Unexpectedly good movie. I was ready for something good based on the synopsis and ratings, but it was slightly better than anticipated.

I liked Shun from the very start, but I was a little weary of Nagisa. I feel like he took Shun for granted and expected him to just do what Nagisa wanted. He was being unfair to Shun while giving him no explanation. I started liking him more after he properly apologised and admitted to his wrongdoings, but I still don’t like him 100%. I do think Shun and Nagisa make a great pair and there was definitely chemistry between the characters.

The movie deals with things like gay couples rising a child, struggling to conform to social norms and accepting one’s own sexuality which I thought was really cool.

A+ acting from everyone; Keiko Toda was great, I was cheering for her during the court scenes, and Sora might be one of the sweetest kids I saw in a movie (which is huge coming from me), she was just adorable.

Ultimately my favourite was Shun, he stayed true to his principles throughout the movie and there was a bit of character growth too. I liked how he bonded with Sora and how supportive he was of Nagisa.

Definitely a really good watch!
