Kimi ga nozomu Eien- Discussion

I've only watched half of it. What does everyone else think of this series?

Its probably the most shoujo series i've ever watched so its a little bit different for me. I think trying to figure out whats going to happen hurts my brain so i've stopped trying.

I pretty much like it for the first half

There is a whole forum for the series hidden under "Older Series Discussion". I'm starting to think moving them there is a bad idea.

It ain't really shoujo, because it's intended for adults, but anyway, glad you like it , I had a similar experience.

One warning do not read the kiminozo forums before finishing it, there are unfortunately some spoiler left and right. And you don't want to know the ending in advance !

Personally it is one of my all-time favorite shows. I actually got quite emotional over what took place in many of the episodes

I don't think it's a shoujo anime, rather a very realistic anime about troubles in relationships and the tough choices we get presented in life. An anime that can make you cry and laugh, in the end I did feel quite happy. I actually was able to make a few of my (anime-hating) friends watch the series and they liked it alot as well !

Enjoy the experience

A favorite. I wouldn't classify it as shoujo. Drama up to the hilt

Amazing. It will move you, and you'll be thinking about it even after you finish the series.

Actually i think that the anime has some serious relationships here..[ Haruka being coma'ed after being knocked down by the car.. Takayuki sad.. crycry.. ]
Ouh yea... i just feel the whole anime is kinda disturbing.. it is very stressing to watch the chracters being hurted here and there by watching episode by episode.

I really pitied Haruka but still Hayase is still da best~! Akane really sharp'ed tougue [ made me hate her ] insulted Hayase saying that she's a betryer [ she is soo dense duh after 3 years after tat accident of course their life would change ]

Well tat is all i have to say.. a very stressful anime but nice show indeed ^^ [ woopz.. im underage to watch tat show eh? ]

Mitsuki should've gotten fired after a few eps. If ppl like her are filling Japanese positions it's no wonder the economy has stagnated. I could only understand her continued presence at work if she had stellar moments that were not (ever) shown on screen. Otherwise she was a total screwup, and it seemed like a respectable work establishment. Or maybe not--was it like a noodle selling business? Who gets away with bringing that much drama to work?

a great semi-realistc anime. (after all this kinda thing doesn't happen very often and I would hope most of my fellow gender are more decisive then Takauyki) and the anime had a good realistic ending.

Hmm....just seen 4 eps of this anime and I must say I am a bit dissapointed...I don't understand why it's so popular and ranked so high among Animenfo's top 200 anime (it's on second place). maybe I just need to watch more of it to understand..?

this series is very character driven... if you don't feel anything to the character, it will be very ordinary.

One of the best series in its genre. I really cared about the characters.

I was really glad I didn't watch the trailer before I watched Kimi ga Nozomu Eien or else the second episode wouldn't leave that much of an impact on me. :P After this anime I'm against trailers of all kind.

So it's #2 on my list, and it won't go down unless some thing better than SHnY (and there won't be soon) is released. Keep on watching it. :P

I cant believe how sad this anime is, especially the final scence with the picture book and the song that is being played. Seriously unbelievable.

Is the final scene really sad?

I guess it is in the meaning that I tear up every time I see it, but frankly I think that the hontou no takaramono is what lifts KimiNozo sky high above all other galgame conversions I've ever seen. It's an encompassing allegory for the young life of the four friends, and it sends a distinct message of forgiveness and hope for reconciliation. It's the greatest scene for Haruka in the entire show, IMHO. And it gives the bittersweet story a wonderful, positive closure WITHOUT slamming on the dreaded reset button which plagues so many shows.

Still, those are tears of empathy, not sadness. Consider the message. It's healing.
