Q: Hi! I was wondering if you could recommend any movies that pull at my heart strings that end happily or sad. I've watched 1 Litre of Tears, Koizora, Be With You, Playful Kiss, *Hana Yori Dango (in all languages), I Give My First Love To You, My Girl and I,A Millionaire’s First Love and some others. Any recommendations? And I recommend any of the ones I listed if you haven't seen those! c:

Movie Review: Kyou, Koi wo Hajimemasu

Movie: Kyou, Koi wo Hajimemasu

Genre: Romantic Comedy

Language: Japanese

Cast:

  • Emi Takei as Tsubaki Hibino
  • Tori Masuzaka as Kyota Tsubaki
Synopsis

Tsubaki Hibino (Emi Takei) is a young teenage girl with a talent for styling other people’s hair. Yet, Tsubaki suffers from low self-esteem and isn’t very comfortable styling her own hair. She also has a tendency to dress old-fashioned. She’s teased at high school because of this.

One day, popular male student Kyota Tsubaki (Tori Matsuzaka) targets Tsubaki for teasing. Kyota Tsubaki holds sway over the entire classroom and is quite a playboy. Inexplicably they fall in love. Meanwhile, Kyota Tsubaki has commitment issues …

My Review

Another Japanese Live Action based off of a popular manga, we all know how much I love these. 

Kyou, Koi wo Hajimemasu entails your typical high school, popular intelligent hottie falls for the country bumpkin turned beauty. So yes, we’ve all heard the plot, have it memorize, know the outcome. 

What I love about Kyou, Koi wo Hajimemasu is the one issue I had with the live action. 

It failed to deliver my one expectation. The problem I find in many live actions is that they always tried to work the entire manga, which most of the time is over 50 chapters, into a two hour time frame. 

You can’t do that, and so you skim over important character developments leaving me feeling a little empty. 

Even through all this, I still can’t say this movie wasn’t enjoyable. Within the first few minutes I realized that I had to completely divorce myself from the manga, and I found myself smiling at the sweet and endering moments between Hibino and Tsubaki. 

If you are looking for a fluffy romance, this movie is for you. If you wanted to see this movie because you’re an avid fan of the manga, this movie isn’t for you unfortunately.

"I like you, Sooha. As a brother, friend, and as a man. After I started to like you, I hate your power, and I’m afraid of it. It’s uncomfortable that there are so many feelings I want to hide from you. I think I’m going to blame you whenever you read my thoughts and know about my hidden feelings. But I get horrified when I think about you getting hurt because of me blaming on you. Not only that, but there are so many reasons why we can’t be together. We need to figure them all out. But I still like you. A lot. So let’s not waste our time thinking about the end of us. Let’s look into each other’s eyes, laugh together, and be honest to each other."

It’s from the Japanese manga turned Live Action Kyou Koi Wo Hajimemasu!

Your typical good girl Tsubaki Hibino begins her roller coaster of a relationship with the school’s prince and bad boy Kyouta Tsubaki. 

The manga is one of my absolute favorites so I have high expectations from the live action.

DramaChomp! Last Cinderella

Synopsis:

Women today can sometimes forget about their gender, as they devote themselves deeper and deeper into their career. Among such women, some suffer overwork, unbalance of hormones, hair loss and the likes. In fact, few women even experience the growth of a thick mustache! According to a survey, there have been results indicating that about 60% of women feeling that they were “turning male” in the past. At 29, these women only had to be concerned with marriage or work, but at 39, the time limit draws nearer, with increased concerns of pregnancy, divorce, aging parents, and change of job.

"Last Cinderella" will depict the reality of these women, who try their best to live each day to their fullest. Playing the main character, a 39 year old female hair stylist Toyama Sakura is Shinohara Ryoko. Sakura meets a handsome younger man, Saeki Hiroto at a party and is drawn to him. A BMX rider since age 20, Hiroto’s income is dependent on his performance, which means that his pay is unstable. As he gets to know Sakura, he is slowly drawn to her as well. Then there is Tachibana Rintaro, Sakura’s boss and good friend, Takenouchi Miki, Sakura’s best friend who suffers from a sexless marriage, and Hasegawa Shima, the other best friend who is addicted to sex, and finally a regular customer to the hair salon, Ooami Chiyoko who is in love with Rintaro. It’s a modern heart-thumping love comedy that’s sure to make you smile!  —Fuji TV

Cast

  • Shinohara Ryoko as Toyama Sakura
  • Miura Haruma as Saeki Hiroto
  • Otsuka Nene as Takenouchi Miki
  • Endo Shozo as Takenouchi Kohei
  • Nanao as Ogami Chiyoko
My Review
Honestly I was hesitant to recommend this drama. Because I’d rather not fight off any more people looking to snag Miura Haruma from my clutches. 
I’ve only had the privilege of watching a few episodes and I’m already intrigued by the simple plot line. I am worried that it’s going to play into the predictable flow of most dramas.
But I adore Haru’s acting and I love the idea of him playing a playboy wooing Sakura.
There are many questions left up in the air as of now, and I’m hoping for more character developments in the next episode or so. 
For now, I’ll simply enjoy the many shirtless Haru scenes and watching how this story unfolds.
