  • One of the saddest anime ever.
    Anohana is probably the saddest anime I ever watched! All of the lead characters are likable, deep and interesting. The story is tear-jerking and original. The music and and animation are just wonderful. Episode 11 is probably one of my favorite anime episode ever. Just watch it!

  • BEAUTIFUL. I CRIED!!!!!!!
    So, this is a show by A-1 Pictures, a well known studio with a not so good lineup. However, they have a few gems in the pile of trash. This is one of them.

    So, story wise, it really feels fresh and new. Well, theres no manga or crap to base it off of so, YAAAAY!!! But the story is very well written. But if I say anything, it will leave major spoilers, so just go watch for yourself. The show is ...

  • Unexpectedly Heavy, But Overall Quite Wonderful
    I started watching this series, because I am a fan of Miyu Irino, and I was completely unprepared for the emotional experience that this anime entails. I couldn't stop watching it and ended up finishing it in three days. I cried during most of the episodes, and I'm usually not an easy crier. The characters have many complex layers that we get to see melt away as the series progresses, and the ...

  • Have A box of tissues nearby
    okay, This anime is going to make you go through the emotion spectrum. Like get ready to laugh, be mad, disgusted and cry all in the same show. Ive been crying for about 15 minutes now and trust me, you will cry. I don't care how many sad anime's you've watched and haven't cried. This will make you cry.

  • I Can't Give This Enough Stars
    I am a grown man and, while some animes manage to make me shed a tear, this one had my bawling at least three times. It's only eleven episodes, but that's only because your heart wouldn't be able to handle any more. I cannot recommend this show enough to people who want to pass the "manliness" test, because they WILL fail!

  • A tale of friendship and bittersweet memories~
    Anohana (both the anime and live-action film) are binge-worthy! I would watch them over and over again to share with friends, and possibly end up crying each time. An excellent find!

    Jinta believes he is delusional when his childhood friend, Menma, appears before him. Some years ago, Jinta and his friends were hanging out outdoors, when Menma slipped off a steep cliff into the nearby stream and ...

  • Hits you with All the feels
    I've been watching anime for probably as many years as anime has been in the US, and I don't remember an anime hitting me with all the feels nearly every episode. You feel for every character, something you don't see that often. Perhaps the least fleshed out character towards the end has a reveal that put them on even footing with how affected by the events that damaged everyone. My only regret ...
