This lovely live action movie is a good movie adaptation of the manga and anime. We get to see Mabuchi Kou (Higashide Masahiro) who comes back to his hometown after the death of his mother. He is forced to come face to face with his fist love who has changed so much. Yoshida Futaba (Honda Tsubasa) forces Kou to face his problems head on and doesn’t give him a place to hide anymore.
This is a good movie, though it is overly condensed. Knowing the source material, I will admit that there is a lot of material to condense into 2 hours. The two actors in this movie have a really good on screen chemistry and Higashide Masahiro portrays the struggling Kou perfectly. This is a really good movie to watch if you want to get a base knowledge of the anime and manga series.
