Aoi Hana – Anime Review

Review: Just when Fumi-chan is about to enter high school, her family returns to her old hometown where they lived years ago. Despite her tall figure she is unexpectedly shy and gets teary eyes a lot. Luckily she gets help from Akira-chan, her old childhood friend. They now both visit different girls academies but still spend a lot time together. However what will Akira think of her when she finds out Fumi-chan is dating a girl from her new school.

Aoi Hana is your typical Shoujo-ai school anime; a genre much too rare these days. The story focuses more on relationships and love than on comedy. It doesn’t pick up that many clichés, but rather offers a semi-realistic view on the happiness and problems of female homosexual couples in contemporary Japan.
Rating: 8/10
