User Reviews

Honey and Clover is a "slice of life" anime adaptation of the jousei manga created by Umino Chika of the same name.
27 March 2006 | by sunspitfireSee all my reviews

The series takes a glimpse into the lives of five students of an art university and allows you to view how these students slowly mature in their thoughts, feelings and relationships. Honey and Clover is a very heartwarming, touching, funny and poignant as it deals with the many issues college aged youth know best. It is not your ordinary slapstick, magic, robot war, cutesy or fan service anime. If you want that, look elsewhere. Honey and Clover has heart, a bit of comedy, beautiful animation quality, style, excellent voice actors, and a wonderful accompanying soundtrack. This series is certainly not for everyone. In fact, this is geared towards the college aged youth, but if you are looking for something deeper and heart felt, I highly recommend this series as well as its soundtrack and original manga.
