Tsutomu, a dreamer, joined a team of poetical boxers by chance. They are first pitted against a team from a nearby girls’ high school. He is attracted to a girl there who never seems to speak.

  • Review

    After graduation, Tsutomu Tamaki works at his father’s farm, but he’s unhappy about the boring life. Tsutomu, a daydreamer, accidently joins a team which battles poetry as in a rap battle. This diverse group is about to compete against Poetry Angel team from nearby female high school. While sharing their life secrets to write poetry, Tsutomu falls for a high-school girl who doesn’t seem to talk at all. Poetry Angel is a unique comedy. It is a bit puzzling due to the unfamiliar topic and plots in the beginning, but it soon captures us with its friendly charm. It’s because it depicts the mysterious magic of writing poems and of expressing one’s feeling concisely. The popular topic of ‘lack of communication’ is powerfully delivered with a unique sense of humor. [KIM Youngjin]
