I doubt these kind of movies will be super great but I just watch it for the sake of Aiba Hiroki, as I have heard that he’s the leading character in this movie. But he’s actually not (to me) when I watch it, more like Baba Tooru was the lead character. I just found out that Kiriyama Renn was in it when I was looking at his profile at wikipedia, I didn’t recognize it was him at first that he was one with the glasses. I think I’m starting to like him more that’s why I want to watch Tokyo Ghost Trip.
So this movie is basically about a cafe called Cafe Rave Continuer and there is 3 hot and cute guys working there which are Shibata Hibiki (Aiba Hiroki), Sardine Rintarou (Ookawa Genki) and Miura Mikoto (Kiriyama Renn). Shibata Hibiki is known as a genius who can see through people’s heart and he takes over the cafe when the boss has left wondering around to places. Sardine Rintarou is the son of a clergyman and is a patissier. Miura Mikoto A.K.A Kotocchi is a fortune-teller who does divination using his koto. One day Ishikawa Gaku (Baba Tooru) came to the cafe and wanted to become a patissier who brings happiness to customers. At first Gaku doesn’t understand why Hibiki does whatever the customer requested but slowly as the four of them getting along, Gaku finally understands.
So what’s with cafe and pretty boys these days? Well I don’t know. But this movie was pretty random and weird. All the customers there are weird, why does it seem like a host club instead of a cafe? Like those obasan using there cameras taking photos and touching Hibiki’s arm, they look so perverted in a way. Not only that was weird but Hibiki’s character too, kept spinning around while walking in the cafe. Aiba always get these kinds of roles, acting cocky and genius type but I like him. And Kotocchi with his koto, I was laughing hard when he was playing merry-had-a-little-lamb and customers were listening to it so seriously. Also the really random part where Hibiki started dancing in the cafe, I was like “WTF?”
At the end I think Gaku died as he was all depressed after seeing the doctor. Also at the end for the next Christmas you see Gaku wasn’t there. I thought the movie was quiet amusing at the start but it goes all boring towards the end and the storyline isn’t that interesting. But if you want to watch it for the guys, just go for it.
