    Mizu no Kotoba: Entertaining

    Very Short Very Cool
    I was interested in the theme of the story from the start and felt it accomplished what is was intended to do.

I def recommend Mizu no Kotoba to all and after you watch check out Time of Eve same director. All in All, Well done.

    Even for ...
