The band "given"—comprised of Ritsuka Uenoyama, Mafuyu Satou, Haruki Nakayama, and Akihiko Kaji—has advanced to the final screening of the Countdown-fes Amateur Contest, in which they will be judged on their live act. Although enthusiastic, they worry about having only one original song to perform.

Mafuyu embraces the idea of learning more about music in order to create new, emotionally resonant songs. In this regard, he unexpectedly receives help from Ugetsu Murata, Akihiko's on-again, off-again lover. Ugetsu has unsuccessfully tried to let go of Akihiko, who himself is torn between lingering feelings for his past and an uncertain resolve for the future.

As the competition draws near, Haruki uncharacteristically begins to doubt his place in the band and the trust he shares with Akihiko. It is a given that not all attachments last forever, but it remains to be seen what can be salvaged from the ruins of heartbreak—or if only regrets will endure.

It's been quite a while since I looked at Lerche's Given, a romance which had some faults but was still great. We've also seen Lerche's work with Konohana Kitan, Gakkougurashi and the Danganronpa anime. So, they do have a solid record when they aren't working on projects related to Danganronpa which makes me hopeful for this one.


We open with Satou attending a violin concert with Akihiko. This gives him the epiphany that you can convey strong emotions with music. Remember how in the series proper I talked about him having some ridiculous quirks that break suspension of disbelief? Well, add this to ...

Mixed Feelings
Watched it after reading the manga. From what I remember there were no changes which is great.
The thing is that the part of the manga that this movie explores, has a terrible event. The fact that they sound director didn't chose a dark music during that event but a completely opposite one made me disgusted. (*specifications on what that event was at the end of the review)
The animation is the same as in the series except for a higher quality during the performance. Voice acting was good. Sound design was normal. Soundtrack good (great performance song, awful choice during prior mentioned ...

Kaji is a piece of crap. Sure the story ends well... be he straight up ran from everything in his life and messed up everyone else's. He also raped Haruki. WTF. WHY IS THAT OKAY to people?! Why does Haruki say he consented? He didn't. Kaji... you are trash. If you read through the manga he is an even worse piece of crap. I don't care if someone tries to turn their life around, that doesn't mean it makes everything they did okay.
There are SO many other animes that have better stories, with romance, that is about music.

I liked the original anime so ...
