The movie, Principal : 恋する私はヒロインですか? was released on 3rd March 2018 and the DVD was released on 3rd October 2018.

Synopsis:

The story revolved around a girl named Sumimoto Shima who moved from Tokyo to Sapporo because she didn't get along well with his third stepfather. She decided to stay with her father who she hadn't meet for years.
As she entered the new school, she encountered with a boy with a not-so-good attitude, Gen, a sweet cheerful girl, Haruka and a soft-polite boy, Wao.
Gen and Wao were inseparable childhood friends, despite the different personalities that they had.
It was a movie of teenage love and friendship, and a bit of family ties.

Casts:


Kuroshima Yuina as Sumimoto Shima
Kotaki Nozomu as Tatebayashi Gen
Takasugi Mahiro as Sakurai Wao



My opinion on the movie:

1. I just love the scenery....be it when it was snowing or during the summer time. it gives me a cool yet warm feeling of the whole movie.
2. The story flow was quite rush but it was not too rush. In about 2 hours, you can get few stories about each of the characters. I do enjoy the flow but it would've been good if the flow was a bit slow.
3. The scenes were nice...There were less romantic scenes....
4. The interaction between the characters were good too....I just love any movies with no outstanding villains in it...in this movie, Haruka might be a bit dark at the beginning but she changed and became a good friend to Shima....
5. Overall casts were doing their good job. Gen was so normal...too normal that he'll make your heart skips....Wao is so sweet but not overly sweet...Shima was just an ordinary cute girl....Haruka was sweet too...and cute....

My opinion on Nozomu as Gen:

I watched the movie before I read the manga. So, my opinion is based on Gen's character in the movie. Obviously, the manga's Gen was a lot better. I'm not a good judge when it comes to acting. I just like the character if it fits the movie of it fits my preferences. What I really love about Gen is how he was a normal guy. Even though he should be like a prince-like person (like most of the manga heroes should be), Gen was different. The aura of a prince was not there. Why do I say he was normal? Because he reacted to things just like how a guy would do. He smiled, he laughed, he had clueless moments and he did get angry.
And the timing for him to realize that he loved Shima too was so late. You can only see his feelings towards Shima at the very end of the movie.
His love for Wao was so strong. I just like how Gen treated Wao as his younger brother. I can't describe well but they really potrayed the friendship well.
And how he properly apologized to Haruka about him being dishonest was a good thing to do.
For me, Gen is special. His voice was really nice to your ears.


My favourite scenes were:


1. In this scene, his mother talked something bad about Wao and that made him so angry. I just love how he shouted at his mom with those teary eyes.




2. This scene happened when he realized that his love was not meant for Haruka.



3. This is a super short shot but I like how he put the jacket on Wao.



4. I just love him in the sweater.




5. The most handsome Gen.



Is it recommendable? I do recommend it if you are looking for a simple not so heavy movie.

Honest claim : Gen is surely one of my very few favourites movie character.

Note : There are so many things that I love about Gen but I can't put them in words.

Akatsuki.....
yuppie!

アカツキ (Red Moon)


赤い光 月の明り 
不思議な空 まわる宇宙
綺麗な声 
恋におちる その笑顔の奥のほう
僕の瞳 映る姿 
嘘と理想 揺れる世界
甘い言葉 孤独な夢 
悲しみ纏ってるジェラシー
Red light, Moon rays
Mysterious sky, Revolving universe
Beautiful voice,
The depth of your smile that I’ve fallen for
The figure that’s projected in my eyes
Lies and ideals that have shaken the world
Sweet words, Lonely dreams
Jealousy that’s cladded with sorrow

心を開いて ありのままを見せたら
は 
If I open my heart and show you who I really am
Will you be willing to accept all of it?

大好きだよ なのに張り裂けそうに切ない
抱きしめたら 壊れそうなレプリカ
未完成な 僕らのまま愛し合えるように
教室の窓 静かに照らしたアカツキ
I love you so much but it’s so overwhelming to the point I’m about to burst
The replica that could break in my embrace
So that we could love each other as we are; our incomplete selves
The red moon quietly illuminates through the classroom window

赤い神話 月と太陽 
無限のリバース 幼い記憶
流す涙 隠すルール 
誰かに破ってほしかった
Red myth, Moon and sun
Infinite reverse, Childhood memories
Shedded tears, Hidden rules
I wished for someone to violate them

人は見かけより 心に傷があるよ
ら て 
Everyone has wounds in their hearts; even more than what they show
Because we are weak, we pretended to be tough to protect ourselves

大好きだよ なのに素直になるのが怖くて
抱きしめても すり抜けるホログラム
未完成な 僕らのまま許し合えるように
すれ違う廊下 想いを伝えるアカツキ
I love you so much but I’m so afraid to show it
The hologram that slips through, even in my embrace
So that we could accept each other; our incomplete selves
The red mood conveys our feelings through the corridor where we pass by each other

どうすれば
What should I do...

か 
  カ
The desire to be loved and to love
Is never ending, only the form changes; little by little

大好きだよ だから張り裂けそうに切ない
抱きしめたら 壊れそうなレプリカ
未完成な 僕らのまま笑い合える時に
教室のドア もう一度開けるアカツキ
I love you so much and that’s why it’s so overwhelming to the point I’m about to burst
The replica that could break in my embrace
When we could smile together just as we are; our incomplete selves
The red moon opens the classroom door, once again

About the PV:

1. The setup - Gosh...the setup is just so....akai.... You might think that the background was a CG effect. But actually, it was a video shot earlier. I don't think they use any CGI in this PV. Even the replica (I'm not sure what the white thingy called) was real.
2. The outfits - Woah....They were all look good in red....they were all look good in black too.... Especially Nozomu (Yes, I'm not bias but this guy was really outstanding in both outfits). The design was so simple but still very stylish.
3. The flow - OMG.... it was so relaxing yet you can totally sense the tense feeling of loving someone so much but you can't / don't know how to express it.... These guys were doing great in potraying those tenseness in their own different way... (Well, Shige did give a bit of happy feeling tho...thanks)
4. The singing / lyrics (yes, not only in the PV) - I just love the lyrics so much....how can this song can be so beautiful, soothing yet pressurize you? If you watched the drama, you can totally relate the lyrics with the feeling of both boys.... and the singing, the most intelligent thing about this song is how the singing order is 'switched' between the first verse and the second one....

In conclusion, I do highly recommend this PV to all....and please listen / read / appreciate the lyrics as you watch the PV.
Honestly, this is one of my favourite PVs of all time. seriously.


















Good job, Johnny's West.

Counting down to 30 July....

I'll do the countdown here so I won't forget his day even when I might lost interest to him someday....



Note : This is Hamada-Gundan

I'll randomly post whatever pic that I like per day....

IT'S ALL ABOUT YOU....
nozomu...
shibaru11
I've promised to tell how and why do I choose Nozomu out of the rest....

For me, Nozomu:
1 - He's not a good singer but he gradually improving and finding his own way of singing...You can totally see the difference of his way of singing during the earlier concerts with the latest performances.... I wasn't so fond of how he sang 'Principal No Kimi E' with a high-pitched voice....But I think that's one of the good way of how he used his voice....


2 - He's not a good actor yet... But you'll be surprised on how he could brought up a side role to be an important role... And how he managed to emotionally acted out the role... (please watch Momikeshite Fuyu for this reason)


3 - He doesn't have the prince charming aura or a kakkoi guy... But you will adore by how he brings himself... He doesn't have the ideal physical features even with his height, to make him so presentable...


4 - But one thing for sure, he is so cute that you can't even get mad at him...


5 - He might be young but his thinking is way mature than other boys with the same age...


6 - The transparency of his feelings makes him adorable...


7 - He is way too calm as a 22 years old guy....



There are so many things about him that I really like....as an idol, an actor, a performer...and also as a person....

IT WAS YEARS SINCE I HAVE THIS FEELINGS...

KOTAKI NOZOMU...

Yes... This overgrown boy...


He came into my life just when I felt disappointed with that someone's group...

Kotaki nozomu, or known as NON-CHAN, NONSUKE or just KOTAKI-KUN...



I started to love him just because of this duet with Hama-chan...


When I know nothing about him, I just fell in love after watching that performance...
I will always grateful to Hamachan forever...

From there, I gradually began to love him more and more...
And I did not like this...

What do I love about him?



To be continued...

THE SADDEST NEWS THIS YEAR...
shibaru11
It was officially announced that the Red member of Kanjani8 will leave the group...

I read this rumour two days ago and couldn't stop hoping that it is not true...

Shibutani Subaru... What can I say about him?
He's the one that make me open my eyes for Eito...
He's not handsome, not attractive, not charming, not sparkling and definitely not my type...
But.... To listen to his powerful, energetic and unique voice makes me feel 'genki'...
To see him fooling around on stage makes me laugh so hard...
To see hia interaction and love with the members makes me feel appreciated...
Subaru... He's one and only in Johnny's...
He has no idol-like characteristics at all...
But... You can feel his strong passion towards music just from his voice...

It's really hard for me to accept Eito without Subaru...
But... Who knows how many years he suffered inside when he has always wanted to do what he likes...

Please go chase your dream, Subaru...
And please come back to the industry...
With something that you really love...
Thank you to the members who understand him more than anyone else...
I'm sure he will never forget his comrades...

I hope that when you leave Johnny's, you can have your own twitter account so I can still following you...

Sad... But I'm grateful for him...
