Takashi Hayama is a third year high school student who falls in love with Azusa Oribe at first sight. They begin to date and, one day, Azusa tells Takashi "people who meet me, forget about me several hours later." Takashi doesn't believe Azusa, but by chance he realizes that it was true. To prevent that, Takashi begins to leave a note for himself and Azusa.

First, if you are expecting a happy ending, then this movie is not for you.

This movie is on a different level. We are so much used to movies or dramas where the MC suffers from memory lost or amnesia, but this one is the other way around. The people around Azusa forgets about her in a couple or hours or just the next day. But Takashi was different, he was able to remember her, until...
(Well I will just let you watch to find out what really happened)

Like I said, it was very different, I don't know if I have encountered or watched a live action drama or movie like this yet. If I may compare it for similar situations, I can say it's from Boku Dake ga Inai Machi. But in Boku Dake, people only forgot about him as a result or consequences for his attempt to change his past. But here, people just forgets her after a day of meeting her, even her family.
I think it is really hard to be in that situation. It is a different story if you're the one who forgets, but how about if you are the one being forgotten? Even your own parents? And even if you try to live on your own and be independent and find a job, how? People might just even forget hiring you.

I still have a lot of questions in my mind right now, asking myself how will I able to surpass that? The last scene gave me a lot of emotions, I can't explain which of this emotions I should really feel. I was on tears, not much, but my heart is crying, for Takashi & Azusa. Like why? They were so sweet in the videos Takashi watched in his laptop. I want to say a lot of that scene, but it would have been spoiler.

The actors did well in their portrayal of the characters, abd the plot is somewhat different, or at least the situation for the lead characters to me, but the flow of the story was just simple and light. It is watchable, at least good enough if you're not the type to always go for happy-ending.

It sounds like that some sort of fantasy element is involved but it is absolutely not. The movie does not give an explanation at all, other than to compare it to people forgetting their classmates a long time ago. This major point is not reached until one third of the movie. Nothing special happens until we reach two thirds of the movie. I like the climax since it makes full use of the being-forgotten characteristic. I don’t like movies that have no resolution at the end though. The whole thing seems contrived to serve a tear jerking moment, so I’m not impressed. A subplot involving the girl’s father is also incomplete.

Excellent film and it is incredibly good. Love the cast and the directing.
