If you're a fan of Himekawa and Kikuta and feel as strongly about them as I do (and boy do I feel strongly about them), this film will surely punch you (repeatedly) in the gut. I am bitter for all that they had built up in the drama to have it fall apart by the end of invisible rain. Yes, Himekawa will always have a darkness within her that she has to face every day, but couldn't Kikuta have been her light? For me, episode 11 was the end of the show. La la la.

Despite that, and although I hate to admit it, Yuko and Takao's chemistry was pretty on point. I think that's about it. I feel like there was a lack of screen time for the Himekawa team, which is why I fell in love with the drama in the first place.

Basically, everything @cintaamonyet said ^^

It has been a while since I saw the tv series, so I thought I wouldn't really remember the story line or characters anymore, but as soon as the movie started everything was back to how it was in the drama. Especially the characters and story telling have this distinct "Strawberry Night" touch to it that I remember liking before. However, the movie also shows our female heroin in a new light and digs deeper into her own darkness, which I thought was interesting and surprising.

Basically, I just wanted to pull Kikuta away every time he ran into Makita and Himekawa together ;A; I really liked Kikuta's silent support for Himekawa in the series, so it's unexpected they would make him suffer so much, but it provided a nice bit of lovestory to the movie that didn't feel out of place. And how Kikuta dealt with it at the end of the movie - super cool. Sorry, I know this wasn't the point of the drama but.... ^^;;;

All in all, interesting case and great scenario - dfeinitely and enjoyable watch!

Somehow, I didn't want to watch the movie because that would be the end of live-action Strawberry Night for me. But I was satisfied with it. You got to see Himekawa's (Takeuchi Yuko) vulnerable side and her trying to find justice, whatever the cost. However, I found the ending a bit...just felt the climax of the film fizzled so quickly, and sadly, "Strawberry Night: After the Invisible Rain" doesn't do any justice as to what happens after the events of the movie.

The soundtrack to the film was the cherry on top to this film. Cannot go wrong with Hayashi Yuuki's composition!
