I started reading Waters because I like the author and rivers. Used to live near a river, and once was fascinated with the way it carried away the corpses of bugs and the filth of my hands, yet never seemed to dirty its water. At the time I was very young so I didn’t understand the hydrological cycle. To me the river was an invincible, cleansing place trapped in its own world.

The story involves a family and their home village. It begins with Chinami, who lives in a present beset by heat and water shortages. She passes out and wakes up in a place read more

Suiiki (Waters) is a drama that focuses on a girl named Chinami and her family’s heritage. Due to a heatwave in Japan she faints repeatedly and dreams about a mysterious Valley by a river. The story is two volumes short (~460 pages) and contains a minimal amount of supernatural elements, but so lightly that you can probably overlook it, if you're not into that.

The story is mainly told through the dream scenes and flashbacks, this might be confusing at times but seems to be necessary to let the story slowly unwrap itself to fit the big picture. Parts of the story were quite predictable, but read more

Both being made by the same mangaka, is extensively based on rural japan. Similarly like Mushishi, a lot of focus is given on myths and the lives of the people affected by it. If you're looking to experience the same kind of heavenly feeling, this should be up your alley.

In both Manga, the MC were went to the past caused by supernatural course to change their family relationship. Both manga are much more focused on its character rather than plot itself. The art in both are shady, sketchy and looks old, but give the atmosphere to the story. The chance are if you like one, you'll probably like the others. Plus even if you haven't read both I recommend you to read it since they are very short.

Both manga slice of life and involve sea/water genres. Though Amanchu is more into comedy and suiiki more into drama.  
reportRecommended by Giesela
both manga revolve around water, have some mystery/fantasy and are short reads

It's a bit hard to explain why these are similar.
Both have villages near a river for a setting and both are slice of slife with a bit of supernatural to it.
They both gave me a familiar vibe.

an adventure through the sea, the main characters are children
If you wanted to read something similiar to Suiiki I'd recommend Kaijuu no Kodomo
