染谷 将太 (Sometani Shota)

All these Takeru-Kamiki appearances for Bakuman promotions make me all excited to watch the film. But more than just the “Amusing” reunion, I’m actually more thrilled to see the solid supporting cast especially Kenta Kiritani, Takayuki Yamada and Shota freakin’ Sometani.

I was sick last weekend so while my friends were out partying, I stayed at home with Shota Sometani’s long filmography keepin’ me company and I just marvel at his insane acting range.

I don’t know why it took me this long before I finally decided to watch Himizu. I guess I have to be in a certain “mood” to watch something as dark and dramatic.Then I was just in awe the entire time for I haven’t seen such a compelling acting pair for a while. Shota Sometani and Fumi Nikaido deserve their Venice Film Festival Marcello Mastroianni Awards. They definitely go to my all-time favorite pairs which include Takayuki Yamada/Haruka Ayase in Byakuyaku and Eita/Mitsushima Hikari in Soredemo Ikite Yuku.

It’s hard to resist jumping into the whole Someya bandwagon after watching Himizu. I’ve already seen some of his movies before and I totally recognize his strong presence on screen; I just never gave him as much attention as I’ve given Kamiki. And just as I’ve mentioned in my Kamisama no Iutoori review, if there are actors in the same age range who could rival each other’s abilities then it’s Shota Sometani and Kamiki Ryunosuke. I’m still praying for dramagods to grant my wish for this acting showdown.

I guess I’ll just settle for this adorable picture for now…
