Honey and Clover

Anime Review: Honey and Clover (Hatchimitsu to Clover)

Honey & Clover is an anime based on a manga by Chika Umino. The story revolves around the daily lives of a group of eccentric art school students in Tokyo. This is however, not your average highschool romance anime.

The storyline spans several years, and follows the ups and downs of the gang's college and working lives, balancing just the right amount of comedy and reality. College students and young working adults will easily relate to the characters and situations in this series.

Being an anime about art school students, the animation, artwork and music are top-notch. A lot of attention is paid to the details - the artwork, the timing of the cuts and the soundtrack are all excellent.

Highly recommended.
