I look and act like a kuudere (Japanese for cool-type characters) but I have a great, great love for sad movies — no, tear-jerker movies!
It all started when I became a college student. I recalled watching Windstruck. Man, it was said as a tear-jerker movie by my friend. I had not cried in any movie then so I challenged myself to give it a try. *contains SPOILERS* I was on the brink of crying when the male lead died however on the scene where his soul was finally saying goodbye to his depressed girlfriend, I couldn’t effing stop iiiit! It felt really good crying. I couldn’t move on for days!
Then I started asking my friends any movie that would surely make me cry. They gave me a good list: My Sister’s Keeper, A Moment to Remember, I Give My First Love to You, A Millionnaire’s First Love, Koizora, to give a few. These are notable ones by the way.
I mostly cried on Korean movies. They are really good in film making. And I like watching alone. I haven’t watched with anybody yet. That is why.
There was a time when I couldn’t cry. Nothing tingled my heartstrings. I stopped watching them for a while. I was very depressed. I thought I cried too much in real life in a very limited time. I said to myself if I cried again for that reason, I would not be able to save myself. I sought for a horror movie (for the first time and would be the last one I swear) to make me scream the daylights out of me. I felt like my life was fucked up that time in every area. It was Apartment 1303. I was disappointed. I did not scream much. I wasted money. Man, tear-jerkers are waaay better.
And so to cure myself (for not crying), I watched a certified tear-jerker movie that would be my excuse for crying. It was A Moment to Remember. There. I had a gooood cry. I loved it. Man, I feel like a crybaby! Hahaha but I don’t care. I really hope only tear-jerker films and anime could make me cry. I don’t really like crying much in real life.
As for anime series and movies, AnoHana is the only anime, both series and movie, that made me cry sooo much for three episodes!
I recently watched Miracle in Cell No. 7. It was the only movie that made me cry from start to finish. *sobs*
I am so emo. Hahaha
