  • WHY MUST YOU LIE CUTE COVER
    Do not let the title fool you, I loved this anime with a passion. It was beautiful not only in style but the story as well. But is you are looking for that cute high school silly drama and romance, turn back now.

    This was an emotional rollercoaster from episode 1. They do an amazing job with everything in here. But if getting your emotions jerked around doesn't sound like your kind of fun I ...

  • The random button picked this, the reviews made me watch it
    IT'S NOT ABOUT SWIMMING! despite what one would gleen from the title and picture. What it is about is a tale of love, familial obligation and being bound by the past. The characters are interesting and diverse and the story is intriging. It' hard to praise this anime without giving too much away, but the animation is smooth aand fluid, but that's to be expected from an anime not dependent ...

  • Break out the tissues!!
    This anime is going to make you feel so many feelings. You're going to love/hate/question so much after watching this anime, and no it's not about mermaids!! I thought the same thing as so many before me, that this anime would be teeming with mermaids. Despite the fact that it isn't particularly mermaid centric it is still quite enjoyable. There is a little bit of sexual tension, but what anime ...

  • 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.

    nope. nope. nope. nope.
    If you're a fan of unexplained storylines and conclusions, followed by quick-nasty packaging of the story at the end -- LOOK NO FURTHER!

    I PRESENT TO YOU: H20 ~Footprints in the Sand~

    Main blind character becomes miraculously not blind. Why am I telling you this? Because it slapped me in the face too. Not from sheer joy, but because it only took 5 seconds for him to be healed. Like it's ...

    I Found This To Be a Great Story.
    It's about a blind high school boy who comes to a village to live with his uncle. He meets a high school girl he takes a liking to but this girl is hated by everyone in the village over something her family has done in the past. She is the last member of that family to remain in town and unlike her family, has done nothing wrong, and is actually a good person even though she is beaten up and ...
