I don’t know how I missed this anime last year. I feel bad that it took me this long to watch it. The anime is absolutely beautiful. I’ve never enjoyed a drama as I’ve enjoyed this. The way the phenomenal effect their lives was crazy. It brought them closer together and solved their issues. Thus, the characters weakness were their strength in away. I love how the base of the anime kept changing. You would never have expected it nor seen it coming. Also, it was never boring. The only downside of the anime was that its too focused on Taichi. I know he’s the main character, but I would’ve loved to see more of the other characters struggles.

Overall Rate: 9/10
