Yamapi is my weakness...which explains why I went for this movie even though I'm not really a fan of the teacher-student romance genre. Something about the way this played out though was just so...right. I loved the characters and how their relationship developed. There was a scene there that definitely made my heart race (so well done)! But the last half was lacking and predictable...not nearly as good. So the movie just kind of went out with a...fizzle. Oh well, worth a watch!

Her acting was so stiff! I know her character is supposed to be emotionless but it was almost painful to watch. His role wasn't much better either. Overall, the plot seemed rushed and just ridiculous.
They jump from a first awkward kiss to a "let's get married" and then promising eternal love? *rolls eyes*

I loved it so much, especially the chemestry between Kururugi and Sensei <3 they were soo cute and innocent and very very natural
But the most incredible and suuuuuuuuuuuuuper omfg scene was the first kiss scene under the teachers desk <3 I was thinkinh "OHHHHH NO, they are not doing it...THEY ARE DOING IT"

Was really boring, I hated Komatsu's acting, she was annoying and terrible!!
I just had to complete it for Yamapi since I didn't watch anything of him in a looong time!

I mean..
if this cutie appears on the screen every single minute, who would turn off the movie and stop watching?

- I love you sensei
- Hm.... I think i love you too
- Oh. I don't belive you. Prove it
- My father commited suicide when i was 12. Will you marry me after school?
- ... Okay

And all that with poker face on both

Ok, so despite I love Yamashita Tomohisa and despite the good acting of all the cast, the film doesn't make you feel strong emotions, of any sort. It is cute, but it's nothing 'omg'. The 'love btw student-teacher' story is sth very 'catchy', imo, so there's no way one would say it's bad, I think. Even bc even I would fall for a teacher like that. LOL!

@curi so you claim that a 20 something years old dude can't have a relationship with a 16 something years old girl? (based on saying that he should have been arrested :P). I think that we overthink those kind of things and those works try to engage us to see that sometimes it's not that simple.
