Will you help me?!?!

Below are links to entries where I have many pictures of my idols and I need information about the pictures!

I watched this LAST monday. It's part 2 to the Chihayafuru series! Part 1's review is here.


chihayafurushimonoku



( Don"t read if you were expecting mainly positive )Collapse )


----


Overal: This is another movie (like Ansatsu Kyoshitsu) where the second movie suffers from 'Second Movie blues' where it's no where near as fun as the first installment and suddenly becomes all serious. Which is a shame cos naturally I was a little disappointed. BUT it's still got karuta moments and it's great seeing their friendship grow and I did share a tear again BUT the ending was also disappointing.

I was SUPER underdressed for this. I was wearing shorts cos it's getting hot here. EVERYONE else was like 70+ years old and kimonos o_O but I think they put all of Tomo's senkou tickets together cos there were a few girls around my age on the same row as me so... but yeah I STOOD OUT and not in a good way xD

( Super quickie review )Collapse )

-


Overall: I enjoyed it regardless of my illness giving me backpain right at the half way point. It was funny, easy to follow, I liked Tomo's character and the different stories all had a conclusion and it was a nice way to spend an afternoon ^_^

Y'all gunna start getting bullet points where I don't need to elaborate or else I'm NEVER gunna get all these reviews done =[ so sorry but bare with!

So I went to Dream Live at Yokohama Pacific on May 20th and it ended up being the 1400th Tenimyu performance and the press came and took pictures and there were special guests and everything! So let's see what happened!

I am in this picture!! You can see up! Second floor balcony like tenth row which was really like 4 rows from the front xD

( loudest person there! xD )Collapse )

I'm okay!

Overall: It's safe to say I had a pretty epic time! I laughed, I cried a little, I fangirled and I got to see Ogoe in the flesh even if it was from pretty far away xD

So looking at my list, I still have:

Orphans
Dance with Devils
Binan KouKou Chikyuu Bu LOVE
Kurosaki kun no Iinari no Nante Naranai The Movie
Kadou Kawasemi
Fairy Tail

Which one do you wanna see first? Would you prefer I worked from latest to earliest or the other way or what?
I actually thought I had more left so this makes me happy to know that my list is pretty short ^_^

Watched this yesterday! (yes I realise I'm still behind on a shit ton).




I went with my friend who is a Terra Formars manga reader, but me not having done any homework (for once) went in with the expectations of:
- lots of action
- episodic fighting missions
- something similar to GANTZ in terms of fights, violence and relationships between the characters.
I'd like to say I was half proven right ^_^

( Spoilrs )Collapse )

Overall: I was entertained and I really enjoyed what I saw but it wasn't enough; it felt like one big introduction to this world and I need a part 2 asap! This was a VERY highly produced product (yet another big budget movie from Japan!) and it was visually pleasing and the CG was great and the end song is so catchy! I was very impressed by the English in this too. Didn't need to read the subtitles for most of that time they spoke English but of course there were a few dodgy pronouncing parts xD second movie please?

SO I finally, after about 4 months, decided to give Ghost another chance. I've been ill the past few days so all I've wanted to do is sleep and binge watch TV and I've watched everything else up-to-date so it was finally time to give Ghost another go...

Now before I give you any details or anything let me just tell you about episode 29: I am in FUCKING tears right now. I am COMPLETELY heartbroken! What the actual fuck?!?!?!!?!?! IS ANYONE ELSE WITH ME?! Oh my god....

Now let's do the positives:

1. I admit, I think because of the fact that I HATED Ninninger so much, it unfortunately meant Ghost always got the end of my rage every time it's episode finally came on after Sentai. So that's why I don't think I enjoyed ghost in the beginning and what ultimately led me to stop watching it.
2. I like Dark Specter's look
3. The bad guys are GOLD. Both in that I love their characters AND their actors.
4. Once again we're seeing bad guys where some aren't 100% all that bad.
5. Fucking love Cubi!
6. Alain and his actor are HOT as FUCK!!! Holy shit. I'll henshin with him any day <3
7. Alain's character arc and internal battle has been great to watch and see his progression through the series <3 his new clothes are cute too... (Fumi-baa *cries*)
8. Alain and Takoyaki <3
9. The fact that neither Kanon nor Alain no longer deny when people mistake them for boyfriend and girlfriend. It's kinda cute haha
10. I like the more minor characters a lot too like Shibuya and Narita and Fumi-baa (FUMI-BAA!! *cries*)
11. Takoyaki
12. The Dai Kaigan transformation look is pretty cool.
13. I like how more realistic the days and time is going this time around since Takeru got his new 99 day limit.


The negatives:

1. Akari can still go fucking die. She still annoys the fuck outta me.
2. I finally see why people dislike Onari and yet I also dislike him too. But still Akari gets more hate from me.
3. Kanon can also jump off a cliff. Not in a 'I hate her way' but more of a she's not needed at all. She bores me and I don't really care for her.
4. I don't really care for Makoto either. He looks better since he got rid of his awful korean hairstyle, but... he's there and I understand why he's there but I'm not all that emotionally attatched nor really care if he's there.
4.5. I'm not all THAT emotionally attatched to the story or the characters. The only characters I care about are Alain, Fumi-baa and Cubi (and two of those have already been ripped from me). Everyone else? I wouldn't be bothered if they got killed, yes even Takeru. I don't even care care about his mission nor that the bad guys are trying to destroy/ruin earth. So yes, unfortunately, no major attatchement from me to this show still.
5. The intro song really isn't that great. It's not bad but it's not the best. << maybe this is because I just marathoned 10+ episodes in one go hence why this opinion is rather mild.
6. When Takeru had his little brat moment when he refused to fight while Makoto and Alain get beaten to shit. THAT pissed me right off. But I'm glad he got punched and came back to his sense.
7. Why did Cubi have to leave?!?!?!? *cries*
8. Episode 29!!! Spoilers >> WHY THE FUCK HAVE YOU KILLED FUMI-BAA OFF?!?!?! NOOOOOO!!!!! This has just fucking ripped my heart apart!


I still stand by the fact that this is one of the weaker KRs that I've seen but at least this time around I've been able to see more of the good in it. Which is what's important right?! xD

Kool! So let's discuss Ghost below! Did I hurt your heart again daftdragon?

I already posted this on tumblr but also wanted to bring it over here.
So me and Tina were obviously discussing plays yesterday and she asked me what actors I was keeping an eye on and at the time I only told her a few but since then I’ve thought more about it so I thought I’d let you know the full list including when they first caught my eye, what I’m watched them in since and when I’ll probably let them go (not in a negative way but I would’ve seen them enough to make a decision as to how I think their career will go, because I don’t have/keep favourites except Yanagishita Tomo and KAT-TUN).

*Btw, what I mean by Keeping an Eye on is that I am physically going out and spending money to see them and on them (e.g. goods). Once I ‘let them go’ I’ll still watch the stuff they produce that comes out on DVD but I won’t make the effort to see them in a stage just because they’re in it after they’re off the list (I have another post coming up explaining the whole ‘Watching Stage Plays’ system I have set up in my head).




1. Maeyama Takahisa - Kept an Eye on Since August 10th-ish (since D-Live 2015). Watched in D-Live, Yuhiden, Binan KouKou LOVE, Handsome Rakugo. Will be watching in Caramel Box with Jinnai Sho in June and in D-Stage 19th Shakespeare. Previously watched in Kamen Rider Wizard years ago. While I’ve seen a LOT of his stuff (which I hadn’t realised!!) I still don’t feel confident in his career so will probs keep an eye on him til the end of the year if he has anything after Shakespeare. I just need to see a little more of his range and performance.




2. Ikeoka Ryousuke - Kept an Eye on Since Yuhiden (October 2015). Watched in Yuhiden, Litchi Hikari Club, Corpse Party (movie), Naritai Jibun ni Nare, . Currently working through Tenimyu Season Two so been watching his performances in that closely too. Will be seeing him in the next Corpse Party movie which comes out in July/August. But he has nothing currently planned after that. I’ll keep an eye on him until at least the end of the year. He seems to have one of the more quiet careers which worries me but I’ve been very satisfied by his perfomances and range so far. But I do want to see him with a few more gigs (and a bit more weight btw!) before I let him go. If he lets me go - he’s the only one who’s really fighting in my head to become a favourite.




3. Izaki Ryujiro - Kept an Eye on Since Comic Jack (February 2016). I’ve seen him in a few things before this year but he caught my eye (obviously) in Comic Jack and have since seen him in Dance with Devils and the DVD version of his team’s solo Tenimyu live, and will be seeing him in Dream Live this month and in Shakespeare in July(?). I’ll probably let him go once I’ve seen him in Shakespeare and in the Adekan DVD. He’s got a bright future in my opinion and I think he’ll be majorly popular (if he isn’t already) so I’m confident enough in him that he doesn’t need me to worry about him xD




4. Aramaki Yoshihiko - Kept an Eye on Since Binan Koukou LOVE (February 2016). He caught my eye as Ryuu-sama in Binan KouKou (I am a SUCKER for guys in pink okay and he was VERY pink. Plus he has cute knees! << I know it’s weird shhh!). I literally have watched NOTHING else from this boy yet BUT I will be getting the Touken Ranbu DVD and goods and I WILL be seeing him in Sengoku Musou and I’ll probably be following him until at least next February depending on how busy he gets.




5. Yasukawa Junpei - Kept an Eye on Since Dance with Devils (February 2016). He was in Ayakashi but I didn’t know about him until I saw him in Dance with Devils and he was playing Shiki <3 and I LOVE Shiki! I;ve since gone back to watch him properly in Ayakashi. I’ve still yet to see him in Tenimyu. I’m probably gunna keep him on this list for a long time cos he just recently left his company so is currently under no company (I think Maki-chan is the same o_O) which worries me a little. He’s very busy for the time being and I hope he will continue to get busy after August but I’ll keep him here just in case he doesn’t get as busy with work as I hope.




6. Shiramata Atsushi - Kept an Eye on Since BASARA (February 2016). I don’t know what interested me in Shira- no wait, now I remember. I rewatched D-Live 2015 when it finally came out on DVD and I noticed this loud annoying guy that was with Shin-chan and Omi and for some reason I was completed intrudged by him even though he would normally be a guy i despise but the fact he acted like he had an ego but could become so embarrassed so easily is what drew me to him. So I went to BASARA and he played a loud guy, exactly what I expected but then I saw him at the after talk and he was so funny and once again something happened that made him embarrassed and I found it so cute! Then I went to Paranoia Circus where I got my first taste of him not being loud and egotistic in a way xD and I was really impressed by his performance in it, and then I saw him in Fairy Tail and then I will see him in BASARA. I will eventually get around to Giam which he’s in but I will let him off this list once BASARA is done. I am confident in his acting and will try and watch the other things he’s been in when/if I get chance, if they have DVDs. (I really liked his trio moment in TRUMP too).

I think that’s about it. Just those 5 6... I thought I had like a list of 10 people but turns out no.

SO!

Who’ll be next? I honestly don’t know. I considered some but then chose not to; here’s why:


( Potentials and Who Missed Out )Collapse )

And that’s the last for now! If you have any actors you’re keeping an eye on let me know!

Chihayafuru Kami no Ku


Now I haven't read the manga but I love Mackenyu and Nomura so I HAD to see this. Also we all know I'm a sucker for high school romance xD

( Karuta <3 )Collapse )



---

Overall: I really enjoy this movie! The concept interests me, the character arcs were great and you could see a real development in them. The competitions were shot well and very suspenseful. I was very emotional for this movie and I had a real connection with one of the characters. The ending killed me and I need(ed) more asap! The only negative is the small amount of Mackenyu we get in this first film ='[

I was kindly invited by a coworker and his wife to watch a play on Saturday 23rd April and so I couldn't say no! It's a lot different to what I'm used to because it's BIG names who are more well known with the older generation and on tv, and a SMALL stage.




The story is based around a guy who gets arrested for drugs and then it turns out that somone he knows and someone who he had previously been caught for stalking has been murdered alongside her mother and brother, and thus he becomes the prime suspect of a murder(s). Throughout the 2 and a bit hours of the play, we slowly see his 11 days in interrogation and how he breaks down and slowly the story comes out and we see what judgement or saving he gets in the end.

( More Below )Collapse )

Overall: Very different to what I normally watch and you need a lot of concentration and it's a very slow paced, dark story with lots of backstories and it's very deep and depressing. It will mentally and emotionally drain you. But I loved all the characters, I found the story completely interesting and the ending broke me! It defo leaves an impression on you. I was very impressed and will probs keep an eye on the company who produced this.

About time I made my review about this! Watched it about... 4 weeks ago? So here I am!


Assassination Classroom: Graduation



I was SO looking forward to seeing this and I even forced my coworker to watch part one the night before if they wanted to watch this movie with me the next day! I really enjoyed part one and was before nervou and excited to see this second and concluding part! As usual: SPOILERS!


( Gay moments of course )Collapse )



---

Overall: If you watched part 1 then of course please watch this concluding chapter BUT, it is a disappointing final installment. It was well shot, some great action scenes but overall, too slow and the fun and magic of the first film just weren't there. Least there's gay-ish moments though ^_^

Watched this on Friday 22nd April! ^_^ Also it's important you all know: My first stage play in 42 days!!!


舞台「おやすみジャック・ザ・リッパー」メインビジュアル


Unfortunately it looks like this isn't getting a DVD (if it is, let me know!) which is a shame because it was SO much fun and it had a lot of elements that I enjoyed.

Where to start with this... I've read all the current manga chapters out for this stage and while they're incorprate the basic structure and plot of the manga, they added two new stories which aren't in the manga at all! Of course the main point is 'try and get tickets to move from hell and go to heaven by being the best shop' but the added in the Grim Reapers back story (which was hilarious!) and The Ring who ended up being a guy and not a girl and that was hilarious too. More on that later.. let's tread back a bit.

How close did I wanna be? XD I still needed glasses to see their faces perfectly though >_<


( Let the hilarity ensure )Collapse )


Overall: This was a great play and very enjoyable with lots of laughter and dokidoki moments because I was SO close to the front and also Wolfy kept looking at me and he's my favourite character <3 Shota's definitely NOT photogenic but is BEAUTIFUL in real life <3 shame this isn't getting a DVD because it's 2 hours of enjoyment and laughter with some heartful parts thrown in. It did feel a bit 'missing' because there are only 8 chapters of the manga out but I like how they wrapped it up.

This is a little different for me but I still wanted to see it! I saw it yesterday ^_^

I am a Hero



I originally thought this would be a zombie comedy judging by the trailer and the fact that it's supposed to be about a normal guy becoming a hero due to being thrown into a zombie apocalypse but, it turned out to be a lot more gory, slow paced and serious, which was a suprise and a nice surprise. Let's get into more details. Remember, possible SPOILERS!

( My love for Hiromi and Hideo! )Collapse )


---

Overall: Very high produced movie with great SFX and zombie make up! Focused a lot more on the human emotions and was a lot darker than I was expecting. I really enjoyed the main characters but unfortunately the film let a lot of questions go unanswered and there was no real resolution which is a shame =[

Yes I have skipped over Orphans! I am bit by bit writing that review but I can't let it stop me from getting anymore behind! SO here is the play I saw next after Orphans on March 1st = Paranoia Circus! So turns out I did make ANY notes of Paranois Circus on my phone - eek! So let's hope I remember what the hell happened and it turns out I didn't tweet about it at all! Which makes it seem like I didn' enjoy it - I did!! < spoiler! but now to remember... *opens up pamphlet*


I remember before the show that the line for the goods was MASSIVE and the even had to open a little 'no extrance' stairwell so more people could line up xD AND there were loads of people preordering the DVD before the show even started! I understand that there's some huge stars and names in the show but I was like, it can't be that good can it... and I underestimated this play!




The play itself ended up being a great story with amazing acting, VERY funny and I enjoyed the plot and the twists and omg the beginning and ending were amazing!
About 5 minutes before the show was set to start Takeuchi Naofumi came out and started walking along the rows at the front. He was completely in character, doing the odd walk and everything and he was telling jokes and smiling at people and then he started a game where he started at the beginning side of one row, gave his clock (yes cLock!) to the person in the first seat and the had to pass it down to the end of the row before he got to the other side. He lost each time xD He was like 'you're doing it too fast!' xD eventually the light darkened and a chair came out explaining the rules and such (yes a talking chair!) and he asked a guy on the front row to come on stage and sit on it - at first we all thought he was just a normal audience viewer - but once he was in the chair, they pulled the chair with him in it behind the curtain and he never returned to his seat - SO he must have been in the cast and I'm convinced it was Ozawa Ryota's butler who was played by Horiike Naotaka.
They opened up with a song, which they also redid right at the end as an encore and it's very enjoyable! <3

( Review and pictures )Collapse )

Overall: I can understand why people were preordering this BEFORE we even went it! It had a great story with mystery, suspense and some shockers. The casting was starclass, full of Tokusatsu actors and everyone did an amazing job. The characters themselves were all very different and interesting! I loved the staging and I loved whenever Suzuki/Lupin and Ozawa/Edogawa were fighting xD I wish the DVD weren't so expensive (I think it's 9000 yen!) cos I'd love to see this again and drool all over Lupin again hehe
