    Anohana, Simply Beautiful:
    Anohana is one of those shows where if you haven't watched it yet, you have to at least try it. I understand that the story isn't for everyone but please, I implore you to try Anohana.

    The Story: 5/5
    Beautifully written. The story seamlessly flows throughout the entire series, there is not one hitch throughout the show. Out of five stars the story for me would easily get ...

    THE MOST TOUCHING AND HEARTFELT ANIME I'VE EVER WATCHED!!!!
    The story was so heart warming and oringinal. It made me think of my childhood friend so much. I'm still friends with her too. I love the anime, that its even hard to find the right words to describe it. Its an instant classic for sure! It made me cry, laugh, and worry. The art work is amazing as well as the story line itself. I never thought that I would actually like it when I started to ...

    Without a doubt, an INSTANT CLASSIC.
    This anime is nothing short of amazing. Stop wasting time and watch this Anime! But for the sake of the informed consumer i'll break down my review into categories, a few key points I like to look for in a good anime.

    The art was amazing. Typically in an Anime, the first couple episodes would have amazing art work and then towards the middle... art tends to slack off. Not the case with this ...

    Do you have a heart of stone?
    My wife says I have a heart made of stone, and she is pretty much right on. However THIS anime must be impossible to hold back your emotions and tears. Sure, emotions and tears do not make a story great. So, what makes this story great? Despite the emotions and tears, this really is a feel good anime. This story takes a hard look at our humanity and you immediately get it. You identify ...

    Better get those tissues ready
    This show set the bar for dramas. Following closely behind Grave of Fireflies, Anohana is honestly one big tear-jerker. Especially towards the end. This show depicts how the loss of one girl can pull friends who've strayed so far from each other back together and finally move on with their respective lives. I highly recommend to anyone looking for a very deep plot packed with drama. 5/5 is all I ...

    Beautiful! Will please all but the most hardened synics.
    I was impressed when The Girl Who Leapt Through Time made me tear up a bit towards the end, but after a few viewings, the tears stopped coming. Anohana brought tears to my eyes several times, and I was a weepy snotty mess on three separate occasions.
    I'm glad to say that this isn't one of those shows that just happened to push one of my buttons; in fact I'd say that the buttons ...

    One Word Only... It is a
    Tearjerker!

    This anime is a freaking tearjerker. It is dramatic, sad and happy. I bet you will cry atleast once while watching this anime. Japanese people knows how to make good dramatic animes.

    Also I was watching this on my Roku and it looked HD (well not the subtitles). When i was watching on my computer and the highest is 480p. :O

    Anohana: a Freaking Awsome Show
    Well, what can I say? This was just such a heartbreaking anime. I have to admit the event that happened to these teenagers' lives, doesn't seem that strong. BUT somehow with all the characters' feelings and thoughts, this anime turned into something that even the captain of the football team would cry to.

    The fact that a "hallucination" (ghost) was able to connect/reunite her ...
