I saw this movie on the weekend and it was really good. It was funny, poignant and beautifully shot. The soundtrack is also ass kicking.
The title of the movie means to be popular romantically. And basically for our protagonist, it means to get to sleep with a lot of girls, although he only really interacts with two girls in the whole movie. The main character, Yukiyo, starts off in the movie completely down on his luck. He’s job-less, girlfriend-less and leads a pretty shit life. He decides to change his life for the better and get a job and perhaps the rest will follow.
He meets Nagasawa Masami’s character, Miyuki, on twitter and he falls for her very hard, even though he later finds out that she has a live-in boyfriend. Yukiyo also meets Miyuki’s friend, Rumiko, and Rumiko falls for Yukiyo hard but he doesn’t seem to reciprocate her feelings.
In short, it is a romantic comedy, although the ending is pretty unrealistic and kind of ruins all of his character building. Because to be honest, the way it ends is kind of impossible…
LOTS OF SCREENCAPS NOW!
