    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 ...

    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

    Well thats just dandy
    the bad -
    From a story line perspective the anime leaps around a lot, its a bit hard to follow and at times seems completely random...

    character emotional development lacked heavily in the middle of the series
    starting out almost golden with the proper amount of mystery comedy and suspense
    however it turns into a smut that would take a sadist to enjoy

    the character logic.. my nephew is 7 ...

  • Amazing and Touching Story!
    This was better than I expected it to be. It was a very heart grabbing story and kept me interstead with each episode. I thought this anime might be suspect at first but as I stated earlier it grew on me.

    Worth Watching but not Stellar
    Just finished it and this is worth watching. I think the other reviewers overplayed this one. The characters here are pretty cookie cutter. You have the sundere girls, the crossdressing shota, and the cute blonde girls. The personality changes are way to quick and the characters lack depth. However the back story is interesting and the way it is told is good. The ending, however, was a TOTAL cop ...

    Short but bittersweet
    This is also the first anime that made me cry. It was very heartwarming and tragic at the same time. I enjoyed watching this, I wish there was another series, seeing how the ending turned out. All in all I enjoyed this because everyone decided to open themselves up to one another. I think anime's like this teach you some valuable things, I enjoy those anime's the most.

  • H2O: Footprints in the Sand Review By:Verases
    An You sit down to watch this anime let me tell you you don't know exactly what your in for. You slowly ease into the anime and by the seventh episode you think that this is just another romance anime that involves well written characters and a lot of Japanese culture. Then they throw the eighth episode at you and your like WTF did i just watch, but yet it had a lot of meaning about it. Then from ...

  • A Very Touching Series
    I really enjoyed this anime overall. When I first started watching, I was a little bothered by the art style. I'm very picky about those sorts of things, so it was almost enough to prevent me from watching past the first episode. However, the story eventually picked up, and I got hooked on the characters and their depth.

    The score for this anime is wonderful as well -- it's quite possibly the ...

    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.
