Watched this film a few weeks ago and it is still stuck in my head. My boyfriend was watching it for a film class he is taking on screwball comedies and this one just caught my eye. It is an imaginative and fun film that leaves you wondering what is up and what is down. Will definitely be watching again!
I have a serious soft spot for geraniums, especially the scented ones. I can’t pass them up, and I over-winter them, too. It’s so lovely to walk past one and give it a gentle brush so that it fills the room with a subtle aroma. The scented ones are not showy, and the generic ones are easy to take for granted, but I for one simply love them all. ~AR
I just wanted to put together my thoughts on Anohana. Anohana was written and directed by the same people who produced the Toradora! anime in 2009. Initially, I was hesitant to watch Anohana because while I liked Toradora! I had no desire to watch it again. It is a top notch anime for its type but nothing about it really made it stand out as great. Finally my boyfriend convinced me to watch Anohana and boy am I glad he did! This is a simple anime that is made of nothing other than amazing. The plot moves in each episode, so you never feel bogged down with filler, but at the same time each character is given an intimate portrayal that makes you want to root for them all, even when they have conflicting goals. To top it all off, the ending is just heartbreaking. I haven’t ever seen an anime that made me cry, but I was sobbing for the last ten minutes of this series. Will definitely be watching again in the future.
