Synopsis

Centuries ago, Kanna, a princess and the last of a winged race, was held prisoner in a castle as she was feared by the rest of the world. However, when she met a soldier named Ryuuya, she fell in love with him and told him of her wishes to see the outside world and to find her mother. Ryuuya attempted to fulfill these wishes. However, his efforts were in vain as Kanna was sealed in the sky through magic and cursed to be in pain for all eternity.

Hundreds of years later, Yukito, a decendant of Ryuuya, comes to a quiet town one week before their annual festival with hopes that he can make some money. However, when he meets an unusual girl called Misuzu, he is reminded of what his mother once told him—"When you go out on your journey, if you find the winged girl's re-incarnation, you must use your power to set her free."

Yukito and Misuzu's fates soon become intertwined with each other, with each developing feelings for the other. However when Yukito realizes Misuzu's connection to the past, he must decide on whether to leave, or to attempt to break the curse that has bound Kanna in centuries of pain.

"A condensed love story with significant differences from its TV counterpart."

Advice #1: Do NOT watch the movie right after finishing the TV series. It is very tempting to do so (for comparison) but you are bound to be disappointed if you do so (due to various reasons to be discussed below).

Advice #2: Forget what happened in the TV series about Kano and Minagi as they play no part in the movie so do not hope for much of their appearance in the movie. (same for PIKO PIKO!)

Advice #3: Do NOT view the movie as inferior to the TV series. You are comparing French to English. read more

**MINOR spoilers included.

Air the movie was a different story compared to the TV series, but both started and ended the same way. There were a lot of differences, such as Misuzu and Yukito’s relationship, as well as Kanna and Ryuuya’s relationship. In fact, the story focused more on these relationships, removing the story arcs of Kano, Michiru and Tohno. I guess they wanted to give more light to Kanna and Ryuuya’s story (which is a good decision)

As for Misuzu and Yukito, their relationship was more boyfriend-girlfriend, whereas in the series, they were more like brother and sister. Kanna and Ryuuya were much closer too, and read more

To start off, I watched the Air movie after the series. I wanted to compare them and see how good it was. This was not a mistake, since the movie and the series are quite different in many ways. Personally, I believe the movie is so much better, and it should be watched before or after the anime. This is why... (NOTE: Spoilers will be announced.)

Hmmm... It's actually my first time writing any kind of review, but I'll try my best...

First of All let me say I enjoyed original series. It was touching, it was interesting, had great art...

With that being said, I personally don't see much similarities between this movie and original. First: the animation. I just couldn't get used to new art, it kept bugging me through whole series. In Original series characters actually looked cute, while in this movie just freaky. Animation itself was OK though I think.

Then the characters... I'm sorry but the idea of making someone say "A", "definately A", and then without any real read more
