I’ve never watched an anime that would let your tears flow like waterfalls! Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai or Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day, which I finished last night, made me sad but also happy. It the first ever anime that made me burst into tears because of the story. For me, it was perfectly made that can touch your hearts, and if you never shed a single tear here, then you’re HEARTLESS. 🙂
Now if I’m to rate Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai, then it’s 10/10 for me. Why? Okay, I’ll slice them up for you.
- The anime is so simple, yet very touching. There’s not much effect, but it will affect you after you finish the series.
- The graphics is great for me. The drawing were made right, and I think because it’s 2011 so the quality of the video is perfect.
- They don’t need to put some comedy, ecchi or some sweet scenes to make make it a total drama, but the story itself was enough to say it’s the BEST DRAMA ANIME ever. Simpler scenes, yet it will reach your heart.
- Lastly, the last two episodes will make your tears flow no matter what, BELIEVE ME!
I won’t spoil you because it would be cruel to steal your rights to watch this with 100% excitement. Imagine, I watched this Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai in only 2 days, 6 episodes for like 3 hours straight, and then when watched the remaining 5 episodes the next day night since I only watch series every evening.
Honestly, I just found this Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai through Facebook when one girl shared about it, saying that for the first episode she cried already. Since I like sad animes, then I tried watching, but I didn’t expect that I’ll get hooked up with it.
Just a small synopsis so you would have an idea what the story is about:
Jinta Yadomi and his group of childhood friends have become estranged after a tragic accident split them apart. Now in their high school years, a sudden surprise forces each of them to confront their guilt over what happened that day and come to terms with the ghosts of their past.
So I recommend this Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai to you. I swear that you’ll shed a tear or even feel the sadness within. What makes this the BEST I ever watched is because the ending is still good, and makes you happy and contented, but also makes you want to have a season 2 too!
