This is one of those shows that stays with you for a while. The story was wonderful and the music was beautiful.

[details=Spoiler]However, the story was a bit on the tragic / inspirational side and I think I must have gone through an entire box of tissues.

It also amused me to see some of the comments on other sites that mentioned “Clannad” - especially the fact that Kaori was the dying daughter of a baker.[/details]
