Storyline

In a story set years in the past, Himura Yuu is a studious and diligent young man intent solely on maintaining his top academic position at Otowa Academy. One day, he meets a mysterious girl named Amamiya Yuuko, who, to his surprise, recognizes him. Memories of a distant childhood, memories rather left forgotten - meeting Yuuko again will force Yuu to confront the regrets and sorrows of their collective pasts and presents. In the present, Kuze Shuuichi may seem like a womanizer, but upon closer inspection, is a man who would rather be left alone. Hayama Mizuki, however, is not the type of girl who would let him be, especially after hearing the beautiful sounds of his violin performance. As Mizuki attempts to become closer to him, Kuze attempts to push her away - the tale of their budding relationship is darkened with undertones of an imminent tragedy.

Absolutely amazing
21 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have seen more than 100 anime series, this is among the very best of them, it is absolutely amazing how so strong emotions are expressed in such a suddle manner, I believe having this score currently is extremely unfair to this anime, thus I had to write my first comment ever on IMDb for a show.

Scripts are very well prepared, the graphics are amazing, music is one of the bests ever - this totally puts you into the mood for the emotional roller coaster effects of this anime. Note: It is not for children, should be rated at least pg-15. (no violence or sexual images-language but the topics examined are very delicate (child abuse) and would be tough to handle for younger kids). If you want to understand what I mean better start from episode 6, and get ready for a real shock+treat.

This is one of the perfect examples of Japanese anime art. In case you are newly interested in anime I would also recommend "code geass", "vampire knight", "death note", "gankutsuou", "full metal panic" (especially season 3), "hikaru no go", "Nodame Cantabille", "ano hana" and "skip beat".
