Halfway, for me was disappointing. Story had a lot of potential but they somehow made it very slow-paced, I dunno what happened. This was supposed to portray the shyness of a teenager in love?
Hiro finds out her new love Shu will be going away to college in Tokyo. She asks him not to go. And you don't need to know the rest because it's so boring. I really wouldn't recommend this movie...Unless you're bored to death so you wanna watch something.
I'm usually a fan of these simple Japanese films, where nothing extraordinary happens and it's all about the emotions but the lead female character was extremely annoying.
Cinematography was bad (the hand held camera), but I don't wanna waste my time on that. I wanna talk about cast.Cast was superb: Okada Masaki and Narimiya Hiroki kinda saved this movie. Their acting was great.
Music was okay too.
But, for me, there's no rewatch value. Yes, I wouldn't watch it again because I think it's a waste of time. There are a lot of better movies with a lot of emotions and good screenplay. About innocent love...Cheesy relationship. Let's go~

This story is about two high schoolers who started dating during their senior year. It's a decision making year for them as to what they want to do after school. If they choose to go to university, where shall they go? In this case, both of them decided where they want to go...it just turns out not to be the same place. Hiro, she is mad that Shu picked Wasada University which is in Tokyo and SO far away from where she wants to go. The relationship seems to go downhill from that...since she starts to bicker at him about changing his choice. And when he does, she doesn't know what to do next.

This is a typical situation most of us face during high school as a couple.

Anyway, I found the leading lady to be quite selfish and annoying..she just wasn't thinking about Shu to see if he was happy or not. Though she did realize it later. She was easily jealous and VERY clingy girlfriend. I felt so sorry for Shu when she treated him like that.

My main motivation for watching this movie was Narimiya Hiroki. I was disappointed since he had such a small role in it.

And I didn't like the camera work in the movie at all.
