I watched the subbed Rinne no Ame tonight, along with my housemate. Once again, I was moved by the cinematography and direction. It's really lovely. And beautifully acted. My comprehension of Japanese has improved more than I realized since I saw this on Keyhole, and with the subs, of course, I was able to better see how well the cast performed. And how nicely the story was written. The script reminds me of the works of Thomas Hardy, with heavy doses of determinism, but without the reliance on character obtuseness that so frustrates me with Hardy. This is the drama I would show to someone who had never seen j-drama before: One hour, one complete story.

That's some pig... )

 I said I'd try to do picspam, and I am doing it! But I didn't even get past the first scene.  One, there's just too many good shots. Two, I get so emotional going through this. Seto's scared little face! Noooooooooooooooooooo! Yamamoto's Eyes of Concern! 


If you don't want to be spoiled, don't look past the cut. 

They really do look like brothers )

Who could scarcely sleep for the excitement of watching 輪廻の雨 (Rinne no Ame)? Me! And probably you, too, if you are a Seto or Yamamoto fan.  And Keyhole even mostly cooperated! What a relief that was. I would have been beside myself fretting whether someone was going to be kind enough to upload it. (Thank you, mystery uploaders of all nations.) 

I loved every moment of Rinne no Ame. Seto's body language was perfect throughout. He and Yamamoto were great at conveying internal conflict on their faces. And the story! I really didn't expect that ending, but it makes sense given Shuhei's confusion and complete belief in anything Kohei says. The flashbacks made it obvious that the crime was a complete tragedy, that Shuhei's innocent playing with the safe had doomed them no matter what. And the somewhat open ending leads to further tragedy no matter what might happen.

And, damn, but I love these two working together! It's as if they were born to play off each other. They catch and reflect each other's expressions in a way that makes it seem like they have known each other for ages. I suppose it is unlikely they will end up in the same production again, but I can still wish.

I'll try to picspam later.

If you here, and click on the camera in the right hand corner of the first big box, you can see a 15 second teaser. Be sure to open the pop-up box if your browser is set to not let through!

Fuji has posted interviews with Seto Koji and Yamamoto Yusuki. The pictures of each of the actors are lovely, and even Google Translate doesn't mangle the text too badly (I spot checked).  I'm really anticipating this drama special. Good actors, a good script, and an intense theme. Please, someone, be subbing this! Fuji, oh, Fuji, why won't you sub your DVDs? I would pre-pre-order this if I knew you would, I want it so badly.

There's nothing there but a splash page, but what a nice splash page it is. Go look.
