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.
Maybe I shouldn't be making a review for this movie. I wanted to stop watching it after like... 2 minutes, and I think it was the 10 minute mark when even my wife wanted to stop watching it... but that conveys how poor this movie is.
If you don't want me spoiling the first 2 minutes of the movie, move on... but I have to spoil it to adequately explain how much those two minutes just made me instantly hate this movie. You've been warned.
So... the main female lead tripped the "Senpai" (Never learned his name) and had the audacity to yell at HIM for
wasting her time. Instantly there's a bad taste in my mouth and I'm questioning if I want to continue this. Tsundere is one thing... but this girl is just being unapologetic for an accident SHE caused. I started to check out, but it gets better. Somehow from the angle he was at, he could presumably see her panties. There is even a great shot for doing distance estimations... which got me thinking. Is it even possible to see her panties? The answer is no... no it's not. There is no way he could have seen her panties. This shot was so awkward that I actually repositioned my couch and had my wife stand on it in order to see if it was even remotely possible. It's not. Even if your mind plays tricks on you and makes you think you might be seeing something... it's all heavily shadowed.
But that was merely a post "I'm out" experiment. In the moment, that scene was so bad that it nailed the coffin shut and I walked away. I heard it playing in the background and then my wife asked me if we wanted to watch something else.... pretty much anything else.
That's when I came here to update my list as "dropped" and realized... I think this show is so bad, I should waste more time than I spent watching it... writing a review.
Admittedly... it took longer to write the review because of my before-mentioned experiment.
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.
