Based on the 2009 novel "Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai" by Yomi Hirasaka, the movie is about 2nd year high school student Kodaka Hasegawa (Koji Seto) who transferred to his new school about a month ago, but he still hasn't made any friends. Kodaka Hasegawa was born from a Japanese father and a British mother. Because of his appearance, people think Kodaka Hasegawa is a troubled kid.
One day, Kodaka Hasegawa sees classmate Yozora Mikazuki (Kie Kitano) pleasantly talking to herself. Kodaka Hasegawa talks with her about how to make friends. To make friends, Yozora Mikazuki decides to make the Neighbor's Club and Kodaka is forced to enroll in the club. Soon other students begin to enroll in the Neighbor's Club. --asianwiki
Cast & Credits
However I feel like this movie did start on that topic to then leave it halfway without giving a conclusion on that matter, which I found to be a pity.
Overall it's very confusing. There are a few pieces of story/life advice that are interesting but I really feel like they were mashed together to make one story and it appeared to be very confusing to me...
Apart from the "Sebangou No Nai Ace" song the music didn't really strike me...
As for the acting, it could have been better. I especially expected more from Seto Koji. But to be fair, this is a movie whose aim is probably to be funny and look somehow exaggerated ? So it's not really the kind of movie that will help showcase great acting skills.
Won't really recommend this to my friends. It wasn't boring but it wasn't great either. If you don't mind getting confused and thinking 'what the fuck am I watching' a few times during the 2h of this movie, then you might be able to finish it !
~~~~~That is all~~~~~~
