A heart touching story, 23 April 2006
Author: pawwof from WI, United States

Watching this series for the first time I am still sitting here in front of my PC not believing it is over. The story was so real and the daily life problems of the people so, so, well so much like mine I feel like I have looked into a mirror. The strange thing for me was that I thought I would have related more to Touma, the male lead, but in fact I related to Urara the most. With out telling to much of the plot it is hard to say much but that her confusion and pain dealing with life is done so very real it will truly hurt your heart to watch her.

This series does a great job of giving the viewer a look into the inner drives and thoughts of each player in the story that even when they are behaving badly, which they often do, you can't help but feel for them and wish them the best. If you are looking for an anime that will truly touch your heart and one you will make you look at your one life and what drives you. Sakura Diaries is your anime.

The only thing I did not like about the series is that it had to end. :D 5 out of 5 stars
