Yawara! A Fashionable Judo Girl – More Posters

leave a comment »

Last year I wrote about the movie posters on the openings of Yawara! and I ended up forgetting the pop music ones in her room. My guess is that the boy bands on the wall seen in the image below are 光GENJI (Hikaru Genji) on the left and 少年隊 (Shonentai) on the right. Both are mentioned by Yawara when she asks her grandfather if he met them when he went to a TV station.

Jarinko Chie

Chie Takemoto and her mother leaving a movie theater after seeing the 1967 ゴジラの息子 (Son of Godzilla). Image comes from the 1981 movie Jarinko Chie which was directed by Isao Takahata. A curious moment in the movie, a small scene from the live-action monster film is shown right before the part depicted above.

Huge Gone with the Wind poster as Chie returns home after spending the day with her mother. After her parents split, she keeps contact with her mother by secretly meeting her from time to time. She lives with her father because she has to take care of him since he is an irresponsible gambler. Interesting to think that Gone with the Wind, a 1939 movie, could still be exhibited almost 30 years after it’s premiere on theaters.

Shinryaku! Ika Musume & Advanced Daisenryaku

leave a comment »

Eiko Aizawa and Ika Musume (aka Squid Girl) from Shinryaku! Ika Musume playing what seems to be the 1991 Advanced 大戦略 (Advanced Daisenryaku) for the Mega Drive. My brother played this game so much when we were younger that I’ll probably never forget the background music.
