DttF plot summary, plus Haramiko theme short

As previously mentioned, the movie “Departed to the Future” will be part of the Yubari International Fantastic Film Festival, and now we know it will be shown on March 1. We also have a plot. The plot, to my relief, has nothing to do with I’ve, just some suicide/murder mystery about high school girls. Why the tenth anniversary of I’ve has anything to do with it, who knows?

The theme to Haramiko finally has a name and a download, the name is “fickle,” and the download is mediocre, but it’s not horrible.

The PV to RIDEBACK looks like it has the same problem as the song itself: two different PVs patched together with little regard for continuity.

Finally, BARKS has a complete photo album from Budokan, nearly 100 pictures worth.

  1. Interesting note: if you look at the character names for Departed to the Future…

    ■キャスト
    マミ 池澤あやか
    コト子 秋山奈々
    メル 楢原ゆりか
    カオリ 真下玲奈
    エイ子 森下千里

    Mami, Kotoko, Mell, Kaori and Eiko. Your I’ve connection right there.

  2. Also, links for some information (in Japanese, sorry) regarding the actresses for the movie:

    Ayaka Ikezawa (Mami)

    Nana Ikeyama (Kotoko)

    Chisato Morishima (Eiko)

  3. ^ Cool, I was just about to ask if maybe the girls in the movie somehow represented the I’ve girls. Don’t really have any opinions on the girls themselves. KOTOKO’s girl kind of looks similar to KOTOKO herself.

  4. haha… i’ve uta-himes are high schoolers huh ??? oh… my brain’s somehow not working so well –;;
    don’t know what to say, but MELL’s girl ain’t SEXY !!! –ll

    and about ‘fickle’… again… KOTO-cute… –;;

    and the last… THANKS HIKARUHOSHII~~~ x3 i love the pictures :P

  5. I shall rank those girls in order of cutesy-ness.
    Kaori, Mami, Kotoko, Mell, Eiko.

    Kaori’s one is super cute, and Mami’s is good too. But still, I won’t say I like them acting with I’ve girls names. After all, they’re gravure idols, it’s like degrading the I’ve ppl.

    -I’ve a suspicion that aibu and hikaru are chinese, because there was no update during the Chinese New Year period. xD

  6. Wait until you actually see the movie before judging these girls… and how is playing as them in a movie degrading?

    Haha, those two aren’t Chinese btw.

  7. “I’ve a suspicion that aibu and hikaru are chinese, because there was no update during the Chinese New Year period. xD”

    Actually there wasn’t an update because there wasn’t any news to report during that period :P

  8. “Kaori’s one is super cute, and Mami’s is good too. But still, I won’t say I like them acting with I’ve girls names. After all, they’re gravure idols, it’s like degrading the I’ve ppl.”

    Dear God, I prayed I must never have this discussion after the BeForU incident. They are Gravure models, yes, AV Idols, no. Gravure models only take pictures in bikinis. AV Idols are porn stars. They’re the same as America swimsuit models and there’s nothing wrong with that. Making a living is not degrading in any way, shape, or form. They’ve gotta pay the bills someway. They I’ve girls have been doing the theme songs for adult video games for years, and all of a sudden Gravure models playing characters with their names is degrading? If I were to think one of the two were degrading, I’d say it’d be doing the theme songs for games with bunches of girls getting pounded by no-faced guys to be the more degrading of the two.

  9. “They I’ve girls have been doing the theme songs for adult video games for years, and all of a sudden Gravure models playing characters with their names is degrading?”
    Good point, though I had always assumed that the singers and the eroges almost never had anything more in common than the song. These are swimsuit models acting as perhaps the I’ve singers themselves.
    On the plus side, I don’t think there will be much I’ve fanservice in the movie.

  10. Well it’s not as bad as AV Idols being villians in Super Sentai in the past few years.

  11. Ok ok….you guys win the gravure discussion ok? It was just my opinion.

    I’m incredulous that Index still hasn’t changed the song. I think the ep17 will be masterpiece, but it’s seriously very late because the release of the single is next wednesday. People would not have adapted to the song yet and they would not be crazy enough to buy the single on its release. Therefore I predict the position of masterpiece on Oricon will be quite low. IMO, this is crappy planning by Geneon, really.

  12. I think it may just be J.C. Staff. Shana’s new OPs always started kinda late too. What ever happened to the new OP starting at the 13th episode?!

  13. the single leaked out early as expected. :o and I’d say jellyfish is definitely great! So trance-y <3~ Much greater than masterpiece. :x

  14. yeah, how come mami’s singles are always leaked lately ?? and i’m still on vacation so i can’t download it yet. but i’ve streamed the PV and it’s so coooll xD xD

    but gotta say i’m abit dissapointed with her JAILED clothes… i thought it would be cooler hahaha…
    and she’s getting thinner and thinner lately… WHY ?! –”

  15. Well, if you haven’t noticed, Eiko’s gained weight lately. Mami actually used to be the original thick I’ve girl.

  16. Can we not talk about this?

  17. ^ Oh I apologize for starting the off-topic convo. =.=’

    Btw, I’m moderately liking “fickle” although I’m a bit of a sucker for “KOTO-cute”. x.X’

    And even if RIDEBACK has an inconsequential scenes at the preview of PV, I still like it. XD Especially MELL’s clothes because she’s like, imitating Arika Takarano of ALI PROJECT. And the song sounds like 40%BLAZE+50%kicks!+10%WHEEL OF FORTUNE = RIDEBACK. XD
