[ Review ] Orange ( TAKANO Ichigo ) Film

Naho Takamiya (Tao Tsuchiya) is a 2nd year high school student. During the spring, Naho Takamiya receives a letter sent by herself from 10 years in the future. In the letter, she liked transfer student Kakeru Naruse (Kento Yamazaki). Kakeru Naruse carried emotional scars from his mother's suicide and he died one year later. 26-years-old Naho Takamiya thinks about Kakeru Naruse often.

2nd year high school student Naho Takamiya, with the knowledge of what she feels 10 years in the future, takes action to change her future.  

   I was definitely attached to Orange(Takano Ichigo) manga. It was the manga I used to read when I was about to end my life, and every night was the perfect time to shed tears how painful it is existing alone. Driven to this attachment, my expectations for the film was heavier than it should.

   Directed by Kojiro Hoshimoto together with the respective staffs , the movie has set the mood perfectly. If I were to ask some details on it, the environment where they shoot the movie was perfectly chosen. The setting paced an importance to the manga and the film. Particularly, why it was called Orange. Me and my college friends were left an unanswered when the manga ended. I was thinking most of the time, Orange was probably idiomatic, a sense of lamenting the dead, or probably a taste of those dark days but allas! the film indeed became helpful. The time setting for the film is sagacious named by the fields and trees. I could say it parted the time frame for each scenes.

   The difference between the actors and the imagined characters were well-defined. Each facial expressions added remorseful attention to Kakeru Naruse's character. The counted and heavy scenes brought together the emotions to the viewer. Script and exchanging lines were directed at heart. Everything acted as a whole.
  Each important chapters from the manga were chosen, although some points were revised. The revision wasnt as bad as it seems, and still felt real to the story's content.
 The moment was definitely eye-tiring, fun and real. I wish that they stick with the manga's ending, though didnt really make of a bad deal. For me, I've really like to see somehow, where they ended up reading each other's note ten years in the future.

[ Feature ] Android/IOS Rhythm Game with VOEZ

Game App : VOEZ
Developer : Rayark Taiwan Inc.
Information/Review :
Most Rayark games are free to download on Android, the most popular and most downloaded games are Cytus and Deemo ( both of which are music-rhythm based games ). Some tasks/achievements , though free to download, require players to purchase new chapters or full access.

The game, requires 200 MB free space storage, with each 5MB song it takes. The account/s are linked on your social accounts or you could sign in as guest though a message/condition should be met. Guest account, when decided for purchase, some data files could be lost upon uninstalling.

In terms of level of difficulty for noobs like me, I guess it was friendly for easy mode and a landslide for hard and special mode. But in few days, I was capable of getting the stream and days closed by I was able to make 900k in Easy and Hard mode. Friends who were familiar with Deemo, which they played before easily coped up with the game.

In terms of visuals, for an otaku it would pass an A++. It is clean and appealing for every song choice. Prince of Tides was one of my favourite, though I couldnt seem to get it for awhile. If gaming-wise I suggest people to join the FB Group named VOEZ Global. They help co-gamers on every song choice to achieve the game goals.
