Taiyou no uta. :)

im just finish watching this movie. and i love it! here is the synopsis

A girl who can only live at night and a high school student who loves to surf as the sun rises...The two had nothing in common...Kaoru Amane, 16 years old, did not attend school but instead sang herself away every night after dark at a square in front of a train station with a guitar in her hands. She led a lifestyle opposite the norm, sleeping during the day and active at night. Kaoru was suffering from xeroderma pigmentosum (XP), an illness, which also might be described as the allergy to the sun, and was not allowed to be exposed to sunlight. The only motivation in her life was singing, which also was the only connection to the outside world. One day, an incident drastically changes her life...Kaoru returns home at 4:00 am, before sunrise. Outside her room window, she spots a high school student standing with a surf board in his hands. It becomes her routine to watch him and his friends come and go to the ocean every morning, before going to sleep. Their destined encounter takes place during the few hours before the break of day, drawing together two individuals that would have never met in daylight. However, Kouji does not know about her illness. The two rapidly fall for one another and continues to meet in the city at night. Then one day, an incident leads Kouji to learn of Kaoru's illness. Kaoru gives up her first love telling herself that, "I shouldn't have allowed myself to dream of a happy life. I am not normal after all." She even gives up singing. Kouji seeing Kaoru at such a state encourages her by suggesting, "Let's meet only at night," and comes up with a brilliant present for her. She had been leading a life carefully placing herself beyond the reach of harm, with no intent to pursue a dream. However, Kouji had shone a light on her heart making her want to sing once again. However, her illness which has quietly progressed, has started to pressure her nerve system, keeping her from playing the guitar at her will...

First and foremost, i would like to apoligize for quite a delay for this movie. Second apology for not being able to hardsub or typeset the movie - gomennasai. It's been very busy with my academic life recently (October is the end of our semester and i can feel the rush of deadlines coming..). Anyway, why did i acquire this movie? One of my favorite JPop Icons - YUI - stars in this movie. Heck, being a fan of her for almost a year (from the release of her single "Life", yea the Bleach anime ending song) i was surprised that it's her first acting role - so i really should have this :P Honestly, I haven't fully watched the movie...got no time recently - but while i skim through the time bar of the player, I can tell that Yui did a good job as Kaoru Amane (it really suits her). The parts where she performed in the streets reminds me of Yui's early days when she performs - sitting in the floor having only a guitar and her voice - that's her very natural stance in performing (if you watch some of her lives, she performs like that; and that stance also landed her in a professional career). Go download it - it's a tearjerker, by the way - it's a very good movie nevertheless. And oh, enjoy the other parts i acquired and uploaded that is related to the movie.


btw, i would like to share the theme song .
