Long ago, all humans lived beneath the sea. However, some people preferred the surface and abandoned living underwater permanently. As a consequence, they were stripped of their god-given protection called "Ena" which allowed them to breathe underwater. Over time, the rift between the denizens of the sea and of the surface widened, although contact between the two peoples still existed.

Nagi no Asu kara follows the story of Hikari Sakishima and Manaka Mukaido, along with their childhood friends Chisaki Hiradaira and Kaname Isaki, who are forced to leave the sea and attend a school on the surface. There, the group also meets Tsumugu Kihara, a fellow student and fisherman who loves the sea.

Hikari and his friends' lives are bound to change as they have to deal with the deep-seated hatred and discrimination between the people of sea and of the surface, the storms in their personal lives, as well as an impending tempest which may spell doom for all who dwell on the surface.

This one hit me right in the feels. It got me all sorts of emotional and I really appreciate how it confronts the pain and fear that comes from change in life. I believe one of the core messages of this show is that while change can be terrifying and hurt a lot, the growth that comes from enduring it is worthwhile. The joy that we can find by embracing change and making the most of our lives leads to lasting growth and positively impacts the human experience.

The romance is very complicated and seems to constantly change throughout the show with who actually likes ...

A Lull In The Sea is an anime that does not make any sense.

The premise of the series is that all humans once lived in the sea until some left the sea to live on land, and the series’s central conflict is about the hostile dynamic between the sea dwellers and the land dwellers. So, pretty rich worldbuilding right?


The society under the sea looks exactly like society on land, which is…odd, considering the sea came first. Shouldn’t land-life be modeled after sea-life and not the other way around? Well, considering there are more opportunities on land, I might be able to buy that the sea ...

Nagi no Asu kara for the first 12 or something episodes is like oppenheimer watching the A bomb at the trinity site. Its Fun, Cool, Intresting. But than comes Little boy and Fat man. Holy shit does this anime fucking jump 10 sharks. Im not going to get into spoilers but I felt tramatized after watching it. It was so horrendousily bad at the end. Its just devolves into degeneracy it pulls a SAO where part 1 was really good and than the other half of the anime was so gross and weird. Except Nagi no Asu kara brings in fucking time skips, Kids and ...

The Art of Time Skips: When, How and Why

With flashbacks, plot twists and foreshadowing often being the most analyzed narrative elements in anime, time skips get ignored quite often. However, they offer just as much potential, for better or for worse.
