Short hair and nice legs
30 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

I have to say that I am disappointed. The girl had short hair and looked like a boy as a result. Thank goodness for her legs. It made the film better especially when she is out shopping and you feel she is a woman and is worth looking at. I was more interested in the new teacher and the girl's fellow student Nami Chain than I was in the short hair student.

The subject of student and teacher love is not so taboo anymore, her it happens and is natural among humans, but why would the man choose the student over the much cooler and prettier new teacher? or at least pick nami Chan that would be more natural.

Still, if you are interested in taboo love that society has forbidden this is a good film. It also makes a good point. A student may be a book worm and a nerd, but she still has feelings and needs love and sex. DVD is on sale at buy.com where we got it from or look at yesasia which is usually reliable.
