from work and from her fans for such a long time, so it seemed like that she didn't get offers for roles anymore. However, whenever there have been news about her coming back to Japan, her agency literally got flooded with requests for movies and doramas. The marriage with Takashiro was another smash in the face for the agency, but as long as there is work they can easily forget about such things. Now they've actually persuaded Sawajiri to return to Japan before the Summer." An insider revealed.

Erika was actually supposed to make her comeback right after her teary apology on TV after the Betsu ni... incident, but she disregarded that plan and traveled to London. Her marriage too, she never kept her agency in the loop. These events caused rumors like that her agency would deprive her of role offers in return, but now they unexpectedly seem to have changed their mood towards Erika and even decided to make a comeback with a movie completely produced by Stardust themselves.

"Since this year, Sawajiri's agency Stardust Promotions started not only to make but also to distribute movies by themselves. The first movie they distributed was "Yomei" in February. There is a lot of money to earn by distributing a movie by yourself and so it's just normal that they are seeking for a very big hit." A movie writer explained.

"There have actually also been rumors about Sawajiri getting the role in 'Yomei' long before it got released. Not many theaters played the movie when it got released in February, but a lot of them stated that it would have certainly been a hit with Sawajiri in the starring role and they definitely would have put it in their programs."

It's not that Erika and Takashiro really have to worry about their income, but a comeback in August could become reality since the timing seems to be right.

Oricon: Most Dramatic Life

Oricon asked about 1,200 men and women which celebrity has the "most dramatic way of life". Actress Sawajiri Erika ranked first. She's someone who gained a lot of attention with her uncontrolled words and is probably the most appropriate person for the 1st place.

Unforgettable here behavior at the stage greeting with her several dull answers like "Not really.." which became a major buzzword and not to mention her marriage in 2008 that had been all over the press. It's not a big surprise that she got most the votes, but let's look at some of the comments from the voters. "I've voted for her, because she gets constantly observed by reporters, had this huge bombshell announcement, and she got married." A teenage girl from Osaka explained. "None of us ordinary people will ever able to live as freely as she does." Another teenage girl from Toyama commented. Some opinions like of this man (from Aichi, in his twenties) even go one step further, saying that, "You could be able to make her life into a movie."

On 2nd place comes Matsuda Seiko, an idol from the 80's who already went through two divorces in her life and constantly made headlines with her work and her private life. "She keeps on shining and standing at the foremost front despite all her scandals." Most of the comments said something similar to that one, but there also aren't just a few women who look up to her way of life, especially her love life.

The 3rd place goes to famous director, actor, comedian, host, writer, painter... Kitano Takeshi. "This man simply is a genius and he really crept up from the bottom." - "He's interesting, he's funny, he's cool, he's uncontrollable and he does whatever he wants. In short, he's an amazing person." Comments such as those two above always pile up when it comes to this man, not only in Japan. He used the boom of comedians to make it all the way to the top and and later became a worldwide acclaimed movie director. Kitano also had many drastic events in his life such as his severe motorcycle accident. It's hard to find someone who doesn't respect this man.

Here now the top 05:

1. Sawajiri Erika (22) - Actress and singer
2. Matsuda Seiko (47) - Singer and actress
3. Kitano Takeshi (62) - Personality, director, actor, writer, ...
4. Tamura Hiroshi (29) - Comedian
