The Winter 2013 anime season is approaching its end as shows enter their 11th and 12th episodes. I have a series of posts lined up about it including one about the most exciting shows in the Spring 2014 season based on some articles I wrote for Anime UK News. I’m approaching a Japanese exam so expect fewer posts from me as I spend less time writing about films and more time actually practicing Japanese. I’m in the middle of my long week at work so time is rather scarce and I need to focus. Remaining on the topic of work, I met a girl there who is utterly charming and a fellow fan of film critic Mark Kermode and we chatter endlessly about films which makes the day easier. Another member of staff is trying to get me to watch Italian films but I’m hesitant because the title he selected is six-hours long. I wish I had six hours to do stuff! It certainly wouldn’t be anything related to Italy!
In blogging terms, I posted information about a Yoshitaro Nomura season – I’ll be watching some of these films – and a trailer for a new “Ju-On.” In film and television terms I watched “I’ll Give it My All Tomorrow” last Saturday and further episodes of “Watashi no Kirai Tantei”. Enough about me, here are the trailers.

I have reviewed two Yoshihiro Nakamura movies here like The Foreign Duck, and See You Tomorrow, Everyone. I loved the former and hated the later. His latest project looks absolutely deliciously dark. He teams up with his usual writer Tamio Hayashi (See You Tomorrow, Everyone, Shield of Straw) for a murder tale full of hot young actors.
The Show White Murder Case sees victim Noriko Miki (Nanao), the best looking girl at a cosmetics company, murdered and her co-worker Miki (Inoue) coming under suspicion. The media frenzy begins as television shows interview Miki’s friends, family and anybody even vaguely associated with her. Soon rumours of her being a wicked woman emerge. Are they true?
