On the surface, high school students Naomi Katagaki and Ruri Ichigyou seem to be polar opposites. In contrast to Naomi's shy and timid personality, Ruri strikes fear in her classmates due to being rather cold and outspoken. Nevertheless, both Naomi and Ruri nourish a strong passion for reading, which gradually draws the two closer.

As Naomi spends more time with Ruri, he discovers that she has a sweet side and is not as intimidating as everyone thinks. Subsequently, he develops genuine feelings for Ruri and decides to confess his love to her, which she happily reciprocates.

However, their wholehearted relationship is disrupted when Ruri gets struck by lightning, causing her to enter a coma. Wanting to see her smile again, Naomi resolves to return Ruri to her everyday life—no matter how great the lengths he must stride are.

This review contains spoilers of Hello World.

🙆‍♂️ 6/10
Satisfied with Hello World and need more? Here you go. Another world, by its name, the story starts in another world, which is the world of the older Naomi, where the whole story really started.

🎬 Story - 6/10
The story is pretty much fine. It is simply the story of Naomi’s memories. The core of the story is already told in the movie, but here is a more detailed one, including some untold parts. There is only a little problem with somewhat dull storytelling.

Mixed Feelings
These shorts contain the emotional development the movie was missing. With the two separated, both feel incomplete.

~ Story 6/10

Adult Naomi's story is fleshed out here. We get to see his feelings for Ruri grow in his youth, and then his turmoil and emotional hollowness as he goes into adulthood.

It sounds great on paper. Unfortunately in reality, it's just not very interesting separated from the movie.
If you watch this before the movie, you will be very confused. If you watch this after the movie, you will feel like the emotional development came too late. The ideal situation would have been to have the heartfelt moments ...

Another World, a spin-off to the movie Hello World, give the necessary character development the movie couldn't show.

As far as storytelling goes I liked this more than the movie. The spin-off dealt the story-telling in 3 different episodes each starring Naomi as he gets to where he is in the movie. Before moving on to the story and the characters, I'd like to highlight areas in which the spin-off was better than the movie.

A major drawback of CGI anime movies is the movement of individual characters on screen. Sometimes the character models can feel a bit too unnatural than they already are when placed in ...
