  • A Very Disappointing Story
    I had high hopes for this series since it was a blend of romance, slice of life and scifi, but as the episodes dragged on the plot fell began to fall a part until with the final 3 episodes I did not care for any of the characters. The main character is one of the most ambivalent and uninteresting characters in anime. I was extremely disappointed I had spent so much time assuming the series would ...

  • Senpai! Senpai! Senpai! Senpai! Senpai! Senpai! Senpai! Senpai! Senpai! Senpai!
    "Waiting in the Summer" started off as a fairly typical love story, but ended up being extremely good. The characters are lovable and awesome. The setting is fairly normal. They're located in Japan, but they seem to be more in the countryside, which adds some unfamiliar places in the mix.
    I don't want to spoil too much with what makes this anime different from others, but let's just say there's ...

  • J.C. Staff Doesn't Disappoint...Again!
    Another fantastic series by J.C. Staff, which has definitively become my go to anime production company for when I need a good show to watch.

    My top five shows of all time consists of three of their anime productions (Toradora!, Shakugan No Shana, Waiting In The Summer) and I hope they continue to put out more great work. I hear that they are making another Ano Natsu De Matteru anime series, ...

  • Son of Onegai Teacher
    If you were a fan of the unforgettable Onegai Teacher, this very very worthy followup-remake will have you breathless right from the beginning. All the elements that made Onegai Teacher great are here again, as mentioned by others, the fatal collision/love affair between the shy redheaded extraterrestrial and the shy student, the small sleepy town, the theme of "moving forward," the air of ...

    Take what I say with a grain of salt
    I'm not anime expert, and I’m no professional-quality reviewer. I simply enjoy spending my time watching anime with a good plot. However, this series was not good...

    It was fantastic. Simply brilliant. The animation was crisp and clear, the characters were extremely loveable, the soundtrack was beautiful, and the ending was out of this world. Literally. I'll leave it at that.

    I just ...

  • Probably One Of My Top 5 Anime Of All Time
    Ano Natsu de Matteru (Waiting in the Summer) was just stellar. The anime is something that I can easily recommend to a friend to watch and I'll probably bug them about watching it too. The plot is nothing really new, but the execution is really what mattered when it came to that, and it performed. The music isn't anything special when something casual is going on but as soon as things pick up to ...

  • Ano Natsu de Matteru Review
    This anime is really incredible and stirs up the feelings in the end.

    So this anime is about a boy named, Kaito (wears glasses and has frizzy hair) who's sister has gone out of town for 3 months. Summer break is really close, and Kaito is home alone, but what will happen?!

    GOTTA WATCH THE ANIME TO FIND OUT!!!

    A good watch, but it takes some emotional investment
    For me, this show hit it off pretty well. Everything seemed to flow well and realistically, taking tropes and even cliches that I tend to hate and playing them out with such care and tenderness on your heartstrings that you're brought into the lives and and the wants and wishes of these characters.

    For example, I really don't care much for the whole "He likes her, but she likes someone ...

  • best anime ive watched in a long time
    man, i can't say enough about this anime. it had the romance, the comedy, the action, everything. it built the characters personalities really well and progressed at a good speed. there were times where you would never know what would happen next and times when you knew for sure. the story was great and kept me hooked. i almost cried at the ending, it was probably the sadest ending ive ever seen, ...
