I just realised that we were starting to resemble "Faithway" as in having no updates. Jokes aside, I was doing my youtube surf this morning and came across 愛．旅立ち. I have never watched the movie and I have heard it’s not very good, and I can see why from the opening sequences of this promotional video because it is hilariously bad. It almost looks like Godzilla masked in a love story. It features the duet with the seemingly "childlike" voice of Matchy meshed with the lucious honey of Akina. Their chemistry is evident and Akina is so obviously in love and she glows while being piggy backed by Matchy.
Just when I was wondering on the box office performance, I see this extra blurb by the side:
So, I guess to be 8th in the year for Japanese movies released, it should be considered a hit. I think they should have focused purely on the love story because that would have probably made it a better movie … and this is coming from someone who has never watched it. Ha! Ha! Enjoy the clip …
