Sweet story about gaining confidence through innocent friendship & love. Maybe a bit slow at times but I thought it worked well for the overall style of the movie. The acting was also not bad which I wasn't expecting. I loved the friendship between the 3 female leads & also how the story focused more on Sawako's struggle to gain her own voice to defend her friends & say how she really feels rather that actual love between the male & female lead. Also great cinematography, there were some lovely shots that fitted perfectly with the background music. I really enjoyed this one a lot!

About good natured girl which is being cast aside from the people of her surroundings, because of her scary appearance.

Az indavideon néztem meg, ahol azért MH -ról írták,"elég jó" stb, de jót derültem ezen a megjegyzésen! MH látványa az, ami engem ott fogott!!!

Szal ezt megpróbálom betudni a kulturális különbségnek és nekiállok a maradék másfél órának."

Well I thought it was cute and well-done. The cinematography was actually nice (some Japanese movies make me cringe in that respect), and the acting was good - they all acted like I remember the characters in the manga (although I read it several years ago).

Some plotlines weren't solved, unfortunately, or if they were, it was just a brief shot of them after the credits (I wanted to know more!) but alas, I guess the movie was long enough already...

The movie is good (: And i like it since it's kinda different from manga/anime. They changed some things in a really nice way, it could be boring without it.

I watched this because of Haruma miura <3 .. it's a beautiful movie but i didn't like the end so much, i think it would be better if they kissed or hugged each other, still good.

I only watched this movie because of Haruma Miura.I knew he would make a great Kazahaya. Physically, all of the characters fit the role perfectly except for Kurumi. The story was stale it didn’t flow properly. The thing that ruined it was the portrayal of the characters. We didn’t get to learn about their stories, like in the anime and their personalities were somewhat off. Haruma did a great job and I think that if this had been a drama instead of a movie I would’ve liked it more. The story was slow but at the same time rushed and it definitely wasn’t the same without Pin (the intern) who brought lots of humor to the drama. I didn’t like Sadako much either but if you watch the anime, you won’t regret it. The romance in the anime is slow but it’s totally worth watching..

Awww, it was really cute and lovely :3
Really good but it wasn't so memorable... Just to watch it once.
The cast was really good, they looked very similar to the anime!
