Perfect Blue (2002)
The Live Action Anime : Asaka Ai (Maeda Ayaka) is a budding starlette waiting for her big break to make it into the limelight. Under the dedicated tutelage of her manager Bando (Toda Masahiro) she shuffles from one photo shoot to the next, most often resulting in her image being used on various advertising posters. With the help of a catchy tune, Ai and Bando anticipate she will finally break out of merely poster appearances and into television commercials and from there, real stardom. The song is entitled If this is a dream wake me (Yume Nara Samete) and was written by Ai’s friend Hiromi just prior to Hiromi jumping headlong off a tall building.
