  • An Anime With Heart!
    Anohana is a needle in a haystack kind of series. Anohana is filled with heartbreak, tragic pasts, deep emotions, a bit of humor, and seemingly everlasting friendships. That vague description may seem like it makes for a typical whatever anime, but you're in for a ride with this one. The ending will seriously make you feel like you watched far too many Humane Society commercials.

  • Beautiful and brilliant.
    I was unsure about this when I clicked on it and within 15 mins I was hooked. Spent the rest of the day watching the complete series. Great characters and a wonderful writing. Goddamn it, it brought a tear to my eye at the final episode. Never had that happen for an anime. Definitely gonna spread the word on this one.

  • I Couldn't Stop Myself
    I saw a positive YouTube review for this, and thought I would give it a shot. Heck. It was 9:00 on a Saturday night. I had nothing better to do, so I thought I could kill a few hours before bed. I. Watched. Every. Episode. I don't even like this slice of life stuff. I'm all about action, fantasy, suspense, mystery... But this... The characters had a TON of depth and a TON of development. The plot ...

  • It's pretty much perfection
    I have very few complaints about this anime and the few quibbles are so small that I feel silly and nitpick-y even mentioning them.

    This is a satisfying anime from start to finish with a final episode and final scene that have tears streaming down your face. Beautiful, well-earned tears. I loved it! And I'm so happy I took the time to watch it. It's a great, well-paced story that's short ...

  • This will be (is) a classic!
    Great story which will take you through a rollercoaster of emotions! Comedy, drama, suspense, mystery, etc.

    Each episode kept me in suspense and I looked forward to each episode! This, to me, is a classic and worth having in your personal collection!

  • No other anime can bring these kinds of feels...
    Have you ever cried over an anime? I could of told you that I have never, before I watched this. Be warned, it is depressing in the beginning, but as it goes on, you get to see why everything is the way it is, and the story slowly reveals itself. The art style is great, the animation is great, the characters are developed enough, I really can't think of anything bad about this series. For goodness ...

  • Too Many Tears In So Little Episodes
    When the character cast is this fantastic and the story is this good, and the themes of childhood innocence and growing apart as you grow up and showing your true feelings are this strong, and you just care this much about everything that happens...

    It's a good time. I cried while watching. I cry now that I'm done with it because I'm done with it. If you want to cry, or you want to care, ...

  • I can't handle the emotion!!
    This show makes my heart crack!

    I love how there is a love triangle and how the characters are developed, it really makes you want to be a part of the show. The animation is great, but I think they need some more shading.

    The reason why I did not give a 5/5 is because no show is perfect, this show has some flaws, they call it a slice of life, but the character's dead friend becomes a ghost ...
