Monday night I spent my evening watching the hilarious Toei Hero Next. It’s like the third of it’s installment, at least for the gekidan heroes series:

Press 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10
DVD PreOrder here

CAST and CHARACTERS

Suzuki Shougo as Suito
Saito Shunsuke as Kuroda Ken
Baba Ryoma as Mizuno Satoshi
Moritaka Ai as Momose Niina
Nakajima Kaito as Kirijima Reito
Kinjyou Yamato as Aoki Junzou
Maruyama Atsushi as Kinbara Toshiro
Soutarou as Hara
Matsumoto Hiroya as Mysterious Guy

Hiramaki Jin as Ruri
Hayashi Tsuyoshi as Ran
Tomita Sho as Sou
Miyuki
Fujisawa Reika
Iwasaki Nami
Hata Mizuho

AfterTalk Guests: Watanabe Tsurugi and Ise Daiki.

STORY

Kinbara is in a writing slump which means Gekidan Bazooka are without scripts and things to perform until then, so they decide to try out being hosts at Club Jewel, but soon they get caught up in an attempted murder, but with no script to guide them, they have to improv. their way to figure out what really happened.

NON SPOILER

This was so fun. I laughter so hard for 2 hours straight. The scripted comedy, the improvised parts, the accidental mistakes and the aftertalk was ALL hilarious. I very much enjoyed myself and it was very refreshing to watch - I expected to be super tired after doing 3 stages and 2 events the week prior - but this was so easy to watch and so easy to be entertained and is a lot of fun! Baba Ryoma is just the king of being over-energetic and funny in an ugly way, Sho-san definitely controlled the AfterTalk and everyone was definitely onboard with whatever crazy requests and daily challenges (higawari) and improvs that came their way. I really hope they do a next install me. And it’s so freaking cool seeing the entire cast and going ‘holy moly they ALL did sentai!’ it’s badass having that realisation in the middle of the play.

Rating: 8/10


SPOILER

The first few parts won’t be spoilerly, so you can read up to the ‘read more’ line without worrying ^_^

When I first walked in, I realised I had an aisle seat... and THEN I realised it was a host set up on the stage... AND THEN I realised there were stairs leading up to the stage, and I was just like ‘oh shit please do not come my way and approach me’ ... my heart was racing anytime they came down the stairs or towards me o_O


( Shinpainaisa! ) )

And that’s all! I hope you enjoyed the review ^_^

You can see the list of those I intended to read here. I completely stuck to my list this time and didn't watch anymore nor anything else! (<< as in 2016 Autumn releases) Some were absolutely amazing, but there were a few disappointments.

I shall do the doramas first:

akidorama1


1. Lady DaVinchi [7/10]

( 1 ) )




2. Cain and Abel [3/10]

This bored the crap out of me. I watched it because my friend loves Yamada and she wanted to watch it together with me. But I ended up missing weeks and had to marathon like episodes 3 to 8 in one go so I never actually live tweeted her about it at all. Luckily she enjoyed it because of Yamada but unfortunately he was not enough to keep my interest. This plot is so stupid. It couldn't decide if it wanted to be a business focused dorama or a romance focused dorama; it kept flipflopping between the two. And while the romance started off good and I was still onboard about episode 7; the end result was so stupid. Can I spoil you? Okay here:

( 2 ) )


I hated this show. I was gunna write more but my rant has put me in a super bad mood for this.

Theme song was good.


summerseason1yowamushi

3. YowaMushi Pedal [8.5/10]

( 3 ) )





4. Doubutsu Sentai Zyuogher

This is still on going but I'm about 36 episodes in and this is enjoyable. It's simple, it's cute, it's definitely a step up from the previous season, the plot development is decent too but it's nothing amazing but it's definitely good to watch. The Halloween episode was great preciated xD This series might finish before the winter season is over (it normally runs like Feb to Jan every year).

akidorama4

5. Kamen Rider Ex-Aid

This is also still on-going and this is a lot of fun! I really like the plot and I like the characters and the budget for this show is huge compared to the previous series because of the amount of CGI they use every episode! Also; all the boys are so cute!!! I'm definitely (and surprisingly) loving Snipe and Laser (<< oh jesus they're all younger than me including these two!!) so much! They're great and I swear to go if they kill them off; I'm rioting! xD I say this because in (about) episode 11 we already got out first character loss so I'm glad this Kamen Rider also isn't being kind as usual and isn't being child proof which is always appreciated. I have to say the weakest out of them all is Emu! Once again we have a Kamen Rider where the main character is the weakest part of the series! I really like him BUT I feel the personality switch he's supposed to have when he starts playing games just isn't prominant enough and it's not obvious enough. Finally, surprisingly Hiiro is growing on me and it all started because he likes cakes and sweets <3 his backstory really helped me understand him also. So yes, enjoying it and having a good time with the characters!


I'm done with the doramas! What did you watch and enjoy? And now for the anime:

akianime2

6. Show by Rock Season Two [2/10]

( 6 ) )

akianime3

7. Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru [9/10]

( 7 ) )


akianime4

8. Yuri no Ice [10/10]


( 8 ) )

I watched a lot of other things this season that didn't come out this season so I'll so a separate post about those! But those have been my Autumn 2016 doramas and anime!

I watched this last Wednesday and oh man this is exactly what I wanted and what I was expecting to get! And it was better than expected! By the way; does everyone like my new icon? Cos I do! xD


Official Site Here
Trailer Video Here


Cast

Minami Keisuke
Baba Ryoma
Tamoto Soran
Matsumoto Hiroya
Aramaki Yoshihiko
Sotaro
Ogasawa Ken


Plot

The year is 20XX and 12 20-something year olds have been picked randomly through My Number (it's like the social security system) and will dicuss whether Article 9 should stay in motion, or if it should be completely scrapped. What THEY don't know is that their decision will officially decide the answer for the government.



If you don't know what Article 9 is then... seriously?! But I'll tell you anyway:

Article 9 of the Japanese Constitution came into effect on May 3, 1947, following World War II. It stops Japan from having an official army and cannot go to war unless (as of a recent interpretation) an allied country is the one being attacked.

That's the quick jist of it anyway. Go and do your research if you wanna learn more. OR just watch this film because...

( This movie impressed me so hard! ) )


---


And that's my review! I'm mostly likely and most definitely gunna get this and it's making on DVD xD

Overall: I was so impressed with this movie! If you don't know what Article 9 is then don't worry because this movie explains it in great detail. I really liked the arguments that came up in this movie and there were some amazing performances and some amazing scenes, especially from Baba <3 I freaking loved the ending too and what so impressed with many things that happened in this. I'm definitely Against Article 9 though and this movie definitely solidified my view of this. Everyone should watch this; whether it be educational reasons, political reasons, historical reasons or just because you're interested in Japan!
Rating: 9/10

I seriously thought I'd already done this one! =O but I can't find the post anywhere! Oh dear... so here we go!


IMG_1449


My seat was at the back BUT it was so good! And I felt the atmosphere was more relaxed. There were a lot of mean in their 30s, 40s, 50s around me and they were real casual and would laugh loud whenever something was genuinely funny so I felt comfortable enough to let me real laugh out and they weren't like sat straight like most girl-dominated audiences are and it really helped the atmosphere and everything become more enjoyable - do this make sense? The same happened at Mata Aou - for some reason the older audiences are much calmer and more relaxed and free to chat a little and laugh a lot and even heckle and yell at the actor during the curtain call and stuff. It's interesting the difference. I like both the 'all us fangirls are here to support the actors and we will be the perfect audience' and the 'we just wanna be entertained' atmospheres that I've experienced this far. But anyway!

This was a play I'd been eyeing since like... March but I never bought a ticket and literally the moment stills of the stage came out, I was kicking myself and was like 'I KNEW I wanted to go! I still want to go! Fuck it, I'll go!' and so the next day I ran to Shinjuku afterwork to get a Toujitsuken xD


The story is... there's this war against the evil aliens (like there is in ALL super sentais) and 6 kids drink this potion and get put into a coma for like 40 years while the potion does it's thing and when they wake up, 5 of them are super human (one unfortunately woke up from the coma quickly and didn't gain any powers and is now old) and can now fight the bad guys. BUT only Baba's character is interested in defeating them; the other 5 are like 'lets go to an onsen instead!' or 'why do we have to fight?' or 'I'm more interesting in looking beautiful!' and stuff, so you can see where the comedy is coming from...


( Full of Laughter ) )


----

Overall: This was so funny. I was thoroughly entertained and laughing so hard! The atmosphere is always more relaxed when there's more older people in the audience and I was surrounded by them and none of us were afraid of dying of laughter which is good ^_^ being able to see Baba in the flesh was a gift <3 and I really really enjoyed JP's role and definitely showed a different side to him! I cannot wait for this DVD! I highly recommend it!

( Once again the list is long! ) )

On Hold List

I still have many many stalled doramas and anime, and I would like to finish some but I doubt I'll have time. If I do find time then I was like to finish at least one of these:

- DownTown Rocket [Dorama]
- Shi Gatsu ha Kimi no Uso [Anime]
- Donten ni Warau [Anime]
- Parasyte [Anime]
- Kill La Kill [Anime]
- Cross Ange [Anime]


But god knows xD

SO!  That is a total of 6 (7 possible) TV shows and 8 anime which comes to a rather large-ish total of 15 shows that I will watch this season!


What are you DEFINITELY watching this season?!

Seriously, they are very sexy moments!

gobusters2002

Such a sexy moment!! *dies* O Enter, the things you could persuade me to do...
And you are what my heart currently desires xP

gobusters2101

The whole of this scene where Baba Ryoma is featured is sexy! 
(Also, I would like to mention that there is only a thin shirt between us and seeing his body might I add ;))
Almost as sexy as this moment was:
