Synopsis

When a group of friends decide to make a movie over a long summer holiday, they end up learning a little about filmmaking and a lot more about each other and themselves. What begins as a simple way to avoid the summer doldrums quickly turns into something much more complex, intimate and revealing, as the maturing relationships between the members of the young cast take on new, and sometimes very unexpected, turns.

"A picture is worth a thousand words"; I've never quite believed that saying as much as I did after seeing the last scene of this anime.

Ano Natsu de Matteru is an anime about a group of friends spending their summer vacation hanging out and filming a movie. Sounds simple, yes? Not quite. It doesn't take very long for the romance and the drama to kick in, where Ano Natsu is most focused. In fact, that STILL might be an understatement. Within the first 4 episodes, all of the love interests of the main characters are well established and/or heavily hinted at, and there is read more

AnoNatsu is a strange case: a competent JC Staff romance anime, that works as an installment to an old series (the Onegai series), dealing with filmmaking, sci-fi, and summer holidays despite being a Winter 2012 anime.

Directed by Nagai Tatsuyuki (Ano Hana, Toradora!), this anime is a mix of the new and old conventions of romance anime: love triangles, genre fusion, and more. Kirishima Kaito (Shimazaki Nobunaga), who looks awfully a lot like Jintan from AnoHana, is your average geek interested in using an old film camera he found in the attic. Equipped with various ISO films, he practices cinematography along with his friend, read more

Ano Natsu de Matteru can not be considered an Anime dramatic / sentimental, but I appreciate the same.
Let's start with the plot: it is not just one of the strengths of this anime, in fact in some ways seems to be trivial, for others it is particularly interesting. One good thing, however, the plot of this anime has it: not the sentimental classic that always ends with the two protagonists that after 20 episodes and go get engaged. In this anime protagonists have clear ideas about their feelings even before the series can be defined over. I admit that the ending did not make me read more

“We are only truly gone from this world when all memories of us are forgotten, that is true sadness”

Ano Natsu de Matteru is definitely one of the more quirky shows I have seen in a while. It is a harem themed show, but its take on humour is a bit different from most other harem shows and as a result it certainly was a thoroughly enjoyable watch. In English it translates as “Waiting in the summer”. The show first aired in Jan 2012 and after 12 episodes, ended in March. It was produced by Sentai Filmworks, who notably have made highly acclaimed shows such as read more

Until finishing Ano Natsu, I had thought the OBVIOUS similarities between the two were nothing more than examples of the anime industry's lack of originality. But it turns out they were written by the same person, with Ano Natsu linking into Onegai Teacher at the very end. So, it wasn't theft: it was just the writer being lazy. Glad that's clear, now.

Two alien Mary Sues come from space. They have the same basic character designs. One becomes a teacher; one becomes a student. They fall in love with scrawny, four-eyed midgets. There's drama.
-Both give the same feeling/atmosphere
-Both have something to do with the theme "Summer"
-Similar art
-Both are interesting
Both are lovely sweet love comedies that make you smile. Both have enough depth to be interesting and lovable. <3
How within the group of friends, their corresponding love interests are pretty similar. The main characters having a love interest for an "alien". In Ano Natsu the main Kaito a human falls for Ichika an alien, in Nagi no Asukara its kinda the reverse. The main Manaka a half human and fish (alien) falls for Tsumugu a human. Characters that play similar roles in both are, ( Nagi no Asukara 1st ) Hikari and Kanna, Chisaki and Tetsurou, Kaname and Mio.
-Supernatural things and unexpected events happens in their summer
-School life/slice of life anime
Aliens, comedy and bright colors. A slow paced story that is also a story about growing up. What more could you ask for? How about aliens interrupting the day to day lives of normal people and the normal crazy antics of teens.
