Paradise Kiss

Synopsis: Yukari Hayasaka is a mediocre student who has worked her way to a top school just to make her mother proud. She always puts others first and herself last. However, her world is turned upside down when she crosses paths with a group of eccentric fashion design students. They know from the start she has the perfect look to model their design in their last school fashion show, but will she build up the courage to stand on her own two feet?
115 min

It was past the bakery

that always smelled so good..

...around the corner

at an exciting accessories shop...

...and down, down, down...

...a dangerous-looking alley.

A place hidden away,

probably once a bar.

They called it their 'studio.'

These marks won't get you in.

You'll have to take a study year,

or more, and try the exams again.

At this rate your friends

will graduate before you even start.

What's wrong?

Why won't you concentrate?

Life's not a game, Hayasaka.

I know it isn't, you old bald jerk!

Change your jersey sometimes!

I took my first entrance exam

when I was five...

...for a famous universitys

primary school

But in life? first great test

I failed miserably.

It wasn't failing that bothered me,

it was my mother.

I thought she might abandon

her Mat daughter.

So from that day on,

I studied harder than anyone.

Ms. Hayasaka...

That is correct.

All right, what about the next one?

Let's see...

Ms. Hayasaka?

I got my own back by qualifying

for one of the top high schools.

But my little brother,

who was much smarter than me...

was taking exams by then.

My mother focused an him.

It was as if I'd been set free.

Nope, no girlfriend.

That's Tokumori.

He's so cute!

He was my first love.

But far three years that first love...

...bore the title 'unrequited'


You OK?

Yes. Thank you.


See ya.

Back in a minute.

What are you doing?

Nothing! Trying out my new phone.

Take us both, then.


If you like.

Hey, honey!

Hey! Hey, you!

Hey! Aw, come on!

Go hit on someone else.

I'm busy.

Excuse me.

I'm in a hurry.

Five minutes!

I'm busy!

Three minutes! Two! One!





No! I'm getting robbed!


What are you doing?!

I didn't want her outrunning me.


Now what?

What's wrong?


I've been lying awake nights

worrying about exams.

Let's take her to the studio.


Man, this girl's heavy!

Get her legs.

Nice legs!

A new way of life

suddenly opened out before me.

My monkey palanquin

turned at a sweet-smelling bakery..

Are you OK?

You're awake!

I'm Miwako Sakurada.

We would've called a doctor,

but you were talking in your sleep...

...about a monkey.

Where am I?

In our studio.


We make clothes here.

We're from

the Yazawa Academy of Arts.


You've heard of it? Great!

See? Our school's famous.

Famous for taking in idiots.

Who hit on people from other schools.

I was scouting, not hitting.

Next month we're having

our graduation fashion show.

It's the last school festival

for us third-year students.

We're looking for a runway model

to wear what we've made.

Me? A model?

You've got to be kidding!

I've got entrance exams.

I don't have time for games

with the likes of you.

I'm going.

Wait, Caroline!

You mean me?

You haven't told us your name.

And I don't intend to.

Thanks for the nursing.

Wait a minute.

Now what?

This isn't a game to us.

Take that back.

Say you're sorry

but you haven't got time.


You go to Seiei.

So you can give us attitude?

Take it back.

Who's this?


Arashi scouted her.


For our model?

She looked perfect,

but she's an idiot!

Something smells good.

It's not for you, it was for her.

'Stamina stew'.

I guess it'll be my dinner now.

You won't let me eat

what you made for her?

Just like your dress.




...have you ever met someone

who was 'scary'?

Right from the start... thought,

'This person scares me.

'If this person's around,

he'll wreck my life.'

Right when I me! him,

I had that feeling.

One of those people

you never know what they'll do.

I came to say sorry.

I heard how my friend

chased you, and you fainted...

...and then he got mad at you.

I think we need to apologize.

What's your name?

Yukari Hayasaka!


Your boyfriend?

No, Tokumori, he's not!



Get lost!


Don't call me that!

Let's go.

Hey, wait!

I'm going to be raped

and dumped somewhere!

Stop moaning.


You got in.

I wasn't thinking.

Where are you taking me?

Where we can do it.

No! He's going to do it

and do it and do it and do it!

George, that's a visitor's spot.

They'll get mad at you again.

But this is the best place to park.

That's why.

Come on, Yukari.

So this is Yazademy?

No bra, no panties!

At school?!


What are you doing here?

Our apology. Is Seiji here?


Thank you.

Hi, Mr. Kisaragi.

He's a teacher?!

Looking like that?

Doesn't anyone dress for school here?

We've just met and she's angry?

I need a favor.

For George Koizumi?

I'm honored you'd ask.

Can you fix this girl's hair?

My hair?

He's a special instructor here.

He's a hair and make-up artist.

He works abroad, too.

I get it! You brought her

for a hairstyle makeover.


A 'sorry' haircut.

That doesn't make sense!

The fashion show audience

grades us.

Even with a good dress...

...a drab model loses marks.

I don't want to lose

because you look like a frump.

I said I'm not going to model!

You don't know who you are.

Last week it was red!

So maybe not?

It was better the first way.

You I don't need now.

What's wrong? it's not going well?

No. We're starting all over

from the basic design.

You rush things.

You want a fight? I'm ready.

They've been rivals

since they started here.

The genius versus hard worker.

They're both designers.

And that's the model

for Kaori's team.


Yukari! You skipped out for that?

Was that guy a hair stylist?

It looks like a wig.

Shut up. it's fine.

That's a surprise.

It suits you.

It's pretty.


What happened to your hair?

If you've got that much time...

...I hope you're studying.

I am.

What's that?

Who is it?

It's a guy, right?

Sure it is.

'Yukari Hayasaka'!

I already know that, thank you.

I'm sorry, Carrie.

George insisted I bring you again.

They're idiots,

every last one of them!

Where are they?


Oh, I'm sorry.

Hey, that's cute!

We're not making pajamas,



It sure helps

to have the model here.

Look, you've been treating me

as your model since yesterday...

...but I haven't said I'd do it.

But you're here.

Then say you will, already.

Or is it beneath your dignity?

That's nice. A sunflower?

Too out there?

No. It fits her image perfectly.

Yeah, now...



Isabella, say something!


Not helping!

You're always changing it!

More work!

That's hot!


it's Caroline's image exactly!

She still hasn't said

she'll do it, you know.

Well, we can't push any more.

But I think she'd be great.

You've brought in non-students

two days in a row!

Is this a meeting-up place?

Why do I get blamed for this?

Now I see.

That's why your marks

are going down.

Watch who you hang out with.

Real friends don't try to get you

to skip school at a time like this.

You don't know who you are.

A bunch like that

is not a good fit for you.

Surely you're used to
