It's been several years and Kyosuke Kasuga is now 19. A mysterious phone call warns him of oncoming cars but he doesn't listen. Ironically, he gets hit by a car and because of his telepathic abilities, gets sent three years into the future. His 22 year old future self is now a photographer who is lost in Bosnia and believed to be dead. Kyosuke must find his 22 year old future self and restore himself, the 19 year old, to his correct time. Along the way he reunites with Hikaru who is now a professional and famous dancer. Madoka is also there, distraught over both Kyosuke, the 22 year old, going missing in Bosnia and Kyosuke, the 19 year old, getting hit by a car.

Short review without spoil
Orange road was one of my fav show when I was young.
I gave a super nice 9 only because it's the fan service episode I wanted !

I watched orange road when I was 15y and this final at 46y so of course it bring me back so many memory from this time and it was a key age ; first love etc etc ot gave me this weird feeling of time fly and identification with main character 30 years later still working.
This OAV gave me a super strong life emotion and I don't think it will happen ...

It continues to show how he envisioned the characters from the original Manga, now nineteen, would have moved on with their lives through university. If you watched the first movie, you might feel better for the characters after watching this. Maybe it was Tereda's way of ...

This movie ties up the loose ends left by the previous one. Unfortunately, there's no Ushiko-Umao reference in this one. The story's pretty interesting since it's got time travel and inevitable time paradoxes, though. We get a little info on the lives of the main characters after the events of the first movie, then we also learn about how things are for them three years later. I think this stuff would be particularly appreciated by fans of the series since it gives you that sense of closure.
One character from the OVAs appears in the movie, so you may want to watch the OVAs first ...
