5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely story! 23 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase
I didn't realise when I ordered this series, that is written by Yōsuke Kuroda, the guy behind the excellent 'Please Teacher!' and 'Please Twins!' animes of a few years back, but within a very short time, I knew it was by him; there are too many similarities for it to be a coincidence. That is not a criticism, but his style is so recognisable, and even some of the characters are dead ringers for those in the 'Please!' stories; if you watched and enjoyed those stories, you will love 'Waiting...' Even some of the locations in the story (in and around Karuizawa) are recognisable from 'Please!' as well.

This story follows a group of high-school friends who decide to make a movie over their summer break. Kaito Kirishima discovers his late grandfathers 8mm movie camera, and decides to use it to film the movie. He is out one night testing the camera with some new high-ISO film, when he is fatally injured by something that falls out of the sky. But, he awakens to find everything is OK, so he assumes he must have dreamt it all. However, unknown to him, he was accidentally killed, and then resurrected, by an alien girl called Ichika Takatsuki, whose damaged spacecraft crashed to earth, and she then used her alien nanotechnology to restore him to full health. Said alien girl, the pretty, bespectacled and red-headed Ichika, then joins Kaito's school as a transfer student, basically to keep an eye on him and make sure he is OK. He doesn't remember her, and through a sequence of events, she ends up staying with him in his home, as she has nowhere else to go, and Kaito's big sister Nanami, with whom he shares the house, following their parent's deaths years before, has to go away on business for some time, so she entrusts Kaito to Ichika's care while she is away.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable 2 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase
I've never done a review before!! I found this by accident while looking for new series to watch and it sounded quite interesting. I've noticed quite a lot that the nice kids perants are userly dead so they always have a spare room for strange girls, demonds, angles, aliens etc and always seem to get caught by their best friend in very interesting situation that makes them jump to conculion that they are doing something very wrong which makes me laugh so hard at times. I don't what to say what happens in this, as I might spoil it for others that have not seen this. But it's defently worth having in your collection and you will most likely watch this more than once like I did. 😄

5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Enjoyable Series 21 Feb 2014
Hey, I watched 'Waiting in the Summer' recently and really enjoyed it. It's a Fantasy / Slice-of-Life story about a group of school friends on Summer break who decide to make a movie.. and the alien girl who literally crashes into their lives and makes everything different for all of them. The artwork is excellent and it's a fun story with good characters, certainly worth owning as you'll want to watch it more than once. If you like easy-going slice-of-life anime I'd say you'll enjoy this.. Recommended. 5 stars

This anime has a great story line and follows it well, its well drawn. It is one of those that you will want to watch over and over again. The artists among us will find plenty of interesting characters to try and draw.
