I'm going to try and keep this as short as possible. By now you have already watched the first season and understand what the plot is, but this short series runs the "What if" situation, where Haruka gets a second chance at Takayuki. After that, everything just falls into place. For once the predictable feel of the anime is welcomed and fits perfectly. It serves for those audience members who wanted them to get back together.

Over all 10/10, still really sad though.

Kimi ga Nozomu Eien ~Next Season~ is an alternate re-telling of the original KimiNozo, or Rumbling Hearts in English. Rather than choosing Mitsuki, like in the original, this 4 episode OVA follows the story where Takeyuki chooses to follow Haruka instead.

STORY
I can't say I loved the original storyline very much, but at least there were tear jerking moments, and very good drama scenes. In this re-telling, we see hardly exciting "drama", nor a real story to begin with. Almost like it's dragging out the storyline to last 4 episodes. I wouldn't say more as the storyline is so thin, any mention of anything would probably read more

With the time that was taken to conceive and release this short OVA... I was expecting a lot. It was with great disappointment that the spin-off of Kimi ga Nozomu Eien aka Rumbling Hearts turned out to be a poor crafted and rushed piece.

The story was kept neatly, and that was its greatest point as spin-off. Taking some scenes from the original series as retrospective, it gave a very consistent view of the whole plot. More than the current relationship between the characters it briefly explained their past and their reasons. The story could be taken from a soap-opera, but unlike most anime it has read more

I must say I really hated the ending of the original series.. but that is just my selfishness talking.
I was happy when I saw this version of the story which has a better end , happy people, caring people, loving people.

The original had more dramatic scenes that sometimes made you cry which I is why I appreciate it
but this is very well made as well.

You can tell the difference in these endings because of the feelings expressed in them. It is always good to see such hardships in life because they remind you of what is important in your life and how you read more
