| Predictable but my girlfriend loved it
Animation was pretty solid, story was pretty good. Predictable but good.

I was calling out predictions from the start and they all came true. Still, knowing what would happen didn't stop this hardened rock of a man from shedding a buttload of tears, and you should've seen my girlfriend

She sounded like she was laughing, I looked over and she was hysterically crying in some parts, so I told her "stop laughing, this is a sad part" which made her laugh cry and then it was fun for me, as I only watched it because of Valentine's Day.

Still, in the end, it wasn't bad and I know she loved it.

If you like shoujo anime and bittersweet feels, this is probably one you'll enjoy.
