Just randomly picked this movie from my collections. They should put friendship, comedy and food as the genre too though. And yes, if you are searching for romance, this movie is not for you. Barely there romance, yes. I don't know about the manga tho, since it is a webtoon and I rarely read webtoon so I don't know the ending of this manga.

It focus on how the heroine is trying to catch the hero's attention. The movie is very comedic, I laugh often on her ways to attract the guy. It is more on how their friendship blooms, how the guy taught her on life through foods so yeah, their relationship is kind of sweet.

I watched Kawaguchi Haruna's previous drama and I must say she improved a lot in this movie. She delivered that desperate woman's act successfully. This is the first time I watch something with Hayashi Kento, he is good, an eye candy too.

The ending made you want to know more, kind of hoping for a continuation of this movie. This movie is short, about an hour and half only so if you want something light heartening you can try pick this movie. Recommended.

A romantic comedy kind of tragic ...
"Bittersweet" for those who like a good romance, is a good request. It has a comical, fluffy, dramatic and mature side, all very well distributed in its one hundred and twenty minutes.
Shôgo Kusano was very clever at giving an unusual angle perspective, obviously the script helped, since it was written by Yumio Kobayashi a great mangaka.
The manga itself is very good, the live left a little to be desired in the plot, adapted a lot, but not much was lost in the process.
The idea of "love" in Japan used to be defined by literature until the manga came and changed the scenery. Bittersweet is the proof, so watch.
