Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The Kimagure Orange Road series centers on a teenage romantic triangle: Hikaru and Madoka were best friends until they fell for Kyosuke, an understated hero with psychic powers. In 1991, the 19-year-old Kyosuke is struck by car and propelled three years into the future, where he tries to understand the changes that have taken place in his world. Madoka and Hikaru have grown up to become a promising songwriter and a student of drama and dance, respectively; the older Kyosuke is a student-photographer on assignment in Bosnia. The problem of two Kyosukes coexisting is played for laughs, including a sequence where the 22-year-old Kyosuke counsels his younger self. The filmmakers expect the viewer to know the characters from the OAVs, although designs have been changed. The result is a Pax-style romantic fantasy, rather than a sci-fi adventure. Suggested rating is 15+: nudity, sexual situations, alcohol and tobacco use. --Charles Solomon

Also, how about showcasing the beautiful art from KOR.

I would recommend this to people who like romance shows but be warned this isn't like any other romance anime I've ever seen.

After watching this movie, I can't believe that the story can get even better.

Format: DVD
This is the second movie from the popular "Kimagure Orange Road" series.
"Kimagure Orange Road" began as a 48-episode TV series which capture the hearts of many anime fans. The show features a family of ESPers: Kyousuke, the main character, his twin sisters and his non-ESPer father. The show revolves around Kyousuke's life at a new highschool and meeting two roughneck gangsters: Hikaru and her best friend (tough fighter and talented musician), Ayukuwa Madoka. Hikaru loves Kyouske who loves Ayukuwa but despite her feelings for Kyousuke, she holds her emotions because of her best friend.
Then came the six OAV's which led to the emotional rollercoaster movie where the love triangle had to come to an end.
The movie picks up years later where an older and buffer Kyousuke is a professional photographer who is nearly killed in Bosnia. Before he is hurt, he manages to warn Kyousuke (a few years younger) that he is going to get a major accident and to be careful. When the two get hurt simultaneously, the younger Kyousuke ends up in the older Kyousuke's timeline with an older Madoka and the return of Hikaru. How will Hikaru feel when she sees Kyousuke again? How will Madoka bring back the Kyousuke of the present? Also, what will be of the relationship between young-adult Kyousuke and Madoka?
For one to truly appreciate this movie, I highly recommend you watch the TV episodes or even the OAV and then the first movie. People just watching this drama may or may not enjoy it if they haven't seen the previous episodes but to truly enjoy this movie, it is recommended that you catch up on the previous episodes.
As for the DVD, I'm disappointed that ADV didn't include any extras. ADV trailers, different language tracks and menu doesn't count.

I picked this movie up on a whim, having never seen the series before. I remember watching it and enjoying it quite a bit when I first got it last year, even without a fully developed backstory on it. Now, after having watched the TV series, I decided to watch the movie again and see if it was better/worse than what I remembered... and I must say that this movie is totally amazing, whether you've seen the TV/OVA series or not!
This is a story of young man, Kyosuke Kasuga (Kasuga Kyosuke to we English speakers), who has supernatural powers, like teleportation, along with his sisters (his father doesn't have the "power" because his wife had the power and he married into it). Something the movie doesn't explain is that they are considered ESPers (people with ESP), so if you aren't familiar with the Anime term, you may not realize EXACTLY what is going on at the end of the movie (you sort of miss a "joke" without this information). Kyosuke, Hikaru and Ayukawa have been long time friends, Kyosuke having chosen Ayukawa over Hikaru when he finally decided who he was in love with for real, I believe at the end of their Junior High School "career".
One day Kyosuke receives a phone call from someone who claims to be HIM, warning him to "watch out for the car". Heeding it no mind (as he is running late), he leaves his apartment for school. Well, as fate would have it, Kyosuke is hit by a car and sent to the hospital... in body anyway. When Kyosuke is hit by the car his "spirit" is sent forward in time 3 years, leaving just his body in '91. We learn that THIS Kyosuke is here and at the same time he was hit by the car, his self from this time (1994) was in another crisis, thus he displaced the 1994 Kyosuke.

I've been a huge fan of KOR since college. I own the manga and DVDs of both the OVAs and the TV series. After watching this movie, I can't believe that the story can get even better. Maybe I'm just getting older, but I definitely prefer the New Kimagure over the original, which I thought was already perfect. I would strongly advise watching at least the OVAs before this movie since it would enhance your experience.

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.
