  • What a Hidden Gem...
    This show is one of those shows that you end up comparing future shows too. I only wish this show had the financial backing it deserved. It could have been a masterpiece. Well, with a tiny amount of money it almost is a masterpiece. Visuals are stimulating. Story grasps your interest since the first 5 seconds of the series. The plot sets standards for the genre. Everyone who calls themselves and ...

    For the young and the not so young!!!!
    I read a lot of the reviews about the anime before I watched it. A lot of them mentioned the melodrama, so I was bit concerned, but it really wasn't that bad. It could be because I'm in the "not so young" category, but I really enjoyed it and I felt it was actually well placed. I felt that the anime had a lot of real emotions and situations, so the "melodrama" actually fit really well!
    On top ...

  • Unexpectedly good, (I went in blind)
    This show has to be one of the most unique shows I have ever seen, and I wish more show would surprise me the way this one did. It was just so good all round: art, animation, characters, story, overall aesthetic, all of it just screamed amazing-ness.

  • absolutely heart wrenching
    This series had me fully captivated from start to finish with the great creative twist to express the love and struggles people face that truly shape us into who we are. The way this series expresses feeling with the metaphors told by the story's protagonists have such great depth and meaning that can be understood by all.

  • Adorable, Heartwarming, and Emotional
    This anime is beyond one of the cutest yet heart breaking animes I've ever seen. I am not overly fond of childish looking art styles but this one got me right in the heart. You first think it's going to be a cute adorable anime but as time goes you realize just how deep it is. It's as deep as the ocean and will make you cry an ocean if you're not manly. You get to know each character and you find ...

  • Love and life on the sea and on land
    This anime ... The story kept going places I didn't want it to. The characters kept doing things I didn't want them to, and it was brilliant. I have never seen such a beautiful anime which I struggled against so stubbornly. Everything was amazing, and the love ... is like the sea.

  • Dropped it after a few episodes, art was beautiful, but holy crap was it boring.
    I know that most people only rate any anime they bother to review a either a 5 or don't bother rating it all, meaning that animes with a 5 star average are good, 4 is average, and 3 is bad (because user reviews tend to be all binary and inflated towards the "5" star end) but I wanted to chip in with my ambivalent review which will most likely be promptly downvoted into oblivion by fanboys and ...
