In the winter of 2008, two climbers encountered the Taiwanese legendary monster ' Moxina (2012) '(a.k.a. Mô-sîn-á) at the evil mountain 'Wuzhishan'. Ryota Nakanishi presents sixteen minutes of bizarre, surreal imagery.
A crafty mysterious gentleman Ken Matsudaira comes to a riverside park and office where three pretty girls have their problems on male-and-female relationships and decides to instruct them on their problems to free them.
Whereas the first movie was very faithful to the Manga series, the plot in this part is quite different. This is not a bad thing per se, but I was a bit disappointed that Manjome and dream navigator Tagasuki were represented as 1-dimensional characters who are aware of all of friend's plans. Also, there a scene where Maniome basically says what is going to happen next that totally spoils the movie's climax. I believe a lot of people who are not familiar with the Manga series will either not fully understand what is going on or find the movie boring.
My friends and I agree that three movies are simply not enough to retell the complex story of the Manga series. A TV show would probably have been a better approach.
Overall, I still give this movie 5 stars, because it is entertaining and the few more exciting scenes are well executed.
