Lovely Complex: Live Action/ラブコン

Please Note: This is a movie not a series

Genre: Romance/Comedy
Language: Japanese

Risa Koizumi is a "beanstalk" or "giant" compared to the average Japanese girl, her height being 5' 6". Whereas Atsushi Otani is a "chibi" or "midget" compared to the average Japanese boy, being only 5' 1". Both have had their hearts broken because of discrimination against their height.
Will they be able to over come their insecurities, and find love?

Wow...this is the cheesiest of the cheesies. Over-the-top and cheesy describe this drama well. I remember reading the manga, way back when, via scanlations. It was cute as a manga, however the movie...well...It's funny, in a dumb sort of way. Once you hit the Kane-san/New teacher, with his "Yoroshi Queeeeenn" you start to realize the ridiculousness of it all.

Amusing perhaps, if not just from the "Yoroshi Queeeen" bit. However it seems very...2d, not very deep or interesting. Anyone else seen this classic? ;)
