A Compilation of Haru Nonaka Smiles From Sing “Yesterday” For Me

Sing “Yesterday” For Me was one of our chart’s top shows during the Spring 2020 season, and arguably one of the drama’s most memorable aspects is the energetic character Haru Nonaka.

While I wish that Haru had received more focus and development, and felt that her ending wasn’t well-earned at all, she was still an enjoyable presence. So, here’s a compilation of all her precious smiles* in the show.

*Only close-up and medium close-up shots, and only the shots where Haru’s face is the only one in focus (her pet crow Kansuke doesn’t count).

Melvyn originally wanted to write about video games, and he did so for a few years, starting from his college days. He still writes about video games sometimes, but now focuses on anime-related news content and the occasional review. Some of his free time is spent self-learning Japanese, both out of interest in the language and because English-translated light novels and manga are expensive. Every anime season, Melvyn looks forward to discovering new standout episodes and OP/ED animation sequences, as well as learning about the storyboard artists and directors behind them.
