  • One of the best animes.
    It's romantic and each episode was more tear-jerking than the next, not what everyone thinks it is, but of course, you have to watch it to understand. I loved it and the many sub-plots were intriguing. The characters are so diverse and each girl has their own sub-plot.

  • Good enough to cry over
    This anime was simply amazing, at first I thought each episode had its own story on how he was helping each of the girls but it wasn't which surprised me greatly! I thought it was just going to be like Fruit of Grisaia but once again it acceded my expectations, the artwork wasn't great but the story made up for it. If i had to choose an anime worthy of an award, this will come out as my answer, ...

  • H2O was pretty goood
    This anime was pretty good. Expect i really hated the part were the boys beating up Hayami every single time and she didn't do nothing wrong. They shouldn't blame her because she didn't know nothing was happening when she was little, I also hated the part where Hayami died from a train it brought me to tears. The anime it self was good and i like the ending where she came back.

    Pathetic stereotypical characters that are one dimensional and change to suit a story line that mashes every theme possible .
    Crunchyroll must have gotten paid to stream this nonsensical trash. How this has any positive reviews is beyond me. The story line is all over the place, it tries so hard to cover so many themes which just goes to show you how poor of a story it truly is. It's based on the main characters "reality" while actual events are happening that are so far removed from reality that it makes it seem ...

    Amazing... Best anime I have EVER seen.
    Fanservice aside, this anime is one of the best. But even fanservice is good in an anime; this anime knows how to add it but not overdo it.
    Amazing theme song, great character development... Man, that ending killed me. Best anime I have ever seen. It's too bad it's so short.

    A really touching story with lots of development
    When i first randomly chose this anime, i took an episode to adapt to the art-style, and the first episode or two were not great but, i decided to watch more and i was right to do so because the anime got really, really good, the development of the main characters is so touching to learn each of their stories and the characters themselves, there are so many deep plot twists and it almost had this ...

    Nice story! Really moving
    This is a really nice story about friendship, love, and full of sentiment. Even though there where some things that can really shock you, like boys hitting a girl, or a dumb town blaming a little girl for what her parents did, it was necessary (I guess) for the correct development of the story. A lot of changes during their path in the village make the main characters grow together and develop ...

  • I liked the series overall!
    It's got a surprising number of twists and gut-punches for a show of this type. It starts off kind of predictable and then as the story progresses, it reveals layer after layer of drama without getting too complex. The ending left me pretty satisfied with the tale.

    Skip this if you don't like one-dimensional characters
    If you're the type of person who doesn't like to stop watching a series once you start it and you're on the fence about watching this, I advise you to not start this. Most of the characters are boring, including the lead male. Only a few of the characters can be considered to be two-dimensional, but even then, their second side is bland. The story is definitely not a positive for this ...

  • Bittersweet series (sad but worth watching)
    Overall a good anime. Rated 4 stars instead of 5 due to the way the first half of the series was structured compared to the last half. This show will make you want to punch out an old man, a couple of kids (and their parents), laugh, and cry.

    Spoilers may be included below:

    The first half of the series really felt out of context, even though it's a slice of life genre. We went straight from ...
