The live-action film adaptation of Kaoru Tada's shōjo romantic comedy manga Itazura na Kiss is expanding from two films to three. The third film, Itazura na Kiss the Movie 3 ~Propose-Hen~ (Itazura Kiss the Movie 3: The Proposal Arc), will open next spring. The film project will depict plot details that original manga author Kaoru Tada wrote but never drew in manga form. The first film will open in Japan on November 25, after a special screening at the Tokyo International Film Festival.
Cast & Credits
I found myself connecting to Kotoko a bit more here, probably because there were more dramatic scenes. I also loved her kind-of friendship with Matsumoto in this one. That being said, I came for her romance with the handsome Irie--and in this movie, I felt nothing for them. Sure, I felt happy by the end of the movie, but I didn't feel the same level of elation as I did when I finished the drama.
The wedding scene was incredibly disappointing as well. It was one of my favorite parts in the drama, but it was just so quickly run through here. There wasn't any dreaminess or whimsy in it. Irie's "Talk" with Kinnosuke also left me feeling bothered and disappointed.
Anyway, if you're a huge fan of the drama and/or the anime, you might find yourself let down by the movie remakes. Maybe give it a shot if you're in a really good, lovesick mood.
