Storyline

Seventeen year old high school student Rio Ozawa is always the center of attention due to her beauty. Yet Rio has never cared about anyone but herself due to her traumatic past. Her friends exist only so she can use them for her gains. Rio is only interested in money. She is involved in "compensated dating" and extortion. One day Rio's photographs get mixed up at the store with those of another person of last name Ozawa. She then meets 35 year old college professor Kouki Ozawa, and falls in love for the first time. Rio feels confused by her emotions. She changes from a confident, mature person, to something more like a typical schoolgirl with a huge crush. She follows Kouki around, asks him to tutor her, and wants to date him. Although Kouki becomes interested in Rio, there is a reason he doesn't pursue the relationship. However, Rio is very insistent and starts changing her whole world for the better in order to be with him. Suddenly Kouki disappears without saying goodbye, and Rio ... Written by ramazansengul

Apparently it is not a crime in Japan for women to be hot
12 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

unlike in the West where women are encouraged to be repulsive and gross and sexist and ... hey WOMEN"S POWER (and all that crap).

I need to CLEARLY get into Japanese films. if this movie is any indication that is where the fun and adventure and cuteness is.

This film has a story and it is interesting. It teaches you something. The women are hot and cute and you are actually interested in them. It could have been another hour longer and I would have watched more of it.

The stalker girl is just so beautiful and smart. Her friends are just eye candies that also draw you in with their triumphs and tragedies. The man has personality and you want to know what will happen to him. The cousin subplot and her contributions are also noteworthy. Wow, I wish the cast, writer and director hell even the studio that made this would tour the west on a seminar on how to attract people to film and unlike Hollywood not push people away from film!
