Maeda Taiki works in a clothing store in Tokyo. He is a shy boy who has no confidence in himself and believes he is ugly. Yagii Haruhisa is the manager of the shopping center where Maeda works; he is handsome, kind, and popular with everyone. Maeda is secretly in love with Yagii, but he doesn't have any hope that his crush will ever notice him. However, one day at a party, Yagii kisses Maeda, much to the latter's surprise. Maeda's dreams seem to be becoming true as Yagii confess his love for him and soon they began a relationship. Despite loving each other, their happiness is short-lived since Yagii is transferred to another branch in Osaka. The distance, Maeda's anxiety and jealousy, as well his lack of confidence, threaten to destroy his relationship with Yagii forever.

This movie is perfect in my eyes. Is the acting pretty bad? Yes it is. Are there a couple cliches? Yeah. Totally, but they're great.
This movie while very simplistic takes on a concept I've never seen before. The main character is a guy who is plagued by his anxiety. Because of this, there may be a time where the viewer'd get annoyed, but the ending is completely satisfying. It's a love story that leaves you with nothing but happiness. It's super pure and super sweet.
It's a JAPANESE MOVIE. I want to say that about every Japanese anything. Because of this, the way the movie is shot and the elements of it will be weird to someone who is not accustomed to Japanese stuff. However if you like Japanese stuff, this is perfect for you.

Rewatch value?: For you crazy BL fans, 100%.

STORY: This guy has always thought he was ugly and accepted himself this way. Then he falls in love with a guy and the situations lead them to start a relationship, but his insecurities keep him from being happy as he overthinks about everything. Typical BL format with a lot of communication issues between the couple. Good part is that they fix their problems right away and manage to get some good interactions. Their relationship is sweet and they do get a happy ending.
ACTING/CAST: They managed to make the characters seem as they should, although the supporting characters were really shallow.
MUSIC: Regular
REWATCH VALUE: 6/7
OVERALL: I liked it and the story was pretty consistent. It's a typical japanese BL and the ending is quite warming.
