Nagi no Asukara Episode 26 Impressions

Nagi no Asukara Episode 26 – The Color Of The Sea. The Color Of The Land. The Color Of The Wind. The Color Of The Heart. The Color Of You. After almost half a year Nagi no Asukara has finally come to an end and it’s been an emotional ride. It’s been beautiful since the start but the show has gone from a curious tale of childhood friends from under the sea to a series that did its best ...

Nagi no Asukara Episode 25 Impressions

Nagi no Asukara Episode 25 – Love is Like the Sea With the second last episode of the series we’re now approaching the end. After the incredibly well-done previous episode I feel like this one was a bit disappointing. Loose ends are being wrapped up but in a fairly anti-climactic way, at least compared with the awesome Kaname and Sayu interaction. Nevertheless Nagi no Asukara is still an emo...

Nagi no Asukara Episode 24 Impressions

Nagi no Asukara Episode 24 – Detritus What a confession! And no, not the awkward blunder that Tsumugu started at the end of the last episode (you can’t just grab someone like that!), but the sleeper hit couple Kaname and Sayu. For the first time I think Nagi no Asukara has established itself as great romance anime, rather than leaving everything with loose ends and tears. And there’s s...

Nagi no Asukara Episode 23 Impressions

Nagi no Asukara Episode 23 – Who Do These Feelings Belong To? See the title of this episode? Those feelings belong to us, the viewers, as the show approaches its emotional finale. All those pent-up emotions that our characters have been dragging, tied to a cannon ball, across the seabed for 3 months have finally start to burst out. Only a little, mind you, like a leaking dam. No doubt there&...

Nagi no Asukara Episode 22 Impressions

Nagi no Asukara Episode 22 – Something Lost It’s been a while since the last time we were given an information dump in this anime but in case your brain was getting a little bored, here’s another one! Lots of revelations in episode 22 and just as the title suggest we finally discover what Manaka has really lost since waking up from her slumber. And no, it’s not her wallet. ...

Nagi no Asukara Episode 21 Impressions

Nagi no Asukara Episode 21 – The Messenger from the Bottom of the Sea It’s been so long since we’ve seen Manaka and I can’t be the only one that’s struggling to get used to her character all over again. She’s the only moe archetype in the anime and seeing her act all cute and dumb (in a nice way) feels so odd. So here’s the 21st episode, marking for the fi...

Nagi no Asukara Episode 20 Impressions

Nagi no Asukara Episode 20 – The Sleeping Beauty What an apt title for this episode. After a brief sidestep in the previous episode, the focus is back on the sleeping Manaka following her rescue in episode 18. As the third and final member of the Sea Village friends awakens (more on that later), I’d like to bring attention to something way more important – Miuna with her hair dow...

Nagi no Asukara Episode 19 Impressions

Nagi no Asukara Episode 19 -The Lost, Lost Little… Following episode 18’s eventful conclusion, Manaka has finally been brought back to the surface but she still remains in a deep slumber, unable to wake up. After a close examination, it appears she has indeed lost her ena but is otherwise healthy and expected to wake up soon. But this episode isn’t about that. The anime’s p...

Nagi no Asukara Episode 18 Impressions

Nagi no Asukara Episode 18 – Shioshishio There is something oddly peaceful about turning on Nagi no Asukara every week. In comparison with every other anime currently airing, it’s incredibly quiet and thoughtful. But also beautiful and sad at the same time as you have this constant feeling of not knowing where this is all heading. True to this formula, this episode has Hikari, Kaname a...

Nagi no Asukara Episode 17 Impressions

Nagi no Asukara Episode 17 – The Sick Two The more things change the more they stay the same. Or something like that. This episode really had the audience dwelling on change and whether it’s something we should expect to happen naturally, or a force to resist in order for one to remain themselves. But more importantly, it featured plenty of Sayu so that gives me an excuse to post her m...

Nagi no Asukara Episode 16 Impressions

Nagi no Asukara Episode 16 – The Whispers of the Faraway Waves I’m so glad Nagi no Asukara is continuing this anime season. I don’t think there’s anything else currently airing that’s quite like it. It truly has become something really precious as we progress into the second half. By temporarily removing some of the main characters, Nagi no Asukara has the time to dev...

Nagi no Asukara Episode 15 Impressions

Nagi no Asukara Episode 15 – The Protector of Smiles Following on from the previous episode’s shocking return of Hikari, episode 15 is all about him getting the lay of the land after a five year absence while others are still coming to terms with the fact that he hasn’t changed in the slightest. The protector of smiles. The title refers to the now-14-year old Miuna who continues ...
