  • Drama that will give you the feels
    I'm always looking for the next show that will really give me an emotional response. It is rare I find a show with moments that can genuinely get me to tear up and often it is for but a moment based on the situation On that quest, I searched for lists of "Saddest anime" and this title kept coming up on the list.

    Anohana is about a group of six friends as children who grew apart over the ...

  • Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day - A (somewhat) serious review.
    So a little backstory on my watching of this show, I watched it during the spring of this year (2016) during a pretty rough phase in my life. At the time, I hadn't really watched any shows that were relatively serious/had heavy themes so what a way to start it out right?

    One of the saddest anime ever.
    Anohana is probably the saddest anime I ever watched! All of the lead characters are likable, deep and interesting. The story is tear-jerking and original. The music and and animation are just wonderful. Episode 11 is probably one of my favorite anime episode ever. Just watch it!

  • BEAUTIFUL. I CRIED!!!!!!!
    So, this is a show by A-1 Pictures, a well known studio with a not so good lineup. However, they have a few gems in the pile of trash. This is one of them.

    So, story wise, it really feels fresh and new. Well, theres no manga or crap to base it off of so, YAAAAY!!! But the story is very well written. But if I say anything, it will leave major spoilers, so just go watch for yourself. The show is ...

  • Unexpectedly Heavy, But Overall Quite Wonderful
    I started watching this series, because I am a fan of Miyu Irino, and I was completely unprepared for the emotional experience that this anime entails. I couldn't stop watching it and ended up finishing it in three days. I cried during most of the episodes, and I'm usually not an easy crier. The characters have many complex layers that we get to see melt away as the series progresses, and the ...

  • Have A box of tissues nearby
    okay, This anime is going to make you go through the emotion spectrum. Like get ready to laugh, be mad, disgusted and cry all in the same show. Ive been crying for about 15 minutes now and trust me, you will cry. I don't care how many sad anime's you've watched and haven't cried. This will make you cry.

  • I Can't Give This Enough Stars
    I am a grown man and, while some animes manage to make me shed a tear, this one had my bawling at least three times. It's only eleven episodes, but that's only because your heart wouldn't be able to handle any more. I cannot recommend this show enough to people who want to pass the "manliness" test, because they WILL fail!
