Ah, Umino Chika's masterpiece, Honey and Clover. I first saw this more or less two years ago, initially thinking it was just some generic romance anime. Needless to say, I suddenly fell in love with it from the moment in season one, episode two, near the ending, when Takemoto was carrying Morita on his back. Cue. The piano stopped. And right after that, he said, "It hurts". From that point on, I knew I was watching a different kind of anime. I guess remembering that random scene from an episode proves that it had an impact.

Season one ended gracefully, you could accept it as "ending" read more

12 episodes were not enough. I at least need 24 episodes of Honey and Clover goodness for my fill. Honey and Clover was just easy and fun to watch, and it was the same for the second season.

As for the drawing style, main plot and voice acting, not much has changed so I’ll only focus on the things that have changed.

The main plot hasn’t changed – it’s still a “coming of age” story for all of the characters, but for this season, the focus has shifted from Takemoto and Yamada’s individual stories to Hagu and Morita. Sure we still get to see the Takemoto’s struggles read more

A sequel is often a lackadaisical attempt to cash in on its predecessor’s success. As such, most spin offs end up being mediocre or straight out terrible. There is however, a small handful that takes the foundation its progenitor has laid out and adds another, more polished layer on top. Honey and Clover II may be a sequel, but it is by no means inferior. In fact, with the characters firmly established, the show plays out the resolutions to much of the initial conflicts, creating a product that is actually superior to the original.

Production values are once again solid with beautiful animation, heartfelt music and read more

Title: Honey and Clover II

Anime: Honey and Clover II was once again produced by JC Staff (famous for their work on Revolutionary Girl Utena and Excel Saga), and directed by Tatsuyuki Nagain (famous for his work on My-HiME and iDOLM@STER XENOGLOSSIA) this time around. It aired on Japanese TV from June 29th to September 14th, 2006. It has yet to be licensed Stateside.

Story: Honey and Clover II picks up where Honey and Clover left off, and finishes up the remaining manga material.

I like this follow-up. It answers questions it left unanswered last season, and resolves all the relationships that were left hanging read more

Anime: Clannad: After Story
Clannad ~AS~ may actually be slower-paced than H&C II, with both being peaceful slice-of-lifes tinged with despair. Very emotional stories, truly masterpieces.

Anime: Usagi Drop
Dealing with real life situation, these two has the same atmosphere. Both provide not only dramatic but also fun scenes, as well as lovable characters.

Honey & Clover focuses on romantic relationships while Usagi Drop deals with relationships in a family.

Both are a must-watch!
