    Story - Since I was a fan of Bokura ga Ita anime, I expected so much in the movie... and they didn't disappoint me at all. I love the story! It really compromised the story in the anime...
    Cast - I gave perfect score, 'cos they really deserved it! for Yano and Takahashi's role, they did a great acting, they gave life to the role... I mean it's really like in the anime.
    Music - I love the OST. Great choice of songs. :)
    Rewatch Value - Definitely, I will watch it all over again.
    Overall - since it has 2 parts as of now this is the first part so I'm still looking forward to the second part. Totally inlove with the movie! Watch it

    1) The reason I watched this :

    I’ve seen the anime so I was excited to see the film adaptation.

    2) Storyline/Plot:

    *I already saw the anime so the story was known to me; I would say it was a fast forward script from the one in the anime. Writers cut the 26 episodes in a two hours film which made it lose so many cores compared to the original one.

    *Now the review for those who haven’t watched the anime or read the manga:

    Positive points:

    *The film was a light school romantic story wrapped up with some melodramatic feelings without falling into the tragedy level. It actually belongs to the “Slice of life” category.

    *Main genres:

    --->Romance: Like any slice of life melodramatic story,

    I've read the manga for this and watched the anime and I was excited to see the movie. Honestly, I was disappointed. I didn't really like it but it might be because I had really high expectations. I'm not sure why I didn't enjoy it, it was just something about it...

    Downloaded it from: http://heiseijump-world.blogspot.com/2012/11/jdrama-bokura-ga-ita-movie1-download.html<br /><br />Just thought I'd share the link! :D Apparently they got it before from dramacrazy. The video quality's not that bad :D<br /><br />The movie is so nice!! I watched the anime and I can say that they gave justice to it! ^^ I was thinking if I'm going to watch the second part cause it seems heart-tearing.. but I'll probably will in the end tho lol<br /><br /><br />*edit* <br />you can also watch it here: http://www.drama.net/bokura-ga-ita-zenpen-first-part-movie <br />I found it by accident while looking up for part 2 ^^
