  • This slice-of-life anime goes beyond a mere mystery narrative, and the end result is a disarmingly sincere look into the lives of two young friends.

    This anime is a prequel to the 2004 live-action teen film, Hana and Alice, also by director Shunji Iwai. The leading actors from the 2004 film, Anne Suzuki (Hana) and Yu Aoi (Alice), reprise their roles as voice actors in this animated prequel.
