Review
I’d read what happened in this film before. there’s this really good site where you can read what happened to the anime you’re watching… basically, it’s spoilers. But then she/he stopped, so, yeah. I stopped reading too. Anyway, when I first saw the film, I thought, I had to watch it. I even watched the anime. But I saw the actors and actresses and honestly, they are all ugly. It was really disappointing.
Well, story wise, it was okay. it was a film so the fast pace was okay. Hachi’s story was a little annoying. Her boyfriend hugged someone else in front of her. She cried. Just that. I would kill him and her for sure. I guess it’s okay though. COz she’s not violent like me. In fact Hachi is very childish in her acts and the way she thinks. She thinks that her boyfriend’s love for her won’t change even though they were separated. She’s very optimistic and she’s pretty much self-involved. The other Nana, Nana is a serious girl who was abandoned many times. She’s not the type you think will become problematic because of love, but she is. She’s got a weird accent when it comes to English but it does captivate you, like Hachi said in the film.
The characters weren’t the best but they were also okay. The characters are different from each other especially the two Nana but it was entertaining to see them together. There were also a lot of funny contradiction in the characters. Yuzu is a lawyer but he’s the drummer of their Gothic-like rock band. then the other guy is a rich kid that’s inheriting an inn. It’s a hotel by the way. Anyway, Ren is a serious guy, so serious that when he was going all kilig, see my word of my days, it wasn’t noticeable.
The film over all was okay. It could’ve been better but it was worth my time. Score is 7.8/10
