User Reviews

 
Not Good Enough
7 July 2020 | by pennyelenabooksSee all my reviews

" Wotaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii " was a bit disappointing.

First of all, the leading lady was simply adorable. She did a great job with her character and she was entertaining and refreshing. Her music acts were well danced too. The male lead was nice too, but he could do better.

Now, the premises of the story are good, but the execution was bad. The musical acts were interesting overall, but they overtook the focus of the movie. That resulted in having too little time for the actual story, which had a messy pace and didn't allow for the characters to really develop or for the audience to get to know them. The ending was disappointing too.

So, overall, three out of ten.
