Synopsis

After contracting hepatitis A, Ezaki Yuuichi has been confined to a hospital, away from his friends and family, much to his displeasure. To relieve his boredom, he has taken to sneaking out of the hospital, usually putting himself on the receiving end of a beating from his nurse. Upon meeting a girl his age also staying in the hospital, he is immediately captivated by her beauty. Akiba Rika's personality is not quite as captivating as her beauty however. In fact, she is rather selfish, moody, and bossy. But as the two spend more time with each other, they become closer, sharing the ordinary joys and trials of a budding teenage romance, even when darkened with impending tragedy—for Rika's condition does not leave her much longer to live.

I'm really glad I actually sat down and watched this one fully. It only took a day, but what a day it was worth. I've watched many popular romance animes such as Clannad and Konan and can say nicely that, if it wanted to, this anime could have been on their level IF not greater.
There are a few things holding it back, though, which makes an unsatisfied feeling. I'll fully explain that through this review.

For those who are familiar with Clannad/Clannad After Story (for those who aren't, it is a fantastic romance anime) this anime in my opinion is at its level, yes it is and I am not being sarcastic or joking or f**king with you. If you doubt my opinion, its fine, if you agree that's great.
