Koizora I’m watching as we speak has my ** Miura** with blonde hair swoons @Niennavalar he’s gorgeous in this one but I have a feeling this is going to be extremely sad I’ve got a box of tissues just in case…
Werewolf Boy just finished watching really liked it thanks again @dramaaaaa !! I demand a sequel :stuck_out_tongue: I have a theory how I’d want that done!! :stuck_out_tongue:
Baby and I also watched today and it was just adorable thanks @shalottcamelot cutest one so far today!! :slight_smile:
Nana 1&2 I’ve watched and rewatched loveeeeeeeeee the manga anime and live action one of my all time favs
Grave of the Fireflies I’ve seen the anime was it made into a Live Action too??
The rest are all new to me so tysvm!!!

BTW have you seen Beck if you’re a fan of the manga and anime I would recommend it I thought they were dead on for the casting!!!


BECK up there with Nana for me anyway felt like the manga/anime characters walked right out into their portrayal sometime I watch a drama or movie based on an manga /anime and I’m disappointed NOT with this one…



Faints SOLD

Yes Grave of the Fireflies has a live action two actually as I just discovered as I was looking for a link =)
2005 version, 2008 version. I saw the one with Mao Inoue (2005) but I guess I saw the 2008 one too as I recognize the scene on the cover. I’m confused now…LOL

Beck anime wasn’t really my thing so I never saw that movie.

I love Koizora so I won’t spoil the end for you , I’ll stay quiet. I love Nana too…
Kimi Ni Todoke, I still have to see the live action of Paradise Kiss but I will added to my list.
I’m not sure if in this topic can we count the animated asian movies as well but all movies made by Studios Ghibli are a must : castle in the sky, my neighbor Totoro, spirit away, nausica, princess mononoke etc. they are all great.
Grave of Fireflies is a huge most see, is concidered one of the best japanese movies of all times. (the animated one)
and I’m adding boku no hatsukoi wo kimi ni sasagu to my movies to see.
Ah I wanna see the movie that T.O.P did recently that was in USA movie Theaters

200 pounds of Beauty I think I’ve seen is that the one about Jenny who is this amazing singer?? Goes under FULL BODY plastic surgery?? I liked it but not so much the whole if you get head to toe plastic surgery done you can change your life she could of just went on a diet she was beautiful the way she was in my opinion not that I have anything against plastic surgery heck I’d go get tweaked here and there but not my WHOLE body!! o_O.
