    Just as the title says, if you are looking for a romantic show this is it. Not one thing is wrong with this anime in my opinion and it WILL bring you to tears, it is beyond amazing, 10/10 would cry again, It's ranked number one on my list i have two number ones and this is one of them, Watch this anime if you want to experience something amazing.

    Incredible Expression of da Feelz
    Wow. Anohana is defiantly a slow starter, but once you get into it, it's impossible to stop. The music choice is just beautiful, and the animation is great as well. Besides the basics, the plot is fantastic. You get attached to the characters and share their emotions as the story progresses. If you're a fan of Clannad or Angel Beats, I'm positive you'd enjoy this series. Not only is it a ...

    Tear Jerker ~ Cute and Touching
    If you watched this anime and didnt cry at least once, I dont think you are human. This anime had you pitying the main character as soon as it started, then you slowly begin to pity the rest of the characters too. This was the first anime to make me cry. I believe if you watch this anime you will love where the story takes you and the end is a tear jerker! \( ; _ ; )/

    If it makes me cry in an unattractive fashion it's deserving of five stars.
    I watched this some time ago but the feelings it left me with are still fresh. This anime will tug on your heart strings so much so you may need to watch the episodes in doses in order to absorb the flurry of emotions you're bound to experience. Lined with themes of broken friendships, locked away memories, and unresolved pain, this anime will easily strike those who can relate. Plot reveal up ...

    ~the flower we saw that day~
    I enjoy a wide variety of animes but gems such as Anohana will always truly stick with me. I want to keep this short and to the point, Anohana is a drama focusing on a group of high schoolers who haven't truly moved on from the death of their friend, Menma. Anohana is truly amazing, emotional and gets one of the highest recomedations I can give it. Want to see something amazing? Want to cry your ...

    Watch this anime before you die
    When I recommend an anime, it usually comes with some sort of qualification: for instance, when I recommend Hanasaku Iroha, I say, "Watch this if you like slice of life." For Sasameki Koto, I say, "Watch this if you like yuri," and so on. With Anohana, I simply say, "Watch this." Anohana is my favorite anime; period. Watching it is not an experience you will regret.

    Just plain beautiful
    This is one of my absolute favorite anime of all time. Literally. I can hardly describe how it makes me feel. Its humorous, beautiful, dark, depressing, enlightening, uplifting, emotional... its all of those things all wrapped up perfectly in a tight 11 episode package. There is one simple thing that I am upset about with this anime. It has no English dub. Personally I don't care all that much, ...

    *** Feels: The Anime ***
    I was so into the story I watched all of the episodes in a row. I don't think I stopped crying either! It is definitely well made, and all though there are a few plot-holes, you are so immersed in the story you don't even mind.

    Excellent..One to add to your top anime list!
    I have to admit Anohana simply got my by surprise. i didn't expect such a great story and to cry so much. even though this anime is short it gets the job done! Everything is well explained and nothing in the story is left out. I really enjoyed this and i recommend giving Anohana a shot!

    Make sure to get your equipment ready before watching this i'd say:
    A bucket (for your tears)
    tissues
    and ...
