  • Life changing and beautiful
    Anohana is one of the most amazing things I've ever seen, its so life touching and it makes you realize how important friends really are and how easily you could lose one. No matter how many times I watch this series I always cry at the end, please take the time to watch this series its short but amazing and you'll love it.

  • Just beautiful... But we need...
    The anime characters are too cool every one of them. The story is just so amazing but sad. When the anime ends my speech was lost for some minutes and this so emotional. BUT we just need an OVA or something like this to show us what happened next or if it can't be that just an pure OVA. It's recommencement by me to those who like emotional scenes and like pokemon

  • A good show but......
    This show exceeds in most things and was an interesting view but, it kind of drags it's feet and likes to punch you in the face. Why? Because you need to cry. I have never been found of ghost stories but they handle their supernatural elements fine ut in the end everything was just above mediocre and a tad boring here and there. Don't get me wrong i enjoyed but, i don't believe it's quite the gem ...

    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 ...

  • A nice edition for those with emotions
    "The more things change, the more things stay the same. Boundaries shift, new players step in, but power always finds a place to rest it's head. We fought and bled alongside the Rus-" wait a minute! Sorry, sorry. Too much Modern Warfare...

    An emotionally moving anime has very commonly been associated with romance and indeed many of the well-known emotional anime have lots of romances in them ...

    One you *have* to watch
    11 episodes of beautiful storytelling; I love how the overall story unfolds throughout the series, and they tell it in a way that makes sense. This is the first anime to ever make me cry at the ending. Everything that happens really gives a sense of the definite "what could have been" if that one thing had not happened. This is one of my most recommended things to watch.

    Beautiful, absolutely must watch
    This anime deals heavily with the concept of life after death, and the scars that are left on the living long after a loved one has died. I came very close to tears, which is saying a lot because i almost never cry over anime/tv/books. This is one of the few that has made me do exactly that, as well as feel a profound sadness. Growing up, growing apart, and coping with life are all themes covered ...

    Beautiful Show, Many Tears Shed
    I came into this show knowing it would be a sad one, but I didn't know what the story would be. All I wanted was for something emotional, and beautiful. Something that could make me cry and this really delivered. Watching the characters progress, yet return to the past was really moving to me. I really do love this anime.

    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 ...

    Amazingly Beautiful...
    This show was so beautiful and is a sad story but once you get to the end... tears start to flow... I don't know why but I enjoy anime's that make me cry... like Toradora and The Pet Girl of Sakurasou and many others that just make the feels come as shivers down my spine and tears down my face...
