The new school year is starting and every girl in Takahashi's class is talking about Yano. After meeting him on the school rooftop, she falls for him, not knowing that his heart still belongs to someone else he can't have.
Nana ends up falling in love for Yano - the guy that 2 out of 3 girls in school fall for. But she's different and gets closer to him, so they finally start a relationship. But she soon has to realize, that he isn't fully ready to give his heart away, because it's still with his ex-girlfriend: in her grave.
I was kind of looking forward to it for Ikuta Toma. And even though he plays really well, I think he's too old for this role of a high schooler. But since the 2nd part will play in the future, where he needs to look all grown up, I'll just accept it.
But now to my real problem with Yano - and only with Yano, because Ikuta Toma himself was wonderful.
What did the makers of the movie think, when they cut out the whole perverted-side of Yano? It's rather important, since it will make you understand some of the nearly-bed-scenes in the movie. As well as his whole issue with being all easygoing and telling her to date just because she confessed. There was missing so much of the playboy Yano, and even though I didn't find it bad at first, I really missed it in the end. Also, his feelings came from nowhere. It was just like that, because it was like that in the manga and the anime. Honestly, if I hadn't watched the Anime, I probably wouldn't have understood a lot of the movie...
For the good parts, the rest of the characters are really lovely. I like the friendship between Yano and Takeuchi. I also like Nana and how she deals with him. The scenery of the movie was also very nice and everything was filmed nicely. I felt like I saw a lot of the scenes from the manga again. I also hope that the second part will be better, even though the first part was so slow and at times even boring.
I'll rate it 3*, since I still enjoyed watching it a bit. There were funny parts and I love the storyline with Nana and Takeuchi.
Both star Ikuta Touma and are about the protagonist's high school love interest. Both movies follow their love story to see if they live happily ever after (Treating Bokura Ga Ita 1 and 2 as one story).
