    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 ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

  • 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.

  • What a truly well put anime!
    This anime shows how a girl, a boy, and an entire village overcame the past and moved forward. It will piss you off, make you laugh, and cry. This anime is very well put together. Art is amazing, and I love the story. The last two episodes are one hell of an emotional twist. お疲れさまでした!

  • The Blind Shall See Out of Obscurity, And Out of Darkness
    Sometimes touchingly poignant, others vulgar and monstrous, filled with joys that will let your spirit sing with laughter, and even bizarre enough moments to confuse even the most well-versed anime enthusiasts; this series is filled with mystery, intrigue, bittersweet tragedy, romance, love and laughter. All of this awaits those who take interest in the tale of H2O.

    When considering the ...

  • 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.

    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.
