"Oh no, here come the tears!"
Anohana was a fantastic, emotional story of loss that struck all the right heart chords. Anyone who has abruptly lost someone premature in their lives can relate to this series. What it does, it does very good in fact... And I really started empathizing with the characters like I knew exactly what tragedy they had gone through. All of the characters and their motives were believable, and it made for one enjoyable experience.

STORY: 10
Although Anohana only had 11 episodes to get it's point across, I had no problem understanding any part of the plot. Six kids, read more

There’s nothing quite like the loss of a loved one for changing a person. We always feel that death is such an alien concept, it exists but is somehow detached and unrelated to our own little world until it comes knocking on our doorstep. Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai (We Still Don't Know the Name of the Flower We Saw That Day), tries to show us just how powerful an effect death can have on us.

The keyword is ‘tries’, and for the most part, AnoHana succeeds. It is one of those anime that illustrates perfectly the idea that the read more

Anohana is a story of a close group of friends that loses one of their members in an accident when they were young. After this incident, the group disbands and becomes distant. However, one of the characters, Yadomi Jinta, is still able to see the ghost of the dead friend, Menma, and has the duty of granting Menma’s wish which she had wanted before she passed away in order for her to rest in peace. When Jinta claims to the rest of his friends that he can still see Menma and wishes to grant her wish together, they do not believe him and thinks he’s read more

So this is my first review thus bear with me:)

Alright so let's start with the review!!!

Story & Characters 9/10

The story of this anime is very good and solid and for me it left just one loose end, but it doesn't take from the general enjoyment. The ending though I gotta say it's very good, it even made me shed a tear (previously I think I only shed a tear at One Piece Merry, anime wise), which is quite rare and should say something about it. The character progression for the MC is good, but most characters are enjoyable too(even if they were perverts :-p) except read more

Recommendations

Both have as main a silver haired girl that has a goal to fulfill. Both animes talk about death, life and reincarnation. Both are about a group of friends that go through many situations but in the end show us that true friendship is a wonderful thing. Both will make you teary.
It's a "light" feeling anime about a group of friends, just like AnoHana. I would definitely recommend it. They both have fantasy elements and are about how a group of friends' lives are changed forever by different circumstances, including love, among other things.
-Both give the same feeling/atmosphere
-Both have something to do with the theme "Summer"
-Similar art
-Both are interesting
Two shows with a focus on drama and the personal relationships between a group of friends.

beautiful ost and amazing plot and character development. what more could I ask? Oh yeah, more episodes or a season two but that's just too much. Just hoping that jinta gets a kid with anaru and saa-kun gets a kid and well, you do the math.

tragedy and awesome plots, these two are highly recommended.
Both Clannad and Ano Hana are good dramas featuring the development of friendship and a bit of supernatural events.

The main difference between thoso two is that Clannad has a lot more of funny scenes and jokes, while Ano Hana is on the cute side and deeply focused on its long drama.

If you want a soft drama, Clannad is your call. But if you really want the tears to flow, Ano Hana is the choice. They are two sides of the same coin.
