A male princess and a female prince fall in love. What could sound stranger?! Well, it is strange, but oh, so romantic!

After reading about 5 volumes of the manga, I was ecstatic when I found out they were making a live action movie. I already expected that it would be different from the manga, less hormonally driven if you get my drift, and I was right.

They made a couple of changes that I didn't care for, like having a character that moved away in the manga be a main character in the movie. This kept Akira from fulfilling what I considered an important role. There were a couple of other changes too, but nothing so dramatic that it kept me from really, really liking the finished product.

I LOVED Karam as Akira, although it shocked me to learn that he's Korean. That boy speaks Japanese like a pro. Ito Ono as Mizuki was a little bit harder for me to connect to. I don't know, I think she was too pretty, too obviously cute. It always felt to me like Mizuki was cutest to Akira in ways that not everyone else understood. He was the blatantly cute, everyone mistakes him for a girl, one. With Ito Ono, you know she's a girl; it's obvious.

Still, the movie is adorable, and bizarre, and gender-bending, so know what you're getting into. Loving the manga as much as I do, I'm thrilled that I liked the movie. Cheers!

First of all, what on the earth is happening that only "dailymotion" has this cute, entertaining and romantic movie available to watch? Come on! calling attention of uploader, please share/make more mirrors available to other website! spread the love!!!

It is my first time to watch a movie that both main leads are switch in gender, yes, it is gender bender movie with good plot.

The leads are beautiful, yep, even the male lead is "pretty", the reason why he is always mistaken for a "girl". It is not a surprise seeing a man fangirling over a man, or girls over a girl, it is a natural trend (I think that's a unique taste among Asian), and it is not weird. Because myself, I am also fangirling over a girl but I am a 100% straight, check out Touya Hibiki and you'll know what I mean.

The story is refreshing, romantic, funny and it has charms. It also show one or two character of Asian, being jealous and possesive (see how the admirer confronted Mizuki scene and Akira's admirers over Kiss issue).

In this movie, they also showed the modern fashions of Japanese people, those lolita trends, punk, pop culture and so on.

Overall, it is an entertaining movie.
