Adrift In Tokyo (Tenten) Screen Caps
I took the screen shots from the DVD trailer so the scenes are sprinkled throughout the film, not the usual first five or ten minutes of the show that I usually use but there are no spoilers, it just gives a kind of feel to this slice of life comedy drama. The last Odagiri Joe movie I posted about Mushishi I thought was slow especially when he was just walking around and this movie is him just walking around Tokyo so I expected it to be slow and ponderous but it was anything but. The plot is really simple and I won’t go into it at all to avoid spoilers, but this movie is really about the characters and how they come to know and care for each other over the course of a few days. Aside from the great acting, the Tokyo streets are the setting and the characters go all around the city from the back alleys, residential areas, shopping districts even to a cosplay club. I’d highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys slice of life shows like Antique or Haikei, Chichiue-sama or someone that’d just love to see Tokyo, from many different angles not just from a tour bus.
