Well executed but frustratingly unfinished

by -

Sweet Blue Flowers does a marvelous job of not just adapting the manga on which it’s based, but improving on it. The original has ongoing issues with being unclear about nonlinear bits, flashbacks, and timing, which the anime cleans up almost entirely. It also does a great job of fleshing out scenes, and knows when to take its time without feeling like it’s dragging things out unnecessarily.

The problem: The series ends around the halfway point of the manga, *right* when things are getting interesting. The original story spends half its length setting up the characters, their backstory, their awkward relationships and bad breakups, before digging in to the central might-be-romance between Fumi and her childhood friend who she wishes was more.

And that moment is where the first season ends.

You could interpret it as open-ended, but really the show ends right when things are about to get good, and it’s frustrating as heck. Great advertisement for the manga, though.

Very good anime, even better Manga

All i have to say is i completely agree with Mako. You must read the Manga to get the whole story.
Whispered Words was the same.Great anime, but it ended like the Sweet Blue Flowers anime did (anime ended when the friends just noticed their feelings for each other).Sadly Whispered Words never got a BD/DVD release.
