Bokura Ga Ita
Overall, it was an awesome Manga. And when I say awesome, it was a real-deal, no kidding, sparkly eyes, totally worth-it kind of awesome.
Back when I discovered Bokura Ga Ita, it was an accidental encounter in YouTube. I started with Anime, got intrigued by it’s ending and read the Manga. A lot happened and all really did began in the train platform. Although one must say, it ended there, as it literally was, the real story began when Yano left for Tokyo.
The story isn’t anything light and refreshing. It has darkness, mysteries, heartaches and more heartaches. They all got hurt and moved on. They learned how to love again. Learned how to let go and to live again after all what they’ve been through.
They were there.
Another great Manga has ended. It will always be a top favorite.

Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai
There’s nothing quite like the loss of a loved one for changing a person. We always feel that death is such an alien concept, it exists but is somehow detached and unrelated to our own little world until it comes knocking on our doorstep. Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai (We Still Don’t Know the Name of the Flower We Saw That Day), tries to show us just how powerful an effect death can have on us.
The keyword is ‘tries’, and for the most part, AnoHana succeeds. It is one of those anime that illustrates perfectly the idea that the relative distance to perfection is inversely proportional to the obviousness of huge, glaring flaws. For everything that AnoHana does just beautifully right, there is usually something little it gets horribly wrong.
There’s no denying AnoHana is fine piece of work. Everything from animation to sound, characterization to story are all quality material and together form both a visually and emotionally satisfying experience. The anime is far past the point of debate about whether watching it would be enjoyable and worth one’s while, because it most certainly is.
