Love is blooming at Sakuragaoka High School. Natsuki Enomoto has finally mustered the courage to confess to her childhood friend, Yuu Setoguchi. However, in the final moments of her confession, an embarrassed Natsuki passes it off as a "practice confession." Oblivious to her true feelings and struggling with his own, Yuu promises to support Natsuki in her quest for love. While Natsuki deals with her failed confession, fellow classmate Koyuki Ayase struggles with his own feelings for Natsuki. Despite his timidness, he is determined to win over her heart.

Zutto Mae Kara Suki deshita.: Kokuhaku Jikkou Iinkai follows Natsuki as she dreams of one day ending her practices and genuinely confessing to Yuu. Meanwhile, close friends also find themselves entangled in their own webs of unrequited love and unspoken affections.

Mixed Feelings
I didn't really expect much going into this movie, as just from the summary it seemed pretty unoriginal. Plus, the short run-time wasn't doing it any favors considering the multiple points of view it was trying to convey in a short period of time.

Story: 5

The unoriginal and uninspired plot makes for a bit of a boring watch. The scenes from multiple different perspectives are lumped together awkwardly to the point where you have trouble discerning almost anything other than what is currently happening between the characters in the scene. The ending could be better and the cliffhanger isn't even a good cliffhanger. It didn't leave ...

“I've Always Liked You” is what happens when… honestly? I have no idea. Maybe it’s what happens when You have a metal rod stuck in Your frontopolar cortex and yet someone forces You at gunpoint to write a script.

It’s hard for me to even call this a movie. It’s just a series of scenes stitched together in a chaotic way. There is an overarching motif (confessions) but its execution is so bland You’ll forget about it in an instant.

Let’s get this out of the way. This is one of those cases where the story is plot driven and not character driven. The focus isn’t the ...
