I’ve been reading Heroine Shikkaku and Orange lately in anticipation of Yamazaki being in both of them and because they’re both being released this year and I thought I’d share my views on what I’ve read so far and how I think Yamazaki will do…
Fistly Heroine Shikkaku – WHICH btw seemingly there are currently cut outs for PRing this movie in most cinemas. So guess what I’m doing on my day off on Tuesday xD
So far I’ve read the first two volumes of this! The character development is very good and it has some seriously funny moments xD I am liking Hatori very much and Rita is still very much a mystery but hopefully we can see more of his side soon, and Kousuke definitely has potential to win over my heart xDGeneral Plot of the Story:
We follow our main girl, Hatori who is in love with her childhood friend, Rita(Yamazaki) but he decides to date a (what she thinks is a) plain girl and she can’t understand why she isn’t the heroine of his love story because Hatori believes it is her destiny to always be with him and thinks in natural that they would go out. But through her own fault, she never confesses and he begins to date a girl called Adachi. Until she meets someone hotter, Kousuke, who pursues her, and slowly her heart begins to change, but is Rita only just realising his feelings for her now that she is interested in someone that isn’t him? And is Rita’s girlfriend really just as innocent and as nice as she appears?Manga Spoilers (for first two volumes!):( ( 1 )Collapse )From Manga to Film – My Thoughts:

---Now onto Orange!!
OMG this manga guys! Holy crap! It’s SO beautiful! I’ve only read one volume of it so far but holy crap, I was trying SO HARD not to cry on the train and during work when I was reading it! xD Seriously, if it’s in English or your native language – READ IT!General Plot:
Naho receives a letter one day from her future self telling her that she has many regrets which all began during her second year at high school and wishes to change them, but gives her past self the option. So first thing: ‘Set alarm clock the night before – so I’m not late’ Naho oversleeps as was written in the letter. Over the next few days she learns that what the letter says is true and she begins to slowly set the regrets straight. But there is one huge this that her future self really wants to change: the new transfer students life; Naruse Kakeru’s life.Manga – Spoilers for Volume 1:( ( 3 )Collapse )From Manga to Film:*Watches 32 second teaser*( ( 4 )Collapse )
