  • Ghoust, old love, drama, fireworks, and closure are the main story you'll find here and a confusing "why did you let them think I was crazy this whole time" kind of question in the background.
    Some may be emotionally wrecked by this series, I've seen sader, not to diminish it, but this is a good and happy series full of reunited friends, old love, second chances (the main character starts out as a high school drop out who stays in his room at his dad's house), and closure. Kind of sounds like high school reunion and it kind of is like that, but seriously any good otaku keeping a list ...

  • Finally, a drama that isn't plagued by childish decison making
    This came recommended by MAL which had had a pretty good track record; and still does. The art and character designs are great, but that’s to be expected when there are no spectacular action sequences. Each character is distinct and easy to recognize. One thing I want to praise about this anime first and foremost is how realistically it plays out. At no point do the characters engage in the poor ...

  • I watch, I cry, I live, I love!
    Anohana present an emotional connection between Menma and her friends. Her disappearance broke my heart into tears and could not stop crying. I love what this anime give me, an emotion. That is why I can't stop shedding tears because I love Anohana and also Menma.

    Young Adults in the Processes of Healing a Scared Past
    Anahola is anime about a girl who only the main character can see. From the get-go viewers learn that this girl has died many years ago when main 4 characters were still children.

    Now the main character tries to Bring together his old friends again and reconnect with them, closing up wounded chapter on the death of Anohana, and moving on from the past.

    Being very lighthearted, I highly ...

  • Amazing and Worth the Feels
    This show knows what it is doing with the reveals. It goes a long way with setting up these characters and breaking all stereotypes against them. Guilt is shared between all of them, but not in a conventional way.

    One issue completely ruined the show for me...
    Actual rating: 1.5 stars. NOTE: THIS IS A SPOILER REVIEW.
    (This has been edited and elongated to clarify my thoughts, so at least one person won't hate me and dismiss me as a troll or contrarian for its own sake.)

    Sorry if you had massive feels from the show, and you're offended by the low rating, but I'll explain why I couldn't like this show. I can't really justify such a strong ...

  • All aboard the Feels Train!
    As a hardcore anime, I can not stress how amazing this series is. Beautiful animation, beautiful story, beautiful characters. This is by far the most beautiful series I have ever seen. This story does an incredible job of letting you connect with these characters on an emotional level in very few episodes.

  • Lay down, try not to cry, cry anyways.
    It took me a long time to watch this. It was recommended to me based off my love of Orange's manga. But after watching Your Lie in April, I had a hard time putting myself in a vulnerable situation again.

    However, I'm very glad I did. I knew from the beginning what was going to happen, and watched it progress... and still cried!

    It was a beautifully done show, with some unexpected twists of ...

  • Anime: Prepare to cry edition
    I'm a huge fan of anime series with the feels. I love the way they make me feel (very sad), because they make feel human. Too often are our feelings repressed, it feels good to have a show to get lost in and just let them all burst out.

    Anohana will make you laugh, and it will make you cry. As a fan of sad anime series, Anohana has been on my radar for quite some time now. I just finished ...
