Actor Shun Oguri is releasing his first “personal” DVD this year through Geneon Entertainment. Labeled “Jounetsu Tairiku x Oguri Shun,” it will be the first time that TBS’s documentary program “Jounetsu Tairiku” is released on DVD.
The television show takes an in-depth look at the lives of celebrities by following them for many days. Oguri’s 200-day documentary was featured on November 11 and 18 of last year, which was the first time that two episodes were spent on one person.
Oguri’s DVD will contain a re-edited version of the documentary, along with unaired footage. The limited premium edition will also have a bonus disc with an approximately half-hour interview. The DVD goes on sale July 25.

‘s the name! Now, I never did this before–reviewing a TV programme–but this absolutely deserves a spot! I watched two episodes of this programme featuring both young actors–Yamashita Tomohisa and Oguri Shun whose both were in the middle of complex schedule of doing everything!
Not like a puffed-up variety show, It tried to be faithful to documentary core of filming. Everything is done plain and honest–for one who did this for a living in the last three years of her life, trust me, I know–while at the same time managed to reveal the truth behind the blinding flash of entertainer’s life. Love and reminiscing! True, I havent had the chance to watch other episodes–GIVE ME A COPY OF NINO’S PLEASE, L–and there’s not so many episodes around… even Ms. Savvy gave up on that, but I managed to took a glimpse on their back episode list, and it was beautiful. Not only they featured public figures–such as politicians, athletes, scholars, writers–they also did one with housewifes and small-time businesswoman. The format is actually 200 days with a certain individual, in which they would just follow said individual, and doing verite of their life. Such a wide range of topic choice, and I bet, judging from the two episodes, they stick to certain style and exploit it to the bone. Bravo! I would love to have the chance to get a glimpse of other episodes, even out of three sentences, I could only understand 2 words. “
