    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 ...

  • Impossible to forget
    Anohana jumps into the realm of anime that is very atypical. It was sad and yet refreshing. It was calm and yet bold. I've watched hundreds, if not thousands of anime growing up, and this is one of the very few that if you mentioned the name, I would remember immediately what it was. It left a lasting impression on my emotions. A true work of art.

    The story centers itself on the life of a young ...

    Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day
    I'd like to start off by saying, no matter what, you should give Anohana a try. I feel that no mater what genre may be you're favorite, you will end up enjoying this. However, if you're mostly into mech and action and only watch those, this may not be the anime for you. If you love anime with drama and romance, and some comedy, this is perfect for you. Anohana has 11 episodes in total. Although ...

    Anohana: A Touching Story About Overcoming Tragedy
    This is a wonderful anime that explores the effects of tragedy, and how to cope with loss. It doesn’t use the power of tragedy and death to make you cry — it uses the power of nostalgia to move you. While these emotions are not as intense as Clannad After Story’s, I guarantee that you will cry many times over the course of this anime. Overall, this anime is great, beautiful, and definitely worth ...

    ugh jUST ugh my heart mayn
    I did not expect the floodstorm of water that seemed to empty themselves from the ducts of my eyes. Like naw dude. The concept is simple and cute, making sure to drop in the perfect amount of sweet childhood nostalgia to supplement. However, when it wants to pack a punch, it packs a punch. I did not expect at all for an ending to a shoujo-ish anime to be so... unforeseen. I mean, you have to know ...

    It got me. And it was beautiful.
    It made me cry. I know that a lot of people have said that already, but it's true. This anime really grabbed me more than any I have seen so far. Seeing the characters tear up made me do the same every time. I don't know how they did it.
    Really good anime...

    WARNING: Watching will cause you to cry uncontrollably
    This anime had always been on my 'watch eventually' list and I am so so so so so so glad I finally watched it. This emotional rollercoaster is one of the best I have ever seen. I don't think I have ever cried longer than I have for this anime (except maybe for Angel Beats). I am so incredibly impressed with the way this anime concluded. I was impressed the whole way through but the ending hit me ...

  • If This Doesn't Touch Your Heart, Nothing Will.
    I can sum up this story in a few positive words: beautiful, touching, sweet, and emotional.

    Anohana is the beautiful story of a group of friends that have yet to overcome their grief from the accident that killed one of their friends several years ago. Each character has a unique personality, and this is especially portrayed in their different reactions to their deceased friend. While ...

As the story continues you find that the main character has become a shut in that never leaves his house and lost most of his old childhood friends.

  • You need to watch this. It's a must.
    Let me just say that I watched this anime a while ago, but while cleaning up my queue I felt a sudden urge to write a review for it.

    First off, let me just admit that I'm a sucker for emotional plots, and I have no embarrassment admitting that I easily cry for many anime series that I watch. However this particular one kicked my eyes into gear, because not only did I begin crying from before ...
