  • Love and Hate and Forgiving
    I love the story line of this anime series mostly where Hayami Kohinata is starting to build trust with the village thanks to Takuma Hirose. To me the animation is wonderful even if its 2012 compared to other anime I would say that for an old anime it still got a grate graphic.

    This has been one of my favorite romance anime starting from 2011 my last favorite romance anime was "Myself; ...

  • Lighten the mood for a deep story
    This is very well put to gather story about loss and letting go of things you can't change, looking forward and not dwelling in the past.
    About forgiveness, "Why should the child bare the sins of the father"

    All in all a depressing story with some comedy to lighten the mood a bit.

  • Most dramatic anime I'd ever watched
    I already watched this a year ago. It made me cry. I do not remember why but this was the most dramatic anime I had saw! The story of this anime is great. It is about a girl who is always being tortured by her classmates and neighbors. Try watching it, though it only contains few episodes. Thumbs up for this.

  • footprints in the sand
    this is a truly amazing anime that is different from all the others. this anime really stands out to you because there is a melancholy ( sad yet happy ) ending. this will really stand out because most anime's tend to have happy endings. this is an anime that will bring tears to your eyes.

  • Awesome Anime Series
    I really enjoyed watching this anime and would recommend it to anyone. The story-line is very well layed out and the characters are easy to understand. The anime becomes quite emotional as we see a young boy struggle with his disability of being unable to see.

    The bullying in the school creates a sense of realism which allows us to connect more with the characters. The music fits in well ...

  • Pure beauty its is :)
    This anime is very pure and sweet, i would really recommend it to everyone :)

    Overall the story about the blind Takuma Hirose, he really wants to see which makes him very strong willed and "able to see"
    Everyone in the anime is very nice to him, which makes people think about someone different, not "just the blind boy"
    Its different from most school-animes so its worth it to watch!

    What a deeply touching story
    I see, the theme of this story appeared at the end of story as Hinata said. Eyes of Hirose were the one of his mind which opened when he accepted everything. Actually I didn't want Hayami die that way, but it made Hirose open his eyes. All stories from episode 1 to 11 were like dream given by real Hinata and it became clear when Hirose closed his eyes and his mind retreated to the stage his ...

  • One of the best and most genius anime I seen in a while!
    I won't put any spoilers but this anime had a lot of twists and a very good story line, I really enjoyed it and feel that the author is a genius! I really hope to watch more anime from this author. I hope that you (whoever watches it next) enjoys this as much as I did. Yes, there is a bit of "ecchi" fanservice but it's not throughout the whole anime, so it wasn't displeasing at all for anyone to ...

    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 ...
