    Finally an anime not about be taken to a far of land...
    I am so happy that we're finally getting a story that doesn't fall into the demons and fantasy trope (I mean I like those too haha). What's even better is we'll finally get to see a not so cheesy representation of queer love in aimee. It's been done before but they're so far and few in between and more often than not - the writers don't truly understand how to portray same same sex love on the ...

    I Needed This Growing Up
    Sometimes I'm asked why I believe we need more queer love stories if love is love no matter what. Young love, mature love, crushes, etc. wouldn't straight love stories suffice and translate over to a queer audience regardless? given is a great example of how that isn't the case. This anime has been doing a stellar job so far depicting how queer relationships (platonic and romantic) can be ...

    This show tore out my heart, but in a good way
    Okay so I watched this at 4 am the other day and by god I've never become more invested in a series. I'm not gonna lie this is one of the best anime I've ever seen. I highly recommend it. Be warned however: my heart was violently torn out but by this show but like not in a bad way it was just good writing y'know? I just want my bois to be happy

    an oasis in the desert
    this is such a refreshing anime just from episode one that i cant wait for the following episodes. the animation is fluid, the music is actually good for once, the characters are interesting and it is a calm and more entertaining anime that gives off a unique feeling.

    as a person who has wathed almost one hundred animes on crunchyroll this is the first time i'm wirting a review since the anime ...

    My poor heart wasn't ready
    Thus far this show has managed to make me, a long time CR member write a review for the first time. I've seen thousands of hours of anime but I've never felt the way episode nine made me feel. I'd imagine this is what having feelings is like.
    The writing, animation, music, voice actors, story development... wow. Just wow. If you're reading this and have any question on whether you should just ...

    A Breath of Fresh Air
    Serious LGBT romances are few and far between in western media. Yaoi provides a fine substitute, though shortcomings and unfortunate tropes abound. Given is different. It is a raw and respectful depiction of a gay romance, and (perhaps in a first for a mainstream anime) actually acknowledges homosexuality exists, and the struggles that gay people face.

    It certainly isn't an in-depth ...

    Amazing adaptation from the manga
    Excellent execution. I’ve read the manga from the beginning, and was wondering how it would play out on the screen. Cheese free, with great characters, and music. If the quality from the first episode continues, I hope to see more seasons released. Definitely a 5

    A butiful show about boys falling in love. (Also the dog.)
    It has a relatively simple premise, that being that a shy boy and a guitarist facing burnout wind up working together, and it looks like he will be joining the band soon, and so far them falling in love makes perfect sense. The Sakuga is completely gorgeous, and all the characters are absolutely loveable. And while I'm not really a music person, it did sound very good, and per request, it sounded ...

    Soft with Great Music
    Loved the music. The background music really helped set the scene and also sounded great. Uenoyama was really cute. Him being constantly caught off guard by Mafuyu is fun to watch and I really think they bring out something special in each other. Loved the manga and I can't wait to watch the rest.

    Its such a well put together seris and deserves all the love it gets and it needs more love to. The characters are so loveable but they also make you feel to many feelings towards them.
