Good Day! How do you do?
Just two days ago I came across an interesting movie and...
BEST MOVIE EVER!!!
So totally, definitely my absolute favorite movie in the universe!!! ^-^
"Arashi No Yoru Ni," means "One Stormy Night" in Japanese. It's the name of the movie... if you didn't figure it out by now
Anyways, I want to raise the awareness of it because I TOTALLY LOVE IT!!! The problem is that neither the movie nor the complete collection of the books are available in English, probably because they haven't got a translator yet And I can't wait for it to become popular so that I can buy official collectibles like plushies and toys
So, what do I love so much about it? To begin with, the movie is about true friendship... and implied bromance But, It's not just the theme, the plot is so amazing that it made me cry a lot of times; and allow me to say that it's very rare for anything to make me cry
And as if that's not enough, the concept behind the story is marvelous . In the internet there's an interview with the writer he states that he wanted the gender of one of the characters to be ambiguous because he didn't want the children's imagination to be limited; so he also (as I understood) left each book "hanging" so that the kids imagine the ending! SO BRILLIANT!!!
Unlike the books, the movie depicts Mei as a male, but it's still really cute!!! So, It's my FAVORITE BROMANCE EVER!!! And I also have to admit that I get so absolutely obsessed watching the movie because its just SOOOOO CUTE!!! It's so well made and everything about it is awesome (except Gabu's and Mei's voices in the English dub)
I absolutely recommend everyone to watch it and be prepared to yell, to cry, and to say: "aww, that's so cute!" a bunch of times.
It's available on YouTube; there's an English dub version and an English subtitles version. Personally I prefer the subtitles better; thou it had some idioms I didn't get at first, I loved the dialog much better.
