Synopsis: Can life's answers be found where the road ends? Shinobu has disappeared to America, leaving both Yuta and Hagumi with very mixed feelings. But talk about mixed up! If Takumi's feelings are so tied up with Rika, why is he tied up in knots over his coworker Nomiya's romantic pursuit of Ayumi? Plus, senior projects are getting everyone down, but none more than Yuta, who in a sudden burst of reckless abandon takes off on his bicycle on an epic journey of self-discovery...Ah, the enthusiasm of youth! (Episodes 13-24 – includes Bonus Episode F)

Review: There is a misconception amongst some people that anime is all action or sexual violence.  That is definately not the case.  In Japan anime is a legitmate form of storytelling.  Honey and Clover is a fantastic example of this with its slice of life themes and dramatic performances.

This box set collects episodes 13-24 of the series and we follow the relationships, romances and pitfalls of these fantastic characters, as we would any real-life soap opera.   The pacing of this series takes us through the daily life of the characters, everything from job hunts to ackward moments amongst friends, as one tries to let another down easy in the realm of love.  If you're looking for action or faced paced story, this isn't your cup of tea. 

This show is a perfect way to get your girlfriend or sister into anime.  This may be geared more towards female viewers, but I think that open minded males can enjoy it, as well.
