Always: Sunset on Third Street 3 (2012)

Always: Sunset on Third Street 3 is a 2012 Japanese 3D movie directed by Takashi Yamazaki and the third film of the blockbuster Always franchise.

Although the series is based on a Ryohei Saigan manga, the third film diverges from the original work by leaping forward to the year 1964. However, Saigan was consulted for ideas and signed off on the final draft of the script.

Construction is occurring at a rapid pace and Tokyo is rapidly moving toward a new era leading up to the Tokyo Olympics.

Meanwhile, on Third Street, the novelist Chagawa is now married to Hiromi and they are still taking care of Junnosuke as if he were their own while he attends high school. However, the popularity of Chagawa’s Adventure Boys Book Magazine is threatened by an upstart writer.

Meanwhile, the Suzukis have expended their car repair business to an impressive degree and Mutsuko has a crush on a young doctor named Kikuchi who she arranges to “accidentally” cross paths with every morning.
