About Lovely Complex The Movie:
Risa is just too tall and too intimidating for the boys at her school to like her. She longs for the attention of a boy. Atsushi is just too short for a girl to be interested in him. Despite the difference in height, the two share everything from their taste in food to their favorite band and become the best of friends. Can they overcome the inches that separate them and become the perfect couple everyone says they will be? Based on the comic book “Lovely Complex” by Aya Nakahara, Love*Com is a story about two friends who slowly come to realize they are perfect for each other, despite a difference in stature. 60Minutes Lovely Complex The Movie will be shown in Japanese with English Subtitles.
This event is free and open to the public. Reservations are required.
