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. It's dialogue heavy, but it's worth it to pay attention. Still don't understand why this arc needed to be made into a movie, but the length feels about right. Overall, a good addition to the Bunny Girl Senpai story.

"Rascal Does Not Dream of a Dreaming Girl" is the sequel to the 13-episode anime series "Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai" that took the internet and otaku world by storm in the forth quarter of 2018 with its flabbergasting title and premise. Adapted from the light novel series with the same name, at first glance it seemed as if it would be another adaptation of an unreasonably long and clickbait title, however it turned out to actually have a beating heart and an interesting direction to take its viewers to. The chemistry between Azusagawa Sakuta and Sakurajima Mai was reminiscing of ...

Why is this low budget powerpoint presentation with an incoherent plot sitting at an 8.72? Seriously, besides sound, what redeemable aspect is there here?

I'm not even really sure why I watched this; I knew it would be completely terrible. After the shameless plagiarism, non-existent characterization, and bizarre pseudoscience of the parent show, literally no one with any shred of self-respect or decency wanted a sequel. Yet here it is, and it's somehow exponentially worse than its already terrible prequel.

Let's start off with characters, shall we? The focus character of this movie is nobody's favorite character, Mai Sakurajima But She Doesn't Have a Rabbit Hair Clip. ...
