      I really enjoyed this manga, but I feel like this movie is badly miscast.
      In addition, I never understood Tsuchiya Tao’s appeal as an actress and why she’s being pushed so much.

    • Didn’t know this was gonna be a live action movie.

      I remember the manga (and anime adaptation) to be full of sharp comedic moments and quirky character interactions. Neither are present in this teaser trailer.

      Tsuchiya as Shizuku? Doesn’t feel right, somehow.

      They didn’t forget Nagoya :D I was just thinking about when they will release the teaser few days ago XD Either way I loved the manga and the anime and I’m totally here for the kyunkyuning moments (because Suda Bae is in) basically I’m ready haha <33
