    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 ...

    A really touching story with lots of development
    When i first randomly chose this anime, i took an episode to adapt to the art-style, and the first episode or two were not great but, i decided to watch more and i was right to do so because the anime got really, really good, the development of the main characters is so touching to learn each of their stories and the characters themselves, there are so many deep plot twists and it almost had this ...

  • Nice story! Really moving
    This is a really nice story about friendship, love, and full of sentiment. Even though there where some things that can really shock you, like boys hitting a girl, or a dumb town blaming a little girl for what her parents did, it was necessary (I guess) for the correct development of the story. A lot of changes during their path in the village make the main characters grow together and develop ...

    an good anime with both sadness and comedy
    It is all round good, it is a bit slow in the start but until it gets to the real interesting you will keep wondering why is kohinata being bullied and why is she accepting it. (spoiler alert) another point is that when he tells kohinata that his mother committed suicide but In the end (Spoiler alert) when you find out the mother did not commit suicide but ran to save a child, even if he ...

  • I liked the series overall!
    It's got a surprising number of twists and gut-punches for a show of this type. It starts off kind of predictable and then as the story progresses, it reveals layer after layer of drama without getting too complex. The ending left me pretty satisfied with the tale.

    Skip this if you don't like one-dimensional characters
    If you're the type of person who doesn't like to stop watching a series once you start it and you're on the fence about watching this, I advise you to not start this. Most of the characters are boring, including the lead male. Only a few of the characters can be considered to be two-dimensional, but even then, their second side is bland. The story is definitely not a positive for this ...

    Simply amazing and Masterpiece
    Wow, this story went from great to a masterpiece. Very few anime are able to capture my attention on the very first episode but this anime dam does it. Following the final episode with an amazing ending, I would give this anime a full score.

    There are not many characters in this anime so it is easy to track who is who and their own unique personalities. I personally think there are a few to ...

  • 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 .......................................................!
