Tokyo Shounen

Wow, all I can is wow after watching this movie. The storyline is so good, and the acting is superb. Sadly, there are only Chinese subs, and they’re simplified too. I can read only a little bit of Chinese, and simplified Chinese isn’t my strong point too. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the movie a lot.

Not your usual love story.

Summary:

Minato befriends Night whom she thought is a boy her age. Yes, a boy, and she sends letters to him. That’s how they communicate. Then, Minato fell for this guy, and she told Night about it. Night gets agitated…coz he likes Minato. and so, begins this weird/awkward love triangle.

I can’t wait for this movie! I think it’s gonna be superb, given this good storyline. I just love movies with mental illness characters. Especially those that has personality disorders. I like it when actors/actresses are given a more challenging role to act as different or altogether the opposite personalities.

Ostuka Ai – Planetarium

Release Date: September 21, 2005

Tracklist:

1. Planetarium
2. drop.
3. Planetarium (Instrumental)
4. drop. (Instrumental)

Planetarium has to be my favourite song from Otsuka (and the first song I’ve heard from her too, in the Japanese Drama, Hana Yori Dango). First, the drums begin the piece, then a deut between the flute and piano take over until Otsuka starts singing. This would have been so much better if she actually put some emotions into this song (makes it more heartbreaking too). Eh, too bad then. The lyrics are so romantic and cliched, but so depressing at the same time. The speaker (wow, poetry terms much?) wants to reach the person they love, but they are too far away. I love the melody the most though. It’s just gorgeous.

The b-side, drop., brings us back to the pop-rock style that Otsuka is so fond of. Her voice seems heavily mixed, and it sounds kiddier than usual (which slightly scares me). This song is so happy; happy to the point where it is starting to scare me.

Overall Rating:
4/5

Nabari no Ou – Ep. 1

Wow, I’m really impressed with this anime, and I haven’t even read the manga for it yet. This totally owns Naruto in the ninja catagory, and the art is way better too. One would think it was a shoujo series because of its art, but it is actually a shounen series. Not that I know anyone who watches it that is male though…

BoA – Every Heart -Minna no Kimochi-

Release Date: March 13, 2002

Tracklist:

1. Every Heart -minna no kimochi-
2. Every Heart (English Version)
3. LISTEN TO MY HEART (Ken Harada’s TB-Bassin’ Remix)
4. Every Heart -minna no kimochi- (Instrumental Version)

Yeeesh, yeesh, this is the Inuyasha song: Every Heart -minna no kimochi-. I like the chorus bit, which is repetitive, but catchy (surprising, this song doesn’t start with the chorus). BoA’s voice sounds thicker here, but it also sounds like she’s having some vocals problems. The song itself has quite a beautiful that sings nicely, typical of a ballad.

The English version is really hard to understand, due to BoA’s not so great English. At first, I thought it was some other language, before I concentrated really hard and realized it was English. Meh, maybe if someone with better English sang it, I might like it better.

Overall Rating:
3/5
