It started out well and then it just went downhill. It was such a disappointment in the end.

The acting was really unnatural, especially the two male leads. When they cried and laughed it was so forced. Some scenes were also very fake. They were handsome and that's about it. You can't survive on eye candy alone. Even the side characters acted better.

The whole idea of the plot was good, when read more you read about it. But when you watch it you're like "what's happening?". They rush from one scene in the other. The story was really mixed up.

I hated the ending. The story ended when it just began. I want to complain more about the ending but I don't want to add any spoilers.

Totally wasted my time. It was my first boys love movie and I really regret watching it. I'm not recommending this to anyone, really.

Btw: I'm an artist and they really ridiculed a real artist :(.

Undoubtedly, Kisaragi and Mamiya are cute couple. The boys learnt something from each other. Even the beginning suggets, that the end will be tragic or dramatic.. but this is that charm. There aren't typical, schematic happy end. Mamiya... I didn't suppose that he will finish in this way..

The quotations about love, screening during the movie makes, that whole includes deeper meaning. Great film!

Both focus on boy x boy relationships and have a surprising ending. It has really cute relationships and similar enemies too. I guarantee you will like this! :)

    The ending just killed me. Why do most of the BL films have a tragic ending?

      It is the only way to send out the message that same sex relationships are EEEEVIL, while still making the shows, and also i think a large part is so they don't have to do sequels. what do you think? maybe?

      I've seen other Japanese BL stories and they all have a crappy ending. And, yes, that could be it.

      *cries* whjy does no one want to be labeled the BL king?? hahah ok I will cut them some slack, I would hate to have missed all the opther great shows saito did because they forced him into BL genre permanently. Doesn't that remind you of korean actors? I mean they are seriously and firmly cast in iron with their typecasting.

    I found this film a bit frustrating. It could have been 100% better with a bit more effort but it felt like a group project done at the last minute. Watch it for the eye candy of the two leads and Takumi Saito's amazing backside but don't expect much more.

    First and Last Yaoi Movie ever for me! I was curious and now my curiousity is fulfilled eternaly... Well it was not extremely bad but, watching guys love eachother with their gay love is just not my cup of tea.

    It's my first yaoi movie and it was surprising in many ways. I didn't expect such a tragedy, I thought it would be happier. I can see that we all agree that the ending was the worse ever. However I really liked the movie.

    Since I absolutely ADORE yaoi I was recommended to watch a live action one; this was definitively horrible to watch the ending made me go "what the fuck?" the movie was cheaply made the effects were shit just everything about this was wrong don't even bother watching this.

      The whole movie was a bit depressing, so I think the ending suited it well :).
