It's ending perfectly reflects your emotions with the protagonists and I can't really come up with many works in any field that have left me that way.
That is really true. Its a solid story. I'm still bummed that it took the guy SO LONG to get over it. Especially since he had at least two other greats girls near him, but I can understand how a beautiful girl will leave a strong impression on your when you're 13 and all.

Another gauge of the greatness here is how you really went through all of your emotions as you watched it. You really felt for the characters and their circumstances.
