Comments: Hiroki's just throwing stuff at the wall with these pure love things. At least he lights them well. I love Ryuichi Hiroki and will watch almost anything he does, to see what sticks. But there is no point to this one, except Fumi Nikaidô! It's awesome watching someone at her skill level take a cringe-worthily scripted scene and own it. Most girls who play these roles do it with a sweet, hilarious, melodrama. Fumi Nikaidô! brings authentic vulnerability to the proceedings.

Fumi plays the girl who can't get a boy even though she's more beautiful, smart, and sweet than most. She wants to fit in with the girls who have BFs so she makes a deal with super-stud of the school brickhead, ie. young Japanese man with terracotta colored hair: she will be his dog if he pretends to be her BF. He treats her like a dog for ninety minutes and everything ends well. So, it's gross. The boy/girl stereotypes are Creepy. But Fumi Nikaidô!

It's a shame that a director who is so capable of making a film shine around a strong female lead didn't aim higher than this when he had someone of the caliber of Fumi Nikaidô!. She shines, but there's too much big whoop surrounding her. I hope Ryuichi Hiroki and Fumi Nikaidô! work together again on something more mature.

Summary: Erika Shinohara (Fumi Nikaido) is a first year of high school student. While talking to friends, she makes up a story about her "boyfriend." In reality, Erika Shinohara doesn't have a boyfriend. Erika's friends soon begin to doubt her story and Erika is also running out of lies. Erika then sees a pretty boy on the street and takes his picture discreetly. She later shows his picture to her friends as her boyfriend. The boy in the picture is Kyouya Sata (Kento Yamazaki) and happens to attend the same school as Erika. She tells Kyouya about her situation and asks him to be her pretend boyfriend. Even though Kyouya has a pretty appearance, he has a dark side.
