Koizora-恋空 (sky of love)
I’ve just finished watching Koizora.
And here’s my review. SPOILERS INCLUDED.
Koizora is basically a high school love story of 2 people who were madly in love with each other but ended up being in unwanted circumstances. The film was good but really fast-paced. I mean, the things that happened in the movie were so fast that It didn’t even seem realistic anymore. There were times when I just went “that’s just really stupid” because of how things happen in such a short period of time. At first I found the leading lady too impulsive; she met a boy, then a few days later the boy became her boyfriend then the same afternoon of that day,they had UHHHHHHHH. It was just so fast and plain weird. There were even parts of the movie when I thought the girl was just simply blinded by love. She meets a boy, he becomes her girlfriend, they have sex, the girl becomes pregnant and both of them decides for the child to be born. Strange isn’t it? oh and there was also a rape scene. All of those practically happened in the first 30 mins of the film. It was just a bit confusing at the start I guess. But after probably the first 30 mins, the story was quite easy to follow. There were a lot of uhhh shocking scences that seemed normal in the film. There was this scene where they were making-out in the school library during class hours. There were also a lot of cute scenes. I didn’t find it that much of a tear-jerker…actually I didn’t cry at all. But I understand why most people do. What I don’t understand though it that this film actually became a box office hit. Maybe it’s because of the cast (Miura Haruma and Aragaki Yui look so cute together XD).Over all, the movie was quite enjoyable. The acting of Miura Haruma (who plays the blonde-haired Hiro) and Aragaki Yui (who portrayed the role of mika) were really really good.
I’d give the movie a 7/10
