I really love The Girl From The Other Side, both the manga and the two anime versions. I personally prefer the 10-minute short, but the movie has a lot to like about it as well, even if it's not entirely faithful to the manga. It's understandable, as it'd be impossible to adapt an 11-volume manga in a little over an hour, and while the changes the movie makes are pretty suspect, I can understand Wit Studio not wanting to bite off more than it can chew. Also, CR mentioned that they're going to dub it later. Can't wait til that drops! Very Happy

I knew they were making an OVA but had no idea they crowdfunded a movie, awesome!

The manga is excellent so I'm definitely looking forward to seeing this, even if I'm sure a lot had to be cut.

Shame this is so difficult to adapt, and props to Wit for trying their best!

Not a bad film at all, shit knows I certainly enjoyed it when I watched it a few weeks ago.
