I have two tests tomorrow, and what better way to screw myself over then to watch a movie that makes me cry. Koizora is a love story that was originally published on a popular cellphone blog in Japan. It was written by Mika, who says the story is based of her own experiences. In summary, Mika (the main female character named after the author,) fell in love with a school mate named Hiroki, or simply Hiro. Throughout the novel, and movie, Mika had to face many trials such as rape, abortion, and betrayal. But with the help of Hiro, family, and friends, she manages to overcome these trials. The movie started off very light and happy, but it was downhill from there. It was very emotional. Although I cried at the end, it was still really sad to watch. Especially, when I found out half way through (took a break) that the story was based on the author’s experiences. If I was to compare this with any other drama, it is similar to 1 Litre of Tears in terms of depressing factor, but focusing on romance.
Overall, I really liked watching it. It’s a nice shock to the systems, not sure if that’s good for me or not but we’ll see ^^p
Here’s one of the insert songs that played in the movie. Warning, there may be spoilers.
