Tennis no Oujisama live action movie~  
I just finished watching the Tennis no Oujisama NAVIGATE DVD. It's a special dvd that was released today that is basically a "making of" the new Prince of Tennis movie!! It's over an hour long, with all sorts of footage shot on set and from the movie. Having been a fan of Tenimyu for a long time now, I was REALLY excited about this movie!! But the DVD, if possible, made me MORE excited!! =^____^= I'm REALLY REALLY looking forward to it!!! It looks hilarious!!!!

Ah the special effects!! Wow!!!!! They look so cool and so MUCH like in the anime/manga! It's like watching Tenimyu, since it has almost the same cast, only without the gay dancing and with the cool special effects and real story!!! ♪

Notes: *AHAHAHAA!! Atobe's fangirls are SO hilarious!!! I think that they made a good casting choice in Atobe, too. He REALLY can pull off the part!
*Juri is playing Dabide!!! ROFLOL!! *ded*
*The one thing I DON'T like is the new female character. I don't even like her offscreen. X.x I LOVE Sakuno, and not only did they leave Sakuno out of the movie, they make it clear that thisgirl is taking her place! X.x They set up the SAME EXACT scenes that Sakuno was in in the manga and replace her with this girl.. Ryoma's "ki ni naru hito" blaaaaah. They only changed her so that she looks like every japanese girl so that every japanese girl can fantasize about being this girl. They should have just left in Sakuno, a character that we love...x.x I don't care to fantasize about being Ryoma's whatever. Gah.
*Scene with Ryoma and Nanjiro in the bathtub together! ROFLOL!!!!!! They just HAD to put that in? XD;;;;

Viva la Sakuno!! ;o; *cheers for her* I'm so sad that she's left out of this movie!!

But Horio's in there, so there's a happy quality! ^o^

JURI as Dabide? xD Aww, that's going to be hilarious~ do you know any of the other castings? Kamakari, Aoyagi, etc.?

Sakunoooo~ ;_; I still don't understand why'd they'd change her in the first place. *sad*

Aaaaagh I can't wait until it comes ouuuuuuuuuuutttt :]

I felt guilty for crushing on Yanagi because he looked like he was 12 (but I justified it because he's 1/2 a decade older than I am) HOW AM I GOING TO JUSTIFY IT WITH THIS ADLFKJADKLFJ ADORABLE RYOMA? *checks into jail herself* xD

I saw Kamakari Kentai in there... he's some neff on Hyoutei's team, I think. (He was just dressed in regular tennis clothes). I didn't see anyone else that hasn't been mentioned before, I don't think...

I really like the new Ryoma! I'm probably more than twice as old as him, XD. So don't worry!! ^^ It isn't like you want to sleep with him, right? ^^

Wow! o______o! This all sounds so awesome.

Why did they replace Sakuno with someone like her? Eesh. X_x My dislike for Sakuno isn't strong enough that I'd hope she doesn't have a part in a big movie. n_n

Juri. XD WHAT? And I still think the Atobe guy looks way too much like a surfer guy to be suave!Atobe. Well, I'll see. :0 I changed my mind about Ryoma guy, so it might changed for Atobe guy too.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on April 21st, 2006 06:59 am (UTC)
The reason is obviously exactly what I said. This new girl looks like 90% of all the schoolgirls in Japan. She's VERY normal-looking. They changed her so that all of the schoolgirls can imagine themselves as Ryoma's love object. Blech. I hate stuff like that.
jean_kun on April 21st, 2006 06:42 am (UTC)
Uwah~ You're getting me more and mroe excited about the movie! So are all the Ichinensei in the movie, or is it just Horio? I can't reiterate enough how much I love the ichinensei from Tenimyu XDDD Ever since I first saw the trailers and flyers for this movie online, I felt that the actor paying Ryoma was a *perfect choice*. I like that he's so young and can pull the part of Ryoma off nicely. He's so snarky in the trailer: "Daijoubu, Senpai?" *squeeee!*

What? They replaced Sakuno with a girl that wants to be his girlfriend? -_-; That kind of annoys me. But Juri as Dabide amuses me to no end. I hope he makes some puns, oh yes, the puns XDDD

So Atobe's actor is a good choice then? That's good to know. I was disappointed when Katou Kazuki wasn't going to play him in the movie, especially since he's so GORGEOUS experienced playing him already. XD But I'm looking forward to it now ^o^

Nanjiroh and Ryoma in the bath...TOGETHER?! Pfft XDDD

*squeeeee with you* I like that Ryoma part too... is so teasing Kaidoh-sempai XD posted some caps of it in my LJ XP

OMG Juri as Dabide... now I'm afraid of that movie X_x''' *lol*

Somehow I'm also sorry for Sakuno... I just started to like her (more) and now she's not there (Please tell me they don't have a Tomoka, THAT would be something I couldn't survive ~_~).

(My feelings towards the 'new' Hyotei aren't that clear, I'm a huge Hyotei Fan and the only ones I like so far are Gakuto, Ootori (naturally) and MAYBE Atobe... have you maybe seen anything of Shishido!?)
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on April 21st, 2006 07:12 am (UTC)
Uhh.. but I like Tomo. I want her to be in this movie in SOME form. Even if it's changed like Sakuno.

Oh? I never knew Sakuno was replaced with some OC...that's sad. I don't really like her too much, but she amuses me sometimes...bleargh. And no Tomoka either. What's the name of the new character?
I wanna see this movieeeeeee....T.T
Hi-chan (火ちゃん): PoT - Sakura Sakunohinoai on April 21st, 2006 10:29 am (UTC)
For more information about the new character, see http://community.livejournal.com/gekipuri/tag/cinepuri

We've talked about her quite a few times, actually. ^^

Yamato-buchou? Which team is that? I always forget names...

I couldn't STAND Iwata Sayuri when she was interviewed by the camera. X.x All "timid" and whatnot. She's in show business, I hate it when people put on an act like that just to get guys. YUCK YUCK YUCK.

r e i: ryoma got game_killabarbierei_desu on April 21st, 2006 09:53 am (UTC)
Aww, I like Sakuno! Replacing her with someone err, generic probably makes commercial sense in some twisted 'only-the-producers-know-hell-why' way, but on the bright side, generic-girl's now someone to totally ignore in the movie (^_^)

I'm impressed with Ryoma's actor, he has that essential snarkiness in place XD. Still on the fence about Atobe's actor though. He's got some pretty big shoes to fill :P The Hyoutei fangirls sound like something to watch out for :D

Btw, how does one buy cinema tickets in Japan? Coincidentally I'll be there the week the movie opens, and I am *so* going~! However, I know zip Japanese :P I read somewhere that movie tickets are sold at convenience stores and it's cheaper, but seating is not fixed? Would it be easier (but more expensive) to just buy it at the cinema itself? Any help would be appreciated, TQ~!
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on April 21st, 2006 10:17 am (UTC)
You can just get them at the cinema itself, of course. ^^ They just won't be special tickets with pretty pictures on them, that you have to get beforehand.

Kyaa~! Arigato ne, I'm getting more exited for it XD
Kanata is so much love, he’s being cocky little Ryoma is just sooo kawaii ^__^

But who's the new girl? The young girl featured in the trailers? I really thought that she was Sakuno but have doubted and now you confirmed it… thanks, but gahhh what’s the point of replacing her for fantasizing matters, the story is already different with a different character… anyway, there’s also no point bashing it anymore >.>

What really makes me so excited for this movie is the participation of both the old and new (eh, also old…) cast from Tenimyu^^

And bathtub? *giggles*
Hi-chan (火ちゃん): PoT - Cool Ryomahinoai on April 21st, 2006 10:28 am (UTC)
If you check these threads, we've gone over who she is quite a few times ^^ http://community.livejournal.com/gekipuri/tag/cinepuri

Bathtub!! XDXD Dude when I was 11, I never would have taken a bath with my parents! ^_^;;;;

Your post has made me even more excited about watching the movie. I really want to see all that special moves~~ ^o^

It's too bad though, Sakuno wasn't a bad character. I don't get why they'd replace her with someone totally different u___u
C L O V E R: yanagi : ya na giidyllica on April 21st, 2006 01:53 pm (UTC)
I knew the boy will play Ryoma well because he has played in previous roles in different sorts of movies like Moon Child with Gackt and Hyde. He played as Shou who apparently was Gackt. So it was great. ♥ There is also a plus side to his personality, he is absoutely adorable! ♥
As for Sakuno. I really wanted to see her in the movie. At least have some Sakunoa and Ryoma action but apparently not. sniffles
Magbabysyusuke on April 21st, 2006 03:06 pm (UTC)
I hope it's just me...

I've been thinking the Cine Ryoma looks likes Nagayan in certain angle >.

ah! i love dabide!
thanks for writing this up <3 since i might not get to see the actual dvd -_- btw, how do you afford all the myu merchandise?!
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on April 22nd, 2006 01:38 am (UTC)
LOL I work fulltime as a professional, so I make more than enough money to afford merchandise and show tickets and things like that ^__^

美夢: RyoSaku is kawaii!!!_miyuchan_ on April 21st, 2006 05:28 pm (UTC)
Woah woah, so they show other members? I'm still curious about Nagayan's role^O^

And just now that Konomi showed us that he didn't forget about her, how stupid replace her with a Mary Sue...
And I really wonder why...grrrr it makes me sooooooooooo angry è_é

But then I'm looking forward for the other actors^^
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on April 22nd, 2006 01:42 am (UTC)
I didn't see Nagayan at all. The only chance you get to see the other members is when you see them walking around or in a random shot. They're not introduced. I really wish that SOMEONE would outline all of their roles in the movie. They put out that fan at JUMPFesta with all of their names, but it seems they can't be bothered to let us know who they're playing. :X Waaah.

Gah I know. I wonder WHY in the world Konomi approved her showing up. X.x Why not Sakuno? Why make this girl sit on the train almost getting hit by a racket until Ryoma saves her? (EXACTLY like the first episode only with this ugly Mary Sue!)
氷雨 ☆kioyuki on April 22nd, 2006 12:17 pm (UTC)
Nyaa~~ that makes mee wanna watch it soo much!! >___< Can't wait to see the new kawaii Ryo-kun~ (I'm getting more & more attracted to him.. omg!)

Totally agreeess about Sakuno... T^T I luv her nya~ why should they leave her out??! (How I wished to see those scenes in ani/manga of her with Ryoma... the kyute & shy girl.)

"Scene with Ryoma and Nanjiro in the bathtub together"
OMG!! O_O;; That's a MUST see for sure!! Lmao~~ XD
