Review of Lovely Complex

Ok! For some reason I have a penchant for watching live action version of Anime and needless to say the results are usually disappointing in most cases. So far only Paradise Kiss and Kimi ni Todoke (From me to you) have been exceptions.

Lovely complex (the anime) is really hilarious and the Kansai dialect employed by the voice actors adds a genuine touch (not that I understand Japanese without subtitles). The love story between a mismatched pair and the hilarious situations they end up in leaves you wanting more. Definitely rewatchable.

The movie on the other hand suffers from a typical Japanese live action trait- in their quest to be kawaii (cute), the actors often end up over-acting in plenty of situations. This extra topping of cheese doesn't bode quite well with me. Comedy is best when humor is portrayed with just the right amount of acting. Maybe I need to be Japanese myself to appreciate it. While definitely watchable, I think this will definitely end up on my list of don't watch again.
