We are back with a new list and focusing on 3 upcoming Japanese movies that we believe should be on your radar. As always, we hope you enjoy it.
Not that we are complaining at all, but South Korea really have been stealing the limelight with both TV and feature film productions. I thought it would be a good idea to write a short list of some Japanese movies we will see release early next year.
THE MIDNIGHT MAIDEN WAR
The story centres around a young man called “I” who movies to Tokyo. Bored of his mundane existence, he finds excitement by visiting a secret place called The Hide & Seek Circle. Here, “I” meets two mysterious men called Senior and Black Suit that lead his once boring life down a path of complete destruction.
The Midnight Maiden War is based on a novel called “Mayonaka Otome Senso” by F.
Based on a Manga of the same name, Noise is set in a small rural Japanese town. For years. the population has been declining due to ageing and migration. But when a new fig called ” the black fig” is found, money and exposure start to pour into the town. As well as the much-needed money, a mysterious stranger also arrives to work at the fig company. The workers soon realise that their new colleague is fresh out of jail for a brutal murder.
Another live-action adaptation of a Manga written by Masahito Kagawa and illustrated Toji Tsukishima. The manga was first published in 2017 by Big Comic Original.
It looks like Zenkamono also had a drama series released in 2020. This film is a completely separate story and said to take place several years after the series.
The story revolves around a probation worker who looks after ex-convicts and juvenile offenders. Her life is torn to pieces when she witnesses a horrific crime.
Thanks for reading. We hope you’ve added these to your future watchlist!.
