To keep this related to laserdiscs, Shin Kimagure Orange Road (New Kimagure Orange Road): Soshite Ano Natsu no Hajimari [VPLV-70656] is the movie in question. I just learned tonight that this film was translated and released in the US by ADV Films on DVD (no LD). I love KOR, but am not sure if I want to see it. Will I be disappointed? Is it pure crap? Will it send me into a fit of rage? KOR fans, please chime in.

I'm not a huge KOR fan by any stretch, but I did see this movie when it came out. From what I remember it was unremarkable, but not terrible.

I am a KOR fan.
What you should know is... the artwork is changed from "old style" to "new style".
If that makes any sense to you.

The box set Shin Kimagure Orange Road: Soshite Ano Natsu no Hajimari: Boxset Limited Edition (1996) [VPLV-70628] is a really nice piece, if you are a collector.

What I especially liked about the new movie...
Madoka looks so damn awesome now :shock:
I enjoy re-watching this every now and then.

I have the box set, but haven't actually watched it yet. The original ending (episodes 47 & 48, plus the "first" movie) is so satisfying that it's hard to imagine that anything else wouldn't ruin it!

That makes perfect sense. I prefer the old, but I have no problems with "new" style in 1996. I'd have a problem if it were "new" 2013 style.

That's what my big worry is. The series already wrapped up very nicely. Is it just a re-telling/alternate telling, like the Escaflowne movie, or does it take place after the first movie?

I actually saw this in a theater in Japan when it first ran. It's pretty good. Takes place a few years after the movie.

It is set ten years after the end of the series and first TV movie as it was a "tenth anniversary special". It is very much in the same serious tone of the first movie, and nothing like the TV series. I still have not gotten around to buying the Jp DVD or LD box yet, but I did borrow the ADV VHS tape from a friend many years ago. I quite liked it from what I can remember, it resolved the whole triangle story nicely. The first movie was such a shock to me after watching the series, it was so sad! The second movie resolved the relationships between the 3 fairly well. It did make me laugh that the 2 friends whose names I do not remember, became p0rn directors or something of that nature. As a fan of the series, I do not think you will be disappointed.
