    Less Love Polygon, More Love Daisy Chain
    "This anime is worth experiencing for the stunning visuals" is a statement of praise that also usually means corners were cut in other important areas (plot, characters, etc.). Thankfully, the visuals here are backed up by an interesting story.

    In a world where humanity lived under the sea before adapting to live on land, four students still living underwater must now adapt to their new school ...

    Beautiful animation and art but extreme melodrama
    This is a romantic drama that has many multiple love triangles. The romance in this anime starts out great but then fluctuates like rollercoaster, in other words the melodrama gets outta hand. But even though I don't like melodrama the beautiful art and animation makes up for it. This anime is close to the beautiful animation of "The Garden of Words" movie (which I highly recommend). While ...

    Stunning Animation Packed With Love
    Let's face it, the animation and art style were the two things that really drew me into this show. They were able to combine elements from lots of different movies and make it into something unique. The story starts off with 4 middle school students who live in the sea. They are forced to attend school on the surface after their school closes. What follows is an immense adjusting to the life in ...

    It's like being in a whole new world.
    The two separate worlds creates so much tension and different perspectives in a tremendously overwhelming way. The story that follows it makes the smaller, yet unique problems of the love chain more desirable to listen out and pour your feelings for. If it doesn't hit close to home, what else could?

    Confusion between all of the characters makes so much drama and it lets the story ride from the ...

    Interesting Idea, Frustrating Characters
    I'm about halfway through right now, and it's getting more and more interesting. The plot is very well done, and the concept seems very original. The artwork is also beautiful.

    The only real drawback for me is the characters - they are so frustrating! I don't really like any of the main cast except maybe Tsumugu Kihara (the kid from the surface), and none of the side characters stand out to me ...

    My favourite anime of all time!
    It's so beautiful, the love stories in this anime are intense but it's so intense that you're having a hard time deciding who is more perfect than the other. The scenery and backgrounds are so well done I can't stop myself from re-watching this anime!

    Love Polygon Has No Brakes
    This anime has extremely beautiful animation with people spending their entire lives under the sea. The story follows a group of kids (from the sea) who recently joined a school on the surface. The plot is that every person seems to like someone else, creating the biggest love polygon I've ever seen.

    The story seems to be slightly repetitive at times, but it's definitely worth the watch!

  • Love at first watch~
    This is one of those animes that captivated me back when there were only stills and clips of this gorgeous world. Then it intrigued me with reviews and reactions. Then took me away upon my marathon which led to an appreciation i shared with so many people rewatching this. Its just beautiful on the inside and with every frame on the outside. I should have expected as much with my love for I.G's ...

  • Beautiful and Entertaining
    It takes a little while for this to get going. There are a lot of characters to build out, but it's well worth it, and you can just enjoy the great visuals while that's going on. The love story portion gets a bit bogged down in the middle, but bounces back.

  • Best show ever!!! Worth the subscription&time
    I loved this series so much, I finished it in 3 days. Super happy that it was dubbed and not subbed. Each episode was so entertaining. Definitely worth the time to watch. I loved how it was so easy to understand each of the characters and feel for them. I just finished the series and now I'm about to re-watch it for a second time!
    P.s. I'm rooting for manakari (manaka + hikari)
