Yay another movie review! Instead of watching movies and writing reviews though…perhaps I should be studying for finals??haha…anyhoo.. My synopsis and review aren’t as well written this time though because it’s actually REALLY difficult to write about this movie without throwing in any potential spoilers… 😄
Koizora ( Sky of Love) – Oh..and if you click on the link, it’ll send you to an awesome site of reviews, HOWEVER, there are spoilers on that link if you go pass the synopsis.
Trailer: (no subs)
Synopsis by me (no spoilers anywhere on this page!):
Koizora is a story about a sweet-naive girl named Maki and a silver-haired semi-trouble maker boy named Hiro. Based on a true story, the movie tells the tale of first love in high school and the heartaches and troubles they encounter along the way.
Koizora is a very cute and heart warming movie, however, it does fall under the genre of “cliche” love story that can be quite predictable. I’m a chump for corny movies, so I found this a pretty good watch. At times, I got pretty convoluted about how much time passed because SO much happened in such a short time frame, but overall it was an easy story to follow. Also, the devolution for their love sometimes was just a bit surreal/unrealistic and just plain silly (I would usually elaborate on this..but that would be spoiling it!). On the plus side though, actress Aragaki Yui and actor Miura Haruma do an amazing job in their roles, making it difficult to not fall in love with their characters as they battled love and hardships. This movie is known to be a huge tear jerker, and although I didn’t cry, I can definitely see why a lot of people would. Overall, I liked this movie a ton; interesting story, warming, and excellent acting. Before I forget…does no one in that school use the library or something? lol -___-
Oh! and the big question to ask is…do you REALLY believe that this story is based on a true one? Supposedly, the story is based off the author’s actual experience, but is it possible to have all that happen in that little of time? Some say its very unrealistic, but as for me..I think some of its a true story… that got exaggerated…just like every other big-screen movie.
On a side note…the bleached hair on Hiro looks really weird at first, but as I continued watching the movie, the crazy blond hair grew on me oddly enough. It was a part of the character and it was almost weird seeing him without it in the movie.
My rating: 7/10
Should you watch it? If you like cliche-sappy love stories, this is a winner. Although…I have heard this is a “hit or miss” kind of movie.
If you want to watch the movie, it’s streaming on crunchyroll! click >here< to watch! Apparently it has just been licensed recently! hmm….*ponder ponder*
