Twelve days in and I’m a little over 23K words. My daily word count over the last few days has not been impressive and I’ve been eating away at the margin I’ve given myself earlier on in the month.
I definitely need to get back in the groove.
This was a beautiful romance story that I hesitate to expand on lest I spoil the movie.
Just watching the two characters fall in love… and experience their relationship… it was just so lovely.
And the two characters are so very passionate about their likes and dislikes, which can be very relatable and fun to watch.
A very sweet and cute movie.
It’s an adaptation of a manga series, which I haven’t read, but it has all the tropes you’d expect of a shoujo manga. This is not necessarily a bad thing, though some scenes that might look okay as a 2D, static drawing can be a bit cringy when acted out in live-action. There was certainly a lot of tittering in the cinema.
That said, still a very enjoyable movie; there’s definite buy-in for the relationship of the two main characters. And if you’ve ever had a crush on anyone before, the storyline is very very relatable.
Apart from one side actor’s over-acting, I think the movie was pretty good.
It was a pleasant movie that probably won’t take you for an emotional roller coaster ride, but was still interesting.
The artwork was all very pretty and the movie does a good job of making you interested in suibokuga and appreciating the art form.
For most of the movie, I kept thinking, “This would have been better as a TV series.”
I felt like the relationship between the two leads would have benefitted from more screen time. Also, the scope of the story could have been much larger and deeper.
As it is, I felt like the story was too rushed and the resolution a little too simple.
Now, I went into this movie knowing nothing about the background of the story. I didn’t know this was originally a manga series.
Therefore, my opinion above is as a person who is coming to the movie new, and not as an existing fan of the IP. I also could not comment on whether the movie accurately represented the original material.
A funny movie that depicts the slog of office life in a humorous way.
Who hasn’t felt the work week seems to go on forever?
This is like Groundhog Day, except the loop lasts for a week, and more and more of the office workers are noticing the repeat.
It’s not all just silly antics though; at its core there’s a tender message.
This is well worth a watch.
I think my neighbours just started keeping chickens. I can hear them clucking outside my bedroom window… 🐔
