Asian Movies - High School Debut

I recently came across this movie while I was bored and hanging out at youtube. At first I thought it was a JDrama since it was chopped up into pieces. After a first few parts I figured out it was actually a movie.
High school Debut very much reminded me of Nobuta wo Produce JDrama. It was the first thought that came to mind when I saw Haruna beg You to be her teacher. Watching her make a fool out of herself all the time was kinda fun, but it was also refreshing watching a person be herself without any guilt. I guess after all the trouble of trying to adapt her to the society, You realized that she's perfect just the way she is. It was really nice watching a love story unfold in such a short time, since it is a movie and not a JDrama, they did an excellent job of fitting everything in this movie in a perfect way.
If you like to watch school-love themed Asian movies/Dramas you will most certainly love this one. I highly recommend it!

Haruna Nagashima (Ito Ono) devoted herself to softball while in middle school. Now that she is in high school, Haruna believes its time find a boyfriend. Unfortunately for Haruna, she didn't pay attention to trends and is now clueless on how to attract a boy. Through a fortuitous event, Haruna encounters popular upperclassman You Komiyama (Junpei Mizobata) Haruna asks You to teach her how to become attractive to boys. You agrees but with one catch. She can't fall in love with him...
