Akira Tachibana, a reserved high school student and former track runner, has not been able to race the same as she used to since she experienced a severe foot injury. And although she is regarded as attractive by her classmates, she is not interested in the boys around school.

While working part-time at the Garden Cafe, Akira begins to develop feelings for the manager—a 45-year-old man named Masami Kondou—despite the large age gap. Kondou shows genuine concern and kindness toward the customers of his restaurant, which, while viewed by others as soft or weak, draws Akira to him. Spending time together at the restaurant, they grow closer, which only strengthens her feelings. Weighed down by these uncertain emotions, Akira finally resolves to confess, but what will be the result?

After the Rain is a series that desperately wants the audience to be captivated by how melancholic, dramatic, and "true to life" it is. While not being any of the things above.

After the Rain continues the tradition of adapting an already existing manga into an anime. After taking glimpses and peeks at the manga it is easy to see why this was chosen. Not necessarily the premise(which does factor into it), but primarily due to how breathtakingly gorgeous the character art is. You have full pages and covers of immaculate and impressive character designs.

The premise has an added spice to it. It essentially read more

It all started with a broken ankle and faithful encounter over coffee.

Story: (9/10)
Simple, sweet, makes my heart flutter. Like pumpkin custard pudding or black and white cats with white socks or chocolate banana crepes.

This blissful story follows our main protagonist, Akira Tachibana, through her life as a 17 year old high school student. Though she used to be the top athlete in track and field at her school unfortunately after an injury she no longer runs. This has changed her high school life as she overcomes broken relationships and creates new ones.

During a faithful encounter on a rainy day, Kondou meets Tachibana and it gives read more

Instead of your typical romance series, this story takes up on a little twist where a 17 year old high school girl falls head over heels for her 45 year old manager of her part-time job. I must say...this series is such a brilliant reprieve from your usual generic love stories, and it doesn't try forcing stuff, either. I will try to be a bit brief with the details while explaining the best I can.

STORY: An unfortunate accident for our main heroine turns out as a new opportunity in the most unlikely of situations. The story really shines due to the way of how unique read more

I'm generally not one to offer review of anything prior to its conclusion since you usually end up with egg on your face, however, I feel the need in this case since it seems that Koi wa ameagiri has not been given a fair shake by the wider community.
The most frequent excuse I hear is related to the age difference - this usually comes from people who'll then proceed to watch any number of Ecchi Harem stacked to the rafters with Lolis. The main female character is 17, which means she's of legal age of consent in most western countries. I'm sure you'll all be read more
