Antoki no Inochi starring Okada Masaki and Eikura Nana Trailer

Why am I only seeing this now? WHYYYYY? Anyway, here is the trailer. Two of my most favorite people in J-ent together. /giddy Masaki’s acting just keeps getting better with every project! That’s right, good job, ~mah boy~. ❤ And the projects just keep coming! I think he hasn’t rested last 2010 and this 2011 because the number of movies he just did is insane! I am so proud! Onto the trailer, those tears and the way he just broke down. Then when he smiles, it’s as if it’s connected to my lips and mine also curve upwards. He seriously has a contagious smile. And I love it! And let’s not forget Nana who’s crying bucketloads too. When this girl cries, I cry too. I remember wailing while watching April Bride. *sobsob* Anyway, before I get too emotional (from pride and happiness for Masaki and from sadness due to April Bride), I’m gonna stop blabbering. Enjoy!

Koibumi ~Love Letter~ – GReeeeN PV starring Okada Masaki

Above is the shorter version of the music video (PV as the Japanese calls it) to GReeeeN‘s new song, Koibumi ~Love Letter~. It features Okada Masaki as a young doctor (yeap, he’s even too young to be a doctor) who has romantic feelings for his patient.

This new single from GReeeeN has been previously announced as the theme song for Okada Masaki and Eikura Nana‘s upcoming movie, Antoki no Inochi (Life Back Then). The movie is directed by Zeze Takahisa and won the Innovation Award in the 35th Montreal World Film Festival.  Antoki no Inochi is set to be released on November 19 on theaters.

The single Koibumi ~Love Letter~ will be released on November 16. Below is the longer version of the PV. That means… more Masaki! ❤

And under the cut are stills from the music video and the album jacket for the single. Enjoy!

Okada Masaki and Eikura Nana promoting Antoki no Inochi at the Tokyo International Film Festival

I love these two individually so it is just natural for me to love them together. Uhm, I’m sort of doubting that hairstyle on Masaki and what’s with the jacket but he still carries everything perfectly. I think I miss long-haired Nana. I dunno why but I love her long hair as Erika in ProDai. Not that I don’t love her Mei-chan hair since I love that drama to bits. (Mizushima Hiro, I miss you SO MUCH. HUHU) Anyway, credit goes to tokyograph for the pictures!

Zeze Takahisa’s Antoki no Inochi (Life Back Then) won the Innovation Award in the 35th Montreal World Film Festival. The film stars Okada Masaki and Eikura Nana. The story revolves around Nagashima Kyohei (Okada), who works for a small company whose job is to look through, sort and dispose articles of the deceased. He meets Kubota Yuki (Eikura), who helps him with his work. Nagashima, who locked up his heart due to an incident during his high school days, slowly opens up to her until one day he discovers her shocking past. Antoki no Inochi will open in Japanese theaters on November 19.

So proud of Masaki! He absolutely chooses the best projects out there. Either they win awards or they rake in money and/or fans. He hasn’t done a movie that has failed. Matataki (Piecing Me Back Together) has been in the top 10 movies in Japan for several weeks within its opening. More power to Masaki! ❤

Read about Okada Masaki and Eikura Nana starring together in a film a while back but wasn’t able to blog about it. I mean, how couldn’t I blog about it? Two of my favorite Japanese people together in a movie? That’s just more than I could ask for.

Okada Masaki and Eikura Nana stars in Zeze Takahisa’s film, Antoki no Inochi, which is based on a novel by singer Sada Masashi.

The story revolves around Nagashima Kyohei (Okada), who works for a small company whose job is to look through, sort and dispose articles of the deceased. He meets Kubota Yuki (Eikura), who helps him with his work. Nagashima, who locked up his heart due to an incident during his high school days, slowly opens up to her until one day he discovers her shocking past.

Aside from that, GreeeeN has lent the movie their awesomeness by letting them use one of their songs, “Koibumi ~Love Letter~” as the movie’s theme song.

Antoki no Inochi has been selected for the World Competition segment of the 35th Montreal World Film Festival, which will be held from August 18 to 28. Antoki no Inochi will premiere on August 19 and it is still being decided whether Zeze, Okada and Eikura will be attending the screening.

“Antoki no Inochi” opens in theaters in Japan on November 19, 2011.
