I was actually still in my studying mood - The dramas I'm currently watching were still on hold. I went through my list again and I found SPEC, I really didn't have any idea that it had a prequel, the prequel is actually a drama. Not until when I read some comments. In between, SPEC is a Japanses drama.
There should be a teaser somewhere, okay here it is:

My list never seems to get any smaller and I plan on reducing it drastically!!! If only i had the time. Enough with the whining!!!! SPEC is an awesome movie, and Erika Toda didn't disappoint me at all, she delivered!!!!
She plays the role of a detective here along with another actor who equally delivered. Since it has a prequel, a little recap was done. Through the recap I got to know that, Erika Toda's character is a spec holder. Question No 1 - Who are specholders?? Specholders are the people with super powers, who are said to have evolved during their life time to realise their spec (power). If you've watched heroes, just remove all the characters in heroes, insert these Japanese characters and some deadly specs. Does heroes have the detective part?? I really can't remember now, since I never really watched it season by season, I just watched some few eps here and there.
Okay...... Among these specholders, there are some that want to control the world with their specs. The specholders are also divided, there are some doing their own thing, some are working for the government while some have formed their own organisation. A war has now broken out. I skipped a very important detail; right from the beginning there were 3 prophecies, 2 have been fulfilled, but the thrid hasn't been fulfilled and nobody knows what the third prophesy actually holds. So, add up the prophesy issue, specholder and their spec and you have SPEC.
SPEC is a good supernatural, psychological, comedy (I did say underlying comedy) movie. The powers are awesomely shown, like there's this guy that can bring out spikes from his fingers...... that's just awesome, there's a 3D effect everytime some uses his/her spec.
Since dumbass me didn't watch the prequel, I'm going to get down to that. And there's a sequel (another movie) also. I'm going to watch everything and write a review!!!
