  • Let's just say it was a bit rough
    This was more a pissing contest anime than a romance. However, if you looked at it like that it wasn't too bad. It does well on grief in a few spots too. Plus, the animation is AMAZING! I would have sat through babies crying for 6 hours just to see the animation in this one.

    Dead people and flowers go hand in hand it seems..
    It's amusing how the center props and most of the visuals of this anime are flowers, the typical item most flock to when dealing with the recently departed, or an item to leave behind in memory.

    I find it weird most people chalk this show up as a romance anime, it most certainly is not. Yes there are romance elements involved, however I feel this show is mostly focused on capturing the feelings ...

    I had good hopes when it started ...
    I had hope for this anime when i first started watching the 3 first episodes, but then ... When that ghost took control over Hazuki's body that's when the anime was going downhill. I do not know where they tried to go with this show. I felt like they tried to fill up a couple of episodes with a very long scene that kept repeating the same dialogue with the same scenery of them talking non sense. ...

  • So Close Only To Fall So Far Away
    I have a tendency to get hung up on things when I can't agree with or rationalize them in shows. Even if that thing is small, I'm usually not able to enjoy the story or characters associated with it once I see it. -- Spoiler -- Here I had an issue with something that didn't seem so small. Maybe I'm being overly simplistic or shallow but when the ghost used the MCs body, the body of the man his ...

  • Good, but could have been great....
    3.75 stars. Natsuyuki Rendezvous starts off with a lot of promise, but in the end I was left disappointed.

    I loved that the series focused on older protags. The main couple is an unusual 30 year old widow and a 22 year old man. It's slice of life/romance meets paranormal as the widow's dead husband haunts her potential new boyfriend. Great setup. New boyfriend is insecure, widow doesn't believe ...

  • A Pleasant Surprise...
    I clicked on Random and found this anime, i must admit it sounded like it would be some dumbed-down comedy or a crazy supernatural waste of time. All i went off of was the little description, no google search or anything like that. What i wound up watching couldn't of been any further from what i had expected. While slow at certain parts of the series this anime was beautiful, it tugged at the ...

    Lovely through out but that ending
    I started this anime since it intrigued me and i really enjoyed it through out even making me cry on multiple occasions but that ending, its the soul reason why iv ended up writing this review. For me this ending was terrible, i found myself just going " what the hell o_O " the entire last episode and getting that unnecessary time skip at the very end just seemed horrible to me, i was hoping for a ...

    complex and mature anime
    If you are looking for a cut and dry series move on. This has deep questions to contemplate and figure out how you would deal with them very mature anime great art and amazing story! There is a problem with the pacing of the story could be better if it was would have got a 5 star rating

    Well-written and planned story with well-rounded characters
    As my first foray into josei anime, I wasn't sure what to expect, but Natsuyuki Rendezvous is a beautiful story about very real, flawed characters that are still loveable and endearing...like real people...even in supernatural circumstances.

    I'm surprised to see so few reviews, and at that not more positive ones. I hope others will enjoy this short, but well-written and planned, series as much ...

  • Very interesting story
    Though the story can kind of drag for a few moments each episode I feel that it's acceptable. A good build up in most cases. I really think it's worth taking the time to go through the first few episodes and getting a feel for the style and pacing. It starts off very down to earth and suddenly it gets very surreal.
    In short Highly recommended!!
