A male princess and a female prince fall in love. What could sound stranger?! Well, it is strange, but oh, so romantic!

After reading about 5 volumes of the manga, I was ecstatic when I found out they were making a live action movie. I already expected that it would be different from the manga, less hormonally driven if you get my drift, and I was right.

They made a couple of read more changes that I didn't care for, like having a character that moved away in the manga be a main character in the movie. This kept Akira from fulfilling what I considered an important role. There were a couple of other changes too, but nothing so dramatic that it kept me from really, really liking the finished product.

I LOVED Karam as Akira, although it shocked me to learn that he's Korean. That boy speaks Japanese like a pro. Ito Ono as Mizuki was a little bit harder for me to connect to. I don't know, I think she was too pretty, too obviously cute. It always felt to me like Mizuki was cutest to Akira in ways that not everyone else understood. He was the blatantly cute, everyone mistakes him for a girl, one. With Ito Ono, you know she's a girl; it's obvious.

Still, the movie is adorable, and bizarre, and gender-bending, so know what you're getting into. Loving the manga as much as I do, I'm thrilled that I liked the movie. Cheers!

First of all, what on the earth is happening that only "dailymotion" has this cute, entertaining and romantic movie available to watch? Come on! calling attention of uploader, please share/make more mirrors available to other website! spread the love!!!

It is my first time to watch a movie that both main leads are switch in gender, yes, it is gender bender movie with good plot.

The leads are beautiful, yep, even the read more male lead is "pretty", the reason why he is always mistaken for a "girl". It is not a surprise seeing a man fangirling over a man, or girls over a girl, it is a natural trend (I think that's a unique taste among Asian), and it is not weird. Because myself, I am also fangirling over a girl but I am a 100% straight, check out Touya Hibiki and you'll know what I mean.

The story is refreshing, romantic, funny and it has charms. It also show one or two character of Asian, being jealous and possesive (see how the admirer confronted Mizuki scene and Akira's admirers over Kiss issue).

In this movie, they also showed the modern fashions of Japanese people, those lolita trends, punk, pop culture and so on.

Overall, it is an entertaining movie.

In both movies Ito Ono played the main role and in both of them she has to learn about love. Also in both of the movies they have a cool fashion style.

Music, romance, very sweet characters. Kanojo wa Uso Wo Aishisugiteru is a bit more mature and slightly melodramatic (but only very slightly). Make sure you watch until after the credits ;) while Ai Ore! Is more superficial and scripted to fit the label 'cute' (as with many manga adaptations)

    Watched it as I had it downloaded and I wanted to kill some time before going to sleep.
    For that purpose it was okay. Watchable and had some good comedy elements in it.
    Typical Japanese styled movie and not that mind-blowing acting...
    Karam and Takuya were cute :'Dd

    she was not so prince like nor was he princess like at all. sometimes music and love can work out in a movie but in this case it didn't.. this movie was boring and akira is creepy but the ending bit was the best part, the song turned out pretty good. the other problem is the characters revolving around mizuki and akari, we don't know shit about them and kaoru seemed to be crushing on mizuki.

    I'm a fan of Mayu Shinjo's manga,,,so i love this one too haha. I know it's kinda weird this kind genre to be made into live action, but actually in manga there are a lot of emotion so i can feel those emotion too in this movie.

    I thought I was getting too old for romcom drama adaptations. But I really do like Mayu Shinjo and this one was not one of these exaggerated School / gender bender genres. Still a bit over the top but fair. A bit boring as well (story wise, nothing much happens. No suspense... no drama...) but I thought it was quite cute. I didn't skip through the first half (which I think was the better half), then it became a bit stereotypical and too unrealistically cheezy. Akira's role got marginalised in the second half, aswell I didn't like that much. And it is all very superficial, we know practically nothing about Akira or any of the characters. That's a shame. And please don't get mislead, Akira does not run around in a dress all the time. Which I am quite thankful for, because the Gothic lolita style everone is wearing is a bit much for anything outside the pages of a manga.

    I am forever half-way through this movie. xD Maybe one day I'll be able to find subs and move it from the "On-Hold" to the "Completed" list... maybe one day...

    This is so frustrating, knowing subs are out there on dailymotion, but not being able to get them to work. I tried everything, different browsers, different computers, and still nothing. If anyone finds subs elsewhere, please let me know!

      I didn't find him feminine enough, sorry (>.<) I could never mistake this guy as a girl. That's my personal opinion tho.

    I seriously want to watch this movie, but the subs on dailymotion won't work at all and then it's subbed on youtube but on French, and I don't know French so it's kinda hard (I find it easier to listen to Japanese than understand French subs >.<) does anybody know why won't the subs work?

      I don't know that is the strangest part that I ever knew. I went oh well and just listened to the Japanese. I wonder why there's not a lot of this adorable movie out there with subs actually work
