Anohana: The flower we saw that day Anime Review

I didn't think I would cry about this anime. I mean, I knew it was sad. EVERYONE who knows about this anime, knows it's sad. 
If you don't know about this anime...
Just saying.
If you don't know much about the storyline...
It's about the white hair'd chick, Menma. She's dead. Yeah, dead. No spoiler there. You figure it out in the first 2 minutes. Only one dude can see her, Jintan. Jintan is the dude on the far left. 
Everyone in the picture use to be friends as a child until Menma passed away. After that, they drifted apart and Jintan became a hermit. >.>
Everyone thinks he's crazy and gets upset about Menma. 
But then they start to wonder if he really is telling the truth.
They decide to figure out what Menma's last wish was so that she can go to heaven. 
That's basically it.
Now you know.

So, I mean, it's sad. I knew that. I just didn't think it was going to make me cry. To be honest, I don't know if my tears were happy or sad tears. A little of both maybe?
There are some love triangles in this and some weird, crazy parts that make you think that some people need some mental help. >.< But it's actually a really good anime.

I'm not gonna say it was my favorite and I'm not going to say that it was retardedly sad because it wasn't. It had enough sadness to make me feel and enough funny parts to make me really love most of the characters.
I feel like there wasn't the same amount of time for each character. So, you couldn't like each one of them the same. 
Of course, the main story is more about Jintan and Menma so I guess it didn't really matter about the others... But at the end you kind of wanted to know more about the others because of how much Menma cared about everyone.
You just don't really know what these kids went through with her passing except for Jintan. 

On a side note... You just wanna hug these parents cause these are probably the most understanding parents I have ever seen. Seriously....

The art was nice. Some parts were pretty, flowing and just nice to watch.
The art in general is pretty normal?

The OP is pretty catchy to listen to. I didn't skip it and I felt like it didn't mess up the anime. Like some songs just ruin the moment? This one didn't. 
ED song I didn't really listen to... It's one of those ... meh... songs. You know?

Bloody Kiss Short Story Review

This manga is basically about a girl who wants to remember her first love. 
Wakaba (The chick) finds out that Yukito (The dude, of course.) is her first love. 

I think it was kind of funny cause all she can really remember is him crying and then all of a sudden...

BAM! Boy crying. I'm just like... Ok, he's a cry baby. Alrighty then.

This was an ok short story. I feel like they could have did it a little better. They rushed it in the wrong parts, if that makes sense? All in all, it was ok. Cute story. It was just wasn't put together that well. 

I have to admit though.... The extra story was super cute. 

I felt like they could have made a very interesting manga with it. 
But since it's not, It still had a cute ending. Some may say it was way to rushed and everything BUT you have to think about it in way that she has been doing this for a while. I really liked it. It was cute.

  I can't say much about it but these are both vampire stories so if you don't care for vampires then you probably won't like them. >.>
The manga-ka does have a thing with rose keys... I guess it's one way to show that she made both? But eh.... 

Anyway, It's really cute so you should check them out! 
P.S. Don't confuse this with Bloody Kiss by Furumiya Kazuko. This is not the same person or same manga. This one was created by Yagami Rina. Hope that helps!
