Yusuke Iseya as Miyata is incredibly silly in Honey and Clover. I loved it. The characters are also likeably your average teenagers trying to get through their youth dealing with love and heartbreak and life's diasppointments. But they encouage eachother not to give up and it has a postive outcome.
A quirky story about young love and youth in general accessible even to people who have not read the original manga (like myself). Going into this with no real knowledge of the characters I still enjoyed the general feeling of the movie, which includes the angst and typical characters you would find in a high school romance manga/anime. I really enjoyed the characters and the love story with first loves, overall a great cast.
"Honey & Clover" is a gentle look into the lives of 5 art school friends who struggle with love and identity. The film tends to focus most on Takemoto's (played by Sho Sakurai of "Kisarazu Cat's Eye" fame) new found love for the awkwardly beautiful Hagu (Yû Aoi). The supporting characters are likeable and there are pretty moments sprinkled throughout. The film ultimately suffers a bit from the transition from a long series (haven't seen the anime yet) into a short form film but, remains a sweet simple film otherwise.
