Kotonoha-no-Niwa

Review:

Kotonoha no Niwa is the most beautiful anime movie. The art is breath taking. The story is so moving. While watching the movie I was sure of one thing I didn’t want it to end. I wasn’t sure where the story is going and I didn’t care. This is one of those movies where every detail count without caring about what the ending is or could be. Its a must watch and should be in every anime fan shelf. I mean its that great… and I kinda feel like whatever I say wont do it justice.

Overall Rate: 10/10

  1. This is the best Romantic Anime movie i have ever seen, the dialogue and emotions in it are so original and touching, the final scene where the hero leave the heroine apartment and go down the stairs (not gonna say more so not to spoiler people) that scene almost made me tear from how touching it was.
