At a Shinto shrine in Shimoda, there is a large rock. It is said that if four close friends gather around the rock and all wish for the same thing, that wish will come true. As four friends, Natsumi, Saki, Yuka and Rinko, gather around the rock like they used to in their childhood, they soon find the rock can indeed grant people's wishes. With only a short amount of time before Saki is due to transfer schools, the girls spend a summer filled with magic.

I don't understand the low score for this one, so I'll write a review based on my special feelings for this series.
There are so many mixing of genres these days that pretty much anything is possible. However, very few actually succeeded in my opinion. I'm someone who goes for the plain bread when there are too many deserts in front of me. Anyone who can make bread taste better among the mountain of deserts deserves a lot of respect.
Natsuiro Kiseki is that piece of bread I've been looking for.
Upon first impression, there is really nothing special about it. It's just about a group read more

Another Slice of Life, another gimmick. But is a miracle granting rock enough to set Natsuiro Kiseki (Summer-Colored Miracle) apart?

As always my reviews are spoiler free.

Stop me if you've seen this one before: four high/middle school girls are just going about their lives. There are no sinister plots or world-saving hero required. The viewer is asked to sit back and enjoy as nothing of particular note goes on. There is always some theme that sort of keeps the anime moving along, whether it be music, photography, gondola rowing, or in Natsuiro Kiseki's case, a miracle granting rock. It's a slightly read more

Firstly, I think that the anime deserve a round of applause. Next, I shall keep my reviews short (There is no point to write a long, boring review, right?).

Enjoyment? or Hatred?
I think that this people who watched this anime has split into two kinds. One, enjoyed most or every episodes. The other, disliked most or every single episodes. I belonged to the group that enjoyed this anime.

Comparing to other slice of life anime, this anime has a very unusual way of showing its storyline. The anime expressed the joy, comedy, its own story and "daily life" into a single form. And every episodes should read more

Hopefully this review can convince you to give this anime a chance, despite its low rating.

Natsuiro Kiseki is a combination of my favorite genres: slice of life and supernatural. It deals with a story of friendship, and this circle of four girls experiences a tremendous amount of growth and maturation throughout their summer adventures.

The story is amazing. I would even dare to say that it parallels that of Anohana. These four girls all start their journey as a circle of friends, but really not more than that. They have fun together, but they also argue and disagree on many things. Throughout the course of their read more

Sweet tales about ones dreams coming true. Slice of life that deals with the bonding of friendships and that also have similar art styles and similar feeling to the story.

Anime: Hanasaku Iroha
Both have the same protagonist lineup (four girls), and both shows are slice of lives which emphasize in the depth of the story about friendship, family, etc. Similar character design also (Rinko has similar hair with Ohana).

Both series involves a group of cute girls doing cute things in a slice of life style mixed in with comedy and drama.

Both series has a variety of characters of different personalities as they live life in a somewhat realistic approach.

Both series has similar feeling and style.
