The story is set in a fictional Japan where people are discriminated according to their birthplace and residence. Saitama Prefecture is particularly criticized by the people in Tokyo. One day, a mysterious male student named Rei Asami transfers to Hakuhoudou Academy, a prestigious high school in Tokyo, from America. Momomi Hakuhoudou, the male president of the school's student council and the grandson of the director of the school, is gradually attracted by him. However, Rei's secret origin that he was born in Saitama is accidentally revealed. He returns to Saitama to join resistance movement to eliminate discrimination against Saitama citizens. When Momomi learns that a powerful politician tries to destroy Rei's resistance group, he decides to go to Saitama to inform Rei of the danger. Edit Translation
Cast & Credits
Over the top camp (cheese, what ever you want to call it) story involving love for your crappy home town even though everyone else thinks that place is the pits. Great Cast, great shout out to huge names in Japanese entertainment From Chiba and Saitama. I love a movie that doesn't take itself seriously and is made out of love and fun.
Make sure to watch then end credits and song lyrics.
This review will self destruct in 5 seconds. ; )
First of all, this movie is not for everyone. It must not be taken seriously and there is no real meaning behind it. However, the pace of the story was pretty good, with the adventure having a nice start and a dynamic ending. The production was really good too, with the costumes being top notch, as well as the settings. It is slightly bothered me that the grandson was played by an actress and not an actor, even though she did a great job with her character.
So, overall, six out of ten.
