For those who haven't watch the movie yet. I can guarantee that you won't be disappointed. It's way different than the TV series so it doesn't matter if you watch the tv series or not but you will have a deeper understanding of the setting and characters if you do. The only really bad thing I could say about this movie is the lack of season 2 announcement at the end of the credit.

Maybe I'll check it out. It's coming to a theatre near me so I might give it a go. I was really not a fan of the TV show. The "look it's an anime reference" humor and the obnoxious fanservice turned me off. Yeah, I know some of it was tongue and cheek but, I rarely found it funny or charming.

Sora and Shiro kinda weighed down NGNL for me, so this review gave me high hopes for this movie.

I knew this movie would be good, I just knew it. Someone who has seen this movie, please answer without spoiling too much: how good was the scene where Tet appears?

Also, just so people know: the mani characters of this movie have absolutely nothing to do with Sora and Shiro. They are not ancestors, not are Shiro and Sora their reincarnations. Tet has stated in the LN that souls do not reincarnate.


Hello,
I watched it.
It was (sooooooooooo) good.
What are you waiting for?
: )

P.S. Tet isn't the reason why this movie is (soooooooooo) good.
P.S.S. I only watched the 1st episode of the series before going into the theater.

tv series was absolute trash, the most blatant of fanservice and lolicon bait. coupled with the scandal of the author being exposed as an art thief shortly after the anime, i lost all interest in any work related to him since then.

I really don't quite get why people care about loli fanservice, it's like, if you don't like it, don't watch it. Honestly, i think the loli fanservice was the best thing about NGNL, just because the author really tried his best to be unashamed about his superb taste as possible. And to those who are really worried about the author and his "predatory actions" or whatever, just note he's already married and living a decent life. The only difference is he likes cute 2D lolis.

I'll be going to the showing on the 5th. For those who have seen it, would you recommend rewatching the series before or after the movie?

Just got back from seeing the sub at the movie theater tonight. It was fantastic, well worth the ticket price. While it's certainly different than the first season, there are also a lot of similar qualities to it, to the point that you can tell it's a NGNL film. It took a lot of aspects of the series that worked and complemented them with much more emotional writing. If you liked the first season at all, I would strongly suggest giving the film a chance.

Great movie. As the review notes, Sora & Shiro are clearly (at least) the spiritual successors of Riku & Schwi (Shuvi), which makes for some interesting considerations, namely: spoiler[Blank NEVER loses, Riku+Schwi NEVER win, did the latter "pay it forward" for the benefit of the former. Or, (possibly) are the two members of Blank "special" characters blessed by "the one true god" (Tet) for the sacrifices made by their forebears? It's also interesting to consider that Riku played "against" Tet for his entire life and never won,
Tet only lost when confronted by Sora (Riku) AND Shiro (Schwi) together as Blank, who are (sort of) also the pair that gave him his current status.]


Also, spoiler[I just appreciated the nod that Tet's rules of the world were basically originally created/inspired by Riku]

my biggest gripe is not in the movie but the 20 minute intro from Sentai Filmwork voice actors and producers almost spilling the beans before the movie. STOP! STOP! STOP! We don't need a walkthrough and that long summary before the film. My advice: be late 20 minutes less. Look at the preview for SAO: Ordinal Scale. Japanese VAs introduced themselves and just teased us for the film. They handled it with respect to the audience while Sentai did the opposite.

If you've been to enough Fathom Events showings, you know to always arrive a little late. They are notorious for including special features that spoil the film, as well as mixing up files (such as some people getting the English dubbed version instead if the subtitled one.)
