    The Greatest Feels Anime of All Time
    I'll start this review off by saying that I am not much of a crier... but with Anohana I cried in almost every single episode.

    If you have ever experienced the loss of a close friend, whether expectedly or unexpectedly, this anime is sure to kick you square in the feels multiple times. If you don't like getting kicked in the feels, then don't watch this anime. Even though there is a finite ...

    Who Put These Onions Near My Damn Computer T^T
    Well it's official that this is the best anime that's ever made me cry. It was was amazing in every way. The moment they started reading the letters the tears were unleashed. I heard Clannad After Story was also like this so I guess I'm watch gonna be watching that next. Well I'm off to buy more tissues.

    An Anime to Remember
    This show had more story, emotion, character development, etc... in eleven episodes than some regular TV Shows in the USA have in 6+ seasons of airing.

    This show is nothing short of a masterpiece and something that I think anyone who is remotely interested in anime should watch. It validates anime as something more than just pokemon, Naruto, One Piece, etc... It shows that anime can move you in ...

    It got me. And it was beautiful.
    It made me cry. I know that a lot of people have said that already, but it's true. This anime really grabbed me more than any I have seen so far. Seeing the characters tear up made me do the same every time. I don't know how they did it.
    Really good anime...

    WARNING: Watching will cause you to cry uncontrollably
    This anime had always been on my 'watch eventually' list and I am so so so so so so glad I finally watched it. This emotional rollercoaster is one of the best I have ever seen. I don't think I have ever cried longer than I have for this anime (except maybe for Angel Beats). I am so incredibly impressed with the way this anime concluded. I was impressed the whole way through but the ending hit me ...

    da feels r real in dis
    I suggest you bring tissues, more tissues, and more tissues. Unless your a cold-blooded person, with no emotions at all, you will cry. In this anime, you will be on the edge of your seats, cliffhanger after cliffhanger. And you won't even want to skip the theme song. <3

    Tears, Tears, and More Tears
    This series will leave you hanging right until the very end, when it delivers a blow so final, that full grown men and women will cry like the smallest of children. This mature show is not for the faint of heart, and be ready to have leaky eyes at least once in every episode. Without spoiling the show, the ending is probably the sweetest yet saddest that I have ever seen.

    Beautiful and A Sweet Closing
    This anime was really great at being able to bring lost friendships back and about accepting loss and moving on. At first I wasn't to crazy about how the main girl character looked, but I got used to it.
    POSSIBLE SPOLIER ALERT!

    The ending was absolutely beautiful, all of them got to say goodbye it a childlike way, and she also wrote a touching note to each of them saying what she loved in ...

    Tragically Beautiful, One of my Favorite Anime Series of All-Time
    Every time "Aoi Shiori" begins to play during the opening title sequence, I am reminded of how wonderful and touching this series is. It's wonderfully written, has fantastic animation, and the characters are all tragically-beautiful. I can safely say that you WILL get emotionally invested in each of the characters, which is part of the reason why this anime is so great. The series doesn't fail to ...

    This anime is so AMAZING
    Just watch it....in one sitting. You won't regret it. You will tear up at least once. It's so beautiful, sad, heartwarming, and touching. Bring a box of tissues. The characters become relatable as you watch this. I totally see why this anime gets so much praise. Truly a masterpiece.
