Wow this turned out to be quite an interesting anime, hasn't it?

The timeskip idea... brilliant! ( but makes such a mess in the shipping war)

Woaah and I thought this couldn't get any better! Feels like a different series now, but I love it!

I expected a time skip, but a shorter one like 2-3 years. I´m so happy that Kaname is still alive and that there´s pretty much no hope for HikarixChisaki. It´s the only pairing which I really hate.

Also I´m slowly starting to like Chisaki again. I have the feeling that Tsumugu likes her, but won´t admit it because he thinks she´s still in love with Hikari. I think she has accepted that she and Hikari will never be a pair, but can´t think about other potential partners at the moment because she feels guilty (because of Kaname) and sad (because all her friends are missing).


I´m pretty sure that when Kaname comes back he will still love Chisaki, but after a while Sayu will win his heart.

I really want to know if Manaka comes back and shexHikari will become a couple or if she comes back for a short time only to say goodbye to all of them (like Anohana) and MiunaxHikari stay together.

I really love this anime because it´s so full of surprises and the animation and music is so beautiful.

I don't think Tsumugu was into Chisaki that much I would say that he was rather into Manaka. I really don't want Kaname to end up with Sayu, I could come up with several reasons why I think that ship is wrong but I think I'll just say that's just bad and it shouldn't happen


Actually, Tsumagu has really only ever showed an interest in Chisaki, you could see the subtle hints when they were trying to set up the ceremony or when they were talking on the train. With Manaka he was more of just giving her advice or someone to talk too, I don't think he was ever interested in her.

So they're gonna go with the Hikari x Miuna, Sayu x Kaname and Chisaki x Tsumugu pairings now, I think.

Manaka's still in the OP though, maybe she'll come back?!


isn`t Manaka shown the whole Ending, too? (grown up)

edit: checked again. 100% Manaka


She's the only one in the ending, but she's not grown up, she's the same age she was. She still wears her old middle school uniform. Also, it's a little telling that they never show her face in the ED and that also, HER paper plane is separate from those of her her friends that now also include Miuna's and Sayu's. Also, Manaka's plane is white, which is a telling color.

I have a feeling that if Manaka does show up, it will only be for a short time to say goodbye. I think that she might even be the bride/wife of the sea god when she returns.

I guess this show actually has the potential to be quite good! Like an annoying, immature, short-tempered crybaby blossoming into a beautiful young woman, or some similarly analogous junk ^_^

Seriously though, everything about this episode is a huge upgrade from the first cour.

I agree with you there, Tsumugu really had no feelings with anyone up until these 5 years. If you think about it he has had 5 years to spend with Chisaki. He's seen her at her worst and lived with her through it. She took over the job of watching over her grandpa (mostly because she felt indebt to him for taking her in) which was originally Tsumugu's job. But what really would make this addition to the polygon would be because of the 5 years they spent together. Even though I myself would hate to admit it but Tsumugu could most likely have feelings with Chisaki because of the Close proximity they have had for about 4-5 years before he went to college. In which brings up another argument, I feel he went to study about the relation between the sea and land because Chisaki was so stuck about how her friends were ripped from her life for the past 5 years, Tsumugu felt abliged to help because he regrets not being able to help her 5 years ago (when she broke down after the incident of the ofunehiki). As much as I don't like it and wish she could be with Hikari or Kaname, I cannot let my bias cloud this much evidence of another possible pairing.
The storytelling is superb in this show, but in the end, I feel that this show's rating is going to be shot down when the love polygon gets solved.
Those of us watching this show probably don't realize the roller-coaster we got on since episode one, and the ride gets more intense as time goes by and it's beginning to scare me when the climax hits and the resolution sets in. People will be angry, people will be sad, maybe some even might be happy. But we can probably agree this is one of the best written shows in 2013 -2014.

Not quite remember, Chisaki still likes Hikari, Kaname still possibly likes Chisaki. Hikari and Tsumugu had 0 relations except as friends in the first place. The only thing about this polygon is to add a fine line linking Tsumugu to Chisaki. (All lines are still one sided, and unrequited)

Not a chance. That's only what Tsumugu thinks.

Also, didn't you see how much she was blushing when Tsumugu was wearing his new high-school uniform. She likes him. If you can't tell you're not paying enough attention. Watch the episode again, pay attention to her expressions. They say a lot.

The Chisaki x Tsumugu pair is most likely mutual or they both haven't realised it exists yet. There have been subtle hints from both of them that they harbour feelings beyond friendship.

No, she had already liked Hikari since the beginning and I doubt 5 years would change any of that. However you do bring up a good point. Perhaps she does have feelings for Tsumugu maybe now but with the information we have present we can still safely say Chisaki still likes Hikari. In future episodes (ie the next episode) we could get some more information on how she feels towards Hikari. But for now, we have no idea.

Probably, more information is still needed. Of course the feeling beyond friendship is indeed there, because of the proximity they were living for the past 5 years. But it feels like she was acting more Motherly than anything else. "Have you packed your underwear" isn't something you say to someone you like. Someone argued she blushed when he wore a uniform, but wouldn't any female swoon at someone who looks good in good clothes? But do remember that was high school and she was going through that age where sexual tension begins to rise. All in all the information we are given can still point 2 directions and only until the show concludes can we say one thing over the other. I am merely not cutting out all possible pairings just yet until we are shown the outcomes.

She can end up with Tsugumu but still keep this feelings for Hikari, but yes Okada really likes the unrequited love, if I remember right, she had already said in an interview.

In that case the same could be said for Tsumugu, he was acting more like a family member to her than anything else. Nothing he has done so far is anywhere near enough proof to say he likes her, which is why I think they both haven't realised it yet.

My favorite Anime currently. Love everything about it.
Talk about a web of love triangles.
For a second , I thought Chisaki married Tsumugu, and I was super happy but then...

I feel that when Tsumugu referred to Chisaki liking someone already was him saying at the present time there's no point of having feelings for her(because she likes/liked someone else). We don't entirely know Chisaki's feelings.

True, and whether that meant that Tsumugu actually liked her at that point is uncertain. We don't entirely know either of their feelings, that's the point I'm trying to make.

Which is why I said"I feel". I was stating that both of them IMO could/do in some way have feelings for one another, but have simply pushed them down at the present.

OH GOD Chisaki is so sex now! Go Tsumu, get that hot chick!
I really don't think she has still a crush on Hikari.
Miuna will have the same experience with Hikari as Chisaki did. He's marked with "for Manaka only". I wonder how it will turn out in the end though.
And with Sayu also 5 years older finally someone who could return some love to Kaname if he survived?

This anime is so twisted and love-triangled i want to rip out my hair and cry ... so much love in the wrong place ...

Wow! Didn't expect the first episode of this series coming back from the break to have so much impact! Drama! Drama everywhere!

I thought that Tsumgu and Chisaki were a pair from the beginning of the episode with that living together and the "housewife" line but it was a misunderstanding :<

Looks like even more drama is gonna appear! Maybe Manaka comes back as well? Next week can't come fast enough :I

Chisaki is now 5 years older and on a nursing school.
Also the opening was just amazing, I couldn't wish for a better opening than that, the ending was also nice but again to much Manaka, who knows what it means, I don't know.

I was really shocked after seeing the timeskip, because i never knew that something like that would happen even after seeing the preview video of the next episode.

Miuna has grown older now, so another shipping could be Hikari X Miuna, maybe Hikari x Chisaki even if she is 5 years older, Kaname also can get another shipping pair.

The last minutes were so intense, I don't know how to explain my reaction, I was kinda very very excited to see that, and then Hikaris reaction, as he see that everyone has changed.

I really can't wait for the next episodes........

Show pairings are probably going to end up as:
Chisaki x Tsumugu (seems almost certain at this point)
Kaname x Sayu (most likely?)
Miuna x Hikari (seems very unlikely)

My hypothesis is that Manaka is probably not going to show up until towards the later end of the shows (possibly epi 20+). In addition, I'm not entirely sure on the Miuna x Hikari. It is pretty accurate right now to assume that Miuna loves Hikari, but he's probably going to tell her something along the lines of : "I still like Manaka..." but nonetheless I am pleased with this episode and the wait time! Excited for the new time skip :)

5-year timeskip? Holy shit. I wasn't expecting 5 years. I figured 2 or 3...
Wow.

This was an excellent start to 2014 for Nagi no Asukara. Okada Mari is really bringing her A-game with this one.

Now, where's Kaname? The boss needs to make his triumphant return.

I think Chisaki and Tsumugu like each other, but they never actually brought it up. I mean, they showed subtle hints for both of them when they were kids and now they've grown up together throughout their teenage life and are now adults. That's a lot to go through together. In fact, there were a few times I thought they were already married, especially with Chisaki cooking and her helping Tsumugu pack and everything. Yes, Chisaki had a crush on Hikari when she was a kid, but times change and people mature. Also, Chisaki already knew it was going to be unrequited when she confessed to Hikari that night all those years ago. She knew he loved Manaka.

Also, there's the issue of the fact that Hikari hasn't changed at all in 5 years. He still has the mind and body of a preteen. Not only do girls mature and get through puberty faster, but now Chisaki and Hikari are on just two different levels. She's either through with or in the last stages of puberty, Hikari is at the beginning. Chisaki is an adult in college, Hikari is still a middle schooler/junior high. That's a very large gap both mentally, physically, and in maturity. I mean would you as an 18-20 year old, really still be interested in a 13-15 year old? It's two completely different levels of life.

The OP is so heartbreaking.

I'm glad that Chisaki found a new family. And it's Tsumugu's. (MY SHIP!!!)
This episode was great. Nice way to start their second half.

Never thought the time skip would be so long but wow!!! This episode has opened another can of relationship circles. With Miuna probably being Hakari's age now, I only see further problems for her. Considering how tough her life's been already, it's not the greatest time for this to happen (not to mention Hikari shouting out Manaka! oh looorrrd)

Only adds for even juicer drama though, so glad I chose to watch this anime, everything about it fits so well with each other.

Pretty drastic change. So much good drama in this episode, but still a bunch of things left unexplained like why Hikari returned and exactly what happened to everyone else in the sea.

My feels are overflowing. Almost cried during the Chisaki scenes. She's so precious. I'm guessing Kaname will return later on as well.

Also, damn. This love polygon is CRAZY! So many one-sided loves going on. Idk who to root for but I can finally see Tsumugu and Chisaki happening as well. I would be okay with it.

This anime is getting more sad. :(

I don't think what happened to Hikari can be considered the hibernation everyone was preparing for. Not only was it such a short amount of time, but conditions look worse than they were five years ago. Not to mention that he woke up on the surface, which seems more like a rejection from the sea than a welcome back.

Hikari x Manaka... Not going to happen any other way. :)

I guess these are the possible pairings right now
Chisaki x Tsumugu (I guess I can learn to like this pairing...)
Miuna x Hikari
Kaname x Sayu
Manaka x Watergodthing? (What if she actually aged as well? that would be interesting xD)

This series has evolved from "I'm going to drop this if this doesn't get better next week" to "I can't wait for next week!" The character development, the storytelling, the twists...oh my.

This whole hibernation thing is just sad. They're literally frozen in time. Five years have passed on the surface but for those who were frozen, it was as if it happened only...well a couple of minutes ago. The last thing Hikari saw was Manaka getting sucked under and poor Kaname's last memory was seeing Chisaki hugging Tsumugu. And now she's five years older than him...the gap just keeps getting bigger. My KanamexChisaki ship is about to sink. Plug the holes and ready the bail buckets! :( Well Sayu might be interesting but still...

Hikari x Miuna seems unlikely (though cute) but I bet there's gonna be so much Miuna-drama. Manaka's annoying but I can't just ship Hikari with anyone else.

This series has evolved from "I'm going to drop this if this doesn't get better next week" to "I can't wait for next week!" The character development, the storytelling, the twists...oh my.

^ For me it was "another PA works SOL with some feel-goods" ---> "ohmigod crying right now...brb feels"

You know MAL....you guys really need to get Nagi no Asukara a better rank than #713.

I'm really speechless about the twists they are bringing to this anime. Five year time skip, everyone aged except Hikari and I'm also guessing Kaname, but he hasn't shown up.

I don't like the Hikari x Miuna thing, but I'm really curious about what Chisaki will do once she sees Hikari after five years. That's equivalent to seeing your father after he enlisted in the army and hasn't been back, since she did love him or is it now going to be Tsumugu x Chisaki? (My personal opinion is divided, Chisaki x Kaname but I also want Kaname to end up with Sayu, since now she is the same league as him.)

What will Akari do once she sees her little brother? How will everyone respond to this miracle!!!!!!! What happened to Manaka? Well looking at the anime, they are bound to help one another, so once Kaname comes up they will try hard to find Manaka. Of course that's only a hypothesis.

My final couple paring that I want....

Hikari x Manaka
Kaname x Chisaki or Kaname x Sayu
Tsumugu x Chisaki and
Miuna x Beach Boy :P

As the character development goes, we see Chisaki still trying to be strong, Tsumugu has become a oceanographer (I think it was called) but has the same personality trait, romantic tone pretty much surrounds them. On the other hand Miuna has become taller (better looking *winky face*) and has become more independent, as Akari said "It's all thanks to Miuna". Suya also becomes taller (better looking *winky face*) and isn't naive anymore. Thinking more logically but has the same type of attitude.

MAL, please rank this anime higher, not for it's art or it's amazing tone setting OST but because this love story will become something memorable to most of us viewers. -Crylo

well talk about a strong start That Op by it self gave me more feels than most of s1 it was so depressing along with this episode :(

but now after this the shipping is all out of wrack, though Miuna going after Hikari which is now the same age and her uncle is kinda interesting and weird at the same time.

say what you will about Chisaki least she fine as hell now. "lonely housewife"
