[Oricon Poll] Taiyou no Uta 8th Saddest Film

Tuesday, January 8, 2008

Along with its recent survey about funny films, Oricon asked a thousand people which films made them cry the most.

The #1 answer was the international hit "Titanic." Two other American films made the top ten: "Armageddon" (#3) and "The Green Mile" (tied for #8).

"Crying Out Love, In the Center of the World" ranked 2nd, while "Ima, Ai ni Yukimasu" ranked 4th. "Koizora" and "Always: Sanchome no Yuhi" tied for 5th, ahead of "Grave of the Fireflies" (#7). Also on the list were "Taiyou no Uta" (#8) and "Nada Sousou" (#10).

Congratualations!! Hopefully this will encourage YUI to pursue an acting career, as long as it doesn't interfere with her singing career, of course.
