An adorably beautiful and comedic film, the protagonists are undoubtedly the differential of the film for this story, I loved the Iitoyo Marie as Nino Okamura as well as Taishi Nakagawa as Yuiji Kira both had a very good chemistry.
Based on Rin Mikimoto's series of manga "Kyo no Kira kun" (published September 13, 2011 through August 11, 2014 in the Japanese magazine shojo manga Bessatsu Friend) the film is not that read more very sticky or very cold thing, it is a very sweet romance between two teenager, the parrot has a representative role that I found a great balcony of the director. The soundtrack is very nice as is the cinematography that gives the most romantic air in this beautiful love story that is worth it.

I always hesitate to watch japanese teen rom-com since its market targeted for teenager and schooler.
I give it a try just because it in my gadget :D. Yeah, once more, I don't expect anything.

Plot: Not bad. This is a light hearted movie, less dramatic and story revolves around those two, Kira and Ninon. If you have ever watched I Give My First Love to You, you will notice the similar read more plot but with different ending. I Give My First Love to You is more intense though.

Acting: It surprised me that Marie Iitoyo was able to act! I mean she looks better than in Mars. She reminds me with Tabe Mikako's first romcom movie with Haruma Miura. cmiiw
Btw, Yuna Taira looks so cute.

Verdict: If you have time to watch and don't wanna think about anything while watching rom com movie, this is for you.

    I plan on watching soon. I just want to know if it has a sad ending seeing how it is dealing with illness.

    Total waste of time. I maybe feel like this since the theme of a lethal illness is so cliche but I also didn't like the actress and her character who was just plain dumb. I hate dumb female protagonists sooo...

    So much chemistry (and kisses)!!!! One of the things that bothers me the most on japanese dramas/movies is that I can't seem to connect with the characters, but I didn't have the same problem with this movie. A really simple, even cliche story, but wonderfully executed and well-acted!

    I'd really like to watch this, but the "terminally ill" in the synopsis scares me. Does it have a sad/tragic ending? (Please don't forget to hide behind a "Spoiler"!)

    During the ending credits, those two looked 100% like an actual real-life couple. A very cute movie, definitely left me smiling.
