[sticky post] Help?!  
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 seem to have some OCD about needing to know EVERYTHING about a picture: Date, Person, Year, Type (Magazine/Photoset etc), Magazine Name.

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!

Remember: SPOILERS!

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

Yep my ranking is finally here! xD

1. JET - Do I need to explain why this is first place? It's freaking AMAZING!!! I feel so powerful and hyped when I listen to this song!! I SO wish they were performing this at 10Ks but they're not =[ I love every moment of this song! Every part is my favourite part!
2. GREATEST JOURNEY - I was stuck between this and UNLOCK taking 2nd place but this one wins only slightly. I feel this song is yet it fits them perfectly especially when we think of the silly and stupid things they get up to xD and the PV is great!! OMG when Ueda holds up the TakoYaki xD I love the Kame and Maru's first lines in this song <3 I also love the dorky dance in this xD It's just a really great feel good song and instantly puts me in a good mood - it's pretty fun to sing at Karaoke too haha
3. UNLOCK - YAMANEKO! I love the opening to this even though I have no idea what Kame whispers at the beginning xD I really like the PV for this too. They used so many camera techniques in it and it was very cool!! This song also puts me in a good mood. But damn, have you seen the lyric? The amount of English and the actual grammar and sentences in English don't exactly make sense xD And it's difficult to sing at Karaoke. BUT I love this song and reminds me of YamaNeko every time and we all know how much I love YamaNeko!! I really like Ueda's voice in this song =] I love the instrumental part towards the end too and Kame's little moment after it 'oh come on baby' <3
4. 雨に咲く哀、夜に泣く藍 - I love the melody to this song <3 I really like the chorus too <3 I just... I love every part of this song too! I was marathoning the GANTZ manga one time while I listened to this song, so (kind unfortunately) I get depressing images of people ripping monsters to shreds in my head while I listen to this. This song also strangely reminds me of all the times I've gone to see stage plays and so everytime I listen to this I remember all the theatres I've been to, see myself going to my seat and watching the different plays on stage - I don't know why my head has linked this song to stage plays cos I haven't been to any since this single came out o_O My favourite two parts are the lower, quiet parts at the end of the Chorus and of course Kame's solo moment towards the end ^_^
5. HONESTY - this song is nice and calming and I think is a good spring song ^_^ it reminds me of a spring sunny day whenever I listen to this.Kame's solo at 3:20 <3


Yes, as you can tell I LOVE this single <3


Here are the member cards I got in mine and of course I got the YamaNeko UNLOCK special CD too with the (I wanna say) drink mat! ^_^

What did you think of this single??
 
 
 
Mystical_Powers
It's that time again when all the new, shiny things are starting!! Just like last time I'll list what I am hoping and want to see through out the season (full list and inital interests here). So lets get cracking!!

[ Winter 2016 / Spring 2016 / Summer 2016 / Autumn 2016]


1. Watashi Kekkon dekinai janakute, Shinai desu - Well this was an obvious choice from the start so no need to explain myself here ^_^



2. Good Partner - Seriously that has me SO intreged and I've not seen a legal dorama since Legal High. I'm expecting it to be part serious, part comedy so we'll see!



3. Seirei no Moribito - This is is seemingly only 4 episodes a year for the next 4 YEARS! So I'll wail til season one is completed (cos it finishes in two weeks!) and possibly watch the first season. But I really don't like the idea of having to wait 4 years to get the full story... seemingly this was an anime too?



4. Dias Police - but ONLY if I have time. This is going to be more of a 'back-up' if one of the other dramas really don't mesh with me.
5. KR Ghost, SS Zyuohger, SS Tokyuuger, KR Amazons - Ghost is nearly up to where I want it to be before I start marathoning through it, so hopefully before May I'll be back on attempting to watch it (even though I've already been majorly spoiled for March 27th's episode!). I started Tokyuuger during the winter season and I am in LOVE with it! I cannot get enough but I'm taking my time because I don't want it to be over. But seriously, it's SO good! Zyuohger is proving to be interesting too but this stull has like 40 episodes to go - defo not complaining though! If I finish Tokyuuger this season then I'm gunna move onto KR Gaim. It's like the only other Toku I've not seen that's come out in recent years.

Now the anime... I've been in a HUGE anime mood recently so first we'll look at what I'm already currently watching (there's 4) before looking at the newcomers for this season:


One Piece main image

6. One Piece [Episode 670 onwards~] - I haven't watched any for like 2 years so I was about 50 episodes behind when finally picked this back up recently. I've actually cried a few times. Seriously, Cora-san had me BROKEN UP!! So yeah One Piece this time around is affecting me more and I'm enjoying it more.

Hunter x Hunter (2011) main image

7. Hunter x Hunter [40-ish onwards ~] - another I took a 2 year break from and continued off from episode... I wanna say 40-something. This is definitely one I HAVE to be in the mood for (OP I can basically watch whatever mood I'm in) so I'm watching this at a slower pace but I've just gotten onto the Greed Island arc and loving it so far! Episode 64 as of March 30th.

Fairy Tail main image

8. Fairy Tail - I have tickets for the stage play so obviously I gotta do my 'homework' for it. Seemingly the stage story will take place from the anime episode 52. I'm currently on episode 33 so should be able to get through the necessary arc before I see the stage! I have to say, I'm really enjoying FT! I was worried it'd just be a OP rip off but it's very different and I love the characters and I cannot wait and can totally picture Ono, Shuuto and Shira-chan as Loke, Natsu and Grey <3

Prince of Tennis main image

9. Prince of Tennis - I know! I'm finally WATCHING this even though I've been watching the stages for YEARS! Unfortunately this one is taking me the longest to watch. I am definitely preferring the stages to the anime but I think that's mainly cos the anime is such low quality xD Right now I'm on about episode 10 (yeah not far in at all right! But I do rotate between these four anime so one episode per go and I've only been watching POT for about a week). I have to saw; seeing Kaidoh with an orange bandana is weird as hell! xD

Joker Game main image

10. Joker Game - I am ONLY allowing myself to watch this ONCE I've FINALLY watched Kamenashi's Joker Game movie. I have been putting off BOTH his 2015 movies for too long! I am excited to see the anime of it though - yes I already know I'm gunna like these.

Ace Attorney main image

11. Ace Attorney - my sister is a HUGE AA fan and I've played a little of the game and I've seen the movie and I wanna see how well it transitions from a game to an anime. And it probably will translate well because they make anime out of games ALL the time xD

Haven&quot;t You Heard? I&quot;m Sakamoto main image

12. I'm Sakamoto? - The synopsis actually doesn't give much away but I am expecting (and hoping) it's a comedy about just how ridiculous this guy is ^_^ If you've read the manga, let me know!



As for all my 'On-Hold' stuff: I am NOT making any promises. I am SO swamped enough, right? I have enough anime episodes, doramas coming up, I watch a new movie at the cinema almost every Monday AND I'm still VERY behind on my stage reviews. On top of that I've been marathoning the GANTZ manga (380-odd chapters by the way) cos I've been 'reading' it for like 4 years already and in the middle of two books and *dies* I really do have enough on my plate entertainment wise at the minute so all my On-Hold stuff is STAYING on hold and I'm gunna make it a rule to not start ANYTHING new on ANY platform of entertainment until most of my shit is done ^_^ sound good?

And there we have it! My MAHOOSIVE list for Spring 2016 - wish me luck? I need it! xD

What are you watching this season? Let me know below!

06 April 2016 @ 10:54 am
I don't know if you remember or not but I made this post right at the beginning of the season and I talked about what tv and anime I would focus on this season. So now that the winter season is well and truelly over with, let us look at what I accomplished (and didn't) during the season!

The first thing I had on the list was to watch all the SPs that had caught my interest in my Upcoming Winter Doramas post. I'm sorry to say that I only managed to watch ONE of the four SPs I had written down. I had Cho Gentei Nouryoku, Botchan, Ballerino Keiji and Josei Sakka Mysteries Utsukushiki Mitsu no Uso on my list and only managed to watch Ballerino Keiji (review is hopefully coming out within the week!) which is a little fail on my part but I think I've made up for it, as you will see as we go on....

Next we had YamaNeko which I watched and thoroughly enjoyed! (9 out of 10) You can see my review of it here.
Moving onto Himura Hideo; I also watched this entirely and enjoyed it entirely! (8.5 out of 10) Review here.
The fourth item was Watashi wo Hanasanaide... omg what a waste of time that was. 2 out of 10, rage enfilled review here.

Then we have the Tokusatsus:
- KR Ghost which I've decided not to continue until we're at least over the 25 episode mark (and I got spoiled for March 27th episode on tumblr and while it did spark my interest, I was like 'well now I don't need to find out what's going on for a little while longer' oopsies?) and I'm just gunna marathon the episodes and hopefully it'll allow me to enjoy the series.
- SS Ninninger finally finished and man that was a waste of time too. That ending seriously! (Review here).
- Doubutsu Sentai Zyuohger started and I am loving it! I am very happy with it's progress so far and I already feel like we have an actual story and things are already becoming dire! ^_^

Finally I wanted to watch Konoudori (and then if I had time Angel Heart and Downtown Rocket). Konoudori I finished and I absolutely adored and it break and repaired my heart many, many times (review here). I didn't get to continuing Angel Heart or Downtown Rocket because I am REALLY not in the mood for either of them atm =/ but I do intend to complete them eventually ^_^

Now we have the anime and I had three on my list for this season: Sushi Police, Prince of Stride and Jormungand.
Sad to say I was exceedingly disappointed with Sushi Police and dropped it after about 3 episodes (review). Because Sushi Police was so disappointing, I replaced it by watching Boku Dake ga Inai Machi which I enjoyed a lot and I was completely hooked on and was a MUCH better improvement and was completely worth my time! <3 (review)
Prince of Stride was freaking amazing and I cried and enjoyed it so much and I'm SO happy it's getting stage plays! But I seriously need a secon season ASAP. Also Japan: Prince of Stride is popular as HELL but there's still like ZERO merch out for it at Animate - sort yourself out! (review).
Jormungand was part of my 'completing my on hold list' and I completed it and I have to say, it wasn't to my taste completely. Psst. Turns out I didn't write this on my 'reviews to write' list so this one will be out in the future. (4 out of 10)

That's that one post covered. And now I will show a list of EVERYTHING I watched this winter season and their ratings! Hopefully by the time this post is up, ALL my reviews for ALL of them should be up on my LJ ^_^ I am very proud that I managed to watch a lot of anime before seeing their stage play counter part, and I'm also happy I managed to complete 3 things off my 'On Hold' anime list. It's also great that I already have so many 9 out of 10 watches! But not had any 10 out of 10s yet, but the year is still young! I seriously need to get out of this anime-phase I'm currently in though cos I need to get some doramas DOWN xD

Anyway here is the list:

( So proud of myself.. is that weird? )Collapse )


Anime: 8
Dorama: 8
SP: 2
Movie: 15
Total: 33!
Drama to Movie Ratio (Estimate cos I can't math!): 35% to 65% for Movies.

And that's my wrap up for winter!! The Spring 2016 lists should be out soon but before then, check out the general Spring 2016 drama post I made ^_^

What did you watch this season? Any good ones? Anything disappointing? Any recs you got for me? Let me know everything about your winter 2016 watching down in the comments below!
 
 
Mystical_Powers


Finished all my Winter 2016 stuff today (March 30th), finishing off with this one! Let's get this review down!


( Himura x Arisu for life! )Collapse )


---


Overall: This is Japanese Sherlock Holmes, but is very gay between Himura and Arisu! Amazing casting and acting, even down to the guests! Psst. LOTS of Tokusatsu actors are in this!! I really loved Himura and Arisu's relationship. I also liked the humour in this - it made me giggle a lot. I enjoyed the mysteries/crimes a lot even though I could figure them all out pretty much straight away. And this drama (like YamaNeko) definitely had an ending that was NOT really the end - give me a second season right now!

This is my third update of this series of the year and also my third update of it in less than a week (I've wrote all three posts in a week but the times they come out might be different)! But I am determined to catch up! As always, everything except the 'Overall' sections are (possibly) full of SPOILERS!




Corpse Party [Japan - 2015  5/10]

( Kids in a HS alone )Collapse )



Overall: Not the best made movie production and quality but I was definitely creeped and freaked out (I am NOT a horror person) and IkeP was just sexy the entire time <3 But that ending was so confusing and hurtful though!





The Liar and His Lover [ Japan - 2013  8/10 ]

( A story about music and struggles )Collapse )


Overall: I definitely needed more Sato x Kubota in this xD but I really enjoyed thiss greatly and I like how it was about music and the darker themes of the music industry, it's a sweet story, amazing voices and a few tears were dropped.





The Magic Hour [ Japan - 2008  9/10 ]

( High praises to no end! )Collapse )


Overall: This was amazing! This is a VERY highly produced and high quality movie with amazing acting and visuals and music and the comedy and the story was so good and entertaining! Amazing cast and acting too! This director knows what he's doing!







Udagawachou de Matteyou [ 2015 - Japan  6/10 ]

( Cuteness! )Collapse )



Overall: This was so cute and I love how Mario's character was just the sweetest and so supportive! I really like the topic they dealt with and I like how they dealt with it. I wish there'd been more time so we could've learnt about the characters more and I wish we'd had more time to develope their relationship, some parts did feel a bit rushed.

PS. Subs for this are not out yet and I'm currently working with those that ARE making the subs.





Senpai to Kanojo [ Japan - 2015  8.5/10 ]

( The pureness! )Collapse )



Overall: Yoshine's face annoys me, it's has a standard Japanese HS romance plot, and the ending let it down but everything else was so cute, so pure, so heartwarming!! I related immensly to the main girl character which enhanced my enjoyement of the film, and JunJun is just so <3333 in it! I enjoyed this a lot!! I already wanna rewatch this.





Kurosaki-kun no Iinari ni Nante Naranai SP [ Japan - 2015  8.5/10 ]

I thought I'd already revied this on my blog but for some reason I cannot find the post about it at all! Did I fuck up? Oh well here it is coming to you like 4 months late!!


( Too sexy xD )Collapse )


Overall: I loved every moment of this! It's hilarious, ridiculous and all so sexy <3 I love all the characters and the actors in this and it had me squealing like a fangirl a LOT! In a way this plays out every girls fantasy of being outright fought over by two guys xD I found every moment of this and I could not wait to watch me. << I have since watched the film xD

Overall: This had mystery, suspense, action, comedy and the casting is amazing and the story has some shocker twists and it's such an enjoyable watch! If you wanna see amazing acting from Kamenashi Kazuya, this may be one of the best roles he has ever done! OH! If you like cats too then watch it! xD Cos y'know neko = cat xD I enjoyed this thoroughly and I cannot wait to get this on DVD and yes I will defo get the dvds! But before that time I will attempt to read the (4) books of it <3
