    Beautiful animation and art but extreme melodrama
    This is a romantic drama that has many multiple love triangles. The romance in this anime starts out great but then fluctuates like rollercoaster, in other words the melodrama gets outta hand. But even though I don't like melodrama the beautiful art and animation makes up for it. This anime is close to the beautiful animation of "The Garden of Words" movie (which I highly recommend). While ...

    Less Love Polygon, More Love Daisy Chain
    "This anime is worth experiencing for the stunning visuals" is a statement of praise that also usually means corners were cut in other important areas (plot, characters, etc.). Thankfully, the visuals here are backed up by an interesting story.

    In a world where humanity lived under the sea before adapting to live on land, four students still living underwater must now adapt to their new school ...

    My favourite anime of all time!
    It's so beautiful, the love stories in this anime are intense but it's so intense that you're having a hard time deciding who is more perfect than the other. The scenery and backgrounds are so well done I can't stop myself from re-watching this anime!

    Another Story of a Group of Kids Who Grow Fast
    Under the beautiful arts is mainly the kids' stories. These kids behave like adults even before the
    , and how they can behave so right in the beginning of the season can't be seen or induced though the season has ended. The anime does a good job with insight into human minds and how sudden change affects them, but the initial case on which all induced cases are based is ...

  • Emersive, great watch for someone looking for a romance with ups and downs :)
    1st of all I just want to say the atmosphere of this anime is one of the best of all the 1000+ anime I have watched; great music, stunning visuals, and a fairly normal but perfect setting for this show. If you have seen Glasslip, and enjoyed that or were even slightly entertained by it, I would say this is the much better version of it.

    A Lull in the Sea start off kind of slow (like most ...

  • Emotional depth and romance done well
    I can honestly say this is now one of my favorites, the way the show handles romance is believable and adult with how it treats its characters. No one feels like just a stereotype and they all are lovable and interesting. The animation is gorgeous and the music is calming like the sea itself. I listened to the dub and found the performances to be really great and not too overstated or stiff ...

    The most beautiful anime I've ever seen
    This show is so beautiful, not only that I was hooked from the very first episode. The story was more dramatic and had more twists than I was expecting which was a pleasant surprise! The artwork and story are top class, this is easily in my top 3 anime!

  • A Beautiful Story About Falling in Love
    Love Triangles are my guilty pleasure in anime and this anime serves it up with heaping helping of beautiful visuals and deep characters.

    The characters are deeper than paper thin cliches with complex feelings for each other. Yes, this can be described as a love polygon. She loves him, but he loves another, all the while another guy is in love with her and so on and so on, but it's nothing ...

    Could have been a bit less melodramatic...
    Great visuals decent story but not entirely what I thought this anime would be it should have focused more on the sea people and land people interaction and not so much on the romantic angle which was alright but a bit too much at times you know the old I love him and he loves her but of course it's not the person their thinking of most of time. The sea people are about to go into hibernation and ...
