    One of the Best Adaptations!!!
    This (Drama) Film based on the anime, Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day, surpassed my expectations of what a drama could be. This film greatly told the story of the Super Peace Buster's emotional journey to grant Menma's final wish. Many film adaptations of animes fail in their task to capture the essence of their source, but I'm here to say, that this film is what most people hope for in an ...

    If you could change a day that happend 7 years ago, would you?
    Let me just say this first: I had never thought that it would make me as emotional as I am now. Though I haven`t watched the anime (witch I will now) this made me cry and love the movie!

    Anohana is about a group of childhood friends who has a special hidding spot in the woods. But after a tragdic accident that leads to one of them to die, they seperate from each other and lives on. The movie ...

    The best anime/manga to live action adaptation
    The movie followed the storyline perfectly without missing any important details. The actors are greatly chosen and they are very suitable for the characters.

    What I am most impressed of is Menma's hair color, the director decides to keep Menma's hair color as black instead of gray/white like in the anime. This makes everyone's hair color normal and more real-life-like.

    On top of all, they ...

    Retains all the feels
    I didn't think this could live up to the anime... I figured it would be a disappointment like the death note drama. I was mistaken. Even though it isn't as long as the anime and they had to cut out certain parts, it packed the same emotional punch in the guts, can barely see because of the tears, soul ripping feels. If you liked the anime, this is a must watch.

    Don't be fooled into thinking you will be safe emotionally
    Honestly this is two hours that tore me up emotionally. I thought the anime was good at that, but this surpassed the anime by far. The actors and actresses were a perfect fit for their parts, and the emotions they portrayed were so real they will pierce you through.

    It is a movie and not a series so you will get the entire story-line in one shot (if you can handle watching it in one shot). ...

    Tissues Aren't Enough!
    If you feel the need to hop aboard the feels train, jump right in. Though, I must warn you, tissues won't be enough for this ride. Even after watching the anime series and movie, I suggest keeping a towel or three handy.

    The cast did an amazing job bringing the anime to life. They were flawless in playing and looking the part (and I'll admit, I thought Tsuruko's actress was cute). And, you ...

  • You can't watch this with dry eyes
    A beautiful story. This is what I love about some Japanese dramas, they're so full of emotion. I thought this was a really, really well done. I'd like to see the anime, but it's not available on CR anymore. Hopefully I'll get to see the series one day, but I really loved this movie. It was wonderful

  • Made me cry all the same
    It's just like the anime, minus a few minor details, and the characters still had their distinct characteristics and personalities that stand out in every way. This story is such a good one and I just live the actors and how they portray those emotions that hit you right in the heartstrings. As expected, the scenery is beautiful and the colors are beautiful throughout the drama. I'm also glad that ...

  • This movie is a tear jerker
    I honestly thought that I would be able to hold my tears back while watching this movie. I was totally wrong, I cried my eyes out. So if you watch it I would suggest having a box of tissues nearby you. It was to be blunt a sad movie but it was totally worth watching.
