AnoHana was one of the few anime that I've really enjoyed watching, it comes up with a Drama, Slice of life, and Supernatural genre that quite fits for most of the people who loves to watch emotional and yet with a twist in the storyline which is supernatural. Also it is divided into two types of mood which is guilt & realization (in my own opinion only, on how did I interpret the story). At the same time the story of Anohana really illustrates on how we struggle with the ghost of our past.

Speaking of the word "past" we often say that past is past. But, for some reason there are really some of these past that we aren't able to move one, especially if you have something to do or something to say that seems to be impossible at the present time.


Losing someone you love isn’t an easy as 1-2-3 where in fact there is a worst case scenario involvement where you have to confess your feelings with someone else that seems to be impossible right now because he/she’s gone already. You need a long time to move on and to recover from the past. However, each situation that you’ve come up with is always triggering the ghost factor of the past, which is seems to be so hard.

This is a generic story as always, but one thing that I’d love in AnoHana is that it came up with an idea that is generic also but both of them really complimented resulting into a masterpiece.
AnoHana’s ghost factor was the highlight for this anime.

When it comes to art & sound elements there’s nothing special about it. Descent and simple illustration when it comes to characters and other elements that is quite fits to the whole anime which I really enjoyed the most at the same time.

Well, as a matter of fact when it comes to these kinds of genres, being simple in all aspect would be the best asset, as you illustrate the reality.

Leading characters was also the highlights in here, coming from the word guilt & obsession really paired up with the story. Personality for each character and behavior are really great. What I love in here is Jint

a, the way he act and speak really match with the illustration for this main character and Poppo of course.

Enjoyment, probably you will enjoy this one especially if you can relate with the story or you are too depressed or emotional. My advice in here is to watch this one according to your mood it really helps.

So far, I’ll give it a 9, for being simple and well delivered story that came up with a supernatural twist which is very effective among the viewers who rated this anime 8+.

Want to improve my review? Let me here some words from you.

Note: They said, opinions aren’t special as we have our own at the same time, so again this one never intend to please everyone and to persuade everyone to watch it.

One Response so far.
