The final release for our 1 year anniversary special is the Berikyuu movie, Ousama Game (in HD)!
Ousama Game is technically a horror film, but unlike so many films of that genre that rely on cheap scares and tricks to entertain, Ousama Game's draw is in its story (it is based on a novel, after all). There are a few twists so I'll keep this post spoiler free because the movie is much more enjoyable that way. However, I will do a quick overview of the story so those who are unfamiliar will know at least the basics.
A high school class (containing the Berryz and C-ute members, Morisaki, and a few other familiar faces like Sakurada Dori [the guy from Suugaku Joshi Gakuen] and Yossie as the teacher) one day received a mysterious text message forcing them to play an Ousama Game ("King's Game"), instructing two classmates to do a seemingly harmless random task. The text's origins are unknown, so everyone takes it as a joke, until people start dying.
Watch as Yurina (playing the lead role of Honda Chiemi) and the rest of the class struggle to solve the mystery known as Ousama Game before it's too late.
For me, Gomennasai is definitely the better horror movie, but Ousama Game is a great movie in its own right, for its suspense and the wonderful ride that it takes the viewers on as they try to unravel the mystery behind it all. As a Hello! Project fan, of course I get extra enjoyment out of seeing the Berikyuu members act in various roles (almost all of which are quite different from their normal personalities). With that said, I think everyone did a fine job in the roles they were called upon to do.
