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.

Story 8/10
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.

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

As I have completed the Anohana series, this movie is more or less like a retelling of the story and the chronological order of the developments of each character. Very well structured for a recap but this does not have what it takes to become a movie as you would expect something more or extra from it.

The movie takes place right after the events of the series in which the characters carry on with their lives but are reunited and their bonds slowly but surely repairing to become a lifelong friendship. This movie serves as a sort of clarification of what the characters used read more
