One of Best Manga Adaptation Live Actions
OK, to begin with, I know the manga, but never read past volume 1. Yet, just to add my movie collection, I got the movies. One day out of nothing, I played it, so here is my review.
The movie is just beautiful. Each of the episode is short, around 20+ minutes, yet it is just enough. No dragging scenes and plots. And the main attraction, the witch lady is just mesmerizing. She is - sorry, to be honest - not among the best eye candies or best looking actors. Yet, she managed to bring the mystical, beautiful, mysterious, temptation and beauty aura in this movie. It is as if the movie is made for her. She and the character are the main thing in the movie, at least for me.
The main characters are too old to play high school (or is it college?) students. Also, for a supposed to be a horror theme story, the series is not scary at all. Last, the visual effects are a bit on the low end, maybe because of budgetary reason.
This is a good series to watch, not dragging at all. I hope they can do a season two with better plot. Oh, and never knew Anne Watanabe before, but will look for more of her movies.
