The best Anime ever
12 January 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I as well, have never written any review for anything. But I think this anime was a real masterpiece, so I have to do it justice! I can't even begin to explain how it touched my heart. Even if you're not into romance anime, or you're not into music, or even you're not into anime at all, you really have to watch it. The story is simple and not very new or inventive, but yet, the storytelling, the amazing art (Oh my God, the art and animation was ammazing!!!) , the fantastic music, the lighting, montage and direction, had made a simple plot into the best series I have ever seen in my life. everything is in place in this anime, and even when I felt a character or event was out of place at first, it would beautifully come into place and contribute to the whole plot and it's main purpose. I truly felt "This is Art" in the last episode. If you watch this anime (which you definitely should!) be sure to watch it till the end, because the last episode is unbelievable, a true true masterpiece.
