Nice art, nice music, not much going on in terms of plot. Also, some questionable writing. I know this was an attempt at being josei, but I'm pretty sure she wouldn't be like "yeah let's just carry on and have noodles together" after he drops "you need to get over your dead husband by banging me".

Pretty ironic considering your avatar is Ano Hana, which is essentially the same concept.
Quite impressed with the first episode. Good to see an anime with adult characters again, and an original story. I have a feeling I'm going to love this one, too bad it's only going to be 11 episodes :3

She's obviously trying to avoid talking/doing something about it. Tomorrow being their anniversary and all. One of the advantages of not having teenage characters and a high school setting is that everything doesn't have to be so overly dramatic.
This is promising. It's obvious where this show is going, and I like it. Stories like this grab me the most. Unless it goes on an extremely unlikely and unexpected direction, I will definitely be following this.
Absolutely the best show of the season so far, will be following up until the very end. Thank god summer isn't turning out too horrific.
MC surprised me with how great his snarky nature was, and I loved seeing actual romantic progression and a confession within the first episode. Interactions between the dead husband and MC were a standout, I'm very glad only the MC can see him and the wife can't - kind of forces them to interact. There's a lot of potential in there for pulling at the heart strings, great drama/comedy, character development, gahhh I'm just very impressed and happy that I liked it so much.
"One of these days, I'm gonna steal your wife"... Haha. Nice one.
And the dead husband being jealous is so cute [at 1st I thought, he was just the brother of the girl, hehe]! Looking forward to the next episode. This anime is unexpectedly soooo interesting and unique. Love it!
-Rokka is instantly captivating. I found myself attached to her very quickly, and I was excited to see her story unfold throughout the episode.
-All I remembered from the description was "that flower shop show". The supernatural element took me completely by surprise. I thought Atsushi was going to be her brother or something. While it's not my primary concern, the relationship between Hazuki and Atsushi is definitely interesting to watch.
-I feel like they got a lot out of the way for a first episode. We know a good deal about Rokka's past, and a confession is already on the table. I honestly hope they establish a romantic relationship sooner rather than later, as I think that triangle is really gonna be the most interesting part of the show.
Not that there's much to compete with yet, but this is easily my personal anime of the summer season so far! Been a long time since I've seen a good josei series. Can't wait for more!
While the OP appeals to me, it's the ED that I just adore. The moving frame and the singer's voice are just lovely. What stood out to me was the superb voice acting which is more important in this particular genre than anything else in order to convey the characters' mood. Also, that's how I like my romances: no meandering around and with actual focus on development.
Why is this soo Good? i havent watch one of these anime in a while but damn this really a appealed to me, im not much of a OP, ED, kinda of person so that wasnt really all that for me, im glad that i watch this, cuz i was not gonna.
I've been waiting for this since I first picked up the scanlation several months ago. It's a story that I fell in love with after just reading the first chapter. The first episode did not disappoint. It's wonderful seeing the characters in motion and their designs are absolutely flawless. Hazuki is HOT!
I'm glad I was looking forward to this since it is even better than I thought it could be. With all that nice feeling of feelings as they swirl around and people who don't just freak out at the big shifts to occur. There's thought put into it even with how soon it felt like the confession came.
Ridiculous how easily this takes the pole position amongst the summer series. I've seen the episode three times already, and could probably go for more. As you can probably tell, I'm loving this, it just does all the things right.
Well-rounded characters, the details (the nervous Hazuki being greeted by the usual Rokka, and how he exhales in relief etc.), nice animation, realistic interactions and reactions and of course, a couple of charming leads. And oh, they're actual adults for a change!
Good show, good show! Jolly good show!
I definitely thought that I wouldn't enjoy it but it's such a pleasant surprise. I thinks it's cause I thought that she would be aware of her husbands spirit and they'd still be in love, and then it would just be angsty melodrama for Hazuki-kun. But clearly that's not how it is. It's still a little angsty, but I like it XD
I like Hazuki-kun's personality, too.
LOL, it's hilarious whenever her husband's spirit just floats around in the store.
Okay, I love this. For me, a slice-of-life/romance/josei lover this is like, I don't know, manna from heaven. Yuuichi Nakamura + Jun Fukuyama. My body wasn't ready enough. Plus that main female lead. She's fabulous. No wonder Hazuki fell for her. I would, too.
