Good Enough
8 May 2019 | by pennyelenabooksSee all my reviews

We Hope for A Blooming is not the best shoujo movie out there. Still, it was cute.

I liked how they didn't focus on the romance too much, but on the character development of the main character, the friendship of the boys and the girl and the basketball games. However, it would have been better if they had explored her realtionship with her old best friend more in depth, as it felt superficial and it didn't help develop the strong emotions that the story required.

The couple, also, had chemistry and they looked cute together. However, the love triangle was weak. Finally the performances were good.

So, six out of ten.
