01.07 Weekly “J-pop” review but I’m a Gintama Simp

Hey everyone. I’m here again to bring you guys another weekly review…as if anyone reads these, but it’s more for me anyway. I like trying to find new J-pop/rock songs to listen to so I decided to do this. Plus, I do this on my K-pop blog so might as well do it here, too.

Anyways, as the title suggest, there is some songs from the anime, Gintama, which I love. Sorry, the bias is real here.

Movie Thoughts: A Whisker Away (泣きたい私は猫をかぶる)

“ Hinode Sunrise is when the sun rises over the horizon and warms my soul.”

-Sasaki Miyo (Muge or Taro, the cat)
A Whisker Away (2020)

WARNING: This review will contain spoilers for ‘A Whisker Away.’ If you’ve already seen the movie or don’t care, then by all means, read on!

A Whisker Away tells the story of a lovestruck young teen by the name of Miyo Sasaki though she is better known as Muge.

In order to get closer to her love interest, Muge dons a cat mask to transform into an adorable white kitten named Taro, who becomes well acquainted with Hinode.

Movie Thoughts: Mary and the Witch’s Flower

The other night, I rewatched the debut film of Studio Ponoc called Mary and the Witch’s Flower. It came out back in 2017, but I hadn’t watched since then and felt the sudden urge to watch it again this week.

Disclaimer: Of course, I’m not a professional reviewer. I only have two semesters of screenwriting under my belt and with that knowledge, I shall commence my review.

P.S. Spoilers for this movie, of course.

However, please enjoy this week’s selection. Mr.theDX3, came through and dropped his playlist yesterday so expect my review posts to come out sometime after Tuesday (like Thursday or Friday at the latest).

Now, onwards~

I hope I will be able to deliver the J-poppy content you deserve!

Drama Corner: Watashitachi wa douka shiteiru

English translation: Something is Wrong with Us

So I just watched this drama a couple or so weeks ago and as one of the first posts to inaugurate this blog, I decided to write up a quick blurb about it. I swear to do better in the future if I continue to do drama reviews but I’m still not too well-versed in the field so bare with me.
