|Akitsuki Yamato started his new high school life in Tokyo staying at his aunt’s place which is a public bath for female. One fateful day he saw a beautiful girl and suddenly fall in love with her.
Later on the day, Yamato learns that Asahina Suzuka, the girl he saw, lives next door to him. Yamato’s days to win Suzuka’s heart is now started.
Talking about unique, this anime is definitely different. If you are expecting typical “harem” anime story of one man getting the attention from all pretty girls around, then this anime is not for you.
“Suzuka” talks about love, deep feeling, friendship and sacrifice in a very natural way. As the story flows, it plays with our emotions; the hot-cold Suzuka, the helpless Honoka, and the confused Yamato continuously hurt each other in a painful way.
The animation quality is not bad. The opening theme song is awesome! I can’t help myself to hear it over and over again repeatedly. Some scenes really captures our emotions. I like especially the fireflies-bellflowers scene.
I don’t usually watch sport-themed anime. However, I must say this is the sweetest sport-romance anime I’ve ever seen! They built every character in a natural way, leaving us with deep impression about every main characters. Touching, sad, yet somehow romantic. Recommended for age 13+
My rating : ★★★★☆
