    Straightforward Romance
    I've watched this anime several times around when it came out and again when, to my pleasant surprise, it came onto crunchyroll. I usually don't rewatch anime or write reviews, but this series is probably my favorite romance anime of all time.

    What's to love about this series? It's a breathe of fresh air from most romance anime that's filled with harems, half-assed relationships and has more ...

    Short and Sweet. Very good.
    I love romance in anime, and this show is pretty much just that. Anime in general has a lot of extra stuff added on to the core plot. Lots of side-characters, subplots, etc. that can drag a show on for many episodes. While I like that, and enjoy countless shows that do that, this show is a nice break from all that added filler. Just 6 episodes of the core plot, nothing else. I really liked this ...

    A Lesson On Time's Value
    Hantsuki is, in essence, a straightforward romance. There are many things that I could say with all honesty were not the greatest, but all of that is overshadowed heavily by the depth of every one of the few characters paired with the literary feel of the entire story. Watching is an experience that feels akin to seeing a book be written from start to finish, in all of the best possible ...

    Lovely and heartwarming Romance
    Simply put, terrific and heartwarming romance.
    Total of 6 episodes, went by way too fast, wish there was more. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a lovely unique romance story.

    This is my first review, not quite sure what else to write here, but I'm forced to reach a certain character limit.. so yeah

    Touching, well written, and a lesson that everyone can learn from
    This anime was as outstanding as it is short
    The problems tackled in this short series are important as we all will deaneitj something similar at one point in our lives. This goes down as one of the best animes I've ever seen and would recommend it to anyone. My favorite part about this anime is there really aren't any characters who don't add to the development of the story.

    What a roller coaster ride this was.
    So, I wasn't expecting much when I added this to my queue just something to watch before going to bed. Well, I was wrong. I had work in the morning I was supposed to go to bed at a reasonable time, but this show had different plan. At only six episodes this series has only the core plot (romance) between the two star characters. It doesn't dive deep into every character's back story. Instead, it ...

    Excellent Short Watch
    Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora is an excellent tale of love and romance. It is a bittersweet series but nonetheless beautiful. When it comes to rewatchability I have found myself watching it over the years with its beautiful opening song and storyline it is worth giving a shot for those who like Air, Clannad, Ano-Hana.
