So while watching I wasn't all like teary and all. But then when I finished the episode and thought about it. I was like, hot damn all those feels. It's really sad for Chisaki to go through this.

Also, I'm predicting Manaka to come back juuuuuuuust when Hikari warms up to Miuna's affections to make more drama!

End-game Ships:
Hikari x Manaka
Tsumugu x Chisaki
Kaname x Sayu
Miuna x Beach boy

I'm really sad that two of my favourite pairings have been sunk. HikarixChisaki and ChisakixKaname.
If they decide to sink HikarixManaka I am seriously going to cry. I want to at least see Hikari having a happy ending with Manaka. I've never been a big fan of ChisakixTsumugu nor have I ever been against it, for me it's just that I really like Kaname and was hoping for a KanamexChisaki pairing. Though this episode did a very good job showing us how the relationship between Chisaki and Tsumugu has changed.
I need episode 15 now, this series is only getting better and better.

I was doubtful that they could make an episode with more impact than 13 but 14 turned out to be another gem. I'm glad I picked this up.

The characters usually tend to be more on the melodramatic side, but so far their interactions have been fairly natural and the way the events pan out make it all the more interesting since it's so hard to predict what comes next.

I really hope Hikari ends up with Miuna, both because I can't stand Manaka and Hikari x Manaka is too predictable. That and I'm hoping for Kaname x Sayu, because I'm tired of seeing Kaname fawning over what is probably a lost cause. I think Sayu can give him the happiness he deserves.

This episode really took me by surprise.
I didn't expect the 5 year gap aswell, but the ending, my god that was pretty amazing.

Also, who is the teenage boy was playing with Akari's son who is supposedly called 'Akira'. When I first saw him, he looked like Kaname, but the eye colour was different, so it couldn't be him and because of the last episode hes sleeping in the sea still like Manaka.

Anyone know who he is?!
Anyways, awesome episode, looking forward to the next one. 1000000000000/10

Well, I liked this time skip! Older characters.

Though it really sets the scene for Miuna x Hikari, lol.

I think that Hikari is an envoy of some sort. There's certainly a reason he was sent out when he was, perhaps he's been sent to check out how the outside world has been doing, or perhaps to send some kind of message.

Either ways, things will get more and more interesting now.

Also, I really enjoyed seeing Chisaki and Tsumugu grown up. They're practically family as it is, and Tsmugu apparently seems to have developed a thing for her too. I hope it works out.

I still want my snowpocalypse though...

Wow this is great. 5/5. Definitely.

I was rather surprised when I saw Hikari naked lol. He still had clothes when he was hibernating o-o; Where did they go? I don't think somebody or something would possibly strip his clothes up haha.

In my opinion, it'll probably be:
Tsumugu x Chisaki
Kaname x Sayu(Not really sure though, I kinda have a feeling that Kaname will still like Chisaki for a while)
Hikari x Manaka
Miuna x Classmate-kun (Since Hikari x Miuna seems unlikely)

Dramatic overload. or something

The new opening and ending are really good~ Dos paper planes.
I think the next few episodes will probbably be focused on Miuna's one-sided feelings for Hikari and about Kaname waking up and finding out about Chisaki living at Tsumugu's place... Lol I can kinda imagine that reaction XD

Anyway this anime is definitely the best fall 2013 anime i watched.

The opening pretty much confirmed to us that Manaka is still alive, unfortunately ..

Chisaki lost her anal virginity.

Motherfucking Hikari is back, it was only one episode but I missed him.

Tsumugu still confirming himself as the worst passive character in the show.

Holy shit that was epic.

I don't know what to feel about it right now. Seriously, the romance relationships got more complicated. Well, fuck P.A is doing a good job on this.

P.S
Please no Tsumugu x Chisaki ending. That is just shit. That's like killing Kaname 2 times.

The relationships are so fucked up, and yet, it is so enjoyable.
Surprisingly enough, I've become addicted to this show.
Even though the first part was slow and maybe a little too plotless, I have this feeling that real shit starts here.
Yep. I like that.

Damn nigga, I feel the same way, but it will probably turn out that way. Well, unless Nagi no Asukara plans on shitting some surprises on me, like it always does. I'm assuming Sayu is gonna give kaname some ass, so that makes me feel a little better. :P

Naruto Reference anyone?

WOW... YES he came back.
Man stuff did go down while THEY we under...
I love how Hikari's body grew as well over the years, instead of being "frozen" that would have been very awkward...
Those feels though. I never knew Miuna felt that way for him either...
DAT opening theme... is the best...

That was an amazing episode. 5 years have past?! God damn! So Chisaki lived with the old man and Tsumugu. Akari has a child now too. Miuna and her friend are in middle school now. Such an emotional and sad tone throughout the entire episode. Then mother flippin' naked Hikari appears and he hasn't aged at all. He's basically the same age as Miuna too. OIC what you're doing P.A. Works, trying to make the Miuna x Hikari ship legal. xD The OP and ED were also really beautiful. Why is Nagi no Asukara so good? Damn you, P.A. Works! :D

waaay better than chuunibyou s2 start. new opening isnt as fantastic as the first one, but still very awesome. the snow scenes are very impressive! i like the new ending song more but the ending scenes arnt that impressive than the scenes in both openings but still very beautiful! didnt expected a time skip, were most of them have changed so much. well done. great drama will continue. *yay but the best is the still stunning animation especially this episode! every time my eyes are as big and bright as those of the kids. *_* now in 2014 q1 there is no non non biyori, so this show jumps on the first place (followed by Space Dandy, gin no saji and koiuta, chuunibyou has to deliver more to go near them ...).

At first I was so confused... wasn't really expecting a time skip. (Though after SSY, why am I even surprised?)

By the end I was all 'SOMEONE HOLD ME!'

RichiePyne-- Hikari's body didn't grow. When Tsumugu and Miuna found him, he was still looking the same as 5 years ago. (Tsumugu says this.) Also, he doesn't recognize Miuna. It's safe to assume he's been frozen for 5 years.

I really enjoyed this episode a lot. So much potential here!
Somehow I still feel that's not right to match Tsumugu and Chisaki together. Maybe because I don't know enough about Tsumugu yet, and for me he looks a bit "slack" to me (I don't know if it's the right word). I really think it would be nice to show more about Tsumugu. Anyway, nice episode. :D

Wow, it's getting better!

I've predicted that there will be a time skip and that they didn't age during the sleeping period, but this episode still amazed me. And I'm so happy to see Tsumugu and Chisaki is being more canon! I feel sorry for Kaname, but there's Sayu.. :p

Miuna is becoming a main character now, but I'm still hoping for Hikari to end up with Manaka.. I can't ship Hikari with anyone else

He was one of the land guys from when they were in middle school. He helped with the festival thing.


I wasn't expecting the series to go this way, but I love it.. I want to know why Hikari woke up so early.. It sounded like they were going to sleep until it was safe again but the surface is continuing to freeze. I would assume Kaname is going to wake up soon too. While I love the relationship drama, I hope they focus on what's going on too. Maybe they're going to fix it somehow?

I really hope HikarixMiuna doesn't happen. It just seems.. weird..
TsumuguxChisaki seems almost certain now and it would be pretty reasonable considering they've spent all this time together. Poor Kaname though; he just can't seem to win. KanamexSayu seems too convenient to me. Plus what Kaname did Sayu like? He seemed to put on a kind face sometimes and then was completely opposite at other moments.

Count me me in!!! When I saw the OP and the "possible" pairings (in the road scene with the 3 boys and the 3 girls), I was like, NO, Hikari should be with Manaka!! But well, I might as well slowly prepare myself to accept a Muina and Hikari route if that is that case or else, it will ruin the whole story for me.

We see Manaka under the sea.

She's crying, aka alive.

Afterwards we see an umbrella that is falling from the sky.

Miuna surprised of the event watches it falling, and we notice an hand that grabs the umbrella.

Of course, this is just an assumption of mine. But I don't think they want to kill off a character like that, it would be a waste for them.

This episode had a different feel compared to the previous episodes. Sayu and Miuna grew up really pretty. Judging from the OP, Kaname would be back too. I hope same thing goes for Manaka.

I just noticed, when the Prof asked Tsumugu why he wasn't going out with Chisaki, he said Chisaki has someone she likes, he didn't say he wasn't in love with Chisaki. So maybe, just maybe.

Surprisingly long time skip and the atmosphere change that came with it is remarkably well done. The tone has taken a bit more of a sombre edge and the new main cast, well at least for now, reflects that sense of change.

OP and ED suit the change wonderfully, overall I'm pretty impressed.

I didn't expect Hikari to come out of the sea so quickly nor that he'd be spat out onto the surface buck naked. As for the direction of his romance now, aka w/ Miuna I think his age needs to be ascertained first haha. In fact, character relations for everyone have naturally, changed over 5 years.

I think this was just what the series needed to show us, I was quite frankly getting bored towards the near end of the first half.

You know, maybe we missed something at the opening. Notice how when they are shown in the groups, Hikari is on Chisaki's right hand side. When only one person is shown, you can see chisaki is definitely looking at her right hand side. Hikari is looking at his left hand side and thats the side Chisaki is on. Thats when tsumugu and kaname gives that sad look. Maybe we are seeing a Hikari x Chisaki route possible?

Some people just don't know when to give up do they? Well, its technically not impossible but I wouldn't waste a whole lot of energy into that wishful thinking.


The most likely pairings are still Hikari x Manaka; it is highly unlikely that Manaka is dead but in the off-chance that the writer decides to do the unusual and kill her off, that will be Miuna's only chance.

They also seem to be going down the Tsumugu x Chisaki path. I thought tease from the last episode kinda came out of nowhere but depending on how they develop this, it might turn out to be the most developed relationship in this show yet. Que the drama once Kaname returns...as the Big Bad, wallowing in his pain of rejection.

On another note, when Tsumugu first fished Manaka out of the sea, Hikari said something about that encounter being a "very special meeting." At first I thought he actually meant something by it but now he might had just been talking out of his ass.

I find Manaka's situation rather unique. I feel as though she'll be the one to guide the rest of them in the future from another place. I don't feel as though she'll be able to come back permanently.

Now then, I feel the meeting itself was more directed toward the relations between the land and sea people rather than the kids themselves.

It was just a thought that came to my mind when i was raping the reply button on the Opening song. I don't think Manaka is dead, but maybe she will appear in the last episode in which she says her last words to Hikari. What she wanted to tell him after the thing. THen she will have to leave for good.

( I know that the sea people are the ones that are gonna live just some people in the show now say that sea people don't exist.) Scientist usually mean bad news.

Wow. Miuna and Chisaki are pretty. Tsumugi is lucky to have her in his home. She's like the perfect waifu. I would ike it if she goes out with him, but that is very slim chance.

It only seems slim because of all the possible ships going around. With the occasional octagon lol.

Welcome back Hikari...

And... Chisaki is a serious wife material

Did the OP just indicate that Manaka might be alive?
