for once a live action shoujo adaptation that didn’t make me cringe and wanna rip my eyes out.

this is my favourite shoujo manga and lemme just say i started this movie with zero expectations cause i know how disappointing and horrendous manga to film adaptations can be and i didnt wanna ruin it for myself. but i was pleasantly surprised, really it was so much better than i thought it would be.

story: the way they managed to fit the story into a two hour film was surprisingly well done. although i was much disappointed that they excluded some scenes and i do feel certain scenes could’ve have been done MUCH better, it honestly wasn’t bad. as a fan of the manga, i’m very relieved and satisfied.

acting/characters: at first i was VERY sceptical about the cast. mainly because i was hung up on kentaro not being cast as mamura, but again, i was pleasantly surprised. miura shohei surprised me the most cause i’ve seen him in a girl and three sweethearts and he was pretty terrible in there lol but he did a really good job playing shishio.

nagano mei was my favourite though. i dont think they could have chosen a better actress to play suzume she was so perfect tbh. and although im a bit disappointed i feel like we didnt get enough of yuyuka’s character, yamamoto maika did an amazing job.

overall i think the movie was good. not The Best but i’m really glad one of my favourite mangas got this good an adaptation.
