Love Story From the Heart of Mayu Minami
For those of you who have seen a movie about the beautiful Mayu Minami, you’ll know that she is a young Japanese woman who goes missing for some months in the early 1990s. She was last seen with her boyfriend, Noboru Kawaguchi and they were driving to an engagement party in Hokkaido. Since then, the case has been very active.
There are reports on how Noboru was killed and how Mayu was abused by her husband and mother. She was then sold off to an agency where she would be forced to have sex with men and be sold again to another agency, until one day she was found alive in Hawaii, and has been reunited with her family.
What’s so fascinating about the story of Mayu Minami is the fact that it is not just about her missing days. It is also about her life after the event. When she returns to Japan, she becomes a teacher and a singer, in both Japan and Hawaii. The fact that she had such a wonderful childhood, but also has such a horrible and unfortunate upbringing, is what drives her towards happiness in her music career. It makes you see that the power is in the story, so that you can learn from it and be inspired to be like Mayu Minami.
The story starts in Japan where she meets a man called Noboru who was responsible for the death of her brother and the abuse that she suffered. He had promised him that he would become a good singer but when he failed, he left to look for another singer. Mayu is fascinated by this man, as she had also wanted to be a singer in the past, but could never get the right opportunity.
However, Noboru gives Mayu everything that she wants more, and when he dies, Mayu is heartbroken. She then takes the time to become a teacher, and a singer again, before she meets a man called Ryo Ogasawara, who turns out to be a criminal with a criminal past, and he was a friend of Noboru and his wife.
After all that, Mayu and Ryo decide to become friends, and she even begins to sing with him, but things aren’t always smooth sailing between them. As Ryo gets married to another woman and then leaves his wife for another woman, Mayu starts to feel hurt and betrayed.
