“We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.”– Martin Luther King, Jr.
No matter the century, humanity, in some form or fashion, has a need to destroy and subjugate beautiful things. The mentality applied is that the people doing the oppression “hate” the uniquely beautiful culture, skin tone, race that isn’t them.
This is a coming-of-age movie. Classified as a romcom, it seemed more like a journey through painful adolescent and misfortunes.
Loss is a universal theme that touches everyone in unique ways that are personal to them.
I am not a big fan of movies in general when compared to shows, because I always feel that the time constraints impose limitations on how much of a story can be told; most movies tend to fall short on doing justice to all the characters and subplots they introduce. In a rushed script, we are sometimes left hanging with respect to resolutions that the characters of the film deserve as people.
There is a duality to BL that fans have come to respect and understand. On the surface, it is a place of attractive men, high definition pictures, with the expected payoff of sensual kisses as a given.
This short movie is simply astonishing. It starts out as another gourmet themed BL series which seems to be the latest trend in Boys’ Love as opposed to college settings. The story line is not necessarily unique but because of great character development, excellent acting, and an immersed story, this movie has become an early favorite of mine in 2022.
Be careful when you watch this Christmas-themed movie. It could land you into a diabetic coma from its sweetness and cuteness. Please do not misunderstand me. It is not a bad movie; it just is not my cup of tea, so to speak. Sure, it may make you feel good and perhaps even smile, but its own reality is a true fantasy.
I’d like to know why the spells are in Japanese.
Japanese BL has long since had a presence worldwide for being unabashed; showing gay romance unapologetically and with respect.
