Tenmaku Cinema Chapter 5 Recap and Spoilers

The chapter keeps the plot progression brief but is loaded with lessons about filmmaking, even for an incredibly talented duo like Hajime and Tenmaku. Location scouting is simply more than finding the perfect place to shoot, as it can host valuable insert shots, creating the glue that can hold a scene transition together.

This helps as Hajime transitions from city scenery to the beach with Kurakui, and while there’s progress being made in their location scouting, the next portion requires more commitment from the actor. Hajime quickly realizes, as typical in coming-of-age stories, that he’s doing all this with a cute girl, and begins to notice these qualities about her all too soon, especially in a final shot that comes off more fanservice than in service of the plot.

Overall, the chapter was interesting, but the final moments were strange. Kurakui is intensely in tune with her character, Nagisa, but getting closer to her by “going into battle” clad in a skimpy bikini feels more like a Shonen trope than a genuinely compelling development. However, it’ll be interesting to see how this ties into their film project, and how they connect as students and collaborators.

This latest release was viewed on the Shonen Jump app on my Android mobile device (Google Pixel 7 Pro) as well as its site through the Google Chrome browser. All information is confirmed via official Shueisha sources.
