JMovie Review: Rurouni Kenshin Finale

Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno

The first movie in the live action Kenshin series was pretty awesome. The next two movies (Kyoto Inferno and The Legend Ends) both ratcheted up the awesomeness even more! The acting was superb (for the most part) and the action sequences are great and not as bad as some movies with the overly obvious wire work that defies the laws

JMovie Review: Say “I Love You”

Fukushi Sota, Kawaguchi Haruna

There are tons of dramas and movies that are based on manga. Say “I Love You” is another manga turned into a live action that was released in 2014.

One of the best things about the series was the super

ATARU the Movie Coming Soon!

The actor (whose name I’m conveniently forgetting right now, but he’s a SMAP member) who played Chokozai really did an amazing job and I really loved the chemistry and dynamics of our team. Here’s hoping the movie will be good. The previews were intense and worrisome. Horikita Maki comes on as

JMovie: Kuroshitsuji aka Black Butler

Goriki Ayame, Mizushima Hiro

It’s inevitable really. I get excited when I learn that something I have read is coming to life. Well…I actually haven’t read much of the Black Butler series, but I have enjoyed the anime immensely. Plus, I’ve watched both musicals starring Matsushtia Yuya in the role of Sebastian. For whatever reasons, I was cautiously happy about learning of the live
