    Good Series, Not Great
    I enjoyed the series to a point but the last couple of episodes really brought me down. The ending really felt forced and, while it tied up loose ends, was (in my opinion, of course) a rough and unnecessary way to wrap up the plot. With a different ending, I probably would have given it 4 stars. I need to go find something happy to watch now.

    this needs a season 2.
    at first i thought it's gonna be a typical anime, a lil bit of ecchi stuff, but as it goes deeper, more mature serious plot is taking place, i love the plot personally, i loved the ending as well.... wished this had a season 2 though

    Short but bittersweet
    This is also the first anime that made me cry. It was very heartwarming and tragic at the same time. I enjoyed watching this, I wish there was another series, seeing how the ending turned out. All in all I enjoyed this because everyone decided to open themselves up to one another. I think anime's like this teach you some valuable things, I enjoy those anime's the most.

    Overall I Loved It So Much I Cried
    At first glance I thought the title was a bit odd, but since it was based off of a visual game, it's not so unusual. I gave it a chance when I saw the description about a boy who was blind and his emotional struggle to overcome his mother's death.

    The storyline is jumpy and can drive you up a wall in places with the comedy and joke placement, but it's not bad overall if you can handle some ...

    Story of youth: Love and Loss
    This turns out be quite the psychological anime show. I really enjoyed it. It was hard to get into at first but once you get through the first few episodes one begins to get comfortable and settles in.

    If I had compare this show to anything I would think along the lines of M. Night Shyamalan's early films like Sixth Sense (especially in regards to Hirose's condition). It's the kind of show that ...

    Live for the future never look back
    When I watched the first episode of this series I thought it was going to be lame. After getting a few episodes in I got hooked in the story. What I didn't understand is why was there like 3 or 4 major families in this small village in an urban area like that. Also how did the Hitose family have so much power... I did not fully understand the complexity of his family. Overall this was an amazing ...

    Stunning, Brilliant.
    This anime is by far the best love story I've ever seen. First anime to make me cry and give me chills. Everything ties in at the end, and it makes you so upset. The ending is the best part. I wish I could find other's like this. It's definitely one of a kind.

  • WHY MUST YOU LIE CUTE COVER
    Do not let the title fool you, I loved this anime with a passion. It was beautiful not only in style but the story as well. But is you are looking for that cute high school silly drama and romance, turn back now.

    This was an emotional rollercoaster from episode 1. They do an amazing job with everything in here. But if getting your emotions jerked around doesn't sound like your kind of fun I ...

  • The random button picked this, the reviews made me watch it
    IT'S NOT ABOUT SWIMMING! despite what one would gleen from the title and picture. What it is about is a tale of love, familial obligation and being bound by the past. The characters are interesting and diverse and the story is intriging. It' hard to praise this anime without giving too much away, but the animation is smooth aand fluid, but that's to be expected from an anime not dependent ...

  • Break out the tissues!!
    This anime is going to make you feel so many feelings. You're going to love/hate/question so much after watching this anime, and no it's not about mermaids!! I thought the same thing as so many before me, that this anime would be teeming with mermaids. Despite the fact that it isn't particularly mermaid centric it is still quite enjoyable. There is a little bit of sexual tension, but what anime ...
