That aside, surprisingly much skipped from the book for a three-part film adaptation of it. But that's not more than nitpicking, I have actual problems with the film. Mainly that they are changing the focus of the work, shifting it away from its anti-suicidal message. Now Arararagi's main motivation is that white-knight complex, making him a ritual sacrifice by his own conscience. In contrast, the book just outright said that he wants to kill himself. That was the whole point of him hiding his porn. It was a suicide, so he didn't want people to see the porn. Now it's no longer a suicide, so movie Ragi doesn't care if people will see the porn or not.
tl;dr: they are pulling a GitS'95 on us, and until the next two parts I don't know if it will work or not.
