Storyline

Sometimes love is impossible. A girl and a boy from Hokkaido in Northern Japan fall in love and pledge eternal fealty to each other. Circumstances soon separate them geographically, but the two are no less in love and soldier on with one another. Soon, however, it becomes clear that loving someone is more than maintaining a linear path and abiding by one's promise. Well, at least it becomes clear to one of the two. Written by aghaemi

The Good And The Bad
10 December 2019 | by rjdv-00333See all my reviews

The Good: the ladies are super hot. The legs they flaunt and the short skirts they rock, coupled with the long feminine hair and super thin bodies are exquisite. No tattooed trash here! At one point there are six sets of legs making men happy on screen.

The Bad: soo many coincidental meetings. People run into each other all the time. They run into each other 2 parsacs away, at work, at restaurants, while shopping, heck they end up in each other's houses by accident.
