LAIKA ライカ

YES!

Another collaboration between Japan and another country?! You betcha I am so there for this! The last time we had a similar collab it was with France and as you remember we got ourselves a hidden gem in FLARE! I already know this is going to be good! I already know I am going to cry like a baby! I already know this movie is going to look absolutely stunning! And I also already know the chances of a Blu-ray of this are very slim…

Sigh

Just like FLARE, LAIKA is also titled after our main girl and in this case it is Laika, played by Miyajima Sae who went from a theatre actress to winning best Newcomer Award for this movie. Our other girl meanwhile is played by multi-talented Kseniya Alistratova – skilled in dance, piano, skating, skiing and so much more.

Also just like FLARE there seems to be promise of some real serious drama in this movie that is so desperately missing in most Hollywood movies but really, I guess that is why Indie Films like this one exist – To keep Art alive!

But really, those two words ‘TABOO’ and ‘LOVE’ already had me salivating at this movie so…

Any who, this just basically finished its cinema run so the wait for that DVD is going to be torturous! But you know how the saying goes – Good things come to those who…

I’ll be waiting!

Oh, hi there Yuu-chan, it’s been so long! We missed you!

Actually she is quite active on social media. She is ln LINE, she is on YouTube, she is on Instagram. She is on Twitter…Jesus, the girl is everywhere. SO I guess it is on me for not finding out sooner!

But anyway, there is new movie of hers that just raised my curiosity. It seems to be something we have seen before a lot of times already and it is probably not gonna have a GOOD END but once again, I commend effort, even if in the end that effort is thrown out when they realise they can’t go in the intended direction but have to conform to some unseen force field.

Please Art, come back!

Anyway Yuu-chan (Sugimoto Yuko, ex-HKT48 1st Gen member BTW to those who don’t know) plays Nacchan, who I am pretty confident is going to turn out to be a figment of our main girl Aino/Ai-chan’s imagination (played by Ikeda Natsumi). Meanwhile I can see Ai-chan and her other friend having this thing where they are in love with the same guy and with a little chance, one of them having a crush on the other. Yeah, it’s little but if there is even a 1% chance…you know the rest! Besides, if Schoolgirl Complex could do it (albeit without a guy but with three girls) so can this one!

But, as you know I hate threesomes, no matter what combinations they come in! So I guess I shouldn’t be wishing for one here!

Anyway the meat of everything is between Nacchan and Ai-chan! Even if it turns out to be just Ai-chan’s imagination, in which case there has to be a strong basis for it anyway, I am good. I have seen a good deal of ‘all in my head’ type of movies, one actually like last night, so count me in.

The DVD is set to be released sometime in May so you best believe it I a going to be getting it. Sadly for now it seems you can only pre-order it on those Japan-only sites but I am pretty sure the closer we get the international stores will be listing it as well.

Anyway, jump over for some pics, caps and the trailer…

Lemon-chan, you go girl!

Can’t believe that her stage play (of the same name) got turned into a movie! The design and everything reminds me of Noushou Sakuretsu Girl (which reminds me, I have yet to share my thoughts on that movie!) and I wouldn’t be surprised if the same team were behind this one too!

As for yuri, the trailer looks promising but this being the type of movie that it looks to me (Life Games eh…) I have low hopes of a GOOD END! But like I have said sometimes BAD ENDs are not so bad given the context.

And I am curious about the relationships too. From these trailers I can see two possibilities where our main character Sena (Miorin) is concerned. First there is Yudachi (Ririka) with whom Sena is presented on the posters. It also looks like it is her that she is about to kiss there. At least for this one I know it will survive towards the end of the movie, at the very least. What is bothering me is the possibility of the two being P&A and thus ending up clashing in the climax.

Then there is the other possibility in Araso (Moeka) but something tells me she is not going to survive this one! I mean, not only is she pretty low on the character list but she did not even appear in the pictured characters in the other trailer! Yeah, her future doesn’t look bright but who knows, maybe she is not going to b a part of the whole ‘game’ thing…

Wishful thinking I know but the way she was being all tender with Sena there (lying on top of her) they looked to good that I am already falling into my trap of shipping characters before I watch the damn story! This habit of mine has almost always backfired on me and I have a feeling it is going to here!

But I don’t care! Anyway even if the bad happens there is still Yudachi and she will probably even be better developed so chances are I will get to like her anyway!

Enough talk, the trailers and caps…

“This place…a reminder of love. A bond and a promise!”

My two favourite genres! Horror and Yuri! oh how I missed you! South Korea seems to have given up on it despite its profitability but alas, no use crying over spilled milk! And just when i think we are to never see something similar ever again, here comes Thailand, ah good old Thailand, that is relentless in the delivery of gay content (mostly yaoi at a ratio close to 100:4 in favour of yaoi) lately.

Just from the posters alone I was like “Say no more Thailand. Take my money”! And then seeing the trailer and my yuri sense once again proves to be spot on! Those quoted words are the first you see in the trailer! Talk about not cutting corners!

And while one might be inclined to think that this being horror, there is no chance for a GOOD END but one might be wrong! What is a GOOD END when one is dead? It can be when the other dies too, as it can when one comes back to life, it that were possible. Actually it is possible in horror. Just lately Annabelle did just show just that when Annabelle came back by possessing Janice’s body!

Actually, here this ghost kind of cheated in that it won twice, and thus giving us a GOOD END either way! If the trailer actually did spoil the ending, like I spied at a certain point, I stress ‘IF’ the movie was spoiled, then Ghost girl not only does she get her love to join her in death, but she also gets to have her Love’s daughter in the world of the living!

Either way, win-win situation for us!

Anyway, you all were lucky because when I first came upon the trailer for this movie there was no English subtitles but when I went to grab the link to post here, I found out that good GDH had an International (EN) version up now.

So jump over for that and some more caps…

See ya
