Hachimitsu to Clover (Honey and Clover)
Hachimitsu to Clover (Honey and Clover)

1. Hachimitsu to Clover (Honey and Clover)

Episodes: 36 (total)
Seasons: 2

Honey and Clover is a heartwarming slice of life series. The pace in this anime is slow and relaxing. The animation is poetry in motion; you will not find the bold, hardline animation style here. Unlike many other anime, this series uses a faded watercolor palette and soft sketched character designs. The style perfectly reflects the true nature of the characters.

This rom-com follows the life of five college students who live together. Though living in poverty, they find joy in the small things in life, including their romances. The characters carry this show phenomenally. Anyone will find a particular character they can relate to as they experience the struggles everyone goes through. Despite the slower pacing, the story will keep you on the edge of your seat. There are enough twists to keep you interested throughout all the episodes! Humor balances the mood of the series; some characters will make you cry while others will make you laugh.
