Romantic Japanese Movies for October 2011

I have a couple of recommendations for those looking for light yet touching romantic Japanese movies that will leave you feeling warm and fuzzy after watching:

Paradise Kiss
Based on the manga with the same title, Paradise Kiss is the story of Hayasaka Yukari, an ordinary girl from a prestigious academic school whose life was devoted to studying in order to please her mother, and a group of unique free spirited dressmakers and designers from a well-known school for the arts. The story that ensues when these totally opposite characters collide with each other is an amusing yet heartwarming tale.

I totally loved Paradise Kiss. It made me fall in love and laugh and cry. :)

Koukou Debut
Also known as High School Debut, Koukou Debut is a romantic comedy about a tomboyish girl named Nagashima Haruna who swore off softball (which she was very good at) in order to devote herself to a new goal: falling in love and getting a boyfriend. After several disastrous attempts, she decides to ask Komiyama Yoh, one of the most popular boys in school, to be her "coach" at attracting boys. He agrees, but with one condition: she is forbidden to fall in love with him.

Koukou Debut was seriously entertaining. I loved how the story panned out in the end as well. :)

I'll be posting more recommendations for live action Japanese movies as well as JDoramas, animes, and mangas in the future. Until then... :)
