It continues the series. Rei has left for New York in search of Ryuuji. She finds him working at a restaurant and tries to persuade him to continue his music career.
This an obvious and obligatory choice of what to watch after you’ve watched Tokyo Friends the Drama, since it tell the continuation of the story and you can think it will be even better.

However, this was not totally up to my expectations. The first huge and main mistake is the fact that half of the story is before the end of the drama. They kind of go back to start the story, they even repeat the last marriage scene (although with different dresses, wonder why). That makes it less exciting and you kind of start losing the enthusiasm to watch the rest. The second half followed the same heartwarming way of telling the story, with Rei meeting Ryuuji and them having to make choices about
them as a couple and the dreams they both have yet to accomplish, although the pace was somehow a little bit too slow in my opinion.
Nevertheless, you can’t help but watch till the end to know what happens. At first I didn’t like the end (so, what happened to them? You may ask) but then I understood it: it makes you think that life goes on, that you have to keep fighting for your dreams and sometimes changing it as you go. The fact that it was not a closed “happy forever after” ending made it look more real.
