Oh, I am so glad I pre-ordered this one as soon as I could, despite having only watched one episode of the show at the time. 10/10, and currently my second favorite anime of all time, right below Clannad (including After Story). In fact, the two are practically tied for first in my eyes.

And believe me, I don't say this lightly at all.

A lot of things really got to me in this one. First off, I've always liked childhood friend stories; the themes of shared memories, knowing each other, being there for each other through thick and thin... All of these themes were incorporated in this show, and moreso in a balanced 3-guy-2-girl-1-dead-girl ratio, adding in that "group" sense to it all. Romance was incorporated nicely, too, if you ask me.

Beyond that, though, it's a story about being stuck in the past, and how to move on after tragedy. Where some consider the best way to do so is to deny or forget about the past, this show shows how that is exactly what keeps people stuck there. Which is why the show's most dramatic moment which I guess some people found to be too melodramatic, is also my favorite moment...

Spoiler for Ep. 11:

Take all of that to the grand finale, which was equal parts heartwarming and heart-wrenching, and it all closes out this amazing story. Except, it's not really an ending, but the beginning of a new story, one where the characters remember the past but are no longer trapped in it.

There's more to the charm of this whole series, but those are the big things that really make this an absolute favorite of mine.

Well, this is what happens the emotion a show packs is underminded by the very reason it starts. AnoHana is ultimately disappointing and something I'd rather forget. More thoughts below...

I'm saying that practically nobody feels that they're talented.
That's what makes us strive to improve.
As we strive to improve
we notice the people around us improving too
which makes us work even harder.
In a way, I guess you could say friends are like rivals

^ It's decent.
Overall, I prefer the original OP's song, but I like this OP's animation more than the original OP's animation.

That new opening song is truly wonderful. Has the whole mono no aware atmosphere in spades.

Too bad instead of "gentle sadness" or "wistfulness" we got a full out theatrical bawfest which still leaves me disappointed to this very day . Decent series but could have been so much more.

It seems to have become trendy to bash AnoHana, but I think it holds up as one of the best series of 2011, and I appreciate a show that's emotional without being apologetic about it. As long as the drama is earned, go for it.

A half-season (11 episodes), featuring pure Drama, Slice of Life and Supernatural activity.

Well, it was a fun little watch.
I don't know if there is something wrong with me, but the disappearing scene was meant to be really emotional, and it was, but I think it could have been done a lot better for some reason.

Regardless, a 9/10 overall.
