Risa Koizumi and Atsushi Ootani were both rejected in the past because of their height. Ootani, too short and Risa, too tall. They both promised to never fall in love, just if they find a good match in height. Risa and Ootani, who soon menage to learn in the same class, become the "All Hanshin Kyojin" of their school. They are named after a popular comedy duo that has a similar height difference. But even though they have this difference, they become good friends and come to know each other fast because of their friendly personality. And fast enough, the two become too close.
I enjoyed watching this very much! It's just so cute and charming!
I read the manga before watching this so I dove into the film with very high expectations and I have to say it was slightly disappointing. It didn't pan out the way I wanted it to - following along with the manga - but it's still a fun film to watch.
I thought Ema Fujisawa and Teppei Koike played their roles well and were a very cute pairing. I am very surprised that Ema Fujisawa hasn't acted in many films because I think she portrayed Risa very well.
In relation to the whole manga to live action transfer I thought they did the best they could. The acting wasn't over exaggerated at all since manga is very exaggerated in itself.
I like watching this film just because of how cute it is. It makes me laugh and has really funny moments as well. This is a something you could watch with your girlfriends/gal pals or even your sibling(s).
