Touching Love Story
30 September 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A touching love story about an introverted "otaku" character who has been in the same job for thirteen years and whose only interests are his pet frog and video games.

Although painfully shy he hands his umbrella to a girl in the rain only to meet her again when his parents attend a matchmaking event at which he learns that she is blind.

Their relationship unfolds but faces significant opposition from the blind girl's father who considers the hero unworthy of his daughter. The plots follows the couples attempts to be together despite the odds.

Occasionally slow, the film is a lovely study of its two main characters and the parents who try to ensure the best for them.
