SYNOPSIS:  Hazuki may be near-sighted, but he knows true beauty when he sees it and the delicate form of flower shop owner Rokka draws him in like a bee to honey.  So, hoping to cultivate a relationship between them, Hazuki takes a part time job at her shop, only to discover two huge thorns preventing the nurturing of any romance.  The first, the fact that Rokka is still grieving for her late husband Shimao, would be enough to snip most men’s ardor short, but it’s the second that really threatens to make Hazuki’s forlorn hopes wilt.  Because while Shimao is most definitely deceased, he hasn’t yet departed and his spirit is still living in Rokka’s apartment!  Except only Hazuki can see him, which leads to a very strange romantic triangle indeed.  Are Hazuki’s chances with Rokka as dead as the man who still lives in her house?  Or can he somehow make love blossom even though there’s an interloper pushing up the daisies between them?  One way or another, the ground’s going to be rocky and someone or something’s likely to get nipped in the bud in NATSUYUKI RENDEZVOUS!

SYNOPSIS:  There is a train station on the other side of death, yet not all who arrive on the platform will be judged ready for passage onwards.  For one unready soul, there will be both a test and a second chance.  Rather than be reborn, this soul will awake in the body of 14-year-old suicide Makoto Kobayashi where it must not only find a way to fit into Makoto’s existence, but also unravel two mysteries.  What is the secret of the great sin it committed in its own previous life and what were the reasons that led to Makoto’s suicide?  While some may believe the truth to be as plain to see as black and white, “Makoto” soon finds that the real world is overlaid with so many shades of grey and rainbows of colors that even the most obvious of “facts” are not what they seem.  With the soul’s time in Makoto’s body quickly running out, the answers to all life’s mysteries await discovery in the acclaimed animation masterpiece that won the 34th Japanese Academy Prize for Excellence in Animation: Colorful ~ The Motion Picture.
