    This anime is one of the ones that I knew going into it, I was probably going to leave in tears. I was definitely right haha. The plot of this anime is really terrific and really stands out among other slice of life animes. This is more what I'd call a "Plotted slice of life". Sure it's a ...

  • Easily my favorite so far (I love the feels)
    This anime is easily my favorite so far (I've been watching anime a couple years fairly religiously). You will cry. If you're like me, you'll shed at least a couple tears pretty much every episode. I've never seen so many emotions portrayed so perfectly like that. Makes you think. A lot. Which is good. Then there's also the distinct nostalgia because it makes you reflect on your own childhood. At ...

  • Second time watching it, but still feels the same
    Great characters, well-portrayed and nuanced. Not really a coming-of-age story, but more coping with and moving on from tragedy. For the most part, everyone has a childhood, regardless of how long or brief it may have seemed, and most likely a few friends who were there along the way, making this series easily relatable. It's also likely that the older you are, the more you'll find to connect to ...

  • A unique prespective on grief.
    Anohana excels at something that's quite rare in the anime medium, a character driven plot. Often times in an anime there is always those few characters you don't really care about because lets be honest they're just there to fill some archetype quota. Anohana is different in that the entire story is driven by it's characters interactions with each other and their various ways of dealing with ...

  • Anohana ruined my life- would recommend
    It's not hard to make me cry; I'm not exactly stoic, but I can't remember the last time I sobbed so hard for so long. This anime is a rollercoaster of emotions- anger, jealousy, envy, loss, and guilt. Every member of the Super Peace Busters blames themself for what happened to Menma five years before.

    And yet there's this unstoppable force of joy, love, and hope that is Menma, who can even make ...

  • One of the saddest anime
    Anohana has a simple story but tear wrenching scenes. Some people can relate to the character and the adventures they go on. The characters are amazing in every way. There's some drama but it adds to the story. This is one anime that does not just revolve around 1 or 2 characters but all. Of course there's your mains, but they show every back story so you know everyone's past. This is THE best ...

  • Master piece hits you right in the feels
    Man what an amazing anime actually watched this all in one day. Im pretty mad that I watched this so quick . I thought this anime was going to be bad but honestly this is one of the best anime I have watched in a longggg time. Love all the characters how they all had their personal problems that they couldn't forget because of that day and how they resolved their issues. Truly a master piece.

  • A True Masterpiece..
    I have seen plenty of anime that have pulled on my heart strings or made my eyes water, but Anohana is on a whole new level. This show brought me to full blow tears (which has never happened to me before). I love this show so much its absolutely beautiful in every way and I challenge anyone to watch this show and try not to cry because you can't unless you are Satan.

  • I'm not crying! I just... got something in my eyes...
    From the very first episode you will be captivated if you love dramas and 'slice of life' animes. This show has it all:
    Sometimes you're laughing.
    Sometimes you're worried for the characters
    Sometimes you get....something caught in your eye ("I TOLD YOU I'M NOT CRYING")
    It's not a very long show so it's quick to watch and it will leave you with a good feeling in your heart. All of the ...

  • Be ready to cry. Seriously.
    Seriously my favorite anime of all time. It is beautifully done, and you really get to understand every single character in just 11 episodes. But seriously, be ready to cry. I cried nearly every episode, and the ending had me sobbing for a solid 20 minutes. I would HIGHLY reccommend
