[Movie] I Want to Eat Your Pancreas

Honestly, i never heard of this movie before, even though big names like Oguri Shun and Kitagawa Keiko were in it. But this strangely titled movie kept coming up on my timeline recently, especially about how much it made them cry, so i looked it up out of curiosity. Besides the weird title, it also has a confusing synopsis with its use of first person.

Reading people’s accounts on this live-action made me ready myself to an emotional watch; and while i did cry toward the end, i think it is more of a beautiful and touching story instead of a tearjerker. Continue reading “[Movie] I Want to Eat Your Pancreas”

Repeat: first impression on episode 1~2

“Nobody knows what may happen tomorrow. That’s why we sometimes fail and regret. But if I can start building my life again…”

Normally, i will grow to like a drama’s OST after hearing it played in it, but i actually have it the other way around with Repeat: 10 Months Which Change Fate. I heard bits of the song in the teaser and then went to look the drama up because of that.

Yup, i’d usually list the cast, synopsis, hype/online reviews, or even the writer/PD as the reason for starting a drama, but here, i gave Repeat a go due to its OST. Or more accurately, the artist singing the ending song: Day6. Continue reading “Repeat: first impression on episode 1~2”

VS Arashi: the clay art game

VS Arashi continues to roll out new special games every now and then, and they continue to be a hit or miss for me. Some of my favorites listed here have yet to make a return despite how fun they were, so they probably are a one-time thing, which i’m sad about. But this latest special game has been quite epic, garnered a good laugh from everybody, and played twice now that i suppose it will be in rotation frequently in the future.

I Am Not a Robot: rant on episode 13~20

It has happened before, my wondering if we’re watching the same drama, when others were gushing about how amazing a certain title was and i couldn’t bring myself to be half as excited as them for various reasons. Most of the time, i simply blame it on different tastes and preferences, but sometimes i couldn’t shrug it off when i disagreed with their opinions on the fundamental level. Robot falls on the second category. Continue reading “I Am Not a Robot: rant on episode 13~20”

Every Day6 from Sunrise to Moonrise

When i first heard of Every Day6 project, my first thought was how exciting!, and then what a challenging project.

It surely isn’t easy to produce two songs every single month for the entire year amidst promotional activities that i wonder if they had all of them prepped beforehand. Not because i doubt their capability of making new music while promoting the project but because i wonder how many demos they should’ve prepared to have two of them approved for the subsequent release.
