Yellow Tears (Blu-ray) (English Subtitled) (Japan Version) Blu-ray Region All
| Sakurai Sho
| Matsumoto Jun
| Tabata Tomoko
The five members of Arashi appear together on the big screen again in the highly anticipated Kiiroi Namida, a.k.a. Yellow Tears. Based on the classic manga by Nagashima Shinji, this nostalgic film takes the audience back to the 1960s with a moving story about youth, friendship, and the pursuit of dreams. Director Inudo Isshin, whose previous works include Touch, Maison de Himiko, and Across a Gold Prairie, strikes the right balance of compelling drama and coming-of-age tropes in following the hopes and trials of five young men in post-war Japan. With all the members of Arashi in a film together for the first time since Pikanchi, Kiiroi Namida inevitably bears the label of an idol movie, but it is much more than that. Matsumoto Jun (Hana Yori Dango), Sakurai Sho (Honey and Clover), Ninomiya Kazunari (Letters from Iwo Jima), Aiba Masaki (Triple Kitchen), and Ohno Satoshi have all developed respectable acting careers in their own rights, and the film truly showcases them as individual actors, while building on the chemistry they have as a group.
In the bustle of 1960s Tokyo, five young men cross paths and develop a strong friendship. Aspiring novelist Ryuzo (Sakurai Sho), ambitious manga artist Eisuke (Ninomiya Kazunari), painter Kei (Ohno Satoshi), and aspiring singer Shoichi (Masaki Aiba) end up living together one memorable summer. Along with delivery boy Yuji (Matsumoto Jun), each works hard to realize his dream, but the journey of youth is never straightforward.
Dynamite Graffiti (Blu-ray) (English Subtitled) (Japan Version) Blu-ray Region All
| Maeda Atsuko
| Ono Machiko
| Tominaga Masanori (Director)
Written and directed by Tominaga Masanori (Vengeance Can Wait), Dynamite Graffiti dramatizes the life of Suei Akira, the editor-in-chief of a famous eighties photography magazine that was known for its adult content. During the magazine's eight years of existence from 1981 to 1988, Shashin Jidai reached a monthly circulation of over 300,000, and constantly got in trouble with the censors. Based on autobiographical essays by Suei Akira, the biopic features Emoto Tasuku (Gonin Saga) in the lead role and a supporting cast that includes Maeda Atsuko (Before We Vanish), Miura Toko (Cherry Blossom Memories), Mineta Kazunobu (Boys on the Run), Matsushige Yutaka (Outrage Coda) and Ono Machiko (When Will You Return?).
Born and raised in a rural town in Okayama, Suei Akira (Emoto Tasuku) lost his mother at the age of seven in shocking manner. Suffering from tuberculosis, she committed suicide with her lover by exploding dynamite. The boy would grow up, move to Tokyo and start a small erotic magazine. Working alongside like-minded artists/photographers, Akira would bring erotic culture above ground with his sensational magazine while making constant trips to the police station for running afoul of censorship laws.
This edition comes with a bonus DVD of special features.
BLEACH (2018) (Blu-ray) (Normal Edition) (Japan Version) Blu-ray Region All
| Sugisaki Hana
| Tanabe Seiichi
| Eguchi Yosuke
One of the most popular and well-known manga properties in Japan and internationally, Kubo Tite's best-selling action fantasy manga Bleach ended its 15-year run in August 2016. Two years later, its highly anticipated live-action film arrives under the direction of Sato Shinsuke, who helmed the Gantz and Library Wars live-action adaptations. Fukushi Sota, one of Japan's hottest young actors and the hero of manga adaptations like As the Gods Will and Laughing Under the Clouds, steps into the role of substitute soul reaper Kurosaki Ichigo. New-generation actress Sugisaka Hana (Blade of the Immortal) co-stars as Kuchiki Rukia, the soul reaper who changes his life.
Bleach begins with the fateful meeting between high school student Ichigo, who has the ability to see ghosts, and soul reaper Rukia who brings departed souls from the living world to Soul Society. During a dangerous battle with corrupted soul-eating spirits called Hollows, the injured Rukia breaks shinigami code and transfers her powers to Ichigo, setting him on the dangerous and extraordinary path of becoming a soul reaper.
Besides Fukushi Sota and Sugisaka Hana, Bleach includes Yoshizawa Ryo (Gintama) as Ishida Uryu, a descendant of the Quincy line of Hollow hunters; rocker Miyavi (Unbroken) as Kuchiki Byakuya, Rukia's elder brother and a soul reaper captain of noble lineage; theater star Saotome Taichi as Abarai Renji, the soul reaper tasked to bring Rukia back to Soul Society; Tanabe Seiichi (Happy Flight) as mysterious shop owner Urahara Kisuke; and Mano Erina ( The Next Generation Patlabor) and Koyanagi Yu (Crows Zero) as Ichigo's close friends Inoue Orihime and Sado Yasutora, respectively. Eguchi Yosuke and Nagasawa Masami also appear in the film as Ichigo's parents.
