For many of us who watch anime, the medium can become something more than simply animated entertainment. Sometimes, we will find ourselves connecting on a deep emotional level with a character or characters in a show. Sometimes, the story will seem less like a fanciful escape and more like a reflection upon society or our individual lives. These are the kind of shows stick with us. They'll make us laugh, they'll make us cry, and sometimes they'll make us realize something new about ourselves. Honey and Clover is one of those kind of anime.

Based on the manga by Chika Umino, Honey and Clover follows the read more

Note: This is a review of both Honey and Clover I and II.

When you step aside and take a glance, life is oftentimes little more than a concoction of chaotic brushstrokes, a mosaic of encounters and occurrences of which the pieces, however small, inevitably define who we are. Our memories and wavering relationships, much like a painting's amalgam of colours, might not be quite so beautiful when looked at as separate pieces, but can come together to contrive the bigger picture, periods of our lives which, in retrospect, can seem meaningful, and ever so beautiful nonetheless.

In life, there’s always moments of happiness. Happiness, in general, can be achieved quite easily; receiving an unexpected gift, having great success in your career, and most especially, falling in love. But have we once thought that every time happiness comes our way, there will always be someone around us that will be on the opposite side of the coin? Failure comes with success, bitterness come with love. These are bundled facts in life that no human being is immune to. In my first review, I’ll be talking about Hachimitsu to Clover or Honey and Clover. A series that tells the story about a group read more

Ever get that nice feeling after you finished watching a really good series? That’s how I felt when I finished watching Honey and Clover.


What a wonderful story. It’s a good mix of bittersweet growing pains, salty teardrops, and huge doses of soul searching, all brought about by Love. Ah yes, Love. That is what defines the plot of Honey and Clover. Through this anime, we see how love can go both ways – it can send you flying in the sky, or it can leave you with a knife in the back.


I can relate to mostly everyone in the story, and this is also why read more

Anime: Nodame Cantabile
Both are really well done slice of life series that focus on students attending college focusing on artistic subjects (fine arts for Honey and Clover and classical music for Nodame Cantabile). The artistic style in both series is similar as well with well rounded humor to balance things out. I also can't help but see similarities between Morita and Nodame. I keep thinking that Nodame is the female version of Morita. :D

Anime: Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo
Both shows features talented people and the "normal" ones around them.
While HnC is more into slice of life, Sakuraso is more of a RomCom.

Similarities between the characters' personalities, the art style, and the sense of humor found in both animes.

Anime: Kimi to Boku.
While H.C is on a university setting, KTB is on High School but it has similar pace, similar friendships and even characters with similar personalities (the serious hardworking guy that wears glasses and is in love with a much older woman (Mayama/Kaname), the funny guy that always makes parodies (Morita/Chizuru), a girl from their age that is very small and used to be closed to others until she met them (Hagu/ Mary), a sensitive kind guy (Takemoto/ Shun), a girl that has an unrequited love for the serious guy (Yamada/Hisako). The difference is, instead of an older guy that is part of the group (Shuuji),  read more

Anime: Nana
Both of these animes have a large prospect in the slice of life point of view and the drama in these animes are overwhelming. >_> While Nana concentrates on Music, Honey and Clover concentrates on Art, and they both display the characters of these anime trying to pursue a career toward these things.
