    The potential drama of this anime is astounding. It reminds me of Honey & Clover.

    Really? H&C is among my favorite anime, but with Sakamichi no Apollon I am just… not getting it.

    Don’t get me wrong, the anime shows superior direction and craftsmanship. It’s just that I am feeling no empathy at all for the characters, which makes the drama weak for me.

    The setting makes a big difference – H&C is about the characters becoming adults, shouldering responsibilities and making difficult choices (in particular, between what is essentially love and career for Hagu – in fact all the characters are somehow hunted by their excessive talent or lack of). That is something I can relate with.

    But with Sakamichi no Apollon? I understand the dramatic background and everything, but the characters feel like… kids. It is hard to take kids seriously in a dramatic setting.
