I'm glad I stuck out the beginning of this film, as the early part of it left me irritated; fortunately, it gradually drew me in-- it was refreshing to see a Millenial get his nose up out of his phone and connect for real with a woman! What I liked best about the film was the sense of what it would be like to live in Tokyo; I spent a few days there, and loved it. The street scenes with the neon signs and dense crowding really captured the feel of the city. The cast came across as authentic, and I have to disagree with one of the other reviewers who panned the music-- it too seemed real and appropriate for the story. All in all, a pleasant surprise; give it a chance.
