It was a movie where I liked some elements very much and some not so much.
The storyline is interesting, but the plot was pretty cliched and also very rushed.
The characters are very likeable and just as we start to understand them, they do/say something that makes it feel like we missed something in between. So, it wasn't very believable.

What I appreciated about it was the feel of the movie. read more Even being about such a different aspect as love between boys, it didn't feel strange at all. Rather it showed a very natural and beautiful relationship.

The cast was very good. The boys were perfect for the roles they played.

In all, here's a movie with lot of potential, but it falls short of being great.

It was something new and out of the oridinary for me to watch and i loved it it was very touching and natural feeling. The realationship was given a very pure feel and the story was light and simple but kept my attention. i do recommend this for other to watch! Throught the entier time i didnt feel awkward it showed a diffrent perspective than the types of dramas and movies i usually watch

Make a Recommendation Recommendations

Takumi-kun Series (1-5) are BL movies with a comparable mood to them. Manly because they have drama, but are mostly positive and sweet. (With the exception of some tragedy in the 2nd Movie, if I remember right). Both have the school setting. Even though you will have to be prepared. Seven Days has the better acting. However, relationship wise the Takumi-kun Series has more depth and action going on.

    This drama is actually sub par but since I am a BL fan I want to watch the entire series. Yanagishita and Kato were good looking but they do not have the chemistry that can make everyone go kyyyaa!! Made to watch by BL fans, and those who have time to kill or does not want to watch something stressful.

    I laughed so hard watching this movie tbh. I thought this was a joke at first but no the movie is serious. There were a lot of aspects of it that were bad, like bad writing or bad camera work. It also had some really cringey and awkward moments and was waaay too dramatic some times (like that one crazy - which was fucking hilarious to watch) so I don't hate this movie. It was pretty cute at the end and I did end up crying with Takumi's last words because it was so big and so healthy and I liked that part. Moving on from that and becoming a person again, I loved that. Especially since it's something not everyone can do.

      The other ones are better, but don't expect any deep stuff; it's mainly a fanservice movie for people who like BL. While this one is so bad it's funny, I did not find myself laughing at the sequels. So I'd say if you like yaoi give it a try :p

    This movie reminds me of Hana Kimi. Not the cast/plot but the general feel of them Movie - not sure why.

    Despite the negative comments below, I personally really enjoyed this movie and I liked how it was filmed & found the storyline easy to follow - after I realised that Daisuke Nozaki (Tetsuya Makita) & Saki Glichi (Kato Keisuke) where two different people .... ops.

    I don't really know what to say about this movie. It's terrible. I was laughing out loud at some scenes that weren't meant to be funny. In fact, at the beginning, i wasn't sure if they were supposed to be funny or not, i seriously couldn't tell. I figured out that no, they were just badly acted and written... But i'm oddly curious to watch the next one and see if it's just as bad. The previous comments suggests it's a bit better...

      yeah, it was fine, but it was hard to believe in those feelings etc... story was better but acting and that cute feeling just makes you want to laugh when you shouldn't...

      OMG I literally left a comment saying the same thing. At the beginning I was like "This can't be serious" and I just died laughing at so many parts, I would watch those parts again just because they were that funny.

    Acting: Good
    Plot: Good
    Writing and Shooting: Bad

    Seriously this movie had so much to give with the given cast but was let down by the rubbish writing which jumped so much it was hard to follow what was going on especially when it involved any of the supporting cast. However I do give credit to them and the leading men, as they where wonderful with the script given.
