It is a year later but better late than never I talk about this delightful movie/Mega Third Season Appetizer.
Check out my reviews of the 1st and 2nd seasons HERE.
This one is a quickie because there is little to add that I have not already. The movie featured everything fans came to love about the series but on a grander stage in a close to 70 minute cinematic feature.
- Beautiful vistas
- Calm atmosphere
- Blissful moments of silence
- Adorable humor
- Adorable cast
- Lighthearted yuri
All of it is present and accounted for in this movie as we join our heroines and one of the best male characters of all media on a trip to Okinawa they won in a lottery. The reaction to them winning was priceless. So yes it is more of the same but on a grander stage, which is exactly what fans hoped for.
Let us get to what everyone is here for:
Yup. I still hold the belief that Candy Store (or whatever her actual nickname is) is patiently waiting for Renge to grow older.
I will not give anything away about the most important character introduced in the movie, Aoi. I will say two things:
- For the most part this is a Natsumi movie. The other girls get plenty of time to shine of course but Natsumi has the most character development.
- I hope Aoi makes a cameo appearance in the third season. Readers who saw the movie will know why.
Now for the most important development.
The movie gave viewers a small glimmer of hope that The Champ (Hotaru) would resume her noble quest in the third season. Viewers who saw NNB Repeat (S2) know her quest took a backseat. Yes we saw the origin of how she fell in love with Komari but there her pursuit of true happiness did not get as much recognition as it did in S1. Hopefully this is a sign of more blissful young love in the near future.
And there you have it. Readers who have yet to watch the movie and are NNB fans are recommended to check NNB Vacation out when able. Great stuff.
