Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso — The Only Truth is in Music

“Everyone’s scared to stand up on stage in front of an audience. You’re afraid that you might mistakes. That they’ll totally reject you. Even so, you grit your teeth and get up onstage anyway. Something compels us, moves us to play music. That’s how you create the most beautiful lie of all.”

The Quote Hoarder | Letters to Juliet

Dear Claire,

What” and “If” are two words as non-threatening as words can be. But put them together side-by-side and they have the power to haunt you for the rest of your life: What if? What if? What if? I don’t know how your story ended but if what you felt then was true love, then it’s never too late. If it was true then, why wouldn’t it be true now? You need only the courage to follow your heart. I don’t know what a love like Juliet’s feels like – love to leave loved ones for, love to cross oceans for but I’d like to believe if I ever were to feel it, that I will have the courage to seize it. And, Claire, if you didn’t, I hope one day that you will.

All my love, Juliet

L’s legacy lives on as another detective takes up his mantle and engaging in another cat and mouse chase with the death note holders — or so it would it seem in the cover and description. Continue reading “Death Note Lighting Up My Laptop Screen”

Daytime Shooting Star (Hirunaka no Ryuusei)

Well, this was another impulsive watch. I should probably make a category of that: ‘my impulsive watches’ but then that would not be impulsive anymore.  Continue reading “Daytime Shooting Star (Hirunaka no Ryuusei)”

So, Let’s talk about Netflix’s Death Note.

For anime fans and manga readers (like me), you’re probably familiar already with how the story goes. But for those who haven’t read or watched the manga or anime, well maybe you will get an idea of the plot if you had the chance to catch Netflix’s version of it. Continue reading “Death Note (2017)”
