Announcement Today, I have established 'BBuild Co., Ltd.' It has the meaning of "美(Bi) Beauty" & "確立させる (to Build) - Build". Since my College days I have been thinking to do Beauty Business which I am interested in. Finally, I had decided to take a step forward. For last half a year I had thought a lot and solidified this idea. I am planning to establish a Genderless Cosmetic Brand focused on Men. Currently we are still in development. We are aiming at making the Men around the World more beautiful. Of course, I will continue with my acting career like usual. From now, I want to start new as an Actor, as an Businessman, with the new title of 'Actor Entrepreneur'. Please continue to support me. Shouma Machii
