I love this story. It’s a very cute anime that is based on a manga by the same name. Though I enjoyed the movie, the anime is so much better.
We follow Tachibana Mei, a quiet girl who has trouble trusting people because of a traumatic experience as a child. This, however, doesn’t stop Kurosawa Yamato from falling for her and forcing himself int her life. Slowly their relationship grows as they get to know each other. Tachibana starts to come out of her shell and starts interacting with people more.
I’m pretty sure I found the anime first before starting the manga. Though the movie is a great jumping off point, the anime really fills in some of the holes left from the movie. This is a really cute anime and the story is very real. I love the characters in this story and they are not so over the top that you can’t relate to them. Overall, I love this anime and it’s worth the watch.
Say “I love you” Live Action Movie
Otaku Talks Anime – Say I Love You Podcast
This movie has both an anime and a manga series that are related to them. Like most live action movies there is a lot that is cut out of the movie because it would just be too long to incorporate everything.
We follow Tachibana Mei (Kawaguchi Haruna) as she gets pursued by Kurosawa Yamato (Fukushi Sota). Tachibana is a socially awkward girl who has been hurt by people her entire life so she ha a hard time trusting people. Enter Kurosawa’s middle school best friend Takemura Kai (Ichikawa Tomohiro), he’s gone through the same things as Tachibana and can relate to her in a way that Kurosawa can’t. Who will she end up with?
I love the story and the cast was perfect in this movie. I’m a huge fan and I can definitely suggest this one to people. However, I will say that you should watch the anime and read the manga if you like this story line.
