    I still hold up it as an example...
    REALLY good. People say it's emotional like Clannad, but I went through the entire anime without shedding a tear. Until the end of course, then I bawled like a child. Beautiful story, happy ending (as much as can be expected). Amazing what they did with only 11 episodes at their disposal.

    I have to emphasize that last part. So many animes get crammed into 12 episodes, and almost always the ...

    Impossible to forget
    Anohana jumps into the realm of anime that is very atypical. It was sad and yet refreshing. It was calm and yet bold. I've watched hundreds, if not thousands of anime growing up, and this is one of the very few that if you mentioned the name, I would remember immediately what it was. It left a lasting impression on my emotions. A true work of art.

    The story centers itself on the life of a young ...

    Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day
    I'd like to start off by saying, no matter what, you should give Anohana a try. I feel that no mater what genre may be you're favorite, you will end up enjoying this. However, if you're mostly into mech and action and only watch those, this may not be the anime for you. If you love anime with drama and romance, and some comedy, this is perfect for you. Anohana has 11 episodes in total. Although ...

    Anohana: A Touching Story About Overcoming Tragedy
    This is a wonderful anime that explores the effects of tragedy, and how to cope with loss. It doesn’t use the power of tragedy and death to make you cry — it uses the power of nostalgia to move you. While these emotions are not as intense as Clannad After Story’s, I guarantee that you will cry many times over the course of this anime. Overall, this anime is great, beautiful, and definitely worth ...

    ugh jUST ugh my heart mayn
    I did not expect the floodstorm of water that seemed to empty themselves from the ducts of my eyes. Like naw dude. The concept is simple and cute, making sure to drop in the perfect amount of sweet childhood nostalgia to supplement. However, when it wants to pack a punch, it packs a punch. I did not expect at all for an ending to a shoujo-ish anime to be so... unforeseen. I mean, you have to know ...

    You need to watch this. It's a must.
    Let me just say that I watched this anime a while ago, but while cleaning up my queue I felt a sudden urge to write a review for it.

    First off, let me just admit that I'm a sucker for emotional plots, and I have no embarrassment admitting that I easily cry for many anime series that I watch. However this particular one kicked my eyes into gear, because not only did I begin crying from before ...

    EMOTIONAL ROLLERCOASTER!!!
    If you don't like crying when watching movies or anything like that, DO NOT WATCH THIS ANIME!!! This anime has managed to masterfully develop its characters in a mere 11 episodes, and makes you relate to all of their problems!! In this short 11 episode series, this anime has made me laugh, cry, be weirded out, and more. If you liked Clannad, you will absolutely love this anime.

    Anohana Finale Review
    [This was originally a blog post found on my blog MoeMonster, but has been moved to Konseptual.com.]

    Hands down, AnoHana has been my favorite anime of the Spring 2011 season, but like the members of the Super Peace Busters, I'm ready to move on with my life. At least ready to move on to the Summer 2011 season. This final post will be spoiler free, I promise!

    First some ...

    Those Feelings..So much Feels
    This anime is beyond good...I don't know how to explain it, but every episode just brings you closer and closer and when you get to the end you can't help but clutch your chest and wipe away those tears... but in the end you wouldn't want it to end any other way.
