Conclusion:
8/10
This movie had me laughing through the entire thing. It’s acted over the top and it’s really cute in many ways. I really love these types of Japanese movies because it really shows the differences between European and Japanese humor. I would recommend this to people who are used to these kinds of things though. I feel like not everyone would be so open into appreciating this type of things. I also thought it was fun recognizing Ryhei from Kanjani8!

I like the high contrast in this movie as well, a lot of clear colours and it was just rather appealing to watch. The plot was rather easy to understand and I thought the ending was surprising. It wasn’t what I thought it would be!
