Bits & Pieces 021

A round-up of the latest buzz from Johnny’s World that involves movies and film festivals.

  • Did anyone manage to see “Ansatsu Kyoshitsu” (Asssassination Classroom) at Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival (BiFan) in South Korea? Well, the movie starring Hey!Say!JUMP’s Yamada Ryosuke won the “BiFan 2015: Federation Award for Best Asian Film” as chosen by representatives of European Fantastic Film Festival Federation (EFFFF). The movie grossed 2.77 billion Yen in Japan, have a sequel in the making, and is also expected to be shown in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore. Omedatou to all the cast!

  • Another winner in Fantasy Category is Kanjani8‘s Shibutani Subaru at the 19th Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal, Canada. Subaru was named as the “Best Actor” for his portrayal as the amnesiac turned band vocalist in “Misono Universe” with an international title of “La La La at Rock Bottom“. You’re now a certified actor Subaru!
  • From fantasy, to a semi-fantasy/period drama turned movie, expect to see Kis-My-Ft2‘s Fujigaya Taisuke in his retainer role for the movie version of popular manga and drama “Nobunaga Concerto“. Let’s all see him swoon toward Nobunaga (Shun Oguri) and long-hair Taipi isn’t so bad.

That’s all for now, let’s join Taipi in swooning over his gorgeous master.

  1. I’m so happy Subaru has been receiving praises left and right for his performance in Misono Universe ,this win in Canada is just the cherry on top of all the good reviews for his acting in all the festivals the movie attended … I mean just check in google the reviews from movie sites that don’t know a thing about johnnys …. they’re all praising him and labelling his acting as impressive 🙂

    Hope this just encourages him to continue doing movies , it’s okay if he doesnt want to do dramas xD as long as he keeps acting . Congrats Babu!

  2. I watched both Yamada’s Ansastu and Subaru ‘Misono universe’ and both movies were very boring esp subaru movie (sorry,eventhough I like subaru but honestly he can’t act ) seems the win only because popularity and that he was promoted the movie at europe


    • I havn’t seem Yamada’s movie yet, but I saw a couple of episodes from the anime….and to be honest I dont like it it was really boring….so I would expect the movie to be the same….I pretty sure that the popularity and the “2.77 billion Yen” are coming from the cast: yamada, nino, and Kang.
      It’s just my opinion!


    • Ansatsu is already popular as a manga, so I guess that irregardless of who starred in the movie, it will be a hit since it has lot of fan base. As for the boring part, just like with other manga, it gets better as you read on
