Much better then the anime tbh...
31 December 2018 | by IrishchatterSee all my reviews

This is my 3rd anime to real life movie and earlier on this year, I watched the anime. I honestly didn't like because I just felt that it made the characters unlikeable and I didn't like the animation either. However by watching it as real life movie at the end of 2018, it honestly made a difference to my liking. I found that this movie made me cry more of what the characters were going through and how it was presented well as a youth film. Yeah there is a bit of romance to it but you hardly see it in this film. I don't know about the animes version since I dropped it at a few episodes but it doesn't matter, I'm happy to say that this real life action was 10x better then it!

If you didn't like the anime version like myself, definately give yourself a second chance by watching this anime!
