Let's recap and recap some more.
Really is there anything as boring as watching the same thing over and over again? Sure there are things that don't loose their appeal but sitting through a narration of a story one has already watched 24 episodes of has got to fall under the definition of insanity.
Is there anything more upsetting then expecting a continuation, a side-story, a back-story, a something that adds and getting a plain recap? Perhaps famine, war, face-plants, wedgies ... there may be a list that rivals the prevalence of recaps in anime but the disappointment is none-the-less present.
Especially if you watch the movie soon after finishing the 24th episode, as this reviewer did.
If viewers are to "aim for the sky"* alongside Haru, Chiyuri, Kuroyukihime, Takumu and the others then they should be given something with value to give them wings.
If you're thinking there is something somewhere in this, an Easter egg or a new perspective on something, then your expectations will not be met.
While this movie does focus on the highlights of the series its nothing that couldn't be seen by watching the series and remains something that people who like condescend stories would rate high.
Everyone else would be better off skipping it though some may find it worthwhile as a refresher should a second season be created.
