On the first day of high school, Hibino Tsubaki is immediately singled out for her plain, old fashioned appearance, even being teased by the popular boy who shares her name, Tsubaki Kyouta. To avoid being picked on, Tsubaki volunteers to cut Kyouta's hair if he'll leave her alone in return, only to peak his curiosity with the strange offer.
Tsubaki is a plain girl. She doesn't like to stand out and studies hard to make her mother happy. When she enters high school, she meets Tsubaki Kyouta. But he is a womanizer and hits it off by trying to flirt with her. He even takes her first kiss away! But soon he sees that Tsubaki isn't like the other girls who would do anything to get into bed with him and so he starts to make her meet him.
This is based on a manga and with that, it's your everyday shojo manga. The girl is plain and pure but still has some beauty hidden. The guy is a womanizer and still manages to stay with someone he loves, if he really tries to. And of course everything they do is because of some kind of trauma or because they aren't yet aware of their dreams and talents. It's classic, yet I didn't find it all too boring. Just that it was the same story again. Nothing new, but they still were cute. Of course it's for a younger audience who also just entered high school.
Since it was only a movie, I can give it 3* for being good but not too special. Watch it if you need a fluffy shojo love story.
