Fantastic Girls でーれーガールズ

Good day dear Readers.

I was planning on making an MV and another post over the weekend but then I remembered that SDCC was happening. Yeah, spent the whole weekend basking in the goodness that was given to us fans like that thing that has the words ‘Super’ and ‘Bat’ in the title yet missing ‘Wonder’. I think I spent two thirds of the weekend just on that thing! I read almost all posts about it on blogs, all tumblr posts, all reddit comments, 4-chan threads, reaction videos, I swear this movie!

The Redcoats and ZOOM are coming!

Yeah, in case you couldn’t tell I’m a huge DC fan. Who doesn’t love the Batman or doesn’t want to have Wonder Woman’s babies? But really, as GAR as the Dark Knight and ethereal as Wonder Woman were in that god of godly trailers, this is post about something completely un-related.

I just watched the Fantastic Girls movie online. I always do that with movies I am sceptical about before getting the BDs. I was set to go into this wearily ever since the trailers, also because of a certain movie like it that proved to be a let-down. Seems like I was once again right! Why am I never wrong about these things! I am getting so good at telling that movies won’t be yuri that I think I could make a living out of it.

Mystery person: Do you know of the new season of School? The poster was mighty interesting.

Me: Dropped half-way through the first episode. Don’t bother with this one, believe me.

*Months later and the series is a typical reverse harem of guys fighting over the same girl!

Okay, granted I had to watch a bit of the series to get the answer but series are different from movies. For movies, you could mostly tell from trailers and plot synopsis and when I watched the Fantastic Girls trailer, I had a bad feeling but in this world one could still get surprised so I watched the movie still. I mean, Ayuko and Takemi had so much potential and their chemistry was great but in the end, even though there were no guys in the end, this movie was 99.9999% straight!

I kid you not!

There is a lot of chemistry between Ayuko and Takemi but while that would have been enough to make this yuri, this movie I swear!!!!! I have never seen so much chemistry wasted! Do you know of that meme about ‘I can’t believe it is not…’? Well, I can’t believe this is not yuri! You won’t believe it too! I wish there were subs for this because I don’t think I will be able to fully relay how maddening this movie is! Without subs and understanding Japanese, this would seem like a yuri movie but it is not! Love the chemistry between Ayuko and Takemi? Sorry but that chemistry was poisoned! You don’t want to bask in it.

PS: Thanks a lot Rika, for the A-reum FEELS!

When I say ‘in the end’ I mean the current time. The movie is told in two different timelines; Ayuko and Takemi’s high school days (the 80s) and the current time where they are both adults. Seeing as nothing happened in their adult lives that could not have been done in their younger lives, I really didn’t see a point to the two timelines. If the adult life was the main storyline then the past would be useful as it is used as a way to explain things and fill in the gaps. But the past took up most of the plot and the present felt like fillers that weren’t at all needed. Takemi’s death was just so bland! Yeah, I know it might be a spoiler but really, I felt nothing at all!

I think this is the first time I have agreed with an Amazon rating. This movie has like a 3 star rating I think and it mighty deserves it. Not just because of the bait but the movie itself was just so plain. This is strange because the movie had something that I haven’t seen before. There is a twist that made me so happy to learn because it hinted at great things.

Great things that did not happen!

YumeHaruka

So, I bumped into these trailers during one of my daily YouTube raiding and I found them quite interesting.

Not quite on the levels of OMG-I-Have-To-Watch-This or something because as you know, I quite trust my gaydar and from what I saw in the trailers, there’s gonna be PAIN! And by that I mean that go into these movies with less enthusiasm in regards to yuri or you will be terribly disappointed.

As for me, you know me, I always go into with eyes both open and my heart on my sleeves which always ends in me getting hurt every single time. Yeah, I totally lied, I never trust my instincts! But one of these days, I will listen to them! They actually never lied to me but I just choose not to believe in them and that’s totally my own fault but it does not mean that I can spare others the pain. And so I warn you all.

First of all, both movies seem to be about friendship. In the case of Fantastic Girls, it is where I would say that everyone should at least check that out. It looks very promising. Now not to say that it will be perfect, we even see it in the trailer but there is a guy involved, in there is proposed to be a love-triangle between the three, Takemi (the cool beauty), Dick and Akira (the shy-shy transfer girl). But if my instincts are as right as always then things are not that cut and dry and I think that Akira was in fact in love with Takemi, who was in love with Dick, who in turn was more in love with Akira.

The trailer tells us that the movie takes place in two time-lines, one when Takemi and Akira first met in High School and then later on in their adulthood when they meet again after 15 or so years I think. Seems there was a lot of things left un-said and God gives Akira another chance later on and if I am reading things correctly, she is going to say those things, those secrets that she has been holding onto for all those years. Interesting, huh?

Then there is YumeHaruka. You would think that a movie named after two characters in it would be about them both but from what I have seen so far on the net, things aren’t looking good!

But first things first, the main character (Haruka) is of course X21’s very own leader Yoshimoto Yumi. She plays Haruka, a Grade A student excelling in both academics and sports. The story goes that just as she is at the peak of her game, she collapses and is diagnosed with brain cancer. Yeah, this is like Dear Friends all over again. But while in that one the supporting girl had more screen-time, here Yume not so much. Not a single website lists her in the main cast which really baffles my mind! I mean, almost the whole trailer seems to tell us that Yume is a major character in this story, for crying out loud she is in the frikkin title and yet…

I sure hope this is all a misunderstanding! I mean, I don’t mind if she dies in the movie (which seems like it will happen) but to go so far as to make her that inadequate outside of the trailer is really rubbing me the wrong way. I really hope this is not the real case and that she will actually me a major character and not just some girl Haruka meets for like, two days while in the hospital and then dies and is forgotten about!

Any way, skip over the line for the trailers and more caps…
