There comes a time in your life when you have to decide over something so painful.

The goofing days are finally over. Kasuga and Ayukawa are finally graduating from high school and they're moving on. This is Kimagure Orange Road without the out-of-this-world Power, over-acting Hatta and Komatsu, and crazy time-travels. What's left in this movie is raw human emotion. This is the ultimate conclusion to the Kasuga-Ayukawa-Hikaru love triangle.

Kasuga Kyosuke has to choose. I won't say who he chooses. But it's what the movie is all about.

Before you watch this, think first. If you want to remain happy with Kimagure Orange Road's TV series conclusion, read more

It's not often I see an anime movie based on a series that's really worthwhile. Most of the time the movie just feels very generic and dull compared to the series, like it's something they created for the sole purpose of making money. I've been disappointed by the One Piece movies, Bleach movies, Ranma movies... They had their cool points, but were overall pretty bland. This movie is not like those movies.

The animation wasn't really anything special; it was about the same quality as the series.

I really wasn't expecting an Ushiko-Umao reference in the movie. It's been a while since I watched the series, so read more

Recommendations

Anime: Maison Ikkoku
If you enjoyed this movie, which is essentially Kimagure Orange Road without the off-beat sci-fi elements, you will almost certainly enjoy Maison Ikkoku, also produced in the 80's which is in many ways the same type of story, told over a much longer timespan (96 episodes!) Despite the length, it's very much worth it!
