Is Odd Taxi In the Woods a Sequel or Retelling? Answered

First and foremost, it’s worth noting that Odd Taxi In the Woods is a retelling, not a full-on sequel. This is why everyone is shown as animals again despite the events that transpired at the end of the Odd Taxi anime series.

The movie traces the same events but more quickly and with some new bits of introspective from certain characters. The only new material it has, aside from these introspective scenes, is its ending, which picks up after the final scene of the anime and provides some new interactions between Odokawa and a couple of other characters.

This isn’t the worst thing in the world. By doing this, the story feels more compact and streamlined toward weaving the best story it can using the original source material. At the same time, though, it will be somewhat disappointing if you were expecting a full-on sequel to the events of the original story.

When You Should Watch Odd Taxi Into the Woods

As such, there are a few key factors to consider when deciding whether or not to watch Odd Taxi In the Woods. If you’re dying to know more about what happened after the ending of the series transpired, then it’s worth watching. Doing so will give you a perfect leadup to the new content and help refresh your memory on everything leading up to this point.

On the flip side, it’s also worth watching if you’re fairly new to the series and may not have even seen the original show in its entirety. The movie is a great alternative and will leave you with the most up-to-date view of the story possible.
