I'm soooo, so happy there was a time skip. Seriously. I chose 4/5 because I think they could have explained things a bit better in this episode, so it was still a great episode and I know they're going to expand on it in the next few. I really want to know what happened to Manaka.

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.
Lol, exactly how I felt about this series. I was just about to drop it early on, but I'm SO glad I didn't.

So the timeskip did happen. Oh my, the feelings we get with this. I particularly love the OST, really great.

So the ships seems all over the place now haha. I didn't see any grown up Manaka in the OP or ED, so I have that feeling she's not coming back, at least permanently. I'm looking forward to next week. It's funny how, when I thought this series had finish growing up on me, it always does each episodes.

@xCrylo Yeah I'm surprised by the ratings too, I thought this would easily be an 8 considering how other anime are rated.

I like your pairings, I disagree a bit on the fact that Miuna has become more independent as we've only seen a good minute of her that's a big assumption. The most disappointing and slightly annoying thing is how all/maybe most the characters like someone who doesn't like them back.

Idk how to feel, i really wanted Manaka x Hikari, but now Miuna and Hikari seems the most likley. I feel like Hikari x Miuna will end up happening, the out of nowhere Manaka will just show up.

i was surprised of the timeskip, i was expecting the next episode to continue where it left off, but i guess not. and why is everyone shipping miuna with hikari? i don't understand that. that's his niece i don't think he'd feel anything for her besides family love. besides, we're not sure if manaka is officially gone. she might come back, and i remember her saying that she wanted to tell hikari something. i'm sure it was a confession. but hey, i might be wrong.

looks like chisaki stayed?
first off, just with the op it's pretty obvious that there are going to be miuna / hikari feelings
everything starts off really cute
i think they did a really good job with the time skip designs, the changes really subtle but you can tell the characters are older and have changed a bit.
wow these chisaki / tsumugu feelings are growing.
you know when i first looked at the anime poster i was definitely not prepared for emotional damage.
ALSO WHERE IS KANAME. I AM ANGRY. WHERE IS KANAME. KANAME DEFENSE SQUAD.

5 years passed, Everyone was Aged and Changed, and Hikari who frozen age due Hibernation wake up in Sadness because she Failed to save Manaka. Glad Hikari was saved but still depressing episode. :'(

Wow. Just wow. Five years. Age differences. I have to say I was expecting time skip but the way they did it was the best.
Love polygon is now officially broken and now one arises (Miyuna is now same age as Hikari).

Tsumugu is old whereas Manaka is young.
Chisaki is old whereas Hikari is young.
Dat consequences.

I wonder if others are waking up even later. And Manaka waking up the last?

Oh well - one thing I have to say - adult Chisaki is looking so hot! :)

Oh boy this show is back and the feels have returned from that cliffhanger of an episode. Of course this one ended in another one too but it looks like the show will be going in a different direction. Liking the new OP and ED :)

Wow. All those feels. I actually felt for Tsumugu finally, you could tell it's killing him to live with Chisaki while she thinks primarily of the others. That and Miuna's situation are the most interesting to me going forward. Kaname x Sayu is pretty much a lock, though I wonder when he'll come back.

Goodness, that ending was just executed so damn well.

OMG. No freaking way. This is amazing! I absolutely love time skips - that's why I love manga like BgI and NANA.

I'm happy that Chisaki stayed on the surface. It sucks a bit for her, but it adds an interesting complication to the story, and I absolutely love how close she's gotten to Tsumugu. It's beautiful that he still respects her love for Hikari though, even though Tsumugu clearly likes Chisaki, and really, always has.

Poor Tsumugu. Chisaki should really love him. :)

I'll always be a Tsumugu x Chisaki fan. Seriously. They work so well together, and I consider myself a lot like Chisaki - I think too much, just like her. I know I would do well with someone more straightforward like Tsumugu.

Anyways. Wow. This is awkward for Hikari. Well, since he's still in junior high like Miuna, I guess their romance will work out? ;D
That's just wrong though. Miuna loving her uncle >_< Gah, but it's real now. Poor kid she rejected.

I'm kinda set with these relationships for the end:
Hikari x Manaka
Tsumugu x Chisaki
And then poor Miuna and Kaname are left over.

I wonder if Kaname showed up with Hikari, though. When Kaname learns that Chisaki and Tsumugu stayed together, I think he'll be pissed. Well, not pissed. xD Just hurt. Because them hugging that was literally the last thing his eyes saw before he fell over >__> WELLL, he's gotta deal with it, because that is my OTP this season ahaha.

I just cannot wait for the next episode, kyaa <3

The last time we had a great timeskip was all the way back in Shinsekai Yori, so I can't wait to see what Nagi no Asukara does with this timeskip!

Those two could spend a night together naked in the same bed and still not get together. Seriously, they'd just turn out the lights, go to sleep and wake up like nothing happened.

What...why did episode end ;_; i want more, come on.
I feel so bad for Miuna and Tsumugu tho.Well, more for Miuna who will probably end up alone when Manaka magically shows up.Tsumugu will probably end up with Chisaki, and Kaname with Sayu.At least thats what i think.

Anyways, after first episode of this show i rated it 6/10.13 episodes after, it went up to 9/10, just too awesome.

Wow this episode was agreat kick-start to the second half.

The new op and ed do not fail to impress me, it was perfect in terms of the new story.

A five year time skip though, that blew me away, I wasn't expecting five years, two or three at the most but wow! FIVE. Regardless the episode was still well executed, most if not all my feels are gone as of after watching Nagi.
One thing that's been really getting at me is the Tsumugu x Chiaski pairing, I won't say its bad but i don't really support it because I still want Hikari to win )':

Tbh, I was hoping that Hikari would have like.. aged while he was hibernating just so there was a bigger possibility of the Hikari x Chiaski couple to form, it's kind of saddening to see him still in his youth and she and Tsumugu had aged.

Miuna is still so pretty though.

Gahhh theres some crazy love octagon or something happening, all I know is that I can't wait for the next episode!

If this turns into Miuna x Hikari and leaving Manaka dead, Ima flip a table. The first half did nothing to get me liking Miuna enough for her to be a replacement love interest.

Will probably decide to drop or keep going with the series by the end of next episode.


If you drop the series because of ships you'll be making a mistake. This is by far the best show I have seen in a long while.

With the emphasis placed on romance, it'd be weird if I didn't. Hell, I wish they'd move on from their love polygon and focus on the plot, because the premise is very interesting -- much more so than the character interactions.

Took me a while to figure out there was a time-skip, right when the guy driving mentioned Egawa getting someone pregnant, so I thought to myself "Talk of middle school kids doing it...on a PG13 anime that's going to be aired on TV? Impossibru. Some significant amount of time must have passed"

I was expecting Hikari to punch through the ice like a zombie clawing out of it's grave. A bit disappointed. Also, why did he have to be naked? Did the sea god or the sea strip him before putting him in cold-sleep? Because if that's the case, there's going to be a lot of naked people waking up in that village eventually.

Was hoping he had aged along with everyone else, like a person in a coma rather than someone cryogenically frozen. Because now, although he is just as old as Tsumugu, Hikari's still mentally and physically a middle school kid when he should be a college kid. That makes it more awkward with him being the same as Miuna, and will probably be attending school with her, also being a potential love interest despite technically being her uncle (Is that legal? Even by marriage or distantly related?)...not that it's unheard of, since I myself am in the same age group as my uncle and aunt.

I hope the rest of them start to wake up in the next episode...hopefully clothed, because if they aren't, then Hikari has no damn reason to be naked!

Almost forgot to mention it, but that Akira kid needs a smack in the head. I don't know what Japan's cultural viewpoint towards this act of sexual assault is, but if they deem it to be innocent mischief, then it's still messed up regardless. And yes, it's sexual assault, not harassment. I see it as no different than kicking a pregnant woman in the stomach. Or imagine poking someone in the ass that has hemorrhoids. There would be a lot of pain, blood, and fecal matter. Don't even try to play the "he's too young to know any better" BS card with me, because whatever his parents are doing to teach him he shouldn't do it, they're obviously not strict enough. I hope Akari eventually turns into the stereotypical large, loud, and husky mother with a stick seemingly glued to her hand ready to give anyone a spanking at any given time while screaming at the top of her lungs "Get back here you damn kids!". But seeing as how this show is okay with showing the full ass of naked young boys of TV (Tsumugu even covered him with his jacket, but they made him not even use it!)...I don't think this is going to happen within this lifetime. I'm beginning to think this show was made for a primarily female audience.

Well, I feel bad for Kaname, poor kid never got the chance.
the op makes so feel so awkward how Kaname is so small compared to Chisaki.
I was kinda rooting for the Manaka and Tsumugu boat, but the last few episodes kind of made me feel that she was too bright or distant from him. And now I there's like no hope for the pairing. ; 7 ;

Now that Manaka is temporarily out of the picture while everyone is back, there's a lot of room for dramatic development hur.
Does anyone know why Manaka has fins, while no one else seems to btw? ' 3 '

Wow. A lot of things has changed, like from the visual they revealed.

Can't wait to see how Hikari will get by.

With Hikari's body in about the same age as Miuna, looks like they would be paired from what I see... and Chisaki and Tsumugu... really loving their pairing now, since they are the once who grew up together after all.

thank god they're not... and Tsumugu doesn't seem to be happy about this... good for him.. I hate that guy with a passion.

I hated Chisaki on the previous episode because she was like : "I don't care whatever happens to y'all... I will hug and protect Tsumugu until everything's back to normal".. which is why shes the only one left... I like loyal people and if she still like Hikari then all is fine.

Also who in their right mind would let a teenage girl live in a house where a boy in the same age also lives and expect nothing will happen??? Come on.. we all know shes better off with Akari's.

But then I still like this episode and this anime... feel sorry for Miuna though but hey they might be on the same age now... I'm open for possibilities..

well, she feels more apart from them because all her precious tomodachis have been gone, and she can't help doubt they might be dead. esp when she made Kaname sink back down, she probably has a lot of guilt built up over the years.

and she couldn't have possibly gone with Akari because she couldn't deal living with Hikari's sister with all this guilt, it would make her feel more cornered. and akari being all pregos and stuff.

Im still routing for HikarixManaka, Miuna is really cute, but its her uncle! xD But HikaruxMiuna will work, would also love that pairing, but still think Manaka will be perfect for Hikari.

seems like Kaname does not appear till later on.

Man those feels are to much.


Same! HikarixMiuna is too weird and awkward. So far Hikari has not shown any romantic interest whatsoever in Miuna. HikarixManaka all the way!

I hope you're right. I can't stand the thought of Chisaki with Tsumugu. I feel she's too good for him or rather no one is her equal except maybe Kaname. I'd be so pissed if she ends up with Tsumugu.

Wow! I was so blown away by the time skip! Like I knew it was bound to happen but for things to have turned out this way was just shocking! Chisaki getting left behind and getting taken in my Tsumugu and his grandpa was something I did not see coming at all! Their relationship has evolved a lot and I'm pretty sure Tsumugu loves her now even though she loves Hikari but omg it doesn't stop there, Hikari comes back and is still like 13!! Wtf is she going to do now? And Miuna who still loves him just happens to be his age now however he is still like her uncle! Haha things couldn't get any more interesting then this. This is by far the biggest love polygon I have ever seen in any anime ever!

Can't wait for next week xD

I think this episode was pretty good. The flashbacks and the timeskip showed a lot of character developments, as many posts before me have pointed out.

So far it seems TsumuguxChisaki is a likely possibility. Tsumugu definitely has some feelings for Chisaki since he said "she already likes someone" instead of "i don't have that type of feelings for her" when the professor asked him about their relationship. Chisaki's feelings for Hikari may still linger.

I was definitely SHOCKED when Miuna performed CPR on Hikari...for NO reason whatsoever since logically speaking Hikari is not like the surface people and did not wake up from his hibernation, yet, (as Tsumugu also pointed out) so Miuna taking advantage of the situation was not very pleasing to watch. No hard feelings for Miuna...but I feel sorry for Hikari for getting his first kiss stolen by his niece, whom he doesn't have any non-platonic feelings for.

Another shocker: Hikari stood up naked while Miuna was there. He was definitely overwhelmed with the whole time-skip situation. He most likely was also panicking because his last memory is of Manaka sacrificing herself to the sea god. Still...interestingly Miuna didn't even blush when she approached an almost-naked Hikari.

Predictions: I am 90% confident that Hikari's deep love for Manka won't waver so is most likely HikarixManaka in the end. Manaka probably won't show up until the last half for the "after timeskip arc". She also haven't told Hikari what she promised to tell him after episode 13. Manaka must likely will accept Hikari's feelings since she smiled at Hikari warmly after his confessions and did not appear shaken or uncomfortable.

But deym this episode is epic.... the most important part is the freaking opening!!

I can't help but think that the one who catches the umbrella is manaka!! lol

so what is the logical thing to do? nothing? oh and to bring logic into the equation is just ridiculous. Lets see young girl... sees guy shes in love with not breathing... stand there with hands in pockets? I think not.

The only logical reaction is to panic and try something anything to try to save the person. /facts

I'm so overwhelmed in feels. Like, this episode really set the tone for the second half I feel. I was already crying my eyes out for ep 13 and even just reaching the opening theme already made my stomach turn.

I'm really hoping for that ManakaxHikari. Miuna is too strange, since they're related now. Even if she had feelings for Hikari, I can't help but feel like throughout the entire opening, Hikari has this sad sort of smile, like he can't forget Manaka so I'm rooting for that all the way through even if she appears on the very last episode. I want her back soon though :(

idk bout u guys but the scenes with tsumugu and chisaki made me think more that chisaki realized her love for kaname....or maybe its just me rooting for chisaki x kaname XD. I sure as hell didn't interpret it as chisaki x tsumugu like alot of other ppl did.

I have a funny feeling manaka isn't coming back, and if she does it won't be for long or in human form (maybe ghost or spirit).

I do recognize that it is only natural for Miuna to act irrational upon seeing her love interest after 5 years. I was just using facts to express my distaste for MiunaxHikari and to express sympathy for Hikari. I don't know about others, but I wouldn't want to get un-needed CPR from someone who likes me and I don't like back because obviously that someone may have a selfish intent other than a pure purpose of trying to save a life. I wouldn't be mad at all if Tsumugu did CPR on Hikari because Tsumugu obviously doesn't have any selfish longing for Hikari.

Woah, all them feels just come popping right back up. I totally expected a time-skip, but I was thinking maybe one or two years.... but FIVE?!?!

Oh well.... at least that clears up a lot of the unresolved love angles somewhat.

Everyone seems to be on about Chisaki still having feelings for Hikari, but I think the one holding her back from any type of relationship is actually Kaname. Think about it, the guy confessed to you three times, you watch him get tossed into the sea and go missing for five years. Like I mentioned in my long-ass psycho-analysis in last episode's thread, the Hikari x Chisaki ship has already sunk since Ep 12.

But man... I still can't get over the five year time skip.... right now it seems like a lot of the love lines are being set into stone.

Hikari x Manaka is the most likely pairing of all of those. Why? Because he's the first in the long line of Sea People descendants, technically the next leader who has to continue the traditional bloodline of the Sea peps. If the Sea God ain't gonna let go of Manaka, he sure as heck won't let go of Hikari (Asian traditional thinking of how the male heir has to pass on the bloodline or something like that). In the end Hikari's feelings for Manaka are still too strong, I doubt even Miuna will be able to break that bond. It will be an interesting triangle to watch for the second half of the season though.

Chisaki x Tsumugu pairing was just like I predicted (I rule, lol). Survivors guilt will make it so they don't do nothing until certain feels are resolved.
Chisaki is in my opinion totally over Hikari. If, and I say this only because it hasn't happened yet, Kaname returns, we will get a crazy ass triangle where Kaname is at a huge disadvantage.
5 years of cohabitation is nothing to be sniffed at. Plus, Chisaki has already adapted to living on the surface world. To me, it would make no sense for her to return to the Sea Village any more, and in the eventuality that Kaname resurfaces like Hikari, Chisaki will then be resolved of her survivors guilt, and given the time-skip/hibernation effect leaving Kaname 5 years in the past, it will be even harder for Kaname and Chisaki to get together (not saying impossible just yet though), even if Kaname puts in all the time and effort to catch up to Chisaki, and even if Chisaki does feel responsible for Kaname falling into the water and stuff.
In my opinion though, the long-ass time skip effectively ended Kaname's chances. I totally feel for the guy, because he really was the most mature of the bunch and I was rooting for him.
Given he's not the heir of the Sea Village or anything, I think its possible Kaname'll either develop feelings for Sayu, or he'll end up as the forever alone best friend who gets the short end of the stick and goes back to the Sea Village because he won't be able to stand being in close proximity to the Chisaki x Tsumugu pairing.

As for Miuna, I think the second arc of this series will be all her trying to win Hikari over, losing the battle and then end up with her going out with the kid who confessed to her just now, or something like that. She may have been the star of this episode, but mark my words, she ain't anywhere close to getting with Hikari.

Oh wellz..... just my two cents. In a perfect world, the original four would have gotten together and Tsumugu would have buggered off somewhere with someone else, but this time skip just blew that out of the water (Seriously, he didn't do enough in the first half of the season to warrant my liking him, way too Emo).
Now all I'm hoping is that Kaname won't end up as the Emo/Forever Alone character that the author seems to want him to portray.

Dammit, next episode please!

Wow what a riveting episode. I absolutely love time skips and can't wait until they lay everything out. Not really enjoying the drama as much though.

I'm a little confused, why didn't Chisaki dive in after her friends? It seemed a little weird to me. Anyways, why are like half the comments saying that ships have sunk when they haven't? It's a five year timeskip, not a fifty year one. Sure, 14 and 19 sound far apart, but 18 and 23 don't.

because tsumugu fell in and hes the only one who cant breathe underwater. Also she obviously didn't know what would happen but seriously why would you jump into that ocean at that point? it was crazy. Id like to see you think rationally when a cataclysm is happening to you.
Dont be a chitogetard!!!!
