Well not bad, live action. Tbh there are a lot of missing elements (characters & scenes etc) which is totally understandable since its a movie and they cant  really cram the whole manga in it right? So I guess they just picked the important scenes and somehow made it all connected. Which worked for me because I have read the manga.  But on an opposite perspective of a person who haven't seen the manga, I would say that its rushed. I'm not even sure how Mamura fell for Suzume or vice versa. There was also a lack of character depth and growth which is really a bummer.  

Character wise, Mei Nagano was spot on. She was just so refreshing to look at. Miura Shohei on the hand also did great. But sometimes I just want to comb his hair lol (I know, they're just referencing the manga but still...) and Alan Shirahama... well, I may be a little biased about him since I was really pegging for Kentaro, never-the-less,  he pulled it off somehow. The little smiles he makes  were really cute.

All in all, it was a great live action. Plus, it was quite faithful to the manga despite some deleted scenes and characters.
