Synopsis

Long ago, all humans lived in the ocean. But some who longed for the land abandoned the ocean, casting off the special raiments granted to them by the sea god to adapt them to life under the sea...

Though mankind was divided into sea dwellers and land dwellers, each with different ways of thinking, they were all still fellow humans, and they continued to maintain contact as time went on.

Sakishima Hikari, Mukaido Manaka, Hiradaira Chisaki, and Isaki Kaname live in an undersea village, while Kihara Tsumugu lives on land.

When these middle school second-year land and sea dwellers meet for the first time, their hearts begin to undulate like the tides.

The youthful fantasy tale of these young people's lives unfolds in a strange and beautiful world.

The age-old idiom of "don't judge a book by its cover" never ceases to amaze me. Every so often you come across an anime that just blows your expectations out of the water and delivers something completely different. In the case of Nagi no Asukara, on the surface (or below the surface in this case) it mostly looks like yet another done-to-death high-school romcom. Consequently, if there was one thing I didn't expect coming into this, it'd be that it turned out to be the most beautiful anime TV-series I've seen aired since 2011.

Change is always something unexpected and unique, regardless if it's moving or doing something for a change of pace, there's something new for you. The coming of age story has been repeated countless times, and I can't remember the last time it was executed as wonderfully as this. Feelings are expressed, hearts broken, but still, friendship is repaired and made. Given the factor of fantasy in the anime, you're in for an adventure that you'll remember, and characters that are original from any other.

To explore the diverse set of ranges this anime goes over, you'll need to understand the story behind it all: Humans originated read more

When I first saw the description for Nagi No Asukara I really didn't know what to expect. The synopsis didn't really give off much of an idea of what this show was going to be like. So thinking that Nagi no Asukara would be another cheesy romantic comedy. I began watching with low expectations. Little did I know that what I was about to watch would be one of the most enjoyable slice of life anime I have seen in a long time.

First a little background, having just watched Golden Time, I was on the look out for something new to watch and first came across Nagi no Asukara in the suggestions list. At a first glance at the anime and having read its description, I thought perhaps it could be worthwhile and decided to chance it. It didn't disappoint at all, this show was magical from start to finish and I couldn't have been happier to have stumbled across this gem. It certainly ranks among my top 7 favourite anime.

This show is a "slice of life, fantasy and romance" show in a nutshell, however it takes read more

Recommendations

It's a "light" feeling anime about a group of friends, just like AnoHana. I would definitely recommend it. They both have fantasy elements and are about how a group of friends' lives are changed forever by different circumstances, including love, among other things.
A coming of age story about romance and opening their eyes to the world they live in. Changes and Growing up, truths and lies. They both have this supernatural feel to it, but Shinsekai Yori definitely has a darker edge.
Gorgeous settings in sea side towns, unique aspects not seen in other anime, and realistic character interactions among a group of kids who have grown up together.
How within the group of friends, their corresponding love interests are pretty similar. The main characters having a love interest for an "alien". In Ano Natsu the main Kaito a human falls for Ichika an alien, in Nagi no Asukara its kinda the reverse. The main Manaka a half human and fish (alien) falls for Tsumugu a human. Characters that play similar roles in both are, ( Nagi no Asukara 1st ) Hikari and Kanna, Chisaki and Tetsurou, Kaname and Mio.
-Both were aired at the same time
-Both heavily focused on romance and drama, with a touch of fantasy for NnA.
-shippers would actually have a bit of a hard time discerning who their favorite pair is
-both are set (not focused) in schools

Now this is where its different. you got a group of adults and a group of kids, but both groups have problems that are opposite of their age group. the "adults" are wishy-washy, cry a lot, and have problems kids could take care of. The "kids" on the other hand are way mature, actually have more sense to their thoughts and actions, and have more solid personalities, not something flaky like the salt flake snow.
Realistic, supernatural anime that deal with love in all its different forms. In addition, there are striking similarities between the main protagonists and their respective relationships with their families and their primary love interests.

Consider watching the other if you enjoy the exploration of the themes of romance, friendship, family, and the changes in these relationships as time passes.
