Cast & Credits
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.
The actors are great, there were only few characters involved but acting wise, it was very well executed. I especially liked Iitoyo Marie's acting here.
For those who liked manga based school-romance drama this one will be perfect for you! Will definitely re-watch this again!
