I watched this on the plane and surprisingly it was really good. The story follows closely to the manga but still it's a movie so they have to cut some scenes. Honestly for me, the highlight of the movie is definitely the chemistry between the lead. Suda Masaki did a very great job in portraying Haru you can't help but fall for him. It is a very good coming age movie focusing more on the friendship between the students. I really like how this is not your typical shojo movie where the guy is a jerk and the girl is naive, this one actually holds the message to just be yourself. For music they mostly use Nishino Kana's songs because if I'm not wrong it's kind of some collaboration project? Definitely a rewatch I can totally swoon over Haru forever and please stay until the credit end scene.

This is your typical fast paced, manga based romance movie.

I just watched this movie because I want something light, though I got what I want still the pacing in this story bothered me. I haven't read the manga and I have no idea how is the development of each character there, so this movie got me scratching my head because some scenes doesn't make sense like suddenly one character likes another character, not enough development to make that believable. I also have hard time connecting to these 2 main characters, not enough scenes for me to truly understand their actions, the pacing is just too fast. Also, some characters are wasted like minami hamabe's character, I thought she is part of the main cast, but felt like she's just a cute stray kitten who walked passed me, no idea what happen to her after. It's still a pretty good movie though, fun story, cute moments, lovable characters.

Technically, cinemagraphy is nice, Iove the camera work during those cute scenes. Music is also good, nice songs, though I felt it has too many songs, I think I heard 4 songs played throughout this movie. Acting is also good, you have both suda and tao as main lead and you can never go wrong with them, they also have great chemistry in this movie.

You might love this movie more than I do if you read the manga or if you're already familiar with the characters but it might be enough for you to love this if you are only after for a cute story, lovable characters, great kissess and good ending.

I was really happy to see how good this was. It's so much better than a lot of other movie adaptations of manga/anime out there. The acting is 100% what made this movie such a stand out. Suda Masaki absolutely nailed his role as Haru, I honestly can't imagine anyone else playing him now XD The story did feel a tad rushed at points, but that's bound to happen when you're trying to fit such a lengthy story into 100 minutes. I thought that overall they really managed to capture the feel of the story pretty well. This movie is honestly such a blast to watch, if you like this kind of story, I recommend that you give it a shot. ^^

A classic manga based live action that didn't manage to leave its mark. The story was interesting at first and the boy was an entertaining character, funny and adorable. His love story with the girl was a bit awkward at first, but it got better. Then there was the cliche ending that kind of ruined this one for me. And they tried to explore the girl's relationship with her friends but they decided not to half way through, which was a let down.
Other than that, the performances were good and the settings well managed. So, five out of ten.

I think the individuals that would enjoy this live-action are hardcore fans of the manga. Also, I have never read the manga so my understanding of the movie was based on what was presented within it. The problem for me was that it felt like parts of the storyline was missing, and there was a severe lack of character development due to the time constraints. That is a complete bummer because the actors and actress are amazing !

I don't recommend for people that are not familiar with the material, rather maybe read up on the manga or watch the anime before approaching this movie.
