    This anime will definitely make you cry!
    This show was such a sweet and sad one....it made me cry at the end. The opening and ending songs did not help either, but it contributed to the sadness of the story. I highly recommend you watch it if you are into tear jerking shows

  • Must Watch Anime!!!!
    Heart warming... This anime is by far one of the most touching and eloquently made pieces of art that I have ever seen. The plot is interesting, the characters are certainly slice-of-life, and the heart-aches are real. MUST SEE THIS

    Beautiful! Will please all but the most hardened synics.
    I was impressed when The Girl Who Leapt Through Time made me tear up a bit towards the end, but after a few viewings, the tears stopped coming. Anohana brought tears to my eyes several times, and I was a weepy snotty mess on three separate occasions.
    I'm glad to say that this isn't one of those shows that just happened to push one of my buttons; in fact I'd say that the buttons ...

  • One word: Beautiful
    Watch it. You won't regret it. This one made me cry like a baby - and I wasn't even ashamed that I wept. If you've ever experienced death of a friend in youth, you'll see how real this story is. The confusion. The regrets. The anger. The shame. All of it, so griping and completely human. This isn't just an anime. It's a work of cinematic art in every respect.

    A great drama and a must watch
    All I can really say is this ones like Grave of Fireflies, extremely good, well written, good voice acting, great interaction between characters BUT it's going to make you cry. So its worth watching, but keep a box of Kleenex handy!

    Better get those tissues ready
    This show set the bar for dramas. Following closely behind Grave of Fireflies, Anohana is honestly one big tear-jerker. Especially towards the end. This show depicts how the loss of one girl can pull friends who've strayed so far from each other back together and finally move on with their respective lives. I highly recommend to anyone looking for a very deep plot packed with drama. 5/5 is all I ...

  • Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day Review
    All-in-all if your nose isn't red by the end of the series from blowing it so much you have a problem. This is a rare but amazing anime. Anime like this dont come around alot so i hope everyone enjoyed it as much as i did. It's crazy how much a anime can be so heart gripping and make you sad/crying one minute and next smiling or maybe laughing depending on how you took it. There is nothing to ...

    Do you have a heart of stone?
    My wife says I have a heart made of stone, and she is pretty much right on. However THIS anime must be impossible to hold back your emotions and tears. Sure, emotions and tears do not make a story great. So, what makes this story great? Despite the emotions and tears, this really is a feel good anime. This story takes a hard look at our humanity and you immediately get it. You identify ...

    Don't Watch This Anime
    If you want to keep any shred of masculinity you have left, and any small ounce of doubt that you could cry over a cartoon, don't watch this anime. Your heart could be made of stone, iron, you name it, Anohana will destroy you.

    Mind you, it's ability to make you crawl into a fetal position and soak yourself in salty tears shouldn't be the show's only quality. After all, Anohana only ...

    Such a great story. Must watch
    Personally, Anohana, was one of my favorite animes. This was the first anime that ever made me cry. I fell in love with this. I couldn't stop watching, unfortunately there were only 11 episodes. The main character, Menma brought all of her old friends together again. The group of friends (Jintan, Tsuruko, Poppo, Yukiatsu, Anaru) really loved and missed Menma since she died and they all drifted ...
