So far, this is one of the best movie adaptation of a manga/anime that I've watched. I'm really glad that they gave justice to the manga and anime.

The story goes just as how the anime and manga go, only having a bit of change by the ending. Just a bit. But, yes, it's just as good as to what it adapted from. The movie managed to show the innocence and simplicity of the story. I think this is really what makes it look like an elegant one to me.
I'm really hands down to the cast that they chose. Really. Mikako Tabe and Haruma Miura are really suited for their roles. They did an awesome job portraying Sawako and Kazehaya. The actresses who acted as
Chizuru and Ayane are great, too! I have to admit that the similarities in the appearances of the casts with the characters of the manga is what really made me amazed in it. But, yes, all portrayed their characters very well.
I really loved the music.
When reminiscing the high school days or innocence of youth or the hopes in love, this is good to re-watch.
This movie didn't disappoint me and I'm sure glad of that, for I am a fan of both the manga and anime, if it isn't obvious enough. Those who are looking for a simple but good movie to watch, this should be added to your list. However, if you're tired of high school romance, skip this one. Anyway, for me, this is worth watching.
