At first glance, the plot may seem relatively simple, but as it goes on more is revealed about the events leading up to the accident and why the characters act the way they do in present day. It also does very well at its attempt to tackle sensitive subjects such as grievance, unrequited love and depression. Plus, the bittersweet ending was heart wrenching!
I’m a sucker for this genre, and this has got to be one of my faves! You’re definitely going to need a box of tissues when watching Anohana.
