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.

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, read more

H2O has been a really interesting anime to watch, it certainly is a show that you're either going to love, or hate.

Story: The story of this show is really a story that you will either enjoy from the beginning till the end, or start to question what the hell is going on and end up confused. IMO I enjoyed the story from beginning to end, they did have 2 certain episodes which I felt were not really necessary to have (ep 4, ep 8). I will say, I love animes that always gives me shocking moments that make me go OMGWTFWASTHATNOWAI! and H2O certainly give read more

H2O: Footprints in the Sand is a Psychological, Supernatural, Romance anime about a blind junior-high boy (Takuma) who moves to a quite rural town. He is given the given the gift of sight in order for him to help the people who need it the most.

The story to H2O is very simple and easy to follow however it tends to randomly add developments, just to complicate matters. After the first couple episodes you will begin to wonder when all the unexplained stuff will be explained but there’s no real urgency with this series. There seems to be a number of underlining plots in the story read more

H2O: Footprints in the Sand; another melodrama based on a visual novel. Not a good one either. Well, it has some drama, some romance, some comedy, even a bit of psychological but none of it stands out. This anime is still rather generic and there are about a dozen better titles out there that do the exact same things. The only thing worth mentioning is that it's at least not that predictable. I guess. Whatever, let's get on with the review.

Story (25%) - 3/10

Surprise, another school setting. The most annoying part of the first half is the fact that the supernatural element is hardly explored read more

Recommendations

They're both really mysterious and are about a weird girl meeting a special boy.
Both are anime that seem to be nice and charming but have a awful twist!
Both of these animes deal with villages that harbor a dark secret. Both of the villages have residents that take justice into their own hands. In Higurashi, the secret is much more hidden. In H2O, not a lot of effort is made to hide the secret
I don't know, it just is. Bunch of girls with various different lifes get joined together by one boy. It's a really good watch :3
In both a girl is lonely and being bullied by others. A kind boy helps them and then a love triangle shows up.
Both slice of life, bit dramatic. Also they started airing around the same time =)
