Synopsis

There are far worse things than having to deal with your ex-boyfriend's little sister or your older brother's ex-girlfriend. But that's something Karada Iokawa and Shoko Nogami have to learn the hard way when a magic wishing stone inexplicably grants Karada's wish to be older - and does it by stealing the years from Shoko! Now Shoko, who's already graduated and studied overseas, is Karada's age, just about to enter junior high school. Meanwhile Karada must suddenly face the real facts about what being grown up entails. And just to make a bizarre situation even more awkward, there's the issue of how to handle their existing romantic interests!

Never before have I ever been glued to an anime as much I had this one. I started it, and for once paid attention to the first episode from start to finish, no pausing. Its THAT good. Its a shame not many people watch it...

STORY - 10/10
Karada is a young girl who hates being treated like a child and who wishes to be grown up. Shoko is an aloof, unhappy young woman who has just returned from overseas. When they meet by coincidence one night at a local shrine where they both like to make wishes, they exchange ages.

The story then flows through both of Karada’s and Shouko’s life with their new ages, and how they come across the problems and emotions that take place. Karada is concerned about her brother, Hiro Iokawa, doesn’t know where she has disappeared to and to get him to believe that she is actually his little sister. We are shown that the two girls come to deal with their problems differently which then reflects their personalities a bit more to the viewer. Karada is shown to get depressed, having some emotional stress and brought to tears quite easily showing off more of her child like qualities. Shouko read more

Recommendations

A supernatural tale that takes place in summer. Asatte no houkou is less deep, but gives you a lesson about true friendship, just like in Air.
I didn't think I'd find a link between Lamune and Koi Kaze, but here it stands. Asatte no Houkou shares the same silent authenticity that Koi Kaze possesses. This subtle communication by intimation, with characters who are at the same time simple and obscured.

On the surface, a story about a girl who switches ages with a grown woman doesn't sound all that interesting, and it could go wrong in so many places . . . just like Koi Kaze could have gone wrong. But Asatte no Houkou has a similar level of craftsmanship as Koi Kaze, and that makes all the difference.
