By the end of its fourth season, The Love Letter was becoming a phenomenon.
The series’ original Japanese voice cast was joined by English voice actors.
Its anime adaptation was even nominated for a Japan Film Academy Award, though no nomination was ever received.
But despite its popularity and awards, The New Yorker’s editors had some concerns about the anime’s commercial viability.
“I didn’t know how good this was going to be,” one editor told the magazine.
“We were worried that this would be the next big anime show.
And it’s not.”
A few years later, the series’ creators began work on the Love Letter: Love Letter 2.
The Love Letter series was first adapted in 2002 for the video game and film adaptation of Akira Toriyama’s The Boy Who Could See Through Walls, but it was not until 2011 that the anime was adapted for the anime adaptation of The Love Letters (or The Love Locket) by the original Japanese voices.
The series premiered in January 2017.
Its first season aired on Japanese television, and its second season was available for streaming on Hulu in 2017.
The first season of the anime had a large number of jokes and themes, including the themes of friendship and love.
“The series is a lot of fun, and it’s fun to see how it’s all mixed up,” an editor told The New York Times.
“You’ll have to watch the first season to get a handle on that.”
In 2018, The Hollywood Reporter’s editor-in-chief, David A. Graham, said the series was “the most important Japanese anime of all time.”
“The show is very much about the idea of love in a society that has fallen apart,” Graham told THR.
“Love is a very, very important concept in Japanese culture.
If you think about it, it’s what’s driving the whole country.”
The series has also received widespread acclaim in Japan, with critics describing the series as “the pinnacle of [Toriyama] original Japanese animation.”
“I can’t even say enough about this show.
It’s the best anime I’ve ever seen,” a reviewer for Japanese website TV Asahi said in September 2017.
“It’s an anime that makes me want to watch everything else I’m watching.”
