    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 ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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.

    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 ...

    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 ...

    Good Series, Not Great
    I enjoyed the series to a point but the last couple of episodes really brought me down. The ending really felt forced and, while it tied up loose ends, was (in my opinion, of course) a rough and unnecessary way to wrap up the plot. With a different ending, I probably would have given it 4 stars. I need to go find something happy to watch now.

    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
