NATSUYKI RENDEZVOUS COMPLETE COLLECTION

Posted by RommelS On August - 12 - 2013

NATSUYKI RENDEZVOUSSYNOPSIS:
Hazuki may be near-sighted, but he knows true beauty when he sees it and the delicate form of flower shop owner Rokka draws him in like a bee to honey.  So, hoping to cultivate a relationship between them, Hazuki takes a part-time job at her shop, only to discover two huge thorns preventing the nurturing of any romance.  The first, the fact that Rokka is still grieving for her late husband Shimao, would be enough to snip most men’s ardor short, but it’s the second that really threatens to make Hazuki’s forlorn hopes wilt.  Because while Shimao is most definitely deceased, he hasn’t yet departed, and his spirit is still living in Rokka’s apartment!

 

Except… only Hazuki can see him, which leads to a very strange romantic triangle indeed.  Are Hazuki’s chances with Rokka as dead as the man who still lives in her house?  Or can he somehow make love blossom even though there’s an interloper pushing up the daisies between them?  One way or another, the ground’s going to be rocky and someone or something’s likely to get cut off in the bud!

K-ON! THE MOVIE

Posted by RommelS On August - 5 - 2013

K-ON THE MOVIEAfter two seasons of K-On!, it has now made the leap to the big screen as a 110-minute long feature film. Does this mean that there are any big differences between the series and the movie? No, not really. We still follow the five girls from the Light Music Club as they go about their daily lives. In that regard, the movie feels like a few episodes of the series merged together, albeit with a more elaborate and cohesive story than was usually the case in the series.

TOKYO MAGNITUDE 8.0

Posted by RommelS On August - 5 - 2013

TOKYO MAGNITUDE 8.0SYNOPSIS:
The devastation is unleashed in the span of seconds. Yielding to centuries of unrelenting pressure, an ancient rift in the Earth gives way and a force equivalent to over a thousand atomic bombs erupts beneath the feet of the citizens of the world’s largest mega-cities! For the people of the greater Tokyo area, the results are catastrophic as even “earthquake-proof” buildings sway like weeds in the wind, gas mains rip open in gouts of flame, and huge sections of the city’s vital infrastructure are torn into shreds.

 

For sister and brother Mirai and Yuuki, who were caught in the earthquake while in Odaiba during summer holiday, it’s the start of a desperate journey back to their parent’s home in Setagaya. For motorcycle courier Mari, it means an equally frantic battle towards Sangenjaya and her own daughter and mother. Joining together in an epic odyssey through the mangled streets, these three must brave impossible obstacles and endure unspeakable hardships and heartbreak, with no way of knowing if their loved ones are even still alive.

COLORFUL THE MOTION PICTURE

Posted by RommelS On June - 5 - 2013

COLORFULREVIEW:

“Congratulations! You have won a second chance at life!” That’s what the main character in Colorful is told when he gets to the ‘station’ between this world and the afterlife. He gets to enter the body of Makoto, a boy who was troubled enough to commit suicide at the age of 14. There’s a condition for this second chance, however: he has six months to find out what he did wrong in his own life and repent, something that’s easier said than done when you have no memories of who you are or what your own life was like. If he succeeds, he can stay in Makoto’s body for the rest of his life. If not, he gets taken back to the ‘station’ between this world and the afterlife, possibly being stuck there for all eternity.
