    A Melodrama Done Right
    Anohana is one of those rare anime's that takes a genre that's often misused by anime creators or hated by the community, and makes is right. It will have you start feeling for the characters from episode one, and may even have you in tears in the first episode. But I guarantee you, that you will be hit hard by the time this series ends. I even start to feel like crying simply by thinking about ...

    Challenge to not cry
    If you have never cried during an anime before I challenge you to watch this series. You won't be able to beat the challenge and by the end you will have seen an amazing anime. If you do beat this challenge you are pretty close to not being human. I have never cried during an anime, yet this show didn't take long to keep throwing my emotions back and forth until I could no longer hold it back. I ...

    for all the people that have no heart out there, THIS ANIME WIL GIVE YOU A HEART.
    All of my friends say that i have no heart. Well, they say i have a cold potato heart to be exact. After I finished this anime, it really hit my cold heart. I was crying like a baby. This show will really hit your mind to care about people, and you will look at life in different sorts of ways. You really do grow to love the characters. Other than one. I don't know what his name is but hes is tall ...

    Connections Were Made
    In the first episode, I didn't understand the concept until the last two minutes, and when it hit me, I started crying... Hard. I realized what was going on, and who exactly these people were, and I thought I found the story of my life, which I did. It's been 2 hours since I finished and I'm still crying, and after I realized the loss within the story, I shouldn't have continued, it made me ...

    I'm not crying, I've just been cutting onions. I'm making a lasagna....for one.
    MENMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    What this show manages to do in just 11 episodes... I can't even put it to words. You will feel every emotion on the feels-train, from engine to caboose. I managed to make it through 10 episodes without breaking down. However, that last episode...the emotions just keep coming and coming until they burst through my resolve. I dare you to do better.

    If you are looking for a ...

    Don't Watch This Anime
    If you want to keep any shred of masculinity you have left, and any small ounce of doubt that you could cry over a cartoon, don't watch this anime. Your heart could be made of stone, iron, you name it, Anohana will destroy you.

    Mind you, it's ability to make you crawl into a fetal position and soak yourself in salty tears shouldn't be the show's only quality. After all, Anohana only ...

    Yes, it needs another 5 star
    I was recommended to watch this show simply because "OMG this show will you make you cry so hard!" And yes, it delivered. It delivered splendidly. But this anime is so much more than some tear jerker. So much so that I had to come write my own review. And as you can see, I don't write a lot of them. Anohana had me caring for the characters within one episode, and dying to see the conclusion by the ...

    Menma!!!!!! NO!!!!!!!!!!!
    The God of Anime Romance cried once again. It really made me cry a couple of times :(
    I really wanted Menma and Jinta to be together. The anime really touched my heart and made me cry. For those who haven't cried because of an anime. I really recommend this.
    I wish i can find another anime like this. If somebody knows one, please go to my profile and write a note or something like that. Thanks

    A Beautiful Story About Friendship...
    So after watching this series and the movie, I couldn't help but join THE FEELS train. I cried and choke at the goodbye scene. People lingering on memories and regrets. Sometimes they even blame themselves on "Why did it end like this?" or "What if things happen differently?". This series captivate how they overcome their wounds and convert the bad memories into good. Saying goodbye is the hardest ...

    Bring a box of tissues
    This show accomplishes in 11 episodes what took Clannad 44 ep's. Not to say either show was bad; the opposite is true. Anohana gives us a novel exposition to the world of grieving, with some supernatural pretense for plot's sake. The emotion rides high a midst the character interactions and plot development, and by the end of it you'll be right there with the other characters experiencing the ...
