Just missed a bit of the flair from the 1st series.
3 April 2020 | by elegyforthefallenSee all my reviews

I honestly don't think this movie is bad per se, It was still an enjoyable experience, but it definitely had a lacking element that made me fall in love with the original series.

Kyoto animation usually never fails to deliver on the artistic side of this series. I found myself spellbound by the artistry, (soundtrack is as amazing as ever) and the character growth was nothing short of satisfying.

My main concern is of course storyline . It wasn't that it didn't have a good premise, there was tons of promise to it.

The problem was it just pulled on my heartstrings just enough for me tear up, But not enough for me to truly care about these new characters.

What truly touched me was more about the sister's bonds themselves, but even that fell short for a while.

The last series did SO GOOD so much so that these stories all brought something to the table that was unique and heartbreaking/heartwarming, it left me a quivering mess afterwards.

You could literally feel like they we're grasping for straws on the emotions of the audience, which sadly wasn't very effective.

Does this movie suck? No, I would say it was pretty decent overall. But I feel like they developed this film just enough for the audience to like it, but not love it.

It's worth watching at least once, I'll leave you to make your own astute observations.
