A film for the fans of Yui Aragaki
10 March 2018 | by e-70733See all my reviews

Apparently, this is a film that is made for the fans of Yui Aragaki, all her fans will love the film. Technically, although the original story is very perfunctory, the grinding of the details is relatively mature.Also, all the stars proceeded cartoonish performances through the whole movie, so the main plot of immature is predictable.However, several major point of emotional processing is appropriate, and the necessary emotion manifestation for a genre film is was well executed. As for the performance of two major actresses, Yui Aragaki won in the temperament, while Ryoko Hirosue showed her power of a veteran skill.
