A group of friends—Nonoka Komiya, Koharu Shiihara, Shione Togawa, and twins Yuzuki and Souta Mizusaka—once attempted to summon a flying saucer to grant their wishes. After thinking that they failed, they called it a day. However, soon afterward, Nonoka abruptly moved out of Kiriya City, breaking the bond of their circle. Little did the group know, they were successful and the saucer has been floating in the sky since then, waiting to fulfill its purpose.

Seven years later, Nonoka returns to Kiriya, all but forgetting everything regarding her life there. She meets Noel, a little girl wearing strange clothes, and through her, Nonoka begins to remember the past and the friends she left behind. From there, she strives to reforge her severed relationship with the others as she uncovers the mysteries connecting Noel, the saucer, and the wishes they once cherished together.

The basic plot (without any spoilers) revolves around a UFO or "disk" which hovers over a small town. Nonoka (the main protagonist) is moving back with her father to this town, after living in the city due to her mother's health issues. Nonoka is suprised to find a small girl named Noel waiting for her, and that her and a group of (now distant) friends were responsible for initially summoning the disk. As she begins to re-connect with her past acquittances drama unfolds, as specifically with Shione, who resents her for Nonoka for forgetting about her.

Mixed Feelings
Short Version of this review:
This anime is over-looked and pretty underrated but in a good way. Not in the fact that its shit but in the fact that it wasn't really known when airing. This show is worth a watch and heartwarming. The only strong factor may be its story with its simplicity and way of storytelling. The art and animation are good for the most part while the characters lack in potential.

The Review:
The slice of life genre is like an escape goat from all the thrillers and actions out there, its like a fresh breath of air from the blood and maturity and ...

So I might be a little too harsh in my review on this, but regardless it is still how I feel. I originally dropped this anime. I was just done with it, but I wanted to give it another chance. I was unfortunately let down. So positives. The setting is interesting for a short little series. Not overstay its welcome. The art work is ok, and honestly these two things are the things that bring me in. They did a decent job on this part. Now the negatives. The character and the story is so boring and stale. Most importantly stale. Even a bad story ...
