It can easily be said that Japan is one of the cellular capitols of the world, where people use their cellular phones not only as communication devices but also for a number of business and personal functions from text messaging and web browsing to paying bills online and watching streaming content.

With its tearful story of young love, loss and perseverance, it was an instant hit among readers particularly young, female high schoolers. However, much criticism also accompanied the novel particularly from those who saw its depictions of underage sex, rape and pregnancy as obscene.

Many also criticized the novels portrayal of cancer victims as not really realistic. Despite these criticisms, the novel was a best seller and widely read, spawning a couple of stories - "Kimi Zora" You, Sky which took the point of view from the side of "Koizora" character Hiro and "Another Koizora", a sequel of sorts. It was only time before the film adaptation of "Koizora" became a reality. Much of the film deals with the growing affections igh schoolers Tahara Mika Aragaki Yui and Sakurai "Hiro" Hiroki Miura Haruma have for each other and the troubles that transpire during the course of their relationship.

Their love story plays almost like a "Harlequin Romance" as Mika is at first scared and apprehensive of Hiro but soon begins to see the romantic and sensitive side behind his punk exterior. For instance, Hiro's former girlfriend, Saki Usuda Asami arranges to have Mika kidnapped and raped as a humiliation tactic against Hiro. While it does add drama to the story, it's a bit gratuitous and over-the-top in my opinion.

While many have criticized the physical relationship between these two characters Mika and Hiro are both around years old director Imai is very tasteful in not emphasizing or exploiting that aspect.

Even in the much criticized scene where Mika and Hiro make love in the school library, Imai thankfully leaves the details to one's imagination without going into too much salacious territory.

There are some aspects of the film that were a bit much. While the story takes place in Oita Prefecture in Kyushu, the high school seems to be almost too "hip" to be a school in the Japanese countryside. Also, both Mika and Hiro seem almost too perfect to be for real. They seem far more mature for high school sweethearts. Okinawa born model and actress Aragaki Yui plays the title character of Mika. Tall, cute and sweet, she is perfect as the main love interest.

Her charisma and charm radiates from the screen and one can't help but be captivated by her. His character is the atypical Japanese hero brash and carefree, strong but sensitive. With his bleached blonde hair and dark tan, it is little wonder why he captured Mika's heart. Koide Kesuke, who plays Fukuhara Yu rival lover to Hiro, is also very likable as the nice guy character who can't seem to compete with the "bad boy". It was nice to see veteran J-Dorama actress Asano Yuko again and she is perfect at Mika's understanding mother.

Kudos also go to cinematographer, Yamamoto Hideo whose wonderful shots of the Kyushu surroundings as well as the skies over Japan are breathtaking and grand. On the whole I was quite happy with "Koizora". It is weepy and sometimes overly dramatic movie at times but still a good enough film for couples in love. A good "chick flick" with a little bit of a bite and one that won't have male viewers bored to tears. Post on. November 29 , AM.

Koizora Series

This level of cultural penetration would make the work the mainstream media event of the 21st century — quite a feat for an amateurishly-written love story about gang rape, teen pregnancy, miscarriage, and premature cancer deaths. The cleaned-up book version sold in the millions, a manga version appeared, and the recent film adaptation debuted at 3 on the box office. Some wonder how this particular work found its way into the system so quickly when more popular keitai writers continue to be ignored , but just as in the Chad Vader model, Japanese companies are clearly using the internet as a testing ground for new talent. In other ways, however, Koizora is just another example of traditional Japanese diffusion patterns for pop culture.

Part of the reason to its popularity is because of Word of God claims it's biographical , and her anonymity makes the events of the story believable. This has been Retconned as being Very Loosely Based on a True Story , though there are rumors going on that it's Based on a Great Big Lie due its exaggerations and suspiciously strategic emotional appeal. Nevertheless, the success of Koizora led to a manga adaptation drawn by Ibuki Haneda, a theatrical film starring Yui Aragaki and Haruma Miura, and a television drama starring Erena Mizusawa and Koji Seto. Through a random encounter of phone calls, she meets Hiroki "Hiro" Sakurai, a delinquent boy who she is initially afraid of, and the two gradually fall in love.
