Boku wa Ashita, Kinou no Kimi to Date Suru (Tomorrow, I Will Date With Yesterday’s You) Movie Recap
I’m on hyper drive. Yay! I finally found time to finish this one. It has been hibernating in my drafts for a year and I’m super glad to share this awesome movie with you guys.
The movie’s storyline captivated me. It’s like a fusion of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, two of my favorite movies of all time. Just a little advice if you want to watch the movie yourself though, you have to be very patient on how the story unfolds itself. You may find some scenes strange at first but everything will be answered one by one towards the end. I think it’s the main reason why it didn’t feel draggy at all. Plus, there’s an added element of Sci-fi into it. All in all, it’s not your typical romance movie and despite the frustrating ending, it’s still the best ending the OTP could ever have.
Truly, great love finds ways. No matter how impossible or how brief it is for you to be together, if you really love someone, you will grasp every opportunity you get.
Kyou no Kira-kun (Closest to Heaven) Movie Recap
Yes, I’m alive! Gawd, I miss posting recaps in this blog. It has been centuries. Okay that was an exaggeration. But anyways, if you’re curious what got me busy for months, well, I gave birth to twins! Yay! I had a very rough pregnancy and my twins were premature. But now that they’re almost 7 months old and super healthy, I guess I can go back to blogging. Posting may not be as frequent as before but at least there’s an update.
Kyou no Kira-kun is a live-action adaptation of a manga of the same title. The story revolves around the life of an introvert high schooler, Ninon Okamura and her popular next-door neighbor and classmate, Yuiji Kira. Unfortunately, Kira is sick and only has a year to live. When Ninon knew of this, she tried to befriend him and promised to be with him until the end. Eventually, they fell in love. But will their time-bounded love have a happy ending?
