Why are protagonists who have default evil/glare faces an archetype these days in anime O.o?

Loved the OP/ED; didn't realize that was Jun Fukuyama as the ghost

Daaaaaaaamn, so good!
Rokka looks more cute here than in the manga...
I really like it. Oh, and Hazuki and Shimao's seiyuus are perfect too. c:

I kinda felt like the drawing's similar to Sakamichi no Apollon.

Well, for now, i'll stick around and see what happens, great start.

I have high hopes for this series, hopefully it will focus on the drama and romance and not the comedy.

All I can say is WOW. This will definitely shape up to be one of my favourites this season. The OP is the best OP I've heard for a long time, and the ED is great too. What good song choices!

I love Atsushi and his way of talking. The interaction between Atsushi and Hazuki is also very enjoyable to watch. Had me cracking up! Rokka is beautifully drawn. I get the feeling that maybe she cut her hair so short to mourn her husband, since she had longer hair in the OP.

Such a great romance! I loved the op, ending, and the art is beautiful. I enjoy the ghost. Atsushi is so cute.

My expectations for new shows this season are just all completely wrong it seems. I was completely expecting Natsuyuki Rendezvous to be a cliched rom-drama with a ghost element. I was not expecting well defined and interesting characters with a lot of nuance to them. Nor was I expecting such a rapid development of the plot. Sure it'll probably pull back in the next episode and nothing will come of that confession, but I can't help but be pretty hopeful of being proven wrong now.

this anime came out of nowhere for me, I'd never heard of it, or seen any previews, but damn, if it continues at the mature no nonsense pace its been keeping it could easily fall into my favorites as a romantic scfi like Ano Natsu de Matteru did. an adult romantic meoldy out of nowhere wow wowie!!! @///@

A really nice follow up to 'Kids on the Slope'.

Always nice to get adult main characters. Really looking forward to the rest of the episodes. The show was both visually and emotionally charming. Characters were believable and likable, and their interactions were humorous and engaging when they needed to be.

5/5 - The best I've seen from this Summer season so far. Always nice to get a good Josei show.

This episode was so good. I love the pure love that Hazuki has for Rokka. Wow, I have high hopes for this.

Not to mention the ending theme was so, so pretty. <3

Nice first episode really liking the concept. Nice to have an anime that revolves around adult relationships every now and again.

Loved the episode, probably the only anime i'll get into this season.

We got Lelouch and Tsuchimi Gai in an anime and the lead female is Ichigo's mom!

Beautiful OP song tbh as well as the ending.

First 5 minutes and already a "silent war" and a ghost huh?

Very interested in this series now and good episode 1.

Seems like an anime I would enjoy. Pretty good first episode! :D

ED song was just beautiful. Sounds familiar... probably the singer.

very very good, loved the ending, so beautiful may have to try and learn it at some point, needed some inspiration to sit down and play the piano again!!!

Loved the mix of humour and romance just blended so well. Also just to get such a powerful confession in the first episode was quite shocking but a nice take.

Aw man, I should have watched this on Valentine's Day. This is certainly a unique one. Loving the OP and ED, both invoked strong emotional responses from me despite knowing nothing about this.

ahaha so many unfamiliar faces here.
One of the best romance animes ever :)) it gotta be
Love that ghost character. Wonder why he's not mad at Hazuki for liking his wife? well...i guess it's cuz 3 yrs have past, and he doesn't want his wife to continue alone, he wanted her to be happy.

oh well, anyway, the conversation between the ghost and hazuki is hilarious xDD The ED's really good too

by the way is hazuki's cast Spanner/lampo/teen lambo from KHR?

"You could have an affair with me." Doesn't sound very romantic. Or maybe there's something wrong with the subtitles.

Anyway, the opening was quite boring but I'll forgive that since I'm pretty sure there won't be any kind of tense mood etc. Just being in love and trying to win someone's love, even when that someone is still mourning over her dead husband.

But the show seems interesting, so I'll keep watching.

If a ghost put his/her hand through my chest, I'd die from a heart attack.
