Manga review is HERE

The Anime has an unfinished ending leaving viewers curious. But the Anime is really enjoyable to watch. Its starts of with a comedy tone and then gets you really emotional and deep into love & characters. Trust me you dont wanna miss this one and the music in the Anime is quite amazing too.

"In love, time is everything."

"I feel like I've lived just to meet you."

"When you feel lonely, it means there is someone you miss."

The story revolves around Takahashi Nanami and Motoharu Yano, two high schoolers who unexpectedly fall in love. As the series moves on, we get to see the ups and downs of their relationship that eventually climaxes when both of them must truly mature or move on - the choice being particularly difficult for Takahashi. Throughout the story, the viewer is introduced to various problems every couple faces from past influences to jealousy -in the end it's quite a simple plot outline with very gripping dialog (for a drama, that is).

Animation is taken care of very well - there's a water color-esque feel akin to Honey & Clove mixed with standard inked anime. The animation won't wow you but it's still nice to for the eyes. 

Insert songs create a perfect scene where emotion must strike a chord. Music can make or break a scene and although the songs are prevalent during climaxes, they always seem to get the job done.

There's about 4-5 main characters that truly effect the plot - a couple of them are boring and static however the three main ones are the ones you'll come to love or hate. BgI is the type of anime that makes you feel for the character and sympathize with them; although you may not be in Takahahi's shoes, she'll often narrate her thoughts and feelings to you. 

Overall, I'd suggest this for romance/drama lovers - I truly enjoyed every second of this anime and I continued the manga . The plot, while simple provides a lot of entertainment for the viewer - whether you cry or laugh, Bokura ga Ita delivers what it's good at.
