Kawamo wo Suberu Kaze
Returning to Japan to visit her parents after five years abroad, Noriko does not know what to expect. While some things in Kanazawa have changed and some things have stayed the same, Noriko cannot help but dredge up memories of her youth and secrets she thought she had left behind.

Trapped in a loveless marriage, Mimi has little excitement in her life until a rendezvous with the local garbage man, Kou, turns into something more. Now living with Kou—but still married to someone else—Mimi reflects on the decisions that brought her to this point and whether she should prioritize appearances or her happiness.

Jinsei Best Ten
Hatoko Nikawa has a habit of reflecting on her "best ten," the most memorable moments of her life, but is somewhat dismayed that, despite her 39 years on Earth, her best ten moments all occurred before her 18th birthday. Hearing that her middle school reunion is coming up, Hatoko hopes to reunite with her first love without knowing how much he has changed or whether he can live up to her expectations.

Dokoka Dewanai Koko
With an adult son who sleeps all day, a daughter who barely returns home, and a husband who lost his job, Maho Katou bears a lot of stress. Working nights at a local store to support her family, she has little time for sleep or pleasure. With Maho constantly overexerting herself, it may only be a matter of time until she collapses under pressure.

"With age comes wisdom, but sometimes age comes alone." - Oscar Wilde

With the passing of every year one can't help but feel nostalgic at times. As you get older, you might find yourself asking, "Where did all the time go?" or "When did I get so old?" In those moments, we often find ourselves looking back towards the past. There were moments that you felt happy and sad, content and depressed, ecstatic and lazy, full of love and full of regret. There were the soaring highs and there were the abysmal lows. There were moments when you wondered what if. Would things have turned out ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (1/4 eps)
The best parts of this were the sound effects and the artwork. Mixing the usual soft sytle for the characters with some kind of photo extrapolated backgrounds really added to the overal picture. The sounds were so realistic that when I was not looking, I would have believed it was live action.
The main problem I have with this special was the characters, mainly the lead. I don't like her. I don't hate her, but there is just not a lot to like either. She regrets the decisions she has made, but anyone with some common sense could have advised her ...

This type of anime is probably my favorite , i love the calm story-telling anime with new characters every episode very much but this one was a bit different .
I didn't like this one probably because of the way it was presented , the anime tries to make it like all the main characters are good characters and what they did was right , for example : the first episode had a very very shitty person as the main character , someone who cheated on their lover and hid the fact that she was pregnant from another man from her husband , the same thing ...
