Cute little movie
11 June 2018 | by info-5918See all my reviews

Not a bad little Japanese sports slice of life movie. The film centres around the main character, Asahi, who joins her schools Naginata club, and goes in school competition. For those interested in Japanese martial arts, or Japanese culture. Not an incredible movie, but fun none the less.
