Well it looks like it’s time to add yet another school girl murder mystery film to the pile. There is enough genre appeal here to keep churning these out; and this one will even feature Minami Minegishi from the the massively huge idol group AKB48 in her first leading role. It’s unclear from the trailer how much of a supernatural factor Girls’ High School will have as it seems to have its fair share of bright and bubbly flash back moments as they piece together the puzzle that lighten the mood. Expectations: Low Interest: Low
With such a great cast, this one looks to have a lot of charm and color. Ryuhei Matsuda has impressed in almost everything he’s appeared in since the early days of his career working with director Toshiaki Toyoda on Blue Spring (2001) and 9 Souls (2003). And Akira Emoto has been in everything under the sun in Japan. The Mohican Comes Home premiered last month at the Osaka Asian Film Festival and is sure to be on many other festival rosters this year. Expectations: Moderate Interest: High
