Great Buy

by -

Personally never saw the anime till I bought it and I did enjoy it which gave me a honey and clover vibe (mainly cause of the animation) its a nice anime I recommend to people who are into slice of life drama.

the boxset is what you expect from AOA but imo its about the main content that is important.

Amazing release for a masterpiece of a show.

by -

This show is a visual and narrative masterpiece. Each character here is so uniquely beautiful and relatable. If you haven't watched March Come in Like a Lion yet then you owe it to yourself to do so.

Similarly this Blu-ray release does full justice to the show. It is sleek and vibrant. The dub is amazingly well done and fitting. As always, everything Aniplex makes is top tier quality.

Top Quality Item

to have in the Anime Collection. It is a bit pricey, I'm used to that by now from Aniplex. If you're into emotional and thought-provoking anime look no further than March Comes in Like a Lion.

watch this, seriously, do it!

right up there with your lie in april. a memorable soundtrack pairs excellently with the story as it unfolds over a number or releases. each one getting better and better as you find yourself lost in the story, characters, and plot. if you want to feel the feels, watch this.

A stellar combination of writing, animation, and delivery

by -

3月のライオン is one of my favorite series. The writing by Umino Chika (Honey and Clover) combines wonderful elements of comedy & drama that give the series a unique depth. You will be tense one moment, then laughing hysterically at the end card, while growing attached to the characters. The animation is stellar, as I'd expect from SHAFT. There's a watercolor feel to it, but the stylistic elements are both vibrant & masterfully done (think Monogatari, but more painterly). Aniplex delivers a beautiful box set for each segment, with a nice booklet paired w/the disc. They have nailed this down to a science,and I appreciate that AoA attempts to match Japanese releases, which I rarely see others do. While the cost is high, I see value in having a nice collectable set and am ok with it. Do yourself a favor - give 3月 a shot. While I can't expect one to make a purchase without watching, I can say that you'll get hooked. If you love it enough, show Umino-sensei & SHAFT what a wonderful job they did.
