A boy supported Qin's unification behind the history.
Takao Osawa's performance was wonderful! It was so weird! (just compliment)
After watching this, how do I see him? What should I think of my memory that I cried a lot like a child in old drama? He was suited a bronze pike better than a 'Shield of Straw.'
This movie is based on a historical fiction comic that depicts Qin's unification of China in 221 BCE. It's already been about 3 years since I wanted to read it. I didn't expect I watched the movie before reading! Although I dislike Japanese movies, I went to a theator with my mother who was crazy for Ryo Yoshizawa.
From the last half, I was so excited! At first, to be honest I felt boring because of Japanese unique elements : CG, the overacting and etc...
But the development of the last half gave me heat up like a manga for boys! What controls people is also people.
I felt it like a digest of TV dramas. I felt the wipes of scenes worse. Thus it had some holes that threw a wet blanket on the story. But actually I just enjoyed it so much because I watched it without spoiler.
Now, the golden week( a national long holiday in Japan) has finished and the kingdom week has begun...!
