Horror Movies from Japan - Pt. 2

Hello! I'm back this week with my thoughts on Corpse Party and As the Gods Will. First up, is Corpse Party!

It started out pretty dark as the lights were off in the haunted/abandoned school, but came back with some color. It really didn't seem so bad til I saw one of the evil beings murder someone...then I was scared and covering my eyes. Remember, I'm a scaredy cat that has to watch horror movies with the lights on. ^^;

Anyway, It was pretty close to the video game for the most part except that some characters were either replaced or missing from the script which I felt took away from the story. I also will NEVER EVER play Sachiko Ever After. Why? Because I don't want to risk being murdered by a vengeful spirit. 

One thing that I thought was weird was of the five spirits of Tenjin Elementary, one was more of a zombie than ghost. That made the movie 1000% more scary for me. ^^;

There's a post-credit scene, so watch to the end if you plan on seeing this. Japanese level of this movie is pretty advanced, so if you have been out of practice or a beginner, subtitles are your friend. 

If you love seeing guts and brains all over the place, this movie is right up your alley. You can watch the game play-through which is what I prefer over the movie.

For my second movie this week, I watched As the Gods Will, based on the manga of the same name, or Kami-sama no Iu Toori (神さまの言うとおり). 

It jumped straight into the action with the heads of high school students exploding in a "game" called Daruma ga Koronda. It seems to be played like Red Light, Green Light except if you're caught moving, off with your head. This is just the opening, too. Aside from Daruma-san, Maneki Neko and some Kokeshi show up to "play" with the students as well. 

I haven't read the manga yet, so I'm lost as to who one of the characters was. There were also quite a few flashbacks that cleared things up, but some things were still confusing. This was pretty awesome, but if I were in the same situation as the main characters, I'm sure I would have died. If you play these games without the death, they could actually be pretty fun.

The Japanese level in this movie is also advanced, so you'll need the subs if you aren't on that level. There's lots of blood and a psycho in this movie, but not as much guts as Corpse Party. I actually was able to watch this without hiding, though Daruma-san is pretty creepy.   


  1. Sau hàng trăm năm là thương cảng sầm uất, Hội An ngày nay trở thành điểm đến hấp dẫn với những mảng tường rêu phong, lòng đèn rực rỡ và dòng sông Thu Buồn uốn lượn giữa lòng thành phố. Nơi đây không nhộn nhịp hay đô thị hoá nhanh chóng như những thành phố phát triển nhưng vẫn đủ sức lôi cuốn hàng triệu lượt khách mỗi năm. Nhờ đó, phố cổ cũng dần thay da đổi thịt khi ngày càng nhiều dự án bất động sản nghỉ dưỡng hạng sang được xây dựng để đáp ứng nhu cầu lưu trú tăng cao.

    Báo cáo của Savills Việt Nam cho hay, tỷ lệ hấp thụ toàn thị trường khu vực Đà Nẵng liền kề Hội An đạt 90% trong nửa đầu năm nay do lượng cung sơ cấp hạn chế. Giá bán condotel trên thị trường sơ cấp dao động trong ngưỡng 2.100 - 4.800 USD mỗi m2. Riêng phân hộ cao cấp, tỷ lệ hấp thụ lên đến 94% và giá chào bán bình quân vào khoảng 2.500 USD mỗi m2.

    Thanh khoản và giá trị tăng mạnh chứng tỏ tác động tích cực từ cú hích của thị trường du lịch nghỉ dưỡng và làn sóng đầu tư dọc theo các tỉnh ven biển. Theo Savills, xu hướng gia tăng nguồn cung phòng khách sạn là động thái bắt nhịp linh hoạt với đà tăng trưởng khách du lịch tích cực nhất trong vòng một thập niên qua.

    Các chuyên gia bất động sản cho rằng bài toán đặt ra cho chủ đầu tư các dự án tại Hội An là phải tạo ra không gian nghỉ dưỡng đẳng cấp, đáp ứng các tiêu chuẩn và tiện ích 5 sao những vẫn ghi đậm dấu ấn văn hoá. Để giải quyết vấn đề này, Tập đoàn Bamboo Capital (BCG) hợp tác đơn vị tư vấn Landscape Solution Service (LSS) mang đến giải pháp cảnh quan tối ưu cho dự án Radisson Blu Hội An.

Welcome to
The Otaku Reviewers

This blog, "The Otaku Reviewers", was started in February of 2010 on this very same platform, Blogger. At first, it was a venture into the informational and informal world of comics, anime, video games, and Japanese culture. In other words, just a random blog.

Over time, the founder of the blog credited with the pseudonym "RPGhero" was joined by two fellow bloggers and friends with the names "Chansu" and "Deretsun". Together the three bloggers looked up interesting Japanese culture facts, recommended new anime, talked about their own "otaku" interests, and traveled across the United States to various anime conventions.

There have been off periods when the blog ceased production of content and there have been times when there would be dozens of blog posts per week. The schedule varies depending on the lives of the people behind the alias'. However the pattern is that we always get back into the game with even newer information about Japanese culture, anime, video games, and other nerdy hobbies.

The motto of our blog is:
"A cure for your apathy and an inspiration for your dreams. ...Applies to Otaku, anime fans, J-pop junkies, and the like"

The purpose is to blog about cool stuff related solely to anime and otaku stuff. There's no other reason we're doing this.

If you like our blog, please support us in however small a way that you would like. We appreciate our readers!
