This anime can probably be described with a few key words: passionate. heartwarming, friendship, sweet and just plain damn GOOD!!!! The animation is also drawn very delicately and pretty. I loved touches like the snow flakes and petals floating into the room.

It was a little unexpected to see episode 3 as focusing on the younger characters. I had expected that we would move back to “now”. However, it does kind of make sense as this episode explains how they fell apart. I’m really keen on seeing the next episode. I want to see Chihaya as an adult!! She’s SOOOOOO innocently adorable!! But I kind of like her long hair! :P
