An adorably beautiful and comedic film, the protagonists are undoubtedly the differential of the film for this story, I loved the Iitoyo Marie as Nino Okamura as well as Taishi Nakagawa as Yuiji Kira both had a very good chemistry.
Based on Rin Mikimoto's series of manga "Kyo no Kira kun" (published September 13, 2011 through August 11, 2014 in the Japanese magazine shojo manga Bessatsu Friend) the film is not that very sticky or very cold thing, it is a very sweet romance between two teenager, the parrot has a representative role that I found a great balcony of the director. The soundtrack is very nice as is the cinematography that gives the most romantic air in this beautiful love story that is worth it.

I always hesitate to watch japanese teen rom-com since its market targeted for teenager and schooler.
I give it a try just because it in my gadget :D. Yeah, once more, I don't expect anything.

Plot: Not bad. This is a light hearted movie, less dramatic and story revolves around those two, Kira and Ninon. If you have ever watched I Give My First Love to You, you will notice the similar plot but with different ending. I Give My First Love to You is more intense though.

Acting: It surprised me that Marie Iitoyo was able to act! I mean she looks better than in Mars. She reminds me with Tabe Mikako's first romcom movie with Haruma Miura. cmiiw
Btw, Yuna Taira looks so cute.

Verdict: If you have time to watch and don't wanna think about anything while watching rom com movie, this is for you.
