Twenty (working title)

Status: First draft in progress.
Brief summary: Ken enjoys playing basketball since he was young and one of the main reasons why he continues playing is because of his childhood friend, Aya. When he was young, he promised himself that when Aya turns 20, he will ask her out with a ring to make it special. Years had passed by and when things are looking good for Ken, Victor, his basketball rival, enters into the picture causing frustration for Ken both personally and in the sport.

Brief Commentary:

To add into my short story collection, the common theme in the finished first draft for three of them so far was love. I wanted to include not just love as part of the plot, but a sport as well to make something different.

Fireflies (working title)

Status: First draft in progress.
Brief summary: Akari and Takeshi are two close friends that finally confessed their feelings to one another in their final year of high school. Akari decides to stay in their hometown, while Takeshi is going to university in the city across the country. They are optimistic and determined to ensure their relationship stay strong, but after time and distance, will both of their feelings still remain just as strong? Can Takeshi still see the light of the fireflies that both of them saw the night before he left their home?

The Day Before (working title)

Status: On the 3rd draft.

My Impression of Train to Busan

I rarely watched Korean movies, and I believe this is the first time I am writing a review of sorts for one. Since this movie takes place in the apocalyptic zombie setting, this makes it even less likely for me to watch as I don't really watch zombie movies. Moving on, I randomly stumbled upon this movie and decided to give it a shot, The movie, Train to Busan. premiered on May 13, 2016 at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival. The film was directed by Yeon Sang-ho, and stars Gong Yoo, Jung Yu-mi, and Ma Dong-seok.

To not give any spoilers to the story, I'll try to be as brief of a summary concerning the story. The story centers around Seok-woo (played by Gong Yoo) and his daughter, Su-an (played by the child actress, Kim Su-an) where they get on a KTX train from Seoul to Busan so that Su-an can see her mother due to her wanting to file a divorce from Seok-woo. Since it is a zombie film, things go awry and an infected person gets on board the KTX to start the infection. Seok-woo figh…

My Impression of I am a Hero

I watched a Japanese movie, I Am a Hero, around the same time as I did with Train to Busan. Coincidentally, they were both zombie movies which I don't often watch that type of genre. The Japanese movie was released on April 23, 2016 and was directed by Shinsuke Sato. The movie starred Yo Oizumi, Kasumi Arimura, and Masami Nagasawa. 
The basic premise of I Am a Hero is the zombie apocalypse, but it takes its time to set up the zombie apocalypse. It starts the story a couple of days before the outbreak and introduces the main character, Hideo Suzuki, and his previous life before all hell breaks loose. He's always been a normal person with no accomplishments in life. All he has was his dream, but he's now 35 working as a manga assistant, which is consider lower than a normal part time job, with no hope of achieving his dream of being a successful manga artist. Then he meets a high school girl, Hiromi Hayakari along the way and tries to survive in this apocalyptic world meeti…

My Impressions of Wolf Girl and Black Prince

I recently watched a Japanese movie called Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Oji (translated into English: Wolf Girl and Black Prince) that is based on a manga of the same name created by: Ayuko Hatta. This movie was directed by Ryuichi Hiroki and was released May 28, 2016. The main cast as you see in the movie poster above is Fumi Nikaido and Kento Yamazaki. 
Overall, I enjoyed the film. I've never read the manga so I can't make any comparisons to the source material, but I thought that the acting, pacing, and the story within the film were fine. The synopsis of the movie begins with Erika Shinohara (played by Fumi Nikaido) who is a first year high school student and have joined a circle of friends who all have boyfriends. To make sure that she doesn't feel left out, she lies about having a boyfriend and thinks of situations to have her friend in a different school call her to excuse herself from them in order to show her classmates that she has a boyfriend. Erika has never been in …
