Defying Kurosaki-kun (黒崎くんの言いなりになんてならない, Kurosaki-kun no Iinari ni Nante Naranai) is a Japanese romantic comedy shōjo manga series written and illustrated by Makino.[1] It is published by Kodansha since 2014, with serialization on Bessatsu Friend.[2] It was adapted into a Japanese television drama mini-series in December 2015.[2] A live action film adaptation was released on February 27, 2016.[3]

Kurosaki is nicknamed "Kuro Akuma" (Black Devil) and is feared by his peers. He demands Yu's "absolute obedience." On the other hand, Takumi, Kurosaki's best friend, is adored by girls and is called "Shiro Oji" (White Prince). He is very warm and kind to Yu. The two boys treat Yu in opposite ways. Kurosaki is arrogant, using such ploys as "kabe-don" (putting both hands on the wall around a girl) and "ago-kui" (tilting a girl's chin up with a finger). By contrast, Takumi goes for more chivalrous gestures like gently holding her hand or giving her a hug from behind. The highlight of the film is a basketball game between Takumi and Kurosaki over Yu. Grabbing Kurosaki's collar, Takumi says, "You'll never beat me." As Takumi wildly chases and steals the ball from Kurosaki, his hidden passion comes out. The film tells the story of a love triangle, and, as Chiba said, it also carefully depicts how the two boys become closer to each other.

Characters[edit]

He is called the Black Prince since his hair was cut but Yuu still calls him Black Demon. Even though he shows a bad expression, it is stated by Takumi that he is really kind. In the movie, after he ended his contract with Yu, he didn't show much expression but it is obvious that he doesn't want it to end. He stated that the only person he could never beat is Takumi. In the manga, it is still not clear what he felt about Yuu.

She was bullied in her middle school years, thus resulting her to change. After being kissed by Haruto, she has become obedient to him. Unaware that she was already falling for him, she only remembers the bad things he made her do. At the end of the film, they kissed and became a couple. In the Manga, it was revealed that she has feelings for Haruto

He is called the White Prince because of his good attitude. When he found out that Haruto is interested in Yuu, he treats her as a game but falls in love with her. He tells Haruto if Haruto and Yuu becomes a couple, they won't be friends anymore. In the manga, Yuu called him a White Demon when she found out about him using her as a game.

He is a big fan of Haruto and is willing to do everything to please him. He stated that if he was a girl, he will fall in love with Haruto.

Meiko is Yuu's best friend. She is in love with Haruto ever since he saved her from the pool. When she found out that Yuu has feelings for him, She didn't want their friendship to be destroyed
