This is a cute film about two high school guys falling in love despite knowing what it could mean for them if people find out. I wasn't much of a fan of the use of the huge white space that took up a lot of the backgrounds of the shots in this. Maybe that was deliberately used to make the viewer focus on the characters and the moments that are happening between them which would make sense. Also, the use of the huge white spaces makes this feel very much like a dream and since the film is so short it helps make you feel almost like you could have just imagined this existing instead of it being an actual film because the story goes by in the blink of an eye. The way this makes use of the animation medium in high tension moments such as when Kusakabe floats over and smacks Hara-sen on the head as he's about to kiss Soja was great because it shows he did it in such a trance because he wanted to get his boyfriend back that he nonchalantly assaulted a teacher with no thought about it until after he was pulling Soja away was fantastic. These bitches gay, good for them
