Cast & Credits
Although i loved this story as it shows the hardships of girls working in hostess or kyabukura bars, i felt the story could have gone a lot more further if given the chance.
It follows the life of a girl who needs to find a place to stay and earn some money and how she discovers her dreams and follows them.
I recommend this drama to people who have a love for the Japanese Gyaru fashion and love a good story about girls rising up and following dreams.
As i said before i would have loved this story to go further and show her after she makes it big, and also go more in detail to other characters who appear in the movie.
Overall i enjoyed this movie and would watch it again purely to be caught up in the glamorous lives within the movie.
I liked how kind Haruka always was in the face of very mean people and how she always chose to focus on pushing through her struggles and finding a way to be successful rather then get revenge. She never mistreated others but always stood up for herself, and she knew what she wanted in life and was willing to work to get it. (Her pet turtle was also a cute added element to the story.) She may not have had a lot of book smarts, but she quickly demonstrated her street smarts time and time again.
It was a cute movie with a likable main character, and I enjoyed watching it.
