  • H2O is about a boy, Hirose Takuma, who arrives in a village. He's blind, but a spirit called Otoha somehow heals his illness. Now, he befriends the people (mostly girls) there, and many dramatic events unfold.moreless

    The story in itself was really nice. It's sad, yet happy, and it's dramatic. It gives me a feeling of happiness when watching, but also a sad feeling. And whilst it was really good, it was way too sudden at times though. And the jump-the-shark episode (episode 8) kind of ruined things, but I'm glad that it returned to normal after that episode. Anyway, this story was great IMO. Oh, and the last episode just couldn't settle on an end, which was irritating. I mean, first, I was somewhat at comfort with the first "ending". But not at all, suddenly something else happens, and the end has different outlook. I got used to that too, though. Then, at the last second, yet another thing happens. In the end, I wasn't sure whether I should cry of disappointment or happiness. Looking back now, I think I can say for certain that I liked the end though.

    All in all, the story had its flaws and sudden moments, and one dreadful episode. The last episode couldn't settle on an end until the very last second. Despite these bad things, it was really enjoyable.

    The animation wasn't anything spectacular, but it wasn't completely average either. Therefore, I am not sure what I can say about it either. I guess you will have to watch for yourselves, really.

    Officially, I'm in love with this anime's soundtrack. Both the OP and ED themes were fantastic songs, and there were some really nice, enjoyable and moody piano pieces in this anime as well. I'm a big fan of piano music in anime shows, so that's a definite plus. Basically, I'm sure that anyone who enjoys piano music will enjoy the soundtrack as well.

    The characters in this anime were pretty good. I mean, this anime has some very interesting characters. One of them is the very annoying, self-glorificating Yui. You also have the rather, um... feminine, cross-dressing boy Hamaji. And then you do, of course, have the grumpy, old village elder. I mean, how come village elders are always rude jerks with no sense of compassion for others? It's kind of weird. But then, this kind of series need a character like this, I guess.

    Of course, you have the main character, a boy who changes everything upon coming to the village. There was something about his character which I found interesting, but also bits and parts which were annoying. I guess he was just too kind, really. But then, if he was not, there wouldn't have been a story, so I was kind of okay with it.

    All in all, I really liked this anime, even though it had it's flaws and some bad moments *cough*Episode 8*cough*.moreless
