Post’s Author Opinion:
Note: This is a personal opinion, it does not reflect YaoiOtaku’s official position towards the novel.
This was nice. Not even close to being one of my favourites, but it was okay. The story doesn’t stand out in any way, there’s nothing catchy about it, the acting is pretty much average (although I did like the characters) and my first thought after watching it was to look up the manga because I kept getting manga vibes from it. Sure enough, the film is a manga adaptation. Since I enjoyed the film I’m pretty sure I’m going to like the manga as well and I suspect I would have been disappointed in the film if I would have read the manga first.
The film had some funny bits as well and I liked that a lot. I liked and wanted to give a big hug to Youichi, Sakurai was in need of a wake up call at some point, and I disliked Fujimoto, the guy was so pushy.
Overall, the film is giving off nice vibes, it was cute, and also the paintings were really good, there was one in particular that I liked a lot.
