shinigami-kun, finale

Jul. 20th, 2014 | 10:41 pm

In keeping with bad-J-drama tradition,
the last ep singlehandedly redeemed the series from its steady downhill slide.
I loved how everything was set up such that 413's sympathy for humans
was diametrically opposed to his survival.
Ack such great dramatic effect
(I admit, I'm a sucker for self-sacrifice and hard choices).

Pity about the rest of the show though.
At its best (cf. first three eps, finale), the series' heart and occasional insight made up for its flaws.
At its worst -
logical inconsistency after logical inconsistency, thinly-drawn characters, weak scripting.

Sigh. The things I watch for you, Ohno.

Truly magical experience.
Phenomenal solos (the bass vs guitar battles *O*), amazing showmanship all around;
also everyone is so sweet and everyone-besides-Yojiro (lmao) is tiny(!)
and Satoshi is actually pretty good at Chinese lolol.
No Order Made but they did pm all their other hits (Oshakashama is electrifying live, btw)
and everything was perfect.
I wish the gig had been longer (it lasted slightly less than two hours, I think?)
but it was completely worth the price and hoarse throat.

asdfjwer I love them so much. ;;;
COME BACK SOON PLS PLS PLS
(but not too soon because I will feel guilty about splurging again)
(and also not too much later because I might not be in SG)

No Otoko was good.
The synopsis portended cheese, but the film was surprisingly well-made?
It felt like Matsuyuki Yasuko was reprising her role in Mother lol
but excellent acting across the board (including Toma, yes),
beautiful cinematography
(that one shot of Toma limping in and out of the carpark lights -
heartbreakingly-gorgeous lighting ;;),
lovely soundtrack.
And enough excitement and surprises to last me fragile heart a week. ><
(Rn I feel as if a deranged Nikaido Fumi will jump on me and cut out my tongue if I walk into the living room. :(:(
Or - an equally-attractive alternative, clearly - blow up hospitals/public buses. :(:(:( )
