Discover this anime – Full Moon wo Sagashite
Twelve-year-old Kouyama Mitsuki was devastated when she was diagnosed with a malignant tumor of the throat. She had made a promise to the boy she loves that she would one day become a singer, but her illness made singing impossible. To make matters even worse, two angels of death, Takuto and Meroko, appeared to Mitsuki and informed her that she only had one year left to live. This news provides an even greater motivation for Mitsuki to fulfill her dreams, and with a little bit of divine intervention, she begins her quest to become a professional singer so she can be reunited with Eichi before time runs out.

My opinion: A show mostly aimed at girls, but boys can watch it as well. This series is what I’d call an anime “classic”, must see for your anime culture. The visuals are pretty good, especially if you consider how old the anime is (2002). The story and chara development are quite ok as well. The strong points here are the songs, which are quite good imo. They’ll most likely leave a good impression on you both during and after the series (remember people, the songs & animation are from 2002, not 2011, so put yourself in the context).
Will the little Mitsuki manage to achieve her dream before her time runs out? Well, that is for you to discover :> The plot has things you won’t see coming, trust me :p
The vid below is the first ED, which contains minor spoilers (from 1st EP mostly), just so you know.
