Another year has passed and hide has been gone for 13 years. Now, he has to share this day with Osama bin Laden. Feels so strange. 不思議.

I am trying this out because for some reason, I cannot locate the uploader on the main MU site. Strange, isn't it? If anyone knows, please let me know. In the meantime, I shall use this.

The plot to this movie is very simple.

Girl, Rio, is only 17 and had a traumatic past which causes her to think only for herself and make friends with those whom she can use. One fine day she meets Boy, Kouki, who is a 35-year-old university history professor and falls in love with him. However, for some reason, he is unable to love her back.

A really straightforward, simple love story but yet it still touched me. I usually prefer something more complicated. Maybe because life has been quite complicated recently. A simple and innocent love story suddenly becomes more appealing.












Watch the trailer here.
22nd-Jun-2010 11:26 pm - Arashi 「MONSTER」
 OK, so this song isn't that new anymore. But I like it because it's peculiar. There is a mesh of songs in this one. The intro reminds of Arashi's own song "Truth", which sounds a little like the intro for the Mission Impossible Theme. The verse reminds me of the classical piece "In the Hall of the Mountain King". Then the chorus goes into the usual bubblegum-pop but the chords used were interesting, to say the least. Just when I thought that was it, the 3/4 waltz-like musical interlude threw me off. I like music that springs surprises. And this is one of them.

MONSTER. Enjoy the high quality video. (I won't bother with lyrics this time. There should be plenty online by now.)

When I went to Kyoto last month, I was walking along this river, Kamogawa, when I suddenly remembered this particular rendition of the song.

Re-watching the video, I realised that I had walked along the very same path Gackt and You were performing at. The song is particularly touching because this river is famous for lovers to take a walk together. Gackt sang it by the river once about 10+ years ago on Christmas Eve when he had nobody special in his life. He then called You out, even though he was attached at that time and You turned up with his guitar and they sang this song. This video was of Gackt and You singing it again, probably for fun and to reminiscence that moment.


Below are the full lyrics. (Gackt didn't sing everything.)
作詞/作曲:森友嵐士
Lyrics, Music: Moritomo Arashi

今 オマエをこの腕に 抱きたくて せつないよ
ima omae o kono ude ni dakitakute setsunai yo
Now, embracing you in these arms is very heartrending
会いたい気持(とき)が どれ程つらいかと 問いかけてた
aitai toki ga dorehodo tsurai kato toikaketeta
I began to ask how much more painful is it to want to meet you

ひとりきりの夜ならば 今すぐに 会いに行くよ
hitorikiri no yoru naraba ima sugu ni aini yuku yo
On a night when I'm alone, I want to see you immediately
遠ざかる二人の距離 追いかけて 慰めてた
toozakaru futari no kyouri oikakete nagusameteta
I was comforted to chase after the great distance between us

諦めるよりも 信じることに
akirameru yori mo shinjirukoto ni
Rather than giving up, I want to be embracing
賭けてみる思いを 抱きしめていたい
kaketemiru omoi o dakishimeteitai
the thing that I believe in and thought of risking it

恋する程にとけてく ため息が またひとつ

While falling in love has been freed, there is one more thing to sigh about
いつも強がるばかりの涙さえ こぼれそうサ
itsumo tsuyogaru bakari no namida sae kobore sou sa
Even the tears that were always just trying to be tough have escaped

あふれる想いを 今さら 投げかけてみるよ
afureru omoi o ima sara nagekakete miru yo
My overflowing thoughts are new now, I'll try to throw them

Everything doesn't seem to have changed

8th-Feb-2010 04:54 pm - Bloody Monday Season 2 Episode 3
Hmm...what can I say?

**WARNING** SPOILERS AHEAD!Collapse )

Next episode.

"That person is still alive." I wonder who. Anzai?

"折原マヤ、死す." (Orihara Maya, to die) I wonder if it'll be true this time.

Trivia:
「魔弾の射手」 which literally means "Magic Bullet Shooter", is the name of the terrorist group in season 2. And this name isn't plucked out from the sky. It is actually an opera "Der Freischütz", written by Carl Maria von Webber. You can find out more here.
1st-Feb-2010 11:12 pm - Bloody Monday Season 2 Episode 2
This episode has a lot of action but only 3 main points to the plot were revealed.

**WARNING** SPOILERS AHEAD!!Collapse )

Next episode looks like more guessing games. Is everyone really who they are supposed to be?
27th-Jan-2010 03:25 pm - Bloody Monday Season 2 Episode 1
The highly anticipated and much awaited sequel to Bloody Monday started of with a blast. Literally. In season 2, all the cast from season 1 who are still alive were all brought back to THIRD-i from various circumstances to deal with terrorists. Of course. And the timeline set is 2010, 2 years since the first terrorist attempt (i.e., season 1). Some new characters have also been introduced without much introduction.

So, let me introduce the old and new characters in season 2.

**WARNING** SPOILERS AHEAD!!Collapse )

Next episode:
Fujimaru is taunted again by HORNET with the lives of the people he loves. Pictures of Otoya, Haruka, etc. flashed across the screen. In my mind I'm thinking, "Here we go again. How much dumber could Fujimaru get?" A lot, apparently. Is this going to be season 1 all over again? Let's see how episode 2 pulls it off.
