Just finished feeding my obsession with a certain Japanese actor by watching A Sleeping Forest and oh boy, was that a roller coaster ride.

I normally don't like angsty mysterious series or movies and I wasn't too sure about this particular series, but when I started to watch the first ep I had to keep watching. One scene in particular made me go: Ah so deska! My recent obsession with Takuya Kimura is not so recent after all - more like a ten year obsession. About half-way into ep one there is a scene which I deja vu'd. I remember having seen it about ten years ago when I stayed in our local manga shop (my hometown has the biggest Japanese community outside of Japan in Europe) and that series must have been shown as I remember that scene in the forest. I actually watched the rest of the ep in that very shop. Strange how life goes in circles.
Anyway, this time I have caught up on the whole series and woah, it was a tear jerker.


summary:
Nemureru Mori is about a late twenty year old woman who suffered an awful tragedy as a child. Minako can only sketchily remember her past as a child, and three months before her intended wedding with Kiichiro she finds letters that were send to her in her childhood.
