Title: Kaibutsu-kun The Movie
Relese date: November 26, 2011
Cast: Ohno Satoshi, Yashima Norito, Ueshima Ryuhei, Choi Hong Man a.m.o
Right at his coronation, the prince Kaibutsu (Ohno Satoshi) is met by objection from his kingdom due to his selfishness. When his father demands from Kaibutsu’s three guardians/advisers, Dracula (Yashima Norito), Wolfman (Ueshima Ryuhei) and Franken (Choi Hong Man), to bring him back and apologize or they are stripped from their positions, they run after him, but missing the human world and his friends, and refusing to do things he dislikes, Kaibutsu decides to leave the monster world, and the three ends up going with him. While flying on a magic dragon, they miss a tornado, and end up in India, where the people confuse him with a legendary warrior. Liking the royal treatment, Kaibutsu decides to stay, but still refuses to do things for the people. That is until they tell him that they’ll make the world’s best curry, if he saves the kidnapped princess…
I love Kaibutsu-kun: I loved the anime, the manga and I love the live action! I enjoyed the drama, special and now the movie is as good! I can’t really hate it though, and that has probably to with my childhood, and my love for the original Kaibutsu-kun, so yes I am very biased. It is such a family movie, and it is very entertaining.
That said, it really is a kids movie, and it doesn’t make you all into it. The character is very much the same, as he always was never really changing and Demokin and Demorina (the bad guys) are still trying to use humans for each other resurrection, so things don’t really change. LOL.
☆☆☆½ / 3½ out of 5 stars
