I watched the movie yesterday and I am so thoroughly disappointed!

The trailer and even the tags on this page advertise it as ‘a suspenseful mystery that seems kind of messed up’. The trailer makes it look like a mysterious suspense movie, maybe even a little scary, and maybe even some crazy person among them might try and kill them all. But... It’s not. It’s really not.

This is more like a One Litre of Tears type story: a slow, character discussion story where the ask do people deserve to die? Should we and can we choose when to die? Should we be allowed to commit suicide? It’s more THAT. A slow, questioning life and death story.

It’s advertised completely wrong.

There’s no mystery at all about the dead boy in terms of there’s nothing that makes you want to know about him; the whole story is predictable, and, as said; there’s nothing psychological or suspenseful about it. AT ALL.

It’s utterly boring. I almost walked out of the theatre because this is not what I was expecting nor what I wanted nor what was advertised!

If this had been properly advertised I probably would’ve enjoyed it! So I say to you:
Please watch this expecting something like a slow, questioning life and death movie because that’s exactly what you get.

[WARNING: the rating and review I give have the possibility to be subjective due to my preference for the genres, scenes or casts]

This movie feed up my psychologist soul. Suicide is always been my biggest question, why some people--or in many case teenager--have a suicidal thought? I mean, if you die, you can't change anything anymore, right? Your mark stuck at that moment, but if you live, you can change, upgrade and proof yourself. There's so much reasons to ended your life, but living takes courage and so much more reasons to still live. I hope a lot of children out there, who ever think to take their life, find a reason to keep living. We'll die in the end, so why rushing now?

Back to the movie. The story idea is great in my opinion, the problem some clear, some shady, some complicated and some seems there's even not a problem. The problem solving somehow feels not a problem solving, but the process of the teens thought to the problem solving is what's matter. The pace of telling is good, not too fast and not too slow, although there are some details that might be better told a little more.

The acting of the casts are very good. They play so naturally and ensoul their roles. However, in my opinion the outstanding actors are Mackenyu and Kitamura Takumi. As for the female cast, Sugisaki Hana plays really well.
