    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 Wonderfully Meaningful 12 Episodes
    It's been quite a while since I last watched an anime that struck me so hard on an emotional level. In fact, not since Clannad After Story has an anime taken me for such a roller-coaster ride of happiness and tragedy. The important connection between H2O and Clannad, I think, is that they both make it a point to root their high points and low points in tangible, possible ...

    Dramatic! (Also, this is my first review so please be nice :D )
    I have to confess, when I began watching H20 Footprints in the Sand, I was expecting a very shojo/harem-ish plotline, boy finds main girl and is held up by his twenty something other love interests. Drama ensues. Boy/girl confesses. More drama ensues. Boy and girl find a way to be together and that's that. Happily ever after to you too.

    Boy, was I wrong.

    For starters, while this anime does ...

    Never Turn Down the first Episode
    I was around and active in the anime community when H2O had it's original run in 2008 and I immediately turned away from it because, frankly, the harem scene had been done so many times and throwing a weak, blind, male protagonist into the mix didn't spark me.

    Through the years, when selecting different anime, I always ran across H2O but every time put it on the bottom of my selections because ...

    What I thought about this anime.
    This anime was a little confusing but i understood it. It had plenty of romance and drama. This anime had a good plot as well. You will not regret watching this anime because in my opinion I thought the ending was perfect. The spoiler will explain the ending.

    this needs a season 2.
    at first i thought it's gonna be a typical anime, a lil bit of ecchi stuff, but as it goes deeper, more mature serious plot is taking place, i love the plot personally, i loved the ending as well.... wished this had a season 2 though

    Story of youth: Love and Loss
    This turns out be quite the psychological anime show. I really enjoyed it. It was hard to get into at first but once you get through the first few episodes one begins to get comfortable and settles in.

    If I had compare this show to anything I would think along the lines of M. Night Shyamalan's early films like Sixth Sense (especially in regards to Hirose's condition). It's the kind of show that ...

    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 ...
