Breimh’s Anime Review: Anohana – Graceful and Gripping

AnohanaJinta 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.

Following the traditional early anime art-style, this is a story that flows wonderfully; allowing us the chance to become as familiar with these friends as they’ve been with one another. We learn the mysteries and secrets they hold deep inside, while solving the problems and coming to terms with letting go of the past while making their way toward their futures and lives as adults.

Released by NIS America, 2011.
One I find myself going back to from time to time, to watch again, I give this 4 of 5 stars.
