  • 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!!

  • Beautiful and Unique
    Unique story, clever direction, good animation and believable characters and interactions. The pacing does feel a bit overly-slow in the last few episodes; as if the story was stretched to fill the season. Aside from that, beautiful, unique, and quite excellent. Very human.

    Hauntingly Aromatic Bouquet
    I'm not a writer nor am I that vastly good with portraying my thoughts, but this show, story has honestly created the largest pit in my chest. And I cannot begin to fathom what I've felt. I started today just looking to find something to pass the time while my meal cooked and saw this. I absolutely will never forget burning my food to watch every second of this, from opening to credits.

    I wouldn't call this romance a miracle
    Questionable romance using a woman's affections as something little more than an object. The show tries hard to hide its creepiness with nice lighting and music, but this story can't escape its macabre narrative.
