Aki (Takeru Sato) decided to quit his band right before their debut, but he would still provide the band ‘Crude Play’ with his self-composed songs. He then decides to date Riko (Sakurako Ohara), who doesn’t know anything about Aki besides his humming. Their relationship was set on a test, when Riko decided to become a singer and all the lies were exposed.
A love story between a 25 year sound-engineer with a heavy depression, and a 16 year old high school student with a voice of an angel. These two meet and start a relationship based on lies, but how will this turn out when they are both entering the show business.
A beautiful, emotional and relaxing movie, exactly how I love it. There is no clichés, no drama, no dragging just 2 hours of emotions. I know it sounds crazy, but I’ve waited for this movie for quite a while now, but it just took them so long to sub, so when I watched it, it totally lived up to my expectations. I watched it after the drama Bitter Blood, so I was really shocked to see Sato Takeru, I totally forgot he was the main actor. But a nice surprise I must say ;)
All in all a totally worth-watching movie!
