Despite being released in 2015, the film has an old-school feel with most of it set in the 80's. The fashion and the music will have you feeling like you've been transported back into the hippy era of Japan.
The overarching story has all the elements of your typical romance story, a first love, a dorky guy and pretty girl. But certain moments will remind you this is a Japanese film, like certain effects and reactions that are almost cartoon-like.
Why not also make it into a whole night of Japanese culture? We dropped by the sushi train at Melbourne Central for a quick serve of sushi and the next film I'm going to see will be preceded by slurping a bowl of ramen.
