I had read the manga just a few months ago and I overall disliked the manga for its plain stupidity and cliche. It wasn't even any cute cliche which you would normally go along with- it was disturbingly cliche.

So, when I discovered that the manga was having a live adaptation, I had a slight expectation that the movie would hopefully come out better, since there are times an adaptation comes out better than what it originally is adapted from. However, the movie let me down too. Worse than the Manga.

First of all, the story pace felt rushed right at the beginning of the movie. The female main character was somewhat annoying and puzzled (The actress wasn't bad) and the male lead was just another typical cliche character. There were many unnecessary parts in the movie and some small things they added in the movie which were absent in the Manga felt useless too.

I know that comparing an adaptation with the original work isn't a cool thing to do since it's just an adaptation. But seeing how I disliked the Manga, it was somewhat obvious that I would dislike the movie adaptation too. And believe me, even if you watch it without reading the manga, you still won't like it.
The only tad-bit positive part I found in the movie was the Opening theme song, I guess. That wasn't bad.

All I have left to say is that- I don't recommend this movie to anyone. However, it is totally up to whether you should watch it or not since people have different tastes and rejecting to watch something just by a review is kinda wrong. You should check it out yourself to see whether it matches your taste or not. But to my assumption, it probably won't.

I hope this review was helpful to you :)

When people tend to think of shoujo, they often imagine stories of beautiful women and men falling desperately in love with one another through incredibly romantic circumstances. Some of the most famous series provide incredibly exciting narratives beyond romance, while others are interested in these specific emotions. So where do the Missions of Love fit? It provides a bizarre twist on the whole genre. The story, although appearing at certain moments to be cute, does not show, four episodes that could be best presented instead a narrative confusion, a story that can begin familiar before venturing into strange territory, from the general agreement.
