If you're in the mood for an incredibly contrived and slow paced film with good looking actresses, you'll like this movie. Otherwise save yourself the 2 hours and skip it.
The dialog is extremely slow and frequently just painful to watch. Yui's character doesn't come across as anything more than an immature and inexperienced ("baka!" - Japanese for stupid) young girl, who says and does things that just leave you asking, "Why??!!"
Perhaps my expectations were set too high by the only other user comment for this film, but for me it was a complete disappointment. Yui/Aoki-san is extremely cute, but the storyline and dialogs are just dead on arrival. I watched this film with my girlfriend, and we both kept expecting something interesting to happen, but it never did. I was going to rate it 3 stars out of pity, but she insisted on 1 star, which I can agree with and assure you it's not just a man's one-sided view of a romance story.
