All these vignettes occur on April Fool’s Day, but are they real or merely pranks of the day? Extremely shy Ayumi Nitta is a hospital janitor who has a one-night stand with surgeon and confirmed womanizer Wataru Makino, only to end up pregnant. When she shares the news with Wataru, he passes it off as some sort of really bad April Fool’s joke. Wataru takes his date Reiko out for dinner, only to find Ayumi at the same restaurant and ready to confront him. A student thinks he’s an alien after reading his messages on the internet; a police detective suspects a senior lady of running a bogus shaman service; a middle-aged couple pretend to be royals to fulfil the wife's dying wish; a 'kidnapped' school student with her family; and friends stay together, despite their different sexualities.

I went into this after reading the synopsis thinking the story to be linear, but it's focused on many people, and the way it interwebs all the stories together is really neat. I think the only couple I didn't really connect to was the two gay guys, as I felt their story was given minimal screen time. However, all the other stories, especially that of the older couple was so heart warming and sad at the same time. I also really liked the little girls story arch as well.

Overall the movie was really interesting. I loved the different stories and all the characters. I did not expect the film to play out as it did but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

I wanted to watch something with Erika Toda and this is what I saw.

I thought it’s just something silly, light and I would just laugh through it. Well I did laugh here and there. But, God, I never though I’d be crying for this movie. I though wrong, so wrong.

I liked the part of the stubborn daughter and gangster father, but my favorite was the story of the old couple. Dang, I cannot stop crying when I knew their story. I was so touched!
