Since its almost the end of the Love month, I hate to break it up to you being on the cloud nine watching all those sweet flicks of romance and love from animes you watched all day, but I think its also good for our eyes to tear for a moment and break our hearts with this emotional anime. Anime is also like the movies we watch, it can also move us in different ways even if its just an imaginative creation of someone’s mind.This is surely a tear-jerking anime ever made!
Tomoya Okazaki is a delinquent who finds life dull and believes he’ll never amount to anything. Along with his friend Sunohara, he skips school and plans to waste his high school days away.One day while walking to school, Tomoya passes a young girl muttering quietly to herself. Without warning she exclaims “Anpan!” (a popular Japanese food) which catches Tomoya’s attention. He soon discovers the girl’s name is Nagisa Furukawa and that she exclaims things she likes in order to motivate herself. Nagisa claims they are now friends, but Tomoya walks away passing the encounter off as nothing.
