Maeda Atsuko goes on yakiniku date with boyfriend despite his infidelity

14 Jul

Maeda Atsuko has decided to stick with her boyfriend Matsuya Onoe despite his latest cheating scandal, as both were captured going for a yakiniku date on the 5th July 2014. This is the first time the 2 were photographed together ever since their relationship was exposed in September 2013.

According to Josei Seven, the 2 were spotted in a high class yakiniku restaurant in Tokyo, seated opposite each other in a private room. In the midst of their “date”, Maeda moved to sit beside her boyfriend and they continued eating. After their meal the 2 walked leisurely with Matsuya matching Maeda’s footsteps. Maeda was smiling all the while.

Just last month, Matsuya Onoe was captured kissing a woman ‘A’ in her 40s, who works in radio broadcasting. He apologised for his behavior but many thought that this would be the end of his relationship with Maeda.However, 24 days later, both continued to date like nothing happened.

Josei Seven pointed out that this yakiniku date had a special meaning for Maeda. Even though Maeda has graduated from AKB48 and is free from the love-ban rule, she has chosen to date indoors to respect the feelings of her fans. That is why photos of her and her boyfriend have never been captured. This time, the decision to date in public was perhaps her way of showing ‘A’ that Matsuya Onoe is her boyfriend.


In a recent interview, Matsuya Onoe was asked about his ideal type.

“I like the type who can tolerate, someone who can walk 2 or 3 steps behind her husband,” he said, showing his preference for traditional type of girls. “Also, she has to wear kimonos and be able to manage.”

These are certainly traits of females married into the kabuki clans.



Matsuya Onoe’s mother approves of her son getting married to Atsuko Maeda

25 Nov
Over a month since Atsuko Maeda (22) and kabuki actor Matsuya Onoe’s (28) relationship was made public, people have been closely monitoring the outcome of this big couple’s romance.

As both parties maintain their silence, we went to the first day of Onoe’s stage play held last November 1. As we made our way into the staff entrance of the venue for the play Meijiza Juiichigatsu Hanagata Kabuki, we spotted a delicate woman wearing a white kimono, looking for him. This was his mother, Morie Kawai (57).

“Matsuya Mama” was also known as a shinpa actress. According to related personnel, she has been seen numerous times in the venues in order to attend to the people who come to the dressing rooms to greet her son. Matsuya Mama was initially surprised with our sudden interview, but answered our questions calmly.
What is the outlook like concerning a Matsuya-san and Maeda-san marriage?

“I have always thought that whoever marries a kabuki actor should at least know a little about the industry. If it’s someone like Atsuko Maeda, then I entirely approve of it. Even tomorrow is OK with me.”
–If they do get married, would you want Maeda-san to join your family?
“I retired from my acting career when I got married, but I want Maeda-san to continue her career without forcing herself too much.The kabuki world is not a financially stable industry, especially when you are still young. There are also times when the wife has to provide support for the husband…… It will also be difficult once they have a baby.”
–Are the two living together?
“(As she nods a little) I’m terribly sorry, I would need to be excused as I am in a hurry.”
It was a very short crash interview, but she has definitely made it clear that she would gladly welcome Atsuko Maeda as Matsuya’s wife.
It seems that no one can put a stop to the love affair of the couple. Despite the lingering aftershocks of reports about her romance, there’s no doubt that this new tremor called “marriage” will shake the public further. But there are still concerns as to how the couple have met which eventually led to their relationship…
When we tried to ask both agencies for comments, the reply we got from Matsuya’s side was: “We will not disclose any comment regarding this matter”, while Maeda’s side went: “The one in charge isn’t here so please call us again some other time”.

Maeda Atsuko and Matsuya Onoe dating with marriage in mind

1 Oct

According to Tokyo Sports, Acchan and Matsuya Onoe have been revealed to be dating with marriage in sight. It seems that Acchan is really serious about this relationship, as her conversations with friends have evolved from “relationships” to “marriage”. She’s even talked about her ideal wedding ceremony.

Acchan and Matsuya Onoe met last year and exchanged contacts. In March this year, the 2 met again at a mutual friend’s birthday party/drinking session. “Those who saw what happened were shocked. Acchan approached Matsuya aggressively,” said a young actor who worked with Acchan.

At that time, Matsuya Onoe had a lover who was in her 20s. The girl, nicknamed “N”, was a model for some magazine. She often visited Matsuya’s room backstage and the 2 were publicly acknowledged to be on good terms, said a kabuki insider.

Friends of Matsuya think that Acchan is simply one of his girlfriends. S, a popular actor, apparently told others that “Matsuya has caught a big fish.”

However, Matsuya seems to have started dating Acchan seriously 2 months after the birthday party. This could be due to Acchan’s serious attitude about relationships, which she showed by asking to date with marriage in sight.

“She can’t stand it if she can’t get in contact with Matsuya. On the other hand, Matsuya also wants to date with marriage as a possible option in future, and doesn’t want to play around anymore,” said a related personnel.

At this rate, it seems possible that a lightning marriage is on the cards. What kind of expression will she show when she makes her next public appearance at the Busan International Film Festival on the 4th Octobers?
