There will be singing right? RIGHT?
10 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie itself was not terrible, it was filmed rather well, and the merging of elements in the plot can be forgiven as the need to save time and make the plot less complex is necessary for most adaptation films.

However there is one gigantic glaring flaw in this movie that I can not overlook or downplay in anyway. The main character, Koyuki, never once sings throughout the entire movie. The base of this series is the singing of the main character, which never happens, instead you get to watch him mouth words silently, in what I assume is a desperate attempt to hide the actors inability to sing (in English perhaps?).

All in all this really ruined the movie for me, how can I watch an adaptation of one of my favorite manga's where the main character doesn't do the thing he is best at and acclaimed for. So, if you were looking forward to hearing Koyuki sing, you're better off watching the anime or fantasizing about it in your head, this movie will not satisfy on that account.
