After earthquakes suddenly took place in the Kumamoto Prefecture, Natsuna Keyaki lost contact with her dearest online friend, Itsuki. With nothing but a drawn picture of the landscape, Natsuna embarks on a journey from Tokyo to Kumamoto to find her.

When Natsuna gets lost in a rural area of the disaster-stricken prefecture, she encounters a policeman and an energetic middle school girl named Izumi Chiba. Izumi, along with her hospitable family members, offers Natsuna shelter and information to assist her in her quest. With these kind locals helping her on every step of the way, Natsuna moves closer to discover what happened to Itsuki.

Natsunagu! is a very cute short show about a girl who wants to meet up with someone she met in an online game after an earthquake hit the area her friend lives in.

// Story // 9/10
This one is a simple to understand show, nothing complex about it, but it's simplicity makes it good.
Natsuna met a girl on an online game and after an earthquake hit where her friend lives, she wanted to check on her, especially after said friend sent her a text saying "i want to see you", before the game shut down, cutting all ties between them.

*Spoiler Warning*

Please, take a seat and let me tell you why this anime sucks.

I honestly would have skipped this if it wasn't for the fact I scrolled down the winter-anime-list until the end. Since there are so many, I skip many that don't seem interesting enough to try. Among the unpopular anime I started watching "Natsunagu", mainly because of the cover. It has a really cool-looking one and and as for usual I gave it a try and oh my, what I found wasn't pleasing.

We are introduced to the protagonist who for some reason wants to meet her best "friend" because she had met her read more

This was an enjoyable watch overall.

The story is pretty simple as you can probably tell by the synopsis; I would say it isn't executed as well as it could have been. Some episodes seemed to kind of lose my interest with what was actually happening story-wise but I kept watching because I enjoyed the art/music.

The art is absolutely beautiful, lots of very nice landscape scenes with sunsets and mountains. It feels quite simple but has a certain vibe to it that is aesthetically pleasing. The art-style goes well with the music choices, in my opinion.

Sound is pretty good. I enjoyed almost all of read more

Reuploaded, forgive my bad typing skills.

TL;DR Review:

Story - 8: A Tokyo student decides to travel Kumamoto to meet her online friend she lost contact with after the Kumamoto earthquakes. The concept of meeting an online friend is surprisingly relatable.
Art - 8: Unique and nice to look at. The animation isn't bad either.
Sound - 7: Nothing too special or memorable, but it was nice to listen to in the moment.
Character - 7: Normal characters. Nothing special about them.
Enjoyment - 7: Some episodes felt rushed, with long pauses between dialogue and lack of sound effects at the right moments. Annoying, but not discouraging to read more
