I watched this with longing and nostalgia. It's been over 10 years since "Hana & Alice". It simply is invigorating, seeing Iwai's coming-of-age comedy dramas. Lovely seeing Ann Suzuki and Yu Aoi work again. That comedic and mysterious plot was a joy to watch. I'm glad Iwai was sure to incorporate that familiar atmosphere even in 2D. Makes you want to rewatch the original film. It simply leaves a wonderful feeling.
