    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 ...

  • 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 ...

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

  • One of the best tragic - romantic anime of all time.
    This anime touched my heart the whole time. It definitely showed the power of love, and how strong it is. It definitely isn't a realistic story, but it can really teach you something. I kniw there were some times when we all hated the villagers because they hated on Hayami, but that just adds on to the feels. Definitely an anime to watch, and is definitely one of my favorites.

  • In Depth but Short Anime
    I found the anime to start off a little slow and somewhat generic. It wasn't until a few episodes in that the story truly develops. As the series nears the end, a lot of quite advanced events happen. Far more compelling than I thought a 12 episode anime could be. I'm still not entirely sure this was a great anime, but it was definitely well thought out. Clannad is still more depressing than this ...

  • Beautiful Ugly or Pretty Misery
    Very difficult to watch at times. Yet a special take for those that enjoy the bittersweet tragedy genre. The ending hurts this work for me, but H2O has some very good merits. Yes, this is a very vague review.
