Let me start by saying I watched this in cinema, and when it finished, the collective "that's it?" from the audience was audible; that's how disappointing it was. I am not exaggerating.
Though I have not watched the previous movie in this series, from the official website it suggests this to be a standalone movie that you can enjoy regardless and has good reviews from people who did not watch the first one. So I went ahead to watch it. But honestly I think only the people who watched the first movie would have felt anything from it.
The main problem here is that there was almost
no time for one to build an attachment to the main characters and feel anything for anyone. If you are seeking the signature heart-wringing moments in a romance movie, turn back now. There is none to be had here. There are a few cute/funny scenes but beyond that this movie is bland.
The entire movie is 65 minutes, and things progress fast. *very minor spoiler* The main characters go from first years at junior high to being in a high school in like 15 minutes. The timeskips are jarring. I got the feeling like the movie had a lack of budget and and scenes were aggressively cut for it. Of the two guys in the love triangle, one of them barely had any screentime, so you just knew who she was going to end up with. The characters and relationships are sorely underdeveloped.
This movie is very low on substance and is entirely a promotional vehicle for HoneyWorks songs. If not here for the music, don't watch it.
the story pretty much centered around protagonist name Hina who love her senpai and her struggle to confess her love. to be honest, in terms of love story, it's pretty much decent without any complicated stuff/event, and I like that kind of storyline.
I love the art of this movie. since the duration of movie was not that long, I think they might want to focused a little bit about the art and that's something that I like about it's art.
The one thing I really love about this movie is the original soundtrack. I do believe it's the core
of this anime and I really enjoy the music. Once again, Honeywork's did an good job creating such a wonderful music.
Like a previous movie, the characters are decent. every single one of them have their own characteristic and they have their own romantic love. It's not great but you can pretty much enjoy their action.
I do enjoy this movie. They have a certain event that makes you laugh and sometimes it makes you want to scream at them but overall, it was enjoyable.
Suki ni naru is an good movie. I do love their story, I do love their art and I do love their music. for those who want to watch simple love story, maybe you can check this out. Thank you for reading my review.
Here we have a story about a girl who wants to confess to her senpai but y'know what happens with senpais. In simple words it is very cliche and also a very simple movie. To be honest, I liked this movie more than the first although there was so much irony I was like dying inside. I believe you should watch the first movie first before watching the sequel.
The story was very cliche but handled the cliches in the mediocre side of the spectrum. Although boring at times, it is survivable to go through all the boring moments.
Sound and Art were my shit in this
film. Although it's not as designed carefully as the music videos Honeyworks makes outstanding art which is very pretty. The sound is my jam, mostly because honeyworks makes the most songs with the catchiest toons you can't anywhere else.
Characters were so very disappointing. To sum it all up childhood friends a boy who was a tsundere and a girl kinda acts like it as well and there's a senpai who's changing for someone and considered the girly type which is pretty cliche. I have watched each music video of the Confession Committee so far that has come out and the supporting characters such as the twin tail girl who looks at a girl getting separated by her classmates and why is that? It isn't really explained at all and it would've been nice for more character development but you can't really do that with supporting characters if you only have 1 hour to do so.
Overall, the series was pretty okay and is pretty shoujo-like. You would probably like this if you like the first film or shoujo manga or if you only like looking at beautiful visuals and music.
-------------Suki ni Naru Sono Shunkan wo.: Kokuhaku Jikkou Iinkai---------------
So, this is the continuation of Zutto Mae kara Suki deshita.: Kokuhaku Jikkou Iinkai, and boy, I have to say that they are the complete opposites. If you saw the first one you are going to see some of the characters from that movie, which is pretty nice. Its a pretty cute movie, but is just a simple movie.
[ART & ANIMATION]
The art of this anime is pretty cute but sometimes it seems weird, mostly because of their faces and eyes. There is something off with them that I find unpleasant and weird. In the other hand,
the character design is pretty good, I like their school uniforms and I didn't seem to hate or love the way their bodies are constructed. The background was nice and simple, almost seen in a lot of amines. Personally, I didn't enjoy the art mostly because of the unpleasant design for the eyes and faces, but I don’t think is that bad. The animation seems some kind of stuck in some frames and it doesn't seem smooth, at least they don't seem unproportioned or doing weird maneuvers. The animation is passable. 6/10
The sound used in general was good, I like the VA and could recognize some of them. The VA work is pretty good and every voice I could fit with their characters. The music that the choose is pretty nice to listen to, and they can fit the emotion that the situation transmits. I didn't have any problems with it, and I'm actually looking forward to searching the songs and listening them in my free time. 7/10
This were I have the most problems with in general with this anime. First, I have to say that in general the story is intriguing and I personally like romance and drama anime, and this anime touches the story pretty good and in a cute way. The thing is that it introduces a lot of characters in so little time to actually care about all of them. Also, the anime tries to build a story, a lot of times, where it doesn't need to be, and it leaves stories incomplete. This also happens in the first movie so don't be surprised. The story seems to be rushed and they tried to develop more story that they actually can fit in the time they have. I believe that ending (after the credits) seemed force, so It can leave a happy ending to the viewer, but I honestly didn't like that force ending. 5/10
In general, I did like the anime but it had a lot of problems that it can improve. I recommend watching this movie for people that like shoujo anime, like me, and they don't have anything to do. It's a pretty normal anime, that is a cute bland anime to pass the time. Overall: 6/10
