    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 ...

  • Something u would have to watch once
    I really liked this anime. It shows that one can effect a group of people throughout the years. Even if they act normal, the years they build up that sorrow and sadness will be shown at some point. This anime had me in tears here and there, but it's a sweet anime, among friends and that love. Never got bored with it, Ugh T-T I give this 7/10

  • 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 ...
