kyou, koi wo hajimemasu
2010 video jp
same setting


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.

Both are high school romances based on a manga series. The main boy is self assured and popular, while the main girl works to become more confident.

Was my first time watching something with Matsuzaka Tori and I just loved it. I remember I loved the manga too, but tbh I forgot many stuffs about the it, and I am not really sure if this movie was or not a faithful work to the original story, but it was enjoyable and cute.

REALLY? A DRAMA? This manga was so bad and cliché and ugh... I can't believe it got a Drama, and with Takei Emi?? even more annoying, excuse me while I puke.

Omg... that was terrible!!! Nothing is like in the manga -.- I feel really angry, the guilty is not about the actors anyways, I think that they are good but... that was the worse live action that I saw ever!!

I didn't watch the anime nor read the manga.
the movie felt incomplete yet complete. I'm sensing the prod skipped some scenes from the manga.

I haven't read the manga or neither have I watched the anime version...but I still like this movie. First time in ages I have watched Jmovie in one go and without pausing. It's either because this movie was good or I was just carving for simple love story and this move delivered it to me lol
