Well like I promised here is the anime review for today!
So the anime I’m reviewing is called Anohana. I had been wanting to watching this anime for awhile now because it looked interesting but I heard it was sad and I didn’t want to cry. But when I had a day off and wanted to watch a short anime Anohana (it’s 11 episodes) was what I decided to give a chance in watching. When I finished this series I was very happy that I gave it a try.
Anohana is about a group of kids now teenagers who have gone their separate ways after the death of one of their friends. Now years later Jinta also known as Jintan is able to see the ghost of Menma. Now Menma is aware that she is dead but she remembers that she had one last request. Now through out the series you see how the group starts to come back together but you also see how each of them have to face the feelings of what happened that day when Menma died and the feelings of what happened after.
Now this series wasn’t all sadness because it did have a few funny moments too, but the tears definitely did fall. I started crying after the first episode so that says something. This series also has romance as well with quite a few love triangles going on in the series with a few broken hearts happening as well.
The music in this show is also amazing! I absolutely fell in love with the ending song “Secret Base ~Kimi ga Kurera Mono. I have this song in my playlist and a piano version as well since this song was so good and definitely fit the entire feel of the show.
Now if you enjoyed shows like Angel Beats or Clannad/Clannad After Story then you will definitely enjoy Anohana. Just be sure to bring a few tissues with you as your watching it.
There is also a movie that acts as epilogue after the series which I haven’t watched yet but I heard it’s good so I plan to watch it soon.
So check out Anohana and thanks for reading my review!
