After the TV-series of Kimagure Orange Road, Kyosuke and Madoka have finally arrived at the point where they are close to graduation and have to decide where they want to go to college. Naturally, they want to go together, so beside all the studying they also have to look for a proper college where they can enter both.

Hikaru, still a year from graduating, wants to support Kyosuke as well and does that in her own way. But while she does that, Madoka feels jealous and tells her feelings to Kyosuke.

And then Kyosuke has to take action to finally decide on the girl he loves... thus concluding the story of the Kimagure Orange Road.

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

This is the first movie which could be called a spin-off because it's an original piece of work written by Kenji Tereda, the main scenario writer for the TV series rather than based off the original Manga.

It takes on a more serious tone during the summer when Kyousuke is preparing for university entrance exams. There's no mention of supernatural powers nor are any used, just your slice-of-life romance. Kyousuke's originally kind indecisive character is changed to be more cold and decisive so it's no longer a romcom and can be quite bitter which is probably why it was ill-received. Even Izumi Matsumoto criticised the work, read more

I'll be the contrarian here, and say that I actually really liked this movie. My main complaint with the TV series was how repetitive it got and how it felt more like "comedy, with like one or two bits of romance thrown in there randomly". This movie, on the other hand, felt more like "romance, with like one or two jokes thrown in there to make it a little less serious". This is probably my favorite part of the movie.

Maybe I'm committing heresy for saying this too, but I also really liked that this movie didn't focus on the side characters (the sisters, father, read more
