  • One of the most touching stories I've witnessed.
    I wasn't sure what to expect when I started this show. I read the short description, but didn't think too much about it. It was recommended to me after saying I enjoyed Your Lie In April. I had no idea what I would be in for.

    Each character is completely understandable, as in you can relate to them. Finally, when it gets down to it, you will be drug through the entire spectrum of emotions. When ...

  • One of the Best Drama Anime Out There
    WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD :)

    I have wiped my eyes of the tears that have been lingering there since the start of the final episode of Ano Hana, debatably one of the most emotionally driven, down to Earth, and genuinely sad anime I’ve ever encountered. Sitting down to watch this anime is not a temporary respite from school or work or boredom, it’s a commitment from school or work or boredom. While ...

  • Heartbreaking and Beautiful
    Realistic portrayal of people who have grown apart as they've grown up. All of the characters have an internal struggle that is holding them back in some way. I don't want to give too much away, but this anime is simply beautiful. If you want something that will make you cry your eyes right out of your face - this is the one!

  • A wonderfully believable anime
    I watched this after hearing the ending song (kind of a backwards process :P). It looked good so I started watching it. After delaying for a few weeks I got into watching the next episodes at a much faster rate, as the story was so intriguing. I was very happy with this anime, it had believable characters, a good story line, and a touching and complete ending. By that I mean with this anime, I ...

    A roller coaster of emotions
    I don't even know where to begin when it comes to this anime, from the first episode until the last I felt as if I just wanted to cry. You experience a roller coaster of emotions as you click from one episode to the next, Anohana is so relatable in terms of how people deal with the death of someone close to them. Up until our game addicted high school drop out Jintan reunited the "Super Peace ...

    It had potential, but...
    It had potential, but turned out totaly uninteresting. I'm so sick and tired of series where everything turns out fine 2-3 minutes before the end of the last episode ends. If they had let her appear gradualy for the rest of the gang. If she had been reborn and then it had been an episode 12... It would have saved it for me. To sum it up: It's all about his feeling for her and they drag it out, and ...

    A Masterfully Crafted, Emotional Story
    I'm still recovering from crying all through the final episode and won't write much, but just know that all the top reviews have the right of it. Anohana is a masterfully crafted anime that is able to tell its story in just 11 episodes and will leave you feeling very satisfied (if a bit of an emotional wreck).

    Highly recommended, you won't regret watching!

  • A really nice anime.
    This anime is one of the best I've seen. The story and the characters are very interesting. Its very dramatic and the music is some of the greatest I've seen in an anime like this. I guarantee you will like it if you value plot and character development in anime.

    To put it simply, its a good anime.

    A Must See Series For Everyone
    This series was simply amazing. While I originally thought 11 episodes would be too short (a problem I've had with some series), by the end of it all, I felt content with the length and even felt that any longer would've been unnecessary. Every episode has a purpose and no time is really wasted on unnecessary filler. Characters and stories are beautifully written and takes no prisoners in the ...

    Anohana: The show that will destroy you at 2:00 AM
    I am not even able to write a full review of this show. I can't find enough words to say, or I just have too many that I could say. Truthfully I am just writing this message so I can give it a 5 star rating. If you ever are in the mood to get into a train wreck...then this will show you exactly what it feels like. Definitely one of my favorite slice of life/romance anime. Please watch this show!
