Tragedy that tries to do too much in a short season.
Animation: Very good as one would expect from Kyoto.
Audio: Also well done, good sync and a good OP and EP.
Summary: Um wow, talk about tragic. If you like happy slice of life drama then skip this one because it is definitely NOT the sunny side of life.
On the other hand if you want a non-stop gripping angst-fest then this one is pretty good. My major issue is that the series is way too short to try to incorporate so much story. There is a historical period drama and then the current setting. While fairly well done, you cannot help but feel you are missing a ton of backstory (and you are, if you happened to play the computer game this is based on.)
If find you like the animation and production quality but want a bit more sunshine...then try the ones that this studio did after namely Kanon (one of my favorites) and Clannad (very very very good.)
Still at a bargain price if you want something a bit different it's certainly worth picking up. Just be sure to have a lot of Kleenex. :p

Have a tissue box on hand.
A bit short but it's still worth every cent I shelled out for it.

Not my Cup of Tea
I didn't enjoy the story very much but hey that's just me. I got it because I herd it was a good tear jerker but I didn't think it was at all. Great animation, I'll give it that.
