A powerful and mature drama
28 May 2004 | by PaladuckSee all my reviews

Make no mistake - this isn't a children's anime.

Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien (The Eternity You Wish For) is a 14-episode anime based off of a popular Hentai game in Japan. Despite its origins, Kimi has no nudity, although there are several tastefully done sex scenes.

The story centers around four friends, Narumi Takayuki, Hayase Mitsuki, Shinji Taira, and Haruka Suzumiya. All the elements of your typical drama are present, and really the story introduces nothing new in the genre. However, the strengths of the anime are its characters - their problems are very profound on a fundamental level, and it is not difficult to associate oneself with the difficulties they are going through. Flashbacks, the passage of time, and chronological ordering of the plot is also masterfully manipulated.

Expect not only plenty of drama in the story, but in your own heart - the ending - which will leave you either pleasantly satisfied or heartbroken - has been the subject of raging debates.

I highly recommend this to anyone, as it has quickly become one of my favorite animes of all time. No anime I have ever watched, nor any live-action show has ever moved me like this one has - not even Grave of the Fireflies, which was tragic and beautiful in its own right. Watch it and enjoy it, but prepare to be depressed. And also - it's okay to cry once in a while.

10/10
