Synopsis

Fumi Manjoume, an introverted, bookish teenage girl, is beginning her first year of high school at Matsuoka Girls' High School. She enters the school year with her heart broken by a previous relationship. At about the same time, she reconnects with her best friend from ten years ago, Akira Okudaira, who is now attending Fujigatani Girls' Academy as a first-year high school student. As they reconnect, they both deal with their own respective romantic problems, and help each other get through them.

It's true enough when they say that you never forget your first love. There are those lucky enough that the memory is nothing more than that, just a hazy recollection, a fond vagueness. For some, first loves are pangs, barely perceptible; the heart has forgotten how to beat to that rhythm. And then for some, a first love is as soft and fragile as a little flower.

This is the wealth presented in Aoi Hana, an anime adaptation of Shimura Takako's utterly genius manga series. The development of the manga is akin to watching a book read itself, learning and discovering things, and then reflecting that read more

If your requirements for enjoying an anime are fantastical brightly colored settings, perfectly formed and ideal bodies, and over the top comedy chop full of nosebleeds and sparkly heart shaped eyes; then Aoi Hana is not for you. If your only interest in yuri storylines is girl on girl macking and fan service; then Aoi Hana is not for you. Aoi Hana has none of these things. (Well besides the girl on girl macking)

What Aoi Hana attempts to portray is a thoughtful and serious story about a group of teenage girls as they learn about first love and themselves. The main focuses read more

I began reading the manga long ago, but for some reason I still don't know, I stopped.

Anyway, Aoi Hana is a very special anime: good animation, colors, soundtrack. The storyline is really sensitive and beautiful. I think it shows very much the difficulty we have with our own emotions and also how amazing is the first love thing, even though you get to get distant from the person you fell in love with. It's a mark on our lifes.

I recommend it.

So I just finished this anime and I can say that I did not regret it.

Story 7/10 : The story about highschool girls reconnecting, finding love, getting hurt and finding thier way back. The characters have their own personality and their own love problems which made the story intense (personally). By the end of the series, you begin to wonder and fill yourself with many questions..which also made me love this story even more then I did, (reading the manga as of now -) I couldn't help but wonder what will happin to Ikimu? or Sugimoto? what of A-chan and Fumi? Then I began read more

Really similar settings, characters. You couldn't tell Sumi apart from Fumi even if your life was on the line (:
Both sweet shoujo-ai, slice of life animes.
Though sasameki koto is a bit better imo (:

Slow pacing, bittersweet emotions and light, pleasant animation. If you liked one, I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy the other as well.  
reportRecommended by Tshuki
Well developed shoujo-ai stories. Both share a refreshing calm atmosphere with soft colors that sometimes can get really tense. 
reportRecommended by drf
They both have extremely similar pastel-looking art styles and center around sweet, somewhat angst, romance. Just Aoi Hana focuses on a homosexual relationship, whereas Kimi ni Todoke focuses on a heterosexual relationship. 
reportRecommended by Master10K
Although Aoi Hana is a more story-driven work, it is similar to Sakura Trick in depicting the evolving relationship between two childhood friends as they enter high school.  
reportRecommended by arsonal
Both series are shoujo-ai and very beautifully animated.
