Aoi Yu romances three guys in “The Birds She Never Knew” movie

Aoi Yu and Abe Sadao star in the upcoming film “Kanojo ga Sono Na o Shiranai Toritachi”. The film is based on the 2006 novel of same name by Numata Mahokaru and directed by Shiraishi Kazuya.

Aoi plays Towako who married an older man Jinji (Abe) out of convenience. She cheats on him with a married man Mizushima Makoto (Matsuzaka Tori) who reminds her of her first love Kurosaki Shunichi (Takenouchi Yutaka).

Poster, still images and teaser trailer are out! Check them out below. Film opens October 28.

Synopsis

Towako lives with Jinji, a man fifteen years her senior. Dedicated to her in every way, Jinji cooks, does the chores, and works a grueling job in his bid to support Towako. On the other hand, Towako lies around all day, neither working nor cleaning. Worse, she scolds and berates the sweet-tempered Jinji remorselessly, and cheats on him without a second thought. However, foremost on Towako’s mind is Kurosaki, an ex-boyfriend who brought her the only joy she ever knew. No longer able to resist her urges, Towako calls Kurosaki, but hangs up immediately. Soon after, Towako is visited by the police. It seems Kurosaki vanished five years ago under mysterious circumstances. As Towako searches for answers, she begins to wonder what role Jinji might have played in Kurosaki’s disappearance, and if there might be something sinister at work beneath his ever-pleasant demeanor.

      one of the finest actresses in Japan. I remember when I first saw her in Gaichu (Harmful Insect) in a supporting role, she’s been around and successful for so many years. More often than not she just needs a few minutes of screen presence to pull it out

      Amazing actress. She’s also got a very messy romantic private life apparently but that’s never translated into any roles she’s done so I’m looking forward to seeing this movie.

        OOOOH really? What has she done? #spill that tea #plz . She is an amazing actress! Very versatile in my opinion.

          Edit: wrong person, sorry

            Wrong Aoi. This Aoi is the Aoi he dated before Miyazaki. Miyazaki was friends with this Aoi Yu but they haven’t been seen or talked about each other in years.

              Sorry, got them mixed up.

                Not surprising. Both have the same looks – small, pixie like hippie type, and are generally acclaimed actresses. Okada has a type.

                  His type is Mori girls

                  • Aois

                    Ah. That’s the word for pixie hippie. Forrest nymphs.

                    He dated Sato Hitomi and Yuka when he was in his 10s and early 20s. So his type went from sexy bombshells to soft mori girls LOL.

          She dated actor Okada Junichi for 4 years but cheated on him with actor Omori Nao. Then she left Omori for Okada Junichi’s co-star of 4 years, actor Tsutsumi Shinichi. Then she started a relationship with Miura Haruma who is 7 years younger but it was speculated they were just sleeping around together and she left him.

          Interestingly enough, Okada ended up in an affair with Aoi Yu’s best friend Miyazaki Aoi. To make things even more messy, both Okada and Aoi Yu attended Miyazaki Aoi’s wedding because they were friends with both bride and groom. A few months after the affair came out, that’s when Aoi Yu was dating Okada’s co-star Tsutsumi Shinichi.

            Miura has moved on with Koharu-chan. No news of Aoi current beau?

            Still love her. She sounds like an interesting gal.

            • H

              She really is. I mean yes, cheating is not a good look and I don’t blame her for dating her ex’s co-star after he goes after her best friend. And nothing is wrong with dating younger men if they’re of age of course.

            OMG O_o you were not exaggerating when you said her personal life is messy. Especially the wedding part. Thanks for replying and letting me know! ^^
