I'm a big fan of the Ano Hana series, and rate it in my top 2 most tear jerking anime. When I heard that a movie was coming out, which was a gonna be a recap from a different perspective, I was a little apprehensive to say the least, whether or not they would be able to come anywhere close to how good the series was. Let me tell you I wasn't disappointed. Without further adieu let me start the review.

Now this movie isn't flawless, but none the less very enjoyable. To give you a summary, it basically revisits the major events of the read more

I watched this movie when it premiered in downtown LA and I didn't really know what to expect. I had just finished the series which was great timing and the quality of the series gave me high expectations for the movie. However the movie basically just retold the story of the series and added in a few extra scenes. The most entertaining part of the movie was the actual "letters to Menma" scenes. Where all the characters are thinking of what to write. These scenes really reveal the feelings that they didn't communicate in the series, and tells what and how much they've changed since read more

AnoHana: Letters to Menma follows in the tradition of countless other anime movies before it - that is, it functions mostly as a recap of the original series with some new scenes sprinkled throughout.

If you've seen the original anime (and if you haven't go watch it right now before you read this review), then you're familiar with the story and it's resolution, so I'll spare the summary. The actual movie itself takes place roughly a year after Menma's wish has been granted, and catches up with the rest of the Super Peace Busters as they gather together to write their own letters to Menma, sharing read more

This review doesn't have any spoilers, nor an outline of the TV Series' plot. This serves as a guide on what will you expect on watching the movie itself.

It is advised for you to watch the TV Series in order to fully understand what happened on the past events, but this movie sums all important events and packed it up in a 100-minute movie.

Basically AnoHana Movie is a sequel to the TV Series. It sets year after the events of AnoHana, but they recalled most of its events. The main character's have each of their own monologues, and most of their feelings and expressions, read more

Anime: Hotarubi no Mori e
Both series are very similar. Both have main character that found themselves a spirit/ghost. They also face lots of common themes, such as impossible love between human and spirit. Heartbreaking romantic series, I must say. It's a must-watch movie, though.

Anime: Hal
Two stories about a certain person dealing with the lost of their love. While AnoHana focus on a group of friends, Hal focus in just a couple. Heart breaking scenes where main characters just seems to have lost the will to live. Both shows have a stunning animation, with a beautiful and touching OST. A must watch for persons who enjoy angst.
