On September 19, 2019, the movie was first advertised upon releasing the anime adaptation’s final episode. It was then delayed and was later set to release on August 22, 2020, in Japan.
The manga suggests the plot of Given2 that reflects the band tracks toward their first live concert. Mafuyu grapples with writing lyrics for their new song. However, they can’t find the words to express the sentiments burning within him. Meanwhile, Uenoyama hears falsehoods about Mafuyu’s past and is confounded by his feelings. The anxiety builds until the night of the show when the band collapses into a raging, life-changing performance.
Kaji treasures someone as his first love. Haruki is doing well on his guitar; However, Kaji comments that both Ritsuka and Mafuyu are corrupt. Ritsuka loudly reprimands Mafuyu stating he has made no progress before Haruki tells him to stop criticizing him.
Ritsuka has also been acting surprisingly recently before he realizes the unspoken assumptions of what he has said. Kaji called for a break from patients and was concerned they may disband the underlying stresses and reasons for the one-on-one with Ritsuka.
Small talk leads to getting accurate to Kaji’s point if something transpired between Ritsuka and Mafuyu, acknowledging both Ritsuka likes him and has made a move. Ritsuka is surprised at the suggested question in its entirety. With the topic breached, Ritsuka asks if he is strange, Kaji sincerely shares that he has encountered those feelings too in the past. He informs Ritsuka that Mafuyu is attempting to live up to his expectations, so Ritsuka effectively supports him.
Give That Cruel Thing
Ritsuka supports a girl during the cleanup, and there she tearfully confesses for saying such a cruel thing about Mafuyu. They are superintended by two of his friends and Mafuyu as she says it was designing what she did. Mafuyu assumes that everyone likes Ritsuka because he is so kind to everyone. Mafuyu understands from his class friends that they will be revisiting his live appearance. He wonders what he wants to communicate to them. During practice, they notice he has developed before Kaji takes Haruki, leaving Ritsuka solely with Mafuyu.
It has been two moons since they met, and as Mafuyu sleeps, Ritsuka terminates his hands. Revival, where they both think nothing of it, tells Mafuyu to try his best with the song lyrics. However, he does not want to see or hear the song in substance, scared of what Mafuyu will communicate when he is in love with someone. As Kaji and Haruki give them time, Kaji remembers his love once more as he understands that Ritsuka’s feelings are a bomb with the potential to tear the band apart.
With one week left until the live performance, Kaji’s purposes are to stop functioning Haruki, Ritsuka, and Mafuyu’s varied reactions. Although Mafuyu’s guitar playing has reached a temporary mark now, Haruki feels that the lyrics not being done is the more serious problem here.
Kaji does not think Mafuyu will be capable of writing the song lyrics if they keep endlessly training in the studio. Adding on Haruki and Ritsuka together, Kaji attempts to take Mafuyu on his motorbike. Alone, Kaji uses the possibility to hint that he does not think Mafuyu will be able to write the lyrics, except Mafuyu has made peace with his history. Kaji remains assuming that he knows nothing about it.
Given Movie Release Date: English Dubbed
The movie was first announced on September 19, 2019, upon the release of the final episode of the anime adaptation. It was then postponed and was later set to release August 22, 2020, in Japan, and Given is finally releasing in the English version in the last week of February. It talks about Haruki is finding Rituka’s support, as Kaji suggested. As he drives, he contrasts the situation to a board game where each roll of the dice bar will appear in an unfortunate outcome.
Though the aim is to decrease Ritsuka’s passion, Haruki states that he thinks the purpose Kaji said to stop functioning may be Ritsuka’s fault. Although troubled, Ritsuka listens as Haruki says that his playing is getting more serious, and he puts it down to Ritsuka, assuming over-conscious of Mafuyu. However, he is knowledgeable that they are even further from handling the unspoken tensions in the band. The intentional effort ended in dropping Mafuyu off fine, but Ritsuka is left in shock.
Seven days until the life, Kaji stimulates and leaves his partner sleeping as he makes coffee. Aware that the Kanto quarter will have rain in the early season, he makes breakfast, and Ugetsu asks to bite him. Kaji addresses functioning the drums in preparation for life, and Kaji asks if Ugetsu will come to see.
Awakening, Mafuyu thinks about Kaji’s words about dispatching or running away from his inner feelings. It is 9.20 am, June 28, and Mafuyu accepts a text from Hiiragi to look outside his windowpane. Hiiragi is stood in the car park and calls him to come out and play with him.
Checking out the window, Mafuyu acknowledges his phone to Hiiragi, who is calling extreme for them to hang out. At the park, Hiiragi is questioned why he is concerned about him now behind all this time. Mafuyu thinks that Kashima Hiiragi fulfills not interfere because he understands it does not have much meaning. He thinks back to their younger days when Mafuyu knew that Hiiragi was designating that his adolescent friends had started dating, that he was aware of everything. Mafuyu estimates an instance where he came across him and Yuki kissing but said nothing.
Back at the park, Hiiragi pieces that he regrets not doing anything to be there for Mafuyu with what he was knowledgeable of between him and Yuki. As he says he appreciates how he feels, Mafuyu insinuates that he knows nothing about how he thinks. However, gasps when he sees Hiiragi’s overcome reaction and acknowledges that he is right.
He says he dislikes it as Mafuyu believes that Hiiragi wants to be forgiven. It does not matter by whom. A memory of Hiiragi exhibits he, Mafuyu, and Yuuki were boyhood friends. A fourth member, Shizusumi, was removed in the middle of the year, and he remembers their movements. He particularly remembered that Yuki and Mafuyu, both latchkey kids from fatherless families from the start, were unfinished halves where they chose each other’s missing pieces together. They were both necessary to one another, an atmosphere they had constructed for themselves.
In Hiiragi’s memory, he observed the flashy, dominant, moody Yuki and the passive, introverted, and possessed Mafuyu, with everyone around questioning why they suited each other so well. He used the phrase contradictions attract to represent them as he saw them being close. As they converted high school students, went to separate schools, and Yuki, Shizusumi, and Hiiragi began performing music until some strain appeared. Yuki started a part-time job to purchase a guitar, but otherwise, they circumscribed themselves to the studio.
It is recognized that Mafuyu and Yuki had a small fight, one portrayed as childish. Hiiragi knew everything, including when two days later they both passed from his sight. Yuki, who did not drink, had absorbed a lot of alcohol, which is when Mafuyu found him.
It is raining as Hiiragi’s recount appears to an end. He sits with his face in his knuckles as Mafuyu takes a seat alongside him and shares the performance he is doing on Sunday. Hiiragi requests if it is okay if he goes. It is, for him and Shizu, too. Raising that he released his anger on him, Mafuyu understands that he said Hiiragi did not understand his feelings earlier. However, the truth is, Mafuyu himself is the one who does not appreciate them the most. He demonstrates that he did not want to face them, so he stopped running away. Hiiragi whacks him in acknowledgment, grins, and, taking his dispensation, tells Mafuyu to text him once in a while.
As he wanders away, it is thought again that it does not involve by whom. He just wants to be released more than anyone. He wants Mafuyu to absolve him. In other places, Ritsuka lies unconscious at his desk, Ugetsu and Akihiko prepare the violin together, and Haruki accepts drinks, and Hiiragi rests on Shizusumi.
The live event’s meeting is about, to begin with, the band consisting of Akihiko, Mafuyu, Ritsuka, and Haruki instant. It is the day of the performance, and they are opening, but they do note that Mafuyu did not even sing in the rehearsal in the end.
