Kanna Seto lost her childhood friend Haruta in a car accident when she was a freshman in high school. Carrying the emotional pain from that incident throughout her life, Kanna is still wounded as an adult. Kanna then meets Roku Akazawa, who also carries a painful experience from his past. When Roku was an elementary school student, a girl who was with him got into an accident and died. Because of that incident, Roku carries a heavy sense of guilt. Roku then tries to make Kanna feel love again. Based on the manga series "Kiyoku Yawaku" by Ryo Ikuemi (published in Cookie magazine from January, 2004 - January 2010). The manga series consists of 10 different love stories and the movie "Kiyoku Yawaku" is based on the last episode "Kanna story". Edit Translation

This movie split into 3 sections. The first one is Kanna's past and tragedy, the second one is Roku's past and tragedy, and the last one is their present. In my opinion, the divided of the storytelling portion of Kanna and Roku's past is not very fair, where Kanna's past is told long enough and in detail, whereas Roku's past is only told as a flashback several times. In addition, the storyline is also a little slow but flows well. To sum it up, this movie is Sad yet funny. Tragic yet heart warming.

Nagasawa Masami and Okada Masaki both played great and got the chemistry.

Rewatch Value:
I think I will rewatch this movie again sometimes just to find if I miss some details before ^_^
