The first part of a two-part movie. The story is a recap of the TV series. Mirai Kuriyama is the sole survivor of a clan of Spirit World warriors with the power to employ their blood as weapons. As such, Mirai is tasked with hunting down and killing "youmu"—creatures said to be the manifestation of negative human emotions. One day, while deep in thought on the school roof, Mirai comes across Akihito Kanbara, a rare half-breed of youmu in human form. In a panicked state, she plunges her blood saber into him only to realize that he's an immortal being. From then on, the two form an impromptu friendship that revolves around Mirai constantly trying to kill Akihito, in an effort to boost her own wavering confidence as a Spirit World warrior. Eventually, Akihito also manages to convince her to join the Literary Club, which houses two other powerful Spirit World warriors, Hiroomi and Mitsuki Nase. As the group's bond strengthens, however, so does the tenacity of the youmu around them. Their misadventures will soon turn into a fight for survival as the inevitable release of the most powerful youmu, Beyond the Boundary, approaches.

A retelling of the anime from Mirai’s perspective. Recommended, but I wouldn’t say watch it instead of the anime. It misses some scenes.


Just a recap


Pretty much summarises the series with one little extra part, that is a MAJOR development for the future of the plot.

Skippable, but good.


Really kind of a shit recap. Glad I did not buy a ticket for this. Would be pissed.


Boring rehash. Just watch the first season and skip this.


Just a really fast-paced re-cap of the series. like, the first half of the series is crammed into the first 30 minutes


Memorable, beautiful. That’s the whole thing about this anime.
