Noboru (Takeuchi Taro) is a high school student who isn't popular at all. He looks up to senior student Miyazaki (Kudo Asuka) who is one of the most popular guys at school.
Miyazaki has two girlfriends: Momose (Hayami Akari) and Tetsuko (Ishibashi Anna). Momose and Tetsuko have totally different personalities. Momose is bright and Tetsuko is a popular student from a wealthy family. One day, Miyazaki is caught with Momose. To keep his relationship with Tetsuko, Miyazaki asks Noboru and Momose to pretend they are dating. They both agree due to their affections for Miyazaki. Noboru and Momose begin to act like a couple in front others and soon Noboru begins to develop feelings for Momose, who is still in love with Miyazaki.

This movie was slow,dragging at times and it seemed that the main characters didn't know what they were doing...at all.

The story could have offered so much more but it felt like it was cut off.
The ending left me not only unsatisfied but also a little bit confused.

The acting was good,especially the younger cast did quite a good job,but sadly-and I don't know if it's because of the lacking story line-I couldn't really connect with the characters well enough to get emotional about the things that happened to them.Thus I felt really unaffected by their whole story.
At times I was just very bored as there were a lot of things which were more than predictable and this movie had a lot of elements in it typical for Japanese melodramas.

I didn't really focus on the music while I was watching it.It seemed to fit the mood of the movie though,from what I can remember.

I wouldn't rewatch this.It's one of those movies you will easily forget because it just didn't affect you at all.

If you're bored/not in the mood for anything uplifting this movie will make you feel even more bored and may leave you feeling annoyed or even a little bit depressed.

It's not a movie I would recommend but at the same time it's not THAT awful.

I think it's up to you to decide whether you want to give this a try.But you'v been warned: this can be quite a waste of time.

I feel like a lot of people who watched this were expecting a lighthearted and romance filled movie about youth. But it's really the complete opposite. It's a fictitious story, but the characters are very real and full of emotions. The movie is actually pretty serious and it shows how much youth really feels. The movie is shot in crisp and clear white light, showing an almost void of life type feeling that contradicts the deep feelings of the characters. This is a wonderful movie and I felt like attached to the people in this when it was done.
