Throughout life, people come and go, eventually departing with a goodbye. For childhood friends Natsumi Aizawa, Yuka Hanaki, and Rinko Tamaki, they are confronted with this harsh reality when they are told their group's fourth member, Saki Mizukoshi, is moving away at the end of summer. With this news threatening their friendship, the four girls seek out a magic stone from local folklore—hoping to use its rumored wish-granting powers to keep them together. After following the steps of the supposed legend, they are surprised to discover that the magic is real.

While the summer's end looms over the horizon, Natsumi and the others use the stone to ensure they have no lingering regrets until the end. But regardless of what the future might bring, these four friends will never forget the colorful miracles they experience during what could be their final summer together.

An anime about middle school girls playing the game of life as they make wishes that becomes true.

It's a very good Slice of Life if you're just in for the friendship and drama. There's also a little bit of Yuri bait but other than that the anime is just focused towards a group of girls doing their everyday life activities.

It's good. Very, very good. Terrifyingly realistic in a sense as well. This is highly recommended to people who are looking for a girls-only Slice of Life anime about friendship with a little bit of drama and a little bit of Yuri ( bait ...

Some people felt disappointed and said that Natsu-iro Kiseki wasted the potential from its premise: like, you have a wishes-granting rock but you don't use it to do 'amazing things', and the rock itself does not always work exactly like you have expected, either.

- Okay, so anime viewers, you haven't been bored by the trope "an interesting plot with an easy-to-use wishes-granting power", have you?

When I was a kid, I spent much time watching Doraemon (you know? it's one of the legendary manga/anime, The longest-beloved kid M/A) and I've got enough with that trope.

So I'm glad that Natsu-iro Kiseki didn't follow that old trope, instead ...

Mixed Feelings
At first I really didn’t know what to make of this series after watching the first episode. There seems to be some magical power within a giant rock that sits on the temple grounds that one of the characters lives at. Growing up they would gather together around the rock and make a wish, that they would become successful pop idols in the future. But it grants the wish only if all four sincerely wish for the same thing.

There’s really nothing overly spectacular about this series, but it is a fun drama ...
