  • This anime has more meaning than I can write down!!!!
    It is rare, unfortunately, to come across an anime that can pack so much heart wrenching feeling in just 12 episodes, but H20 does just that.

    I watched this anime a few years ago, but by just looking at the cover image, I can remember everything that I felt in those moments!

  • One of the best animes.
    It's romantic and each episode was more tear-jerking than the next, not what everyone thinks it is, but of course, you have to watch it to understand. I loved it and the many sub-plots were intriguing. The characters are so diverse and each girl has their own sub-plot.

    Powerful story, not for kids
    Despite the young teen characters and school setting, this is not a typically light harem anime. This is a 'grown-up' series, so be careful as to whom you let watch it and be careful of your own expectations. There's a glimpse of violence right from the first minute, and although the first couple of episodes include a few ecchi scenes, the plot returns to dark intrigues; this includes more than ...

  • Good enough to cry over
    This anime was simply amazing, at first I thought each episode had its own story on how he was helping each of the girls but it wasn't which surprised me greatly! I thought it was just going to be like Fruit of Grisaia but once again it acceded my expectations, the artwork wasn't great but the story made up for it. If i had to choose an anime worthy of an award, this will come out as my answer, ...

  • H2O was pretty goood
    This anime was pretty good. Expect i really hated the part were the boys beating up Hayami every single time and she didn't do nothing wrong. They shouldn't blame her because she didn't know nothing was happening when she was little, I also hated the part where Hayami died from a train it brought me to tears. The anime it self was good and i like the ending where she came back.

    Pathetic stereotypical characters that are one dimensional and change to suit a story line that mashes every theme possible .
    Crunchyroll must have gotten paid to stream this nonsensical trash. How this has any positive reviews is beyond me. The story line is all over the place, it tries so hard to cover so many themes which just goes to show you how poor of a story it truly is. It's based on the main characters "reality" while actual events are happening that are so far removed from reality that it makes it seem ...

    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 ...

    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 ...
