fantasy historical romance


One rainy day, Akane crosses path with a kind young man who tacitly offers to her his coat. On their second encounter, he confesses that he has no recollection of who he is, his name or his past, but feels contented by just being with her. Besotted, Akane sets out to find his name, and to unravel his enigmatic connection with a famous cursed dance rumoured to kill anyone who attempts to perform it.

This movie can be seen as a long episode from the hachiyo shou TV series. It follows the general plot of an arc or episode in the TV series: some enemy appear, they find out about the enemy, and they defeat it.

However, I liked this movie much better than the series. In my opinion, the Hachiyou Shou TV series was rather average, there was some good moments but overall there was nothing special. Too cliche, too shoujo, not enough character depth, predictable plot devices etc.

The movie can be watched as a stand alone movie (would still make sense), but since it follows the TV read more

Having enjoyed the series, I had looked forward to watching this. Unfortunately, though being a fan of this series, I found this ova truly disappointing.

The plot was plain and frankly there is nothing much to write about. And while it is uncomplicated and easy to understand, it doesn't captivate the audience.

Probably the only salvageable part of this ova. Peppered with bishounens (pretty boys), there is a depth of research of the traditional japanese living ways seen in its art.

The soundtrack is pleasant to ears, however while it tries hard to capture the mood of the ova, it fails short in read more

To start things off: I'm not a fan of the Haruka Naru Toki no Naka De(Hachiyoushou) series.. I thought it was everywhere and going nowhere in particular, with more plot holes than I could count.

In comes Maihitoyo... a beautiful, well written, well paced and amazing story that puts the rest of the series to shame by light years. However, the movie borrows from the rest of the series, so a viewer should consider watching the series before the movie. Standalone, this movie provided me with an original character who will go in my favorite characters list.

The Good:
As opinions go, Akane is not a character read more

Both anime are:
* Movie
* Begining of the romance in a rainy day
* Both characters don't know each other before they met in a rainy day
* Beautiful romance
* The endings are similars
* Kotonoha... is set in our time while Harukanaru... is set in a past era
* Kotonoha... could be true 'cos has real ambience while Harukanaru... has a bit of fantasy

Both are about spirits and beautiful romance. In both anime the girl falls in love with a spirit, Harukanaru although the movie is longer, the romance is deeper with beautiful graphics and plot. Hotarubi has drama just like Harukanaru, where you will shed tears.
The differences are that in Harukanaru there are more characters involving around the female protagonist while in Hotarubi there are little minor characters

Both are in the same era and are about romance, although Genji is more slow and mature, HarukaToki Maihitoyo is greater.

If you like Fushigi Yuugi watch Harukanaru Toki no Naka de ~Maihitoyo~ it basically has the same concept, a girl from another world arrives and becomes the priestess of that land. Unlike Fushigi Yuugi, it doesn't have the "mushy" stuff although you might like the handsome guys! This is actually the movie for its TV series; "Harukanaru Toki no Naka de ~Hachiyou Shou~. Better watch the TV series first before watching this movie.

This is one of the anime movies that made me cry, so I really recommend you guys to watch this!
