      The answer to #5 movie is No! Japan needs to stop glorifying statutory rape.

      Is it fair to say Narratage has performed poorly?

      • rey

        thought it did well

        • anita

          it did well as it wasn’t a wide release so 1bY is completely fine
          both movie are completely different
          Narratage is not a shoujo type of story like sensei and is taken more seriously

      • Reileen

        Narratage did well. 1 billion Yen in 4 weeks

        And what annoys me especially in those creepy teacher/student love stories is how the teacher looks like he has the same age as his students… NAH! Go cast old ass men to depict more realisticly what highschool teacher look like! Stop glamorizing this creepy situation portraying student/teacher “love” as a cute thing between two young people. Japan needs to take 5 fuckin seats.
