Kurosaki-kun no Iinari ni Nante Naranai’s big-screen adaptation is finally out for us to feast on and swoon over! The movie greatly exceeded my expectations. The plot drastically thickened as emotions were torn and friendships were put to a test. There were tons of blush-worthy moments and as the movie progressed, I felt like going back to my teenage, hormone-driven years. Tehehe!
TBH, I have to do a re-watch before I fully recap this one. Lots of things are going on in this movie; familial problems, social belongingness, unrequited love, friendly rivalries, guilt complex, love triangles, so on and so forth.
Over all, it was okay. It’s just that I find the earlier parts of the movie too draggy and momentum only picked up after the accidental kiss. Also, the male lead’s character is too “spineless” for my taste. Well, those were my only regrets. 🙂
This is part-two of the two-part mini-series. Unlike the first installment, I find this episode a lot more promising. Yes, there were cheesy, unnecessary scenes but at least we get to see some character development especially for Black Devil Kurosaki who proves to be kinder than what he leads on. White Prince Shirakawa also showcased a more aggressive stance in the budding love triangle. I’m quite disappointed with Yuu’s character though. She hasn’t really showed the full-on confidence I was looking for. Obviously, the show is holding back for the big-screen adaptation. Hopefully, we see a feisty, strong-willed Yuu there.
PS: This is just a prequel, so yeah, expect a movie recap soon. Of course, it’ll only be available once Eng subs are released.
