A great drama, film, anime, manga, or any form of media has many elements to be considered to determine whether it's worthwhile or not. Therefore, I need to preface this that I didn't come here to see check this site before I saw this film. If I did I wouldn't haven't take note of the tag anyway. I sooner would have read the review & the comments - maybe.

There is RAPE – very GRAPHIC. This is not a spoiler, this is a warning. If you cannot stomach that, then don't watch it. I found it as unexpected as I did in A Round Trip to Love – very GRAPHIC and Together With Me.

This is an manga based movie. Of all the mangas, yaoi mangas, they could have picked from to turn into a film they chose this one boggles the mind. I went to read the manga* after this travesty to see if I could rationalize this travesty, however two things seemed to happen:
Questions:
1) did the scriptwriters feel they had to remain faithful to the manga?! 2Moons scriptwriters felt the same to their doom.
2) why choose such a poorly conceptualized story? - was it b/c of the popularity of Nodame Cantabile?

I didn’t have a clue for no.1 b/c really that leaves the characters utterly one dimensional and useless. As for no.2, It covers 2 points. The massive craze over BL that has taken over East Asian girls and international girls and men across the board. fujoshi fandom love. In addition, you get to tap into the Nodame Cantabile craze. Mentally it's a win-win. Problem is everything else.

This is a horribly conceptualized story about obsessive love, control, rape, cognitive dissonance, and abuse. We have an individual who will leave everything in his world behind, everything he has owned and search to the ends of the Earth to find this fig mental "thing" he has deemed his love. Then he will take what he "loves" and FORCE it to "love" him back. DEMAND it. The absurdity of it all is that everyone around the victim seems to believe the victim was blessed to be loved in such a way. The victim sees the absurdity of the situation but then falls prey to this thinking and believes the lie of those around him.

** You don't need to read the manga to understand film. I never read before the film. I just read it to see if I could rationalize something. However, it was a direct copy. It did help me in thinking through some of the ideas a bit. Not much.

Don't watch it! You'll regret it! (This movie doesn't deserve the overall user rating it has)








One word: Rape. Rape that is excused and diminished. It's treated like he just accidentally stepped on him. That's how much they don't care about it and act like it's nothing. Everyone, including the victim, acts like it's something to just move on from and forgive and forget. Not okay! And, "cultural differences" is not a valid explanation/excuse. He also almost rapes him a second time!

There have been some shows and movies I've watched with some questionable consent scenes. I can excuse these scenes for a lot of shows/movies, because it's questionable At Worst, they have only completely consensual scenes from then on, and I recognize that it's not real (TharnType is a perfect example of this, there is only that one shower scene, and that seemed to be consensual, it's questionable at worst). There have also been some (like Love by Chance), where there is a side couple that has a rape scene and uses it as a romantic trope, which is gross. I can skip it and watch the other couple/couples and be fine, because they aren't the focus.

This is not the case with this film. This film has one "couple." And it's not questionable consent at all, it's undeniably rape. I couldn't look past it or skip it. This was a waste of my precious time on this earth.

The only thing I'm getting out of watching this was that it was another movie added to my watchlist. That's it. I saw a thing. Unfortunately, it was horrible.
