One Word: Wonderful
30 April 2014 | by marananrafaelSee all my reviews

Nagi no Asakura was a very entrancing series. The details were very vivid and the characters are well developed in a suitable pace where the story takes you into itself. It was like the sea itself where you can submerge as a diver. Then as you feel the water around you, you realize how beautiful it is and that it was going to be a memorable experience.

The plot was well thought out and the idea of "sea people" and "land people" was quite original. Naturally, viewers would have a lot of questions in mind and the series would be there to answer the questions. I certainly felt immersed in the series. There were a lot to know and a lot to appreciate in this wonderful show. 10/10
