Comments: This is the closest the Japanese may get to a krom kom, even though it moves at a snail's pace comparatively, and it's with kids. Mirei Kiritani brings energy to the 4th wall breaking princess who wants the stud who likes the delicately bullied girl. Wait! Didn't I already see this? Kiritani's character and Ryuichi Hiroki money shot from the aforementioned From Me to You got her this starring role. She delivers exaggerated shouting and other visually enhanced physical humor. She even reprises her "This cute girl won't appear before you again" line! I think zelena might barf minor approval.

I looked to see what else I might have with Mirei Kiritani. She was the only thing I liked about I Have to Buy New Shoes Atarashii kutsu wo kawanakucha (2012). She was the sister of the guy who hogged the film with his unbelievable relationship. To my chagrin, she was the reason I punted on Ryuichi Hiroki's Crying 100 Times - Every Raindrop Falls 100-kai nakukoto (2013). Maybe I'll revisit that one and wait for the money shot.

Summary: Hatori Matsuzaki (Mirei Kiritani) is a female high school student. She has a crush on her childhood friend Rita Terasaka (Kento Yamazaki) and believes he will eventually choose her as her heroine, but Rita Terasaka begins dating Miho Adachi. Meanwhile, the most popular male student, Kosuke Hiromitsu (Kentaro Sakaguchi) takes an interest in Hatori Matsuzaki.
