It has been a long wait, but you’re finally diving into Odd Taxi In the Woods. You poured over the original series for every plot point and story development you could find, and now you’re ready to see everything new the series’ first film brings to the table. There’s just one problem, and it comes in the form of a question that’s plaguing your mind: Why is everyone an animal again in Odd Taxi In the Woods? We were in the same boat, and that’s why we’ve created this guide on the matter.
Why is Everyone Turned Back Into an Animal in Odd Taxi In the Woods? Answered
To make a long story short, everyone is an animal again in Odd Taxi In the Woods because it’s not a direct sequel to the Odd Taxi anime series. Instead, the film is a retelling of the original story with new character segments and an extended ending.
This means that it kicks off before Odokawa regains his normal perception of people and retraces the events that led up to his fateful encounter with a perspective cab customer at the end of the original series. You wouldn’t be blamed for feeling a little let down by this realization. After all, the original series ended on a huge cliffhanger that fans were hoping the movie would address.
However, it’s worth bringing up that In the Woods still has plenty to offer. The aforementioned new character segments bring some new perspectives to the intricate tale weaved by the series. They feel like natural additions to the story, too, building on what’s already there without creating unnecessary fluff.
Likewise, the ending does receive some additional scenes and content as well. This goes toward providing viewers with a better sense of where the series was intended to end but still leaves things open-ended enough for a potential sequel to pick up the plot wherever it wishes.
Hopefully, this cleared up why everyone is an animal again in Odd Taxi In the Woods. For more on the series, check out any of the related articles down below.
