    I never heard of this before. I never read the manga too so I really don't know about the story.

    I love the story, it's really cute but kinda dramatic. I enjoyed light love story and this definitely my type of favorite

    My ratings are based on the movie alone.

    I am an avid fan of Kanan Minami sensei books and out of all her series, kyou koi was my favorite followed by honey x honey drops.

  • Awww these movies are just sooo cute and similar. You know an introvert, which is the female lead in both movies fall for the cool popular guy. And they both just make you go awwwwwwwwww. And also it's quite sad if you are not in a relationship because it makes you want a boyfriend/girlfriend really badly :/

  • Both female lead is old fashioned and they male lead helps them become pretty. Both movies have quite many in common. The two movies are very cute and fun to watch! Kyou, Koi wo Hajimemasu gives a realistic feel, while High School Debut gives an anime feel.
