  • A beautiful and somewhat relatable show
    This show is so beautiful that it really transmits the feelings of the characters over every single scene, you'll feel sad or want to smile with them when their emotions are portrayed on the screen. Akiyuki Shinbo is working on this show, after all.

    So you should watch it for the animation alone but the story is also beautiful. The way this show represents some mental scars/illnesses is ...

  • This anime is well worth to watch (several times maybe :) )
    This anime is just as great as Honey and Clover. It gives such an insight into a range of emotions and in the same time it gives a lot energy to the viewer. I really like how the author gently encourages people to find their place and open up to others and to things that seem difficult. It is a slow paced anime however it does make me want to watch more and the art is absolutely gorgeous. The plot ...

  • The Great Feels trip of 2017
    Watched the first episode because the title and art style reminded me of Your Lie In April and knowing how good that show was I wasn't expecting too much out of this one. However now that the first season has ended in my personal opinion I feel like March Comes In Like A Lion outperforms in every aspect.

    The storytelling paces itself well, having gone back and read the manga the slow approach ...

  • The Best Anime of the Past Season
    I am in love with this show. It's a tightrope walk balancing complex, conflicting emotions and moods. It's a train of thought that and takes you to directions you did not expect. It always leads to different sections of the same place: honesty, and not the cheap type where you say something rude or brash or contrarian. It's the well-thought-out, belabored, earned kind of honesty that makes this ...

  • March sure came in like a lion. So did my feels
    I don't think i've ever watched or read anything that focused on character development more so than the plot, however i'm glad this was my first.
    Beautiful character and relationship development. Beautiful art. Beautiful music. The OP and EDs are great too

    This anime also gave those who followed its airing a real treat, with the new years episode matching new years as well as having the last ...

  • emotionally moving, intellectually satisfying
    I will admit it feels like this anime starts a little slow. But if you hang in there you will find it is just setting the groundwork for complex relationships and issues. My only beef, and no one else would have this, is the simplistic attitude it has toward depression. (I am retired from a career in psychiatry, so I am picky). Other than that, there is more substance to this series than most. ...

  • Excellent Story, Great Pacing
    The summary of the "About the show" section here on Crunchyroll doesn't do full justice to what is really an amazing story. I went into it thinking I was getting myself into a bit of a romantic comedy with a touch of tragedy.

    But that isn't what this is. The characters are developed incredibly well. The art style is a bit different, but it totally suits the world it's in. The story is actually ...

  • Beautifully created!
    This isn't usually the type of show that I would watch but something about it caught my eye and I started to watch it. It is slow paced and it takes a while for you to get to know the main character and the secondary characters. They have captured my heart and I have fallen in love with this show. It isn't just about the shogi nor is it just about the struggles that they have gone through, and ...

  • A hard-hitting but feel good anime
    First off, I want to thank the creator and writers for depicting depression so genuinely and accurately. Sometimes it makes it hard to watch for me but it's also refreshing to see it depicted so well, especially because whenever I try to describe depression I can never seem to do it justice.

    But don't get the idea that this anime is all dark and gloomy. It really highlights the importance of ...
