This movie is a love story about a man and a woman in their attempt to recover from the loss of a childhood friend. The story is based on a best-selling shoujo manga and was even selected by special invitation for the Tokyo International Movie Awards. There was a lot of hype surrounding the movie prior to its release, but once it hit the silver screen, it only grossed \86 million on its first 2 days.
"It might eventually gross about \400 million in the box office. The other romance movie which was shown on the same period, Juri Ueno's Hidamari no Kanojo, has already surpassed 1.6 billion. Similarly, this is based on a best-selling novel, and has become a hit, leaving Nagasawa's movie behind." - (sports paper journalist)
Why has the movie flopped? There are also a lot of people voicing out that they do not want to see Nagasawa in a pure love story.
Masami Nagasawa's movie in 2004 Sekai no chuushin de ai wo sakebu was a major hit, amassing a total of \8.5 billion in the box office. Nagasawa appeared in numerous dramas and movies afterwards, while still carrying that clean image that she had in SekaChu. However, she has not been blessed with a major hit since.
The movie that gave her a totally different image was Moteki (2011). She went all out in this movie, as she had a deep kiss as well as a sexy scene. This path was a success for her, as she has even commanded some attention with her leg exposures in this season's Toshi Densetsu no onna 2, however...
(Continued after the jump)
I really can't wipe off the image that she's Iseya's woman
She really gives off a dark vibe when you see her
- 映画俳優路線で失敗→セクシー路線で復活→映画俳優路線で失敗 ←今ここ→セクシー路線で復活Failed at being a movie actress
→ Came back in a sexy role
→ Failed at being a movie actress ←Currently here
→ Came back in a sexy role
Why not just adapt Toshidensetsu no onna into a movie?
Just show off your legs
- 恋愛だの純愛だのって映画はもう企画の段階で無理があるんじゃないか？長澤じゃない他の女優を使っても客など入らんだろI think these love and romance stories for movies won't become massive hits anymore.
No one watches those these days, even if someone other than Nagasawa is cast.
I don't think the problem here is Nagasawa vs. Ueno. It must be the difference between Okada and MatsuJun's abilities to attract an audience, right?
- 上野の映画は嵐が出てるから女が見に行った、長澤の方はリーガルハイクラッシャーのあいつが相手役だからダメだった差はここでしょUeno's movie had Arashi in it so women went and watched it. Nagasawa's movie has the Legal High crusher so it wasn't good.
Not just her legs, I hope she also shows off more boobies and her underarm
I think Toshi densetsu no onna was good
Masami Nagasawa was the mightiest in Moteki
I'll watch if they make a movie of Toshi Densetsu no Onna.
- コケてもコケなくても叩かれる長澤コケてもコケても叩かれない綾瀬なぜなのかNagasawa gets bashed whether she flops or not.
Ayase doesn't get bashed even if she flops and flops.
Why is that?
And this is how she is driven to a corner to make her take her clothes off
- 顔のタイプ的に、若かったから評価された顔だよな体型がいいからまだ見れてるけど、顔だけ見たら可愛いとは言えないよなBased on the type of her face, she was seen in a high regard because she was young.
She has a beautiful figure so people can still bear to watch her, but you really can't call her cute if you just look at her face.
- 岳やドラマの高校受験も良かったぞだから知名度と優れた容姿があるのだから企画や脚本が良ければハマる女優なんだよGaku and the drama Koukou Nyushi were good.
She's got the name value as well as good looks so she's an actress who can do good as long as the screenplay and the planning are all spot on.
- なんやかんや言っても美人だよな他の美人女優が霞むレベルWhatever anyone says, she's still a beauty.
It's on a level that will make the other beautiful actresses pale in comparison.
- 腹黒女をやれよ影で弱者を甚振るような似合ってないんだよ似合う役をしろShe should play the role of an evil woman.
Someone who harasses the weak behind the scenes.
Her current ones just don't suit her, she should be doing roles that fit her personality.
It's impossible for her to play pure romantic stories now
- 脱げば大人気間違いなしなんだがな女優としての覚悟が足りない５年後に脱いでも手遅れだぞBut there's no doubt that she'll get a hit as long as she takes her clothes off.
She lacks resolve as an actress.
It'll be too late even if she decides to go nude after 5 years.
- 夏帆を見習えよFollow Kaho's example

Her body's so hot, so doing pure love stories is like totally missing the point.
- 長澤まさみのヘアヌードだったら1億出すところが結構あるからそれ貰って脱ぎなさい。この映画よりよっぽっど話題になるよI think a lot of producers would pay Masami Nagasawa 100 million, or maybe more, to go nude. She should take the bait and go for it.
That'll be much more buzzworthy than a movie like this.
- 単純に演技力がないから何やっても同じエリカ様みたいに演技力あれば１リットルの涙みたいな清純派でもヘルタースケルターみたいな悪女でもヒットするTo put it simply, she doesn't have any acting skills.
If she had Erika-sama's acting skills, then she could have produced hits doing clean roles like in 1 Litre, or evil roles like Helter Skelter.
- 長澤ってコメディエンヌでしょその割にはスタイルルックスがいいからウケてるのにIsn't Nagasawa a comedienne?
And people like her because she's got the style and the looks.
- 最終的には脱がせたい方向これが長澤まさみに関する記事の90％を占めますEventually, people would want her to go nude.
This is 90% of all the Masami Nagasawa articles out there.
- 伊勢谷の前は岡沢だろもう脱ぐしかないわｗAnd her boyfriend before Iseya was Okazawa, right?
The only thing left for her to do is to take her clothes off w

Show yer legs!
- 伊勢谷と付き合うような女に、純愛モノやらせるのが無理すぎ脱いで汚れ役やるのが、お似合いなってきてるMaking a woman who's seeing Iseya do a pure love story is pushing it.
Making her do filthy roles and letting her take her clothes off suits her image more.
- 確かにｗｗｗ伊勢谷の顔浮かんで失笑モンだよなｗTrue www
I chuckle since I keep on imagining Iseya's face w
- 沢尻エリカと長澤まさみが２大若手トップ女優なんて言われてたのは２００７年ごろだっけ？もはや遠い昔のことのように感じるどっちも没落の仕方が著しいIt was in 2007 when Erika Sawajiri and Masami Nagasawa were called the top 2 young actresses, right?
That already feels like a distant past.
The way both have declined is befitting of them.
This is because Touhou has kept on treating her like a princess and left her to rot
Her legs are truly wonderful, but it seems like this is all she's got
