Watch #03: Flying Colors (ビリギャル)



Flying Colors is not a sad movie but I found myself sniffling back tears while watching it. I could draw many parallels with the Sayaka's struggles and those secondary school days where parental pressure, tuition you attend to please the parents and the immense pressure cooker style of the Asian education system with their intense emphasis on exam results brought back bittersweet nostalgia. 
But the saving grace is both the immeasureable joy of friends and especially teachers who believe in you and with that faith, change your life.
