Current Anime, shouted out at no one in particular.

Honey and Clover is fantastic. I'm six episodes away from the ending, and I'm in love with everything about the show - the design, the characters, the music, the direction. It's touching, dramatic, poignant, and funny. And most of all, charming. The series follows six major characters through university. There's no clear protaganist; it's more of a mosaic, viewed up close so that each tile is interesting.

My favorite line from today was, "What is more painful: To cry because you know what you want, or because you can't find it?" Since this is an art collage, the series deals equally with creative struggles and interpersonal relationships. It's gorgeous, and not at all what I usually watch in the mornings.
