So, this is something new I think I want to try out. There are sometimes I watch something, and it just blows my mind of how much I love it! A good tv show for me, is a TV show that keeps me interested and makes me want to watch the next episode.
So, a few weeks ago I decided to choose one tv show and one movie to watch every week. Now, I am on my 3rd week, and on my 4th tv show. So the first tv show I want to talk about is the first one I watched, the one I watched in a day. And that is because I didn’t have this blog when I first saw that tv show. And I have to say, those 11 episodes of that anime was amazing. I watched the whole thing in one day, just binge-watched the whole thing. And that is no something I often do!
The first show I watched was Anohana – The Flower We Saw That Day.
I have to say, I didn’t expect to like it this much!
Let’s talk a little bit about what it is about first:
Jinta “Jintan” Yadomi is peacefully living as a recluse, spending his days away from school and playing video games at home instead. One hot summer day, his childhood friend, Meika “Menma” Honma, appears and pesters him to grant a forgotten wish. He pays her no mind, which annoys her, but he doesn’t really care. After all, Menma already dies years ago.
At first, Jinta thinks that he is merely hallucinating due to the summer heat, but he is later on convinced that what he sees truly is the ghost of Menma. Jinta and his group of childhood friends grew apart after her untimely death, but they are drawn together once more as they try to lay Menma’s spirit to rest. Re-living their pain and guilt, will they be able to find the strengh to help not only Menma move on – but themselves as well?
This anime got me to feel all my emotions. It was easy to understand what was going on, and you slowly got to know what happened to Menma. I like that you get to see how all the characters feel about this, seeing how they react to everything, and what happens when everything they are trying to forget are dragged up again. I also like that you get to see Menma’s family, and see how they are doing.
If you have never seen an anime, this is a good show to start with. Now, I haven’t been watching too much anime in my life, but I know that there are some pretty complex anime shows out there. This show is rated TV-PG, so I will advice you to maybe watch this show first if your child wants to see it, because for me, being 22 I don’t react the same way to things. So for my taste, this is nothing. And what your child is allowed to see and not, and how much a child is ok with seeing, that is not up for me to say.
