Synopsis

Thirteen-year-old Yasaka is a boy staying at his grandfather's house during his summer vacation. One day he entered a store and met Arashi, a beautiful sixteen-year old girl working there. After trying to protect her from a man who claims to have been hired by her family to take her back by force, Yasaka ran away with her and now she stays at his grandpa's place with him. It didn't take much time for Yasaka to figure out that his new friend is far from an ordinary girl, as she possesses mysterious powers. The plot thickens when he finds a sixty-year-old picture of Arashi and another girl named Kaja, and to the surprise of all Kaja suddenly appears, and just like Arashi, her appearance hasn't changed at all since then.

It’s a crime that this series seems to be so unappreciated and under viewed when clichéd garbage such as Maria Holic gets overhyped and legions of fanboys. I only bring up Maria Holic because it was made by the same studio, SHAFT, and I feel both have a kind of niche quality to them. However where Maria falls on its face, Natsu no Arashi! emerges as one of the best shows of 2009.

To sum up the storyline in a word it would be; quirky. From the beginning of the first episode and from just looking at the promotional art you might think read more

Kanako: How are you today, Yayoi?
Yayoi: I’m feeling very well, Kanako.

Kanako: I see. I’m glad to hear that.
Yayoi: I saw another very interesting anime.

Kanako: What was the title of the anime you liked so much, I wonder?
Yayoi: That is… Ah, I seem to have forgotten the title.

Kanako: Will you tell me what kind of story it was?
Yayoi: Yes, I would be happy to.

It was a story that crossed time. It was a story of a girl and a boy who… But I don’t want to spoil all the fun, you should just try to watch it some time, Kanako.

Kanako: My my, is it really read more

Recommendations

Both series centre around a uniform-wearing girl with unusual powers who originates from a bygone era. Natsu no Arashi has a lot more humour and slice-of-life aspects compared to Tasogare Otome's fairly consistant drama and seriousness, but both series have a reasonable enough balance of humour and seriousness that they're still very comparable. Additionally, they both have a similar directorial style -- not all THAT surprising, given Oonuma Shin worked on both.
Same random-ness and comedy style, both feature life of workers in a café.
