Is this really marketing itself as a tearjerker? As if that's anything hard to do.

Definitely hyped and looking forward to watching this!

After seeing that catchphrase from the key visual, all I have to say is “Bring it On! And wreck my heart yet again Mari Okada!”

Great to see Anohana’s team working on this project by the way! Some excellent Staff to boot, thisbis going to be a really big thing I’m sure! Hopefully, it won’t be a repeat of the Fireworks Movie.

Just a personal opinion but CloverWorks is really turning out to be the next big thing, much like how Wit Studio managed to do despite (formerly) being a subsidiary of Production I.G.

By the way, is it just me or is masked female characters slowly becoming a trend? I myself usually have a mask when I’m outside, so it kind of intrigues me on a personal level I suppose. Even in SSSS. Gridman, that masked friend of Rika kind of piqued my interest.

No offense but I tend to kinda dislike it when people use the word NTR and Mari Okada... despite the fact that it's not really NTR or at least her writing isn't NTR.

I don't know.

i said "Ntr vibes" and not "Ntr"

she loves teasing couples and destroy them after
just look at The Anthem of the Heart /Nagi no Asukara ...
her last work 'Maquia' have a clear Ntr

she have an Ntr fetish without any doubt

Anime girl chilling on the roof of a car is a nice eyecatch ngl.

Way to early to judge for me, but as someone who liked AnoHana, I'll keep my hopes up.

Menma is one of my most despised anime characters ever and I dislike forced tearjerkers more than anything, so...

Let's do this! :^)

Well, I didn't like Anohana but Maquia became my favorite standalone movie last year, it's too early to see which of the two directions it will go, but I'm definitely excited!

Another Okada Mari x Nagai Tatsuyuki film? I'm up for it. Anthem of the heart wasn't a particularly great movie but it was pretty solid. Just hope this doesn't waste too much time with the 2 hours it's going to be given.

I'm a simple man. I see Okada Mari writing script for a series, I hype.
