Six months ago, Sakuta Azusagawa had a chance encounter with a bunny girl in a library. Ever since then, he's been blissfully happy with his girlfriend: Mai Sakurajima, that same bunny girl. However, the reappearance of his mysterious first crush, the now-adult Shouko Makinohara, adds a new complication to his relationship with Mai. To make matters worse, he then encounters a middle school Shouko in the hospital, suffering from a grave illness. Mysteriously, his old scars begin throbbing whenever he's near her.

With Shouko's bizarre situation somehow revolving around him, Sakuta will need to come to terms with his own conflicting feelings, for better or worse. With a girl's life in his hands, just what can he do?

This movie is just as good as the first two arcs of the show. The show did get weaker in the later arcs, but this one didn't follow that. It has a lot of good moments and reveals, although it does get confusing. Very strong film, but the ending feels weak. Mai-san is as waifu as ever, and most of the other girls have solid moments.

Overall, a good addition to the Bunny Girl Senpai story.

From Japanese fan. Plz forgive my poor English.
I'd like to avoid spoilers as well as I can.

Everything was awesome. Truths about Shouko are told with comfortable speed, with absorbing mood,with beautiful musics.
And those truths are so touching... I could't help shedding tears over and over again. Most of audience was looked moved and weeping like me.

I really liked protagonist Sakuta already then, but I even respected Sakuta after he knew Shouko's truth and behaved for her sake. And Mai, she already said 'I love Sakuta than he thinks so' in series, but I almost cried how she showed her love for Sakuta among this ...

This review contains spoilers.

(Before judging, read the entirety.)

I wasn’t anticipating this. I wasn’t having high expectations for it. I did not even feel one bit of hype. But for some reason, I decided to go out with my friends and watch this movie. Expectations were low, yet this movie still somehow managed to exceedingly dismay me. No I’m being way too generous. This movie just took a full shit on my face, and squandered my precious money and time. As unsurprising as it is, the positive responses are regardless absurd, leaving me no choice but to write lengthily. I want to make it clear that ...
