To start with, I was very hesitant towards watching this anime. "Another high school romance" is what went through my mind. There is nothing particularly original about Kimi Ni Todoke but I couldn't help it; I had to keep watching.
The main character is shy, an outcast, and overall just a lonely soul. We can all agree that we have been in that position many times, which is what made me like Sawako instantly. Kazehaya is the one who starts motivating her along with Yano and Chizuru. Throughout the whole series you can't help but want to cheer for her as she slowly breaks out from her shell.
Overall, this anime is worth a watch. The intro and outro songs fit the anime perfectly and sets the mood. I'm a guy and I loved it, so hopefully others will too. read more

Continuing the story, After Story starts to slowly deviate from the other characters in the story, and starts focusing only on Tomoya and Nagisa, the main characters. From this point is where I as a person in the real world, start to identify with the story. Simple yet confusing and heart braking moments start to happen. More than likely you will ask yourself "Why does the world likes to screw people over like that."
I have nothing severely negative to say about After Story. Though If you are a guy like me, you'll kinda want to roll your eyes at the corny moments, and childish romance. Regardless, After Story will touch your heart. The art is superb, the music is repetitive but enjoyable, and obviously the story is heartwarming and sad.
I suggest that if you have not watched Clannad, to watch it. Both series are enjoyable and unforgettable experiences.

Lets begin with the characters. Each character has their own time to shine. Some characters have their story retold throughout the show with some minor details added in every once in a while. There is a strong sense of hardship with each characters story. Place close attention to each character for it is very important to somewhat understand the rest of the show. The main character Utena is very easy to read, its Anthy that makes you wonder the most throughout the series.
As you may have read from other reviews, there is much symbolism in this anime. Some symbolism is just random, others kind of makes sense, and others are obvious for the trained eye.
I very much enjoyed this anime, it is very original and epic in its own way. That does not mean it does not have its flaws. You will most probably tend to skip the beginning of the fights, and the annoying drama actors behind the rose wall. Many scenes are repetitive and are replayed throughout the entire series.
Other than that, i really think more people should watch this anime and share their thoughts. It really is a good watch once you get the rhythm of it.

The first episode makes you think that the rest of the anime will be interesting, but truth be told that it really is not. The whole story is pointless, its your typical love triangle but with an incest twist.
Its best to watch it for yourself, you might like it more than i did, or maybe not.

Story wise, its nothing special. Its how it was portrayed that makes it very entertaining. There is rarely a dull moment in it and is constantly making sure you are up to date with what has happened so far, which does get a bit annoying if you marathon through the show.
In conclusion, this anime deserves a watch. If you like romantic comedies then this show is for you.

At first, I contemplated dropping this anime due to "me" not understanding jack squat for the first 3-4 eps. After an internal fight I decided to continue, and its a good thing I did!
First of, this is not you typical anime. It starts out with what seems to be an understandable plot but readily shifts into all sorts of head scratching fun around the third episode. Its around here that you may want to drop it which is understandable, but please don't. The main plot starts to make its appearance around the middle of the series and takes you for a spin. Of course, even then you will not completely understand what is going on, which is done on purpose by its creator.
Overall, I am glad I watched this. It is different but in a good way. read more
The movies plot was not the most original but tolerable. Art wise it remains the same as the other Bleach movie though new angles can be noticed if you pay attention to detail. The soundtrack is possibly the best compared to the other Bleach movies, of course thats my own personal opinion/taste. If you are a Bleach fan then this movie is a nice side story and well worth your time.
Its worth a watch. read more
Sure it has the typical Shounen components, but it is more original than you would think. Bleach has many mysteries that have yet to be revealed, keeping you always wondering and wanting more. Give it a try if you have not already and see for yourself since everyone has different perspectives and tastes. read more
