Kimi ga Nozomu Eien

Posted on: June 25, 2008

Kimi ga Nozomu Eien, loosely translated as The Eternity You Wish For or also known as Rumbling Hearts is based on a dating-sim game. good reason why all these japanese dating-sim games are ported over to anime form, notably due to it’s strength in delivering a rather solid story both touching and memorable.


the best of times, hanging out and having fun

Kimi ga Nozomu Eien is 14 episodes long. the first 2 episodes starts off like any typical love story. shy girl has crush over guy. shy girl with the help of best friend confesses to guy. guy feels obligated to accept shy girl. guy slowly develop real feelings for shy girl. best friend also has feelings for guy. best friend ask guy to accompany her on her birthday. shy girl gets into tragic accident on that day.

full stop.

and then the story moves forward 3 years later…shy girl is in a coma. guy experience a guilt trip. best friend takes care of guy. best friend betrays girl and confesses to guy. guy accepts best friend. and then of course, shy girl wakes up but suffers from memory disorders.

that’s the guise of the story. the emotional pain we see through the character interactions is heart-breaking. at times i’m at a lost as well as to what i would have done if i was in the guy’s shoes. don’t expect a happy ending from this anime, it’s not a bad ending but it’s just like life. you live with consequences for your actions.


best friends, Mitsuki and Haruka

this show is really about post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). it’s causes and effect. how one person’s tragedy can affect countless others around them. it can be scarily true and mind-numbing to watch.

from happy friendships to a sudden accident, everything seems to spiral downhill after that. everyone wants to go back to those happy times but none can move forward entirely. things seem to be very bleak, at least till the final episode.

which brings me to a question the show brought up to my attention – if your in a relationship but your partner cheats on you, even if it’s partly your fault and you know it, could you accept them back? before you decide, watch this show and then answer to yourself honestly.

if you enjoy your anime with lots of drama, peppered with romance and spiced with tragedy (you know you do!) then this show will surely tickle your fancy. rated for mature audience thought.

this one was kind of tough…. but i suppose it ended the right way, he ends up with the girl he has been dating for over a year (i don’t remember if it was 2). tho ova’s are still coming, aren’t they? according to info posted on wikipedia the ovas are pointing to him ending with hakura instead of mitsuki. but theirs not much info on when or every how long they are releasing them..

anyway. this is something worth recommending.. it was nice and entertaining. :)

yup, Kimi ga Nozomu Eien OVA ~Next Season~ only 3 episodes with 2 released so far.

just checked Wikipedia and it appears that the new episode will be released today :) hope they have it subbed by the end of the weak :(

anyway. good timing :P im going to go watch the second ova for the third time.. i keep forgetting what was it about…

your blog has the air of elegance in it. the whole layout. =) how long did it take you to change your blog look? i took at least 5 whole hours to get the whole thing done. haaha! blogging takes up a lot of effort, no? =P

haha, it’s all about picking the right, ready-made available theme. a click of a button if you believe it. :P the most i had to do was come up with a nice header that would fit the size of the new theme. viva WordPress!
