Featured reviews for

Last Quarter
LoveHKfilm, by Kozo source: http://www.lovehkfilm.com/panasia/last_quarter.htm
«Last Quarter could be good enough for fans of the manga, and even those who enjoy the glossy over-the-top melodrama of shojo anime may be charmed. But the film doesn't really capitalize on its status as a live action film, and might as well have been an anime instead. The whole is a little too staged, a little too manufactured, and a little too "beautiful" to really affect. The actors may be alive, but Last Quarter is oddly lifeless.»
....Gravity...., by Jenny source: http://jenscorpiox.blogspot.com/2007/06/kagen-no-tsuki-2004-starring-chiaki.html
«‘Kagen no Tsuki’ would have been more enjoyable if the scenes were tightened, the screenplay were rewritten to better match the manga, more focus were given on the details in the middle, and better child actors were hired. My verdict? The manga was exciting and touching while the movie bored me to death.»
Differences between the manga and movie, by [email protected] source: http://its-art.livejournal.com/257701.html
«# The biggest difference, in the manga Hotaru is assisted by three friends: Masaki, Sae and Tetsu. In the movie, this is cut down to just Masaki (and later Tomoki).

# In the manga, Adam is English. He has blonde hair and blue eyes. He speaks Japanese because Sayaka did. In the movie, Adam is a London-born half-Japanese man (I suppose so they could fit HYDE into the role).»
