On Thursday I met up with some of my favorite (revolutionary) girls to catch one of the movies at this year's Eiga Sai at Shang. Ashley, Ingrid, Sachi and I watched Chihayafuru 2, which was showing in the afternoon. The original plan was to watch Chihayafuru 1 the day before, but we had to change plans so we watched part 2 instead. I didn't have time to watch part 1, but I have read the manga up until after a certain arc, so I wasn't worried about not understanding anything lol. Rather, I was more worried about whether or not the live action adaptation would give Queen Shinobu justice. (Not a spoiler: it did – Matsuoka Mayu was amazing. Shinobu remains flawless in the manga, anime, and live action.) As someone who read the manga, I thought the movie was pretty good. I have this annoying tendency to always compare anime and live action adaptations to the original material, so as much as possible I try to watch adaptations first before reading the manga or light novel. Or I just don't watch the anime or live action versions completely. I'm glad we watched Chihayafuru though. The visuals were great, plus I really liked the parts with Fukui-ben.

After the movie ended, we met up with Ciara for dinner at BonChon. After that, we all went to see the Japan-themed mini-exhibits and displays around Shang. My favorite part was the area with the torii (Japanese gate) and lanterns. So pretty. The kimono on display were all very beautiful as well. I rarely take pictures (of myself) with things like these so I'm glad I was with friends who I could act like a tourist with LOL

If you have the time to drop by Shang, you can still catch Chihayafuru 2 on the 16th. There's also an "Everything Japanese Lifestyle Fair" happening until the 25th, so there are lots of activities to enjoy. But if you want to watch part 1 first, they'll be showing it at UP Diliman on August 16th, and part 2 on August 18th. You can check the full list of Eiga Sai 2017 films and screening schedules here.
