I really love this anime. The (Japanese) voice actors did an amazing job.
What I really liked about the story line: While it may have been a little over the top at times, the thing it went right back to was family and friends. I love that you can watch just about any episode with really being lost, as well as the fact that in each episode there were things comming out of another episode.
What I liked about the animation: It wasn't too hard on your eyes. The animation was... in a since it was soft and smooth. The animation reminded me of a few other anime that I've seen in the past.
What I liked about the sound: It was very beautiful, easy to listen to, and played all thoughout the anime. And it never really played over the diologue, or got overly annoying.
What I liked about the characters: They were very complete as far as characters go. And in each episode you learn a little more about the background of each one.
I love all of the women (strong and weak) in this anime. They really gave me a lot of laughs... and the way Sunohara was pretty much always being beat up by them.
In this anime Nagisa was the real heart and Tomoya was... well he was the spirit! Without the heart, the spirit couldn't work as hard as he did. He did all he could for the heart. And the heart worked harder to keep the spirit up! At lease that's the way I see it.
Nagisa was the center of the anime. Without her, Tomoya never would have gathered everyone together. And with Tomoya Nagisa never would have shown so brightly. They were the absolute center and brought out the best team work throughout the whole anime as they met many new characters, and faced many different situations.
I loved Tomoya's character. He's a funny guy, who's very kind and generous. He stops whatever he's doing to help someone else out. And even though he's constantly telling everyone how he's a delinguent, he's better side still shines through when one of his friends is in trouble or just in need of his assistance. I also love his trickery ways. He's always messing with who ever he can. And I really can't blame him. In a small boring town like his, who wouldn't want to have a little bit of fun every now and then... espically when everyone around you would easily fall for your tricks?
I love Nagisa's Character. She's a little shy, (okay maybe not just a little shy but still...) She's kind and always considerate of others. She's well mannered and wants to help whenever she can. Her dream was to become a member of the drama club, but after decovering that it had been closed... her dream then changed to wanting to start it up again. Nagisa isn't carefree... and she can be very emtional, but she does her best and won't settle for being lazy or taking easy ways out. As far as streangth goes... Nagisa isn't the strongest, but as far as heart goes, I think she has just about everyone beat. ;)
I love all of the characters voices. They fit just perfectly with each one's personality (in the Japanese version).
So over all I give this anime a 10. I loved every aspect about this anime. All the character personalities and all of the situation that each friend found themselves in. And that's really saying something coming from me. But don't take my word for it. Go. Watch it yourself and then write your own review.
Thanks for reading this. And have a spectacular day!
