Natsuyuki Rendezvous: Love Story of the Grown Ups

Currently finished: Episode 4

While my interest level for my other top 5 seeds has been on a steady drop, Natsuyuki Rendezvous is about the only one that is on a rapid climb. In a way, this feels very much like the grown up version of Ano Hana: it has the very similar slow paced plot with quick mood swings, though the ghost in this story is playing a rather drastically different role. Also, since it's the love story between adults, it doesn't have the typical immature teenager's problem we've become so familiar with in high school love dramas.

While it's still a bit too early to judge what will eventually become of this, but if I'm to re-do my season's top 5 seeds now, this would most likely occupy the No.1 spot instead of the No.5 spot I gave it earlier. Being a bitter sweet story about love and the deceased most definitely have helped since I am a huge fan of sad stories, especially love tragedies.

p.s. Oddly enough, I find short-haired Rokka rather attractive, more so than she was when she had longer hair. Anybody else feel the same?
