I was just looking through /a/ and there was a thread about the new movie that came out in theaters in Japan two weeks ago. Pretty much everybody that went to go see it agrees that The Movie>>>The TV Series. Everything that felt awkward during the series got cleaned up and it was generally more fantastic in every way. In addition, much to my delight, *MAJOR SPOILER*
Nia doesn't die in the movie.
Heres a screencap someone took of it in the movie theatre.
