Format: DVD
Risa Koizumi is too tall for a girl. Atsushi Otani is too short for a boy. You know the rest. Hijinks ensue.

Well, OK, it may not actually be that simple, but that is pretty much the gist of Love*Com (Which is a shortened form of "Lovely Complex", which doesn't have any real meaning besides being bad Japanese-English). Based on a popular shojo manga, this is just a light and fluffy formula-romance comedy pairing two oddballs who are perfect only for each other. The film follows the style of the manga, with sudden flights of anime-inspired fantasy interspersed with reality, and that is its saving grace, and where most of the charm comes in.

Formula films depend a lot on the abilities of their actors to save the day, and the cast of "Love*Com" does OK. Most of them, including the leads, are pretty much inexperienced as actors, but that doesn't hurt them too much. Model Ema Fujisawa playing Risa is cute in an odd sort of way, and fits the role perfectly. Teppei Koike, a singer and "idol" is a little too cool as Atsushi, and it is hard to buy that he has a hard time finding a girlfriend. The film is absolutely peppered with cameos by popular Japanese comedians, but that probably won't mean much to too many Americans. Shizuyo Yamazaki (Sayuri from "Hula Girls") is funny as Risa's older sister, a giant girl in her own right but who managed to hook herself a man.

The films keeps up a good pace, but then fizzles near the end. A problem with some manga adaptations, they tried to fit too much of the popular story in, and just when things should have been coming to their happy conclusion, a new rival steps in and the film drags.

Definitely a movie that is cute and fluffy and fun, without much substance. To note is the cast full of rising stars, such as the two main characters. Koike Teppei has appeared in many dramas before, but it is Love Com that brings him to the big screen attention of international anime fans who don't watch Japanese dramas. Also in the film is Mizushima Hiro in one of his first roles in a film, and he's one to watch out for too, though neither boy gets anything particularly out of the formulaic character acting.

This is not a hard movie to make, but somehow the director drags it out too long with too many subplots--I feel like the rival situation at the end was just unnecessary as we all know what will happen in the end anyway. Still though, the entire movie is pretty funny, and worth a couple of hours of your time for a few laughs.

I have never read the anime that this live action movie is based on since I'm not a huge anime fan but I tend to like these live action movies based on anime (death note is another one). I can't speak for the accuracy or similarities because of that. I also have a dvd with NO subtitles and have no idea what the characters are saying. Yet I still LOVED this movie. It was a complete visual experience. It's so colorful and fun. Everything from what they eat (ice cream or drinks) to the main character's awesome room - is so pretty and colorful...I can't stress it enough. Ema Fujisawa (that main girl) is also impossibly adorable. The gist of the movie is the tall girl and short guy end up falling in love...that's all you really need to know about the story in my opinion.

I thought this movie was hilarious, colorful, and cute.

I've seen the anime and had a lot of fun with that. The movie did attempt to fit a bit much, especially as it added a couple new elements (which weren't too bad), like the teacher trying out new wigs in the hope that his students wouldn't be able to tell he was wearing a wig. ...
It spent too much time on 'Mighty'-sensei and the basketball scene, but when I realized I couldn't take anymore 'let's go Mighty' it stopped.

Anyhow, the story line isn't anything special: tall girl (Risa) & short boy (Ootani) get along really well, but as both have pledged never to go out with anyone shorter/taller, and everyone calls them the comedy duo, they don't consider going out. Well, until they do. Girl goes after boy, switch, boy goes after girl, etc.

Despite the rather ordinary plot, the execution was brilliant. Little anime elements crept in, as when Risa realizes she likes Ootani, and little stars surround him. The actress who portrayed Risa was really cute, and managed the expressions surprisingly well. Her hair is even done the same (as in the anime).

I found it a lot of fun to watch, as did the other girls I was with. I have a feeling guys wouldn't enjoy it as much, but who knows.
I liked the colors, Risa's stubbornness, the playful atmosphere, and the Osakan dialect. I also thought it was charming how the narrator spoke in English (though I had to read the Japanese subtitles to understand part of what he was saying).
All in all, worth watching. I'm sure I'll watch it again, too.

Look, we all know even the anime was a little over the top, along with the manga, and I think the movie perfectly grasped the goofy, very cute sides of the story. It was ridiculous fun, I couldn't help laughing aloud the entire time. Koizumi and Otani are adorable, along with their little quarrel for love. I reccomend it, its a great picker upper :)
