Anticipated Japanese Movie: SPEC ~ Close ~ starring Toda Erika & Kase Ryo
For those of you who have not heard of SPEC, this movie is actually one of the final installments of the very awesome SPEC series which stars Toda Erika as the heroine Toma and Kase Ryo as Sebumi. As for the other SPEC fans who are still going strong after watching ALL of the drama, the SP, and the movies..guess what there is one more movie to come! The movie leaves off after the previous movie, SPEC ~ Heaven ~, this time revealing the mysterious new villain played by MUKAI OSAMU. OMGAWD.
^EPIC, YOU KNOW IT.
Just watch the trailer first, it is really intense:
OK. NOW. The trailer starts out with some typical Toma x Sebumi humor, Toma dramatically throwing up all her papers in the air, etc…but then all of a sudden it gets REALLY SERIOUS AND INTENSE AND OMG OMG IS TOMA GONNA DIE!?!??! NOOOO!!!!! I MEAN..IN THE ENDING SHE SAYS SOMETHING ALONG THE LINES OF “PLEASE KILL ME” and we see things blowing up at the same time she uses her SPEC power. Maybe she will use her SPEC once again to defeat the final villain but it will go out of control so she will ask Sebumi to end it for her? ARGHHH!!!!!!!!!!! Well obviously it seems like the final movie in the series will be much darker than the previous ones. I think SPEC is really going all out, I mean just look at its tagline:
“This world, it’s ******* up to you.”
O___O There are also TONS of awesome promo posters and stills that have been released, all of which have a very gritty dark feel to them. I mean LOOK AT THIS:
LOOK VERY CLOSELY. I SERIOUSLY THINK SEBUMI HAS LOST HIS RIGHT EYE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAAAAAAAT?!?!?! I also love the poster below, love how it relates to the official poster for the drama except this time there are Toma and Sebumi ~TOGETHER~. I just hope this isn’t symbolism for..um..eternal sleep……..
Here is another video of some short teasers as well as a very brief recap of the SPEC drama/movies that lead up to this final movie! The new teasers start around 2:05, with Toma and Sebumi being funny and eccentric as usual. 😛
For some reason there are two airdates for this movie; apparently there might be 2 parts or something? I’m not sure. The first airdate is November 1st, 2013 for SPEC Close～Progress Version (or: SPEC～Ketsu～Zen no hen) and the 2nd airdate is for November 29th, 2013 for SPEC Close～Crisscross Version (SPEC～Ketsu～Kou no hen). HMM. I’m not sure if there exactly what these 2 versions are. o_O
Anyways I am totally looking forward to the epic finale of SPEC, I loved the SPEC ~Heaven~ movie so I have high expectations for SPEC ~Close~. I am also a bit scared to see SPEC end because I don’t want to let go of one of my favorite pairs-Toma & Sebumi! You can read more about the synopsis of the movie here.
