  • 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.

  • A beautiful watch, AFTER the anime!
    Anohana (both the anime and live-action film) are binge-worthy! I would watch them over and over again to share with friends, and possibly end up crying each time. An excellent find! (Be sure to watch the live-action following the anime, as the anime develops the story, and the live-action seems to be missing a few pieces~)

    Jinta believes he is delusional when his childhood friend, Menma, ...

    A really boring adaptation
    I tried to watch this movie, really try my best. But after 40min of a slow,action with emotionless character, I couldn't bear it anymore. I watched the anime and it was really a good one. But here it's like all the "bad point" of this sort of anime is shown. Slow pace (bad pace ?), nearly no action, to much anger.. and well, it's really boring to watch. I can't see how you can cry watching this ...

  • Loved it! It really moved me!
    I have to say that the plot was really fast compared to the anime but it still made me cry in the end. I still give it a 5-star because the story is good! If yo haven't seen the anime then you should do that before watching this! It has more detailed scenes, obviously, than the drama but it's pretty explanatory. Watch it after you've watched the anime!!

    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 ...

    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 ...

  • Faithful to the anime
    Such a beautiful drama that stayed faithful to the anime. The actors did a very good job portraying their characters. Definitely one I recommend watching. And don't say you won't cry because no matter who you are, I can guarantee you will at least shed one tear...

    I'm real disappointed..
    This movie was a tear jerker, I'll give you that. I think it was only because that I've previously watched the actual series and I remember the scenes that hit me the most.
    But their aim to match the series to a T, lacked. Reeeaal bad. They missed a lot of huge situations that made the story what it was. It seemed rushed, and the pace was terrible. Granted, the characters looked the same, ...
