Beautiful and otherworldly Ikaros’ connection with Tomoki is deeper than she originally thought. Now she’s starting to feel empty and confused—with new emotions she’s not had much experience with. How will she pick up the pieces after what comes next?

As a preface to this, I personally read the manga before watching the anime and films. If you haven't read the manga then this review may or may not mean as much. I dunno... it's still a shitty movie in my opinion. -- "Hey, man. Wanna ruin a great manga ending with fifty minutes of absolute bovine fecal matter? Yeah, dude! Lets do it!" I wouldn't hesitate to believe that a conversation like this actually happened. I've seen some terrible adaptations of comics, manga, etc., but none have truly made my stomach turn as this movie. The large community of followers for this manga and anime series waited patiently (myself included) for this movie, which was already downgraded from a third season. Now, it almost feels like the producers and creators of the film slapped us in the face. Story: As mentioned earlier, I came into this movie after reading the manga. Upon finishing this extended anime episode (50 minute movie people), I couldn't think of a word in English or Spanish that would appropriately reflect my thoughts. I don't know if I've ever seen an adaptation that nearly ruined a series for me (and there's been some atrocious Snow White remakes). Not only does the story completely excise ~30 chapters of a genuinely stirring plot, it obliterates the order and any attempts at "flow" seem to be tossed out with the morning garbage. Furthermore, a majority of the film only references extra chapters (chapters proceeding the official end of the manga which have little to no bearing on the story or characters at all). Any semblance of comedy or romance was utterly fruitless because of multiple disconnects in the sequence of events. Manga fans: If you were expecting a decent follow-up, don't even bother. Nonetheless, I tried to view the story as if the manga didn't exist. ... It's still not good. There is no sense of pace and the animation style is noticeably different from the previous film and anime series. The movement of the movie as a whole is disjointed and what could have been a decent ending (from what was shown) ending up leaving me feeling disgruntled and agitated. Whether you look at it as a standalone animation or an ending the end result is the same: I feel bad for the people who paid to see this in theatres. Story: 1/10 Animation: As previously mentioned, the animation is noticeable different than the preceeding film and anime series. The lines are harder and the colors are blatantly over-exaggerated. Facial-expressions were stagnant and even the chibi moments felt dull and overtly childish. I'll give a little respect for not completely ruining this aspect, but to any viewer who's coming into the movie from the past film and series, it's a clearly noticeable and (for me) aggravating distinction. Animation: 5/10 Sound: The music and sound effects were okay, but they weren't blazing any trails. However, I did not feel the selection(s) invoked any of the neccesary emotions or even begin to reflect a majority of situations. They weren't "bad" per se, but there was often a disconnect between the scene and its music. I originally gave the sound 5/10 credit for not totally dropping the ball, but there were little to no connections that could be made (or even inferred for that matter) with the audience which I feel is much more crucial to the success of an animated film or any motion picture for that matter. Sound: 4/10 Characters: The characters are, more or less, the same characters we've come to know and love. However, the pacing of the plot and situational placements made the characters seem distant and unrelatable. I wanted to be able to laugh with Tomoki in his chibi form or snicker at Ikaros' complacency, but their depictions made me feel awkward and left out of any attempts of comedy (or even romance). This feeling forced a negative opinion of characters that I desperately wanted to love. Characters: 2/10 Overall, I didn't even finish the movie the first time I tried to watch it. Literally. I put my headphones down and walked away. I don't know how I convinced myself to sit down and try again. I and hundreds of other fans ended up waiting to watch 50 minutes of what could be summed up as a child's attempt to conclude a series that obviously contained more depth than the scriptwriters, producers, and director seemed to comprehend. A surprisingly tragic yet ultimately happy ending was inaccurately warped into five minutes of confusing chaos which fell face-first into the most difficult 45 minutes of filler I've ever watched (and I've seen all the Bleach and Naruto fillers). I could ramble on and on about my distaste for Eternal My Master, but in an attempt to discontinue beating this already dead, decrepit, and plagued horse any further I'll quote the words of another reviewer whose statement sums up my concluding thoughts perfectly: "Read the manga ending instead, pretend this one doesn't exist."
