    First Anime to Make Me Bawl
    I've seen some great anime before. Many that were action packed and many that touched my heart. Never before have I seen an anime though that was able to make me bawl like a baby. This show is very sweet and tells an amazing story about lost friendships and love. It has a few moments that make you cringe and not every character is all that likable, but it has a much more relatable base of ...

    Tear-jerking.....!!!
    An amazing anime, and my #1!! Sooo sad, but I found it as the sweet kind of sad, you know, the kind of sad that you feel in your gut first and kind of want to laugh/cry? I loved it sooooo much, and highly recommend it!!!

    Touching. A reminder of why I love anime.
    Watching this show was a wonderful experience. Equal parts touching, warm, and funny, it deals with the heartbreak and loneliness of loss. There were a lot of tears shed throughout the series as I reflected on my own losses and the wonderful things which remain in my life. I highly recommend it. Top notch.

    Thank you, Crunchyroll, for another great series.

    Just plain beautiful
    This is one of my absolute favorite anime of all time. Literally. I can hardly describe how it makes me feel. Its humorous, beautiful, dark, depressing, enlightening, uplifting, emotional... its all of those things all wrapped up perfectly in a tight 11 episode package. There is one simple thing that I am upset about with this anime. It has no English dub. Personally I don't care all that much, ...

    *** Feels: The Anime ***
    I was so into the story I watched all of the episodes in a row. I don't think I stopped crying either! It is definitely well made, and all though there are a few plot-holes, you are so immersed in the story you don't even mind.

  • How could anyone who's seen this leave untouched?
    I'm generally a fairly emotional guy, especially around a good story, so it's no surprise when I say I cried several times throughout this story. I didn't really know what to make of the first episode at the time, because I was initially confused about the relationship this white haired young girl had with this adolescent boy. But as it became apparent that she was someone only he could see, and ...

    Anohana:The Tears We Saw That Day
    Okay like wow. This is the first anime i've ever watched on crunchy roll and it seriously left a big impression on me. Now, i never cried before watching something but after learning about what happened to each character after menma died i just got really into it.
    I didn't really cry when i watched it but, i have to say i was teary eyed. Its a first for me.
    If you like stories where they get you ...

  • Super-touching, surprising show
    I was in the mood to watch some anime but didn't want something long or drawn out with a ton of filler episodes. Enter anohana: the perfect show you can watch in just a few days. At first, the characters bugged me a little bit, but I soon completely came to love their quirky backstories and relationships with one another. I absolutely shed a tear or two the last few episodes. Highly recommend! ...

  • Totally worth watching! Awesome!!
    Whoa.. This anime is so good. In the end it brought tears to my eyes and i couldn't believe it was over. I really loved this anime. Would someone recommend some others like this? I've seen Clannad and the after story already too. They were great!
