Japanese Title: ハル
Genre: Drama, Romance, Sci-Fi, Shoujo
Release date: 8th June 2013
When her beloved Haru (CV: Hosoya Yoshimasa) died due to a plane accident, Kurumi (CV: Hikasa Yoko) began to close her heart and shut herself from the world. Haru comes back to life as a robot in order to help Kurumi to overcome Haru’s death, but that’s more difficult than robot Haru expected. When he comes to her home, she tells him that he is not Haru. What future will lie ahead Haru and Kurumi?
When I saw this PV, my tears were running down my cheek… (ノД`)・゜・。The story sounds very sad, hopefully my heart will be able to handle this…
The artworks and maybe even the story are from Sakisaka Io, who also draw Strobe Edge and Ao Haru Ride. I’ve read Strobe Edge and I felt so bad for the Andou, who was not OTP… He was such a good guy and his heart was shattered into pieces in the end (mine was shattered too), when the heroine chose his rival since middle school instead of him, even though he gave his best to pursue her.
Well, Hal looks like it will make me cry badly… ^^ Oh, did I mention that Hosoyan will voice Haru? I LOVE his voice
(well, who does not) and I think his voice fits Haru perfectly… I’ve never heard of Hikasa Yoko before, but I think her voice is pretty okay so far.
