It was only in March 2013 that I started watching this Anime after finishing a few other Animes on Youtube. I was on Youtube and I clicked on it. At first, I didn't really like Full Moon, but I gave it another chance and I'm glad I did.
This is just my opinion, but I believe this story is amazing. No story is completely flawless but this was close to it. Twelve year old Mitsuki has lung cancer and two shinigami show up granting her one life to live. If I was Mitsuki I would be crying and upset, but she wasn't upset she
wanted to live to achieve her dream of being a singer making Eichi, her childhood love, notice her. Mitsuki isn't a little whiny little kid that wants what she wants either she is very kind and helps out everyone. As the story proceeds, you'll notice a cute setting fade away into a dark very depression one.
I enjoy cute drawings. The art was really good. Mitsuki is drawn very cute and so is her older self, Full Moon. I wouldn't say it's perfect but just the look of the characters made me fall in love with them even more. I'm not all that ''I'll only watch an Anime if it has good art" but the better the art the better I'd not drop it and turn away. The bright colors just add on to the Shoujo genre.
I think the sound, or in other words music was the main reason the story touched me. Mitsuki gets granted a wish from Takuto to become a singer until a year later when her fate comes, and her voice is so amazing when she sings. The deepness of her voice and the sound of the music stays in your heart. Whenever you hear it and listen, you will get those sad moments playing in your head like you're back watching it over again. The music plays at the saddest moments of the Anime making it even sadder than it appeared to be. Imagine being a secret 16-year-old singer that nobody knows is actually 12 years old and has lung cancer.
Mitsuki is brave. She doesn't cry, she doesn't even frown. Her smile shows on her face when these shinigami are telling her she'll die in a year. All she wants to do is become a singer, finish off her dream, and then she said she'll be happy. Mitsuki gets sad at some parts in the Anime but she really just deserved the human nature moment to be sad. Takuto is a really nice guy. He always looks out for Mitsuki. If I had a Shinigami, I wish he was mine. Meroko, yes I agree, can be annoying at some parts of the Anime but overall she's just too cute!
Like I said, at first, I didn't enjoy this Anime. Once I got into it the Anime was the best thing I ever watched. I couldn't take my eyes away from it. Just one more episode... I whispered while clicking until the last episode. I got so into to it and so attached to the characters I never wanted it to end! You know that feeling when you want to see how it ends but you don't want it to end? Well I had that awful feeling. When it ended, I lied in bed brokenhearted, I guess you could I say I was a little Anime depressed. I finally got over this but Full moon will always be in my heart.
Overall, this Anime gave me the ride of a lifetime. It has a lot to offer and will make you cry. If you don't believe me, why don't you watch it yourself? You'll see. The characters will make you get so attached you'll want them to become real and talk to you. I know it sounds crazy but they are just that well made.
This is my first review so it's not that good. I apologize.
