After the Rain – Key Visuals
After the Rain/Koi wa Ameagari no You ni – Synopsis
Akira Tachibana is 17-year-old high school student. She is soft-spoken and likes to keep to herself. Due to an injury, she opts out of the track and field club. On a rainy day, she has a fateful encounter with the manager of a family restaurant. Soon she starts to work at that restaurant and finds herself inexplicably love with him.
The manager, Masami, is a divorced, 45-year-old man with a young son. He is kind, apologetic and seen as spinless by his employees. Despite the age gap and his mannerisms, Akira finds herself falling in love with him. Although she is unable to explain her love for him, Akira believes that a concrete reason is not needed to truly love someone. On a rainy day, she finally decides to express her love to the manager. How is he going to respond to her feeling?
What You Can Expect
The anime has aired 6 episodes so far. The art is the single most attraction. If you love it then you would be willing to keep giving this anime a try. The screenplay is superb in my opinion. I love the rain and so the drama is perfect for my taste. Also, I really love the title of the anime. The English version ‘After the rain’ does not do much justice to it.
I think the author tries to compare rain to love. Just as one would be drenched in rain, often unexpectedly, that is what exactly happens when we fall in love. We are drenched in love (rain) and we also find the whole world drenched on it.
The anime tries to reflect the trials and tribulations being faced by a young girl. I have watched the first episode and it has convinced me to keep watching it. In all probability, expect a review by me on this anime.
Also, on an entirely unrelated note, do you love Yuri anime? This news might be exciting to you.
