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

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.
