Sakuta Azusagawa's little sister, Kaede, is wrapping up middle school and needs to make an important decision. The school counselor believes it is in Kaede's best interest to attend an online high school, given her history of being a shut-in and her crippling phobia of traditional classrooms. However, Kaede wishes to enroll in Minegahara High School, just like her brother, as she desperately hopes for a typical high school experience. She pleads with Sakuta; his girlfriend, Mai Sakurajima; and Mai's half-sister, Nodoka Toyohama, to help her study for the entrance exam—and they enthusiastically agree. But her envisioned high school life does not unfold as planned. With her unresolved trauma coming to a head, Kaede grapples with the conflict of determining what sort of future path she truly wants to embark upon.

The anime covers volume 8 of the light novel.

This shouldn't have been an independent film. Impeccable voice acting, exquisite yet impactful moments, Sakuta being the greatest Onii-chan there ever was - yet it felt... plain, at least compared to the previous arcs animated.

Despite all the conflicts Kaede faces throughout the show, all the heartwarming but slow build-up made it almost feel like a slice of life show rather than a supernatural and mysterious one. This isn't necessarily a bad thing as nothing feels forced, but I'd be lying if I didn't say I wanted more oomph to the story. I personally was craving for Futaba to ted-talk some next-level Nobel-prize winning hypothesis just ...

Mixed Feelings
"Rascal Does Not Dream of a Sister Venturing Out" earns a middling 6/10 rating due to its frustratingly unfulfilled potential. The anime, despite its intriguing premise, suffers from a pacing issue that makes it feel unnecessarily prolonged. The narrative, which could have been effectively condensed into a two-episode arc, is stretched thin over the duration of a movie, resulting in a lack of depth and exploration of the captivating themes introduced.

This is going to have spoilers although tbh there isn't a lot to spoil. So prepare yourself to be underwhelmed!

The hero younger sister of all weebs, aka Kaede-chan, is struggling with grades and remenants of her extreme social anxiety from previous installments of Rascal, and is now facing the dilemma of going to the same school as her brother - because she wants to become a normal girl like everyone else, and remain closer to her brother. Which is an interesting integration of old-Kaede and new-Kaede. Of course that requires high grades which she doesn't have at the moment and overcoming her personal fears.
