This anime is based off of an anime with 13 volumes and has a live action movie associated to it starring Higashide Masahiro. This is an excellent story that I fell in love with as the manga and I am glad that none of the renditions has destroyed this excellent story.
We follow the rocky relationship between Yoshioka Futaba and Tanaka Kou. Futaba has been in love with Kou since middle school. However, after Kou’s move in the middle of summer vacation causes a misunderstanding she believes that she no longer loves him. In high school Kou reappears under the name Mabuchi Kou and he’s changed.
This is an excellent anime to watch even if you don’t know the story. It’s a very cute and heartwarming anime that even though it deal with some very sad topics you can easily relate to the characters, even if you haven’t had anyone die in your life. I really resonated with Kou throughout the anime. I would say to watch the movie first to get the feel of the anime and then move on from there.
