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?

Forgetting the absurdly long and weird name, this was a good movie.
But one thing plagues this movie. This movie is amazing no doubt, but it just oozes Haruhi Suzumiya vibes for some reason. It is a good thing for sure, but it is to the point where I felt like it took heavy inspiration from it.

The plot is about saving Makinohara from heart failure. The MC had a bunch of debates with himself on if he has to save himself or sacrifice his life for Makinohara. There were a lot of challenges and struggles.

We also meet a future version of Makinohara and there ...

Mixed Feelings
Ughhh- the only word to describe this movie.
First of all, even after re-watching I didn't get how many things happened. In the prequel you could understand things but I doubt many people got this and when you just don't get the plot the show will never feel good to you. If we are talking about Animation and sound, it is more gross. In the prequel, there were such vibrant colors; perfect for its content and while background sound was really not anything, I myself particularly enjoyed the OP. But unfortunately Cloverworks sucked in case of Animation in this movie; no vibrant colors, backgrounds hastily done ...

There are spoilers in this review.

This movie left a big impression on me which urged me to write this review.

It has the same premise as the series. A girl has a problem due to Puberty Syndrome and Sakuta has to solve it.
