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.

Story 9/10
This anime is not an average drama/slice of life/rom-com/sci-fi, this is a masterpiece for me. The story is very unique.
The story is about a boy who meets a girl that dies in the world war and is able to travel back in time. At first, I was confused because there was no character introduction and I was shocked when they time travel for the first time. But I enjoy watching every episode of this anime.

Art 8/10
I love the old-style drawings of this anime. I like the animation it is more like the "Monogatari Series" style.

This is one of those titles that doesn't fit the three episode rule. The first few episodes give hints that the show has more to offer, but mostly feel juvenile and kind of generic. However, there is more going on than might be apparent at first glance. The story grows deeper and by the end I even appreciated the beginning for the set up that it was. I wouldn't normally say it's worth watching bad episodes to get to the good part, but the later episodes gave me a different perspective on the early ones. The last episode is a ...

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 ...
