  • I must have seen a different "H20"
    Wow. So many stellar reviews. Here's an average " girl-du-jour" harem and witless Twit show. Complicated with senseless violence, an attempt to endear the male to the audience by making him blind (due to mental trauma), evil villagers castigating, psychologically torturing, physically abusing the surviving child of the family the villagers killed. Someone in the production committee must have ...

  • Emotionally powerful, but flawed.
    This is an emotionally stirring bit of magical realism in a small-town rural setting that comes alive in ways that are fun and charming, but also heart-wrenching, and at times rage-inducing. The show balances humor and happiness with the realities of grief and mental trauma, class conflict, feuding families, and the downside of living in a community where your business is everyone else's, and ...

  • "Ouch...It hurts so good"
    This one is an emotional roller coaster with enough character development to drag you along for the ride and the story line is what keeps your emotions going up and down, making you slightly nauseous.

    I literally could not stop watching because of the levels of drama.

    This one is going to hurt you, deeply, but it is still such a great anime.

  • Amazing show, worth the tears.
    This show is the second show I have ever watched which has brought me to tears. This show was the first show to make me cry and laugh, hate it and love it, and smile and frown all at the same time. I would recomend this show to anyone who loves fantasy romance anime which will make you both smile and cry.

  • This is real anime at it's finest!
    This wonderfully plotted and well put together story lined anime is one of the best in the business. This anime not only connects with the audience emotionally, but also makes you think about how you would react to others wrong doings and how you can come to surpass those barriers. If you seem to be strolling along and come across this, highly recommend you take this journey and witness anime at ...

  • an emotional gut punch
    aside from ep 8 (wtf was going on there?) this was a great little series. very much an emotional rollercoaster tho, and not in a high in the air doing loops kinda way. plenty of anger and heartbreak in there as well. i think my only gripe would be the way they finished it off.. instead of closure you get a wait, what?

  • 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, ...
