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. (Red lanterns always remind me of Shiina Ringo's performance at the 66th Kouhaku Uta Gassen..) 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.
