    WARNING: Watching will cause you to cry uncontrollably
    This anime had always been on my 'watch eventually' list and I am so so so so so so glad I finally watched it. This emotional rollercoaster is one of the best I have ever seen. I don't think I have ever cried longer than I have for this anime (except maybe for Angel Beats). I am so incredibly impressed with the way this anime concluded. I was impressed the whole way through but the ending hit me ...

  • If This Doesn't Touch Your Heart, Nothing Will.
    I can sum up this story in a few positive words: beautiful, touching, sweet, and emotional.

    Anohana is the beautiful story of a group of friends that have yet to overcome their grief from the accident that killed one of their friends several years ago. Each character has a unique personality, and this is especially portrayed in their different reactions to their deceased friend. While ...

  • SImple yet an Absolutely Perfect
    This show is about a childhood friend who the main character has a strong connection. He sees her ghost and because of that she ahd grown up with him. As the story continues you find that the main character has become a shut in that never leaves his house and lost most of his old childhood friends.

    The show had me crying at the end. It is so happy but sad at the same time. You fall in love with ...

    You need to watch this. It's a must.
    Let me just say that I watched this anime a while ago, but while cleaning up my queue I felt a sudden urge to write a review for it.

    First off, let me just admit that I'm a sucker for emotional plots, and I have no embarrassment admitting that I easily cry for many anime series that I watch. However this particular one kicked my eyes into gear, because not only did I begin crying from before ...

  • Absolutely Lovely!!!
    This anime by far is one of my absolute favorites. It is just so damn cute. Although, it is also so emotional and get's you really thinking. I love it so much and I don't have a single regret of wasting my whole day watching and finishing it. I love how different each individual character is in their own way. I also love how sweet and loving Menma is. Oh, and of course! The plot of this anime is ...

    da feels r real in dis
    I suggest you bring tissues, more tissues, and more tissues. Unless your a cold-blooded person, with no emotions at all, you will cry. In this anime, you will be on the edge of your seats, cliffhanger after cliffhanger. And you won't even want to skip the theme song. <3

    Tears, Tears, and More Tears
    This series will leave you hanging right until the very end, when it delivers a blow so final, that full grown men and women will cry like the smallest of children. This mature show is not for the faint of heart, and be ready to have leaky eyes at least once in every episode. Without spoiling the show, the ending is probably the sweetest yet saddest that I have ever seen.

    Heart breaking show!
    this show is so touching it will make you cry and feel their pain. This is the best show so far that got me to cry this much and when I mean cry I meant each episode made me cry or have your eyes watery so be prepared if your willing to give this show a try

    EMOTIONAL ROLLERCOASTER!!!
    If you don't like crying when watching movies or anything like that, DO NOT WATCH THIS ANIME!!! This anime has managed to masterfully develop its characters in a mere 11 episodes, and makes you relate to all of their problems!! In this short 11 episode series, this anime has made me laugh, cry, be weirded out, and more. If you liked Clannad, you will absolutely love this anime.

  • Touching Story and Great Characters
    One of my friends recommended I watched this show. He said he cried all the manly tears of sadness. I watched the first episode with him and then stopped there. I finally returned to the series and I am very glad I did.
    I absolutely loved this show. The way the series handled the emotions was absolutely fantastic. I definitely felt the impact of the characters feelings and emotions and by the ...
