The countenance of perfection!
Who cares about critics when a movie can represent someone's life on the big screen.
"Bokura in Gohan wa Ashita of Matteru" has a common but well written story with a perfect chronological narrative.
The genre bending comedy is also present, I loved it, it's not every day we see women taking initiative and picking on heavy and men doing light and domestic things, based on a novel read more by Maiko Seo, "Our Meal for Tomorrow" by Masahide Ichii is another unconventional romantic drama.
In the cast we have Ryota Hayama (Yuto Nakajima), high school student (Nakajima is a member of the popular boy boy Hey! Say! Jump), but is a lonely and sensitive when the movie begins. Then a girl from her class, Koharu Uemura (Yuko Araki), asks her to partner with her in a sack race ...
Working from the script itself, the film follows the reverse gender relationship - emotionally vulnerable face and mentally primordial girl with no ...
The story also features twists of often-seen plots, both medical and romantic, though their treatment of them is more original than normal.
"Bokura no Gohan wa Ashita de Matteru" is a love story any but for me it is one of the most impressive and cute I have ever seen. It's worth watching!

The plot isn't that refreshing esp for people who have watched movies like this. but imo, it's the plot pacing & characterization that made this movie admirable. it's somehow fast yet slow paced, for a moment you'd realized things are kinda escalating quickly, however, in the middle, the events would turn quite slow and you'd probably feel frustrated because of how things turned out lol. this made way to the good portrayal read more of their growing characterization and of the conflict in the plot (tho i may add, a cliche for dramaland but based on the their characteristics, it's bearable and you'd def understand them with it).

The writer/s also did a good job connecting the two characters. i like how they complement and sometimes contrasts each other. and also love the way the complexities of the relationship was shown from the beginning til the end. the lines are so good too; lost young people like me would relate 10/10 to both of them. A+ for the chemistry! not much skinskip or cheesy worthy scenes but us them being together made their chemistry oozed (hahaha).

Indeed, a heart warming watch. a perfect mix of not being too complicated, too sad, too happy, and too cliche *.* love this! just the right movie for my mood right now~

PS: if you totally didn't like this, i suggest to close the tab and get back on this when you're in the right mood for this movie. a second chance won't hurt!

    Idk maybe I am the only one, but i super disliked this movie.
    It went all about the same problems and the chemistry was lacking.
    It gave me friendship vibes and not real romance. No, it's not fault of actors but the script writer. She made the characters stiff and weird. Plus the ''plot-twist'' in the end was super lame, as there is no point. The only point i found was ''In sickness and health always together'' the end

      I think they acted their parts really well, they were both broken and dark people trying to stay together despite their personalities.

      I said that actors were good but the characters and plot nah-ah.
      Honestly, I don't understand why he even stayed with her? Cause we can see that through the years he becomes a bright person forgetting the past while she is a brat who just WON'T even listen to his problems! That was the most frustrating part. Like he was expressing his feelings and she literally slammed the door at his face or changed the topic. What kind of love is that, when u refuse to support your partner?

    I'm translating the movie to brazilian portuguese, and now I'm at the part where that kouhai girl appears. Oh how I hate those types of characters. She forces her way in with the"Im the one who loves you the most" cliche. She almost destroyed the movie to me. (I don't know if that was a spoiler, if someone thinks so, I'll edit this comment =D)
