Majority of us know this as another sad anime. My friend recommended it to me so I watched it because of that and I was expecting and ready to cry for days. The story itself was quite lacking, very simple with little progress in storyline and mainly focusing on character development and arcs. While its not the sadest anime I watched, I did cry at one main specific part (vague for spoiler reasons). The soundtrack is beautiful, I give major props for that. The timing could be better, felt like they rushed the important parts while dragging out the events that had little impact and ruined the flow of the story more than just a few times. Overall, I would be willing to re-watch it in time with a friend who's never seen it, not by myself just for the heck of it though.
