I've been pretty bored for the past couple of days. That plus insomnia means lots of time on the computer. So, while checking out reviews on That Guy with the Glasses, I watched JesuOtaku's Top 20 Anime Theme Songs of 2011. That turned out to be a good decision for one reason: an idea of new anime to watch. The one I wanted to watch most? Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Boku-tachi wa Mada Shiranai (We Still Don't Know the Name of the Flower We Saw), or AnoHana for short.

The summary, pulled from Anime News Network, is as follows:

Five childhood friends grow apart after the death of Meiko Honma, close playmate of them all. Jinta Yadomi, leader of the group when they were kids, neglects high school and lives as a shut-in when he unexpectedly starts seeing the ghost of Meiko, who can only interact with him and no one else. She has returned to ask Jinta to fulfill the forgotten wish she made as a kid.

I started the show this morning since I had given up all notions of sleep and finished it about an hour ago. I couldn't stop watching! It was relatable to me on more than one level. It wasn't exactly what I was expecting when I watched the above clip, but I thought it was a solid story.

That's all I really have to say. I might put together some more coherent thoughts later.
