I watched this film when I had nothing better to do without high expectations or anything that's why I think it was fair enough.
I am familiar with the lead actor; I've seen and liked him in several dramas before. However, I was introduced to the lead female through this drama but Mizobata Junpei was the reason of my liking.
The story of makeover is known but somehow, I felt it was read more more captivating here.
This is a highly recommandable films for rom-com fans.

Just a super cute, super silly movie that's just fun to watch. I have in fact watched this movie maybe four or five times and I laugh every time. If you want to watch something serious don't watch this, but if you have some extra time on your hands and you just wanna watch something light and adorable, then you should defiantly watch this.

in both movies, the lead male and female are shy, but in kimi ni todoke, the main leads are a bit or a lot more shy.
both female leads are not popular and socially awkward.
both male leads are cool, popular and kind.
both movies are about love stories!!!!

In both movies Ito Ono played the main role and in both of them she has to learn about love. Also in both of the movies they have a cool fashion style.

    I tried to watch, but honestly had to drop after 15 minutes . The acting for me didn´t seem real and there was no chemistry at all between the leads.

    It's very corny and sweet, and in this way quite funny too. Good watch if you enjoy corny comedy.

    I think the movie was ok, but it wasn't really my taste. I haven't read the manga yet, but I guess it's better than this one ^^,

    It was so corny and cheesy! If you don't mind it and comedy, then you should watch it.
    I personally didn't enjoy it at all, but it's personal preference haha.
