User Reviews: Japanese dramas/movies are usually adopted from manga (comic novel) thus have some unique taste. This movie is refreshingly unique. Yet, it’s not cliche nor has that comic vibe like the other Japanese movies.
But It’s a story mostly about friendship. So might get disappointed if you are looking for teen romance. I love everything about this movie. It’s a 10 on 10 for me.
