Title: You're my Pet / Tramps like us
Original Title: きみはペット (Kimi wa Petto)
Director: Kato Arata, Kaneko Fuminori, Takanari Mahoko
Length: 10 episodes ~45minutes
Sumire (played by Koyuki) is a business woman but loses her job. When she comes home she finds a guy (played by Matsumoto Jun) in a box in front of her house. Calling him Momo she decides to keep the guy as a pet. After a while they grow feelings for each other.
Well, how should I start? The cast isn't really what I like. Neither I do like Koyuki nor Matsumoto Jun. So that might be why I kind of dislike the Dorama from the beginning. Anyway I found the idea of keeping him as a pet cute and so I went on watching it. It was funny and at least a bit romantic. But in the end it's not really what I like. I prefere other dorama that's not only about finding your true love or whatever. It's strange though since I actually like nice romances.

Aya who is a girl of the "Zero Church" tries to get the family for her church. Besides Yu everyone believes what she says and so they become a part of Aya's church. Yu finally tries to get Yoko out of there by using a bomb...
As you can see it's a very long movie with very much story. Every character gets explained You can see the history of them. Also there are connections to other movies (Sasori for example). I guess these details make the movie so special and so interesting. I really enjoyed watching it since it has a huge plot which I love! Also ist very exciting and dramating. There's a lot of action but also some triggering angst. Still it's a romance in the end and I shed a lot of tears!
Title: P.O.V.: A Cursed Film

Genre: Horror / Mocumentary
Length: 92 minutes
This movie is about two girls who are filming some TV show. They watch some footage in the studio but there seems something wrong with it. Suddenly they see some strange woman in the window reflection. They decide to go to the place where the footage was filmed and end up in a school one of the girls went to during middle school. They feel being followed and some strange happenings take place.
I really like the start of the movie. It's really exciting and I got scared many times. The part at school is also made very good and the actors behave very natural. It's really sad that the end of the movie is so disappointing. It wasn't scary anymore. It got boring but somehow funny in a very bad way.

Nozomi is the sex doll of Hideo. One day she suddenly comes alive but won't tell her owner about it. For him she's still a normal sex doll. She looks for work and goes to a movie store were she starts and get to know Junichi. They fall in love but it's not that easy with a doll that's filled with air.
First I was surprised about a Korean starring a Japanese in a Japanese movie. Also because of the fact she is Korean her Japanese was different wich was kind of strange. But when I got used to it I really enjoyed this movie. I like the dialogs and the way everything is represented. It's a very quiet movie anyway and there's a special atmosphere about it. I really would watch it again.
