Review (No Spoilers)

Without a doubt, I can confidentially say that Nagi no Asukara, is one of my favourite anime. I came into it with a spark of interest, but I had no idea what I was expecting. But from the first episode, the art captured my full attention.

The show revolves a group of children who live in the sea. They look and sound like humans, but they have the ability to breathe underwater. However, their school got closed down in the sea, so they have to start attending the school above the water, where they manage to make new friends, especially a boy who is fascinated by the water.

As the story continues, conflict arises, and they are determined to reunite the people of the land and the people of the sea to work together to solve these problems.

The show covered all aspects of love, life, and sorrow, and depicted it in a beautiful way. I enjoyed every moment of the show and wouldn’t hesitate to watch it again.

Plot 4/5 – The plot was very easy to follow. It is a fantasy universe however, so you needed to be able to pay attention to the details they told you. But there was never a point in the anime where they dumped all the information on you. Though there are some aspects of slice of life in the show, it is more fantasy-based.

Art 5/5 – the art was breathtaking to watch, and I loved how they drew the different environments on land and in the sea.





One thought on “Anime Review: Nagi no Asukara

    It is a fun series. I’ve always loved water/ocean visuals. And the character backstories and relationships were very strong. I even ended up adding some of the nusic to my library. I think my only criticism would be how they tried to increase tension near the end. It felt a little out of character for the series to introduce such dire conflicts. But overall I definitely liked it.
