This movie was a mess. There were lots of good things about it (mostly Kanna) but the eponymous "love story" was just really bad. It wasn't even a love story, it was just the story of how the two confessed to each other. Which is always the WORST. Tamako loving the guy isn't sold to any reasonable extent. Why does she "love" him? Because he was at her mom's funeral? Because he's always been around? They don't even have any scenes together in the film, which could have worked if their "romance" was sold in other ways, but it wasn't. It's mostly just Tamako sitting around and thinking about shit while other arbitrary events happen around her.

Tamako's situation in the film boils down to this: Her whole character is about wanting to maintain the status quo, she wants to hold onto the life that she knows forever because she loves it so much and the last time something changed significantly was when her mother died. Suddenly her world starts to change around her, guy confesses to her which threatens her way of life. Now she has two options, tell him she loves him and he'll stay, or reject him and he'll go off to school. She basically spends the whole movie in denial, wishing that none of this were happening at all, and then at the end tells him she loves him because she thinks he's leaving.

There's no romance there. How about some dialog between these two characters establishing that they have some kind of intimate connection to each other? How about scenes showing how they're actually important to each other? Her reason for loving him amounts to "he's always been around." Also the end was totally anti-climactic. A rare directorial miss for kyoani.

Nips can't into romance. The last great anime romance was Kare Kano, TLS isn't even in the same league.

Did.... did you just watch the movie without even being aware that a series existed?

Kare Kano is garbage. Even TRDR is better than that shit.

Do remember the scene of Mochizou chearing Tamako up after her mom died? That was when Tamako became obsessed with Mochi, and Mochizou naturally became an extension of that. She feels safe and secure around him, and that's why she loved him.
>Now she has two options, tell him she loves him and he'll stay, or reject him and he'll go off to school.
No, she's just confused on what to do because she feels like Mochizou is leaving and things are changing too fast for her to cope. Her walk through the market in the morning allowed to come to terms with change since while some things do change, some things will stay the same.

The confession scene at the end is Tamako propelling her own change instead of resisting it as she's always done. It's my favorite anime ending because it's such a hype moment. I do agree though that it isn't much of a love story, and I argue that Tamako learning to deal with change after her mother's death is the heart and soul of the entire series.
