Yes I finally decided to write about this BL movie “Takumi-kun Series”.
The movie is a adaption of the manga called “June Pride” which out sold millions of copies. I’ve enjoyed the manga and was anticipated to see this becoming a live movie. Although from pass BL movies I’ve seen which tells me not to expect too much as most of them aren’t great.
Tomo Yanagishita starring as Takumi and Kato Keisuke starring as Gii. Not much problems with this pairing and Tomo is really cute. From some angles when he didn’t wear the school uniform it just reminds me so much of Hongo Kanata, the smile and the figure. The acting I couldn’t say much about it, it wasn’t too good or too bad as these two are just new actors and couldn’t expect much from a low production movie.
The movie seem to filled up the scenes in the manga of volume 1. But I curious why they have 2 different color uniform, I don’t think the manga was like that (Oh wait the manga is black and white).
One of the main reason why I watch this was because Aiba Hiroki is also starring in it. He’s starring as Inoue Sachi the genius violinist.
The yaoi-ness in the manga was pretty light so I was expecting the same kind of thing (but in most of the BL movie it’s light yaoi-ness). The kissing scene you can tell they obviously didn’t kiss, just using the camera angles to make it seem like it. And the sex scene at the end was nothing more than just two topless guys on a white bed white blanket touching each other. The scene looks very dreamy as it’s all white (are they trying to make it looks like they’re pure or something?), the scene could just be cut but I guess it’s fanservice.
Overall the movie is alright, there are some sweet lovey-dovey scene which I find it’s cute and Tomo is really cute in this movie.
