Later in life, Takuma becomes aware that he wont be able to keep this promise and he begins distancing himself from Mayu in hopes of protecting her. Written by
I saw this on an ANA flight from Japan to the USA - probably the only way I could see it since it doesn't seem to have been released in the USA.
Anyway, I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't as predictable as the title suggested and was not given a Hollywood happy ending. I didn't realize that manga were sometimes weepy teenage love stories.
I actually found the movie quite entertaining. Definitely weepy in parts. There's one absolutely surprising, hilarious, and brilliant scene where she berates him in front of the whole school for trying to break up with her. I watched it several times because it was so funny. Made the whole movie worth watching!
