SUCH A BEAUTIFUL MOVIE. I feel like crying even though it's not even a sad movie. It is so inspirational (motivated me to play piano) and just... BEAUTIFUL. (I just watched it now, so sorry if I sound too emotional).
Everything about it is just perfect, thus the 10/10. It doesn't have that hurried feeling that most j-movies have and the story is really amazing.
The only reason the re-watch value is so low is simply because I never like to rewatch anything... unless I forget about the plotline completely.

This movie is definitely a 2016 must-match, so go watch it NOW! XD

This movie is a really cute film. I enjoyed it a lot. It wasn't over dramatic and had a simple story to tell. The two leads bond over their desires to succeed in each of their own clubs: Ono in brass band and Daisuke in baseball. Both want to get to the finals, however each meets their own struggles along the way.
The actors were really good in this. They showed their character's passion and determination well. I also believe the supporting characters should be admired. This movie doesn't have complicated love triangles but rivals who look out for one another.
If you hate brass band music then this film isn't for you since it is pretty much the soundtrack.
The story wasn't rushed, but did leave some gaps I would have prefered filled. this if you are looking for a light story with minimal drama and lots to look forward to.

Refreshing story, but extremely boring. Okay, the plot was okay, with a girl who tries to play trumpet at her school club and a boy who wants to win the championship with the school baseball team. The film focused on their efforts to become the best in their field and to fulfil their dreams. With some ups and downs (which were the few only twists of the movie) they strive and overcome their difficulties. However, the movie never reaches that point where you can finally see that they had succeeded. Especially for the girl, we only see some scenes at the very end, when the movie has already finished. Good performances from the actors help a lot to make this movie better. However, the romance was extremely weak. So, 4 out of 10.

We have here the long awaited live action based on the manga "Aozora Yell" written by Kazune Kawahara.
"Yell for the Blue Sky" had no surprises, after all school dramas never really change, it's practically a cliché.
The "seishun eiga" or "juvenile film" is a Japanese genre that is not well-seen in the West, I say this, for those who do not appreciate culture, do not like drama, much less understand it, it's like talking to a rock , Then we have to ignore them. With few exceptions, these films take on a familiarity with the insular world of Japanese high school, or, occasionally, junior high school since in Japan the educational system is different.
Anyone who has seen or will see "Yell for the Blue Sky" will notice that he is not authentic, that is, culturally speaking, has a certain finger of Americanization, yet the genre "seishun eiga" offers a kind of window to the culture Japan's national, a pinch of what is the society and psyche of Japan, which other genres do not show, however internationally this is not popular, it is not well seen, one of the reasons is that, most Japanese survive high school and post High school, relatively few are those who join mafias such as Yakuza for example. Then you may be wondering, but what crazy talk is this, Yakuza, high school, what does this have to do with live action. For I say that there is everything, but the story is long, when you know a little more of Asian culture, like Japan, for example, we can find many obscurities and curiosities, which often go through subliminally by movies and dramas. Lay people may not realize it, but a movie or drama goes beyond a story ...
