This is a rare thing. I saw these two movies NOT on the plane! Rare, isn’t it? I must have been drunk! *laughs*. But truly, my friends, I saw this movie for one person and one person only. I’ve been a big fan of Kiritani Mirei! There is something about her that I like. She is sweet looking yet strong. If you have seen her dramas (Ando Lloyd, Atelier and Sumika Sumire) and movies, she always plays sweet looking characters but with fire personality! I’m an avid fan of such characters and Mirei seems to be attracted to such characters as well.
In these movies, Mirei plays two very different roles. In Heroine Disqualified, she plays a high school girl whereas in Vampire In Love, she plays a vampire who happen to fall in love with a human. Two different roles, one was cute and daring and another is sweet and charming. So here are my quick reviews on the movies:
In this high-school theme movie, Mirei is Hatori. She has been friends with Rita for years and when they entered high school, Hatori feels it is time to confess. She believes her life is like in manga and that she and Rita will end up falling and living together to the end of their lives. Well, when you’re in love, you will wish for happiness, right? Sadly, Rita fell for a different girl. Hatori tries to win him again. At the same time, another guy likes Hatori. But Hatori is so determined to get Rita back; she did not even notice Kosuke at all. That poor jerk *shakes head* tried so hard but… *shrugs*. Dude, your one sided love remains one-sided forever *laughs*. Now the question is, will Hatori gets to separate Rita and his girlfriend and confess her love to him? Watch it!
Overall, I had a great laugh with this movie. Don’t trust me? Ask Bel! *wink*. Oooh, before I move on, I highly recommend this movie if you are up to something cute and bubbly!
Vampire In Love
The title says it all. Kiira looks like another ordinary girl but she is not. She is the third generation vampire in her family. Her mother was a human but since she was in love with her vampire dad, she became one. When she was young, she met Tetsu but had to disappear when she found herself drawn to him and wanted to bite him. Years later, she works in a bakery own by her family. One day, a salesperson walked into the bakery and tried to sell a breast enhancement crème. *laughs* awkward, right? But Kiira recognized him immediately. The salesperson is Tetsu and she is once again drawn to him. They dated and he even admitted that he will be a caring vampire when she turns him into one. But instead of doing that, she wiped his memory off! Why did she do that? I’m not gonna tell you what happen… go watch it! *wink*
The movie is sweet. Very sweet. But it lacks oomph, in my opinion. Overall, I enjoyed it. If you have time to kill, I think you will enjoy it too.
