Boku No Kanojo Wa Saibogu/ Cyborg She

Synopsis: a.k.a My Girlfriend, the Cyborg

Genre: Drama, Sci-Fi, Comedy

Jiro (Keisuke Koide) is a lonesome college student. He's spending his 20th birthday alone, when suddenly, a beautiful girl (Haruka Ayase) appears and takes a liking to him. The few hours that he spends with her are the most incredible moments of his life and Jiro is lovestruck. But his happiness does not last long since she disappears from his life at the end of this magical night. A year later on his 21st birthday, Jiro runs into her again. She looks the same, but is somewhat different. He soon discovers she is a cyborg from the future, sent back on an important mission.

This movie was made by My Sassy Girl's director Kwak Jae Young. It doesn't run with the whole Windstruck and My Sassy Girl continuation but the whole heroine-wimpy man thing that people seem to love. So, it's a Japanese cast under a Korean helm, which is awesome! I think Haruka Ayase was pretty good in this one. It may be a Sci-Fi movie, but it's good, and don't expect any water works, not unless you're a real softy... Enjoy!
