After a three-year coma due to a car accident, Haruka Suzumiya finally leaves Keyaki General Hospital. The young woman slowly gets accustomed to the outside world thanks to the warmth of her loving family and caring boyfriend Takayuki Narumi—who broke up with the girlfriend he had made during Haruka's hospitalization so that he could pursue his former love.

However, afraid to be a burden to Takayuki, Haruka suggests breaking up with him and then abandons him in a departing train. More determined than ever to start a career in picture book writing, Haruka devotes herself to studying for the university admission exam. At the same time, Takayaki tries to land a stable job despite the lasting economic depression. Although they pursue seemingly different goals, will Takayuki and Haruka be able to ultimately reunite?

[NOTE: This is a review/ disorganized thought thesis about the entirety of the Rumbling Hearts series, including every spin off! Spoiler warning should be obvious.]

Where do I even begin with Rumbling Hearts? I originally found this series by pressing random on a new anime site, it led me to Akane Maniax, a spin off of the series Rumbling Hearts, it’s where I began the journey. I was perplexed by who the characters were and how familiar everyone was but still found enjoyment, the comedy especially in the first half was different from modern generic comedy. After finishing Akane Maniax I searched in on MAL to ...

I must say I really hated the ending of the original series.. but that is just my selfishness talking.
I was happy when I saw this version of the story which has a better end , happy people, caring people, loving people.

The original had more dramatic scenes that sometimes made you cry which I is why I appreciate it
but this is very well made as well.

You can tell the difference in these endings because of the feelings expressed in them. It is always good to see such hardships in life because they remind you of what is important in your life and how you ...

Mixed Feelings
I think this show was really bad, compared the original. Even as a Haruka supporter, I couldn't seem to enjoy this show. It felt rushed, and idiotic, and I didn't like the animation at all - its much different from the first series (not same animators)

Somehow they just made it look plain and boring, and changed too much on the characters. The only good thing was Haruka moving on with her life, and she finally got the spotlight to show how strong she are, even if we did see some of it in the original series too.
