When my buddy Josh inboxed me to let me know about a new anime called Celestial Method that was written by Naoki Hisaya, the same writer who wrote Kanon, Sola and One: Kagayaku Kisetsu, my interest was piqued immediately. Why? Well let me put it like this: Sola is a great, well-written anime, while One: Kagayaku Kisetsu e is a wonderful visual novel which functions as prime evidence of the humble beginnings of visual novel company Key (Clannad, Little Busters). Finally, the 2006 version of Kanon is my favourite anime of all-time. I wrote a whole article about it, check that out here. One of the things I always praise Kanon for is its incredible story writing, and I love anime series with strong plots. That is why I gave Celestial Method a chance, despite reading before hand that it was a 'slice of life' anime which tends to mean a group of pixie girls doing pointless stuff, but as I watched the first episode, I soon learnt that this was not the case.
