Is there a page for the movie adaptation for this book? Sorry if I\'m just not looking in the right place.
Thank you in advance!
Not that I\'m aware of. Are there really that many differences between the novel, the live action and the anime film that separate pages needed to be created? Or can the differences be highlighted well enough by clearly stating when a trope only exists in one medium but not the others? Or creating folders or segments within the page?

No. I haven\'t watched the live action film, but the LN and the anime are basically no different. The \"biggest\" difference is the ending before the epilogue: in the LN, Haruki requests if he and Kyouko can become friends at the cafe, where she point-blank refuses; in the anime, he doesn\'t ask until after she leaves the cafe, and runs after her to ask the question before the credits run. (Effectively moot since they are friends by the epilogue anyway.) I think that it was for narrative effect near the ending. Since the book chains the final chapter and the epilogue together without interruption, his decision to not run after her and give her time wouldn\'t feel as odd. Since the credits play after the events of the final chapter and the epilogue is left as a stinger, Haruki\'s surmounting of the final challenge of his character growth - asking somebody to be his friend - is portrayed as the last thing we see before the end and credits. Otherwise, the animated film is a very faithful adaptation of the LN.
