    Tragically Beautiful, One of my Favorite Anime Series of All-Time
    Every time "Aoi Shiori" begins to play during the opening title sequence, I am reminded of how wonderful and touching this series is. It's wonderfully written, has fantastic animation, and the characters are all tragically-beautiful. I can safely say that you WILL get emotionally invested in each of the characters, which is part of the reason why this anime is so great. The series doesn't fail to ...

  • Great character writing and art
    Memorable, vivid characters that will stick in your brain. I cried a lot... but it's not overly sad, it's happy too. I loved it. It's not a saccharine sweet show, it has a slightly gritty realism. Male, female, child and adult characters are not neglected or 2-dimensional. Just about every character in the show has an individual story arc that is meaningful and interesting, which is an impressive ...

    I never thought I'd cry THIS hard at this show.
    From acclaimed screenwriter Mari Okada comes a heartwarming story of love, forgiveness, and resolution. Combine that with brilliant voice acting from Ai Kayano, who truly brings Menma to life, as well as gorgeous animation from PA Works, and Ano Hana is guaranteed to warm your heart and make you both cry AND smile.

    This anime is so AMAZING
    Just watch it....in one sitting. You won't regret it. You will tear up at least once. It's so beautiful, sad, heartwarming, and touching. Bring a box of tissues. The characters become relatable as you watch this. I totally see why this anime gets so much praise. Truly a masterpiece.

    An absolute masterpiece.
    I don't always write reviews, but when I do it's usually about a masterpiece or a complete and utter flop. Thankfully, Anohana is a superlative example of the former; a modern legend of anime. It's a brief glimpse in to the world of a small group of friends who have experienced tragic circumstances but must realize when to move on with life, and when to pause to grieve. It shows us to embrace the ...

    A great story of what could have been
    Its been said that there is nothing sadder or sweeter than what could have been. Anohana is a story about the difficulties of letting go, of love and loss, and a stark reminder that we should never take those around us for granted. Anohana is also about a few fortunate individuals who somehow get a second chance and find that life is about living and how it goes on, bad or good, is up to you. If ...

  • Great anime that will make you feel a lot
    At first glance it looks like a typical romantic school days anime, however you will be pleasantly surprised with what you find in this series. It has its sweet lovey dovey moments but balances them perfectly with friendship, life lessons, and the struggles of loss. It combines emotions that everyone feels and puts them together in a creative way. I don't usually cry during shows but I was choked ...
