Anyone out there watched the 2007 jdrama Galileo!? Well the movie is out!! Well soon….! It will be screening in Japan on 4 October 2008. *SIGH* It’s still quite a while away and will be ages until a DVD or subs will be released!!! Aaaaah!! 

The movie will be a new case and will be a intellectual battle between the main protagonist, Yukawa, our genius physicist and a genius mathematician. Oh dear! I think Utsumi will be quite lost here!! hahaha Oh and there’s also Shinichi Tsutsumi who I think plays the mathematician.

I was annoyed at the finale of the drama where we didn’t get to see Yukawa respond to Utsumi’s feelings!!! It’s like…WHAT?? They’re going to leave us hanging like this?!?! I was kind of annoyed. Anyway, I hope they address this in the movie and we get a satisfying ending like at least one BIG HUG!!! AHAHAHAHA Hey! I’m not that greedy!

Here’s the trailer!


For those not familiar to the name, this movie is a follow-up to the jdrama that finished in December 2007. 

The drama is mystery based where Kou is a rookie investigator, Kaoru Utsumi, who seeks the help of a genius physicist university professor, Manabu Yukawa (Masaharu). The formula is simple – every episode is one new case and each time Utsumi will show strange occurences to Yukawa claiming that it’s not possible or can only be explained by supernatural theories. Yukawa, who is a scientist believes all things can be explained by science so when presented to a difficult problem, he typically says “Omoshiroi” (means “interesting”) and dives into the investigation. It sounds kind of repetitive but it works cos Kou is pretty to watch and Masaharu is intelligent and definitely worth checking out!! He carries this air of confidence that should probably annoy you objectively speaking but you just ask for more!! ahaha I feel like Utsumi now! Love his professor/intelligent/slightly-nerdy-but-for some-strange-reason-still-dig-it look!! haha I mean, who wears waistcoats these days!?!?! LOL
