Hi there!! Sorry for disappearing for a very very very long time... I just entered college and suddenly I got so busy since I got no single day without assignments. I took art major, and the assignments really use up a lot of time and energy (and money, too). I'm going to show you some of my assignments someday soon in a post as a proof that I gone for something advantageous and not just lazying around, 'kay? I'll do the post asap! So, some of you guys might be asking, why even in the middle of my rushing activities, I still have time to watch some movies?! Well, but really, I just managed to watch movies during few days before the mid exam (which makes my lecturers lessen the assignments a little so we can breathe peacefully for a while lol).
The movie I just watched, as you already know from the title and that big poster above, is titled as "Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji" which means "Wolf Girl and Black Prince" in English. It's adaptated from a shoujo manga written by Ayuko Hatta, and also has an anime series published during final quarter of 2014 by TYO Animation in Japan. I don't read the manga nor watch the anime, so I can't give a comparation of them with the live action. The movie tells story about Erika Shinohara, a high school student who desperately wants to fit in a clique so she won't be lonely. However, her clique consists of girls who have boyfriends, and she has to tell lies about her having a boyfriend too. She even took a photo of a random guy as a "proof" that she isn't lying. Unfortunately, the guy she took photo of, Sata Kyouya, turns out to be the most popular boy in her school. Erika asks him to pretend to be her boyfriend, which he agrees to under one condition: that she become his "Wolf Girl" by acting like a pet to him.
To be very honest, I actually watched this movie because the main actor is Yamazaki Kento (acts as Sata Kyoya). Yamazaki Kento is my favorite Japanese actor of all time!! He's cute, and he appears as main actor, everywhere. Literally everywhere. Well, now is his rising time. Some people don't like it that he's everywhere, they say it's boring to see same faces over and over again in different movies. But I don't! I love it that his face is everywhere! Fumi Nikaido (acts as Erika Shinohara) is really cute, too! I don't really know about Erika's personality in the manga, but I think Fumi is too innocent to role as Erika lol, because somehow Erika (in the manga/anime) has a face that shows strong/emphatic personality. But it's okay since she's cute! Overall, the actors/actresses in the live action really resembles the original character, and it's really great.
My favorite part of the movie is when Kyouya realizes his feelings to Erika, that he told his friend, Kamiya, that it's not everyday you can find the person who really cares about you and really think about your feelings. And also that funny part when Kyouya deletes all contact numbers of 300 girls in Kamiya's cellphone xD and last but not least, that moment when Kyouya finally approached Erika, put a necklace on her neck and kissed her but can't tell "I love you" without getting embarassed! That's soooo cute!❤
Overall, I really like this movie! The story isn't too complicated but still have its own interesting intrigue. Plus, it has Yamazaki Kento in it!
