Rurouni Kenshin Takeru SatoHello the first full week of 2014. It has been packed with lots anime as I got started with the 2013/14 winter season. Nobunaga the Fool was cool and Nobunagun was LOTS of fun but my highlight so far has to be Hoozuki no Reitetsu! If you like grown-up comedy you should watch it!

I started the week off with my favourite game of 2013, and followed it up with posts with reviews for two films I saw last year, the dull 47 Ronin and fantastic and fun Rurouni Kenshin. The Gifs I made for those reviews have proven to be quite popular on my Tumblr blog! Yesterday’s trailer post was all about the small films and anime and this post is packed full of blockbusters. Here they are:

Judge (2014)  Judge 2014 Film Poster

Japanese: ジャッジ!

Romaji: Jajji!

Running Time: 105 mins.

Release Date: January 11th, 2014

Director: Akira Nagai

Starring: Satoshi Tsumabuki, Keiko Kitagawa, Lily Franky, Kyoka Suzuki, YosiYosi Arakawa, Yoji Tanaka, Denden, Ryo Kase, Etsushi Toyokawa, Iyo Matsumoto,

Apparently this is based on an original idea which poles fun at international TV advertising. There’s a large cast of excellent actors like Satoshi Tsumabuki (For Love’s Sake), Denden (Cold Fish), Lily Franky (Like Father, Like Son) and YosiYosi Arakawa (Fine, Totally Fine).

Kiichiro Ota (Tsumabuki) has just scored a job at an advertising agency and already he is sent to the world’s biggest TV advertising festival with Hikari Ota (Kitagawa). They get to pretend to be husband and wife due to their similar family names but tey couldn’t be more different since she is serious and he is a bit of a geek (his Urusei Yatsura T-shirt is a giveaway) who loves to party. Kiichiro’s party soon ends when he finds out that unless his company’s commercial wins a prize he’ll be fired and soon he finds himself scheming and bargaining to get the prize.
