One Day, You Will Reach The Sea / やがて海へと届く
HAMABE FRIKKIN MINAMI!!!!
Just when you think that things could not get any better, here comes Hamabe Minami being gay and kissing a girl!
She just joined the godly dream list!
That is a list that contains; Mizukawa Asami, Sawajiri Erika, Ishihara Satomi, Gouriki Ayame, Miki Honoka, Morikawa Aoi, Yamada Anna and now Watanabe Minami – all peak interest actors during their time, starring in lesbian roles and kissing girls!
Like, I just thought of this last night and I am ready to change my ways. While the stories from Japan most always are bittersweet, the fact that what I just mentioned happened deserves a medal.
If I had a Wishlist of actors who I wanted to star in Yuri roles, that Wishlist is all but complete, well, it’s missing Toda Erika and Aragaki Yui but that ship is already sailed me thinks…Their chance was in Code Blue Series but it was blown…
This movie hits hard and I mean hard! It was about the 2011 tsunami, which I know so well as I was a Madoka Magica whore at the time and I remember when it happened and everything was postponed right after the godly ep10!
A prayer to all those lost during those dark times!
And as such you can surmise that there a BAD END here but really, if you watched the trailers you would have already guessed as much. But if I am being honest, before I watched the movie, I thought that Sumire (Minami’s character) had killed herself but instead she died doing what she loved doing!
That on the side, this movie is going on my list for doing something special not done before. Yes, I have this personal list which means I will love this movie for all time and I will think of it for just as long!
That something is showing two sides of love growing parallel to one another and no, I know that Fingersmith exists but that is not what I mean. Fingersmith is like any other relationship, in that it’s sequential. Here both Mana and Sumire fall in love at the same time and react the same exact way as their feelings grow, which is very sad to see because the growth is of one thinking the other does not love them as much as they do but when in reality, they both love each other so much!
It was so painful and so sweet in how new it was and yes, they did the Fingersmith thing where later we are shown Sumire’s side of view but unlike that and many others, these two were tick for tock growing closer!
Additional points for them pulling a Hibike Euphonium mountain scene too! God, I hate that series and the baiting but it had some delicious scenes and that mountain one was one of them!
Fuck, I love this movie so damn much!
I sure hope it won’t be streaming only! I need a physical copy of this for crying out loud!
Definitely check it out you all!

Hi there. I left a comment on your “About Blog” page regarding Juliantina which I believe will be of great interest to you. Sorry if this is the wrong place, but couldn’t find any other way of contacting you more directly.

Hamabe Minami is actually a close friend with Sakura Ayane (a popular seiyuu) who is a big fan of yuri and she herself is very fruity. I’m sure Minami got an encouragement to take this role from Ayaneru 😂
