Naoshi Arakawa’s original manga is now scheduled end in the next issue of Monthly Shonen Magazine, on sale February 6th.

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


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.
