While we wait for Juri’s WOWOW project (please, please! Someone sub this!!! And please, please WOWOW release this with subs), the programming (non-coding) people have decided to do a Juri Marathon with 6 films! (Sounds like Comfy Monki to me xD) starting on September 7th (That’s a Monday, just so you know~)
- Sept. 7th – Jozze to Tora to Sakana-tachi (Josee, the Tiger and the Fish)
with Satoshi Tsumabuki and Chizuru Ikewaki
- Sept. 8th – Kame wa Igai to Hayaku Oyogu (Turtles Swim Faster than Expected)
with Yu Aoi (!!! xD)
- Sept. 9th – Naoko
- Sept. 10th – Swing Girls (!!!!)
- Sept. 10th – Warau Mikaeru (Arch Angels)
- Sept. 11th – GuGu Datte Neko de Aru (Gu Gu the Cat)
with Kyoko Koizumi~~~
Why they chose Josee instead of Rainbow Song makes me wonder… after all she was barely in Josee xD – Anyway, if you get WOWOW, don’t miss the chance to watch these six Juri films!
if they are showing them with subs then I am all for this marathon!
I need a Juri Marathon!!
I think all of them are subbed, though I haven’t seen Arch Angels. Lst I heard, Naoko was subbed though I didn’t see it with subs…
Josee is a strange choice indeed… quite a good movie but as you said, we see very little of Juri. Rainbow Song aaaah SOME movie: Iwaî +Juri Ueno + Yû Aoi, couldn’t be bad :)
These days I’m very mch into a Miki Nakatani phase, rewatched Kaosu, Happily Ever After, Ringu and Matsuko of course. She’s great !!!
I haven’t watched Kaosu or Happily Ever After xD
But I’ve re-watched Matsuko I dunno how many times xD
I remember watching Josee because I was in my Ueno phase xD this is why I comment on them choosing it for Juri’s movie week. Oh, personal experiences~~~
“I haven’t watched Kaosu or Happily Ever After”
I strongly recommend both. Kaosu is different from other Nakata’s, his style is clearly recognizable tho, it’s a remarkable thriller. As to Happily Ever After, it’s a real blast, her character is a bit Matsuko-esque but the story is not as sad.
