  • one of the best drama/slice of life anime
    i don't usually write reviews but when i do i watch slice of life anime's that can make manly men into one of the the biggest crybabies. but for real this was such a good anime it was well started and well executed from my point of view. i just can't stop crying though ;-;

  • Not as tragic as advertized
    Considering that the tragic event is revealed in the first episode, this show is more about healing than being dealt a sudden blow. So it's more uplifting than you'd think judging from a lot of the reviews out there.

    My main gripe with the story is the unrealistic idea that these 16 year olds hold so tenaciously to memories and bonds made when they were 6 friggin' years old. That minor issue ...

  • I love Anohana, and I will never forget it
    Watching Anohana made me sob, even the OP did. Its a good experience seeing how much people can change and go through hardships as they grow older. I hope their friendship never dies! (~˘▾˘)~ I really recommend this, so please watch and sob with me! (ง'̀-'́)ง

  • I cried like 4 times
    Nothing more needs be said really. It's really well done. I actually didn't know Menma was dead until like halfway through the second episode. All the characters were really fleshed out and likeable, especially Jinta... but maybe I'm biased because I fell in love with his design instantly. All in all a good show.

The individual struggles and traumatic experience of each of the members (including Meiko's family) are all brought out into the light after discovering Meiko is ...

    Stupid, Cheesy Soap Opera; Nothing Happens.
    Really quite bad. Padded out with tons of filler. The bulk of the show is long, boring, melodramatic conversations about unrequited love. If you really want to watch this show, watch the first episode, skip the following seven episodes, and watch the last three episodes. You'll like the show a lot more and you'll have missed nothing.

  • All Aboard the Feels Train!!
    I knew what I was getting myself into when I decided to watch this anime. Most of the time, you hear about a story on a list of feels. Whenever you hear about anime that make people cry, this is usually one of the top answers.

    The plot line was delivered pretty early (first episode), so it was interesting to see what they had in store for us for the rest of the series. It's 11 episodes (which ...

  • Loved it, very worth watching!!
    Loved it loved it loved it. A beautiful unique story, great characters, really builds up both of those aspects well. Great pace and sound track too. This is very going on my 'share with other people' list of anime's. If you like slice of life stories you'll love this.

    why do any thing else when you can watch Anohana
    the majority of anime that I watch is action, but I figured it was time to expand on genres. That is where Anohana comes in. After reading about the show it peaked my interest. So I figured I would give at least one episode a shot. As I watched the first few minutes of the show I was not really feeling it after one moment of realization it hit me, I couldn't just stop at one episode, I had to ...
