Producers: Gonzo, TV Tokyo, ZERO-A
This is a manga adaptation originally written by Kouji Seo.
As a serious note, if you want to watch this anime properly, watch ‘Kimi no Iru Machi: Tasogare Kousaten’ first. The two Ova episodes are set before this anime and give the details of just why this series is happening.
Now, I have not read the manga for this however I have a friend who has. He loves it. He is a a bit of a romance fantastic, he loves them to pieces and Kimi no Iru Machi is something he raves over. Except even he can not understand how they managed to take the manga and ruin it so badly with this anime. They start at about chapter 80 for this anime. That is correct, this anime, which for all intense purposes looks like the start of a series from the name, is actually half way though! Which just leaves confusion. Especially as there is no obvious connection between the end of the Ova and the start of this season.
Worse yet, while the Ova are well done, this one is not. The creators for no particular reason decided to use a later arc instead of giving us the actually story and why the feeling the main boy has for the the girl! So unless you have read the manga, and even then, you are left confused about why this boy is going so far. To be quite honest, he seems like a stalker to me. My friend promptly gave me a long explanation as to why he is doing it, but still. This is one anime I was expecting to like and ended up just not.
So Stone. Read the manga if you really want to know this story. Really what would be much better is if the creators remade it starting from the actually beginning this time like every normal anime!
