When he gets chased away from his home as the result of a conspiracy against him, Naomitsu flees into the mountains with Ako in tow, but they’re soon attacked by a bandit named Tajomaru (Hiroki Matsukata).

September 12 – Killer Virgin Road

02_killervirginroad

Hiroko (Juri Ueno) is about to get married to the handsome Kenichiro when disaster strikes. Her landlord stops by the happy bride-to-be’s apartment where a pair of wayward scissors falls from a shelf and stabs him in the back as he bends forward to pick something up. His body begins to stiffen even before Hiroko realizes what has happened.

On the road to Mount Fuji where Hiroko intends to dump the corpse, something falls on the hood of her car out of the blue. That “something” is Fukuko Kobayashi (Yoshino Kimura), who is dying to… die. Fukuko believes that she is irredeemably unhappy and has endeavored to commit suicide again and again. As Hiroko and Fukuko begin their journey to abandon the corpse, a weird friendship begins to build.

After many twists and turns, Hiroko walks down the aisle. An airmail delivery arrives for the happy honeymooner, but when Hiroko opens the envelope, the paperknife slips from her hand and it ends up stabbing Kenichiro in the chest. Again, after putting the corpse in her luggage, Hiroko has to run away, but unlike the last time, she is full of hope.

06_boku no

As a child Takuma is diagnosed with a heart condition that requires care from a cardiologist. He soon becomes friends with his doctor’s young daughter Mayu while being treated at the hospital. One day Mayu overhears her father saying that Takuma’s condition is serious enough that he most likely won’t live long beyond the age of 20. Takuma isn’t aware of this himself, however, so at 8-years-old he makes a promise to marry Mayu when they turn 20. Later in life, Takuma (now played by Masaki Okada) becomes aware that he won’t be able to keep this promise and he begins distancing himself from Mayu (Mao Inoue) in hopes of protecting her.

It’s not the first time for me to see Oguri doing a samurai movie but this time I think he has outdone himself in the movie. The trailer says so.

There are two Juri Ueno movies this year and boy I want to see them both. Nodame series is such a hit back then and why will I miss this when her er role in Last Friends is still on my mind until now? She is such a versatile actress.

Electronic Girl is the same production that brought Cyborg Girl which I also adored so probably I will like this one. I got to add some future/ apocalyptic genres into my choices or else everything’s plain.

Kenichi in Kamui will be his first ninja movie. I loved him as L in Death Note and in the Detroit Metal City series. I guess he won’t fail me here.

Mao Mao Mao… I miss her. I still can’t forget about her and Jun Matsumoto though. Kyaaah~~! Boku no Hatsukoi wo Kimi ni Sasagu’s story is just similar to Koizora and sometimes I just need a good cry in a movie.

So Jae, will you go out & watch all of them with me?

*one*

*one*

Okay then only one. And the question is what movie? (X__X)
