Movie Reviews

A nice upbeat final OAV for the series.
Gen Falel | Hawaii | 06/29/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"First, I should let you know that the DVD I bought had a different cover. Same movie, however.

If you have watched all the TV episodes, the other OAVs, and the final movie for KOR (I want to return to that day--the inevitable and heartrendingly beautiful/painful resolution of the love triangle), you very likely have as much love for the series as I do, and can overlook (or embrace) the occasional bits of cheesy silliness that were present in all of KOR except the final movie, instead submersing yourself in the true beauty and sweetness of the series.

This OAV (which is NOT part of a new series. It's called "new" to show that it comes AFTER "I want to return to that day") has the cheese, and has the sweetness and fun, just like the other OAVs did.

Although I believe this OAV could stand alone, I think it is much better suited to be watched after someone's seen a good portion of the TV episodes, one or two OAVs, and absolutely the Final Movie (which is, IMO, stunningly good.)

This OAV makes a good postscript to the series by showing not only that life and joy and friendship go on, but also showing how they went on in the lives of the characters we've come to love. I'd give it five stars, but not for anyone watching it without having seen the series, so I'm leaving it at four."
Different perspective as I grew up

"I watched KOR when I was a teenager; in fact, my age is about the same as Kyosuke, Madoka, and Hikaru in the show. Surprisingly, I found myself appreciating the animation, especially this final OAV movie and the original movie, more so as a full grown adult right now with kids. The show is about love and commitments one made in life, whatever that might be. While there might be some silliness in the movie (and the original TV show), those silliness only enable the characters and the audience to ask the question "what if's".

The only question I have is why Amazon added "Vol. 1" after the title; this is a movie, not a OAV series."
