Tsubaki Hibino (Emi Takei) is a young teenage girl with a talent for styling other people's hair. Yet, Tsubaki suffers from low self-esteem and isn't very comfortable styling her own hair. She also has a tendency to dress old-fashioned. She's teased at high school because of this.

kj Omg i just finished watching this an like i wanna watch it again like omg sooo good

Krish This is the only Japanese movie I watched. I watched this on the airplane when we went to Japan. It was one of the best!

Hwa Just finished watching this movie.. afsda so cute and funny! I really liked it..

anon OMG!! This movie is the besttttt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This movie totally "compensate" for the lack of interactions of emi and tori in asuko march ^^ If u watch asuko march u will noe what i mean ..hehehe... LOVE this couple soooo muchhh!

sniper I watched this and I say, they should have cast a lead actor like Miura Shohei or Miura Haruma or Mizobata Junpei or Kakku Kento. They are more hearthrob looking than Matsuzaka Tori. Tori is boring.

Adina Love the movie very much. Was looking through the popular movies on gooddrama.net and saw this. The pic looked good so I just went for it without reading the plot. Turned out, it was a great movie. Though it was better if it was a drama, but the movie still seems as a success. Thumbs up for all who was involved. Recommended if you want cute high school love story. Not innocent and light but still, it was pretty cool.

megiii the movie will be released on dvd 24.05.2013 do we have to wait a little

Tokyo Jim Saw this on a United Airlines flight from TLV to EWR. I had low expectations given the subject matter, but I was wrong. It was so well done and I was really impressed with how the story was handled, the acting, etc.

In fact, I watched three Japanese (and one Korean) movie on the flight and thought how ironic that there is probably nowhere in the U.S. to see these movies with English subtitles, but you can if you take a flight on an American airline.

Arata Anyone know where i can watch this? I love tori and emi together <3 their chemistry in asuko march was amazing!!

acmiyus i really wanna watch this movie so badly.....!!!!! just finished watching Asuko march...totally ship this couple!!!!!

titin What a movie. I like this movie so much, best ,movie based of comic story... I will love to watch it again. Wish there will be so many other movie best on romantic comic like faster than a kiss or kaichou wa maid sama could be film and be as good as this one.

Jessica okay this is my FAVORITE manga of all time so it better be good. I REALLY WANT TO WATCH THIS MOVIE. LIKE... NOW!!!

Rose Good manga! I believe movie will hit too! Highly recommended!

Ciela I went to watch the movie last week... meh it was ok. I didn't really love it (there wasn't any scene that made squeal >_<; made i've just read too much shoujo manga that im becoming immune -__-), but its not like it completely sucks either. I was impressed though that they where able to fit so much content in those 120 min. and it didn't feel rushed.

Rei Emi Takei becomes more gorgeous in every show she's in! good for you girl!

Pancakemushroom Reading the manga atm.. Sooo good! Can't wait to watch the movie.. Emi Takei and Matsuzaka Tori look so cute together! I really hope the movie's good

)

Yuzuki Aren't they overdoing everything with Takei Emi?

Plus, this is her third work with Matsuzaka Tori... they're really pushing these two together. ._. There was the dramas, GOLD and Asuko March!... :|

I think they're both great actors though, so it'll be good (better be!). :)

lambo nyaa why came the trailer so quickly ?! i want to watch it now >< about the cast i think they look really good together and their appearance are like the characters but i don't know how good they acting their roles. tsubaki is a really cute girl and kyota is like a perfect boyfriend. i think it will be difficult to play it.

Hang Van OMG they finally will do this famous shoujo. It is hard since it belongs to smut shoujo. I question how the PD will create it,,,, lol. Should it be a hit like Paradise Kiss or just a disappointment like Koukou Debut nee~? Anyway, I am eager to see how the work of those new actors come out.

Rei they should stop picking takei for almost everything. she's in samurai x already and then she's here as tsubaki. what I'm trying to say is, there are lots of better options than her for tsubaki. this is my favorite manga but for me, her acting is not maximum or enough to make me go "wow she's awesome". so yeah, they should stop casting models, really. /shrug

Ayu Emi Takei in another one of my most favorite manga adapted to movie!! >< Can't wait to watch this!!!
