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).

I have to say that I loved it, but don't mind me, i'm a big fan of the Lovely Complex manga and anime, hahaha! I think you're going to enjoy it if you like anime style!

I loved the cast! They were purrrrrfect, Teppei Koike was a perfect Otani, i couldn't help but fall for him! I almost scream when I saw Mizushima Hiro as Suzuki, cuz he's Suzuki's seiyuu in the anime, it was so cute.

I'd recommend it ONLY if you like Lovely Complex manga and anime <3

I've never seen the anime so I can't say whether I'm disappointed in the adaptation or not xD
For me the actors were not that good and everything was happening in a weird motion and everything...
I don't know. It was a bearable movie with some cute moments but I wouldn't watch it again ~

The girl somewhat reminds me of F(x)'s Sulli *-*

I feel like if you went into this film without knowing anything about the anime or manga then it'd be quite good.. maybe. Don't get me wrong I still did enjoy it.. but for fans of the anime or manga series it is quite disappointing.

Anime is better, that's a fact. But I couldn't help myself cracking up a lot of times because the movie is just so ridiculous! As a comedy, this movie gets 4 stars because it's hilarious. But the story supposed to be a romance/comedy... and I didn't really saw good romance moments... :/ It's an extravant movie with a lot of weird effects and an horrible japanese narrator who tries to speak english (fantasticly funny) So yes, quite enjoyable.
