    Never forget the beauty of life
    I fell in love with this anime series practically the moment I started watching it. The opening scenes of the first few episodes uses one of my absolute favorite poems, "Footprints in the Sand". From watching the first episode, I was blown away by how amazing it seemed. The poem tied in beautifully with the storyline, the opening and endings (Katayoku no Icarus by Yui Sakikabara and Kazahane by ...

    Ending completely ruined my experience
    The last 2 episodes went from bad to terrible. Specially when they killed off one of the main characters.
    There for a WARNING: This series is seriously bad for those that do not want a terrible ending. You will have a shock that shouldnt even be there.

  • Bittersweet series (sad but worth watching)
    Overall a good anime. Rated 4 stars instead of 5 due to the way the first half of the series was structured compared to the last half. This show will make you want to punch out an old man, a couple of kids (and their parents), laugh, and cry.

    Spoilers may be included below:

    The first half of the series really felt out of context, even though it's a slice of life genre. We went straight from ...

    H2O: Footprints in the Sand
    H2O: Footprints in the Sand is a very good show. however I was left with lots of question at the end of the last episode. I am not sure if it was a happy or sad ending. you must see, you will cry if you have a heart .......................................................!

  • One of the best tragic - romantic anime of all time.
    This anime touched my heart the whole time. It definitely showed the power of love, and how strong it is. It definitely isn't a realistic story, but it can really teach you something. I kniw there were some times when we all hated the villagers because they hated on Hayami, but that just adds on to the feels. Definitely an anime to watch, and is definitely one of my favorites.

  • In Depth but Short Anime
    I found the anime to start off a little slow and somewhat generic. It wasn't until a few episodes in that the story truly develops. As the series nears the end, a lot of quite advanced events happen. Far more compelling than I thought a 12 episode anime could be. I'm still not entirely sure this was a great anime, but it was definitely well thought out. Clannad is still more depressing than this ...

    Nice name...shame about the show
    Currently, there are only 5 anime which are adapted from visual novels which I enjoy very much- the 3 Key-Kyoto Animation partnership anime (Air, Kanon 2006 and Clannad), Higurashi and Steins;Gate. Coming into this particular one, I knew it could never match up to those 5. I knew the journey through this would be as annoying as hell given just the synopsis. But I kept a clear head and entered. ...

    First thing to make me cry
    Lets keep this short.

    THIS IS A MUST WATCH.
    i can proudly say that this anime claims the title of being the first to make me tear up. the ending was amazing. and each episode is a different story on its own (as stated by the title). Being that, the episode still manage to be connected by giving some sort of insight to the main backstory of the series. the story is beautifully put together and ...

    a cow says moooooooooo, why the fuck do i need a long title
    Imagine hating every character but a spirit and the abandoned girl. This show will make you want to jump into your screen, get into the anime, punch everyone but those 2 and get back.

    I am easy pleased, I like nearly all animes, but I won't recommend this one. Unless you want to feel bad and hate. It doesn't even have a that good story line. This is like the bad version of kotoura-san, I ...
