A fantastic anime!
1 June 2008 | by jono19See all my reviews

First of all, I just want to say, that this is the first anime I've seen that hasn't been about ninjas, samurai, or action in general. It's a story about life, love, hard times, painful memories, and lost souls. The story focuses on a 22 year old college drop out, who spends all his time cooped up in his room. The longer he stays, the more difficult it is to change. I don't want to give any of the story away, but everyone can relate to these characters. They are real, and their words, and actions genuine. A must see for anyone that has ever questioned themselves, or their existence. Makes you want to tell the world about it!
