I didn't know this manga was made into a movie. I jus recently started reading the manga also so I decided to watch this.

It's cute. It's your typical popular boy, unpopular student romance. But I still liked it. I think this would've been better as a drama since everything seemed extremely fast. The whole teasing phase then relationship phase all seemed rushed which is uncommon for movies.

I think if you read more haven't read the manga you would probably like it more.

I loved the cast. Matsuzaka is some serious eye candy ~ all the characters were really likable but I feel like some of the supporting cast should've had a bigger role like in the manga. It's kind of like they were just there to be there. I liked the two main leads but I feel like their chemistry didn't develop well enough. They were cute together but I just didn't seem like they really liked each other, it was rather lacking.

The music was pretty good. The audio for the whole movie was a little weird so it was hard to hear the music clearly but they were enjoyable tunes.

First of all I need to point out that I have read the manga and know the details inside out as a fan.

Well, considering I approached this movie very accidentaly and since I really like the manga, I decided to give this a go.

Some parts very unexpected - in a bad and good ways. The story was slightly shifted from the original, but still kept the warmth of their meeting. read more But probably that shift is what made some gaping holes in the storyline, as it felt unfinished, missing something.

The acting was good, there was nothing to complain about just the script that didn't allow to go very deep into the characters to understand their actions (most of it was shuffled, muffled and skiped through very fast).

Overall, it is a good watch, yet I wouldn't rewatch it again as a manga fan.

    Years ago I had read parts of the manga and ended up dropping it. When I saw it was made into a movie, I was actually pleasantly surprised and decided to try it out. I actually think this was a very good movie! The actors did a great job and it was very enjoyable to watch! I thought the leads had great chemistry too! Overall, definitely try it!

    I strongly suggest you read the manga first to understand the characters then you watch the movie WITHOUT comparing it to the manga. This is the only way to enjoy it.

    I actually found this film very boring and cliche, and having read most of the manga it also felt kind of rushed... Maybe I'm just really sick of these kinds of standard shoujo stories...?

    The library kiss scene was a huge let down compared to the anime or manga. I would have loved to seen a drawn out j-drama of this it's a lot to try to throw into a film.
