Koizora (the movie)Published on August 15th, 2008.
Very few movies and dramas has brought me to tears, four to be exact. But some days ago it happened again, the fifth movie/drama which has now brought me to tears is Koizora. One thing that’s for sure is that I’m not alone on this. The original story of Koizora, by the author Mika, was popularized on the cell phone novel site, 魔法のらんど (Mahou no Land), and since then it has been turned into a novel, a movie, and now a drama. The drama will be based on the movie, which follows the life of a normal high school girl who experiences many unbelievably sad events, but through it all proving that love conquers all, and this true love story remains unchanged from the movie. Not only does it simply portray the first love of the high school students, it shows the warmth from the family, the importance of life, the bonds with friends, and the common happenings of teens, and through it all Mika and Hiro’s love story gets unwound.
This is well worth watching, thanks to LvB for the recommendation, that guy’s always up to date when it comes to Gakki. The acting is good, the script is good, it’s just perfect. Having a movie and a drama with the same name is kind of messed up though.
