Life is hard. Paying the bills, Remembering the answers to that really tough math quiz, Choosing an anime or manga to satisfy that vampire-esque craving. Or sometimes its finding love. Aoi Hana is an anime that expresses many of those moments of struggle in a daily life, especially in the life of one of its title characters Fumi. Fumi is your average teenage girls just struggling with all of lives common struggles. School, friendship, love?
Premise is A typical. Nice twist in sexuality. Not uncommon is anime genres, I am not unmoved by its plot, with that said I must say that Aoi Hana can hold its own against any storyline.
Animation was average. Certain background scenes looked beautiful, I find pieced well with its soundtrack makes for a calming and charming animation.
Soundtrack was also A typical, but it soothes and calms with its wispy piano blowing in the breeze with animation that compliments.
Characters I found well developed. Amazing reconnection between the title characters from beginning to end.
I must say that "Slice Of Life" anime just sells me. Had many different elements to that "Slice Of Life" feel on the wave of Honey & Clover, 5 centimeters per second, to even NANA. No matter what your feelings are towards same-sex anything. An anime fan or Otaku should put that aside and be proud that they watched a fine anime such as Aoi Hana.
