Summer 2011 Season Recommendation Part 1

The name of the show is

Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai

Or "We Still Don't Know the Name of the Flower we Saw that Day"

Or "Ano Hana" for short.

Ano Hana is about a high school student, Jintan, who recently became a NEET, and started staying home from school. One day, rather casually, his friend Menma appeared to him as a ghost, a rather cute ghost.

Menma told Jintan that he has to grant her wish so she can move on. Menma appeared older than she was when she died. Jintan thinks that she is his stress manifesting as a hallucination but still thinks she's real.

They begin their friendship again.

Menma and Jintan were part of a childhood crew of friends called the "Super Peace Busters."

Menma is sad that only Jintan can see her but Jintan can see her for a reason. What the reason is... you'll have to watch Ano Hana. If you like anime about romance, friendship, supernatural things but mostly shounen romance then watch this anime.

Welcome to
The Otaku Reviewers

This blog, "The Otaku Reviewers", was started in February of 2010 on this very same platform, Blogger. At first, it was a venture into the informational and informal world of comics, anime, video games, and Japanese culture. In other words, just a random blog.

Over time, the founder of the blog credited with the pseudonym "RPGhero" was joined by two fellow bloggers and friends with the names "Chansu" and "Deretsun". Together the three bloggers looked up interesting Japanese culture facts, recommended new anime, talked about their own "otaku" interests, and traveled across the United States to various anime conventions.

There have been off periods when the blog ceased production of content and there have been times when there would be dozens of blog posts per week. The schedule varies depending on the lives of the people behind the alias'. However the pattern is that we always get back into the game with even newer information about Japanese culture, anime, video games, and other nerdy hobbies.

The motto of our blog is:
"A cure for your apathy and an inspiration for your dreams. ...Applies to Otaku, anime fans, J-pop junkies, and the like"

The purpose is to blog about cool stuff related solely to anime and otaku stuff. There's no other reason we're doing this.

If you like our blog, please support us in however small a way that you would like. We appreciate our readers!
