This series may have been a fairytale romance in more of the literal sense than metaphorical, but there’s no doubt that the ending was a storybook one through and through.
Show of hands – how many of you saw all these twists coming?
Your happiness and the happiness of the one you love – when the two are at odds, how do you decide which is more important?
Who is the main character? How will this story end? Even after seven episodes, the fact that we’re no closer to answering these key questions than when we started is what sets Natsuyuki Rendezvous apart from other shows and one of the reasons why there is a special place in my heart reserved for it.
In life and love, there is sometimes no better advice than to seize the day – a timeless message that this series is painting in a most vivid and memorable way.
This series gives new meaning to the phrase “a storybook romance”.
Even the most confident of people can easily fall prey to an inconspicuous but vile and insidious enemy that often bedevils blossoming relationships: overthinking.
In the eyes of the one you love, would you be content with being second place for your whole life if it meant you could be together?
This episode played with my emotions much like love does, swinging me back and forth between highs and lows.
Taking the time slot of Tsuritama is a series which takes noitaminA back to the genre that brought it acclaim in the first place: a josei romance. Of course, Natsuyuki Rendezvous isn’t your average romance in the vein of Honey and Clover or Nodame Cantabile by any means – not when there’s a ghost involved.
