RUMBLING HEARTS - SS
Quite Possibly the Best Anime Ever Made (seriously!)

"You know how all the big money movies are the ones that have the spectacular car chases and big space explosions, but the movie that always wins the best picture Oscar is the lesser-known thoughtful and touching drama? That's what Rumbling Hearts (Kimi ga Nozomu Eien - or The Eternity You Desire - to those who know it better by it's Japanese name) is to anime.
This anime starts out as a typical slice-of-life anime: Haruka, a shy girl is prodded by her friend, Mitsuki, and eventually asks out the guy she likes, Takayuki. The two start out rocky before the guy takes a deep breath and truly discovers that he loves the girl. However, that's where similarities with other anime in the romance drama genre end.
Haruka is involved in a car accident and thrown into a coma for 3 years. Takayuki, who blames himself for Haruka's involvement in the wreck (he was late to a date when it occurred), gets thrown into a deep depression, and is only drawn out by Mitsuki who decides to pursue him herself, though she is also tormented by the accident and blames herself (she was a major reason why Takayuki was late).
When Haruka wakes up without realizing 3 years has passed, Takayuki is forced to choose between his past - Haruka who he loved and cared for while she was in a coma - and his present - Mitsuki who was finally able to break his depression.
This volume contains the first 5 of 14 episodes in the series."

Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien:
Meet Haruka, Takayuki, Mitsuki, and Shinji four high school friends who futures seem bright that is until an accident leaves Haruka in a coma. Takayuki, couldn't forgive himself, and to everyone around him it seems he is determined to follow Haruka into a comatose state. Mitsuki dedicates her life to taking care of the tragic young man, and the pair fall into a relationship shadowed in guilt.
Haruka awakens after three years, and everyone is made to promise to pretend no time has passed at all. Torn between his unhappy real-life relationship with Mitsuki and the past high school romance with Haruka, Takayuki feels the tiny silver lining left in his life being mercilessly and methodically stripped away
