Based on the Manga by Ikeda Ryoko, who also created The Rose of Versailles. This is a coming of age story about Nanako, a young impressionable teenager who searches for her place in her new school. By writing to her "big brother" (her former tutor in high school prep class) she processes her experiences and turmoils. A very bittersweet, sensitive, and soul searching anime. If you're a romantic, it's an absolute MUST :)
This anime takes the classic story of a young fish-out-of-water and adds in generous helpings of romance between highschool girls. When Nanako starts highschool, she can't imagine the story that she will get caught up in. I feel like this anime does a great job of portraying young relationships with troubled individuals. Nanako is a kind girl, and exceedingly normal, but ends up embroiled with some of the most messed-up people at her school. She does her best trying to keep everything together. As the story unfurls and we find out all the connections between the characters, it is not hard to become emotionally invested. There's really SO much going on in this series that it really makes you feel like you're involved in everything. There are a lot of suspenseful/dramatic moments, but be warned that the series can be dark at times and is, overall, not a happy show. Although the animation style is older, I think it still holds up as a classic anime. The audio quality depends on the version that you're watching, but I enjoyed the voice acting.
