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.
"who is she going to confess her love to?", "who is she in love with?" ,"everyone in love", "I know she is in love with someone".....as they keep thinking like that they start hurting each other with words they don't mean it.
The movie is your typical sweet RomCom, which talks about a group of friends being secretly in love with each other and we can't forget the love triangle. The story wasn't any new but to me, every single one has its own charm just like this movie which has its unique way of getting them to struggle until they find their way to master
their courage to confess!!
The art was pretty nice as they show us cute smiles, sad expressions, and tears of joy, jealousy, and happiness!!.As for the sound, it was good!!!
-Art: 9/10 (a wonderful animation)
-Sound: 10/10 ( The sound was a great impact to the story)
-Character: 8/10 ( every character has her own charm)
-Overall: 9/10 (it was a great movie!! I really enjoyed it!)
If you've read a lot of romance manga you probably won't consider the story as very original. The entire movie is about different characters trying to build up the courage to confess their love. However, I do not believe that there are many animated stories of this kind which makes it unique in it's own sense. Sure, it doesn't have any super original plot point or anything that makes it very unique, but the story is well executed for what it is and if you're into more pure love stories, I believe you'll like the story in this one.
I rarely care about the art
in anime to be honest. The art is good and of normal 2016-standard.
Some fantastic songs that set the mood very well. Really was a big part of the movie for me.
The characters themselves are nothing out of the ordinary, but what is special is the relationships between the character. Natsuki and Yuu are your typical childhood friend love cliche, Akarin and Mochizuki have never really talked with eachother properly, and Haruki and Miou are pretty much dating, but they haven't realized it yet. It was interesting to see all these different types of relationships in one movie.
Through most of the movie I was screaming at the characters to just get together already, but I must say that I really found the story and characters refreshing in a time where ecchi, magical girls and tragedy rules the romance anime industry.
I feel like a lot of loose ends will meet in the sequel which will be released in december, but until then I'll give this movie an 8 overall score. It's really worthwhile if you like pure high-school romance animes, and especially if you like series like Ao Haru Ride. Don't expect someting AMAZING and I'll think you'll enjoy this movie.
This might be the first time i write a review but i take really serious in giving some comments about this movie.
Story : 6/10 || Enjoyment : 6/10
In my opinion, this movie is a nothing special romance movie compare to others. I don't dislike this movie but for me, this kind of movie is too mainstream school set romance plus it is a movie with a cliffhanger ending which i hate the most. Besides, the duration of this movie is too short and messed up the plot.
The good about the movie is the charms of the characters with cool auras. Not to forget this
movie have a heartwarming and giving some advices about love-life for viewers.
To brief my review,
Art : 9/10
I really love the art which is giving pleasant to the eyes with good sceneries.
Sound : 8/10
The songs in this movie are all my favourites before this movie was made including the ost. In other word, it is a masterpiece.
Character : 9/10
This review is just on what i've been thought about this movie so i hope you like it. Sorry if it is not really a good review.
I'm always a sucker for a sweet, innocent, slice of life romance; and this, my friends, really hit the spot.
There are many many slice of life romance anime out there, but not all of them tend to go very well in my opinion.
A lot of the time i end up very frustrated while watching because of misunderstandings or lack of chemistry or something along those lines. That wasn't the case for this movie though.
The characters were all extremely likable, there actually wasn't a single character i was annoyed by (which rarely happens).
The art was lovely, which is something i'm very picky with.
And the music was
really enjoyable! I tend not to like/care about the music in anime, if a song catches my attention its pretty rare, but i really loved the music in this to the point where i actually searched it up on youtube afterwards.
Anyways, if you are looking for a sweet, fluffy, carefree anime to watch and squeal to then I definitely recommend this one.
