  • I cried throughout the series.
    My friend told me I'd be a wreck after watching this. I think he was right. This anime is amazing and beautiful and just great. It was worth my time.

  • i cannot praise this show enough
    Watching this anime probably had me crying more than i have ever cried in my whole life. The characters feel so real, and you can relate to at least one if not every one of them. this show strikes so many emotions, desperation, frustration, fleeting happiness even. I would recommend this to literally anyone. I would tell a complete stranger to watch this show, and everybody else that has seen this ...

    The most painful thing I've seen since Clannad After Story
    I've only just now seen this, so I'm a bit behind the curve, but this has become my new favorite series. Anohana is the most beautifully painful story I've ever experienced. Anyone who hasn't seen this has no excuse, this story is a perfect example of how powerful anime can be as an art form.

  • Wonderful anime, great story!
    This anime grabbed me from the beginning. The story unfolds with each episode as you learn more about each character and how events from their past stayed with them. And the characters experience growth in only 11 short episodes. I found myself rooting for each character in different ways. Another reviewer (StoneRama) commented that the anime got self-indulgent at the end and I agree that there ...

    Incredible Expression of da Feelz
    Wow. Anohana is defiantly a slow starter, but once you get into it, it's impossible to stop. The music choice is just beautiful, and the animation is great as well. Besides the basics, the plot is fantastic. You get attached to the characters and share their emotions as the story progresses. If you're a fan of Clannad or Angel Beats, I'm positive you'd enjoy this series. Not only is it a ...

    Glance at your past, but look to the future
    Tender. The cover art for this series is exactly what you need to picture while watching this series. Losing friendships, and each individual going with there own struggles. Makes a person retrace their steps but makes them hopeful for the future

    Oh my god. Baaaaaaaw
    This anime will absolutely carve your heart out. I blasted through it in one night. ;_;

    My only critique is that it got a little self-indulgent towards the end with everyone like breaking down in tears over everything, but that's a minor twitch in an otherwise immensely heartfelt show.

    Too Beautiful and Heartwarming to Pass Up
    Everything about this anime just oozes beauty. The atmosphere brought upon by the animation and the moods created by the music. Although the beginning is slow, it calls for it for a show like this, which I didn't mind one bit. The characters are truly amazing, and you can really feel the emotion when they talk or think to themselves. I was not expecting what this show was going to be, it turned ...

    Tear Jerker ~ Cute and Touching
    If you watched this anime and didnt cry at least once, I dont think you are human. This anime had you pitying the main character as soon as it started, then you slowly begin to pity the rest of the characters too. This was the first anime to make me cry. I believe if you watch this anime you will love where the story takes you and the end is a tear jerker! \( ; _ ; )/
