In modern-day Japan, 13-year-old Hajime Yasaka moves to the countryside to stay with his grandfather. On the way to his new home, a lost Hajime finds himself in a cafe called Ark, where he immediately falls in love with one of the waitresses: the gorgeous Sayoko "Arashi" Arashiyama. While Arashi is initially unconcerned with the boy, her attitude quickly changes after she grasps Hajime's hand, leading her to believe they are "connected."

As it turns out, Arashi is anything but a regular teenager—in reality, she is the ghost of a girl who perished in World War II. By touching a man she connects with, she gains the ability to travel back in time. Delighted to have found someone who can unlock her powers, Arashi asks Hajime to help with her mission: to save civilians from the carnage of the war that claimed her life. Smitten with Arashi, Hajime readily agrees. But as the two get further involved with Arashi's past, they soon discover that she is not the only one able to transcend time.

It’s a crime that this series seems to be so unappreciated and under viewed when clichéd garbage such as Maria Holic gets overhyped and legions of fanboys. I only bring up Maria Holic because it was made by the same studio, SHAFT, and I feel both have a kind of niche quality to them. However where Maria falls on its face, Natsu no Arashi! emerges as one of the best shows of 2009.

To sum up the storyline in a word it would be; quirky. From the beginning of the first episode and from just looking at the promotional art you might think ...

Stories 9/10:
Natsu no Arashi (summer storm) is not like your average drama/slice of life series.
It started the series by some complicated things like time travel and no character introduction at all, somehow this will give 2 kind of impression for the viewer :
1. This is a "boring" anime.
2. This is interesting, must watch the other eps.
And if you choose the 2nd option (recommended by me), you will eventually enjoy the series.
There story revolves around some boy named "Yasaka Hajime" spending his summer time in his grandfather house. There he met with a sixteen years old girl name "Arashiyama Sayoko" who claimed to be ...

Mixed Feelings
Natsu no Arashi was a manga written by Kobayashi Jin, known for his work with School Rumble, and published by Square Enix. In 2009 it received a two series anime adaptation from Shaft. The same studio behind the Rec series and the sub-par Ef A Tale of Memories. But it's not all bad. They also did the work for Madoka and a bunch of stuff I've never seen and can't comment on. So, how does this one hold up? Let's look at the first series.


It's summer time and thirteen year old Yasaka Hajime is moving to a new area. When stopping by a small cafe ...
