Kenichi Matsuyama Series: Ikari (Rage)

I spent the entire two and a half goddamn hours cringing in fear because it’s one of those movies where ANYTHING horrible can happen to the characters. Even in the final three minutes before the credits, I was expecting a last-minute suicide or something.

Kenichi Matsuyama Series: Usagi Drop

If this were an American film, it would wring maximum I am Sam pathos: there would be a huge custody battle between Daikichi and the kid’s ex-junkie mom who’s now married to a tech billionaire, Daikichi would have a criminal past or secretly be a stripper, Rin would develop cancer or fall out of an airplane…anyway, if you know American films, you get the idea.
