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

This movie was suggested to me online and what a surprise
3 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

Where should I begin?

Great story that entertains and engages you. Fun circumstances and a world of wonder that is so different from my day-to-day, but is real enough that allows me to dream and imagine myself in this situation.

The girls. The girls. Apparently in Japan it is not a crime to be pretty and sexy and dress well. I suppose they don't have obese women who will hate on them.

Hollywood, I hope this film does not become popular as a result of streaming websites. Then you will try to remake it with an agenda of ugliness, grossness and the women will be pathetically anti-beauty.
