You know a famous anime movie for theater titled "PERPECT BLUE" was released in Tokyo "PARCO SPACE PART 3" (Shibuya) on 02/28/98. Thereafter the title was released in Osaka "Theatre Umeda" on 03/21/98. I saw it in Osaka on 03/21/98 and in Tokyo on 04/18/98.
Japan is in days of depression and has many male people out of work. Therefore many male part-timers went to Tokyo to get a hard job.
I live in Osaka but did not have any job there. I went to Yokohama to get a job. Thereafter I went to Nagoya to earn money. In the end of this March, I got a job in Tokyo. In the beginning of this April, I came to Tokyo.
I earn little money, so I am single, as my fans know well. Japan is in days of depression.
A famous voice actress, Junko Iwao was married last year. You know her former habit was computer programming. She had an official homepage. However she was married. I also left the page.
Many single male unemployed persons live in Tokyo. They seek for women. Of course they cannot feed those women.
Japan is in days of depression. Recently Ministry of Health and Welfare of Japan showed the influence of environmental hormones in Japan. Environmental hormones would make Japanese population decrease, they thought. Is it true? Japan is in days of depression.
If you stalk down a woman in Japan, you will be under arrest. In a case, you will be killed by her "husband." Japan is short of female.
You will see expensive automobiles in the daytime in Tokyo. For example, Tsutomu Miyazaki, a famous child killer, has a car to stalk down little female children. However many male physical workers including me cannot use cars for commuting because many companies inhibit them from using cars for commuting.
I do not have a car.
The planning of the movie started in November 1994. "Perfect Blue" was selected as the original novel for the movie. It was written by Mr. Yoshikazu Takeuchi in 1991.
Thereafter a famous cartoonist, Mr. Katsuhiro Ootomo cooperate REX Entertainment at the planning. Another famous cartoonist, Mr. Hisashi Eguchi made proto-type character design.
The "PERFECT BLUE" made Director Satoshi Kon a famous creator. He was a scenario writer for Katsuhiro Ootomo's "Memories."
In Japan, SPEED, Namie Amuro, and SMAP were called "Idol Stars." However former idol stars were very popular, for example, Miho Nakayama, Tomomi Nishimura and Seiko Matsuda. Recent idol stars is not very popular. Perhaps, an idol group "CHAM" from the movie consisting of Mima Kirigoe (CV = Junko Iwao), Yukiko (CV = Emiko Furukawa) and Rei (CV = Shiho Niiyama) was not so popular.
In fact, their concerts were held on the roof of a department store.
On the other hand, you know Junko Iwao played the main role of the movie. She was born in Ooita Prefecture on 02/18/1970. In the story, Mima Kirigoe was born in Ooita. She was leader of "CHAM." She was rather popular called "Mima-rin." Thereafter she had many jobs as an actress. So production president Tadokoro (CV = Shinpachi Tsuji) made Mima leave CHAM. Her manager Rumi (CV = Rika Matsumoto, a million-seller singer) was an unpopular idol. She wanted to sing popular songs more. She is a fat woman at present. She opposed Tadokoro's plan.
Uchida (CV = Masaaki Ookura) was a tall part-timer guardian for idol events. In the internet, he is famous as ME-MANIA. ME-MANIA was the webmaster of "Mima's Room." He always worked near CHAM. In a sense, he was a stalker. His information was very accurate.
He also opposed Tadokoro's plan.
The heroine Mima knew the page by chance. Her manager Rumi set up a terminal at Mima's house. The computer was a Macintosh.
My terminal at my office is also a Macintosh. The interface of Mima's terminal is the same as my terminal. It is terrible because the movie is a kind of psychological horror.
Her first job as a professional actress was the role of a killer from "DOUBLE BIND." In the movie, it was a TV drama program. In the real world, it was a drama program for Nippon Broadcasting Radio. The Double Bind, the Looking Glass of Perfect Blue was broadcast in 1997.
In the drama, she experienced a rape scene. Her another character appeared. "She" looked like young idol-style Mima. In the same time, Mima was chased by someone. She said, "Who are you?" She killed Shibuya (CV = Yoku Shioya, a rather famous actor), a scenario writer of Double Bind, Murano (CV = Masashi Ehara), a cameraman taking Mima's nude pictures, and ME-MANIA at last. Her virtual world overlapped with her real world as the drama "Double Bind."
"Her another character tried to kill herself. "Her" another character appeared in her manager Rumi. Rumi did masker as a former idol star Rumi. She wore a red dress. She tried to kill Mima. Rumi ran as fast as possible breathing with difficulty. However she tried to kill Mima. When Mima unmasked Rumi, Mima's another character faded away and Rumi went mad.
Rumi went to hospital, and Mima began to work as an actress again. "My name is Mima, it is true."
